Revealed: 35-Story Hotel & Residential Tower Planned At 3200 Biscayne

Plans have been filed to build a hotel and residential tower in Edgewater.

3200 Biscayne is planned to rise 396 feet and include:

  • 110 residential units
  • 160 lodging units
  • 8,443 square feet of commercial area (ground floor restaurant, bar/coffee space, and retail)
  • 6,531 square foot ballroom and 6,567 pre-function space on level 2
  • 383 parking spaces on five levels (above the 293 parking spaces required by zoning)

Seven minor Miami 21 zoning waivers are being requested.

Arquitectonica is the architect.

Green Circle Development, LLC is the developer. Urbanica Management is listed as the registered agent for the company.

Miami’s Urban Development Review Board is scheduled to have a hearing on the proposal on March 20.

It’s so shortsighted to allow development like this above core without transit on a federal highway

Can you please explain why?

Are all the kids going to die?
Is there an “existential threat” to all life forms?
Will the United States loose it’s place as the richest country on planet earth if this building is built on 32nd Street and Biscayne Blvd?

Wait…..there IS transit on Biscayne Blvd.
There ARE dozens of busses running north and south along Biscayne Blvd right now!
The busses have been running from the north end of Biscayne Blvd to the South end non-stop 24 hours a day for quite some time.

Does that mean that developing this building is farsighted, not shortsighted?

Or does it mean that you really are not thinking deeply.

People in these buildings don’t bother with the bus—it’s not convenient or what they’re after. What if we put these places near metro stations instead? Seems like the free market should decide, but it’s not so free when the government only boosts certain spots, promising us boulevards when they know full well they’re just making highways that’ll just need to get bigger or even go double-decker. It’s odd how our taxes are making some areas fancy while leaving awesome spots by metro stations and the Miami River, like Riverside, untouched. If we focused on these neglected areas, we could have cool places to walk around, without the need for more huge highways because of poor planning. Let’s get smart with our city’s money and create spots where people really want to be.

It looks like a car dealership on the bottom. At least it’ll fit in with the other buildings there. Maybe there will be cool cars to see at least.

I’m undecided about the retro 70s vibe this building gives off to me, but at least it looks different from everything else. I feel bad for the little Beverly Terrace apartment building.

If the UDRB actually does their job, they will recommend denial or approval with conditions it’s redesigned to better respect a historically designated building.

That is the Miami Modern vibe.

Edgewater should remain historical. Keep it low key, with its charm.

I like the tower. It has a 70’s retro vibe to it. The parking garage is an unfortunate afterthought.

I think it has a 1950s Havana (Habana Hilton, Riviera Hotel) reto vibe.

Brasilia vibes… the ground level arches are nice, but its scale on the garage is too big… dont think it will look nice once its done

Should be neither, and pay architectural homage to one of Miami’s finest surviving apartment houses next door instead.

The lower floors architecture, has the look of the STANDARD ON Belle isle. Near 17th street on the beach. Cool old Miami look.

Loving the retro Bauhaus vibe of this building, it is a very refreshing addition to the cityscape. Love this!

I’m confused by that podium – it’s a solid stucco wall.

Is it not required to be perforated…? Artistic treatment?

I think the scalloped embellishments count as the artistic treatment. It would probably be classified as a relief.

Hopefully those architectural details on the facade are fabricated stone or precast products. Having a contractor attempt to create those details using concrete block and stucco would look terrible.

Well, I’ll take that parking podium over other crap Arquitectonica has done, especially as it relates to the historic apartment house. Still, bleh tower with the only worthy merit being the motif at the top.

This should be in Brickell or Downtown, too dense and nice for edgewater

The deeper balconies with the column post in the corners is better than the average small balcony condo. The drip edge is also a nice luxury touch that might afford better weathering.

Ironically this is where US1 Biscayne comes to standstill most of the day. Increase in Brightline and Trirail diesel trains paralyze the streets at this location. Also northbound traffic jam in the pm hours can stretch for 20 blocks already. The metrobus here is always full and sits in this traffic too. I had to ask the driver to let me off a few times cause it’s faster to walk along Biscayne or 36th st. But it’s an ugly walk along idling vehicles and diesel trains blaring horns that leave you deaf for a moment. Btw, cars coming from the airport can no longer exist at Miami Ave from 112 hwy so they end HERE TOO! THIS IS THE FIRST AND LAST EXIT for airport traffic on the mainland after i95.. its already a major choke point..

Can we rename Biscayne Blvd to Lifeless Podium Blvd?

It has a name US Highway ONE, can they make it two levels already so pedestrians can walk earier below it and cars won’t be backed up all the way up to the 365 exit/entrance ramp everyday.

I don’t think the people living in the Mediterranean style condos or apartments are going to like their new neighbor.

And a lot more cars on an already busy Biscayne Blvd – the traffic light on NE 36 street is already a nightmare.
