Dade Commissioners Vote In Favor Of Proposal For Block 45

Miami Dade commissioners have voted unanimously to award a bid to Atlantic Pacific Communities for Block 45.

The project is a short walk from Brightline’s MiamiCentral and from Miami Worldcenter.

In total, it would cost $172.8 million to build.

It will include twin 29-story towers, with 600 rental apartments, 23,000 square feet of ground floor retail and 645 parking spaces

The county will now finalize details of the agreement, which will then be brought back to the commission for final approval. The developer wants to begin construction as soon as the first quarter of 2019.

 

just one rendering in the proposal package (sections can be seen beginning on page 165):

Its funny because alot of the idiots on this site are crying racism because they didn’t put it in overtown. The non-black liberals are so ignorant of black Americans and think they have to speak up for us.

Absolutely correct. Tha stadium addition – its not a done deal for Melreese – to Overtown to complement these other improvements to the neighborhood are so appropriate.

Looks nice, maybe the county could get a developer to finish the Lynx site for affordable housing too.

Something similar, with 20 more stories per tower would be nice at the Lynx site…

Note to Melo – it doesn’t cost a lot to make a building look nice.

Something tells me when these 2 buildings are done there won’t be a crown. I don’t understand how you get approval as seen on the renders to the board with a crown. Then when the project is done you can leave off the crown with no permission from a board.

I often wonder the same thing. That’s because commissioners are paid off to turn a blind eye.

Solid-looking development! It looks a hell of a lot better than the Block 55 proposals.

Why is the government building more apartments ????
There are too many apartments already in the area.
The government should be helping bring jobs to the area with new office buildings !!!!!

Tell that to the people who are paying half their income or more on rent.

Uhh, What?! Yeah they do… that’s EXACTLY what they do in fact! Bring jobs to an area. They aren’t exactly built to sit there vacant and look pretty.
