Photos: 5,000 New Apartments In Midtown Miami Area Completed Since 2015, Including AMLI

Photos show the recently completed AMLI residential complex in Midtown Miami – and the growth of the surrounding area.

Developers have now completed at least 5,000 apartments in the immediate area of Midtown Miami since 2015 alone – and many more just a short distance away.

AMLI’s apartment buildings include 719 apartments.

The buildings were height limited to just eight stories as part of an agreement with Midtown Miami’s master developer, in order to preserve views for buildings to the west.

AMLI is now moving forward with construction of their next apartment complex in nearby Wynwood.

Here is a count of all the new Midtown Miami-area residential units visible in the photos below. Only units built since 2015 have been counted:

  • Gio – 447 apartments
  • AMLI – 719 apartments
  • Yard 8 – 387 apartments
  • Midtown 29 – 309 apartments
  • Icon Bay – 300 condos
  • Paraiso Bay – 1,341 condos
  • Midtown 5 – 400 apartments
  • Hyde Midtown – 470 condos/condo-hotel
  • Blu27 at Edgewater – 330 apartments
  • Missoni Baia – 249 condos (under construction)

The total is 4,952 residential units. That excludes those in the distance, such as in downtown Miami.

Also upcoming for the area are projects like Midtown 7, with 391 apartments, and Nema, with 828 apartments.

The Midtown Miami land was formerly the Buena Vista rail yard, while the AMLI project sits on the former Chiquita Banana distribution facility.

Which metromover? In miami we use uber even for 2 blocks distance.

Meanwhile on Earth, it’s right next to an existing set of tracks perfect for a Coastal Link station turning this into a TOD at a fraction of the price, and without destroying streetscapes with a giant flyover so you can have your free electric shortbus.

dude no one in miami takes it and this would have had to have been planned long before – you don’t just put a train over public land without eminent domain and planning.

I think the Almi project turned out very nice. Great way to fill in that space and spruce up NE 2nd.

The only thing i wish for this area is a more spread of height. We need a 500 footer around NW 2 and Miami Ave just two would add to the skyline

It makes no sense financially or resource-wise when there’s already railroad. What are you going to propose next, that the Metromover go above the FEC line? Oh yeah, another brainlet suggested that, or was it you?

would like to see (for once) that they take two of those 6 story buildings and make one single 12 story building and use the space for the first building into a park with trees.

AirBnB in trendy neighborhood developments brings a crowd worse than a casino crowd. That’s 485 Brickell in the W Hotel Tower. Could easily see the same thing in or near Wynwood. You do not want a permanent residence in such a building.
