The Related Group, Crescent Heights and the Melo Group are seeking approval from the Miami Urban Development Review Board for projects in downtown Miami and Edgewater.

Related and its partner, ROVR Development, led by Oscar Rodriguez and Ricardo Vadia, are proposing The District at 225 North Miami Avenue in downtown Miami. The 37-story mixed-use project would have 343 residential units and nearly 2,300 square feet of ground-floor retail space.

A year ago, Related’s Parcel C LLC paid $8.8 million for the two lots at 225 and 233 North Miami Avenue, which total 15,000 square feet of land. Related said last year the tower would include micro condos.

The project, designed by Sieger Suarez Architects, would have hotel rooms and apartments, and residential amenities such as a gym, pool deck and rooftop spa, and lounges.
