Kushner To Build $550M, 1,100-Unit Apartment Complex In Edgewater

New York’s Kushner Companies will enter the Miami market for the first time with plans to develop in Edgewater, according to Bisnow which cited unnamed sources.

The first phase will be about 400 units at 2000 Biscayne, with construction to begin in the third quarter. The timeline means that the developer likely intends to use plans already approved for the site, including a particularly ugly tower designed by Fort Lauderdale architect Dorsky and Yue.

Kushner is in contract to buy 2000 Biscayne from Enrique Manhard, who paid $13.1M for the land in November.

The website wrote that an additional phase of Kushner’s project is likely to be built on another property owned by Manhard. In total, Kushner will develop 1,100 units at a cost of $550 million.

Manhard also owns the 1900 Biscayne block, across the street. A 36-story Kobi-Karp-designed tower with 429 units was approved for the site in 2015, when it was owned by New York’s Atlas Capital.

60 story proposal was beautiful. But the “particularly ugly” comment i find interesting given that the most recent approved looks like pretty much everything in the city anyways?

I wonder if the initial 60 story proposal was included in the sale to this Manhard, and while he wiped his ass with it and produced this God forsaken abomination of a tower, Kushner now owns both and is simply going with the much nicer former design.

Are these the Kushners that man-child Jared belongs to?

Welcome to Miami Jarred, we thank you for developing one the ugliest buildings in the Biscayne Corridor.

Ugliest on the Biscayne Corridor? It’s a letdown compared to the previous proposal so sure, but ain’t the ugliest by a long shot.

Wow, tell us how you really feel.. “including a particularly ugly tower designed by Fort Lauderdale architect Dorsky and Yue”

They are reporting facts in this case – nobody has a positive opinion on the current rendering on the project.

I don’t think it’s that bad… although I prefer the 60 story design.

I appreciate the blunt honesty. This hideous thing shouldn’t get built and if it somehow does, it definitely will not cost $500M, unless the plan is to build this awful thing and then supplement it with world class towers next to it (seems unlikely). Melo builds these ugly looking things in 2s for $100-150M.

Kushner group has also normally had nice architecture, including a design by the late Zaha Hadid (One Thousand Museum tower).

Not convinced (and hoping) this is not what they are bringing to Miami.

Melo doesn’t build 1,100 unit buildings.

Project is in phases. Square Station by Melo was over 700 units and costs under $150M

That parking garage is hideous.

That sixty story tower is beautiful.. but all Miami can get and look forward to is more Aquitectonica designed crap.

Except none of these architects are Arquitectonica.

Sorry to disappoint you, but There is absolutely nothing exceptional about most of those buildings either….Did I mention I just came back from New York City?

ding ding ding ding ding!.. you’re the winner today for being the first person to compare Miami to NYC.

not all buildings in New york city are beautiful.there are lots of ugly buildings in that city

Anonymous

Should we compare Miami with Montgomery, Alabama instead?
And yes, most buildings in Miami are just OK them with the exception One Thousand Museum. 50% percent of the buildings in that list are still in the designing stages or under construction.

Those projects are just the exception, not the norm. There are way more Aquitectonica designed projects built and in the works like that hideous looking Skyrise crap.

I have always admired Arquatectonica, and especialy love Brickell City Center.
Now that I live in an Arqutectonica building, I appreciate them even more.

This Kushner building reminds me of a double-sized Club at Brickell Bay. #SAD!

It would be a blessing if it were an Arq. Building like SLS Brickell or SLS Lux.

Can we please go back to Plan A?

Exquisitely ugly!The Miami Prototype Building continues to litter Biscayne Boulevard. A hulking parking garage base with an uninspired stucco tower.

Will Kushner & Co. design new buildings for 1,100 unit plan, or will they use old plans from previous developers.

2000 Biscayne, I wonder if it was designed in the Year 2000?

wow this is ugly, the other two designs were much nicer

Original design is so much better and befitting.

crazy how the kushners were already in planning and under contract in an opportunity zone seemingly before every other developer in town…..

Hmmm…. just a coincidence
