688 Apartments About To Begin Construction, Along With Extension To River Walk

The Miami River Walk is about to get an extension, after a 688-unit apartment project obtained a construction loan.

Mast Capital, in a joint venture with AEW Capital Management, obtained a $59.7 million construction loan from PNC Bank, the developers announced yesterday.

As part of the project, 1,100 feet of riverfront improvements will be made at the 6.8-acre site, including an extension to the riverwalk and public pathways to the riverfront from the on-road greenway on the west and east side yards.

The first phase of the project will break ground in early 2019 and include 346 residential units.

Eventually, a second phase will bring the total unit count to 688 residential units.

Residents will have access to over an acre of green space, shared office space, and a free water shuttle service.

“The Miami Health District is the second largest medical district in the country and has been underserved with quality, well amenities housing,” said Camilo Miguel Jr., CEO of Mast Capital. “The Miami River Walk will present a convenient live, work, play choice for the thousands of local health professionals working in the area.”

Corwil is the architect.

71K/unit financing means they are doing all the sea wall work and infrastructure now. This is great for the area and appropriate. Go Miami.

Very nice. There’s a lot of developable land just west of the Civic Center area as well.

That’s technically East Little Havana but I guess they can charge more for units if they call that the “Health District.” File that next to “West Brickell.”

This will have retail. The river frontage works best as residential and hotel space with retail on ground level along riverwalk.

It’s great that Miami is starting to create more wellness-lifesyle communities. It would be helpful if possible to mention the general contractors for these projects, its important to some customers to know who built the project, aside from that I appreciate the updates.

At a glance it looks like a development you’d expect to see on the canal by Dadeland.

I hope we start to see more projects this scale that cover more real estate. Miami has so many empty lots, more projects like this can fill more of those ugly gaps.
