Replat Filed For Historic Church Property At 1836 Biscayne Where Developer Plans 352 Units

Fifteen Group is requesting county approval to replat a property at 1836 Biscayne Boulevard.

The company is proposing to build a 38-story apartment building directly above the historic Christian Science church, with retail inside the former sanctuary.

According to replat submittal, the developer plans 352 residential units and 20,000 square feet of retail. The express purpose of the replat is to vacate a 1,151 square foot alley, which would allow construction to proceed.

Miami-Dade’s plat board will review the proposal on March 10.

The retail that has long overdue is beginning to come to Biscayne.

Very interesting architecture with the tower’s “floating” effect.

We are just 1-2 years away from being a TNBB (Traffic Nightmare Beyond Brickell). Once that happens, Lord Have Mercy!!!! Biscayne in Edgewater by 3:15 is already a nightmare in heat.

Alright Miami, stop all construction and building plans, this “anonymous” is afraid of traffic, so shut everything down.

Shessh!…just move and relocate to a town of only like 10,000 people somewhere, that way you won’t have to worry about more traffic in Miami ruining your life.

What blasphemy! How anyone can destroy such a beautiful and historic church is terrible. Look at the Art Deco being destroyed in this town. Just awful.

Is this a joke? That church is an inactive homeless hangout. Please bring on the development!

Funny Terrapin how most people don’t notice something until someone buys it and wants to do something with it.

Oh, the horror!

A homeless hangout? Then at least put this building to good use, like maybe a soup kitchen or a shelter for those homeless folks.

There are plenty of places to put a soup kitchen. A building like this is not one of them. It’s prime real estate, what sense does it make turning it into a soup kitchen????

I would love to see that anonymous person pay $14.25 million for a building and then turn it into a “SOUP KITCHEN” for the homeless.

Well because some people on here are just dumb to think that way. I hope it gets developed with some good retail. I wish they would open a Whole Foods in Edgewater!

It is a homeless hangout as of now. Please develop it! Those of us who live around the area wouldn’t mind YOU anonymous to turn your building lobby into a homeless soup shelter. How about you propose that to your association?

that “historic” church has been vacant for years and does nothing to enhance the area…the new development will encompass the church and provide new reatil options and housing to help build a vibrant streetlife.

It’s not the building’s fault it has become derelict. Until recently, it’s the neighborhood. It’s that logic why Detroit destroys so many historic buildings just because they’re vacant, while hoping something else is built. Never mind the poor policy in place, which includes our design review board who seems to have no understand of what real architecture is.

I like the idea to preserve the historic structure and incorporate it to the modern building ….. nice mix 🙂 …. will give such an interesting arc

That’s what Trump said about Obamacare, “it’s a total disaster!!” And then Trump said he wanted to keep the parts of Obamacare that works. WTF?!!!…I thought “total” meant “totally everything and anything about it?”

According to Edin, nothing about this project should work.

Certain parts ruin the entire development, including the ugly strips of prison windows that don’t line up and giant parking garage floating over the building.

Who cares, you’re not paying for or going to live in it.
