The city of Miami’s Urban Development Review Board will review four big projects in Little Havana, Midtown, Coconut Grove and Brickell on Wednesday.

Eight And First Development wants to build a 12-story, 96-unit residential building at 45 Southwest Eighth Avenue in Little Havana that would include a Presidente Supermarket.

The LLC, controlled by Ana V. and Pedro O. Rodriguez, submitted plans for the mixed-use project to include 44,525 square feet of commercial space, 311 parking spaces and 15 bicycle parking spaces. The developer and DTI Architects are aiming for LEED Silver certification. Presidente would have 35,930 square feet of space.

Over in Coconut Grove, the developers of Cassa Grove submitted their plans for the 116-unit, 200,000-square-foot project at 2900 Southwest 28th Lane. Miami-based MEC Development Associates and B Developments and New York-based Abington Properties announced details for the 12-story project last month.

The transit-oriented development will have luxury apartments ranging from 652 square feet to more than 1,300 square feet, a 3,600-square-foot commercial component, and shared workspaces for residents. It will also feature a public plaza on the ground floor and a sky deck.

Cassa Grove is requesting four waivers, including a 10 percent reduction in parking.

Midtown 6 and Midtown 7, both being developed by the Magellan Development Group, will also go before the Urban Development Review Board, as well as Maizon in Brickell.
