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.

As someone who used to live in Opera tower… This is perfect and MUCH needed for the neighborhood. That 3 block area is super sketchy at night and this will greatly help

I completely agree I used to live at The Grand and feel the same way. This lot is in a great location, right in front of Publix. I also like the design, not your typical rectangle box. Hope it gets built.

Yeah, except it’s a pig with lipstick box covered in ugly alternating protrusions that looks like sound bars on a Hi-Fi.

Building up Edgewater along Biscayne Blvd is necessary.. the area from MiamiWorldCenter to the Design District is due for major development in the coming 5-10 years. Will totally look and feel different than today.

Don’t get all excited. The owner of this lot is just a land banker. He is not a developer nor has the expertise. This greedy guy tried to sell this lot to Genting for an enormous amount which the Genting rejected. I do not believe this guy one bit. He is just using the rendering to sell the land.

Anything to block the ugly blank wall that the tower left. I think the sidewalks should be a bit wider though, this area has foot traffic from the publix.

It’s developable land behind Bay Park Plaza. Maybe for a second tower? The owner Aimco is expanding the Yacht Club at Brickell.

Its nice, but unless the owner is a true developer this is just to get someone to purchase the lot.

Surprisingly low amount of parking spaces for so many units and uses. The bike spaces are a nice touch, does anyone know if they tend to be deep inside garages or near the street? I never end up using the bike parking at many buildings because they bury it inside as if they were cars. Thanks I’ll lock to a street sign.

Baby Suárez, can you please help get a damn streetcar up Biscayne, at least to the city limits??

I’m a fan of rail done right. But a streetcar that shares traffic lanes is just a bus that can’t turn or go around obstacles. Giving it a dedicated right of way would reduce cars to one lane each direction on Biscayne.

A streetcar is much higher capacity than a bus and also shows long-term commitment to serving an area with transit vs a bus which can have it’s route changed and or terminated.

Also, more people are comfortable taking streetcars and trains because the social stigma associated with buses.
