Photos: Chicago Developers Top Off 447-Unit Midtown 6

The Midtown 6 apartment tower recently topped off at 32 stories.

Chicago developer Magellan Development Group teamed with a Chicago architect BKL Architecture on the new development.

It will include:

  • 447 apartments
  • 40,000 square feet of ground floor retail
  • 601 parking spaces

A grocery store is planned in the retail space, which will be part of a four story podium clad in local coral limestone.

Magellan also succesfully completed the Midtown 5 tower next door, and has plans for another tower, Midtown 7.

Midtown needs bike lanes.

And you bike people need to give it a rest.

I will after you slow the F down.

Slow down for what? Cars were driving around in this area before you decided to ride your bike around and act like people driving cars should now YIELD to YOU!

They’re not called streets because they were built for cars.

I meant – “built for bikes.”

Horses were on those roads before car so according to your logic, if I hop on a horse they you would finally slow down and shut up?

If you hopped on a horse and rode down the streets of Miami then yeah, people would shut up and slow down if they see you jumping off the horse and quickly cleaning up horse dung.

There is so much stupidity here to unwrap…

Again…don’t bother. The bike generation can’t afford nice cars so they don’t want you to have one either.

Ridiculous reply.

Don’t bother. These are the Uber millinials with the minimum wage jobs who can’t afford a nice car. Look how quickly he lost it and told you to F down.

Better than looking at another empty lot in that area.

I am sooo sick and tired of hearing that dumb remark: “Better than looking at another empty lot in that area”. The point should be that the city ought to be demanding better architecture period!. The city will be stuck with these ugly structures for the next 50 yesrs when all the vacant lots will be lost to buildings like this. We will then resemble Columbia.

“The point should be that the city ought to be demanding better architecture period!.”

First of all, here’s a quick bit information for you. When you end a sentence with an exclamation point, there is no need to also use a period.

Now, I’ll assume that you’re not from the city of Miami, because if you were, you would know how long this area has sat with vacant lots everywhere. Only a “whinebaby” who wants everything his/her way and won’t take a dime of their own money doesn’t appreciate some developers taking their money and developing a wasteland that we’ve been looking at for decades. People who’re going to rent these units aren’t bellyaching about how this or the rest of these buildings look so take that petty boohooing of yours somewhere else.

My sister was the architect on both Midtown 5 and 6. I think she did an amazing job. So until you have the money or skills to invest in something different, stop complaining. The need is great for apartments in this area and they will have no problems filling these units.

Colombia.. learn to spell.

The cladding and subtle curves make up for it. At least it’s not another monstrosity like Midtown 29.

Beautiful design. Hope they use nice railings to match the upscale…

Boy this area is really starting to look like Hudson Yards! Miami winning!

Hudson Yards!!?? Are you for real?

Did you miss my sarcasm again?

Surely there must be some buzz about potential grocery store tenants. Seems like Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s would both be trying to get into this fast growing trendy and upscale area of DD, Wynwood,and north part of Edgewater. Closet stores now are the crappy Bay Point Publix and the better Omni one.
