UDRB Approves Design District’s Tower 91, Demolition Permit Filed

Miami’s Urban Development Review Board has recommended approving plans for Tower 91 at the southern end of the Design District. A demolition permit is pending at the site.

The UDRB approved the project as presented, with no conditions. The vote was 5-0.

Total demolition permits were applied for at the two sites in March and April of this year, with review underway, according to Miami Building Department records.

The developers have said the tower is intended to serve as the southern gateway to the Design District.

Tower 91 is proposed to include:

  • 107 multi-family residential units
  • 21,812 square feet of commercial space
  • 227 parking spaces

Elkus Manfredi is the architect, with Cube3 the architect of record.

Design District Associates and Prinz Corner LLC, which are affiliated entities of DACRA and the owners of the property located at 91-93 NE 36 Street, are the developers.

they need to keep demolishing single family homes and update the zoning laws. That way it can keep expanding and become a solid district

some of the best modern urban design in US history and its only 3 blocks 🙁 definitely needs more covered walkways and trees tho, like the fendi store has that modern portico thing

Best modern design in U.S. history, my ass. It’s outdoor mall storefronts, a low-rise Ginza meets Rodeo Drive meets on steroids.

Um, except the single-family neighborhood to the north is historically protected, and contains some of Miami’s best architecture. Frankly, there are more prewar neighborhoods with 1910s and 1920s architecture which should be designated, and then the air rights can be sold to build taller on the countless vacant or surface parking lots still in the greater downtown area.

We don’t have enough roads to support traffic of the high rises. There should be height restriction in all these dense areas. Brickell is already nightmare and that’s before new office building opens up and 10 more towers get their residents. These decisions to build super tall towers with no infrastructure are purely bribe based

Lol You seriously think Brickell is only getting 1 more office building and 10 more towers? There’s a lot more than that coming. If this bothers you, stop being part of the problem and get out of your car.

I’m not saying demolish every single building, just the ones that look like crap and taking up tons of valuable land. Also, worse comes to worse, they could be picked up and moved down a few blocks. Im sure the developers would love to cover the cost of this

It actually fits very well in the area. Cool, fresh design. The area needs more hotels, office, resi to complement the commercial area. An easy way to achieve this would be to inter connect the area with Midtown, Wynwood and Buena Vista to the north.

Doesn’t anyone ever wander how come there is no direct connection- not even by bus- between Coconut Grove or even Brickell and Wynwood/ Design District/ Edgewater?! All we have is yes, the very important Route J and route 2, but blasting through, and from other areas. And in particular, if you are a tourist in South Beach you need to take the J and choose south or north- two stops- to take in the whole area. We need a touristy route NOW, leaving Douglas Road Metro Station, meander around Coconut Grove, Bayside and the museums east of Biscayne Blvd, then at some point turn left (probably 20 St) and meander around the area in question, take the Julia Tuttle and meander around South Beach. A loop, there should be a clockwise and counterclockwise designation to it……. and stop wasting time dreaming of some rail coming in decades from now.

Isn’t this actually midtown? I thought the freeway was the dividing point.

Yes. Some on here are sensitive about neighborhood boundaries. The “Design District” historically is part of Buena Vista, and Midtown part of Wynwood anyway.

very nice building. Nice to see something with style. Best combo in a neighborhood is business.residential. So people can live in an area and not have long commutes.
