Revealed: 53-Story Hotel & Residential Tower Planned On Biscayne Boulevard

The owner of a lot at 1775 Biscayne Boulevard has submitted a proposal to build a 53-story, 633-foot tall tower.

In total, the proposal includes 1.22 million square feet of mixed-use space, including a significant retail component:

  • 444 residential units
  • 200 hotel rooms
  • 45,600 square feet of retail/restaurant
  • 64,800 square feet of office
  • 546 car / 39 bicycle parking spaces

A hotel lobby, restaurant, and amenity deck will be located on level 9. A separate amenity deck for the residences will be located on the rooftop (so no rooftop lounge open to the public).

Six waivers are being requested, including a 30% parking reduction, residential floor plate increase, driveway width reduction, and an increase in lot coverage from the 80% permitted to 88%.

Kobi Karp is the project architect. V Downtown Inc., managed by Barry J. Silverman and Judy Silverman, is the developer.

Melo Group is currently using the land as a staging area for the Aria on the Bay condo project, which is nearly complete.

The proposal is set to be reviewed by Miami’s Urban Development Review Board on November 29, and will likely be the last big project voted on by the board in 2017.
