New York City’s Chetrit Group is planing to bring four 60-story towers to the Miami River. The towers would include a marina, 300-room hotel and 1,449 condo units.
Dubbed the Miami Riverwalk, the buidlings would sit on a 6.5-acre area bordered by the river, Southwest Seventh Street, Southwest Third Avenue and Southwest Second Avenue, according to Miami Today.
The plan also calls for retail, some office space, a riverfront restaurant, a public river walkway, other green spaces, a small marina and parking garages.
The plans were reviewed last week by the Urban Infill & Greenways Subcommittee of the Miami River Commission. Committee Chairman Jim Murley was pleased by the presentation, but said he didn’t feel the time was right for an advisory vote to the full river commission, according to Miami Today.
The committee learned also learned that Chetrit recently hired a landscape architect and a firm to evaluate the need for a new seawall, meaning that there is still further design work coming. [Miami Today] – Christopher Cameron
