350-Unit Residential Building Proposed At Brightline Aventura

Plans were filed yesterday for a residential building steps from the new Brightline Aventura station.

The new residential project is proposed to rise to a maximum height of 17 stories and include

  • 350 residential units
  • 5,682 square feet of commercial space
  • 545 parking spaces in a 7-level garage

Corwil is the architect. 13th Floor Investments is the developer.

The developers are requesting a pre-application meeting with Miami-Dade Planners, with the goal of Administrative Site Plan review.

This is the kind of height I would like to see more in Wynwood. If anybody have a problem with that, then express your disagreement.

It’s already the case in West Brickell (although there could be better architecture), and along Southwest 3rd Avenue in South Brickell. It continue along Coral Way and all major Miami thoroughfares, especially through Little Havana and Allapattah.

I disagree sir. A taller height limit, means taller buildings, which means higher land values. Which means less lots get developed. Empty lots makes it patchy, lacks sense of community and human scale. It’s betters to keep it around 8 stories, but redevelop more. Than just make a few towers and take decades to develop.

BORINGGGG!

Totally agree with Melo. taller buildings make traffic a nightmare, easier to become eye sores, block views and harder to maintain over time. Give the ground level where we want to attract more pedestrian activity some girth! Build better communities.

>>545 parking spaces in a 7-level garage

Come on. If it’s to be real transit orientated development, these projects should have limited carparking.

If the Brightline tracks were part of an integrated rail system with 8 or more lines covering the urban area, I would agree with you.

would be nice to see the building another 5-7 stories. I dont see a problem with the parking situation because people are always going to have cars and brightline doesnt connect to the majority of Miami Dade area.

“and brightline doesnt connect to the majority of Miami”

And Brightline trains are not supposed to. They’re designed to take you from Miami to Orlando.

Metromover was designed to circulate Greater Downtown Miami, but the geniuses here believe it in its current low-speed, low-capacity state can take enough cars off the street extending it to connect two major population centers.

The Metromover was designed with somebody’s idea in mind. If you believe the Metromover can’t go faster than what you see, then you also believe that electric cars can only go 40mph and each one can seat 20 people and they take thousands of cars off the roads every day between two major population centers.

And some people agree with the drab you spout about the Metromover..

How is Metromover gonna go over 30 mph when nearly everyone is STANDING on it holding on to a railing???

The same way subway trains can go above 30MPH with everyone standing

Not necessary and would make the building and area look overcrowded any taller. It’s already tall at about 18 floors, and should maybe even be a few floors less. If supertalls go up everywhere SoFl could lose its character.

Besides south Miami beach all the way up to Sunny Isles and between the Design District all the way to MiamiDade Mall South, what character are you talking about?

The character you probably wouldn’t know unless you spent years appreciating the laid back and natural landscapes that are tucked away like gems across south Florida.

Us1 is called a highway for a reason. If aventura wants a Main Street then develop another one? Full disclosure, only time I’ve been to aventura was driving through it on US1 lol. It didn’t seem like the kind of Main Street that needs to be walkable.

Maybe you’re right. I’d love to spend more time there.

it should just be turned into an actual boulevard all the way down, two lanes in each direction and the rest street parking, wide sidewalks, trees and bike lanes AND METRORAIL

US1 has always been an alternate highway for those going local instead of I 95. Did you just move here? There’s usually plenty of other streets that can more easily be utilized as a boulevard.

Make Aventura traffic even worse by taking away lanes on US1—good thing you’re not in charge of anything other than the cappuccino machine over at Starfucks. I will now log in to 6 other isp’s and downvote your comment multiple times.

Seems like the wide streets aren’t helping. They can reduce it to 2 lanes in each direction and repurpose the others ones for a BRT & protected bike lanes and provide shading on the sidewalk.

It’s insane someone approved this! That many more cars in the area will make it impossible to get around, we already have road rage everywhere. This is just greed, stupidity!

To you this means “just greed and stupidity,” but to those owners of restaurants, clubs, bars, wholesale stores, and a host of other things they cater to.. this means “mo money, mo money, mo money!”

It’s in Miami Dade county. If you’re looking for only Miami posts then that would also exclude Miami Beach, sunny isle, Hal harbour, etc because those are separate municipalities from Miami.
