Terra Group Planning 1,400 Residential Units At Miami’s Central Shopping Plaza, Designed By Arquitectonica

Miami’s Central Shopping Plaza across from Magic City Casino is planned to get nearly 1,400 residential units.

The proposal by Terra Group would not demolish the strip mall on the 38 acre property. Instead, the new buildings would be built behind the existing shopping area.

A total of seven new courtyard buildings are planned.

The new construction will include several parking garages. Miami zoning law requires 2,970 combined parking spaces for the existing retail and new residential. With 1,649 new garage spaces and the reconfiguration of an existing surface lot, the property will have a total of 3,145 spaces.

Arquitectonica is the architect.

Terra Group, which is the developer, is in contract to buy the property from the owner of the Magic City Casino.

Miami’s Urban Development Review Board was scheduled to review the proposal at a meeting yesterday.

This is going to bring more activity to that area. And it looks like it’s going to have modestly priced units or affordable housing. They should put offices as well to make it a live work and play experience.

I wouldn’t mind it if more of Wynwood got mowed down and something like this were in that area.

It’s absolutely beautiful. From a dead parking lot to a living neighborhood.

Not a very attractive, nor ugly, building – but anything new is great for the area.

That shopping center sure has a big parking lot. I’m curious as to why the owner wouldn’t want to build apartments on the lot. You can always build a parking garage that has enough spaces for shoppers and residents. It would seem like a win-win to collect rent and then have those same people shop at your shopping center.

Developer is almost certainly leaving the current shopping center and parking lot for an eventual phase 2.

Fantastic project for that area. Should act as a catalyst for more investment and upgrades/development.

I remember going there as a kid. There was a Zayre store where the K-Mart is now. During this time of year there were carnival/fair rides in the huge parking lot. All the kids from the area would go. This was in the late 60s and early 70s.

We had a Zayre store in Charlotte NC when I was a kid.
Ours, the sign would individually light up each letter, then blink them all once, then stay one a few seconds.
Z – A – Y – R – E, ZAYRE, Loved it as a kid.

As a former New Englander I seem to recall the Zayre slogan as “where better quality costs you less.”

I leave in front of this shopping and the traffic by 11 st is already bad, how you will handle to have more people leaving in the area the traffic will be horrible. I think is a good project but the neighborhood that is very quite will not be the same. When it’s this happening???

How about building it 6 stories tall and half the buildings.
Save the other half for green space for the residents.

That huge parking lot.
I would think people would rather have a three-story parking lot where most gets shaded parking – plus closer to the stores rather than a huge space of asphalt. More green space! Trees
