Developer Unveils Plans To Build Civica With 342 Residential Units

Plans for Civica are being switched from office to residential.

According to the newly revised plans, Civica will now rise 27 stories and include:

  • 342 residential units
  • amenities
  • commercial and office
  • 590 parking spaces in an 8 level garage (a minimum of 389 spaces are required by zoning)

The number of floors is increasing from the 22 stories previously planned, but the height is changed by less than a foot (310 feet) due to lower ceiling heights.

The Civic Center Metrorail station is a five minute walk from the property. The 836 expressway, which is being rebuilt as part of the Signature Bridge project, is directly behind the property.

The project is set for review by Miami’s Urban Development Review Board at a meeting on December 21.

Cube 3 is the architect.

Taurus Investment Holdings and The Congress Group, both of Boston, are listed as the developers.

The previous office design blows this residential design away.

Who wants a balcony facing the SR 836!? The previous design was much better.

People in line for housing coming to Florida each day. You have to look down to see it, otherwise your typical view is the greenery in Spring Garden and maybe the Miami River.

Agree. But this isn’t too shabby. I like the mural.

Ik people hate when parking is brought up, but why do all developments today have just an absurd amount of parking? Do you seriously need 2 cars per person when living in an urban center? What sustainability are we planning for in the future, this isn’t healthy.

Not enough demand

If there is not enough “demand” for office space then that tells you something is not right with the local market/economy. Why is it that cities like Atlanta, Houston, Charlotte and Denver have high “demands” for office space?

Because local goverments court those types of developments. We will never get there if we only focus on tourists, bars, nightclubs and the beach. Who takes Orlando seriously? You go, visit the parks and you leave. Vegas? You go, see a show, lose some money, and leave. Those are the images/ reputation we have created for ourselves and many believe we should continue to push. We all know Miami is special.this is a place with a lot of potential. But we need to grow up and grow out of the “party city” phase without discarding it completely, and focus on other marketing strategies like we have started recently. Tech companies, better local schools and affordable housing just for starters.

Smart to design podium to be appealing from highway (not to neglect this key vantage point), will make sure the city is beautiful entering/existing – been saying this awhile! Nice job!

We need office space downtown, not here. We need housing everywhere.

What a major downgrade

Maybe I’m in the minority, but I preferred lined up balconies and windows than a glass box with toilet paper dropped down it.
