Photo: Construction Progress At Overtown’s Block 55

Overtown’s largest mixed-use project in decades is moving closer to completion, a photo shows.

Across the street, the 36-story Atlantic Station tower is near top off.

The first project is known as Sawyer’s Walk (previously Block 55). It is planned to include:

  • 578 housing units, predominantly for low income seniors
  • 130,000 square feet of office space
  • 175,000 square feet of retail
  • over 1,000 parking spaces

The retail and office space is 100% leased.

Retail tenants will include Target, Aldi, Ross Dress for Less, Five Below, Burlington, and Tropical Smoothie Cafe.

MSC Group has leased all of the office for a headquarters complex, and is investing $100m in the offices.

Arquitectonica is the architect.

SG Holdings, a partnership among Swerdlow Group, SJM Partners, and Alben Duffie, is the developer.

Glad it has an additional target in Miami for the MWC folks can go to instead of the midtown or south beach ones.

Who shops there? We need more Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods and upscale places to shop in central Miami!

This is a model project for a “15 Min City”. Next to Brickell City Centre and Miami World Center, dense projects like this will help take cars off the road. Allowing people to just walk to commerce centers and/or work, instead of driving to a shopping center/office park far away in a suburb.

It’s Dadeland Station combined with a vertical Century Village with the most atrocious architecture. What are you talking about?

Even if I was a broke old age pensioner, I wouldn’t want to live in this hulking pile of clutter that looks like a college dorm.

Will the Ross in the former Burdines/Macys building close? Frankly, that should have been Target, but maybe something better now…

I love that space. I really hope they find a grand use for it and the building across from it on Miami Ave, long term!

They let Overtown grow and prosper before Little Havna, let that sink in.

Sad stuff that the capitol of Cuban Culture is not able to get its act together to grow up like this neighborhood.

Little Havana needs a Metromover in order to grow.

OVER TOWN has a Deeper Older Historical Place in this city than LH. Let this Sink In. OVER TOWN was the Only place that African Americans were Allowed to Live in the time of Segregation in this city. Not even Allowed to walk across the Railroad Tracks to shop downtown. OVER TOWN Had plenty Black Owned Stores and Businesses to Shop. Until I-95 was built and Drugs was introduced to such a Great Community. Now the Original Residents of OVER TOWN are being Priced Out Now that’s SAD !!!
