Revealed: 32-Story Paraiso Place Planned In Edgewater With 279 Apartments

In Edgewater, the owner of a property has submitted plans to build a residential project called Paraiso Place.

Since the project is large-scale, it will need to be reviewed by Miami’s Urban Development Review Board. A hearing before the board is scheduled for November 20. Here are the details that have been submitted for review:

Project

The tower will rise 32 stories, or 373 feet above ground.

It will include 279 residential units. A letter from the applicant hints they will be rental apartments.

A parking garage will include about 300 spaces, which is below what is required by zoning. A waiver for 30% reduction in zoning requirements is being requested.

At the ground floor, there will be 4,063 square feet of retail space.

Urban experience

The developer says that Paraiso Place ” brings a conscious approach to scale, urbanism and connectivity of people to place.”

 

A pedestrian promenade will be built along NE 31st Street as part of the project, including landscaping and street furniture, in a design that will encourage pedestrians to walk from Biscayne Boulevard to the Paraiso District.

 

The facade will be lined with residential units on the north side.

A parking garage will have a metal louver screen covered in geometric artwork by Miami-born artist Johnny Robles, with a design that is reminiscent of a sunset.

 Owner and Development Team

The owner is Metro Edgwater LLC, managed by Carlos Ortiz. A letter from his attorney states that he is based in Miami and has 27 years of real estate experience in Colombia and the US, participating in the construction over 3,600 residential units, mostly in urban core neighborhoods.

The lead architect is Pablo Burgos of Burgos Lanza Architects & Planners. Landscape architecture is by James Socash, and Fortis Design + Build led by Principal David Polinsky is also part of the team.

Location

The Project Site is directly to the west of Gran Paraiso Residences.

Several parcels totaling 1.92 Acres have been assembled at 433-449 NE 30th Terrace and 430-452 NE 31 st Street. One building on the site will be demolished, while another will remain.

In my old firm when we had renders done they would normally be by companies in Eastern Europe. Great price and always did a great job.
But we kept running into the issue that all the people in the renderings were very white with blond hair.
We’d always ask for a more diverse group of people in the rendering and they normally respond with basically same people with black hair. lol
when we’d specifically request adding different ethnicities etc they would say that’s all they had.
Good to see some rendering companies adding more diversity.

Glad to see the request for parking reduction. Even with all the work done to the podium it’s still a blank wall.

Edgewater needs less cars period.

With all the things to talk about concerning this project you wanna talk about parking….

Geezzusss will you parking nuts give it a rest!!!

The developer even submitted the waiver for it, its the City zoning that is forcing parking on every development.

I don’t know why the city is still enforcing parking minimum restrictions. It is an oxymoron when the goal is to pedestrianize the downtown area. One hand obviously does not know what the other wants

because everyone here owns a car and wants a place to park?

dude give it a rest… Miami will never be like new york city.

Right!!! The lingo they use, so obvious they are trying to convey something that is not there.

You need to create your own job instead of waiting for someone to create it for you.

Um, I think any name that sounds like “Paraiso” has been worn out!

I’m just glad they are demolishing that building. Some sketchy people are always hanging around outside it.

Reduction in parking and wide sidewalks. They must read the comments on this site.

Every person that come on this site and complain about too much parking being built somewhere owns a vehicle, be it car, truck, SUV, or motorcycle and you better believe where ever they live, they have a parking spot.

While it’s a boring filler, it does have some decent street interaction by Edgewater standards, and I stress the words “decent” and “Edgewater standards.” It it could be far worse.

Excellent!! It helps obscure views of Paraiso.

No planning?

Traffic! Narrow streets! Does anyone do their homework?

There you go another “signature” building. Can you guess the design?

people cant even sell the 1300 places at paraiso already. this is crazy

Um, without the water views, why would you want to live right there? There is nothing to walk to (except Amara) and the seawall. I truly don’t get the appeal of this area at this stage.

Anonymous

Over blown because it’s close ( for Miami standard) to Wynwood and midtown

Traffic much?

Tough location. Traffic nightmare. Even uber drivers will get pissed off.

Sorry that you and Uber drivers live in a constantly changing and growing city and don’t receive all the convenience that you think you should always have.

No water views, no Paraiso amenities, this Colombian developer just waited until Related’s buildings were sold out to launch a much less appealing project aimed at confusing foreign buyers with the “Paraiso” name. Proof of how gullible buyers are will be in the sales. Edgewater still has its rough spots once you’re off the bay. Extension of the metro rail north along NE 1st Ave might ultimately benefit commuting from this neighborhood some years down the road. Biscayne Blvd can sometimes be a parking lot.

Do they get access to Paraiso amenities?

Anonymous

yes of course and concierge service as well.

Land locked.

Of course NOT. Different developers.
