Developer Planning 4 Downtown Miami Residential Projects, Saying Brightline Is A ‘Game Changer’

Aria Development Group is now planning a total of four residential developments in downtown Miami – in part due to the Brightline rail service, according to its principal and co-founder.

Brightline is a “game changer” for the area, Aria’s David Arditi told the Herald.

The developer is now in planning on three additional projects for the area, after launching sales recently for a 40-story tower called 501 First Residences.

The developer also announced a groundbreaking date for 501 First.

Construction will start at 501 First in the first quarter of 2022, Arditi said. Completion is scheduled for late 2024.

501 First is being built without parking. It will be located about two blocks from Brightline’s station.

I notice everything being built in America is skewed towards the wealthy where as China is building for all its people

Not when it comes to high speed trains. What they did in last 20 years would take more then 100 in the US and would cost 100 times more

Politically, yes. But it outruns us in some other ways, partly because the government doesn’t care about much, other than pushing China economically past the US. We tend to “almost” always play by the rules (that benefit some at the expense of others), but they don’t, as long as the government’s goals are met. Bullet trains, floating airports, awesome new architecture (look at all the projects Hadid & Co. have done there), modern infrastructure, and developing alternative energy sources (while killing the population with fossil fuel emissions). Dissidents are executed or just disappear, while we put them in jail. America’s “justice” system holds almost 2.3 million people in 1,833 state prisons, 110 federal prisons, 1,772 juvenile correction facilities, local jails and immigration facilities.

What? I was in Shanghai, Ghenzhou, and Schenzen without that same observation. The really nice buildings were office or for the party members, and the rows and rows and rows of color-coded rooftop government housing were for the commoner coming into the city from the rural areas.

Go check out the 1,000’s and 1,000’s of units from Melo or The Estate Companies. There are only 84 units in 1000 Museum Park.

Their Yotel Pad project is nice, love that they understand that there is a HUGE demographic that is willing to use shared parking garages nearby and they can charge less for their buildings and create a better urban environment. Kudos to them!

Uh, every time the rendering of a new building is shown, it’s a “game changer.” I wonder, how many times will the game change?

Great project. Will lead the way for the futures buildings in downtown. Without parking. People over cars.

I give them 40 years tops and then they’ll probably pancake their residents as they collapse. You have to be crazy to be living in any condo in Miami

Heck, there’s more of a chance of getting killing by just walking down the street in Miami, therefore, I would rather take the chance of dying from a collapsing condo building in Miami.
