FAA Issues Approval For Overtown Development Spanning Multiple Blocks

The Federal Aviation Administration issued approval last week for a new development in Overtown planned to span multiple blocks.

The plans include four separate structures located along Northwest 2nd Ave between Northwest 11th St, Northwest 10th St and Northwest 9th St, the filing states.

The FAA approval letter was mailed to Historic Overtown Partners, LLC, which shares an address with developer Terra. An affiliate of Lion Development is also shown as a manager of the company in state records.

The tallest approved height is 162 feet above ground, or 173 feet above sea level.

Amazing! Let’s keep redeveloping Overtown until it’s a safe, walkable, integral part of our urban core. Gentrification doesn’t have to be a bad word.

lol get real. When has rent ever gone down in any redeveloped neighborhood? Just say you want to kick out the locals in exchange for your rooftop bars.

renters don’t get to decide what happens with neighborhoods—only owners

I think you misinterpreted my comment. I didn’t imply that rents would go down. Make it a safe, walkable area with rents dictated by the market.

Maybe overtown can get less greasy food as a result.

Ummmm….
I’m a local too. I have “vision’.

Overtown was crowded and vibrant until desegregation.

When the winners were able to move to better living conditions, they quickly ditched Overtown, and it has never been the same.

I think the federal government building a massive highway through it and knocking down 16,000 homes might’ve had something to do with the depopulation of the middle class from the area.

Funny how my uncle’s 1950’s built middle/upper middle class subdivision in the Midwest had an interstate sliced through it back around 1970 and is still to this day a really nice area. Gee wanna know what the difference was?

Stunner! Light up Miami! About 15 years ago there was a guy who was a trailblazer in illuminating the city. If this project looks as good when finished – it will be a great ambassador for this city’s image. Light up Miami

Light it up, yes, but not with billboards.

What’s the issue with billboards? Electronic Billboards are better than billboard banners all on the buildings and on the side of the road!

Overtown will be the new Wynwood, and actually has transit options and easily accessible to Brickell. Good job.

And even more accessible to Park West and its new Miami Worldcenter

Hold up…
You mean Wynwood developed WITHOUT a government MetroMover?
IMPOSSIBLE!
The very vocal majority is 100% convinced that nothing can happen unless their is a government Metromover.

Maybe the thoughtful minority has more wisdom than the squeaky wheels.

I mean all of Miami EXISTS without adequate public transportation. I think the idea is more that it could be much improved WITH it. So people can choose to use a car or not for their daily needs, options are always an improvement.

And public transit has to happen from the top down so it’s not something that can be achieved without governing bodies making it so.

It’s hilarious how they use a farmer’s market in one of the pictures to make the area seem super pedestrian and vibrant. As if the cars in this part of town ever slow down lol

Four-fifths parking garage, one-fifth box office building. SAD!

Actually this is just a regular boxy building and the bottom is usable space not just a parking garage.
