Plans Filed With UDRB For Edgewater Collective, With 1,300 Residential Units

Plans have been submitted to the Urban Development Review Board for a three-tower project called Edgewater Collective.

One of the towers is already rising at 2000 Biscayne, with 420 units under construction in a 36-story building.

Demolition to clear the way for two additional towers at 1900 Biscayne began in May 2022.

Construction permitting for the second phase at 1900 Biscayne is also now underway.

The permit filing at 1900 Biscayne was submitted July 2022, with 872 units planned at that block. Active review of that permit is continuing this month, Building Department records show.

The proposed building height at 1900 Biscayne is 42 stories.

1900 Biscayne will include 1,007 parking spaces in a 9-level garage (reduced by using a 30% transit parking waiver), and ground floor retail.

Another 9-level garage with an unknown number of spaces is also being built at 2000 Biscayne.

Kobi Karp is the architect.

Kushner and PTM Partners are the developers.

The UDRB hearing is scheduled for January 18.

This part of Edgewater really needs this boost in population and activity. The immediate vicinity has been “dead” for too long because of vacant lots and the auto dealership. Hopefully, the retail portion will add some interesting options for the area.

Had Kushner not promoted Opportunity Zones when he worked in the White House these blocks would never have been developed and would probably just have been a lot with 1 crack house.

Carson promoted the Opportunity Zones. Kushner didn’t do anything other than leech and ride the coattails of a successful administration. Sort of reminds me of a certain past VP and his son, who has probably been to that crackhouse.

It’s an opportunity zone? One of many I believe. But there’s no metro, far from the Miami core. Like seeing it grow but at the rate in which infrastructure here can handle.

So sad. Profits over people who need more metro-rich development.

“So sad. Profits over people who need more metro-rich development”

Geeezzzzz… the same comments has appeared on this site over and over and over again. “They need more metro, better infrastructure, the traffic, more parks, greedy developers, yadda yadda yadda… ” Please don’t think that we haven’t read the same things for years and what you say is unique and hasn’t been said before because it isn’t. So sit back and chill. Miami isn’t some utopia ya know.

Housing for people who contribute $100’s of thousands of dollars in property taxes every year.
1,300 apartments contribute more than 15 old houses that were there before.

It takes a certain level of thinking to prefer 15 houses over 1,300 housing units.

what are you smoking, these lots are premium lots and have always had activity, no opportunity to be found here those apartments will go for $2200-$5000 rent a month starting with studios.

That idea isn’t quite right.
Edgewater has always been in the path of progress, or as the DDA puts it, an “Area of Influence”.

OpZone or no OpZone, Edgewater will develop.

While promoting is important, the most important work was done by Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) and Sen. Corey Booker (D-N.J.).

Booker, who was “running for President” famously did not vote for the Opportunity Zone Legislation with his name as co-sponsor.

Sen. Tim Scott rightfully embraces that idea. Opportunity Zones are an incredible concept, with the obvious caveat that Governors designate the boundaries.

Edgewater Traffic Issue
25 days ago

Boring, more traffic and pointless density in an area with no metro. Low zoning could put a pause on Edgewater until areas around metros get finished and metro gets extended here. City urgently needs more metro-accessible development to reduce traffic, condos with water views are abundant already.

You’re not going to get a transit expansion without first having a critical mass of population to use it. Unfortunately.

Brickell Underliner
24 days ago

There’s already a metro in parts of downtown and Brickell without a critical mass population to fully support it.

People will move to downtown and Brickell, especially around the Miami River and Underline, if the City and ancillary agencies provide renovations and work with developers to update infrastructure.

The waterfront isn’t going anywhere (some may argue it’s expanding) and will always be ripe for development, and will be even more valuable than president day, if we manage to enhance around our Miami’s existing and underutilized metros.

What the?...
24 days ago

Stop kidding yourself.. the more they build structures in downtown and Brickell that people can afford, the more people will live in them regardless of how you think the areas are.

Metro Miami

I disagree. I believe people will flee from downtown and Brickell, like NYC, if new areas are not built with quality designs and improvements to public infrastructure.

This is the one part of Miami that can continue to support the growth in high end luxury designs stemming from Brickell, over any other area without metros, because it has the infrastructure for it

Anon

It’s not an affordability issue. It’s a quantity and quality issue. Build more quality luxury downtown and around Brickell, and city can step up its roadway, landscaping, security cellular outposts, and public amenities, and Brickell and prices will stabilize or continue to go up and be filled.

Suggestions for Brickell Updates
20 days ago

Yes! We should accelerate dropping the ugly and dangerous telephone lines on Brickell blocks around the Underline and add a few roundabouts to slow and bring order to traffic near new Brickell World middle school on 10th Street, for the aesthetic and safety of children.

Not this design for Brickell, just some elements and more high end new housing. This needs some work UDRB.

Are you ready to pay more for an apartment in a (what you would call) swanky looking building?

“We”?
You deserve what you build, or what you can exchange what you build in the free market.

Unfortunately, entitled keyboard stokers, do not command much.

From a distance, it reminds me of a vertical Hong Kong slum with stuff hanging out of windows.

Anything west of Biscayne Blvd there is a plus as well! Just fill in all of the vacant lot’s and add better public transit!

Same old ring of balconies. It’s like these mofos have no clue how to be creative or create clean lines on a facade even if you need to provide for balconies. Just the same old tired look rinsed and repeated over and over and over and over and…

I like that in these new renders the all ready under construction building at 2000 is more similarly designed to the other two on 1900. In prior renders they looked completely unrelated. This has a much more finished and cohesive look.

It’s actually a beautiful project. The density added to the area is welcome. I hope all the vacant lots and boarded up places are filled soon as well.

There are some people in Miami who’re going to complain no matter what (because they haven’t invested a dime in the project).

A city is filled with lots of ideas. Nice to see people sharing them. l have seen Miami grow over decades and every day I’m more impressed than the next.

Those parking podiums really kill the vibe. They should be lined with apartments on the outside or better yet, underground.
