53-Story M Tower Submitted For UDRB Review

Downtown 56, LLC is moving forward with plans to develop a 53-story mixed-use building called M Tower in downtown Miami.

The developer submitted plans late last month for the project to Miami’s Urban Development Review Board. The board meeting to review the project is scheduled for next week.

According to the plans prepared by architect Zyscovich, the 628-foot tower is to include 440 residential units, 25,000 square feet of office space, and ground floor retail.

The project is proposed as part of the redevelopment of the Miami Parking Authority Cultural Center Garage at 70 Southwest First St. Downtown 56 owns adjacent land and was selected as the winning bidder after an RFP from the MPA.

Downtown 56 lists Jorge Brugo of Axis Realty Trust (a principal behind the Pi Art Tech bid for Miami Dade College’s 520 Biscayne) as a contact.

The design is ok, but what i love about this project is that they would be revitalizing a sleepy area…so go for it!!
BTW, are the condos or apts??

In one of the renderings it looked like there wasn’t any pedestrian-oriented design. A big parking garage won’t revitalize the area as best as it could.

Downtown buildings should have no parking.
We’ll never be a pedestrian, mass transit oriented city unless we stop building parking lots. Or at best limit them.

In this case the tower is being built where a current City of Miami parking garage stands. The City of Miami is giving them air rights over the garage, but they want to have the existing public parking lot replaced as part of the tower. I believe the garage would be built by the developer but still owned and operated as a public parking garage by the Parking Authority.

Actually, the parking garage is existing and will be getting a new skin. The tower is going on the empty lot next door.

500 people living in the area will attract more; they will soon demand adjacent retail…and boom, another neighborhood is born
