Crescent Heights Planning Hundreds Of Residential Units & Supermarket In Edgewater As Part Of New ‘Community’

Developer Crescent Heights has asked Miami to replat land on Biscayne Boulevard in order to make way for a new development.

According to the plat submittal, the new project will include:

  • 754 residential units (400 at Tract A, 354 at Tract B)
  • 268,654 square feet of office
  • 16,720 square feet of retail (split evenly between Tract A and Tract B)
  • 38,450 square-foot grocery store
  • 61,450 square feet fitness
  • 620,731 square feet of parking

A total of 5.266 acres of land is being replatted, including land at 3050 Biscayne Boulevard. That property has a 10-story, 90,480 square-foot office building which will remain.

The land being replatted runs from Biscayne Boulevard to NE 2nd Avenue, across the street from AMLI’s 720-unit Chiquita apartment project in Midtown Miami. Thousands of residential units are under construction or newly completed within a short distance of the land.

In 2016, Crescent Heights founder Russell Galbut told the Herald he was planning a “whole community” for the land that will include “a little bit of everything.”

Miami’s Plat & Street Committee reviewed the request at a meeting on January 9.

This area desperately needs a complete street along NE 2nd Ave.

Curb bulb outs, more crosswalks, bike lanes, narrower street, wider sidewalk with landscaped area/trees.

For sure, between 34th and 36th streets there is no sidewalk at all.

Only a brainlet would think a costly Metromover extension is feasible right near railroad tracks for Coastal Link.

There is a giant donut hole in the middle of Edgewater where Crescent Heights owns all this land, and then some. Looking forward to their community plan and construction.

Stunning rendering and really matches the area I think.

270k office is no joke either. It’s over half the size of 830 Brickell’s proposed 533k (and that’ll be Miami’s new tallest) and 754 apartments is just shy of Brightline’s ~800 units between it’s two apartment towers in Miami, so I wonder how tall this development will be?

That grocery store will also be great for the area. I initially thought Trader Joe’s but the avg TJ store is half the size of the 38k listed. Regardless, Trader Joe’s is beyond ripe for Edgewater so soon enough I’m sure.

PS: Some sort of crossing over the rail corridor will be needed once AMLI and this are built (along with the rest in this neighborhood).

Don’t shoot the messenger, but there’s a pedestrian connection from east of NE 2nd Ave into Midtown planned at the Coastal line stop.

Why is that bad??

It’s not bad, but anytime the Coastal link is mentioned people crush the commenter for being a naive idiot, that the coastal link won’t be built in any of our lifetimes. I know it’s not coming for a while, but the pedestrian crossing is planned, which is a great thing.

Um, above the rendering it states “older renderings for a development planned by crescent heights at 3000 biscayne.” So, if that’s the rendering you’re referring to, there is a big possibility that Crescent Heights is going with another design for this project.

We can’t have this runaway development without demanding infrastructure improvements …. biscayne and 36th intersection is the worst in the city…. all for new communities but no where else in America do huge projects go up with zero regard to how it affects residents….

Yes, in normal cities they would use at least some of the newly generated taxes from development to improve infrastructure, and often demand improved infrastructure before the development is even allowed. Who knows where all the windfall money pouring in from this current economic/real estate market is going. You’d think we’d have streets with gold plating by now.

Nice addition to the neighborhood. More office buildings in walking distance to (eventual) rail station will be great for the area.
