NR Investments will get $14 million in property tax rebates and grant money in exchange for providing 252 units of affordable and workforce housing in a 29-story tower in the Omni area.

The Miami City Commission, acting as the Omni Community Redevelopment Agency’s board of directors, unanimously allocated $5.5 million to the developer on Thursday, to help fund its $80 million mixed-use project at 70 Northeast 17th Street. Headed by Nir Shoshani, Ron Gottesmann, and Terry Wellons.

NR Investment’s latest project will include 41,288 square feet of offices, 4,413 square feet of retail space, as well as the rent-restricted apartments.

A property tax rebate equivalent to $8.5 million had been granted to NR Investments by the Omni CRA last October. The total subsidy amounts to $55,000 a unit, said Adam Old, the Omni CRA’s director of policy and planning.

In its proposal, NR Investments said that the subsidy was needed to make up for “an estimated $17.8 million in rent losses.”

The apartments will be set aside for people making between 60 percent and 140 percent of Miami-Dade County’s median area income, which is currently $54,900 a year. The project’s 188 studios will be rented for between $889 and $2,075 a month. The 60 one-bedroom units will have rents ranging from $953 and $2,224 a month. Four two-bedroom apartments, reserved for a household making 140 percent of Miami-Dade’s median household income, will rent for $2,670 a month.

THE MEDIAN RENT IN OMNI IS $2,146 A MONTH, ACCORDING TO NICHE.COM. PRIOR TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC, CITY OF MIAMI PLANNERS PREDICTED THAT OMNI RENTS WOULD CLIMB HIGHER. THE DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT WITH THE OMNI CRA FREEZES THE RENTS FOR NR INVESTMENTS’ UNTIL 2047.
