Project Peach Breaks Ground In Overtown

A groundbreaking ceremony has been held for Overtown’s Project Peach, and construction is underway.

According to a 2021 presentation, the four-story project was estimated to cost $2.6 million. The developer was requesting $1.3 million in financing from the Omni Community Redevelopment Association to help make it happen.

The 2021 filing showed that Project Peach is proposed to include:

  • 600 square feet of ground floor commercial space
  • 2,000 square feet of office on the second floor
  • Three work-live residences (approximately 850 square feet each) on the third and fourth floors
  • A fourth floor rooftop oasis– approximately 900 square feet; including kitchen, storage,
    shaded areas for community and private events
  • Three parking spaces, to be adapted to future retail/commercial use “once transit feasible”

The three residential units were to be income limited in exchange for the $1.3 million in public investment.

Caprock 123, LLC, managed by Laura Weinstein-Berman, is the developer.

Cure & Penabad is the design architect, with Steven L. Cohen & Associates the architect of record.

“Three work-live residences (approximately 850 square feet each) on the third and fourth floors”

Could be a good location for a BDSM dungeon.

Although, I love this project. But $433,333 per unit for affordable housing isn’t a good path for easing the affordable housing shortage. Congrats nonetheless to whom ever gets to live here.

It’s not just three residences, but office and retail space as well. So, no, not $433,333 per unit. And even if it was, that’s still well below median home price for Miami-Dade County of $630k/unit.

All-in that’s actually a great price. Congrats to the team!

Yes please! This area south of Wynwood, Little Havana, and western Edegwater could use more low rise buildings like this. We can actually fill in more of the Urban Core like this

Maybe in West Little Havana, but we need something more to scale with the 70 story buildings right next to little Havana on the river.

Why would it be a joke? There used to be one home – now there will be 3 plus retail. This is gentle density.

We need more walk ups! Little townhouses where we build communities with stores on ground level, so tired of sky rise or squat box

Any area with good zoning will grow now due to the lack of inventory. Congratulations we have inelastic demand. Little Havana meanwhile gets ZERO zoning off Jose Marti Park, the next logical place for expansion of the urban core. BUT NO! THIS GOES IN OFF THE CONSTRUCTION MESS ON THE 836 BEACH INTERCHANGE

Why are people obsessed with Jose Marti park it’s a small park and half of it is under 95. Once there are no more developable lots east of 95 then we can talk about building more west of 95

Everyone complaining about the program/only three units. It’s infill on a single lot that meets zoning by-right. More of this in non-high rise areas like Little Havana/West Grove would make a huge difference.

Instead of waiting around for entire blocks to be bought out for mega-projects, we could have infill like this making a difference immediately while creating a more unique urbanism than large podiums everywhere

This isn’t Georgia, could’ve chosen a better fruit name for this project like Papaya or Mango would’ve gone better.

Those aren’t Florida fruits, it should be an Orange or a watermelon 🍊 🍉

Hate to break it to you but watermelon isn’t a south Florida fruit either. Hardly any oranges grow here either, mostly in central Florida.
