Developer Mt. Zion Development Associates, Ltd. has submitted an application in response to a Request for Proposals from the Office of the City Clerk in Miami to construct an 11-story apartment tower titled Graham Ross Towers at 310 Northwest 10th Street on property managed by the Southeast Overtown / Park West Community Redevelopment Association. The building is projected to yield 122 affordable housing units for the elderly with 208 parking spaces. Behar Font & Partners is responsible for the design, and if the project is approved, it’ll rise adjacent to the Historic Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church.
The interior lot is generally located on the southwestern corner of the intersection between Northwest 10th Street and Northwest 3rd Avenue in the Overtown neighborhood just north of Downtown Miami. The property sits directly east of the Interstate 95 north-bound elevated highway. The nearest train stop is the MiamiCentral station just a few blocks away, and a bus route runs along NW 10th St.
The building will feature a unit mix of 12 studios, 96 one-bedrooms, and 14 two-bedrooms, with 70% of the units set aside for residents making 60% or less of the area median income, 15% set aside for residents making 30% or less of the area median income and the remaining 15% set aside for residents making 80% less of the area median income. Amenities will include covered parking spaces, an exterior deck, and multiple common spaces. The 208 parking spaces will mostly be for public use and will be constructed across the first four floors.
Demolition permits will be required to remove the current single-story restaurant venue and any other structures on the property.
