Eastern Atlantic Companies is proposing to build an affordable housing apartment project in Little Havana.

The Miami-based firm wants to develop First & Sixth, a 100-unit rental building at 35 Southwest Sixth Avenue, according to a permit filed with the city of Miami. The development would add to a slew of apartment buildings underway in the area, which lies near the Miami River.

The 13-story tower will feature roughly 2,350 square feet of ground-floor retail space, according to a project description posted on Brevitas.

The project will offer studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom units featuring floor-to-ceiling windows and European-style kitchens, Eastern Atlantic’s Kyle Merville said via email. Amenities will include on-site bicycle storage, a rooftop pool and a fitness center.

The site is a parking lot that spans 15,000 square feet. Eastern Atlantic Companies purchased the property in June for $1.6 million under the entity 35 SW 6th Avenue LLC, led by Eric Milne. Records show the seller is Sylvia Urlich Fox under the Sylvia Urlich Fox Land Trust Agreement dated August 19, 2014.

The proposed 130,000-square-foot building will provide affordable and workforce housing options. The total cost on the permit is estimated at $21.7 million, records show. Soliman Structures Inc. is the contractor.

First & Sixth joins several other proposed multifamily projects in Little Havana. Earlier this year, developer Alan Amdur proposed a 19-story senior and workforce housing project on a 2.84-acre block between West Flagler Street and Northwest First Street. Mast Capital is also building Miami River Walk, a 688-unit, eight-story project on 6.3 acres along the Miami River at 1001 Northwest Seventh Street.
