The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has given multi-family real estate developer Atlantic Pacific Communities the green light for the construction of Block 45, a 36-story transit-oriented mixed-use building planned for 152 Northwest 8th Street in Miami’s Overtown District. Permits for the 395-foot-tall structure were approved on February 22, 2022 along with permits allowing the assemblage of two tower cranes on the property of 303-feet and 450-feet for vertical construction. Block 45, which was recently submitted to Miami-Dade County planners, is designed by Coral Gables-based Corwil Architects and is proposed to yield 616 residential units, 24,865 square feet of retail space and 605 parking spaces. Architectural Alliance Landscape is the landscape architect.
In spring 2019, Drury Development Co. purchased a 13.73-acre property for $16.5 million. The property was previously called “Loehmann’s Plaza.” Now, the Missouri-based firm hopes to replace the plaza with a two-phase mixed-use venture.

With site work already underway, the deal will connect the buildings to Miami’s water supply and sewer lines, providing utilities for 1,195 apartments, 200 hotel rooms, 165,000 square feet of office space, an 86,151-square-foot spa, a 23,312-square-foot full service restaurant, 1,417 square feet of fast food space, a 5,120-square-foot banquet hall, a 13,673-square-foot fitness center and a 32,000-square-foot fire station. The buildings are designed by New York City’s SHoP Architects with James Corner Field Operations as the landscape architect.
Construction broke ground in December 2021 on Gulfshore Playhouse, a theater in Naples, Florida. The venture’s been in the works for years, and finally, it’s one step closer to being a reality.
Total demolition permits have been filed for a single-story building at 30 Northeast 39th Street in Miami’s Design District. The 6,232-square-foot structure was built in 1920 according to property records, and was used as a commercial building with retail purposes. The interior lot spans 6,756 square feet and is located on the northeast corner of the block, bound by NE 39th St. on the North and NE Miami Ct. on the West. This parcel of land, along with the 14,434-square-foot parcel 3825 N. Miami Ave. on the northwest corner of the block, will eventually make way for The Ursa, a 15-story Class-A office building designed by Arquitectonica and developed by Sun King LLC, an entity affiliated with Design District real estate developer Dacra led by CEO and President Craig Robins. The development was originally proposed to yield 180,000 square feet of leasable office space and 6,800 square feet of ground floor retail with museum-quality exterior public art and interior art curated by Daniel Arsham.
