Demolition and plumbing permits have been issued to Miami Gardens-based developer NR Investments for 1455 North Miami Avenue, where a 31-story mixed-use tower is planned. The 321-foot-tall structure is designed by Corwil Architects, and is planned to include 398 rental apartments, 8,539 square feet of retail space and a parking garage for 451 vehicles. The developer, under the 14th Street Development LLC, assembled the 49,800-square-foot site over the past decade, located between North Miami Avenue and Northeast Miami Court, with Northeast 14th and 15th Streets on the north and south. The project is officially addressed as 31 Northeast 14th Street, located in the Arts & Entertainments District.
The demolition scope of work will be carried out by Thunder Demolition Inc. estimated to cost $20,000. A portion of the property is improved with a small commercial structure, which will soon be razed for the new tower. The master demolition permit was issued on August 17th. A plumbing permit was issued on August 30 for sewer capping. Bear Plumbing Inc. is listed as the contractor.
According to plans filed with Miami’s Urban Development Review Board in July, Uni+Dos is will have rental apartments ranging from micr0-studios, one- and two-bedroom units, with a portion reserved for workforce housing.
New construction permits have not been filed. However, YIMBY expects the developer to break ground later this year.
NR Investments has another project already under construction a few block away at 1642 Northeast 1st Avenue dubbed Uni Tower. The affordable housing development, which broke ground earlier this year, is planned to top off at 29 stories and include 252 income-restricted residential units, 10,000 square feet of office space, 4,500 square feet of commercial space, and 224 parking spaces.
