Developer Robert Wennett, Mill Creek Residential, and Estate Investments Group are taking their projects to the city of Miami’s Urban Development Review Board on Wednesday.

Modera Biscayne Bay

Mill Creek Residential plans to acquire the properties at 412 Northeast 22nd Street and 436 Northeast 22nd Street in Edgewater and build a 29-story apartment building.

The developer is proposing Modera Biscayne Bay, a 296-unit, 541,000-square-foot project with 11,600 square feet of commercial space. It will have 432 parking spaces, which includes street parking. Unity on the Bay Inc. owns the development site.

Miami Produce SAP

Wennett filed his special area plan for the Miami Produce Center property in Allapattah earlier this year. The eight-building complex with residential, office, retail, hotel and school components, is being designed by Danish starchitect Bjarke Ingels. 

The proposal covers a site between Northwest 21st and 22nd streets, and between Northwest 13th and 12th avenues, just west of the Santa Clara Metrorail station. Miami Produce Center LLC paid about $16 million in 2016 for the 8.54-acre block at 2140 Northwest 12th Avenue, and 1243 and 1215 Northwest 21st streets, according to property records.

The project includes 1,200 apartments, a 227-room hotel, a 500-student special training vocational school, 74,800 square feet of retail and 231,000 square feet of office space. The properties are currently occupied by about 150,000 square feet of warehouse space.

Soleste Grand Central

A landowner in Overtown filed plans to build a mixed-use residential tower at 218 Northwest Eighth Street.

Estate Investments Group is under contract to buy the site from Sawyers Walk Limited. The developer is proposing a 429,000-square-foot, 18-story building with 6,500 square feet of commercial space. The residential component would include studios, one- and two-bedroom units. Forty of the units would be set aside for affordable housing.

The project would include a pool deck, gym, business center and lounge.
