Demolition Permit Applied For At Kushner’s Edgewater Collective Site Where Three Towers Planned

Demolition permits have just been applied for at 1900 Biscayne Boulevard, where developer Kushner plans to build the Edgewater Collective.

Kushner completed the purchase of 1900 Biscayne on January 18, for a total of $37.64 million, county records show.

MSD Partners provided financing for the acquisition.

On February 23, multiple demolition permit applications were filed with Miami’s building Department for total demolition of various structures throughout the assembled site.

A home that is over 100 years old is among the buildings slated for demolition. The demolition permits are for:

  • A single family home built in 1917
  • A multifamily building built in 1924
  • A multifamily building built in 1928
  • A multifamily building built in 1950
  • 2 and 3-story office buildings, and a surface parking lot

Berg Demolition is listed as the contractor.

The developer now controls the entire block, except for an Advance Auto Parts store at the western end.

Edgewater Collective will include two towers at 1900 Biscayne, and one tower at 2000 Biscayne. The first tower is under construction at 2000 Biscayne.

In total, Edgewater Collective will have 1,299 apartments.

Yes exactly. There’s no need for arbitrary design elements. They’re not attractive. Just keep the building simple and it’s fine infill.

Agree. this is a perfect case of “Less is more”..

& Infills should not equal ugly tasteless buildings but I see Melo is on your name you probably love bright Green Glass Buildings.

And you love empty lots with nothing on them but broken glass, crumpled up soda and beer cans, tattered clothes, pieces of torn up paper, and overgrown weeds strewn all over the place.

At least the Melo Group does build something better to look at with them.

If it was Melo, you would be speaking favorably about it.

They don’t have a water view and therefore can’t command the same price. This in turn means the buildings are going to be a nothing special in terms of design. Otherwise everyone would complain about paying 1mil for condos in the middle of Edgewater with no view.

Enterprise Zones were never federal, they were state only and Florida sunset them in 2015. Perhaps you’re thinking of Opportunity Zones, as this location is in one.

Opportunity Zones mean there is “opportunity,” obviously by its location. There’s a reason Miami Gardens and Homestead aren’t.

I would call this a downgrade for the area if you are replacing those beautiful old homes with bogus quality buildings like this. This is too hard on the eyes.

this area is growing much faster and is
much more lively with the ” cereal boxes ” than with the old beautiful homes.developing projects that create dense and lively neighborhoods is much better than maintaining an old boring suburb that only benefits a few people

Plenty of people don’t want to live in dense neighborhoods where you live on top of others, and there’s nothing wrong with that at all.

Meanwhile, Related destroyed countless old prewar homes on the other side of Biscayne Boulevard for their cereal box monstrosities, and Millcreek destroyed one of the most beautiful last vestiges where Unity on the Bay stood… Crickets.
