County Agrees To Supply Utilities For 298 Unit Modera Edgewater

Miami-Dade county’s Water and Sewer Department inked a deal this week to supply utilities for a rental project called Modera Edgewater.

The project will be built on 14 lots assembled around 411 NE 24 Street. Multiple property owners signed the deal, including the principal of Prive Land Banking (they are likely flipping the land to Mill Creek Residential for development.)

Documents state that the project will include 298 apartments. The plans, designed by Corwill Architects of Coral Gables, were reviewed by Miami’s UDRB in November.

 

up to 55 stories could have been built, according to the prive website. mill creek is opting to build eight stories:

(Waits for comments wanting building to be 1,000+ feet tall)

Glad to see a pedestrian scaled building with affordable units. Finally, a developer who does not feel the need to build yet another luxury tower!

Beautiful project.. perfectly scaled and near Biscayne.. Edgewater is becoming a walkers paradise..

More retail on Biscayne Blvd. will be needed.

Biscayne highway needs traffic calming and light rail.

Loving the Edgewater infill. Will help lead to a truly vibrant neighborhood, instead of empty luxury units. Now just need more retail, restaurants and (maybe) office.

This is such a nice scale for the neighborhood. I think its great that not every lot will be a super tall building. In Brickell is can be cavernous, at least this will keep the area more “open” with more breezes, sunlight, etc.

how does miami 21 not force these developments to have some sort of retail component at ground level…

Not every building needs to have retail. In New York and Chicago, there are countless streets lined with just residential buildings and walk ups. Some people enjoy being in “the city” but avoiding all of the noise some of the street cafes and bars can bring. Nothing wrong with a quiet residential street, especially in an area like Edgewater 🙂

Exactly. Now if this were on Biscayne, on the other hand, that would be a bit ridiculous. But the Edgewater cul-de-sacs invite this kind of development and neighborhood.

Great frontage IMO. Retail wouldn’t do well here. Looks like they’ve lifted the first floor off the ground considerably (great for “security” as windows are higher) and the units have porches and steps down to the sidewalk. 110% acceptable under Miami21.

Because it’s not a code or statute.

Very nice looking. Hopefully it is some affordable renting units as well.

Where is the tribute to MiMo? Mid Century Modern? Art Deco?
Art Nouveau?
Post Industrial?
We’re never going to be a design avant garde city copying the pseudo Mediterranean look infiltrated in every corner of Dade Co.

What’s there to be an expert of? I could walk on the street, puke and do a puke angel. That’s avant-garde. So that’s what you want for development?
