Demolition Permit Pending At Edgewater Site Where 38-Story Tower Planned

Two New York developers have filed for a demolition permit on a site in Edgewater where they plan a condo tower rising up to 38 stories.

Renderings of the new tower have not yet been released.

However, the boutique condo building is being designed by Kobi Karp and Argentina’s Dieguez Fridman, the developers told The Real Deal in August. It will also include a ground floor restaurant.

On the same block, a 55-story tower called 710 Edge received UDRB approval last week. Both new projects will help contribute to a public baywalk, which is required in any new waterfront development.

Edgewater Owner LLC, which is a partnership between SB Development Group and Hazelton Capital Group, purchased the property at 456, 480 and 496 NE 29 Street in July 2021.

In September, a demolition permit was applied for to clear the site of a home that dates back to 1940.

Miami’s Historic and Environmental Preservation reviewer granted approval for the demolition yesterday.

Chin Diesel is listed as the demolition contractor.

Which N/S path would you choose for the Edgewater path? I’ve thought that the Metromover extension should be a loop, but was thinking up Miami and then back down NW5th or 6th near the highway.

If it’s not a 2 way loop it is ineffective. how about up Miami Ave and down Biscayne Blvd

We need office space downtown first, and a Coastal Link station at Midtown and walking will do fine. We certainly don’t need an extension of Metromover flyovers beyond and unused section at School Board, destroying streetscapes and encouraging more crappy box towers with parking garages at street level.

No one downtown is going to wait to take a train to midtown or vice versa. You need a mover line that’s running on a faster constant schedule

Just because the house is from 1940 doesn’t mean it’s an “eye sore”.

So I suppose most of Boston, NYC, Philly, DC, etc. are giant “eye sores” to you because they have old buildings/homes?

This one is. Howver, many other prewar houses destroyed in the past ten years for Related’s parking garages for their crummy cigarette box towers could have been preserved and adaptively reused for upscale restaurants. The demolition of the Eastwood/Ursine Mansion at Unity on the Bay was especially an atrocity.

1940’s doesn’t equal eyesore.
Eyesore doesn’t equal 1940’s either.
However the two can overlap and have an eyesore from 1940’s.
Which is the case here.

Most of the older homes on 29th and 28th (actually probably 25th thru 29th) streets are not well maintained. If they were, they wouldn’t be eyesores.

With so many new residential buildings in Edgewater, new quality restaurants, services and commerce should be attracted to Biscayne Ave, which is great for getting around the region on foot.

The road isn’t disappearing, it is the area, which is being upgraded.

What ever happened to the local commuter train with a stop in Edgewater at 27 street? Did this die on the vine?
