Crescent Heights Signs Utilites Deal To Add Hundreds More Units To Nema Project In Edgewater

The Developer planning the Nema apartment complex in Edgewater has signed a new deal with Miami-Dade county to bring water and sewer utilities for hundreds more units than originally agreed.

According to the utilities deal completed on May 4, Nema will include:

  • 588 apartments
  • 42,030 square feet of retail

The newly signed deal significantly increases the number of apartments, but slightly reduces that amount of retail. A small amount of office will be eliminated.

Developer Crescent heights had previously signed a deal with Miami-Dade in July 2020 to supply utilities for 428 apartments, 48,590 square feet of retail, and 1,915 square feet of office.

A nationally known organic supermarket chain has signed a lease for the ground floor retail space at the tower.

As of now though, only the first Nema tower has been submitted to Miami’s Planning Department for review.

The developer is also planning a second tower at Nema however, according to plat documents filed with Miami-Dade. The second tower will have 400 residential units, 71,540 square feet of office, 11,100 square feet of retail and a 32,450 square foot fitness club.

On May 3, the developer voluntarily dismissed an eviction lawsuit against the Aids Healthcare Foundation currently occupying the site. That lawsuit was filed in July 2020.

A demolition permit for the property was approved in March 2021.

A boring box made ugly with lipstick-on-a-pig murals what looks like stich marks. It makes even Melo’s projects palatable.

How many parking spots? 500-1000? Exhibit A for induced demand. As more parking is built, more cars will come. There are better methods to move people around than cars. Wish the City was more proactive given this area has been booming for 5, nearly 10 years.
