Developer Submits Proposal To Partially Demolish, Rebuild Shops At Sunset Place

A redevelopment has been submitted by the new owner of the Shops At Sunset Place.

The proposal calls for the addition of several  towers, with hotel and residential use. The hotel would have 182 rooms in a 17-story building, while two 14-story residential buildings would have 442 rental apartments.

The City of South Miami has scheduled Special Planning Board Meeting on October 26 to discuss the proposal.

They should require the developer to build a pedestrian bridge as part of the approval. Would be very useful for the metrorail.

A bridge is a city project. Requiring a private developer to install a bridge is ridiculous.

Just like its ridiculous to have a developer refurbish the Brickell city center metromover station and the Adrian archest center metromover station and bus stop. Apparently you have no idea what you can have a developer do.

This is exactly what’s needed next to a MetroRail station and it’s a nice design as well. The residents will scream of course even though South Miami is supposedly a sustainability focused city. High density mixed-use around stations is the most basic requirement for transit to work.

It is about time. The Sunset Plaza never had a very bright future.

Compared to the Bakery Centre, it did quite well.

I think this is a transformational project that will revitalize the entire area and will greatly enhance the City of South Miami.

South Miami is thriving right now. Still a good development, but I’m not sure how much revitalizing the area needs.

I agree – great project for the better of the community. Problem is the City of South Miami, the extremely close-minded folks whom have lived therein for ages will surely try as hard as possible to destroy any sort of progress to the future. People like Bicycle Bob from the commission and other Ludacris folks with nothing better to do, will surely see the demise of this project. Hopefully those looking to the future outweigh those stuck in the past, as this property direly needs this reinvigoration not only for itself, but for the community (inclusive of the “old-timers”).

South Miami is the last remnant of the old Miami when this was a pleasant place to live. If you want empty highrises go to Dadeland and Brickell.

This design couldn’t be more boring and generic. Looks like it belongs off an atlanta off ramp and not in one of the best locations in Miami. I sincerely hope the city of South Miami stops them from turning such a pleasant urban center into a Holiday Inn Express.
