Permitting Underway For 1,400-Units To Be Built Above S&S Diner

Israeli developer ASRR is working on approvals for a 1,400-unit apartment project in Miami’s urban core.

In 2017 the developer purchased the former S&S Diner property and surrounding land for $36 million. CNMB International of China and G-Resources of Hong Kong each owned one-third, but were trying to sell their stakes last summer.

At the time, the developer said they were planning 1,200 rental apartment units, along with 500 hotel rooms and 350,000 square feet of office space.

Now, it appears the developer wants to increase the apartment count.

On January 26, ASRR is scheduled to appear before a Miami-Dade’s Committee to replat the property. According to the platting documents, the project will include 1,400 apartments.

The 1-story S&S Diner building will not be demolished, the documents state. The remainder of the block will be demolished or is already vacant.

They’ve reopened at Biscayne & 27th. Same great food & waitresses, but I miss the old counter.

The new location is not the same. And it’s because of the counter. And the ultra nice waitresses that worked there forever.

Don’t know how great the waitresses are. Live on the same block and was ecstatic when it reopened. Went the first weekend and waited more than half an hour without even being addressed by the waitresses; they literally walked through us. Haven’t been back since.

Dude! How old are you? Jordan Marsh, really? My grandfather used to talk about that place and he passed away in 1997!

Yo man, people get old, if their lucky. A lot of places won’t exist anymore when and if you’re lucky enough to get to your grandfather’s age.

S&S Diner is on 27th and Biscayne, so the headline is a bit confusing

I am glad developers are starting to appreciate Miami’s past by preserving and incorporation historic structures in their developments.

The diner was torn down some years back, which was unfortunate because it was actually was designated historic by the city. Maybe the facade will be reproduced or was preserved for new construction? Hopefully it won’t be like the cluttered incompatible monstrosity at 2500 Biscayne Boulevard.
