Developer Preparing To Break Ground On 398-Unit Apartment Tower In 2022

A Miami developer is planning to begin construction on a 398-unit apartment tower in 2022.

NR Investments says it wants to build the project as workforce and affordable housing units, with starting prices ranging from $1,747 for a studio to $2,750 for a 2-bedroom.

The developer is asking the Omni Community Redevelopment Association for a grant of $15 million and an additional $13.6 million in Tax Increment Financing in order to be able to price the apartments at those affordable prices.

The CRA board was scheduled to review the financing requests at a meeting yesterday.

In addition to the apartments, the project is planned to include 9,000 square feet of ground floor retail.

Construction is planned to get underway in June 2022, with completion in October 2024.

Total construction cost of the tower is estimated at $141.4 million.

This project will bring the much need density and apartments but the term affordable at 2,700k for a 2 bedroom is crazy‼️

Its a two bedroom in the urbancore, they clearly have units at 1700 which are a discount for the urban core.

Considering the median household income of the county is $59k and you need to earn 3x the rent to qualify…. that studio at $1747 requires $63k in income… and the $2.7k two bedroom requires $97,200 in income… median household income is not per capita so…. yeah even the $1.7k isn’t really a discount.

A 2/2 is made to be shared by two adults or by two working parents and 1-2 kids. Which using your x3 calculation would put it at 48.6k of income for each working adult.

Not for something called affordable housing–$1700/mo for a studio is high end in South FL and above what over half the workers can afford.

If no one is willing to rent it at that price it’ll become affordable…If you want affordable housing they have plenty in San Francisco and LA look how well its worked out for those cities. The only answer is we need to build more which Miami is doing, it’ll take time but rents will fall or stay flat.

What happened to the Uni Tower, anybody remember this headline? “Uni Tower To Begin Construction In Omni Area Next Month After HUD Secretary Ben Carson Attends Unveiling Ceremony” this was 10 months ago..

Buydumb’s HUD has bigger fish to fry and burn, like idiotic plans to ban single-family zoning, which would ultimately make housing more costly, especially when land is scarce. Existing single-family homes will become gold, meaning developers buying less for infill development assemblages, resulting in low supply and high demand.

This is a SCAM. Just like the Estefan’s vacant lot gotta $200K grant from CRA and they sell $40 tickets to the drive in movie. The downtown tax prayers got Jack $4!+ out of it. Same goes with this. I am sure the city is in collusion with some developers to skim off CRA money which they saw is flush with funds and they are scheming how to divert and steal these funds.

So sad to hear that Tao is no longer coming to women’s club in Edgewater and instead another surf and turf restaurant called klaw. Yeah we don’t care for another super expensive steak house. Tao is a nightclub/restaurant which is what is needed. How is this major news missed by TNM? can they give us inside scoop on what happened to Tao and how this ended up becoming a steak house? They mentioned a roof top bar but whatever happened to the Bayfront raised deck open air dining Tao planned earlier? Also they say klaw will be open by November but the building and the grounds are in utter shambles. How is it possible? TNM, please investigate. Thanks.

What happened to the beautiful glass tower proposed to cantilever over the historic fire station? The renderings of this proposal are a hideous mess of cluttered windows and tacky murals, and another insult to a historic building like Downtown 5th is to the Central Baptist Church. Frankly, this building makes even most Melo buildings look like One Thousand Museum!

I read the comments in most of these articles… its crazy to believe that so much people are okay with what’s going on in Miami. To ask the city for subsidiaries and have a studio starting at $1,700 is absolutely absurd. I know plenty of people who live in NY and Cali and they have to work 2-3 jobs to make ends meet (not get ahead in life). All of you need to stop with this build it now mentality. There is a reason so much people are leaving states like NY and Cali. We need to make sure that if our local gov’t is giving money to build these towers, its for the immediate benefit of those who live in the Miami Dade area and not people moving from NY and Cali.

Where is your sense of diversity? Best cities in the world are cosmopolitan. Learn the meaning of it.

Tokyo isn’t very diverse. Neither is Hong Kong. Or Singapore. Tens of thousands of expats in a city of tens of millions doesn’t count. Neither is Mexico City. Or Santiago, Chile. Most Latin American cities are still pretty Latin. Most European cities are still mostly white, except for London and Paris.

“Latin” is subjective when an Italian, German, or Japanese person from Latin America can be considered “Hispanic,” as well as Blacks, Indians, and everything in between. Demographics aren’t really conducted well. Also, I assume you’ve never been to many European cities if you’re just alluding to London and Paris. You could have at least included Frankfurt, and your argument would have had some more merit.

Imagine if Kamelface Hors**t, who was the preferred darling of her party’s establishment, got utterly destroyed in a Primary Election because nobody outside avocado toast and kombucha Commiefornia likes her, but then forces her in the door making a palatable old man like Biden choose her as his Vice President, stuffs ballot boxes, and will try the 15th Amendment or forcing Biden to resign to initiate her reign. She was shown as utterly incompetent in a debate again Mike Pence. CNN and other media outlets called it “white mansplaining,” until she did interviews and couldn’t answer a single question, and goes missing for long periods of time.

BLM is a White movement. Look at their supporters….
All they want is to destroy America and divide us.
It’s pathetic. And all the simple minds that fall for it.
They simply don’t give a hoot for Blacks. If they did, they’d be concerned about education, black on black crime, the 60% of kids growing up with fatherless homes, I could go on and on but no, they are concentrating on division and alienating blacks from society. Immigrants come to this country, some of them black and are not concerned on what others think of them. They come here to better themselves, work and be entreprenurial not to sit and home and collect a welfare check

Then London should be kept British and Paris only full of Frenchmen? Places change and evolve. Why is race the issue? God created a diversity of races to make us all different. I think if people learned to accept themselves for what they are and not be concerned on what others think, this world would be a better place.
