42-Story Edgewater Tower Submitted For Construction Permit, Contractor Named

A 42-story apartment tower proposed at 1775 Biscayne Boulevard has quickly moved to the construction permitting phase,

Plans for the apartment high rise were submitted for an Urban Development Review Board hearing just days ago, with the meeting scheduled for September 20.

According to the construction permit application submitted on September 13, the tower has an estimated hard construction cost of $150M, with Coastal Construction listed as the contractor.

The UDRB filing shows the tower is proposed to top off at 451 feet and include:

  • 544 rental apartments
  • 10,106 square feet of ground-floor retail
  • 628-space parking garage

ODP is the architect. KAS is doing interior design.

Groundbreaking is planned in Q2 2024.

I can’t wait. We really need to fill in those big empty lots in that part of Biscayne Blvd.

No we don’t, there’s a ton of buildings in downtown and brickell. We are over building north.

These factors are determined by market demand.

No it’s determined by where developers can buy cheap abandoned land and where the city zones and up zoned development, which it’s doing too much of north. It’s empty there and far from the core.

In other words, cheaper land because it has less desirable infrastructure, which ends up being a double-edged sword.

I’m frustrated by the city’s development scheme north of the city. There’s a lack of infrastructure, and the city is allowing haphazard growth without any metro mover, even though there’s more valuable land with better views west of Brickell and downtown. While it might be cost-effective for developers, it could become more expensive for the city in the long run, considering the underutilized land with infrastructure and better walkability closer to the core.

There is no “development scheme” – developers are free to purchase whatever land is for sale and build what they want on that land as long as it is code compliant.

What it sounds like you want is the government to actually step in and tell people where and what they can build – that’s called a dictatorship.

Maybe that’s the issue, “no development scheme” but it seems more of a hush-hush development scheme.

In Miami apparently it’s determined by whomever bribes the Commissioners like Alex Diaz and Mayor Suárez, instead of where the market demands.

« We really need to fill in those big empty lots » 🤷🏻‍♂️ Well, I definitively don’t think that is an emergency my friend. Already so many units for sale around.

Too much supply in the north expansion zone, not around the Brickell and downtown core

I wasn’t aware this was being built in the Caribbean. The specific area doesn’t even have a connection to the Afro-Caribbean diaspora community. You’re comparison is about as far-fetched as Arquitectonica boxes being “inspired” by MiMo and palm trees.

Yes this is a suburb, it was annexed by city of Miami because it was where lawlessness and alcoholics went to go wild.

“ Prior to the annexation of this land by the city of Miami in 1913, it would have been a part of North Miami. North Miami was defined as land north of today’s fourteenth street, which was just north of the original Miami city limits. North Miami did not have alcohol restrictions, so it was a haven for saloons and raucous behavior in the early years following the incorporation of Miami.”

Suppose something’s change but others stay the same…

Sustainable Miami Future is on the River

Suggesting that developers and the city should increase incentives for riverwalk development and rezone areas west of I-95 to create a more compact and organized central core, instead of excessive vertical expansion where infrastructure is lacking. Miami needs to halt its northward expansion and focus on revitalizing the picturesque riverwalk land by encouraging rezoning and inspiring developers to creatively utilize the Live Local law for masterplanned neighborhood centers along the river. It’s essential to prioritize the original city of Miami, ensuring a world-class urban design for the core, before haphazardly creating new neighborhoods and extending the metro mover system, especially when we already have it in the Riverside area.

It looks imbalanced and dated, but it’s about time this land gets improved and adds much needed inventory. The streets need to be managed to discourage through traffic with speed mitigation and other pedestrian safety protocols as people speed turning off and onto Biscayne trying to make the light as people carry their groceries from Publix across the street.

Nobody is walking here. Build a Whole Foods and and Trader Joe’s in the riverside area west of Brickell. We have no where to get food and so many people!

Yes. It is a speed corridor. But, not as bad as 10th and Biscayne which is another 20 MPH faster.

There’s a commuter rail with a stop in Wynwood coming. Along with several billion dollars worth of development.
