Notice Of Commencement Filed For 500+ Unit Midtown Project

Another 500+ residential units will soon be under construction in Midtown Miami.

AMLI Residential filed a Notice Of Commencement with the county on March 5, stating that they were beginning construction on an apartment complex at 2900 and 3000 NE 2nd Avenue.

Construction appears to have been delayed by title issues. A permit was applied for last year, but was not approved. The project site spans multiple folios, and AMLI has obtained a tentative replat (including a street closure). A covenant in lieu of unity of title was filed on February 28.

According to the permit, 512 apartments are being built, with a construction value of $114 million. The tallest building tops off at 14 stories (a height restriction was placed on the deed to protect the views in Midtown).

In order to access Midtown Miami, residents will need to cross the Brightline tracks. At some locations, the rail company has posted signs that pedestrians and bicycles are prohibited.

Zyscovich is the architect. John Moriarty is listed as the contractor.

The City missed a golden opportunity to have transit, i.e. light rail on NE 2nd from downtown through Wynwood, Little Haiti, and Little River.

Instead we have Midtown which is successful, but lined with parking garages in every building. Traffic is horrendous in that area, and will never get better until transit is built.

There is still so much more density that will come, and now with more units in the area, and in the next year, 10,000+ more residents cars in Edgewater and midtown, there is going to be even worse traffic, making more people want public transport. This may also create a critical mass, that there will be enough potential riders of the proposed transit to make it happen. It is not too late.

It’s called Coastal Link. We need light rail, but it should be where rail doesn’t exist and where Metrorail expansions aren’t planned.

Sorry, but I disagree. While Coastal Link will (eventually) be nice, it is commuter rail with 30-60 minute headways if we’re lucky.

This corridor needs light rail with 5-10 minute headways.

We’re not even that dense for 5-10, even with development trends. East-west lines would certainly work, connecting with the current Tri-Rail line, which hopefully extends out to Kendall.

Is this Midtown or Edgewater? Serious question. I thought east of the tracks was Edgewater.

Unfortunately, like most cities in the U.S., it’s too late for mass transit. Back in the 40’s through the 60’s was the time to build a system that would work but the car companies won with their lobbying. Now we’re stuck with cities that are devoid of human interaction or connectivity. It’s the American way. Get used to it. Nothing will change

It’s the car culture… happens because of distance.. Suburban sprawl.

Our wealth as a society.. much easier to transport your family around in a car.

Is this going to look mediocre at best? Yes. But, that being aid, more retail, walkability and rentals that could maybe be somewhat” affordable an add to supply is always welcome.

Amli in sawgrass is way over priced as it is I couldn’t imagine them being affordable in midtown. ( 1/1 is like $1700-$1800)

I like this project. As much as it’s a mundane design, it’s infilling an empty chain link fence lot. Moreover, density in the area is needed to increase walkability.

Density in the area is needed for all types of businesses there also.

They should put in a pedestrian bridge halfway between 29th and 36th so people don’t have to walk further or illegally cross the RR tracks to access the shopping center

The Chiquita Banana site! Finally.

Good for NE 2nd Ave.; this street’s become a nice little beehive of activity with some cool restaurants and retail, so awesome to see more residential go in.

And still so sad that NE 2nd Ave. has better restaurant and retail options than Biscayne…

You can thank FDOT and the City for that.

I’m pretty sure Biscayne will be fine with all the planned projects.. but it’s nice to have a quieter 2nd Avenue running parallel a block away.

All the planned projects and still no decent restaurants/retail…

Not holding my breath; plenty of space already that’s filled with pure crap.

At least the Edge Water portion of Biscayne Blvd is showing some serious signs of revitalization, whereas The Upper East Side (MiMo District) is the one that Elvis Cruz from the Morning Side Civic Association sent to the death row with the stupid 35 feet height restriction.

Um, I live in Edgewater and apparently missed these signs. Plenty new buildings, but same old nonexistent and/or crappy retail/restaurants

I like it.. AMLI apartments are very nice.

Yeah I work next to one in Sunrise and they always build them in areas that are expanding.

This project is awesome.. this area will be awesome when finally complete.. already the change is incredible.

the first building on the corner is too short and ugly to be the first of the complex and a corner structure especially compared to the mid unit

Yaaawwwnnn…… yeah, whatever you say……

I actually biked past there today and a crew was removing the asphalt that was still there.

That property was a natural for a coastal link, tri-rail station. Now that it’s off the table, what’s left? Rail is great but without stations located where the greatest amount of people can use them, it’s pointless.

marc

Tri Rail or whoever is running that ROW only needs platforms, not stations at every spot. Not much space needed.

About time, been seeing updates about this project for three years now.

This project is located in Beverly Terrace, not Midtown. Come on TNM.
