Proposal To Build 428 Foot Nema Miami Apartment Tower Submitted Near Midtown Miami, Designed By Arquitectonica

Developer Crescent Heights appears to be planning a new apartment tower called Nema Miami, according to an application filed with the Federal Aviation Administration.

The FAA application was filed on January 29.

It calls for a tower height of 428 feet above ground, or 441 feet above sea level.

Construction is estimated to begin in January 2021.

The project site is listed as 2900 Biscayne Boulevard in the Edgewater and Midtown Miami area.

Nema is the high-end rental apartment brand for Crescent Heights. There are other Nema buildings in Boston, San Francisco, and Chicago.

Arquitectonica is the architect.

Either the people making this comment are doing it like “shore power” or low IQ when the Tri-Rail link and one station would do the same thing more efficiently for a fraction of the price.

This has nothing to do with low IQ.
Metromover is FREE. Tri-Rail is not. Simple enough?

You’re not in charge of the approval process. So why assume that it won’t happen if you aren’t getting proof from the developers themselves?

Nice looking towers, and in a prime location (Biscayne Blvd.).

Seems interesting the design. I would like this to be built for sure. I like how I have seen some creativity come out in the renderings for the buildings.

The article states, “A rendering of a development on the Crescent Heights website that appears to be for the same property. It isn’t clear if this is the design for Nema,” so hold your horses.

I live in the neighborhood and most of the current buildings are not occupied, no lights on at night. Have to question where are the occupants going to come from. Also, since Aria opened up we need more grocery stores in the neighborhood, Publix on 17th is slammed and cannot find a parking spot. Somebody please build a new grocery store in Midtown.

Wait, if your neighborhood is a ghost town then why would Publix open a new store there?

I also live in this area, and I see a lot of lights on at night when I’m on my balcony. Not 100%, but you’re never going to have 100% of the units with lights on at the same exact time, at least not visibly from outside. There are enough lights on to support a need for more units. Add to that that most demand comes from outside of the US, and developers and realtors don’t care if anyone lives in it; they just care that your cash is green.

Seems like it’s going to occupy the entire block from Biscayne Blvd to NE 2nd Avenue.

That’s a nice looking part of an elevation. It would also be nice to see the street level treatment.

I love the left tower. The one on the right looks like some Melo-tier s**t.

I don’t know why so many people on here love Melo’s crap anyhow. All of his designs look extremely dull and ugly.

If you can out do Melo, then show us. Nothing sat on those empty lots for decades before the Melo Group came along. You had a chance to show us what you can do, why didn’t you?

Because I’m not a developer. But settling with empty lot fillers that look like crap is bogus and you know it.

Hey man, those empty lots all over made that area look bleak, desolate, and scary, especially at night. Unlike you, who just sit there and whine, I applaud the Melo Group for finally doing something on those empty lots.

Open your eyes, Miami has plenty of crappy areas that you can go to and you’ll agree, need to be mowed down and rebuilt.

No, I don’t agree that “crappy” areas need to be mowed down. I would avoid the crappy areas and then life goes on. Just like in any major city, you don’t venture into undesirable neighborhoods. Problem solved.

Because the site reading from architects and designers i would like to propose a idea for down town. Miami as a new city and quit different from other major American cities need a central square as the squares that exist in major European cities and some in latin american. Will give one other approach in the center of city and will be one interesting design experiment. How you think that will be work and if can give more liveness in downtown?

When the right people start investing in Miami
And south Florida wheels start rolling. The elected officials need to start doing their job. This city has too much potential. Miami and south Florida is open for business. Lets go.
