20-Story Mixed-Use Tower With Micro Lofts Planned On Flagler Street

Developers Todd Michael Glaser and Posner Group are planning a 20-story mixed-use project on the corner of West Flagler Street and Northwest Eighth Avenue.

Plans call for 100 rental micro-units ranging in size from 360 square feet to 500 square feet.

The bottom floor will have commercial space, topped by parking. Above that will be an amenity level and apartments.

Glaser and his partners are now working with the city on approvals. Construction is estimated to take 18 months.

Francisco Lladó and Robert Moehring as Principals at DOMO Architecture + Design are the architects.

Great design and great height.
It will be very appealing and bring life to the western part of downtown

This area will see great appreciation in the next cycle. It’s a natural with close proximity and easy access to everything. Smart investors should definitely consider what will happen here in the next 10 years.

Pretty awesome for the area…

This area is still on the edge but the potential is infinite. You can literally walk to downtown and Brickell. I can see the encroachment of the area by downtown, Little Havana, Brickell and the Civic Center.

Little Havana has so much potential but developers have taken so long to invest here.

What a complete ripoff of the New Museum in New York City

That’s where I’ve seen it! It looked so familiar. Exactly the same

Micro units are ok if you wanna live in downtown and you can’t affort to pay high rents but this location is not downtown so why would you wanna live in a walking closet in the middle of nowhere

Eh. It’s a very short Uber into downtown or a quick bike ride. If it’s winter time, then it’s a reasonable walk.

It’s also very close to the Civic Center area. Many medical and phd students are always looking for places nearby.

What the area needs is a Metromover Loop, build it and watch Little Havana explode with development. The loop can be financed with all the added value tax…

Why not extend Metrorail with a new line as originally intended? At Government Center Station, an unused east-west platform already exists.

Cause Metrorail would just be a straight through shot through Little Havana with a couple of stops at most. It would not cover all of the neighborhood. Metromover can offer more stops going west on Flagler from Govt Center to Marlins Park then south on 17th Ave to 8th St and go east to Brickell Station.

If you want a loop, offer shuttle buses at the Metrorail stations. Better yet and more cost efficient, reinstate streetcar lines which used to loop through the area.

driving through this area recently – no offense to the people that inhabit this part of town, but Miami has so much potential of these ugly buildings were razed and new housing and tower development were carried out. So much land in this town is occupied with crap structures.

There’s quite a lot of empty lots in that area that developers can start with.

Vacant land priced quite expensively for developers. Plus, Miami 21’s 1.5 parking per dwelling unit.

If you mean the charming 1920s buildings scattered across the landscape, you are a fool. If you mean the crummy ones built from the 1950s to 1970s, assemble land and tear them down for nice infill. Yes the neighborhood is underutilized, but should be redeveloped appropriately.

Agree, keep the good architecture, get rid of the bad

It looks loud and more like it belongs in Wynwood. I know expectations for the area are pretty low and is across from a self-storage facility, but try to aspire to be like Intown or something.
