Retail & Restaurant Building Planned At Worldcenter’s 7th Street Promenade

Miami Worldcenter’s 7th Street Promenade is now open, and the developers of the project have submitted plans for a building that will line the north side of the pedestrian street.

Nichols, Brosch, Wurst, Wolfe & Associates designed the three story, 75,268 square foot building at 711 North Miami Avenue with an iconic aluminum screening treatment, according to a proposal package submitted to the city.

A letter from the developer’s attorney states that 7th Street Promenade will be a “lively pedestrian corridor.” The proposal is the first phase of Block E, which will eventually include a much larger development.

The ground floor will include small-scale retail shops, restaurants, and a breezeway to facilitate pedestrian access to the 7th Street Promenade, the letter states. The second and third floor includes a flexible office component, as well as additional second floor indoor/outdoor dining space. The Project’s rooftop will include an open-air amenity deck.

Miami’s Planning & Zoning Department began review of the building last fall. Comments included a request to provide parking since none is shown on the plans.

Separately, another retail building is planned across the street at 700 Northeast 2nd Avenue. Construction permitting began last fall and the developer is actively working towards approval with building department officials as of this week.

The 700 Northeast 2nd Avenue building will also rise three stories. It will include 135,208 square feet of space, with a construction cost of $23,661,400 (plans are not shown below).

Time for a wholesale revamp of Miami’s planning dept.

Amen! It took them 6 months to review something this simple?

Awful. This article was posted yesterday about it-

Tech will help but I suspect this is part of a bigger problem – the upside down local government culture.

With all the garages they are building do they really need more parking for this relatively small building?

Smart to get this phase started in order to activate the pedestrian street.

Okay, I’ll start… “look at the lack of shade that those palm trees are providing to the table umbrellas…” “And why is the Miami’s Planning & Zoning Department so concerned about parking when this will already be near a bigass parking structure?”

There.. hope that’s enough.

It would nicer in Wynwood. It’s too short for the area. Even the parking garages are taller than this building.

Agree
Much needed density.
Plus it’s downtown
Wider sidewalk
Less parking
Canopied building

Mixing in some low rises into a high rise mega project like MWC can make it more inviting for people. Rockefeller Center in NYC is a great example of that.

Hard to explain to some of the numbnuts here that height isn’t everything.

I’m sure many comments were made but the writer added the note on parking to tick you all off.

Hey guys, the canopy trees were omitted in the rendering just for clarity so you could see this 2-story building and avoid seeing it through a bunch of branches.

Um, the building would be three stories tall.

Or maybe the renderings are accurate and you’ll just hate the final product.
