Related Group Proposes The Gallery On The River, With 160 Units Across From Garcia’s & Seaspice

Related Group wants to build an apartment project called The Gallery On The River on land owned by Miami-Dade county.

The project is proposed to include 160 units, of which 11 will be for public housing.

The 1.6-acre site is at 401 NW North River Drive, across from the popular Garcia’s Seafood restaurant on the Miami River.

Related is proposing to pay just $40,000 per year in rent for the property over 75 years, along with a one time payment of $400,000 and annual 4% increases.

Jack Orr Plaza, a 12-story elderly and disabled public housing building, is on adjacent property. Related was awarded that project earlier.

The Miami-Dade Housing, Social Services & Economic Dev. Committee is scheduled to vote on the lease at a September 9 meeting.

Why are we giving land to developers for basically free? This should be such a no but given related clutches on this city it wouldn’t surprise me.

Plus no property tax since it’s government land.

First of all, the land isn’t given away for free; it is leased from the county. If developers had to purchase land outright to ONLY construct affordable units, it would make no financial sense. They might as well be non-profits at that point.

Secondly, the issue isn’t Related’s “clutch” on the city, it is the city’s income inequality and drastic need for affordable housing. Related just happens to be one of the few competent developers in the industry.

Sincerely,
An informed citizen

I love the vintage late 1970s North Miami Beach Look. I hope they put linoleum floors, popcorn ceilings, vertical blinds, and 54″ long fluorescent lights between the top of the cabinets and the kitchen ceiling.

Land is worth between $4 and $5 million. Rent to city should be triple what’s proposed. Where’s the competitive bidding? The city has a loophole a mile wide for these leases that will continue to be exploited until the voters rebel. Cheers.

Oh lord, it really shows you the intellegence and actual knowledge of Miami people have on TNM when they can’t even read captions that it’s the existing building, let alone never saw it.

How about some additional parkland? It’s county owned land and should not be rented out in per pituitary to a developer.
