Developer Proposes 7 At Blue Lagoon With 1,182 Units

Developer Proposes 7 At Blue Lagoon With 1,182 Units

A hotel and residential project is proposed by Weiss Group at Blue Lagoon.

If a rezoning is approved, the project would include 888 residential units, 294 hotel rooms and 1,412 parking spaces spread over six buildings. The tallest height would be 16 stories.

Miami’s Planning, Zoning and Appeals Board is scheduled to review the rezoning request at a meeting today, but city staff recommend denial. Workforce and affordable housing units are being pledged in exchange for the rezoning.

Kobi Karp is the architect.

When you hear people talk about induced demand, he’s an example. 1500 parking spots with 888 living units.

Brand new widened highway right at your doorsteps. Minutes to downtown on his brand new highway.

Until 5-10 years from now when said highway is completely filled again because more people are using it since there is more capacity.

Well news flash, this is at the very western edge of the city and realistically metro service won’t reach this community in our lifetimes. Cars are a necessary evil. And buses are for poor people. I say build it!!!

Hey, I think you are thinking of a different blue lagoon or international airport. This one is not on the Western edge of the City.

It’s not even past Red Road.

Amazing piece of property. Brilliant plan for an area that has been overlooked for decades. Great design and density plan. I’m ready to move. Water, paths, kayaking, and more. Wow

NW 7th Street is James with traffic commencing at 3:30 PM in both directions east and west; as another 1k vehicles and it now becomes a nightmare.
Unfortunately there are no plans to widen NW 7th street. I cannot imagine exiting or entering this property. Yikes!

Sure! We never built any rail on this corridor – so let’s jam the entire area with high density development!

I have news for you, 93% of the county has no access to rail. Your statement makes no sense. At least, it’s closer to the city and highway. Imagine the biggest growth areas like Doral, Miramar, Homestead and all the Western unincorporated areas…Have you thought about those areas? There is no stopping the growth and the city was never built to provide mass transit. Too late. Solution: Grin and bear it

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Thank you!! I’m tired of people complaining that access to rail should be the deciding factor if a development gets built. Believe it or not, not all of us want to ride rail, the bus, or bike everywhere. It’s just not practical. It could be decades before mass rail reaches all points of the city. Get over it!!!

Except this isn’t Doral, Miramar, Homestead, and “all the Western unincorporated areas.” A lot of Flagami directly to the south was platted in the 1920s and 30s, although it might not seem like it since most the houses were built after WWII. It’s pretty walkable and can be retrofitted for transit. You’re argument areas were never built to provide mass transit and therefore shouldn’t is flawed, especially when it has had a degree of success even in places like Boca Raton, with the most-used Tri-Rail station to the extent another is proposed. Learn about the actual solutions!

Cluttered, typical Kobi Krap. Yes, this area needs more investment, but what happened to quality control? Could be decent TOD if the Metrorail Orange Line is extended from the airport to Doral like it was supposed to until our “leaders” blatantly stole the penny tax revenue.

Why did it take so long to develop this area. It’s pretty centrally located, access to 836, the airport, Coral Gables, buses run through 7th Street to get to downtown and it’s beautiful with the lagoon…

I hear they’re getting Brooke Shields to play a saxophone on a hover board for the groundbreaking.

An incredible design for an amazing piece of property. This is the kind of planning Miami needs. Been watching this site for decades and now, finally, a real vision emerges

This a very interesting design… Modern yet has a classic feel to it. The area needs a facelift, and this is just what it was missing.
