Swerdlow Group Proposes 860,000-Square-Foot Vertical Retail In Overtown

Developer Swerdlow Group wants to build a $130 million mixed-use project called Sawyer’s Landing in Overtown.

It is one of two proposals submitted for the lot, in response to a Request For Proposals made by the Southeast Overtown/Park West Community Redevelopment Agency.

In total, the project would include 860,000 square feet of space, mostly value retail. There would also be 115 workforce housing units sold as condos.

Swerdlow says that are executed Letters of Intent to occupy 71% of the space, including a fitness club, pet store, retail and entertainment. The parking garage would be operated by the Miami Parking Authority.

Robin Bosco Architects and Planners (Fifth & Alton, Dadeland Station) is the architect, along with Kobi Karp.

It looks nice at street level, but those giant blank walls are quite ugly. The 1980’s style balconies also don’t help.

I like it. It’s appears to have the residential and retail needs of the residents in the area in mind. So of course it’s not going to be expensive and fancy.

Like ALL of the new projects going up in Overtown, this will improve the neighborhood, which is good for everybody.

A boring box with cheap and nasty shifted/zig-zag windows at the ends. Even Opa-Locka doesn’t deserve this crap.

A shame about the huge parking deck.

However, the wide sidewalks are a plus.

I wouldn’t buy into any project that didn’t have parking or other basic amenities like plumbing and air conditioning.

How do you propose people get there? Is there a Metro or Metromover station? I am sure all you hounds who are against parking garages have cars.

As a general rule, people in South Florida who don’t have money for a car also don’t have money to buy a new condo.

I will never forgive Robin Bosco for the abomination at 5th and Alton. Worst retail project this century and set the city back 15-20 years

You still need retail for local service needs (restaurants, barbershop, hair salon, laundromat/dry cleaner etc.)
