29-Story 17th Street Apartment Tower Submitted To The FAA At 370 Feet Above Ground

A 29-story apartment tower near downtown Miami and Wynwood has been submitted to the Federal Aviation Administration for review.

17th Street Tower will rise 370 feet above ground, or around 380 to 390 feet above sea level, the application states.

Construction is estimated to begin in February 2020 and be complete by June 2022, according to the filing.

The project is planned to be built next to the recently completed Canvas condo tower. Around 467 deeds have been recorded at the 512-unit Canvas since the beginning of this year.

17th Street Tower will include 4,500 square feet commercial or retail space on the ground floor, with a garage of 224 parking spaces above that. The tower will have 252 rental apartments, with four floors of office totaling 38,307 square feet of space at the top.

NR Investments, which built Canvas, is the developer. Zyscovich is the architect.

Here is a little story, my company sold a few units at Canvas and I was there when one of their representatives assured one of my clients that his view would NOT be obstructed for years and years to come. After we got back to my office I told him to disregard that, if you buy anything in Miami, unless it is next to water, the view will be obstructed sooner that you think. So when I opened this article I was not surprised at all. He is facing West, so he is good for now, but I would not be surprised if next month another building gets approved across the street. This area is going to be as dense as Brickell by the 2030s, no doubt.

A little research, due diligence would be nice for your clients.

It’s pretty obvious that neighborhood will fill up with towers and block some views.

Their diligence should be done by the agent who is getting paid by helping them find a place. On the other hand common sense should tell everyone that views are only temporary when living in Downtown.

Yeah, the people with the cemetary view are fine, but the people with the cement factory/Overtown view must be pissed.

Should you trust a developer that blocks your view a year later?

Why not? You have to be a fool not to know that when you buy an urban infill building you dont get open views.
I suspect that the 467 buyers knew what they were getting into when they bought here.

Why does it look so much shorter than Canvas in that one render? Canvas is 400′ tall.

the person/company that was going to develop on it got sued or went bankrupt a year ago, so not sure now.

The cemetary? Or the often failed land next to cemetary?
Eventually, it will be successfully developed.

The tower itself is decent, but the parking podium sucks. Canvas is better, and it isn’t covered in random crap.

The United States of America will always have cars and be car culture, because cars are big business so they won’t be disappearing anytime soon.

Good. I like my car and car centric cities- with good roads and highways (which car owners pay via taxes)- they allow for independence and create countess jobs (dealers, mechanics, road workers, tow trucks, valets, car washers, gas stations, etc.)

I want mass transit too but stop hating on cars.

The impediment to Miami becoming a more transit centric city isn’t lots of parking; it’s lack of good transit. Fail to include enough parking in one of these buildings and people will just Uber everywhere – or pick a building that has it. Got to induce a transit-centric lifestyle with more infill and better transit options first.

Doesn’t uber use cars? Its basically a taxi cab with a fancy name. Why would I want to have a stranger come to my home address to give me a ride on the same crowded highways when I am much safer driving myself free of charge with the freedom to travel wherever and whenever I choose? Nothing against good rapid transit, but uber, lift, and the like is not it.

Why should developers stop making garages when the rail system doesn’t connect large portions of South Florida.

Forget it.. most of the people on this site who complain about these new projects with parking have a parking spot or spots to park in where they live. They’re just whining just for the sake of whining.

The parking podiums aren’t going to help anyone when they have to leave their buildings, unless we get flying cars – in which case only the residents of Panorama are good.

These buildings are built for people. People have bank accounts, 1st, Last, and security deposits.
Cars do not.
So think more deeply. Try this….
“Another giant development for people who are different than I am, who demand to have space for their car.”

Consider, that some people have small children, and use their cars when traveling to the emergency room, school, soccer, Abuela’s house, etc.
If a person has the means to do so, they generally prefer the freedom and liberty to have their own vehicle.

Some people either do not have the means to afford their own car, have all the time in the world to rely on public transportation, OR, find it morally superior to advocate against buildings that provide parking for PEOPLE. Either way, it is fine. Just please spare the pixels, and stop posting about people who can afford cars and the developers who market to those people.
