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.
