Revealed: Plans For Midtown 6 & Midtown 7

Midtown Miami is getting another two residential buildings with hundreds of new apartments.

The twin towers will include:

  • Midtown 6 – 447 units, 39,718 square feet of retail, 601 parking spaces
  • Midtown 7 – 391 units, 30,709 square feet of retail, 505 parking spaces

Magellan Development, which is also building Midtown 5, is the developer. BKL Architecture of Chicago is the architect.

Miami’s Urban Development Review Board will review the plans this month.

Meanwhile, there are no real plans to expand mass transit into Midtown, further collapsing Miami Ave, Biscayne Ave and I-95 every morning. Midtown needs transit to connect it to Downtown and the Beach, with its own right of way. A street-level tram or a rapid bus would not work. There will literally be tens of thousands of extra residents in Midtown and Edgewater in the next few year.

Actually even the current metromover can exceed 30 mph, it just doesn’t really because it’s an every two block ultra urban distributor.

30mph? No thanks. That thing flings you around enough as it is when you’re forced to stand.

Streetcar would work just fine as long as it has dedicated ROW.

That would work great for everyone if the streets in this area weren’t so narrow and limited to begin with. The action is reactive instead of preemptive down here. Not enough space to create dedicated row now while removing entire lanes in an already gridlocked and getting worse area. Light rail is not going to remove vehicles off the street. While obviously more expensive, elevated row is the way to go.

Sure it is, but it’s also about as likely as Miami getting rated America’s friendliest city. I’m just praying that viable, logical options might work, like TriRail Coastal, which needs to have a proper link to the Metrorail for connectivity. That would go a long way.

Good point. More development and denser urban expansion to Edgewater/Midtown/Wynwood is definitely exciting, but it will never be close to as live-able as Brickell or South Beach without any public transit. At the very least, there needs to be a loop going up Biscayne to 36th St then back down through N Miami Ave. But as always in Miami, it takes multiple cycles of high-end residential construction booms in an area until plans for mass transit are even considered.

They need to expand the Metromover north along 2nd Ave or Miami Ave to midtown yesterday. But what can be expected when you have a bunch of boneheads running the show.

What about the Midtown 1 empty lot? Most visible and looks like crap.

Probably the most expensive and valuable lot… Interesting what will go there.

Boring dumpy slabs. Could be anywhere. The balconies remind me of that Monarc Met 3 abortion downtown.

Anyway yes, mass transit is needed. Real transit. As in, fucking Metrorail, the only proper rapid transit in this entire state. Barring that, Metromover extension with less stops would be ok. Light rail is ok if it doesn’t get stuck in traffic but then we have so many modes that don’t directly connect.

Also, as someone who does not drive: a protected bike route north! Just need one so we can ride fast without worrying about cars on Biscayne. Plenty of ROWs that could be used, doesn’t take much space.

until the public storms the commission meetings or people vote out the officials who have been pathetic at best to help the residents now and future residents.with any form of mass transit…dont count “trolley”….things will never move forward

I have a better idea. We should rewrite our government charter to require all elected officials mandatory use of public transportation. This alone would transform our entire system overnight once they had to suffer one day of the indignities of public transportation in our town.

Midtown, Wynwood, Edgewater = next big thing after South Beach, Brickell, Downtown Miami

After downtown? You realize Edgewater alone will be denser than the CBD & A&E combined after this cycle, right?

Midtown is the heart of Miami metropolitan, and thank GOD is developing just the way it should…nice combination of residential and commercial properties.

Midtown is the heart of the Miami Metropolitan area? LOL You obviously own a condo there….Everyone knows the heart has been in South Beach but is evolving so that now Brickell/Downtown is the actual center.

Yeah! How does this project or Midtown will any better than South Beach, Downtown or Brickell? a crystal ball? Or, are you working for the developer and planting bull crap? Midtown has years to go and I would not move there even if you paid me to. I would agree that eventually it will develop into something, but it will take “years” no matter how much developers and the City wants… and fools like you want it to become an instant success. Pay up and loose / or, as our friend posted below:

Yes, no plans for developing an already crowded city. Shame on the “elected” City leadership, and shame on us for voting them in!

You’re the only Fool here.. Wynwood, Midtown and Edgewater offer value at this point.. and Locals can afford condos in these new projects, as opposed to the already established areas, such as Brickell.

Curious where these posters talking about livability actually live. Midtown’s pretty darn livable. Edgewater’s definitely more “up and coming” outside of around Margaret Pace, but still plenty options in a 15-minute walk, along with much easier access via a car/Uber than, say, Brickell. Areas like Brickell and South Beach have their issues, too…nobody/neighborhood is perfect.
