First Crane Installed At Project Near Midtown Miami With Whole Foods & 588 Apartments

Vertical construction is about to begin in Edgewater on a 588-unit apartment tower with a Whole Foods supermarket.

The complex, known as Nema Miami, broke ground in January 2022 at 2900 Biscayne Boulevard.

A photo shows that a tower crane is now being installed at the project site to begin vertical work.

Nema’s first phase is planned to rise 38 stories, or 430-feet and include:

  • 588 apartments
  • 42,030 square foot Whole Foods
  • 748 parking spaces (195 for Whole Foods customers)

A second phase of Nema is also planned with another 400 apartments.

Whole Foods signed a lease to occupy the supermarket space in March 2020, county records show.

Crescent Heights is the developer, with Arquitectonica the architect.

In Hialeah? They have already have super-duper centers. If here, where were you ten years ago regarding the backlash over a Walmart in a development that’s already anchored by Target?

Why won’t NextMiami stop referring to this as being near Midtown as if that were the only way to name this location?

This is Edgewater. Period.

I’m sure the extra 700 parking spaces will help traffic. /s

Try Akron, Ohio. I hear they are actually losing people and therefore their traffic is probably getting better.
