Little Haiti Development

A Miami-based company has submitted plans to the Urban Development Review Board for a large-scale, mixed-use project on 22 acres it owns in Little Haiti.

The Eastridge Special Area Plan (SAP) proposal would replace the Design Place Apartments at 5045 Northeast Second Avenue in Miami. SPV Realty owns the existing apartments, built in 1948. Kobi Karp is the architect and Kimley Horn the landscape architect.

The Miami board on Wednesday will review the application, which is requesting buildings varying in height from eight to 28 stories, 2,798 residential units, 418 hotel rooms, 283,798 square feet of commercial/retail space, 97,103 square feet of office space, 295,343 square feet of open space, 4,636 parking spaces and 231 bike parking spaces.

Plans show the project would have a farmer’s market, open green space, green facades and green roofs with public benefits of up to 25 percent of the total development. Edward Martos, an attorney at Weiss Serota Helfman Cole & Bierman, is representing the applicant, Eastside Ridge LLC. In the application, Martos said the SAP also “encourages the development of medical uses” that would complement the Jewish Health Systems campus that’s immediately west of the Design Place Apartments. The location is also a “logical site for a future transit stop,” Martos said.
