688-Unit Apartment Complex Proposed On Miami River

Mast Capital has submitted a proposal for a 688-unit apartment complex on the Miami River.

The eight-story project would be built in two phases on what is currently a vacant lot.

In addition to apartments, it would also include 780 parking spaces (a 30% reduction from requirements due to transit proximity), and 2,795 square feet of retail.

Mast is in contract to purchase the 6.31 acre lot, which is within walking distance of Marlins Stadium.

Miami’s UDRB is scheduled to review the plans January 17. Corwil Architects is the architect.

The real question is whether they will give up some park land on that one corner. They initially said they would then at the last minute they took it out! Not a good precedent to set.

I knew it, I knew it… somebody had to mention the word “park.”

Jesus Christ man, there are plenty of parks all over the place. Give it a rest, please!

Well Oscar, I’m sorry your life is lacking a park somewhere in Miami to go on picnics.

Yawn………

Public transportation to this area would be so nice.

Cut the suburban thinking… The Complex will have a supermarket and the street will have those super innovative things called “street lights”

Amenities (playgrounds, courts) in the open space and a pick-up and drop-off area (Uber) would be nice….

Wish there was a evening public transit service for 8th street. I’ve been frequenting the area lately but always have to drive.

Looks quite solid, albeit maybe a little too rustic. I would have liked something taller like Terrazas or River Oaks up the river, but Spring Garden would be against it.

Weird that this project made it on here but the one finishing up directly across the river never did.

Yeah, and a lot more proposed projects would’ve been built if they’ve been kept hush-hush so that all of these whiny-ass people in Miami wouldn’t have had their two cents to say.

Nice scale, however, a 90% parking reduction would be even better!

Totally reasonable! I’m sure all 688 units could share 30 or 40 spaces in this unwalkable area with no public transport! Great plan!

Building all that parking is permanent. Lack of transit is not, and could be fixed.

Great, you can go develop a property that has a transit solution that may or may not show up ten years down the road. Let me know how it works out for you!

Do you think or just type in feelgood buzzwords?

The swimming pool should be at the rooftop

It does look like it will get limited sunlight between buildings…

Yeah, because a kid whose dying from drowning in a “rooftop pool” can wait until ambulance rescue workers go up an elevator to get to him/her.
