Lobbyists Register For Two Planned Edgewater Apartment Towers

There are signs that two separate Edgewater apartment towers are now moving through the approval process in close proximity to each other.

In recent days, multiple attorneys registered as lobbyists with the city to represent the owners of the two properties on zoning and other issues.

The first lobbyist registration came on August 11 on behalf of the owner of 1775 Biscayne Boulevard (formerly the site where V-Tor was planned).

According to a note in the system, the lobbyist is representing 1775 Biscayne L/Cal LLC on land use and zoning issues regarding the property.

Pennsylvania-based LCOR purchased the property earlier this year. The developer said it is planning to break ground in early 2024 on a 540-unit apartment tower.

The second lobbyist registration came on August 16, on behalf of the owner of 1836 Biscayne Boulevard.

According to a note in the system, the lobbyist is representing AQOZFI SLP Biscayne, LLC on Historic and Zoning approvals for the property.

Plans were previously submitted for a 40-story tower with 364 apartments, to be built above the historic First Church of Christ, Scientist, built in 1926.

The owners of that property paid $20 million for it earlier this year. At the time, they said they planned a Q4 2022 groundbreaking.

Yes. Fill that neighborhood up! Too many empty lots still in Edgewater, and empty lots on Biscayne are just a crime.

I’m aware. Doesn’t mean there can’t be another Whole Foods closer to this site. If Publix can have 3 locations in Brickell, Whole Foods can certainly have a location in Midtown and another in south Edgewater area.

In the 70s and 80s, there was what I think you’d call a supper club there. It was called Les Violons. I think most of the clientele were Latin and called it Los Violines. My parents went every once in a while.

Thankfull V-Tor was never built. What a cluttered mess. Hopefully, the First Church of Christ, Scientist tower is redesigned for something more respective of the old church, or at least line up the windows on the rear portion, because it looks Melo Downtown Fifth-tier cheap and nasty.
