Soil Testing Underway At Midtown Miami Property Where 972 Residential Units Permitted

In Midtown Miami, a large new development on the former Walmart property appears to be gearing up to begin the approval process, with soil testing now underway.

The new development is likely to be big: up to 972 residential units are permitted on the site.

Walmart once owned the site and had plans for a superstore, but later sold it to Midtown Opportunities.

Earlier this year, the property was listed for sale. It is one of the largest urban development sites in Miami at 5.55 acres, the listing said.

According to the listing broker’s website, the property is now in contract to be sold to an unidentified buyer.

There doesn’t appear to be any active construction permits for the property, city records show.

There are multiple developments either planned or under construction across the street from the site including The Standard Residences and Midtown 7.

I remember when I came to Miami in 2004 and midtown was nothing more than an old banana processing warehouse and wynwood was the last place on earth anyone would even consider going. Miami’s growth has been astounding in less than 20 years to say the least.

This midtown Miami project was catalyst in my opinion. Started the construction wave in all the neighborhoods north of downtown.

It’s was going to happen anyway same way it did on the beach side, development will be high density east of 95 all the way to Palm Beach County in 10 years or less

It already is, relatively speaking. Downtown redevelopments, infill, and Brightline have just fortified it. High density doesn’t necessarily mean high-rise either.

Midtown was an FEC railyard. The banana processing warehouse was on the other side of the tracks.

That’s the final piece to Midtown and Wynwood. I think the developers should consider the new metro mover stop being there, and incorporate it into their design

That’s already planned in the new metromover extension to design district, at 29th street

The FEC Corridor might get a local stop between NE 27th and NE 29th Streets. Maybe. Hopefully, Lemon City will get its stop back on NE 60th Street.

That empty lot between target and the row of towers on 1st Ave is also the final piece.

The other land site between the retail and the condos (by Starbucks) would be an amazing central park of sorts for the area. It’ll never happen though.

I agree, throw in a fountain, some unique trees, artistic design, and boom. That area has a lot of potential, I always thought both Midtown and Wynwood needed a main park to add to the attraction, serve all the new residents moving in, and make the areas more recognizable like in other major cities.

They’re testing for a flip, this massive lot isn’t going to be developed soon

And there’s plenty more low rise garbage that can be mowed down and replaced with new mid to highrise structures.

Go to the one on NW 79th. You can take Metrorail there to Northside station.

He only takes Metromover because it’s free and doesn’t want to go to Northside for various “reasons.”
