Another: 450-Unit The Crosby Breaks Ground At Miami Worldcenter, 100% Sold

Developers Related Group and Merrimac Ventures broke ground this morning on the 33-story Crosby Residences tower at Miami Worldcenter.

The 450-unit project is 100% sold.

Units will be delivered furnished and ready-to-rent, designed for easy listing on all homesharing platforms.

There will also be over 22,000 square feet of amenity space, including saunas, jacuzzis, cold plunge pools as well as a dedicated space for yoga and meditation. There will also be a coworking center and a juice and coffee bar.

At the top of the tower, a private rooftop restaurant and bar with “breathtaking” skyline views is planned.

No parking garage is planned to be built at The Crosby, but there will be access to nearby garages at Worldcenter.

“With all 450 units at The Crosby sold, this project follows the resounding success of our other ready-to-rent projects,” said Nick Perez, SVP of Related Group.

Cohen Freedman Encinosa is the architect, with interiors by AVRO|KO.

The Crosby is targeted for delivery in the first quarter of 2025.

Photos of the groundbreaking ceremony were taken by Ryan RC Rea and are available here.

Less Parking Por Favor

You mean to tell me that, contrary to car enthusiasts’ incessant claims, a building with no parking is completely sold out?? Say it isn’t so.

Exactly. Locals won’t be using this building. Look at the Loft buildings… No parking but man that garage across the street is packed! People forget it’s Miami and we like our cars. Ridiculous -.-

*you* like your cars. Plenty of others like (and have voted for) public transit.

The thing about my car is….I pay for it.
The thing about public transportation is….I pay for it.

I like public transportation; sometimes. Happy to pay what it costs.
Most people have no idea of what the actual #riders divided by the annual Operating Cost number is. (forget about the capital expenditures required to buy the land, and build it in the first place).

If that number where the actual ticket price, no one would ride public transportation.

The wish list of new routes and extensions are “we need”-ed with no thought or regard to economic cost levied on the community who does not need or want more government transportation.

Cars are subsidized

Highways, roads, and streets are also government transportation where local, state, and federal monies are used to build them and users don’t pay the actual costs. Wonder how you’d feel if we tolled every road you drive, so you can pay the “real cost” like you want people to do when they take the bus..

Never heard of Gas taxes, huh? Or many of the current toll roads. Also, EVERYONE benefits from roads—need an ambulance, or a UPS delivery, or to get your kids to school?—-ROADS, not Metrosnail or a bus, gets it done.

Gas taxes AND tolls do not cover the cost of using roads. They don’t generate enough. https://taxfoundation.org/road-spending-state-funded-user-taxes-and-fees-including-federal-gas-tax-revenues

additionally, sorry, but if Miami ever really wants to be a world class city, it’s going to need some public transit…and no, one line to nowhere doesn’t count

Not all tourists want to stay in SoBe. This place is perfect for walking distance to arena, amongst other things. Metromover 2 min walk…

Still lousy architecture without a parking podium. Same with Centro. Less this this and that, and more 501 First and District 225.

Why would an Airbnb need parking?

anons

It’s a condo-hotel use and there are mandatory parking minimums I think 1.5 spaces per unit if it’s not within 1,000 feet of metromover or metrorail stops. Another issue is lenders usually have certain requirements for a project to be “feasible” such as on-site parking. Difficult to get a construction loan if you can’t demonstrate feasibility in their terms without on-site parking.

This area will be the new Brickell!

Even better as there is so much more around from the college, the museums, the theaters, the arena, the parks, the waterfront, the train station, the port, etc.
plus it’s located in between Brickell and Wynwood, Midtown and what will soon be another great area, Overtown. Definitely more potentials than Brickell.

MDC isn’t a focal point, it’s in the way, considering all the prime underutilized real estate it sits on.

No parking and it sold out!!😱😱😱 This is the way to go. I hope CitiBike will expand its bike docks presence downtown as there is never a bike available and definitely too few docks.

People who are buying here won’t be living these units. They don’t care about parking. It’s an Airbnb building for tourists, who generally Uber.

Interested to see what retail / dining options will be at the base. This street, between OKAN, Melo, Crosby, and 600 will be very different 5 years from now!!!

Crosby was sold out in 4 months and construction starting ahead of schedule. I guess got financing much quicker with sold out deposits. Looking forward to seeing this area in 2025

Its not the tallest or fanciest condo for sure. It serves tourists that want to see the area and don’t need a car. Why does everyone care who will live here? This will be a mix of new people from outside of Florida and those who have as investment (airbnb). Its priced accordingly as can see by the size of each unit.
In 2-3 years when area is fully developed, the tourists need a place to stay. This will be perfect!
Anyone who wants to see a game/show at arena…3 minute walk! Who doesn’t want that.

Too many college dropouts who think they’re certified urban planners on this board.

This is a beautiful building. The glass and color seems unique for the area and it should stand out like a gem even thought it is not very tall. AvroKo does beautiful interiors, there are some very famous five star restaurants I have been to all over the world appointed by them. The hope is the developers make this shine for Miami as it is their reputation ultimately. As for parking podiums, not having one makes these buildings more accessible and attractive from a tourism standpoint. I am really looking forward to seeing this it is a diamond in the rough.

For everyone on here complaining about the development of the city try getting involved. I went to a town hall the other night for the county commissioner of district 5 and there were only a few dozen people there. We’ve got an election coming up for city commissioner of district 2. Go out and vote.

No one with any influence is going to take feedback from this site. Reach out to our county commissioner and soon to be elected city commissioner and let them know your concerns and what ideas you have for our community.

If you really want to make a difference you have to get involved and not simply throw out ideas on this site.

I have a question. Where do the construction workers for all these projects live? I read how high rents have gotten in Miami. How can Miami support such a large construction work force?

City of Miami really needs to put some limits on Airbnb rentals. All this does is being a bunch of undesirables to the area and drive locals out. There’s plenty of market for residential towers.
