Miami’s development wave could take another step into Allapattah with a new apartment project.
On Feb. 19, the city’s Urban Development Review Board considered plans by 2323 Pointe Group LLC, an affiliate of Bay Harbor Islands-based Pointe Cos., for the 0.81-acre site at 2323 N.W. 36th St., plus 3614, 3620, 3624 and 3638 N.W. 23rd Ave. It acquired the property for $1.95 million in March 2019.
The building would total 167,689 square feet in eight stories. Designed by Modis Architects, it would have 116 apartments, 7,708 square feet of retail, 3,220 square feet of offices, and 129 parking spaces.
It was eligible for a reduction in parking spaces because it’s near the Earlington Heights Metrorail Station. It’s also just south of State Road 112/Airport Expressway.
The building would have a pool deck with a fitness center and amenity room on the fourth floor.
There would be 47 micro units ranging from 385 to 388 square feet, 51 one-bedroom units ranging from 587 to 608 square feet, and 26 two-bedroom units of 911 square feet.
Allapattah has been a low-income area for decades, but new developers have increasingly taken an interest in the neighborhood, which is close to the urban core and has relatively low land prices.
