New York-based real estate development and investment firm Naftali Group has announced official plans for a 67-story mixed-use building to rise over 700 feet on a 1.02-acre site at 1044 and 1016 Northeast 2nd Avenue…
1016 Northeast 2nd Avenue
Demolition permits are now in motion for a commercial building formerly serving as the sales center for Paramount Miami Worldcenter. Situated at 1016 Northeast 2nd Avenue, also recognized as the eastern parcel of Miami Worldcenter’s Block A, the demolition project encompasses removing a 26,946-square-foot structure, initially constructed in 1958 and expanded through 1981. The 90,827-square-foot property is poised for transformation. TNG MWC LLC, an affiliate of the New York-based Naftali Group (Naftali), is listed as the applicant of record, with plans to develop a 65-story mixed-use tower on the site.
Renderings have emerged for 1016 Northeast 2nd Avenue, a proposed 65-story mixed-use skyscraper within the eastern section of Miami Worldcenter Block A in downtown Miami. Designed by Arquitectonica with Kimley-Horn as the civil engineer and EDSA as the landscape architect and developed by Naftali Group, a global real estate development and investment firm based in New York, the 700-foot-tall structure would yield 1,288,063 square feet of space, including 786 residential units, nearly 36,000 square feet of amenities, 3,611 square feet of ground-floor retail space, and 591 parking spaces. The 1.02-acre site, flanked by Northeast 10th and 11th Streets to the south and north and Northeast 2nd Avenue to the east, is situated adjacent to the elevated platform of the Eleventh Street Metromover Station. The developer is currently pursuing approval for the project, which is set to be reviewed by Miami’s Urban Development Review Board (UDRB) on April 19, 2023.
New York-based developer Naftali Group (Naftali) has been granted several building permits for a twin-towered residential project at Miami Worldcenter with up to 1.3 million square feet of potential space. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has determined the proposed structures would have no substantial adverse effect on the safe and efficient utilization of the navigable airspace by aircraft or on the operation of air navigation facilities, allowing them to rise 684 feet, or 691 feet above sea level. Naftali formed a joint venture partnership with Cara Real Estate Management and purchased the 44,500-square-foot site at 1016 Northeast 2nd Avenue in Downtown Miami’s Park West neighborhood last year for nearly $41 million. Zoning allows for buildings with a maximum floor count of 60 stories.
