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.
