Construction Underway At Block 55: Overtown’s Biggest Project Ever, With Vertical Retail & Residential

Construction is now underway on Block 55, a vertical retail and residential project.

Its is the biggest development ever built in the Overtown neighborhood. The neighborhood, which borders downtown Miami, is being revitalized with a slew of new projects.

Contractors began foundation work yesterday, after the city issued a foundation permit.

Target is among the tenants who have signed leases to open a store in the new complex.

Block 55 will include:

  • 578 affordable apartments for seniors
  • 250,000 square feet of retail space
  • 1,050 parking spaces
  • A 1,400 square foot police substation

In addition to Target, retail tenants will include Aldi, Ross, Ulta, Burlington, Five Below, and Youfit.

Arquitectonica is the architect. Coastal Construction is the contractor.

I don’t know about the hottest neighborhood. You must own something and want to promote the area to increase value.

An apartment building without balconies looks quite cold. Almost like a hospital. Hope they can warm it up a bit with textures and colors.

Affordable senior housing and Target don’t fit the usual definition of gentrification.

There’s been a lot less bitching about gentrification in NYC over the past few years. Blight, violence, and squalor may seem romantic when you’re not living in it. Once you are…not so much.

I am from NYC, Harlem to be exact and I love gentrification! Harlem became the hottest neighborhood now and my property doubled up in price. I also have a business there that is blooming! Gentrification is a blessing and I am black btw.
