Wood Partners has filed plans with the city of Miami for a 28-story, 387-unit building in Midtown Miami. As planned, the building at 2901 and 2951 Northeast First Avenue would have ground floor retail space and a total of close to 30,000 square feet of commercial space, an amenity deck above the attached 519-space garage, 27 bike parking spaces, and a clubhouse. Midtown 8 aims to target young professionals for its rental apartments.
Units will range from studios, one-bedrooms and two-bedrooms to three-bedroom penthouses with high ceilings. LaFleur, senior associate and director of Stantec’s hospitality division, said the project taps into the young professionals in their 20s and 30s. Interiors will combine neutral tones of the Design District with a raw, concrete-like design inspiration from Wynwood.
The Midtown 8 property is on the southwest border of Midtown Miami, across from the contentious Walmart site. Just outside of Midtown is Morgan Group’s Pearl Midtown 29, a 20-story, 309-unit apartment tower at 180 Northeast 29th Street. Stantec is also designing that project, which is under construction.
Midtown Miami is a mix-use complex west of Biscayne Blvd. and NE 36th street in Miami, Florida. The Shops at Midtown is the retail component to the complex, Midtown 2, Midtown 4, Midblock, Hyde Midtown (coming soon), Midtown 5, and Midtown 6 (coming soon), Midtown 7 (coming soon) and Midtown 8 (coming soon) are the residential component to the neighborhood. Many restaurants like Sugarcane, Bocce Bar, Oyster Bar, Salumeria anchor the bottom of some of the buildings.
