Vertical Construction Underway At 720-Unit Midtown Project That Spans Several Blocks

AMLI Residential’s massive Midtown Miami apartment project is now going vertical.

It is the largest residential project under construction in the area by unit count, with 720 apartments planned.

The project site itself spans several city blocks, totaling 6.6 acres. It was formerly the home of a Chiquita Banana packing plant.

AMLI paid $55 million for the property. As part of the deal, the developer agreed to height restrictions in order to preserve views from Midtown Miami, and the buildings under construction will range in height from 8 to 12 stories.

I wish they included a bridge for the residents to be connect to Midtown.

Hopefully they have space to consider that in the near future and the Brightline owners allow it. Seems almost necessary.

The scale is nice. Bike lanes on NE 2nd would be very useful for the future residents. City of Miami, are you listening?

2nd ave is a county road and the proposed revamp of the road includes bike lanes.

First I’ve heard of this. Have any more information on this project? Bike lanes were added on NE 2nd north of 36th a few years back.

The city of Miami did a huge bike lane study in 2010 which is online and a NE 2 lane was promised and then they did nothing. Also NE 1 Av was supposed to have a bike lane and the fresh pavement in downtown and by Canvas still has nothing. It’s a shame because as a bike psycho I’ll ride almost anywhere but protected or even just paint-separated lanes would invite many more people to use their bikes for shorter distances.

Okay extending public transit trains to Midtown, Design District, and Wynwood might change Miami in a big way.

Connecting Brickell, Downtown, Wynwood, Midtown, Design District, airport, and Dadeland/Merrick Park areas would def allow some people to finally ditch their cars (especially among non native Miamians who dont have a real reason to be out in West Kendall, etc.). I actually also forgot that Brightline connects these areas with Downtown Broward and Palm Beach as well.

Unfortunately, even though there’s already a rail corridor to work with, I’m sure this train extension won’t happen for at least a few years #Miami

That system with an 8th street corridor as well as a corridor that connects to Miracle Mile would change Miami. Instantly.

If groundbreaking on a new transit line started tomorrow, it wouldn’t be ready until a few years either.

Thats pretty amazing seeing that old pic compared to Miami today. What a major change it has been in the last 15 years!!

I hope at some point from the design district all the way to Brickell they start putting those power lines under ground. It’s really ugly seeing them everywhere in 2018!

And more hurricane resistant.

I remember when the most popular things in that area were those two lounges on 35th and NE 2nd Ave.

Bike lanes on NE 2nd would be great but right now there are not even sidewalks from 34th to 36th, just asphalt and weeds. Not narrow sidewalks, not broken sidewalks, not sidewalks with no trees but NO SIDEWALKS at the convergence of Midtown, DD, and Edgewater. Miami is a failed City.

They could have used an updated 5th photo here in the slideshow to show off the area going to be used…… ?

I like these lowrise projects that cover more real estate. Covers more open lots an actually looks better from the ground than a high rise. I’m ok with high rises in Brickell an downtown but outside of that id like to see more low rises that cover more space!

No, we need to be maxing density. If not its a lost opportunity. Especially near transit.

What transit?

London, Paris and Barcelona are some of the densest places on earth and they are city made up of mostly 5-8 story mid-rise buildings with very few skyscrapers considering their size.

Paris, London, and Barcelona are not hemmed in by an Urban Development Boundary Line either, and because of that, Miami has no choice but to build taller.

They build some beautiful developments. This will be a great addition to S. Florida.

Yes, preserving Midtown’s views of Edgewater’s skyline 🙂

The clutter of windows on pink building’s side closest to the entrance road and courtyard balconies is hideous. Why when most other elements of the development are solid?

The zigzag windows on the pink building closest to the driveway and cluttered courtyard balconies look hideous. Why do they do that? Line ’em up!
