Developer Files Plat For 3M Square Foot Commercial & Office Development In Downtown Miami

A key Downtown Miami property could soon be getting a massive new project, according to documents filed last month.

The property is best known for the former Lynx project that was once proposed there, designed by architect Pei Partnership. A For Sale sign was placed at the site in December, and it was listed on a broker’s website in January.

According to newly filed plat documents, a project with 3,159,936 square feet of office and commercial space is proposed to be built on the site.

The plat is known as Wharton Burdines and has already been reviewed by a City of Miami Plat committee . It is scheduled to be reviewed by Miami-Dade County’s Plat committee at a meeting next week.

The property has intense zoning and a developer can potentially build Miami’s tallest building on it.

3.1 million square feet of office space. That’s what I’m talking about. About damn time we get an actual skyscraper built DOWNTOWN that compliments the other office towers. Long overdue. Hopefully it’s a tall office building.

This is great news! The Lynx proposal though was spectacular. If anything, we should build this baby past 600 feet and maybe a lot more. you know, the Miami Tower should be replicated on the other side of the actual Miami Tower. This proposal could make that happen. What do you guys think?

Anything is better than that Trammel Crow Residential proposal, yuck! It makes Downtown 5th even look like Aston Martin.

Such large scale projects like this and the proposed 2nd & 2nd and One Brickell are really going to get people out of their cars and force them to find other modes of transportation which is great so long as the county builds a viable mass transportation system

But wasn’t this plat reviewed back in the day already for the former Lynx project that was once proposed there? I mean, don’t they already have a good idea of what it can hold?

Lynx was a Ricardo Nino “project”. There was no doubt about that failing.

There’s no residential planned? Housing in Miami is among the most expensive in the country. More is needed to bring those prices down.

Miami housing IS a relative bargain compared to major cities in the US and especially the world. I’d agree though, more housing downtown would be great.

Not really when you look at job wages in comparison to those markets.
