3750 Biscayne Blvd, Design District, FL
The Miami City Commission voted 5-0 on Thursday to preliminarily approve a slate of changes in the Miami Design District special area plan, or SAP. They include increasing the height from 20 stories to 36 stories, and transferring density from other commercial properties in the district to the proposed development site on Biscayne Boulevard between 37th and 38th streets.
Goal is to build a signature tower that serves as the gateway to the Miami Design District.
The proposed gateway site, consisting of nearly 1.8 acres, is near the FEC train tracks and the proposed site of a commuter train station to be developed by Brightline. The project would be a mix of retail, office, residential and hotel uses.
