Block 45


In Overtown, a county-owned property known as Block 45 could soon be developed with a transit-oriented development, after a Miami-Dade selection committee chose a top ranked bidder for the land. Construction could begin in less than a year.

Located at 152 NW 8th St, Miami, FL 33136, USA

Design #1

The transit-oriented proposal includes:

Twin 317-foot towers
600 rental apartments
23,000 square feet of ground floor retail
645 parking spaces
Overtown Laughs, a proposed entertainment venue and comedy club and Grown, a farm-to-table quick service restaurant, have expressed interest in occupying the retail space.

A mix of market-rate and lower cost apartments will be included, with 60% of apartments devoted to affordable and workforce housing.

I like the design they went with. The podium is different while the losing design looks typical and cookie cutter and belongs in West Brickell.

Miami-Dade commissioners are scheduled to vote this week on finalizing a deal to develop twin towers at Block 45 in Overtown.

A surface parking lot is now on the site, but the area is exploding with new development.

If approved at a meeting on June 19, Atlantic & Pacific Communities will be granted a 90-year lease to build:

Twin 29-story towers
600 rental apartments (60 percent workforce and affordable)
23,000 square feet of retail
645 parking spaces
Renovation of Historic Overtown/Lyric Theatre Metrorail Station
A pedestrian friendly design is a priority, the developers say.

An aggressive construction timeline is also planned in order to meet the county’s request to expedite building.

Atlantic Pacific Communities is the lead developer, with Corwil the architect.

Atlantic Pacific Communities, LLC has submitted plans to build a 36-story tower on Miami-Dade county-owned land.

Brightline’s 3 MiamiCentral is across the street, including the headquarters office of Virgin Trains.

Earlier this year, the developer beat out a competing bid for the property and won the rights to a 90-year ground lease from the county.

The original proposal had called for twin 29-story towers. A single, taller 36-story tower is now proposed, but the amount of apartments, parking spaces, and retail remains roughly the same.

Plans for Block 45 now call for 616 apartments, 24,981 square feet of retail, and 637 parking spaces.
