Zero vision from City of Miami.

Seattle would have build multiple light rail lines by now. There is *zero* plan for any mass transit.

The Coastal Link should be going at 100% – put all the people and money needed to get it done.

Real / protected bike infrastructure is needed. Let’s get this done. Too much going on in this corridor.

Yes, developers should wait to invest in that area once the price of the land and construction doubles.
We can’t blame the developers for our politicians’ incompetence. At the end, we are the ones who keep voting them.

Soooooo true… Why oh why do these people keep their positions…?????….because most people are trying so hard to just survive they don’t really know much about the candidate and just vote a familiar name… We need young forward thinkers in office asap

Biscayne could have 93Max express buses running every 4 minutes almost immediately. Add off board fare collection, and it would be comparable to a light rail line.
Only problem is not enough people would ride it.

yes, that’s known. That’s why we need a dedicated ROW for fixed rail …

With rail, the investments been made and it can’t be taken away.

15x an hour bus service could easily be cut. A train can’t.

OK, make the bus free and see if people ride it, fares only cover a quarter of operating costs and no capital costs anyway.
If free is still too expensive, people aren’t going to pay to ride light rail in 5 to 10 years when service start.

People want rail not buses. Why can’t our politicians understand that>

People want reliable, right of way transit, with sufficient headway. Be it a bus or a train it doesn’t matter. Miami right now doesn’t have any of those things. Its ridiculous that I have to wait 20 min for a metro-rail train at 9 Pm on a Saturday to go to brickell. Until the things that I mentioned above change people will not use transit. I certainly would use a BRT system up and down Biscayne if it had pre-paid boarding and its own dedicated lane along with Street light prioritization.

A light train on NW 7th Av could be a commuting alternative between downtown and Aventura. Will also encourage the redevelopment of the corridor.

There were plans to increase the population density along the Biscayne Corridor, but the Segregated neighborhoods (Morningside, BelleMeade, Miami Shores) east of Biscayne destroyed it with the 35 FT Height restriction in the MiMo District.

What do you mean by segregated? They are all < 50% white.

The Upper East Side as a whole, yes (skewed with Little Haiti). However, said neighborhoods are predominantly White and White Hispanic compared to the “other side of the tracks,” and gentrification like the following possible redevelopment will change it.

As predicted, Elvis Cruz and the pathetic Morningside Civic Association wasted all their little political capital, energy, and money screwing the moderate MiMo Corridor redevelopment, without knowing they were cleaning the path for much bigger and powerful developers who will literally chew them alive.

Yup, that’s why there’s going to be a low income apartment building next to Soyka’s instead of the beautiful Boulevard 57 condo that was planned after Kubik.

And a Crappy four-story section 8 like building next to The Legion Park.

The speculators proposing the ugly rental building near Legion Park are going to ruin the Upper East Side. They planned dumpsters and a/c units facing the historic park.

To be fair, Boulevard 57 was awful. If something taller was allowed, it would have been so much better. Ain’t nothing wrong with good linear development, which you see in Los Angeles along major corridors surrounded by low-rise neighborhoods. Of course, we also need transit like a streetcar along Biscayne, circulating into Miami Beach.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Oh God, can we go one conversation without hearing the words “street car” or “Baylink”? It’s we get, we get it…

Look at what the FLL version of the MorningSide Mafia did to the Wave Streetcar. Those people are a plague to the society.

Hopefully they’ll keep land for green space. This is a good project, I like to see the tendency to have more high density development in the city of Miami, instead of doing it in the suburbs.

Don’t hold your breath that the American Dreamers close it any time soon. Cheers

Not another monster mall?

Terrible news. Did the deal close? Or in due diligence?

They should have bought the “Section 8 Look-Alike” Design Place apartments just to the north. At least there is no 3 story height restriction as imposed by so faux Mimo historic district on the Boulevard.

Redevelopment plans already exist for Design Place, assuming no-growthers don’t try and get it designated historic as “MiMo” (AKA crappy auto-centric post-war architecture), meanwhile legit architecture of historic value is destroyed left and right in Riverside/Little Havana.

Just curious, what are they building there?

They’re proposing a 22 acres SAP with 2,800 apartments, 400,000 sf of commercial space, and 28 stories (Eastridge is the name), but don’t hold your breath. A lot of arrows coming their way courtesy of the neighbors. Owned by a New York City slumlord. Cheers

D Place AKA Sabal Palm Apartments is zoned T-5. Five story heigh limit.

The area needs major clean up. We can’t shop at publix without fear of being mugged in the parking lot.
