Does anyone have any information on development of the Miami River north of 22nd Ave? A big project called Brisas del Rio was supposed to be built where the old Yacht basin is, but I see no signs of anything happening. I always thought that area was a huge amount of wasted space. I know the Rapids development is trying to get approval too. Any thoughts on whether these things will actually be built?

Keep up the great work, my friend :hi: , Yes its just west of N.W. 22 ave bridge, and north of N.W. 14th st. along the Miami river, that site has been vacant for years !!! :eek:kay:

They would need alot of fill for the old Yacht basin that was there, and a huge new seawall will also have to be put in,

The Miami River Commission is opposed but I don't see why it's better to have an empty junkyard. If it was a functioning marine industry I could see the point to their objection.

Yeah, it is kind of lame to have a big open lot, but the thinking of the MRC is that once there is a change in zoning to residential, you can never go back. The approved master plan calls for residential to be concentrated on the lower and mid river, and marine industrial to stay in the upper river. You can easily see the Marine Industries point of view.

Yes, I have read the master plan. I realize that once a slip is filled in it is gone. But I still don't see how it hurts the marine industry to build housing on land that nobody is using or plans to use. The local residents aren't objecting to development, that's for sure. If they are lucky, maybe more of the land will be developed and they will get a some services in the area.

I'm not talking about slips...the issue is land that might be used for marine industrial use.
As I sit in the Miami River Commission meetings listening to the Marine Industry, the Developement community (whom I represent), and the residents (I'm also a MRiver Property owner), it's interesting to see the economic impact of the Marine Industry, and with all the information, you can see why it wouldn't be prudent to eliminate forever land that can help satisfy the economic development needs of the community through a diversified economy.

Sure residents like services, but they also like jobs. Restaurants do not necessarily have to be on the water, the shipping depots do have to be on the water.
