Photo: Construction At Multiple 65-Story Towers In Park West

Construction of multiple towers in Park West is continuing to progress, a new photo shows.

The 65-story E11even Hotel & Residences is rising in the foreground. It will have 449 condos, 36,852 square feet of commercial space, 2,049 square feet of office space, and four floors of parking garage.

Foundation equipment can be seen doing piling work at the site of the second 65-story tower, called E11even Residences Beyond. It will have 550 condos, along with office, commercial, retail and parking.

In the background, the planned 679-foot Legacy Miami Worldcenter can also be seen.

It’s so funny to me how all of you see all of this construction going on as a some type of game or as a contest about what city is getting nicer, but what nobody realizes is that rent prices are going so high in Miami that I don’t think the working class will be able to make a living in Miami anymore, it’s time to stop looking at all these constructions going on in Miami as a game and start demanding for more affordable apartments to be built, I don’t think Miami is growing in a smart way, this city will be only for the rich if some changes are not made

This city has always been a resort city for the country’s richest folk (and today, the worlds). The local population unfortunately has never been the number one priority.

While i do agree that more affordable housing in the downtown core would be good why is it that the private sector has to take the huge risk and make no money? The county and the city own large amounts of land in the downtown core that should be redeveloped into affordable housing. Government center is a prime example of that and there is some major redevelopment in the works. But look at parts of overtown where the county or city own housing projects that are only two stories when they should be knocked down and turned into much more dense buildings for people to move into.

The smartest way for a city to grow is following comprehensive plans and zoning codes, and letting the free market drive development, not constantly piecemealing policy and handing a developer waiver after waiver, all because they want to build a box with a parking pedestal and call it “iconic.”

For sure!
When I was in the working class waiting tables and bartending, I was inspired by the skyscrapers. So I took the “free” Metromover to the “free” library and starting improving myself and my skill set.

I didn’t demand that other people build me cheap houses, I demanded of myself to level up a few.

This argument about housing is not affordable is at least 5 decades old. The argument is that WE NEED government trains is at least 4 decades old. YET, people continue to move to Miami.

This is the best answer for affordable housing I have ever heard on this site. Props to Sterling Cooper for recognizing that it is the person that must level up to live in a great city, not the city that must level down to meet their affordability demands. The simple truth is that if you can’t live “in” the city because rents are too high, then you must live “outside” the city where it is more affordable. Rent is a function of supply and demand, rents can’t be “too high” if everyone is paying them and apartment buildings continue to fill up. At some point when demand and supply reach equilibrium, rent growth will stop. Until that happens, better start improving our skill sets so we are more valuable employees, get higher paying jobs, and are able to keep up with increases in rents.

Best answer? The “free metromover” is a poor excuse for adequate public transportation that we largely lack in this city and the “free library” has been underfunded and neglected for years, with little attention to providing skills for people to get high-paying jobs.

So, Miami is going to NEED to “level down” to meet people’s affordability demands because we happen to live in a place that disincentivizes academic progress, rewards instagram living, and lacks an intellectual culture. Granted, the city has been LITERALLY designed for tourism, but if you want it to be a “world class” city, then it has to start diversifying its industries. Smart people are not going to move somewhere that rewards dumb people.

Oh, and Sterling, the best cities to ever live ALWAYS have effective public transport, which includes a metro/subway. You know why young/middle-aged people move to Miami? It’s either because their rich and enjoy Florida’s no state income tax or because they’re immigrants from Latin America who are comfortable moving to a place they can depend on family. NOT because it’s even remotely competitive when comparing it to Boston, New York or DC for work and quality of life. At surface level, beach living and the slow-pace looks appealing, but after a year of living here, you hit reality and move back.

Last, but certainly not least, population growth in Dade has stagnated in relation to the rest of the state. I love Miami, but let’s love it right and learn to critique and resolve so it can improve.

Bizarre how you mention trains. Every major city worth anything on the planet has trains. It’s not a left or right political issue, it’s common sense.

Nobody likes sitting in traffic. Actual people who live in Miami, so not investors thousands of miles away, can all agree that the driving in this city is insane. If you enjoy driving around a gigantic oversized truck, then that’s great. You would enjoy it even more if it weren’t bumper to bumper and if people who hate driving in this town actually had viable alternatives and could get off the roads.

Let’s build affordable far from the city core though! Let’s keep Miami’s core for the upper class!

It needs higher zoning throughout more areas of Little Havana, much higher so that there isn’t just one line of tall buildings east of I95

We do NOT want ‘affordable housing’ in the core. We need more market rate developments to balance out the prices. Keep building!

Most of these were vacant lots and parking areas that did absolutely nothing for the community in any way, except be used for shady parking attendants charging people to park there to go to walk to the Arena. So yes, this is an objective upgrade. Nobody was living, working, or doing anything on these sites.

The affordability crisis isn’t really applicable to this, other than I guess being a slap in the face- but the reality is that this prime real estate in the heart of the city was always going to be pricey. Your battle would be better fought in the many sprawling suburbs or adjacent areas covered by warehouses and single family homes. Even then, you’re still seeing a lot of newer upzoned development out there which is smaller in scale and not on the radar of this site. Not nearly enough, but its there. Now whether the infrastructure and traffic can handle it is another story entirely.

Ultimately the city/county leadership ought to be more proactive. But booing or protesting these high end towers isn’t the winning move.

All of the wealthy people want services provided by the middle-class worker (maids, nannies, butlers, chauffeurs, waitresses, trainers, etc.). If people can’t afford to live here, those services will be missing.
