428-Unit Nexus Riverside Submitted To FAA, With Crane Installation Estimated In January 2022

It looks like the 36-story Nexus Riverside apartment tower is getting closer to beginning construction.

The developer submitted several applications to the Federal Aviation Administration on August 24 for approval to install a tower crane, and for a permanent building height.

Tower crane installation is estimated on January 1, 2022, the filing states.

Two cranes are estimated to rise 588 feet and 531 feet above ground at their highest.

The tallest permanent point of the tower itself is planned at 413 feet above ground, where mechanical equipment will be located, a separate filing states.

An application for a building permit was filed with the city on July 29, listing an affiliate of Mill Creek Residential as the contractor.

According to the pending permit application, Nexus Riverside’s first tower will have 428 apartments.

However, the full plans do not yet appear to have been filed, and therefore aren’t yet being reviewed by Miami’s Building Department.

In June, the developer agreed to a deal with Miami-Dade’s water and sewer department to connect the new project to the county’s utility system.

Based on what’s there now, basically a homeless toilet, this lackluster design is still a massive improvement…

Has the city ever pursued the idea? Or is that something only we loooooosers with too much time on our hands think about? I can’t imagine the mayor or any commish giving a rat’s ass about aesthetics.

Yes but they won’t, they want it as a middle finger to the citizens of Miami that they are in control

It’s FPL property. The land is not city owned.

Miami is getting way more good looking high rises. Legacy, Una residences, brickell office tower, Aston Martin residences, Waldorf Astoria, etc. Obviously there is plenty of basic filler too but it’s not like every design is ugly.

I don’t know, Riverwalk Place was scrapped for what is probably recycled Arquitectonica excrement from a flip job down here. Same in WPB with One West Palm. Tampa even has its own ugly Melo-tier residential buildings like Nine15.

Why, why, WHY does a building less than 500 feet tall east of 95 need FAA approval? We need a rule to speed up this arduous, unnecessary process, that any building of such height east of a certain point is per se approved. This is ridiculous.

The river keeps growing! The site next to the wharf has been fully demolished and I saw the first cars cross the new SW 1st bridge this morning!

All I wanna see is proof that the more apartments hit the market, the lower rents become.

All I wanna see is proof that requiring a certain percentage of rentals to be “affordable” and imposing rent controls decreases homelessness.

Where does it say that deeming a certain amount of new units in a building for the purpose of making them affordable and imposing rent control, decreases homelessness?
