Dezer Submits Proposal To Dig Entirely New Canal In North Miami Beach Surrounded By New Town

Dezer Properties submitted plans to dig a large new canal into the center of the Intracoastal Mall in North Miami Beach as part of a proposal to bring thousands of new residents to the area.

Dezer purchased the property six years ago. A few years later, President Gil Dezer was reported to have said he would build a “town for millennials” on the site, which is next to Sunny Isles (that report has since been deleted).

The new canal will be connected to the Intracoastal Waterway. There will be a waterfront promenade on all sides, along with docks and kayak launches.

A water taxi service is also shown on the plans.

Next to the new canal, towers would rise up to 48 stories.

The master plan includes:

  • 380,000 square feet of retail
  • 2,000 multifamily residential units
  • 175 key hotel
  • 200,000 square feet of office
  • “Extensive” public spaces
  • Around 4,500 parking spaces

The proposal has been submitted to the city of North Miami Beach. Dezer is asking for approval of a conceptual master plan and development agreement.

Zyscovich is designing the master plan.

Wonder where the water taxis would dock in Wynwood?
Love the marketing schemes developers use.

Maybe Melo could build a dock for it in front of their proposed twin tower.

Next door to Wynwood Garage.

You are correct. As a millennial myself I can tell you that I used to live in North Miami by Ives Dairy Rd. I was renting a two bedroom there with over 1200 square feet but I work in Brickell and the commute was just too much to handle. I found a studio for the same price across the street from my job and I took it. I only have 600 square feet now but I love it! No more commuting for me. Unless they work in North Miami I don’t see how this will be a millennial project, more likely just an extension of Little Moscow.

Maybe he will dig a canal on 36st into Wynwood.

this part of Miami really needs some redevelopment. Great scale hope it gets approved fast.

I am telling you Gil dezer is hot, build this one.

Tell that to the suckers at Porsche flipping their units at big losses

LMAO – who in their right mind would pay millions of dollars to live in that tower and look out the window at McDonalds, Denny’s and strip malls.

NYC Loves Miami

I was wondering the same thing.

McDonald’s, Denny’s, & strip malls are so bae

But he’s laughing all the way to the bank and on top of that, he’s moving his Art and car collection out of Miami.
Traitor!

but have you seen him naked?

I wouldn’t want to. Cut sausage.

Shawn Kouri

Agreed. Why not make it almost solar powered.?

Shawn Kouri

And add electric car charging stations. Stores that should go there should include Gap, BYTON, Levi’s, Mark & Spenser, Spencer’s, Kate Spade, and More.

As a millennial, this whole plan seems gimmicky. How will those water taxis to Wynwood work?

305

It’s designed by Zyscovich, of course it is gimmicky

Is that legendary duffy’s going to be destroyed with this project ?

Shooters was before Duffys much much better food. Duffy serves horrible food.

“vaporetto” boats that would offer quick connections to South Beach and Wynwood” I’d like to see if he said that with a straight face.

I know how the vaporetto will work. It drops you off at the port of Miami and you change to Virgin’s train and then from downtown you call Über

Build it!!!

I hear millennials love driving and being stuck in traffic.

Hope it never gets approved! Awful scale for the location! Also, I doubt the water taxi can take you to Wynwood since it’s not even by the bay

it would be supper cool if the city added a “high rise river” like metromover but with water instead.

Anonymous

Metromover should be extended to Wynwood and here, and powered by shore power.

F the Haters — love visionary projects like this.

Isn’t this place contaminated?

That was the site of SoleMia.

yes built on top of a landfill. LOL

Miami #1

Looks beautiful!
For mellinials?
….and they want their student loans forgiven??

Shawn Kouri

Hold on a second. Is this where Duffey’s is located?

Shawn Kouri

Where will Duffey’s Sports Grill go? That is a popular hotspot on weekends. A lot of boaters come up and eat at Duffey’s. If this gets built, where will Duffey’s go? Also, water taxis don’t go up to Wynwood. They either dock at the Miami River or Miami midtown.

Place for millennials? What will the name of the tower be “Your Mother’s basement”?

Imaginary transit, love it!
The map shows an [imaginary] Tri-Rail Coastal Link stop (?) on US1.
They also want a vaporetto (?) going into Wynwood. Has anyone told them Wynwood does not have any waterways? Do they expect to dig one so the boats will get there?
Anyone can tell me how long a boat would take from this site to downtown (Omni, for instance)? I am genuinely curious.

“Town for millennials”? You mean town for millennials with trust funds? Like the idea nonetheless.I assume that the renderings will get nicer should things get rolling.

Anonymous

Why would a millennial with a trust fund move to North Miami Beach when they could live in Brickell or Miami Beach?

Anonymous

Not all trust funds are brickell worthy.

Shawn Kouri

That would gentrify North Miami with its rival mini city, SoLe Mia. However, these pictures only look more like drawings. I would like to see renderings of something like the real thing. I think it should have luxury condos with penthouse is up to $20 million, condos by Luxcom, Mass-Market To Mid-Range Luxury Condos by Lennar and Condos by Tole Brothers.

Anonymous

It’s called a conceptual design

Shawn Kouri

Well I can’t wait to see the real renderings. This would rival two mini cities in the area, SoLe Mia and Uptown Biscayne. Gentrifying North Miami and creating a total of around 15,000 to 30,000 new jobs for North Miami. After all, that area is an OK area because it’s nice by the water, but when you go a little bit West of that zip code to the West side, it’s a bit of a grimy location. This may fix that a little bit.

Anonymous

I would disagree with you. I think that area west is increasingly improving every year. now if you go on the other side of 95 that’s a different story.

Shawn Kouri

I mean!!!! Yes it is somewhat. There are a few more millennial families and starter homebuyers moving into the area. There would be even more improvements to that area with these three cities within the city
