Second Tower At River Landing Tops Off, Completion Early 2020

River Landing’s eastern tower appears to have topped off, with a tree visible at the top yesterday.

Two residential towers now rise 23 and 25 stories high. They will be ready for occupancy in early 2020, along with the rest of the $424.8 million project.

Initially, the project was proposed to include:

  • 507 apartments
  • 382,030 square feet of retail
  • 39,900 square feet of restaurant (including a restaurant row along the river)
  • 2,200 parking spaces
  • Riverwalk open 24/7

In January, the developers announced they were increasing the height of the retail structure from five to seven stories in order to build office space. The top three levels of the retail building will now be offices, totaling 135,000 square feet of office space.

TJ Maxx, Ross Dress for Less, Publix, Burlington Stores, Chase Bank, GNC, AT&T, and Hobby Lobby are signed on as tenants for the retail space.

Urban X Group of Coral Gables is the developer.

This project will spur amazing new growth along the river over the next decade or two. Great for employees of the medical park too.

“This project will spur amazing new growth along the river over the next decade or two.”

Would’ve seen it that way years ago if it wasn’t for crybabies whining and stopping highrise residential development along the river because some people where mad when property owners sold and left instead of losing money trying deal with a dead river zone. Because of that, another useless bureaucracy called the Miami River Commission was formed.

They are making progress finally this year, the things may change with them. Although there must be a balance, we do need a working river as well. And there is still plenty of land in Miami to build on.

Thanks for the reply. I see my comment got some thumbs down votes. I’ve been reading “The Next Miami” since it’s inception when it was first called “The New Miami” and other publications concerning new developments in Miami for many, many years and that’s how I know what I wrote is a fact. If anyone doesn’t believe it, do some research on it yourself.

How would we ever live without this unique lineup of stores?

Another Publix? Really?

The closest Publix locations are in West Shenadoah bordering Coral Gables, and the Arts & Entertainment District across from the old Omni International Mall. It’s well warranted, and a even few more could even be built in Allapattah as the neighborhood revitalizes.

Living in Allapattah I couldnt agree more. How can people say another Publix? or Retail store. It is obvious they dont live in the area with a family with young kids or are not working class people that work 10 plus hours a day. After 6pm it is impossible to purchase goods in Allapattah and the only supermarket open till 10pm is Winn Dixie on 17th avenue. Working Families have to drive to Hialeah or Flagami to purchase anything. Lord forbid your kid comes home with a note saying he needs to take something to school. Its a field trip to purchase goods.

I guess we now know why 836 is being widened and double decked. Gotta have a way for those 2,200 parking spots to be used easily.

Of this entire project, I knew the reporting of 2,200 parking spaces would be the one thing that somebody would focus on and leave a comment about. smh….

its not cynical, its literally 10 floors of parking that can be anything other than parking. Think about the opportunity cost of that.

Don’t blame the developers.. this project consist of apartments, retail, and restaurant with a “restaurant row along the river.” Where do you think all these people should park?

This project is steps away from the Justice Building and Hospitals — Parking is needed to support the surrounding services that currently do not have sufficient parking. Folks will be parking here and leaving no parking for store shoppers if not sufficient.
