Spider’s 28-Story Spark Gets Green Light From UDRB, Sales To Begin Soon

Miami’s UDRB recommended approval last week for ‘Spark,’ a new 28-story condo tower in Edgewater.

Sales will soon launch for the 56-unit project designed by architect Behar & Font. ‘Latin Americans, New Yorkers, Brazilians’ will be targeted, developer Andres Goldenberg told TRD. Pricing has not been revealed.

Condo units will range in size from 955 square feet to 1,800 square feet. Two three-story penthouses will be sized from 3,895 square feet to 3,925 square feet. Each unit will have a balcony.

Spider Ventures, which is behind the project, is led by Goldenberg and Alejandro Eskenazi. In addition to the project, their company provides accounting, legal, and brokerage services. They claim to have South American backers.

The developer paid $3.55 million for the land last year.

Love all the low-density towers in Edgewater. (Obviously not talking about Paraiso Key.)

What’s wrong (in your opinion) with higher density buildings for Edgewater?

Nothing’s wrong with them, per se, but low density is a nice change from everything else going up and also makes more sense for the nonexistent transit infrastructure. Maybe just maybe the area will be livable and not a traffic-clogged nightmare

Clogged traffic is a consequence of living in the city, if you can’t live with clogged traffic then move to the country because putting up with traffic clogged streets does not make an area unlivable. Crime, poor infrastructure and services, now that’s a different story.

Why do people love extremism here? Everything’s all black or white, city or country. Sure, traffic goes with the territory in most cities, but A. most of them have transit infrastructure allowing for other options and B. that traffic-clogged nightmare is usually the highways. Edgewater’s basically only serviced north to south by US1 and NE 2nd (unless you want to go west, young man). To me, it seems pretty inconvenient to have constant gridlock on those streets to the point where it becomes not just impossible to take a car anywhere (and again, no real options if you can’t bike or walk), but also to where it will make life difficult on pedestrians, as it’s already pretty difficult to cross Biscayne. But I guess I’m just an ole country boy…

Extremism? Don’t blame me because I deal in reality and not an ideal world that’ll suit my idea of the perfect place to live in. Miami is an ever evolving city and the hope for a better transit system will only get more imperative as more density makes it crucial. Now, I call it extremism when someone comes to the conclusion that Edgewater is about to become “pretty inconvenienced because of constant gridlock.” Edgewater and the surrounding areas are nowhere near “critical mass” yet, so leave your nightmare scenarios in the bedroom. Now, if your idea of clogged traffic scares you, like I said, move to the country.

You’re going to sprain an ankle if you keep jumping to conclusions. I was simply describing why it’s positive to see lower density. If every announced Edgewater project had 1,000 units, it’d sure be at that “critical mass” nightmare scenario, right? Right… So maybe that’s why I think it’s positive that the projects are lower-density and will let the area grow slowly and organically while infrastructure [hopefully] catches up. Nowhere did I state that was already happening; I was dealing with a “hypothetical.”

You’re going to have a mental breakdown if you keep “hypothetically” scare mongering yourself about someday not being able to drive, bike, or walk one foot in Edgewater. And who said all of these developers intended or wanted to build everything in Edgewater with a 1000 unit capacity?

Give it up dude, you’re letting your speculations spook you wayyy too much.
