Vertical Construction Is Now Underway At 283-Unit Boulevard Apartment Project

The Boulevard apartment project is now going vertical after contractors installed two tower cranes to assist with construction.

The cranes were installed in late December, according to contractor L&R Structural Corp.

Developer 13th Floor Investments is building the project at 5700 Biscayne Boulevard, on a site where several condo projects were proposed but never built.

A $63.8 million construction loan was issued last month.

The project will include:

  • 283 apartments
  • 35,855 square feet of full service restaurant
  • 13,485 square feet of retail
  • 517 parking spaces

Rents are expected to average $2,200 per month, the developer told the SFBJ. The property will be a “flagship for the area” and will include high end finishes.

Corwil is the architect. Civic Construction is the General Contractor.

This block is not excluded from City of Miami height restrictions. The site is excluded from the MiMo Historic District due to corruption years ago.

What is an “unfriendly” building?

I mean, I’ve heard that said many times before so please folks, forget the asinine “thumbs down votes,” I would just like somebody to answer the question.

It was a joke about the original post using compliments (politely congratulates or praises) instead of complements (completing or bringing to perfection).

An unfriendly building is most everything by Related and Melo these days.

Unfriendly is an empty, desolate, weed strewn, broken glass and trash filled, dark and scary looking area of lots. Saying you don’t like the design of Related and Melo’s buildings is not what “unfriendly” means.

Yeah, I really like the scale of this. And if anything like the renderings, it should age well.

I live in the area and I’m very happy that it is finally being built.
Now that this beauty is starting to take shape, please reconsider the absurd 35′-0″ Construction Height Restriction in the Stangnated MiMo District and rezone the whole area accordingly with every block’s real redevelopment potential. There is not a single reason why after 10 years of being created the MiMo District has seen so little progress.

Blame the politicians in this city who’re scared of the whiners who live in one and two story houses near the MiMo District.

Mimo Historic?..that’s Hystetical!
Where is it?
Some old dilapidated Motels that are rotten to the core.
The area is perfect for development not just empty retail spaces that no one can afford!! Where are the pedestrians and the parking necessary to support the expansion??
Just a bunch of angry Old frustrated people that have nothing better to do!!

I love it. this area has so much potential it’s a shame it has so many empty lots. I hope this sparks more development on the Mimo District

Needs more parking. That section of NE 4th Court lacks sufficient parking. Undoubtably employees of new tenants will need parking spaces. Also the building is almost lot line to lot line. No grass…?

I feel like there should have been more retail than restaurant

Zero Lot Line?
8 months ago

It is another speculative project. Projected rents are much too high. Huge slap in the face to neighbors. Almost zero lot line.

Another disaster

We hope the speculators flip the project to experienced developers. We wish the City demanded some grass and trees added to the site. Too much concrete.

A little more setback from Biscayne would have been nice. Appears to crowd the /narrow/ sidewalk

Have you worked on a commercial loan? They don’t give a damn about parking. Stop spreading that lie.

They care about the viability of a project and parking of course is part of that equation. This building will help this area substantially.

Really? Generally – office, retail, and mixed use buildings are only able to secure construction financing after a requisite amount of pre-leasing, or loan if you can “gap” finance in the form of a workforce subsidy from your local gov., or it is an EB5 project, or a give you a smaller insufficiency loan amount.
Good luck finding a Developer to build with no construction financing, or signing a personal guarantee for a loan on a insufficient parking building. Good luck meeting with your pre-leasing offering insufficient parking to your tenants. Perhaps in fantasyland.
