3600 Biscayne Gets FAA, UDRB Approval

A proposal to build a multi-family tower at 3600 Biscayne Boulevard has received approval from the UDRB and FAA.

According to an FAA letter sent to developer Pacific Star Capital on January 30, the tower is permitted to rise 231 feet above ground, or 242 feet above sea level.

The UDRB conditions for recommending approval at its December meeting were:

  • Revisit corner(southeast) entrance to make it a prominent plaza.
  • Integrate green space more meaningfully and purposefully.
  • Remove ramp and introduce flood panels at the ground floor.
  • Add a covered walkway on the 5th floor for commercial/gym use.
  • Integrate architectural language between tower and podium.

3600 Biscayne is proposed to rise 18 stories and include:

  • 175 dwelling units
  • 36,682 square feet of commercial, including one 26,386 square foot space that the developer says may be a grocery store
  • parking podium with 366 spaces

Alfonso Jurado Architecture is the architect.

I wouldn’t live there if you paid me. The Biscayne/36th St. intersection is an absolute mess already, without this building adding to the chaos.

I would sign a lease in a second. Walkable, single seat ride downtown and the beach? Not to mention the rapid transit station at 38th.

I’m with you on the walkability, but not following on the single seat ride downtown. Are you referring to the planned mover extension? That’s not going to be ready for at least another 10 years, if it happens at all.

the 36 runs frequent service from 4am to 1am
3 and 4 are 24/7

I’ve used both and it’s 30 minutes downtown and 40 to the beach.

There’s another large tower going up across at the gas station, that mixed with the popular mid town and design district with the only ramps for the highway being right there and they are constantly backed up onto the highway it’s going to get worse. But atleast tri rail/brightline will be servicing the area soon for a north/south pressure release but cars are a big problem here.

And all of Midtown and Wynwood, for those of us with the ability to walk more than 3 blocks!

the amount of traffic in this one area is going to be insane if they add a grocery store.

If anything it’ll cut the amount of car trips people living nearby have to make via car. We should focus on making Miami more walkable with more amenities nearby, not blocking construction because we think it’ll cause car traffic. If traffic is the problem just move to Wyoming, tons of open roads up there.

The gridlock at the NE 2nd and 36 street is terrible. Going north on 2nd Ave is slow every day because the intersection gets blocked. Awful!

You choose to be one person taking up all the space driving a car on that route everyday. Choose a different vehicle, please. You are part of the problem

Great density but the traffic concerns/ in these comments serve as a great reminder of how important it is that the city/county responds to the growth with transit solutions (opening the midtown rail stop and extending the mover) to mitigate traffic in an already congested and rapidly growing area.

Good for density. Bad for design. I give it a B- overall.

Better than the Whole Foods Market building down the street, or that awful box of a proposal across Biscayne Boulevard taking the place of a few handsome prewar homes. Still waiting on an update of the imaginative proposal directly across Biscayne Boulevard.

It’s wild how many buildings this area is getting – I didn’t expect it to develop as fast as it is

You can thank the SMART plan, metromover upgrade, and BBN.

Get back to me in 5 years and I’ll eat a sock. It’s nearly shovel ready once the upgrade project is done

shovel ready not the same as has allocated funding

No way this happens in 5 years. If you’re new here, your optimism could be forgiven, but you really need to learn how politics in this city work. In 5 years, I’d be surprised if they even have funding allocated, let alone the time needed for construction. We’re looking at a decade at the bare minimum.

Well, the building isn’t a quadrilateral box and the windows and balconies line up, I’ll give it that. Still, too much of a filler for the gateway to Edgewater.
