Edgewater Hotel, Retail and Restaurant on the Way

Edgewater Hotel, Retail and Restaurant on the Way

Dec 09, 2020 December 09, 2020

Miami’s Edgewater neighborhood is known for its relaxed, waterfront family lifestyle. After news that the neighborhood is getting its biggest supermarket yet, and more luxury making its way in with Nema-branded apartments, plans are being made to build a mixed-use hotel by Urbanica, featuring retail and restaurant space.

The hotel group recently purchased two lots at 237 and 229 Northeast 32nd Street for $3.3 million, and now Urbanica Management owns a total assemblage worth $8.5 million. It had previously acquired 3200 Biscayne Boulevard in 2018 for $5.2 million. With the parcel now complete, developers are aiming for an early 2021 groundbreaking on the mixed-use hotel project.

Introducing Urbanica Edgewater

Led by the duo of Charlie Porchetto and Diego Colmenero, Urbanica plans on bringing a 12-story, mixed-use hotel to the northern tip of Edgewater. The hotel will sit across the street from Crescent Heights’ proposed Nema luxury rental apartments, and be a short walk from The Shops at Midtown Miami plus the recently delivered Paraiso District condo complex.

The 220-key hotel is expected to feature a rooftop pool and gym, a game room, a 4000-square-foot Japanese restaurant, 5,000 square feet of ground-level retail, meeting spaces, and two floors of parking with 150 spaces. The project should bring new life and vivacity to the northern edge of Edgewater, especially benefitting the residents of the nearby 
Bay Park TowersBiscayne BeachPlatinumThe YorkerEmilia, and Moon Bay with retail and entertainment options.

Urbanica’s Miami Footprint

Urbanica has been building its Miami footprint starting with investments in boutique hotels in South Beach, including The Meridian and Euclid Hotels and rounded off with the under-construction Fifth Hotel. All three happen to be within blocks of each other.

After South Beach, the development firm headed north, scoring approval for Urbanica The Beach this June. This North Beach boutique hotel property will be built on a 20,812 square foot lot and feature design elements compatible with its surrounding properties.

For their Edgewater hotel, Urbanica Management is looking at an early 2021 groundbreaking, with completion expected within 18 months for an end-of-2022 delivery.

Real Estate News Miami Building Boom 2021: These are the 12 New Condo Development Projects Planned to Date
It’s a trend we’ve been talking about since the last quarter of 2020 - waves of buyers are contributing to one of the biggest real estate booms in Miami history. As individuals and businesses escape high tax states like New York and California, and have the freedom to work from any location, luxury condo developers in Miami are announcing new project after new project.   Miami condo developers have announced over a dozen new and relaunched condo projects since the beginning of 2021. In an attempt to appeal to a wide range of new residents, each new project aims to be taller, more luxurious, and offer the most exciting set of amenities imaginable, and could bring more than 10,000 residential units to Miami over the next few years. With the real estate market in Miami in one of its most lucrative cycles yet, here’s a look at the latest condo projects proposed in Miami since January 2021 (till the time of this post): New Miami Condo Development Projects 2021 E11even Hotel and...

Neighborhood Comparisons Surfside vs Sunny Isles Beach: Which Miami Neighborhood is Better?
If you love coastal living with walkable access to Atlantic Ocean beaches, and you want to move to a beachfront address while bypassing the hustle and bustle of South Beach, there are two beachside communities to consider when looking to make your move: Sunny Isles Beach and Surfside.  While these communities are practically next-door neighbors (with ritzy Bal Harbour nestled between them) and they share many amenities, including direct beach access to the Atlantic. Plus, they both are in prime locations that provide quick and easy access to airports, shopping, arts and culture, and outdoor living, living there could not be more different from one another.   As insiders who’ve lived in these popular Miami neighborhoods, we’ve broken down the similarities and differences between these two beautiful seaside communities in case you are looking to move to Miami.

Miami Condos with Shabbat Elevators
Real Estate News Miami Condos with Shabbat Elevators
Last updated June 11, 2021. Whether you refer to it as the Sabbath, Shabbat, Shabbos, or by any other term, your religious commitment to observing a holy day of rest should not prevent you from enjoying a luxury condo lifestyle in the subtropical paradise that is Miami.  For this reason, a number of condo communities provide the convenience of a Shabbat or Sabbath elevator, which is a specially programmed elevator that stops automatically on every floor during the Jewish Sabbath, from sundown on Friday evening until sundown on Saturday of every week.  This service is provided in order to accommodate the Jewish religious law that prohibits religious observers from pushing buttons or operating machinery during the Sabbath. While Miami today is known as a particularly Jewish-friendly metropolis, Jews were not even allowed to enter Miami Beach Hotels until the late 1940s. But by the 1950s they began to lay down roots in Miami Beach and to impact the economy, politics, and social flavor...

Brickell Avenue Bridge Schedule, Traffic and Solutions -- All You Need To Know
Transportation Brickell Avenue Bridge Schedule, Traffic and Solutions -- All You Need To Know
Ever tried driving from Brickell to Downtown Miami for lunch? Most Miamians dread the thought of catching the dreaded Brickell Avenue bridge, a drawbridge that opens every hour or half-hour during non-curfew hours to allow river and traffic and boats to pass under.  * This article was updated on June 7, 2021 So what’s the problem? A big one! When the bridge opens, it ends up turning the city into a parking lot. With the last two building booms, there’s been a sudden surge in Downtown population since 2010 that has not stopped, and hence, denser traffic. And with Brickell now one of Miami’s hottest neighborhoods, serving as Miami’s vital financial hub, dense residential condo neighborhood and go-to place for nightlife, travel to and from Brickell and Downtown Miami is unavoidable.  This is why almost every second year, the FDOT faces requests to place restrictions on opening the bridge for maritime traffic during rush hour or extending curfew hours. However, listen to the marine...
