SEMINOLE HEIGHTS | Avenue Lofts | 5 stories | 52 units | APR

New mixed-use development to break ground in Seminole Heights (Renderings)
Jul 31, 2017, 11:54am EDT Updated Jul 31, 2017, 12:14pm EDT

The pioneer of multifamily development in Seminole Heights has a new vision for the urban neighborhood — one that includes street-level retail and a rooftop lounge.

Wesley Burdette, who opened the Warehouse Lofts in early 2016, is planning a mixed-use building with a parking garage at 5236 N. Florida Ave., on a .98-acre lot he paid around $500,000 for in 2015.

The Avenue Lofts will include 52 residential units in three stories over 11,000 square feet of ground-floor retail fronting North Florida Avenue. It also includes a 100-space garage, which will be behind the main building.

I like the design and use of the .98 acre lot. Love that the parking garage is nearly non-existent (visibly) and instead located towards the rear-side. Rooftop lounge and exterior eatery/coffee etc add a really nice touch.

Glad that we're seeing more vertical development along Florida... it would be super walkable if not for the empty lots and used car dealerships

The speed limit on FL still needs be lowered, 40 mph means cars racing past you at 50+. Great to see higher density pushing into the area though.

Great project! Now, if only Kennedy could get some of these mixed use developments instead of the proposed single story strip malls.

Agreed! Much of Kennedy allows for this type of development. If we had more developers like this one, I wouldn't really have to worry with another sh*t in a box project.

I'm looking forward to this project going up! My guess is this isn't the last thing from Wesley, so I hope these fill up fast so he can start planning a new development either in Seminole Heights or somewhere else.

I think my favorite thing with this is the streetscape. The outdoor seating, reasonable amount of walking space, and the corner area with small pocket of grass and trees that will provide beneficial shading.

The fact that this type of project can't be replicated throughout NoHo is invalid at this point.

This is great! Funny this has a better res/com mix then some of the DT developments.

I imagine the neighborhood folks will disapprove as I think we've seen in the past.

I live in the neighborhod and follow the Old Seminole Heights Neighborhood Association page on FB. They shared the TBBJ article and the response has been mixed, which is disappointing but not unexpected. You'll always hear from the NIMBYs.

Most people seem pleased to have a nice, new building being built on a currently vacant lot though.

That's good to hear. Hopefully after this is built and they see the value it brings to the area, they'll change their minds. That whole strip is primed for growth.

I see on the map provided in the article the site is one block from the corner of Florida and Hillsborough. I'm amazed the neighborhood reaction would be mixed, rather than more full support. Major intersection, five story building, area desperately needs higher level use of land, all should make for a well received project.

There are more than a few residents that want to confine Seminole Heights to single family homes and single-story commercial buildings but I honestly don't know why. It's just an outdated way of thinking about urban planning.

I like this project, its larger scale for the area but a nice size and needed.

They've applied for a building permit.

Wonderful that this is finally getting off the ground! This will definitely make the area a lot more walkable w/retail + added residents. The scale is really fitting for the area - even though it's 5 stories, it isn't a complete slab like Crescent Riverwalk.

The retail slip will do well, especially b/c its proximity to HHS. Already, lots of my friends go to the bakery, Dollar Tree, Ichicoro Ramen etc. along Florida after school. Can't wait to see this get off the ground. Too bad it's my senior year and I probably won't see this thing fully built for a while!
