Another apartment tower will soon begin construction in the Omni area.

Uni will include:

  • 252 rental apartments

The tower will top off at 360 feet.

Uni is among the first projects in Miami-Dade to take advantage of the tax benefits of being in Opportunity Zone. The Omni CRA is also giving a tax rebate and a grant in exchange for offering a portion of units to those with low incomes.

NR Investments is the developer. Zyscovich is the architect.

To everybody talking about the north views of Canvas, what views? Of a cemetery? You’d be stupid buying for that view, not even withstanding the fact the empty lot to the north was developable anyway.

Agree re the north facing canvas owners whose condos with blocked views likely fell 35+% in worth -they are true “freiers.”:(
