New Renderings Of River Parc As Plans Set To Be Heard By Miami River Commission

The Miami River Commission has scheduled a meeting next month to review Related Urban Development Group’s plans to build 1,800 new housing units at River Parc near Marlins Stadium.

One building is already complete, and another, the 150-unit Gallery at River Parc, is under construction.

The project will feature a riverwalk.

Related is planning to partner with Miami-Dade to build the River Parc Master Plan on a 22-acre property in Little Havana, across from Marlins Park and near the Health District and Downtown.

There are currently 800 units there in three public housing developments – Robert King High, Haley Sofge and Martin Fine Villas. Under the new Master Plan an additional 1,800 affordable and workforce housing units will be added, bringing the total housing count to 2,600. All 800 existing public housing residents will stay onsite at the same rent.

The Spring Garden neighborhood association is objecting to a restaurant planned for the property, according to minutes from the Miami River Commission’s Urban Infill and Greenways Subcommittee meeting this month.

It is incredible how Spring Garden residents try to assert control over the property rights of landowners that surround their historic district. With all the new units considered in this project, it is logical that restaurants, markets and other small business be included. As a property owner in the Miami River district, I understand the noise that emanates from Sea Spice and the like, but I know that it comes with the territory of being so close to downtown. If the property owners of Spring Garden want to have their peninsula be an enclave of the 1950s then so be it, but please don’t feel entitled to restrict every other neighborhood that happens to encircle Spring Garden.

I think the FAA needs to approve it first.

Yeah.. I saw some ants building an ant-mound near this area… I hope they got an approval from the FAA before they started construction.

I can’t believe I am going to type this…but Marlins Ballpark might end up being in the perfect location similar to Wrigley Field.

I don’t understand why there would be objections to the noise level of a restaurant when there’s a mega stadium within spitting distance, seems like they’re just pissing in the wind

There is WAY too much pavement in this project, besides the surface parking, mostly around the two curvilinear buildings on the north near the river. Can the be adapted to hold more water instead of dumping it into drains and into the river at high rain events? A site this large, and all SAP’s should easily be able to hold more water than typically required.

Gee, another expert who knows more than the private and Miami-Dade County developers.

They should’ve consulted you before they did the design.

At least the buildings have some nice curves and take effort to conceal inevitable parking, and aren’t another Melo monstrosity.

Metromover was supposed to be extended to Marlins Stadium at one point. I guess this was just another pipe dream?

I’m shocked this comment hasn’t been shouted down by all the hipsters that can afford all the $2000 one bedrooms in town. They just have a H-On for density, height and girth.

Urban Development Review Board, the Miami River Commission’s Urban Infill and Greenways Subcommittee, and others. Everybody’s got an opinion. Are all these hoops to jump through really necessary?
