Residential Building With 427 Units Planned Near Metromover Station

A utilities deal has just been signed that will allow a residential building to be built a few blocks north of the Signature Bridge at 1550 NE Miami Place.

The agreement between Miami-Dade’s Water & Sewer Department and CL RE 15 MIA LLC was recorded on December 28, 2022.

A total of 427 apartments are planned, the agreement states.

Jennifer Bernell signed on behalf of the LLC.

Clearline Real Estate purchased the 37,252 square-foot development site for $19.75 million, according to a May 2022 press release.

Melo’s 37-story, 425-unit Miami Plaza apartment tower is next door. The School Board Metromover station is 1,000 feet away.

Colliers’ Executive Managing Director Mika Mattingly and Senior Associate Cecilia Estevez represented the seller in the transaction.

Clearline was founded by Bernell, who is a former executive at Kushner.

Happy with almost anything proposed in this area…. It’s been a sea of parking lots for over 30 years…..

And after all these parking lots disappear (no doubt that eventually not even an inch square will be left undeveloped) …where are the people going to a game or see an opera or attend an art show going to park ?

Most would like to say public transit or rideshare but we all know they’re not efficient enough to support these events. That’s why it’s important to build additional parking not just enough for residents but for the public as well. I’m sure with more development comes more commercial and retail components that require additional parking. So if we don’t want grid locked roads and overcrowded grade D public transit systems build more parking! PS once our public transit systems were up to par we can transform the parking into something else (there’s plenty implications of this already happening in other cities)

Happy to see this area coming together but honestly it has taken far too long. How many of these parking lots could be temporary parks for kids to play baseball? There are literally dozens of acres of asphalt in this immediate area – projects can’t come soon enough to this blighted part of town!

There’s a baseball diamond at Dorsey Park, and temporarily turning these into recreation areas for kids will be all fun and games until little Johnny is pricked with an AIDS needle.

Good more infill for a area with plenty of lots, I live the drive in movies next door but it needs to be apartments as well.

“but it needs” Why?? I love to see space between buildings. We don’t need to build on every lots. What a silly vision 🙄

Let me guess, you want a park and Metromover stop every other block.

Just think.. even with what they’re planning on building there now on this sea of emptiness, still doesn’t even put a dent on what can or could be built.

Transit ridership is still abysmally low since pre-covid. And more so yet since its peaks back in 2008 and 2014.

Isn’t there already construction on this lot? or am I thinking of somewhere else?

Now, how in the world would anyone know what you’re thinking?

“Uni” is under construction on the lot directly north of Canvas

Will it cover Melo’s cluttered-balcony box with a hideous parking pedestal?

Hopefully it won’t be another Melo’s “copy & paste” cheap design . Simply hideous.
