Developer Buys Edgewater Denny’s, Up To 500 Units Per Acre Permitted

A developer has just closed on the purchase of the Denny’s restaurant in the Midtown Miami and Edgewater area, with plans for redevelopment, according to the SFBJ.

3600 Biscayne JV OZNF LLC paid $24 million for the property. The company is managed by Pacific Star Capital founder Aria Mehrabi.

Mehrabi told the website that he is working on a development that will be built on the property, with plans to be released soon.

The Denny’s was built in 1968, and has never been sold since then. The restaurant chain was the seller.

It sits on 1.18 acres of land, where 500 units per acre are allowed.

Sooner or later they will have to improve Miami’s mass transit system.

While I hope they do. The politicians in this area will face no repercussions if they don’t fix. In other words, there’s no real incentive to fix the mass transit system unless a private company finds a good way to rip off the local gov and over charge riders.

Spot on except you left out the part about graft. The politicians get paid for letting the taxpayers be fleeced. This quid pro quo explains most public policy at all levels. Opportunity for graft is the key explanatory factor.

Yeah! Let’s expand a system that take a handful of cars off the road and make absolutely no difference, while it’s in proximity to the FEC tracks for a proper train service…

That means we have two rail systems that need something to be done. I think doing something further with the Metromover system first makes more sense.

I don’t think he was referring specifically to this intersection, rather infill on lots where there isn’t the space to built a tower and you know, in the classical styles which used to be all around here. A diverse housing stock helps make neighborhoods great.

Miami has its own architecture character which representative with art deco buildings in miami beach, mimo design in biscayne boulevard and design district , curving design buildings all over the town , Mediterranean revival in coral gables. Row houses i think don’t fit in the city.

This is kinda true, but its at the northern part, but I think Edgewater will get an entertainment hub soon, there are so many high rises in the area it’d be for a developer not to.

When I was a youngster at DASH , that Dennys and the Taco Hell (back when Tacos were 29 cents) were considered haute cuisine..not to mention after a few hazier nights coming back from Space, after some Basel events etc #memories Still and all, looking forward to some improvement – including nicer restaurants! I’ll be sure to stop by again for the memories haha

Some of my earliest memories at a restaurant are at this Denny’s. Hopefully it has its parking entrance and exit in the rear to not cause more traffic to this intersection.
