The Urban Development Review Board (UDRB) has voted in favor of a mixed-use development project at 650 Northwest 8th Street and 678 Northwest 7th Street in Overtown, Miami. The planned project, a collaboration between 0101 Miami Properties, LLC, led by Jorge and Jose Mas, and 8th Street Connections Holdings, LLC, an affiliate of Terra, will encompass over 1.8 million square feet., yielding 1,215 residential units, 16,347 square feet of commercial space, and 1,831 parking spaces.

Designed by Arquitectonica, the development’s plan includes three 12-story apartment buildings and a nine-story parking garage with residential units facing the street alongside a three-story apartment building. This layout is intended to optimize urban living space while integrating seamlessly with the surrounding neighborhood. At the UDRB’s meeting on May 15, the unanimous vote, 4-0, was to recommend the project’s approval as presented.

Located on approximately 8.381 acres, the site boasts principal frontages along NW 7th Avenue and NW 6th Avenue and is bordered by NW 8th Street and NW 6th Street. The area is primarily surrounded by multifamily residential buildings and industrial sites, providing a diverse urban tapestry for the new development. Historically, this plot was assembled by 0101 Miami Properties LLC in 2016, initially targeted for an MLS stadium for the Inter Miami CF team.

The development’s renderings reveal a warm, neutral design that integrates modern and classic elements, creating a visually appealing urban environment. Large, arched windows that maximize natural light enhance the street-facing facades, while the building’s stepped-back upper stories create a varied and engaging roofline.

Terra has stated that the development will be executed in three phases, incorporating a mix of market-rate, workforce, and affordable housing units. The apartment sizes will range from efficient 465-square-foot studios to spacious three-bedroom units up to 1,517 square feet. V Starr is the interior designer. The construction of the first phase, including about 537 units, is expected to begin in 2025, marking a major step forward in meeting Miami’s growing housing needs.
