Demolition Begins At Target South Beach Property

A former South Beach nightclub is now being demolished to make way for a shopping center that will include a Target.

Mac 1045 5th St LLC applied for a permit that will allow for total demolition of a building on the site. The permit was being worked on yesterday (12/19), and nearing approval.

A backhoe was moved onto the site yesterday, and demolition work appeared to be underway.

Comras Company is planning a three-story, 66,389-square-foot project called BLVD at Lenox, which will include a Target.

Groundbreaking is scheduled for early 2018, with completion in spring 2019.

Great for South Beach.. we needed a long time ago.

honestly the more “big box” type stores in the urban core, the better, as long as they are responsive to the location. I think an good strategy to reduce traffic is to try and introduce more retail into more residential areas. This is great because I don’t think anyone from Miami proper will drive to shop here, this will only be for south beach and the tourists which I think it’s better for everyone to not have to take the causeway to shop. You would think more big box stores would create a more urban prototypes to deploy, but by the same token they are more expensive to build than the typical multi-acre suburban lot, so i get it.

I live in Brickell and drive to Best Buy and Total Wine in South Beach all the time. Having a Target there will be great, can’t wait.

You could also drive or take the metrorail to the target/best buy next to south miami metrorail station.

i drive to the whole foods in the gables from south beach because they have more products and a fresh squeezed OJ machine. can’t wait till the larger format grocery opens on the beach so won’t have to drive. target is great too. its funny how people drive all over the place to shop outside their neighborhoods. used to drive to total wine in aventura until the one opened here!

You should take the metro to total wine at university and Best Buy at dadeland for $4.50 round trip no traffic…just sayin. Can’t complain about mass transit if we don’t use what we have.

Anyone else noticed that in the render there’s a Chipotle look a like that says paprika? lol

Love me some paprika.

Somehow, the render looks better than I recall. It used to be cheap and nasty with cluttered windows, but now it seems more open and glassy.

It’s “render-ing” not “render”. “Render” is a verb as in “to render”, but you are referring to the product of said verb which is a noun and it is called a “rendering”.

For example it’s like saying: “My favorite paint is ‘Sunflowers’ by Van Gogh.”

Real estate buzzwords make no sense.

You sound exactly like my design professor. He is always correcting those terms.

Next to the $1,000 psf condos?

That area isn’t all condos. Lots of working class and middle class apartments all around the building…

And Target is what is going to gentrify the area?

You have to excuse him/her due to their inability to distinguish between Shopping and housing.
