Related Group Proposes The District, A 37-Story Residential & Hotel Tower In Downtown Miami (With No Parking)

A new 37-story downtown mixed-use tower called The District is being planned by one of Miami’s top developers, Related Group.

The District will include 343 residential units – but no parking spaces.

Amenities will include a gym, basketball court, racquetball court, pool, spa, BBQ area, and a lounge with a cafe.

At the ground floor will be retail, lobby, and a mail room.

The building height is planned to reach 394 feet above ground.

Units will be relatively small if used as residential, but large if used for hotel. Sizes start at 446 square feet and range up to 874 square feet, with each unit having a kitchen.

Sieger Suarez is the architect. In a description of the design, the developer wrote that “the subtle curve of the tower creates a dynamic simplicity in its appearance.”

Miami’s Urban Development Review Board will have a hearing on the project this Wednesday.

Related acquired the property in 2019 for $8.77 million. Shortly after the acquisition, the developer said that they planned micro-condo units for the site.

Almost can’t believe this is from Related. No parking? No balconies? And sleek design? FINALLY.

A really good looking tower and I agree with the other commenter who noted that this product type is surprising coming from related. Balconies need to be excluded more often…

No they don’t! Nobody wants a unit in beautiful downtown Miami without a balcony. That’s for Section 8/Plana Ochoa units in da hood/barrio.

I’d rather more interior floor space then a balcony that’s going to stay empty year round apart from two little plastic chairs I’ll never sit on…..

That’s you…most Floridians use their balconies to enjoy the great weather and scenery.

Why exclude balconies, other than to try fooling visitors into thinking downtown’s skyline is like only 20% office towers?

Well, it all comes to options, right? Do you like balconies? Go look somewhere else. Cant live without a garage? Go look somewhere else. People think differently and we should have options for every taste. Hope it gets built.

A sleek looking tower. I wish it will be taller though.

Having a few residential developments here and there without balconies isn’t a bad thing, it adds flavor and choices to shoppers. Besides theres always the ample outdoor amenity space for when you want to enjoy the heat and humidity.

No balconies, no parking, no buyers

The 15 MDC Arch students on this site giving 28 downvotes aren’t real buyers

I’m so glad they put the pool on the sunset side of the building.

“the subtle curve of the tower creates a dynamic simplicity in its appearance.” dynamic simplicity?!?! I call it architectural laziness.

The curve helps it address the street corner with more sophistication, softening the edge from the pedestrian perspective.

This building should be in Midtown or Dadeland, Downtown Miami should have higger buildings, more “iconic” ones that diffenrenciate the city from any other in the country. Nothing againts the building itself, just the location.

One thing is for sure, this tower will definitely help increase hotel room capacity for if and when that American dream Megamall gets built. There’s no balcony. It looks like it’s on the river and there is a little bit of a view of Biscayne Bayand Bayfront Park in Downtown Miami. It’s also very close to Miami Worldcenter. If construction starts in 2021, it would be completed in either 2023 or 2024. If they use pre-fabricated construction, maybe they can get it done much faster by A timeframe between late 2021 and mid 2022. Solar power please.

What does a mall in the suburbs 20 miles away have anything to do with this building?
