Kushner Files With FAA, Says 2000 Biscayne Tower Will Begin In October

Kushner Cos. will soon begin building a tower at 2000 Biscayne in the downtown Miami area, according to a new filing with the Federal Aviation Administration.

It is the first phase of what will eventually include 1,100 apartments valued at $550 million.

The developer plans to break ground on the tower in October, the filing states. Two tower cranes will be installed in March 2020.

Construction permits have already been applied for with the city’s building department.

The permanent tower height is expected to be 408 feet above ground, or 417 feet above sea level. Two temporary tower cranes will operate at heights of 467 and 507 feet above ground.

The specs exactly match plans for a tower submitted in 2017 by Verzasca Development, which then owned the property. Dorsky + Yue is the architect.

A 36-story tower with a lime green paint job was approved by the UDRB at that time. It will include 393 apartment units, along with 455 parking spaces in an 8-story garage and token ground floor retail.

Kushner was formerly managed by President Trump’s son-in-law Jared.

Well that’s a waste. 1990 called they want their building back.

This is by far one of the ugliest towers in recent memory. I don’t know of Dorsky + Yue but ouch.

Tell the truth, you wish you could live in this building when it’s done.. don’t you?

For the price of what this will cost, I’d rather live in Gables or South Miami and commute into Downtown.

Why are folks so defensive on here? I just hope you’re somehow related to the project.

But you can offend (that’s a derivative of the word offensive) all you want and get mad if somebody comments about what you said?

See that little box that has the word “Reply” in it below the comment you post?.. tell TNM you vehemently object to it being there.

Ok so why are you offended about me calling an inanimate building ugly?

And I’m not mad. I just don’t see how commenting whether I can live there or not has anything to do with the design of this hideous tower. I think the proposed Astoria building is cutting edge and beautiful. And that’s much more expensive than this.

I, of course, am too poor to afford any housing so my thoughts/comments on a design are entirely unrelated to whether I can live in a certain residence or not.

Buddy you are trying to be civil and make an intelligent comment on a site where trolls come to insult others anonymously. They wouldn’t dare try some of this shit in person. Dont try to reason with them. Write what you want to write and f*ck ’em. I gave up a while ago.

Better than what you’ve built.. uh, what have you built so far?

I never understand this logic. So can no one critique the President since he/she has never been President? Can you not critique your boss because you’ve never been the boss? Dumb logic is dumb.

First phase? What’s the second phase and where?

I thought after a while i would start to come to grips with the 2002 look but Wow it’s still ugly & dated.

It will be named “Crime Tower.”

The only collusion the Trump administration had with Russia is when Jared Kushner asked Putin how to make this building look like a Soviet housing block.

Understand MIA now has about a 6 year sales backlog of finished condons for sale. Not including what is already in the pipeline and adding 393 more what could go wrong, relative to prices, which I suppose developers and speculators deserve. BTW, this little diddie should really help traffic in the area (/s). As an extra added bonus, guess the FAA will again be forced to route traffic over more low rise sububan areas. Incidentally, how is MIA waste water capacity going to handle this added load (excuse the expression). And more folks locked up in another high rise after a hurricane or trapped in traffic on their way to I95. This is all great news, but not for anyone who lives here.

I hope you realize that your whole comment doesn’t make sense because you began by saying “Understand MIA now has about a 6 year sales backlog of finished condons for sale.”

If no one is buying, your premise about these other issues are non-founded.

The Next Miami, if you’re going to do what whiners who come on this site tells you to do, then eliminate your comments section altogether. Saying a building is “ugly” or something is “ghetto” along with more tacky language that I’ve read countless times is beyond lame and tiresome, it’s downright annoying, but I never requested this site to sensor anyone’s comment, even after I see someone making a crack at someone’s mother or use offensive language on this site. I either deal with it or ignore it, because each person will comment to another person’s comment the way they see fit.

This is a website for people interested in local construction and development, architecture, design, public works and the like, NOT a place to INSULT people because you dont like their comments. The result of everyone doing as they see fit, while others ignore it, has never done humanity much good. Look at the state of EVERYTHING around the world today. Is this the kind of trash you want your kids to think they are entitled to write?

I agree. You would think this type of site would attract more sophisticated/mature people. Oh well…

Dude, this site is free to read, if something about it annoys you that much, pay to get on another site that might pacify you.

Anonymous

So you disagree that the comments have gotten out of hand? Rude? Childish?

Anonymous

I just face reality that the term “freedom of speech” applies to even the comments section on this site. Whining and wanting people censored because I disagree with what they’re saying would demonstrate, especially on a free site, immaturity and fickleness on my part. I can think of other things to do with my time than whine about what about somebody wrote on a free site on the internet whether it be rude, childish, immature, dumb, or anything else you wanna classify it as. I realized a long time ago that none of these people who comment on this or any other internet site are paid to be polite to me, so I don’t expect or look for it.
