Melo Group Submits Plans To Build 441-Unit Project Near Edgewater Called Urban22, With Masked Garage

Melo Group has submitted plans to build Urban22, a new construction project with 441 apartments near Edgewater.

The proposal includes two towers rising 15 stories.

In addition to the residential units, the project is also proposed to include 7,168 square feet of commercial space, and 5,629 square feet of office space.

A parking garage is being built but will be completely masked with habitable liners. In total 529 parking spaces are proposed.

A letter from the developer states:

The Project’s design along the ground floor responds primarily to human scale and pedestrian interests. The Project provides inviting public sidewalks with landscaping, hardscaping, and other improvements. The proposed pedestrian amenities promote pedestrian interaction and provide a connection to the surrounding area. Parking for the Project is masked with Habitable Liners along all frontages which minimizes the visual impact a parking garage would have on the pedestrian realm and the urban landscape.

Melo Group is developing the property using an entity called Cardinal Plaza Corp.

G3 Design of Miami Beach is the architect of record.

The project is scheduled for a hearing before the Urban Development Review Board on April 21.

Parking masking should be mandatory in this city. .

Except nine times out of ten, it’s uglier than just having the garage exposed. I mean, One Biscayne Tower doesn’t look bad, and it’s over fifty years old.

We also see with the land they own, they’re not sitting on their “asses” with it.

They also require more power for ventilation and if someone plays loud music in their car units could hear it.

No parking at all should be mandatory.

You’re right about that. People in cars behind start honking their horns a split second after the traffic light turns green.

It hasn’t been doing a very good job, like most of Miami 21 that gets waived.

miami 21 upzoned high rise areas so much that while in most cities that would be enough, it then allowed one to waive almost everything with variances etc, so there’s almost no building code now. it’s all justified by new urbanism’s philosophy.

Good.. now these senseless zoning codes that’s holding up redevelopment that’s needed in most areas of Miami need to be deep-sixed also.

Right. so what if we are one of the top densest cities in america, except the others have pretty good mass transit and we have a lousy one guranteeing that if we think traffic is bad now … and so what if our infrastructure isn’t able to handle the density, nor that the development’s creating a greater spread of rich and poor. to some, it’s 1950’s with its concept of ”progress”which is all that matters.

not sure how often you drive from 3 to 7 pm on it. often backed up for blocks and blocks. zoning there was justified by a promise ne 2nd ave would definitely have a streetcar running down it. now, no one even remembers that false dpz claim prior to 2010 passage.

Agree 100%. Mostly very basic-looking buildings, although they did a surprisingly good job, IMO, with Aria.

Why not a 30 story building and a park for the residents where the second tower goes? Better for rain water to sink in too!

The city and county sits between an ocean and the Everglades and you’re worried about rain water going somewhere?

guess you haven’t noticed that edgewater blocks which never flooded, do as soon as the new high rise goes up. so, regardless of whatever drainage mitigation the bldgs supposedly are designed to handle, the effect at end is far worse than how rain was handled when there was green space. if you’re trying to walk down some of these high rise streets during and after rains, yes, reason to worry about where the rainwater is not going.
