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.
