Development Team Including Billionaire Planning 1.9M Square Foot Project Near Omni

Development Team Including Billionaire Planning 1.9M Square Foot Project Near Omni

In the downtown Miami area, the Price Choice supermarket could soon be demolished to make way for a mixed-use project.

MRR Development, which includes Rotem Rosen, Jerry Rotonda and Indian billionaire Anand Mahindra, is in contract to buy the supermarket and adjacent Learning Nest property for $30 million, with plans to redevelop it, according to The Real Deal.

Up to 1.9 million square feet is permitted on the site, which totals 1.42 acres.

MRR is said to be in talks with “Silicon Valley groups” for the new project.

Another project, Miami 18, is planned across the street, with up to 1,200 residences, along with retail and office.

If the City had any vision (they don’t) a light rail line would be built up North Miami Ave.

I get that with the metro over, the whole “if you build it they will come” mentality didn’t exactly pan out for some time, but the dynamics are here now and promising.

It’s unfortunate that global warming is an excuse they levy for negating the transportation options near the shoreline. The area loses too many talented people who decide to relocate back to stressful and absurdly long commutes.

If you think Miami is “too crowded,” you don’t know what that term really means yet.

Totally agree!! A Metromover line with a loop to the Design District, Wynwood and Midtown would be perfect!

While I do like the development that’s ongoing in that area, I would like to see more of those empty lots that we’ve been looking at for too many years now being announced for development instead of places with something on them.

If it’s not built or announced, it’s likely owned by a speculator camping on it and won’t be for awhile.

I hope they don’t knock it down until they’re ready to build.
City Hall restaurant was forced out two years ago, still a vacant lot. S and S had to leave over a year ago, building is standing empty.

I agree, forcing businesses out before they start to build is making this area look empty and abandoned. The big lot next to the cemetery has had a lot of developers promising so many things through out the years and is still sits empty today. This area could become something really special, hopefully it will happen soon.

The whole block, including the day care center, needs to be redeveloped. A tower can be curved so that it faces Biscayne Park, and another on the south side facing downtown.

This is a historic property and should not be demolished with the only exception being if the best park ever were to be developed instead.

I read that… this person is not talking about global warming, this person is saying that since this is another waterfront development TNM is reporting on, we’re bound to see those people who are always making comments saying “Miami is gonna be under water” when they see these articles.

What difference does that make? There are plenty of parks in Miami that, most of the time, sit empty every day.

Ridiculous, Miami has fewer parks than any comparable big city, and the ones we do have completely suck so it’s no wonder they are barely used. And parks are in fact a huge catalyst for adjacent high density development. You need to get out of Miami and visit some other cities and see how parks attract the high density development so many of us want.

Despite that stupid crap you saw from an article in some Parks or Wildlife magazine, it doesn’t refute or negate the fact that Miami has a lot of existing parks that are woefully under underutilized or stay just plain vacant.

I grew up in Atlanta. Georgia does not have that many beaches so people go to parks. If I wanted to go to the beach I would have to drive 4 hours to get there. South Florida has some great beaches. Why go to a park when you can go to the beach. Plus it is too hot in Miami to sit in a park full of mosquitos.

Parks often increase the value of the properties around them. We can’t just concrete over all of south Florida. Yeah, I’m a park nut…..and I do care.

Late last year my friend, who lives at Opera, and I went to this market, we came out less than 10 minutes later and his window was busted all they took was a backpack with gym clothes in it. This whole area is nasty and needs to get leveled and developed. Make it happen!
