Plans Submitted For First Building At Magic City Innovation District, Designed By Arquitectonica

The developer behind the Magic City Innovation District has submitted plans for their first building.

The name of the new building is Parcel 11.

Parcel 11 is proposed to rise 25 stories, or 284 feet.

According to the submittal, the project will include:

  • 349 residential units
  • 393 parking spaces
  • 13,010 square feet of ground floor retail space

Parcel 11 will sit along Magic City’s “Promenade du Grand Bois,” which is described as a grand, pedestrian-oriented promenade civic space.  Retail space at the new building will open to the promenade. There will also be a pedestrian paseo along another frontage of the new building.

Arquitectonica is the architect.

Miami’s Urban Development Review Board is scheduled to review the proposal at a meeting on November 17.

At this point I’m convinced that arquitectonica design buildings for half the price as other’s! The goal to build in Miami is to build as cheap as possible and charge outrageous prices!

Miami start to loose their unique character that had with all these neutral retail ground floor spaces. I hope to don’t get foot in mimo district.

Needs more parking! Where is everyone going to park?!

They should build thousands more spaces!! Don’t build any housing, just a tall building with parking.

^^^ the above is what the neighbors want as they whined while this project was approved.

The first building is already on the proposal and that’s at the mixed used development near my dad‘s house, which is almost about to takeoff. I guarantee you there’s going to be more plans submitted for more buildings at this innovation district.

Impressive modern design. Looks like a strong statement for the first building in Little Haiti.

The area is Little River AKA Lemon City. Using the Little Haiti name just scares away tenants and investors. (You realize Haitians just murdered their President in his bedroom and no one was indicted…)

Go ahead. Have any Latin American Presidents been murdered in their bedrooms? Did you know the US Government recommends travelers avoid Haiti?

The Haiti name lowers property values. The speculators were warned.

If the idiot developers would stop using the name Little Haiti they could get 20% more rent.

I just don’t get the mural.
Why is it not the same design from the top of the building brought all the way to the bottom?
Doesn’t make any sense.

Promenade and Paseo sure get thrown around a lot in new Miami Construction. Paris or Madrid? It’s getting old. Arquitectonica needs to let go.

The neighborhood is actually Little River. Too bad the design is so bad. Miami deserves better.

None. Disgraced commissioner Keon “Pay to Play” Hardemon allowed the developers to remove all the affordable housing units.

The developers/promoters are crazy to keep mentioning Haiti and Little Haiti. The Haiti name scares people, including tenants. Even the US Government advises people NOT to travel to Haiti.

I think they go to great lengths to design such an ugly building. The innovation district is getting off to a bad start. With that building, I could change the name of the region to the retrogression district. Unfortunate.

Very ugly design… Arquitectonica needs to hire better architects. By the way, the planner dude at the City, Jeremy, used to work for Arquitectonica.
