Construction Underway At 36-Story Overtown Residential Tower

Construction appears to be underway at the Block 45 apartment tower in Overtown, photos by Ryan RC Rea show.

The property had been used as a surface parking lot until construction began.

According to a July 11 water and sewer agreement, Block 45 will include:

  • 616 apartments
  • 5,013 square feet of retail
  • 15,093 square feet of full service restaurant
  • 5,013 square feet of fast food restaurant

The project is also planned to include an 8-story garage with 605 parking spaces.

Atlantic Pacific Communities, LLC is the developer of Block 45. Bermello Ajamil is the architect.

WOW one of the nicest projects. Hope the developers in the developing western segment of Brickell look at this. I know they had some basic designs rejected and could learn from this one. This is how we do it.

The Y shaped pillars remind me of a modern version of a classic train station. Never seen this unique design in Miami, and it’s refreshing and then BAM the other side is a collage of rectangular shapes emitting light – very chic. Bring this to Brickell too 🤞

I wonder what kind of neighborhood Overtown will become? Will it be a shopping, partying, or something else neighborhood?

Finally this starts and will add much needed density within blocks of publix, the aldi/target apartment building and the brightline stationn.

Should help to make the neighborhood safer especially if they do it right with their building security

A decent looking residential tower in a very important historical neighborhood. I actually like it. Will really help the western location of the skyline pop. Hope the residents don’t get priced out of this important neighborhood.

There isn’t such a thing of being priced out or priced in. We all pay the price we can afford and live where we can afford.

Please be quiet with this silly semantics game. If you lived there but can no longer afford it, you’re priced out.

If you are a renter who has rented for 30 years and can no longer afford it, you are priced out.
If you are property owner who has owned for 30 years and can no longer afford it, you sell, and you now have wealth for you and your family.

Great project, but could they of hidden the parking garage a bit better? It’s a bit absurd.

If we haven’t learned anything from Fort Myers we will never will I said it before and I will say it again we cannot put 50 state in to one and we can’t sell sunshine and we are not watching nature and I pray it won’t be too late for us and these greedy investors take advantage of the people who doesn’t do their homework in buying these places here in Florida God help us

Shut up – I lived here my entire life and lived through the eye of many storms. It’s devastating but each time we build strong and the impact is less and less felt. Don’t be afraid to build back better.

Fort Myers, meaning Fort Myers beach was mostly old 1950s construction and trailers. Apples to oranges.

Exactly. If a hurricane were to push right through Miami, highrises would be the safest place to be. Especially anything built in the 90s and newer

these will not be affordable for the housing crisis…

If they are not affordable, they will sit empty and prices will go down. However, nothing sits empty in Miami so this is fine.
