Biggest Supermarket In Miami’s Urban Core Planned By Crescent Heights Near Midtown, Along With Hundreds Of Residential Units

Miami’s urban core could be getting its biggest supermarket, along with multiple towers that have hundreds of residential units, according to newly filed documents.

Crescent Heights has submitted plat documents to Miami-Dade County to allow for the redevelopment of the 2900 and 3000 block of Biscayne Boulevard.

The development would be split into two tracts.

Tract A will be closer to Midtown Miami, along NE 2nd Avenue. It will be developed with 400 residential units, 71,540 square feet of office, 32,450 square feet of commercial space used for a fitness club, and 11,100 square feet of retail.

The large supermarket will be part of Tract B, with Biscayne Boulevard frontage. There will be 58,826 square feet of grocery, along with 443 residential units.

By comparison, the nearby Publix at 18th and Biscayne is 49,000 square feet.

A new supermarket is likely to do well in the area, which has thousands of new residential units either under construction or newly completed. Nearby Publix, Whole Foods and Target stores are normally crowded with shoppers.

Crescent Heights recently filed with the FAA to build a 428-foot tower on the property called Nema.

Arquitectonica is the architect.

Only Publix or Whole Foods would take down that much space. Publix makes 1.1 million a week on 18th street so I’m inclined to say it’s them.

Yes, totally. I”m so over the Publix domain. I mean, we have no variety. In my opinion, they are over-rated and over priced. Their deli is mediocre. Why would you only have Latin food? I mean, nothing wrong with congri and picadillo but I can get that anywhere else.

Because it’s a nice and it’s a definitely step up from mediocre Publix. I for one do NOT support Publix. Their baked goods are mediocre and little variety. The last time I was there I asked where were the sourdough breads. Their answer was, we don’t bake them till late afternoon… I was perplexed. It was 10:30AM. Why only do Cuban bread early in the morning? Is that the only bread in the world????

It’s not that we don’t like Publix but variety is the spice of life my friend. I mean, on another note, Publix is over-priced and they have really cut back on their products in the last decade.

The owners support Chump for starters. They are overpriced and pay bribes in Tallahassee to try to keep Trader Joe’s out. Is that enough or should I continue?

Don’t forget this is an “opportunity zone” even though it probably shouldn’t be. Developers will get lots of perks courtesy of other tax payers.

Anyone else concerned about the overdevelopment of this city? Every residential condo means two more cars on the road, per unit. What about the impact on traffic? Shouldn’t the city invest in their infrastructure instead of catering to developers?

“Anyone else concerned about the overdevelopment of this city? Every residential condo means two more cars on the road, per unit. What about the impact on traffic? Shouldn’t the city invest in their infrastructure instead of catering to developers?”

After saying that, he jumps in his vehicle and again, add to the scarce CARS on the uncrowded ROAD because he wants to go to a his favorite uncrowded theater that some DEVELOPER built to see a movie and after, get in his vehicle to travel back to his lone house where there are no neighbors in ten a mile radius.

Excuse the sarcasm but, all that can be yours when you move to a small farming village where no one there is “concerned about the overdevelopment” of their tiny town.

Living in the big city is a “bitch” huh?

Absolutely not.
Cars are part of life, and life is beautiful with cars. If it was as bad as you make it sound, people would not be buying these condos. The developers are paying construction costs and space in offering these parking spots because residents want parking and cars.

600,000 + Square feet of parking too. Further cementing our urban cores dependency on the car and forcing planners to build streets only for cars and not for bikes, scooters and walking.

Good luck getting a weeks worth of groceries on a bike, scooter, or holding it in your hands walking.

Earn some money, buy a car, park in a parking spot, tell your hipster buddies you’re “Adulting”.

OR, if you live in the urban core, you could shop for groceries more than once a week and only buy what you need for the next couple days, which usually fits easily into a CitiBike basket.
Then, with all the money you save because you’re not pouring it directly down the drain through car ownership, go on a nice trip somewhere. That’s what I do.

If you work the normal 40-50+ hrs per week, how many trips per week you want to go to the grocery store? That’s for retirees with lots of time on their hands.

I’d rather own a nice car that improves my daily life than blow money on some vacation trip. I already live in vacationland anyhow.

I have three grocery stores within a 3-5 minute bike ride, with a CitiBike station at my house, and one at each of the stores. When you account for getting a car out of a garage and finding parking in a lot, I find it’s much more reasonable.

For me, vacation doesn’t include endless hours lounging on the beach or by the pool, precisely because that’s what I do here, lol

Yeah, and spend half your salary on insurance, gas, car payments, tolls, tires, oil changes, car washes, parking and maintenance. Thanks but no thanks,

I used to do that. Standing in line at Publix 3-4 times a week got old pretty quick.

….. and you are not paying anything to maintain the bike lane from no gas taxes. The cars are paying for your bike lane, and according to you, saving a lot of money to blow it on vacations. As bike lanes reduce car lanes they need to be charged in some manner for their share of the road maintenance. Very high registration fees, or a special “bicycle tax”, higher sales taxes on bicycles etc. I am sure that you have no issues in paying higher taxes incurred by your use and to help promote further bicycle lanes.

Actually no. In fact, taxes on the general obligation bond are paying for lots of bike lanes in Miami Beach. As well as repaving *your* roads.

..and the gas tax, sales tax on cars/repairs, and all the car registration fees is going where? Who do you think pays a general obligation bond? Santa Claus?

The amount of money I pay in taxes that goes towards expanded and maintained car facilities far outweighs the amount of money you pay in taxes for bike facilities. Don’t even try with that one.

Why cram a weeks worth of groceries? You obviously have never lived outside the U.S. The norm in most of the world is you go shopping on your way home and buy fresh needs, no need for a SUV or a pickup truck to go grocery shopping.

Perhaps because the rest of the world can’t afford the utility cost of a big fridge.
I have lived in many countries. America is the best place to live – big roads, big cars, cheap gasoline, low sales taxes and prices, and low energy prices. If you enjoy riding your bike in the rain multiple times a week to pick up your groceries, than good for you. But don’t force others to do the same. Let’s keep America living in America beautiful. You can always move to Copenhagen if you want more bicycle lanes.
