At 400 Biscayne, Plans For A 704-Unit Tower Advance

Property Markets Group and Greybrook Realty Partners are moving forward with plans to build a massive apartment tower at 400 Biscayne.

The new tower will be part of PMG’s X Social Communities division, which offers high-tech and highly amenitized buildings, with larger common areas and smaller units.

The developers completed a deal with Miami-Dade County this week to bring water and sewer utilities to the site. According to the agreement, the project will include:

  • 704 apartment units
  • 20,508 house of worship
  • 2,531 square feet of retail
  • 1,091 square feet of fast food

A 27,984-square-foot house of worship currently on the site is being demolished, the agreement states. The developers have previously said that they will rebuild the First United Methodist Church, as part of their $55m purchase of the property.

Just one block away at 300 Biscayne, the developers are about to open the 464-unit X Miami, also a part of the PMGx portfolio. Miami New Times held their Best of Miami 2018 Party there last week.

I would like to see a House of Blues next to the House of Worship. Both would feed the soul.

By the time all of these new towers are done Downtown Miami and Brickell will have the most parking per square mile of any city in the world when all these garages are built, a sea of massive parking garages doesn’t make sense at all but you gotta admit it is impressive how many will eventually exist in such a small area.

Man, you people need to get off this “parking bashing” babble because it’s getting really old and stale.

It wasn’t my intention to bash the parking garages, just acknowledging how many are being built so close together and it’s impressive whether your for or against it, a shitload o parking

Driverless cars are going to put even more cars on the roads. And I don’t think ridesharing will replace car ownership since no one wants to wait five minutes for a new ride every time they need to pop in to a CVS or Publix. The ability to sleep and use your phone while driving is going to push people to commute farther and farther. Some people might choose to live in downtown Miami and work in West Palm Beach. It’s sounds absurd to South Floridians to reverse commute from the city to the suburbs but that’s already the case in San Francisco and a lot of large cities in Europe and Asia.

It probably already has that title. Keep them building.
Unfortunately, this is the way the city grew and is still growing. Now, they are talking about expanding 836 and develop all that land west of the Turnpike. When will our city limits end?????
It’s already the size of a country, not a city.

eventually all these parking garages will be converted into retail when sea levels rise, and the towers will all be connected by sky bridges. like a modern day venice.

Of course! If they’re going to get rid of the parking on Biscayne they need parking to compensate. It’s obvious.

When a building proposal is announced, it’s reviewed by city officials because it must meet city building regulations and codes for parking.

“Subject to change” indeed. The patchy balconies on the side make it look cheap.

It just cements deeper my thoughts about moving somewhere where a car is not needed. All parking does is make everything more expensive.
