Publix At 3 MiamiCentral Is Now In Active Permitting Again, After Almost A year

Publix is now once again working on permits to build a supermarket at 3 MiamiCentral, Building Department records show.

Plans were first submitted on December 28, 2017.  They were resubmitted in April 2018, but no activity had taken place since then until now.

A request was made on February 25 to reactivate the permit application, and plans were resubmitted on the same day, records show. It is now in active review as of this week. Two reviewers have already denied the newly revised plans, including Building review on February 26 and Plumbing review on March 1.

According to the application, 37,935 square feet of space is being built out at a cost of $3,319,313. Moss & Associates is listed as the contractor.

I pass 3 Publix every time I go to Trader Joe’s. Downtown doesn’t need another one.

LOL if you don’t like food stores having “dodgy political associations,” grow your own food.

Why does a grocery chain need to run a PAC?

Bc politicians sometimes cave to the angry mob and companies that want to keep society functioning provide politicians with funds that help them get the less crazies out to vote.

Trader Joe’s likes locations with limited parking. Miami Central has plentiful amounts of parking.

It can’t be re-starting construction yet, not when the city told them to go back to the drawing board first.

Only in Miami does a permit application for the largest grocery store in the region take over a year.

The city issued the permit its Publix that is dragging their feet. Per inside scoop at Lakeland, they want to delay as much as they can until more residential opens up as other urban format stores in other markets recently opened are not performing to projections.

Haha that is what I exactly thought, they’re waiting for those two towers above the station to open and a few more apartments.

Publix is a suburban grocery store. The people moving to the urban core are millenials, and they shop at Trader Joe’s.

Apparently you’ve not been to any of the 3 publix within 6 sq blocks of each other in Brickell. All of them are practically more crowded than any Miami Beach nightclub on any day/time of the week.

Publix is ubiquitous and encompasses all demographics. Obviously, you’ve never eaten a Pub Sub.

The person read one article about millennials and think some outliers are the norm. We love publix and their subs.

You boomers and Gen Xers keep making up stuff on what us millennials like. We like publix and their subs. Stop trying to put us in your bubble and they’re plenty of publix’s in Florida that are in the urban core.

This is correct. The lease agreement gave Publix the option to wait until the Park-Line Residential towers hit a certain occupancy. Until then, it wasn’t a worthwhile proposition to begin buildout.

Ah makes sense, thanks for the tidbit. Fair to say I don’t have much faith in the permit process after reading the recent stories.

That makes a lot of sense. As much as they have improved the area I don’t see how it could support a Publix, especially if it’s going to be open later than 6. After dark that area is still full of hookers and drug addicts.

Trader Joe’s feels like an Amish Market or an Etsy page.

Trader Joe’s is like Whole Foods with all the strange bags and boxes of foods…give the familiar like Publix.
