Miami Could See Skyline-Altering Mixed-Use Development In Brickell And Edgewater Opportunity Zone

Two big development sites are being marketed in Edgewater and Brickell.

The sites are known as 99 Riverside and 1700 Biscayne. Both are being marketed by Avison Young

At 99 Riverside in Brickell, a developer can build up to 80 stories, including around 800 to 1,400 residential units, marketing material states. The project totals around 2.08 acres, but could change based on whether a street closure can be secured. Three parcels there have been assembled for the first time.

The three 99 Riverside parcels are located at 99 S.W. 7th St., 625 S.W. 1st Ave., and 66 S.W. 6th St.

In Edgwater, the 1700 Biscayne Blvd. spans 3.04 acres in an opportunity zone. Up to 60 stories with 500 residential units per acre or 1,000 hotel keys per acre as well as office and retail space can be built there.

Both sites have T6-36B-O zoning, allowing developers to build mixed-use high-rises that will make permanent impacts on the Miami skyline, brokers say.

Avison Young’s Michael T. Fay is the listing broker for both properties.

Prime real state properties in Miami’s hottest neighborhoods qualify for the Opportunity Zones Tax Cuts. Isn’t that something?

The president is a “business man” and not another “presidential” lawyer … that’s the reason the economy is growing faster than ever and things get done!!!!!?

The reason the economy has been on this steady growth it’s been experiencing is because of the Democrats and their stimulus policies. Trump is a terrible businessman, therefore he has to have other people doing the decision making and there are recent articles out right now revealing that he’s lost a billion dollars, because he’s really a con-man not a businessman.. just ask Mitt Romney.

Sure… so why Obama said that the GPD will never reach more than 2 and after 8 years of slow economic growth the increase started few months after Trump policies on taxation and tariff took place?

Don’t say “Obama said,” post the quote. And dispute what I wrote and said about the stimulus package program. I can post reports on the economy going in a steady upward projection since Obama became president and the Democrats stimulus package.

And another thing.. dispute what Mitt Romney called Trump.

While we were talking about Russia collusion…Trump’s 2.3 trillion tax cut for corporations which is a 2.3 tax on the middle class just add $797.00 a year to the average American family a.k.a “China tariff’s”, Trump has taxed the average middle class household to the tune of $6,900.00 per year and no one calls him out on that.

oh really? because there’s no other way those parcels would get developed EXCEPT for a tax break? If Brickell and Edgewater weren’t so hot then maybe it would be justified, but no one is going to believe it in this market….

If this Brickell lot gets built, coupled with the BCC expansion on the Tobacco Road site and the other towers going up right across the street where the 2 small motels are/where, these couple blocks are going to be VERY dense

I wonder if Swire is interested in adding more square footage to its development since it would easily be integrated to BCC; after all the demand for more retail, more housing, more office and more hotels are ‘exponentially’ there…just a matter of time. I personally think it would be awesome so see BCC taking more area and adding more entertainment options for Brickell. It would be great to have less high end retail and more middle level retail like Club Monaco or JCrew, and also some restaurant chains that aren’t garbage like Houstons, Alexanders, etc. Even a wing dedicated to furniture stores (like Crate and Barrel or Restoration Hardware) could be a good idea since downtown is growing so much and adding more residents every day….even another publix will soon be necessary.

There are 3 publixes in Brickell already and one being built at the Brightline station. I’d prefer a trader Joe’s or Fresh Market or even a Sedanos than another Publix.

Honestly this pocket of Brickell just east of the metro rail could use a Walgreens or CVS more than a Publix

Anonymous

Are you kidding me, there’s a CVS just a few blocks away at SW 8th just East of I-95 and a few blocks south of that is a Walgreens at SW 13th. Not that I’m advocating for Publix either… but we need more imagination than more of the same crap we already have. Home Depot would be nice, the closes one to downtown is SW 8th St.

Facing the water should have the most upscale tenets, while further inland can become more mid-range when all the stores nobody has heard about close.

Publix is a Republican PAC disguised as a grocery store.

If they are able to close out the roads, the property would gain roughly 30k square feet. Government should grant this in exchange for portion of property along the water for riverfront park.

A 900ft building next to a 1049ft building on the Brickell site would look awesome in the skyline.

Between Related, Swire, and Crescent Heights circling every piece of available property in both areas, I wonder why this is being marketed publicly. If one of those developers hasn’t already privately purchased the property – given such a seemingly great opportunity with the opportunity zone – I suppose it begs the question why.

Perhaps it is to generate global demand, but if those companies are not already all over this, I’d be worried what I was missing if I was an out of town developer.

Why not have everyone compete….they are just trying to get the highest price.

Development sites are often priced by buildable density, which this has a lot of. In fact, so much density that the price may, on a gross basis (not per buildable SF), equate to a price ahead of comparable sales of similar size. Therefore, the seller may be unwilling to sell to Related or similar party as they would require a discount to account for bulk size of the site.

So what’s an opportunity zone?

Anonymous
2 years ago

probably a tax abatement for a certain number of years (10 most likely). It’s a strong enabler for initial construction financing and attracting seed capital to the project. Given the construction/development is the riskiest portion of any new project, these incentives go a long way to making a project feasible. After the ten year period, the municipality is left with high-end improvements taxed at the prevailing rate.

Kind of unfortunate that these types of properties are the ones that will be bought under the new opportunity zone regulations and not ones that would actually stimulate local neighborhoods that it was intended for. C est La Vie in America!

Street closures = bribes to politicians. I am still reeling from the closure of 7th and 9th streets in world center by Paramount. NO ONE should every be allowed to close down an existing and in use public Street. Traffic on NE 2nd Ave is a nightmare after a show in AAA cause these 2 streets are closed.

AAA traffic nightmare is largely caused by police closing down Biscayne when events let out. That takes out six lanes of traffic, forcing it all onto a few two lane streets.
Presumably this is for pedestrian safety, but there’s got to be a better way.
