Miami’s UDRB deferred a decision on the District 36 project last month due to concerns that the plans didn’t include enough parking.
Developer Mack Real Estate Group submitted plans for the 19-story project that included 422 parking spaces – 10% fewer than required by code. Mack also asked for a waiver to allow for one industrial-size loading berth where two are required, and for parking to be permitted above the second level.
According to Miami Today, board members expressed concern over the reduction in parking from the 468 spaces that are required. Board members also weren’t thrilled about the design of the north elevation facing I-195.
Mack is hoping to build 197 rental apartments on the property, along with 66,741 square feet of retail space. ADD Inc is the architect.
