Revealed: 14th Street Tower Proposed At 39 Stories, Will Include Micro-Units

Developer NR Investments has submitted plans to build another tower near their recently completed Canvas condo high rise.

The neighborhood has been branded the Arts & Entertainment District by developers and has also been called the Omni area.

14th Street Tower is proposed to include:

  • 39-stories (440 feet tall)
  • 739,634 square feet of total floor area
  • 543 residential units (including 231 micro-sized units under 400 square feet)
  • 35,128 square feet of office
  • 8,706 square feet of commercial/retail space
  • 452 parking spaces

Workforce housing will be provided, resulting in density bonuses of height and square footage above what zoning would normally allow on the property.

Miami’s Urban Development Review Board is scheduled to review the proposal at a meeting on July 17. Four waivers from Miami 21 are being requested.

Zyscovich is the architect.

I still remember when I first got to Miami in the early 2000’s and lived at the Venetia and needed to get some groceries. I asked a guy right outside of my building and he said there was one 4 blocks west. Innocent me I decided to walk, it was just as the sun was setting, I remember vividly walking by this block and there were literally more than 40 people in the street drinking out of paper bags and high as a kites. I got approached by 2 prostitutes giving me a rundown of their services, starting at 20 bucks. Man, if you had told me then this would be the Art District in just a few years I would asked you what were you smoking? I can only imagine how this area will look by the 2030’s. Good for Miami.

We should actually be thanking NR investments because they were the first to make ivestment in the neighborhood starting with the filling station,they also broke ground on canvas before melo started anything. NR investment is also credited for branding the area as the arts and entertainment district

So Melody isn’t part of this area?

Came in here to say this. Filling Station was first, and Canvas was the first major tower. Then Melo came in with their three. All good stuff for the area.

(And I think Melody is too close to Biscayne and 395 to get credit for this area)

Terrible. Neither NR Investments nor “developers” are responsible for branding the area the Arts & Entertainment District.

What the hell happened to the gorgeous glass tower proposed, now mutated into a commieblock covered in irregular windows and openings mumbo jumbo, especially insulting to the historic fire station? SAD!

Does anyone remember the very first renderings of Brickell City Center? Remember how futuristic they looked with beautiful glass all around? This city has no standards when it comes to architecture, so developers do do whatever they want despite what they promised in their renderings.

Brickell City Center does have glass all around. I look at it nearly every day.

The East Hotel has incredibly designed glass balconies…the best balconies that I’ve seen on an urban hotel.

Priorities are out of wack. Some units will have more space devoted to the car than to people!

There are very little office jobs because there is very little quality office space. Durr!

You have that backwards. Opposite. Totally wrong. Off by 180 degrees.
There isn’t much office space because there are not enough jobs to demand it.

Just about the only asset class in S. Florida that is lagging now is office space in Miami Beach. Likely because most offices like to locate near a critical mass of other offices. Offices construction is booming in Aventura, Coral Gables, and Brickell. Not much office construction in Design District, Miami Beach, A&E District.

No you have it wrong. If quality office space was readily available, companies would consider moving here, bringing with them, jobs.

Directly across the street at the Chapman Project for Homelessness.
But, my guess is, that people will walk one block east to the Metromover stop and go to the CBD or Brickell if they want an office job.

What about Viacom’s 100k + square ft Headquarters and Production Studios?
Nickelodeon, Comedy Central and MTV are all there to focus on programming for audiences in Latin America, Canada and the U.S. Hispanic market.

Additionally, the Ice Palace is in the A&E District, there is plenty of film and video content produced there. The 24 Hour Entertainmnent district is there, and E-eleven-even is there as well.
The PAMM and Frost Science Museum are in that District now.

There is nothing artsy or entertainment in the area. Where are the movies? Art galleries? restaurants?

I’m glad you threw that out there. Art galleries,theaters and restaurants are sorely needed in the area especially on Biscayne. These are the kind of businesses the do-nothing city should be recruiting, while cracking down on crime in the area.

Without a lot of people living in this area, it’s always going to be how it’s been known for a long time, “The Arts & Entertainment Dead and Boring District.”

Neighborhoods are properly named after they’ve become not for what they wish they’d be. This should have been called the abandoned district. Maybe that would have caught on better.

I’m actually waiting for the signature bridge to get done. I think this will definitely transition the area into a more desirable place. The lighting will be stunning
