Revealed: Downtown Miami’s The Wharf To Be Rebuilt & Expanded In $185M Plan

Developers MV Real Estate Holdings and Driftwood Capital have announced plans for a $185M entertainment district called Riverside Wharf in Downtown Miami.

Riverside Wharf will rise on the current site of the Wharf Miami. When construction is complete, an expanded version of the Wharf Miami will be integrated into the new complex.

Two towers are proposed to rise 10 stories each. In total, there will be 200,000 square feet of new development.

“Riverside Wharf will be a destination for entertainment unlike any Miami has seen,” said Alex Mantecon of MV Real Estate Holdings. “We are excited to finally bring to fruition the dream and vision Miami has had for its riverfront entertainment district which until now has historically sat vacant and underutilized.”

The new Riverside Wharf is proposed to include:

  • Dream Miami luxury hotel with 165 keys
  • An expanded version of The Wharf Miami
  • 16,000 square feet of restaurants
  • Indoor live performance venue
  • 12,000-square-foot event hall
  • “World-class” 30,000-square-foot nightclub and rooftop dayclub with two pools
  • Private marina capable of accommodating megayachts
  • Garcia’s Fish Market pop-up
  • Publicly accessible Riverwalk

Construction is planned to begin in 2022, with completion in 2025.

Jon Cardello of Cube3 architects is designing the development, with landscape design by Savino-Miller Design Studio.

Would be awesome if they transformed the bayside market place into a 4-5 story one of these.

I believe the initial plans were lackluster, this plan is much more ambitious and scaled up. A better use of this prime location.

This might be a lengthy project, but it’s definitely worth a shot, considering the amenities. This is something that many residents will want.

Another future impressive addition to the Miami River, soon will be a row of developments from the mouth of the river to 12th Ave bridge.

Hopefully the project can use the city parking facilities under 95 which would also discourage the homeless camp nesting there currently…

This looks amazing and I love the location, but I thought it was getting relocated to Bayside? Can’t wait to go once it’s open!

The FP&L substation should be relocated to the blocks under I-95, which would also open up that land for redevelopment. Unfortunately, you can’t bet on FP&L doing anything innovative.

Very nice. Given it’s a little off the beaten path, I can see why they needed something interesting.

Won’t be off the beaten path for long since this will create a path from downtown to the river and disrupt homeless hq which is overwhelming in this immediate area

I am very disappointed at miami since I read about what happened with the train station.
I read leaders of the project have known about at least since earlier this year and kept it even from the board.
I hope something is done about miami central and the station at the airport.

Not necessarily. Just across the river you can find great deals. Do not expect glitzy new apartments with all the bells and whistles. Find a dated apartment or a decent fixer upper and you’ll be set.

Now, if you want a Brickell style apartment near downtown at a Hialeah price you’ll be searching forever.

Too condensed. The whole reason the wharf is popular is because it doesn’t feel like you’re inside a condo or office building.

I wouldn’t invest in more entertaining venues for in Miami. The city has too many options already. The competition for entertainment is so bad that is becoming unprofitable.
I would invest in housing better.

If they want the city’s land they have to build. Otherwise they lose out on a great opportunity to make their own land much more productive.
