UPDATED, June 18, 12:50 p.m.: A new batch of project proposals will go before the city of Miami’s Urban Development Review Board this week, including plans for a mixed-use rental tower in the city’s Arts and Entertainment District.

888 Brickell Plaza | Developer: OKO Group

An affiliate Russian developer Vlad Doronin’s OKO Group is seeking waivers to build a primarily office tower in the Brickell Financial District.

Watson Brickell Development LLC is planning a 50-story, 940,000-square-foot building at 888 Southeast Brickell Plaza, also known as 830 Brickell. WeWork signed on to take 10 floors spanning 146,000 square feet at the project, which is across the street from Brickell City Centre.

The developer wants the city to approve waivers for lot coverage, parking, landscaping design, driveway width and more. The office tower would have about 15,000 square feet of retail space, 490,000 square feet of office space, and a restaurant on the 53rd floor.

Architect Adrian Smith of Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture is designing the project.

17th Street Tower | Developer: NR Investments

NR Investments filed plans for the 17th Street Tower, a 29-story building proposed for 90 Northeast 17th Street in Miami. The developer wants to build 252 rental apartments, including 128 micro units, plus more than 38,000 square feet of office space, 4,500 square feet of commercial space, and 224 parking spaces.

The 353,000-square-foot building would include a pool and amenity deck for residents, and the project would be built immediately north of Canvas, a 37-story condominium tower recently completed by NR Investments, led by principals Ron Gottesmann and Nir Shoshani.

The Edgewater Hotel | Developer: Amaury Martinez

Kobi Karp Architecture & Interior Design is proposing to build a nearly 159,000-square-foot, 207-key hotel in Edgewater.

The project would replace previous plans for a hotel-condo project called Bentley Edgewater Hotel & Residences. The Heafey Group is no longer involved in the property, and ownership has reverted back to Amaury Martinez.

Karp filed plans for The Edgewater Hotel on behalf of the developer, who’s seeking design waivers related to loading docks, parking and lot coverage. The eight-story hotel, at 410 Northeast 35th Terrace, would include 139 valet-only parking spaces, and a pool and amenity deck on the third floor.

Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly identified 888 Brickell Plaza as a residential building. It will be an office tower.
