At Overtown’s Massive Block 55, First Elevated Deck Concrete Pour Completed

The first elevated floor at Overtown’s giant Block 55 has been poured, according to contractor Coastal Construction.

The pour required 400 cubic yards of concrete and was completed last week, Coastal said.

Block 55 will include:

  • 578 affordable apartments for seniors
  • 250,000 square feet of retail space
  • 1,050 parking spaces
  • 1,400 square foot police substation

Tenants will include Target (with a Starbucks and CVS inside), an Aldi grocery, Burlington department store, and Ross Dress for Less.

We don’t have anything like that in Miami so it would be a hit for sure.

jazz/blues fare ? I agree , I hope it does n’t have a bachata or reggaeton flare because ir would ruin the neighborhood.

Miami can’t just be all about Latino culture, it should celebrate all cultures so this would be great as a change.

Same with food. There needs to be more variety. It can’t all be fusion of Japanese and a Latin country of your choice. We need more authentic restaurants that celebrate food from other countries without making this fusion thing.

Yep! Let’s hope the great migration from the Northeast continues. A lot of us locals have been waiting for this moment for the inevitable variety of food/culture that will come with the new residents.

well, most people here are from Latin America, so it’s hard for, say, authentic Iraqi food here because there aren’t people who know how to cook it and less demand.

Miami is (finally) becoming more than just Latino culture. If you can’t see that, then sorry, this place isn’t right for you.

Latino culture is more than bachata or reggaeton, yet it’s the “naturalized” foreigners who called American culture boring while creating the most cookie cutter music.

Great development for the area. Fills a great need for senior housing. On site retail choices are a great match for that housing.

I don’t think he’s trolling and legitimately believes somewhere with a monolithic minority as a majority is “diversity,” so long as the native majority of the country does not move back (a.k.a. gentrification).

Are there only “578 affordable apartments for seniors?” Any unaffordable apartments in the building?

I hope you’re being sarcastic given that downtown’s newest Publix is literally within spitting distance from this new building.
