36-story Block 45 Tower Finishes Review By Miami’s Planning Department

Overtown’s Block 45 project is one step closer to breaking ground after Miami’s Planning Department completed review of the project.

Now, a construction permit must be obtained before work can begin. There doesn’t appear to be any pending permit application with Miami’s Building Department.

A final decision must also be issued by the Planning Department.

The 36-story tower will include 616 apartments, 24,981 square feet of retail, and 637 parking spaces.

It was reviewed by the Urban Development Review Board in September 2019.

The developers won a bid to build on the county-owned property, and have promised an aggressive construction schedule.

Bermello Ajamil is the architect.

I thought financial diversity was good for a neighborhood? There has been a good number of affordable units constructed in Overtown; including new retail.

Plenty of $150K condos along Kendall Drive for workforce housing. You simply cannot expect to have cheap new construction in the middle of a big metro’s downtown center or along a coastline.

If you become “King” none of the land would be county owned because YOU would own all of it and then we’ll all go back to living as if we were in 1700’s Europe.

Um, you do realize urban planning consensus is NOT to encourage concentrations of housing of one income level? Why do you think failed housing projects like Pork and Beans are being redeveloped to include market-rate units?

Compared to other crap like that Swerdlow proposal and one laughably calling itself “luxury,” this is beautiful.
