Wow, they just keep coming.
In the shadow of I-95, a developer plans to build four 60-story towers on the Miami River to include a marina, hotel and 1,449 condo units.
The ambitious plan was reviewed May 14 by the Urban Infill & Greenways Subcommittee of the Miami River Commission.
Miami Riverwalk’s towers would cluster the condos and 300 hotel rooms on about 6.5 acres. The plan also calls for retail and office uses, a riverfront restaurant, public riverwalk and other dedicated green space, a small marina and parking garages.
The project is planned for a three-block area bordered by the river, Southwest Seventh Street, Southwest Third Avenue and Southwest Second Avenue.
Committee Chairman Jim Murley was pleased by the presentation on the project, including several renderings of the planned towers, but said he didn’t feel the time was right for an advisory vote to the full river commission.
The developer, New York-based Chetrit Group, had just hired a landscape architect and a firm to evaluate the need for a new seawall, so there was design work yet to be done, the committee learned.
The committee may review a more detailed plan in late June, with a river commission review possible July 7.
In a presentation to some random board (the subcommittee of the Miami River Commission to be precise) the Chetrit Group presented the latest plans for their Miami River megaproject, which in a burst of creativity they have called Miami Riverwalk. The project will include four 60 story towers, each of which will be constructed in a different phase, as well as the Riverwalk promenade itself, which will adhere to the provisions of the Miami River Greenway, and will be phase 3.
The whole kitten caboodle, which will have its own zoning as part of a Special Area Plan, will include a whopping 1,760 condominium units, and 256 hotel rooms, retail, offices, a riverfront restaurant, dedicated green space (yay!), and a small marina. The architect is Kobi Karp.
It was just a matter of time before renderings for the Chetrit Group's megaproject Miami Riverwalk were let out of the floodgates, finally giving the public a thorough glimpse of the future for the land next to the Miami River. And here they are. About half the renderings are courtesy of the developer and architect Kobi Karp, and half a la exMiami. Basically the design is what's been planned all along, leaving the shocking twists to a minimum. There's just a hell of a whole lot more of it to deal with.

Down here, we keep wondering what's going to happen next. When is this all going to stop? :cheers:Looks like that area is in for something special!
Later this week, members of Miami’s Urban Development Review Board will vote on the Miami River project in Brickell, one of the largest in Miami history.
CG Miami River, LLC, controlled by the Chetrit family, has had a team working on the project for at least a year now. Those working on it include Kobi Karp as architect, Roman and Williams for interior design, and Raymond Jungles for landscape design.
The project consists of five phases of development, which will eventually result in four towers that are about sixty stories tall. It will include 4.2m-square-feet of FLR..
No longer skyscraper proposals but still quite tall and now approved! :cheers:Chetrit Group’s mixed-use project on the Miami River was approved by the Federal Aviation Administration last week.
Located at SW 3rd Ave between SW 5th St & SW 6th St, the Miami River project will include four towers, ranging in height from 622-feet to 645-feet above ground. The tallest two towers will each top out at a height of 649-feet above sea level.
New York-based developer The Chetrit Group awaits permitting for their plans to build four 60-story mixed-use skyscrapers along the Miami River. Designed by Kobi Karp, the pending tower cluster titled Miami Riverwalk Towers is addressed as 275 Southwest 6th Street in the north-western perimeters of the Brickell neighborhood, spanning 20 plots of land bounded by SW 3rd Ave. to the west, SW 7th Street to the south, SW 2nd Ave. to the east, and SW 5th Street to the north while also adjacent to the river waterfront and nearby the Interstate-95.
The developer of the Miami River project has applied for a construction permit for the first building at the complex.
The application was applied for on May 19, and the full plans were accepted by the city on June 24.
The tower will rise 54 stories, or 643 feet.
Total hard construction cost is estimated to be $205,878,500.
The developer of the proposed Miami River complex completed a deal to connect the project to Miami-Dade’s water and sewer utilities system.
The deal was completed on June 30.
According to the agreement, the Miami River project will include:
- 1,843 apartments
- 54,200 square feet of full service restaurant
- 40,000 square feet of office
- 130,600 square feet of retail
- 17 marina slips
Construction is now underway at the Brickell site where a 54-story, 632-unit residential tower is planned.
The developer filed a Notice of Commencement on August 26, and construction equipment is now at the property.
According to the filing last week, test piling is now underway.
Also now underway is construction of a new seawall, select demolition of an existing seawall, demolition of buildings, tree removal, clearing & grubbing, and installation of temporary water & electric to support construction, the filing states.
