At A Single Biscayne Boulevard Intersection, Over 3,000 Planned Apartments

Over 3,000 apartment units are now in planning at a single Biscayne Boulevard intersection in Edgewater.

The large number of units planned at the 18th Street and Biscayne Boulevard intersection was pointed out by Ryan RC Rea in a Twitter video this weekend.

It doesn’t end there. There are additionally thousands more units being planned going one more block from the intersection – with projects in every direction, whether its north, south, east or west.

Here are the developments planned around the 18th Street and Biscayne Boulevard intersection:

The total unit count for the above: 3,385 apartments.

Also visible from the intersection: the Grupo T&C site at 1837 N.E. Fourth Ave, where another 322 residential units are planned.

Miami is growing at 1,000 MPH, while our public transit stands still.

While that’s great it doesn’t solve anything. Metrorail needs to be expanded above the existing rail line running parallel with US1 with stops every mile or so that run at a higher frequency than once an hour and also doesn’t have to compete with freight travel

Pols will typically respond after the apartments are filled and commuters start screaming. Has it ever been any other way? After all, per some poster below we may have the miracle cure of automated vehicles! Or all wfh.

Only thing that has to be certain at plan approval is sewer and water capacity.

Just because there is a metromover station 3 blocks to the south doesn’t mean there is peak capacity in those one-car trains that run every 15 minutes.

They should extend metromover up us1 through Edgewater. There’s more than enough density.

I thought that’s what the contemplated Miami Avenue extension was people on here coom over. Biscayne Boulevard should have a streetcar, with the first phase up to Little River, and second down to Brickell and along Coral Way.

MDC can do a much better job of expanding the Metrorail along parallel to Biscayne Blvd as well as another line headed to Hard Rock Stadium. A shame the county hasn’t even talked about it yet.

Metrorail runs along US1 all the way to Dadeland. In Brickell and Downtown are transfer stations to the metromover.

A massive increase to supply should help keep rent growth in check but too bad all of these developments are likely underwritten at top of market rents

We need all levels of units. High-end units also provide housing for people who can afford and want that, raising them out of a mid-tier unit, freeing that up, etc. etc. etc.

Very true, especially with high prevailing construction cost. Will need a good recession to see a rental reset.

So glad to see all these developments in Edgewater. This particular area has way too many empty lots and some of the ones that have some stuff desperately need revamping.

It’s true. Miami is being destroyed with so much over building. Would be way better with less sky scrapers and more green parks. Go to NYC or Chicago if you want to live in a tall building. Leave Florida natural.

A lot of people in Miami are still stuck on a magazine article that said the population of Miami is under served by the amount parks it has and needs more. They don’t take time to realize that they read that BS in a “MAGAZINE!” And publishers are in the business to sell “MAGAZINES!” They are not concerned about whats really going on in Miami.

when all the parking lots get developed the question is whether there is sufficient infrastructure, primarily transportation, to handle the demand for services.

By the way, sewer capacity is not the greatest in this part of the city.

There should be a tally of the amount being built or somewhere in the development process I feel like it must be above 20,000 units in the Downtown area between World Center, the Brightline supertowers, baccarat… etc.

Quite so. I’ve lived in a West Coast high rise, taller than most in the area, and experienced an earthquake. Building was fairly new and held up exceptionally well thanks to good engineering. Only a couple of coffee cups suffered in my unit. Learned to respect the cat regarding aftershocks.

That is not true, the Salesforce Tower is taller than any tower in Miami. the real reason there is so little towers is that the NIMBYs don’t want their street have a building that isn’t a single family home.

Basically San Francisco has all but made construction illegal. Despite a decade of record housing costs SF hasn’t built anything.

And if each one has parking for two cars/unit and each owner has two cars that means around 7,000 cars will be on the road thereby dethroning 36th St as the most congested street in the county.

Not all residents will be driving at the same time nor will there be two cars per unit. Many will just walk to publix, walk to the park and taken the metromover at omni station. Oh and take ubers.

Yes….this is the way it works in the minds of the Utopianists.

Fast, clean, amazing trains come to your living room (right up to the XBox) and carry you exactly where you want to go. AND the people who previously owned cars will pay for it all!

Oh….and all housing will be for sale for less than it costs to build it, and EVERYTHING is “affordable”.

I just say build ins taste and balance. Over building in miam is stupid crazy right now
These developers know what they are doing as it’s just a cash cow of bullshit. Meaning soon where these ppl live will turn into downtown luxury apartments and condo that sits in water. No big lost to them as everyone wants is in factor. I just feel sorry for the true resistance of the south florida ppl verses the transplants of high end and mid income snobs with the addition Karen. Damn those Karen’s you move to a big city just to be annoyed how crazy are you really in the head.

For those looking for transportation in this city that is south Florida to change. Dont worry it will all come with a huge change. In the future for every metropolitan you will not be driving a your vehicle unless its self driving or you are using the city to state transit system. Traffic will be a different breed that will change our lives forever. Like the dummies we are we will vote on this giving up another control factor to our government and the huge business that pays them to influence our change.

Socretes

Adding 3,000 units of housing supply will definitely help some.

Because all these units will be NEW housing and will have new everything, it is logical that the rents in the area will increase statistically. But because there are 3,000 NEW units does not mean that the old units will necessarily increase their rents. They might…if the market wants to pay high prices for old housing stock…but it won’t be a drastic increase in the old.

Obviously you don’t live down here. Homes in the ghetto are overpriced to what they were 2 years ago. Luxury buildings here are destroying our way of life. It was great before all this un needed development. Even the waters off biscayne bay won’t be as clear as it is now. Over development will kill our ecosystem.
