The Crosby Miami Worldcenter Signs Utilities Deal For 450 Apartments

Miami-Dade County has signed a deal with the developer of The Crosby Miami Worldcenter to supply water and sewer for the new tower.

According to the July 11 agreement, The Crosby will include:

  • 450 apartments
  • 4,000 square feet of retail

No parking garage is being built, but condo owners will have the right to a space in nearby Miami Worldcenter garages.

DT G Block, LLC is the entity that signed the agreement. Related Group and Merrimac Ventures are the developers.

There has been some recent sitework at the property. However, there does not yet appear to be a construction permit pending.

I remember 10 years ago this place was not even close to being this developed. Now when I look at the first picture in the article and realize how much more is coming, I get reminded of how Miami, from the air, will probably have a downtown resembling Toronto or Chicago with incredible density

Toronto is a sight to see.

Toronto has a much larger skyline and many more pockets of density all over the place and they’re building more at a much faster rate. Toronto has more high rises than Chicago. Miami isn’t going to look like Toronto anytime soon. Not to mention that Toronto probably has the best mass transit system of any city in the New World, which lends itself to building out high rise pockets throughout the GTA.

But, but.. some people who come on this site say “Miami is the best city in the world?”

Toronto’s skyline is beautiful and they have the CN Tower and lots of office buildings. They are also the city with the most high rises under construction right now. I remember before their boom started them coming to Miami to learn about it. Now we should be paying them a visit.

In Toronto, they have at least one super tall under construction, maybe two. Both are going to be around 1,100’ in height. All major Canadian cities tend to be more urbanized and vertical than their American counterparts. Canadians try harder to battle sprawl not that Toronto isn’t sprawled out. That said, it’s freaking cold most of the year and the lake doesn’t compare to Biscayne Bay.

Their Spring and Fall are beautiful and summers are delicious except for 2 or 3 heat waves a year. Yes winters are cold but then you appreciate the change even more

^ Come on now. This argument is just disingenuous. You can’t just take the population of Miami proper. You have to include at least Miami-Dade County, if not the greater metro area.

The GTA and South Florida (Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach County) have roughly the same population.

City of Miami has a greater population density than Toronto. TO: 4.4k/sq-km (11k/sq-mi) MIA: 4.7k/sq-km (12k/sq-mi). Comparisons are fair.

But isn’t the winter like half the year? Serious question. When I imagine rough winter, I think of Boston or Chicago, but Canada, where winters extend pretty much to May, must be even worse, right?

You also love the fact that you’re not the developer who has to worry about using his money to buy this site, deal with all the BS that the building and zoning depts you”ll go through in Miami, hire an architect firm plus a construction and landscaping firm, and then build the building and install the landscape around it.

Well go live on a farm somewhere and have at all the chickens you want.

You live in a city whose reputation was built on drugs.. and that would be drug wars, drug smuggling, drug addicts, drug money banks, drug developers, and cops and elected officials that were paid off by drug dealers. And now you wanna make fun of San Francisco like you’re making a point.

No, I don’t care for hens, chickens, roosters, pigs, cows, or anything else that belongs on a farm somewhere and not in peoples back yards. I didn’t grow up in Miami with that shit and I don’t understand why that BS is allowed in these days and times.
