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:
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.
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.
