Preconstruction for the River Landing development on the Miami River will begin in February.
When completed, River Landing Shops and Residences will span 8.14 acres with 426,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space, 475 apartments and a riverfront park. Foundation work is expected to begin in April, according to a news release.
“The Health District is the densest employment area in Miami with over 45,000 employees working around the clock in world class research institutions, hospitals, medical schools, science labs and the court system. Our intent is to provide employees, residents and tourists a desirable place to live and visit and a new place to shop and dine,” developer Andrew Hellinger, manager of River Landing Development, said in a statement.
The $300-million project, located at 1400 Northwest North River Drive, will be complete from the summer of 2017 to the spring of 2018. — Katherine Kallergis
