45-Story Carlos Zapata Tower, 30-Story Residential Tower Planned By NR Investments

NR Investments is planning several more high-rise projects in the area near where there Canvas condo tower is currently under construction.

Carlos Zapata has designed a 45-story tower with 457 residential condominium units at 31 N.E. 14th Street (Across from Melo’s under construction Square Station), the developer told the SFBJ. Also at the site will be an 11-story tower with 150 hotel rooms, along with 30,000 square feet of office space.

Condos are being designed for end users who will actually live there, with smaller sizes and lower prices. Office space is being added so that residents can work near their homes.

The shorter hotel tower is being placed next to a historical firehouse, keeping the taller tower away from it.

A 30-story residential tower is also being planned by the developer at another nearby site, located at 70 and 90 N.E. 17th Street (blocking some views from Canvas).

The second project would include 225 residential units, 8,000 square feet retail and some office space. The developer has yet to decide if it will be condo or rental.

Both projects require rezoning. Miami’s Planning, Zoning & Appeals Board voted in favor of both at a meeting on October 16.

Take Note Developers!!!
Lower priced Units does not mean Ugly buildings!
Great Design by Zapata as always!

Can you please clarify what an infill dev refers to?

Opposite of outfill.

away from the water, which is where most development has occurred

Has nothing to do with proximity to water. Infill refers to development of existing space (e.g., vacant or underdeveloped land) adjacent to previously developed developed sites, generally in urban areas. Colloquially, infill fills in empty spots.

Thanks for the explanation LongMIA. It definitely makes sense. Miami needs a lot of infill development, especially in the area from the Design District all the way down to Brickell, not to mention Little Havana. These areas are full of empty lots looking horrible and making the city unwalkable, unsafe and not very attractive looking

Anyone who buys at Canvas or any other building in this area has to be aware that most of their “views” will be obstructed in the coming years. The density in this neighborhood will be on par with what Brickell looks like today.

People need to realize that they’re living in city. Kinda hard to keep everyone happy with views of the water. It’s a growing city. What do they expect…

Very well said Danny, besides, it’s not like that building will block the entire view. The more dense an area, the skyline the better the views from a high rise. I mean, NYC has great apartments and they are praised by their views and it’s not a view of the river.

it’s funny that I was thinking the same thing this morning while driving. Park Lofts is now completely in the shadow of the new towers built closer to biscayne. Now the view is not necessarily blocked but not having sunlight hit the windows might be a bit of a bummer I think. Its amazing how small park lofts looks now compared to what is going on around it. and with this new tower to the south, park lofts will be in shadow for most of the day, maybe that appeals to some from a heat gain aspect but I find it a bit depressing.

This should have happened as soon as Metrorail got built but developers didn’t take heed and instead they started building in Doral. Makes no sense. If traffic is bad in Doral now, wonder how it’s going to be in 2 years when they add 25,000 new residents. Pity them!!!!

I might be wrong but I believe our grandsons will be 75 y/o when our locals politicians will come to an agreement on when to start the Doral Metrorail extension.

Here’s another view of the planned building: http://bit.ly/2xZduRv It looks great, almost Blade Runner-like. Can anyone tell me what the circular roof is for? A waterfall over the pool? A helicopter landing pad? Or is it just for fun, like the stuff we find in Mimo and Art Deco? In any event, I hope it makes the final cut when building starts.

It looks like it’ll be a nice tower with curves all in the right places and utilization of the old fire station’s airspace by cantilevering over it. It’ll be a shame to see that classic 1920s apartment house destroyed, but if the current proposal stays, it’s an acceptable sacrifice.

These new tower residents need to be aware of Club Space and Club Heart, because they will need earplugs.
Time for these two crap holes to go somewhere else…………

Those clubs will have no effect on these buildings tranquility. You’re probably one of those people who do nothing but stay home and watch TV every night and hate the youngsters because you’re too old to hangout and party with them.

Miami Herald had a story of residents of luxury tower’s nearby (Marquee, 1040, 800, 888 Biscayne) with those who face west being woken up night after night by the clubs…

We live here now and the clubs need to change – fully enclosed rooms and lowered volume.

Hurricane glass makes no difference to bass noise. It comes down to respect for all residents and enforcing noise codes in place.
