Mill Creek Applies For Construction Permit To Begin 36-Story Downtown Miami Apartment Tower

A developer has applied for a construction permit to build the 36-story Nexus Riverside tower in downtown Miami.

The application was filed with Miami’s Building Department on July 29. A full set of plans has yet to be attached to the application, so it isn’t yet under review.

According to the application, the Nexus Riverside tower will rise 36 stories, or 411 feet.

It will include 428 apartments, spread over a total of 694,023 square feet of building area.

Total hard construction cost is estimated at $121,454,026.

Adler Group is listed as the owner of the property, with Mill Creek residential listed as the contractor. Mill Creek is also similarly listed as the contractor on the 27-story Modera Biscayne Bay apartment tower currently nearing completion in Edgewater.

The project had a hearing before the Urban Development Review Board in July, and received a recommendation of approval by the board.

At the meeting, a representative of the developer told the board that the project was moving forward as a standalone development regardless of what the happens with the city office building next door.

The city is said to be reconsidering its plan for a new office building next door, according to Miami Today.

Completion of the tower is scheduled for 2023, according to a letter attached to the July UDRB application.

NBWW is the architect.

That may take some time as the city now appears to be dragging its feet with the office component.

That city office building is such an eyesore in that it continues to promote the immense underutilization of the river front. As long as that thing stands there the invaluable riverfront of the parcel will continue to be the home of a few homeless people defecating along the waterfront facing sidewalk. Such a shame that this stretch of the riverwalk is absolutely disgusting – just hope that this project eventually prodds the city to move as was originally voted on!

I live across the river from here. When The Wharf first opened, I was excited to be able to walk along the river all the way up to the bar. I did it that one time, and never again. By far one of the most disgusting areas in Miami.

I literally witnessed a guy pull down his pants and take a dump in the middle of the sidewalk under I-95. He apologized though, so I guess we’re all good?

He’s only sorry he got caught! But yeah it’s a total sh!t show on this corner, literally!! The city should be ashamed that the building and zoning department building itself is a complete cesspool that’s directly on the water! It’s astonishing really…

Now that’s funny. I’m sorry but it is. I need a good laugh in these miserable times we live in.

The Miami today had a great op-ed today. All of us should be reading and pushing the city commissioners to act more like a team.

Correct me if I’m wrong but didn’t Adler Group have a bunch of grandiose plans and renderings to redevelop this site, only to farm it out to Shrill Creek ?

At first I thought “cool infill,” but then I realized this was the half-assed agreement with the city for rebuilding Riverside Center, when they should be moved to the historic Dade County Courthouse with city hall, and let the site be used to its full potential.

City Hall will not be moved from Coconut Grove. The city will most likely sell the courthouse as it is not willing to fork over the hundreds of millions of dollars it will take to modernize the historic structure.

Another boring, ugly stucco eyesore made out of cheap materials that’s so common in Miami.

Visually nice, too bad the east view is a Super Bowl sized power sub station and the west view is interstate 95

I keep wondering when the power station will be moved or a building will build above it.
