Construction Gets Underway On Residential Tower In North Bay Village

7918, a 21-story waterfront condo tower in North Bay Village with unique architecture has just broken ground.

Architect MTTR Mgmt, which is designing the 7918 tower, wrote that the project is now officially under construction.

Records show that a Notice of Commencement was recorded with Miami-Dade on July 28 stating that work on the project was beginning.

According to the Notice of Commencement, a 54-unit condo building is being built. Thornton Residential is listed as the contractor.

Each of the 54 units in the building will be different, with unique floor plate outlines and glass-lines customized for every condo, according to the project website.

The project will have 250,000 square feet and is six years in the making, MTTR said.

Pacific Orient Development LLC, a subsidiary of a Malaysian company, is the developer. The SFBJ reported in 2017 that they planned to self-fund construction rather than rely on pre-sales.

There is a 30 story tower and a 21 story tower also in the making. Both are pretty nice. Also another 30 story tower in the planning, Isle of Dreams North Bay Village, but that’s gone under the radar.

Much needed. This is prime location, yet the area looks rather depressing.

Wasn’t this the municipality that tried to designate some crappy 1960s apartment buildings as historic to stop redevelopment? Meanwhile, on the mainland and even the beach, genuine prewar historic buildings are being destroyed left and right.

Will you please stop being the only person in Miami to use the term “Pre-War”.
Keep that in the Big Apple.

What a complete toad this new tower is! It’s just a bunch of glass doors and no alignments between stories. The little stepped grey parapets are totally Hialeah 1970 in style. This architect must be legally blind, because the results are hideous!

put the drinks down. “the little stepped grey parapets are totally Hialeah 1970 style”… what does that even mean other than you have never been to any other city in the world? “No alignment between stories”? you would have been better off using a lot less words to say you thought it was ugly instead of owning yourself like that 👆

It’s okay but hardly ‘signature architecture’.

I hope there is some solid retail at the base. Bay Village is horribly located if you are looking for walkability. I spent a few months there and it was horrible. You’re not in Miami, or Miami Beach. You can’t even walk to a convenience store; everything is 20+ minutes away by car.

Really crappy location. Would be more successful as a mixed-use community.

Good news for you, a publix or some type of grocery store is planned there.

i think precisely because its not congested miami beach or miami. amenities will come to this neighborhood. its in a unique pristine place. it happened in a few places that retained their identity while on the rise.

How can a place on an island in the middle of beautiful Biscayne Bay be a really crappy location? You can’t walk to a convenience store from Gables Estates either, think anyone there gives AF? Like being walking distance to a 7-11 is some sort of real estate Holy Grail.
