Development Rights Allocation Recorded At MiamiCentral Supertower Sites

A covenant has been recorded with Miami-Dade laying out exactly how development rights are to be allocated at MiamiCentral’s Supertower sites.

According to the documents recorded on September 7, the Supertower sites are being allocated development rights for:

  • 2,007 residential units
  • 49,634 square feet commercial/retail
  • 2,136 parking spaces

Currently, the LLCs that have title to the property all appear to be controlled by affiliates of Florida East Coast Industries.

However, the company said in a filing earlier this year that it is in contract to sell the land.

Adjacent to Metrorail, MetroMover, Brightline, multiple bike lanes, public parking garage across the street, and soon Tri-rail, and yet, in possibly the most dense transit option location in the entire state – Still 2,136 parking spaces.

Okay, if it were up to you, it would be illegal to own a vehicle if you want to rent a unit in one of these proposed residential buildings?

No. I own a car. But I also see the amount of open space in all the garages around town. If it were up to me, i would ensure there is public private partnerships to to create Shared use garages within the urban core. This would allow for more productive, sustainable, economically feasible and affordable developments of all types. And more efficient land use.

Lol.. “I own a car.” Yeah, but you sure don’t want people who’ll be living in these proposed residential buildings to own one. Plus, I bet you can conveniently look right out the window at your car or take just a few steps to your garage to get to it.

If they want to own a car, that’s up to them. My point is I don’t think all of those 2,136 spaces will be used. Could a site with this level of public transit around it not have half as many spaces? Massive parking space counts make the podium larger, use more materials, and drive up rents. A shared public garage is directly across the street from this proposed project. I park in a shared-use garage that is not in my building. It works fine. Shared garages are good for the urban core and developers. For instance, it opens up development potential for smaller sites that may not be able to fit parking, and the tenants still have an option to park nearby.

Tell the truth, you moved into a building where you could only park you car in a garage across the street because that was a cheaper option. Stop trying to tell people how to spend their money.

Theres a massive parking garage owned by the City of Miami directly across the street from this apartment building

It’s not crazy to think the people choosing to live in the urban core of a major metro area should not own a car. There’s literally NOT ENOUGH SPACE for every Miami resident to be driving their own car. This is why cities like NYC or London actually invest in public transport.

Most of us want convenience not sustainable developments. Only younger people worry about that stuff. If you can afford a nice car and a nice apartment you want CONVENIENCE.

It has 2,000 residential units….no studio will get a parking spot and probably none of the smaller 1br What more do you want the 3br will probably have 2 spots and the PH may have more.

I walk 2-3 Miles a day and yes its hot, but I’m much happier and I’m the guy laughing at all the stressed out drivers honking and cursing at eachother and risking lives just to save a minute or rushing to red lights in their shiny debt.

As you pay attention to me in my air conditioned car and comfortable leather seats, realize that I’m not stressed or honking. I’m doing business deals or providing non-profits my talent to benefit the community.
I love what I do, and it’s easier to focus on making the world better when I can focus on that rather than walking on noisy, crowded sidewalks.
My fellow human beings don’t want to listen to my loud phone conversations anyway.

Do what you want, it’s okay. You and the other people on the sidewalks laughing to themselves provides levity…

Nobody. Everything in the core is within about a mile radius so 2 miles per trip is what Miami is becoming. Slowly people will embrace less driving, the key is obviously housing costs vs wages, which hopefully rebalance as more supply comes online and the pandemic boom fades.

Summer is hot, but the other 75% of the year it’s perfect to walk. Much less stressful and healthier.

There aren’t enough jobs based in downtown for all the future residents of these units being constructed. Many residents will have to drive to their jobs in the suburbs.

You are aware that with more people moving into the area, the roads wouldn’t be able to handle the cars anyway (they can’t handle the ones they have now). It doesn’t matter what anyone wants or desires. Driving simply wont be an option unless you want to take 30 minutes to go a block or 2. Those roads are never going to get bigger. If these buildings are for 2nd homes that few people actually live in then it would be ok but if all these new buildings will be fully occupied, people need to wrap their heads around the fact that that many cars can’t drive on the streets.

This is an excellent point. Having lived in DC, Chicago, and Manhattan, I feel like Miami’s road infrastructure is much more constrained. As the density increases, I don’t see a solution that will alleviate incredible traffic congestion

You could make up all the scary and atrocious scenarios you want, but the actual fact is, you really don’t know what will happen if these apartment buildings are built downtown.

Is a TOD-Transit Oriented Development simply based on location and proximity to transit, or must it have other qualities, like, less than 1:1 parking?

No, the developer wanted less parking because parking garages are expensive to build. They went to the City (because this is in City of Miami), and the City because of Corrupt Corollo said “build more parking!!!”. The Developer was like nah and then went to apply for a permit from the County who approved the less parking allowance, superseding the City of Miami’s decision.

If it was up to the City of Miami, this building would have had 2 Parking spots for every unit. But the Developer got a waiver from the County which allowed them to lower it.

There is about 50,000 sq ft of retail.
In your world, do all employees take the train?
What if they have to pick up the kids after work? Or they care for an elderly parent?
Shouldn’t they have the freedom and liberty to drive and park?

What about customers? If I wanted to buy a sofa or case of beer and some chips in the retail spaces…do I have to take those goods home in designated bike lane?

There are less than 1 parking space per apartment. Relax.

OK everyone. A weird monstrosity but not awfully ugly. And let the prospective tenants pay for the extra parking if they choose to when they buy in, it’s their money…… I say build it, with the bitter realization that we are moving up to the top 40 in the world, very acceptable like a San Diego with hormones….. an Amsterdam or a San Francisco? Forget it.
