Construction Milestones Reached On Adjacent Midtown Miami Projects Totaling Over 1,100 Apartments

Two major apartment projects that are adjacent to each other in Midtown Miami recently reached significant construction milestones.

In total, the two will add 1,106 apartments to the neighborhood.

The first is a 28-story tower called Yard 8, which is now complete and open to residents. It includes 387 apartment units and 519 parking spaces, along with 29,549 of ground floor retail.

Stantec is the architect for Yard 8, and Wood Partners is the developer.

Adjacent to the Yard 8 tower is AMLI Residential’s 6.6-acre property that formerly housed the Chiquita Banana Headquarters.

A top off celebration was held late last month for two towers that are being developed there.

When complete, the 14-story north building will have 511 units, along with 834 parking spaces, with a total of 1,235,348 square feet.  The South building will have eight stories containing 208 units, 306 parking spaces, and a total of 474,684 square feet.

Zyscovich is the architect for the AMLI Chiquita project.

It needs a giant Metromover viaduct ruining any possibility for good streetscape, according to people on this site. Never mind the fact Midtown is already ripe for ROD whenever the Federal government gets it’s fist out its a** with signalization studies, and Coastal Link finally moves forward.

Great density, mediocre design, needs transit station, shade trees, a grocery store, and completely redone Ne 2nd which doesn’t even have a sidewalk south of 36th. And the city needs to fix the streetlights on Ne 36th from I 95 to Biscayne which have all been out since early May.

“Great density, mediocre design”

Dude, they’re just apartments so stop looking for some kind of “WOW” factor.. and complaining about transit, trees, grocery stores, sidewalks, and streetlights has nothing to do with the reporting of this project.

All those missing things are included in the completion of said project.

The grocery store will be part of the Crescent Heights project on 31st street and Biscayne.

This is the problem people like you, you build nothing to present a comparison with, so your baseless complaining is just useless whining.
