Kushner Files For Construction Permit To Build 36-Story Tower At 2000 Biscayne

New York developer Kushner Companies is moving forward with a major residential project in the downtown Miami area.

The company filed for a construction permit to begin building a 36-story tower at 2000 Biscayne. The 296-sheet set of plans were accepted by the city on July 25, records show.

A total of 393 residential units are planned, along with 5,500 square feet of ground floor retail and parking on levels 1 through 8. Previous plans showed 455 spaces.

The tower will top off at 418 feet. Total construction cost is estimated at $123.6 million, with 706,148 square feet to be built.

Miami’s Planning & Zoning Department already granted approval to plans with identical specs in 2017. Dorsky & Yue was listed as the architect then.

No contractor is listed yet on the newly filed permit.

The tower is the first of what will reportedly become multiple phases. The developer also controls additional property across the street.

The 2017 approval. It isn’t clear if Kushner will build the same design, but the specs on the new permit filing match:

Jared? Is that you? Did I hurt your feelings? First of all I never committed tax evasion and I never went to jail so right there I am doing better than your daddy. I was born dirt poor and now I own 2 business and live in Brickell and I did it the old fashion way. I earned it! Now go back under your rock and take a nap.

I dont think he said HE hasn’t made a mistake. He is pointing out his concerns about Kushner’s crooked family and his crooked father-in-law. We all make mistakes, but we all dont run the country. In your haste to defend, you misinterpreted the comment.

For my taste, Cite sucked the day that it opened. It looked like one if those Orlando suburb “new urbanism” developments.
The Paramount Bay next door is badass… it still shows beautifully from the bridge in the health district all the way to being up close.

Hi, POLO. Get off TNM and become an Architect & if you are already then maybe submit a proposal and get it done UNDER budget. Because we all know better-looking buildings cost A LOT more.

This mediocre thing will be going to be built within a walking distance from Missoni Baia, so your argument was probably valid 15-20 years ago. Obviously, Mediocracy runs in the family.

This is literally in downtown… There’s a trolley route along Biscayne that can take you to the offices near Bayfront, which is less than a mile and a half away. Or if you want more immediate jobs, look at Braman, Publix, Double Tree, Marriott, Hilton, Arsht, National Young Arts Foundation, Miami-Dade County Public Schools, or do those employers not count?

with all due respect, none of the jobs you listed are going to pay you enough to live in these apartments unless you are living with 2-3 people. I doubt (hope I’m wrong) that this development will include affordable housing.

Anonymous

This is actually an Opportunity Zone project, so there’s a good chance affordable housing units will be a component. That said, if you’re a car salesman or working for the county, yeah, you should be able to afford this.

There’s no affordable housing mandate in Opportunity Zones. This will most likely be market rate rental, of which there are a lot of new units nearby, primarily from low cost provider Melo, but others as well.

It’s “literally” in Edgewater, not downtown. The most practical mass transit is the metro mover at 14th street, but even that is a 6 block trek in Miami’s heat.
