It is the largest project under construction in Midtown by unit count, with approval for up to 712 residential apartment units granted.

The property is separated from Midtown by the Brightline rail track.

Midtown neighborhood/Wynwood will be nice.. very urban. Good for the city of Miami.

Agreed but the city should be using impact fees to build out transit. The extension of the people mover is slowly becoming essential and not just cool to have.

Yes… and regardless of how some people demean the Metromover, it’s a cheaper, reliable, and faster to build than all the other forms of transit.

Here are the alternatives proposed by our local government:
1-Give Braman a tax credit so he can expand his BMW dealership.
2-Wait until Google comes out with their driverless car version 3.0
4-Eliminate the Sidewalks to Widen NE 2nd Ave.
5-Travel (with their families) to Paris, London, Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires to study how those cities solved their public transportation problems at the beginning of the XIX century.

^^^ THIS.

“We just came back from a fabulous vacation looking at transportation options in other places. Rather than paying any attention we decided we’d follow the suggestion of our 60-year old friend who is entirely unqualified for the position, but whom we got hired. He suggested we just build new roads. If there’s no room for new roads we’ll just endlessly study what needs to be done.

Did we mention that the studies are all done by our friends? We didn’t? Ooops. Well, you can find us on the yacht that this transportation study paid for.”

People in Miami are getting kicked out of their apartments because they can’t pay the rent and this person is complaining about “bike lanes.”

Unlike scuffling people trying to make it, I’m glad life is so good for you.

People in Flint don’t even have potable water, and this person is complaining about people overextending to live in places they can’t afford. I’m glad life is so good for you.

Hey dumbass, I’m talking about a place in the state of Florida. The entire population of the county that Flint sits is only about 430,000 people. MiamiDade’s population is over 2.7 million, and growing every day. If you’re so concerned about whats happening in the state of Michigan, I suggest you get off the TNM web site and get on one that’s addressing the water crisis in Flint Michigan.

Hey smart guy, that turn was similar to the leap you took from talking about bike lanes to forcing the issue of affordable housing.

Hey stupid guy, again, the subject is addressing something happening in the city of Miami Florida. Bringing up something that’s happening in a city that’s over a thousand miles away, where people have a place to live in, but their government F-ed up their water supply is irrelevant to this conversation about Miami. Get it? Got it? Good!!!
