Yesterday came confirmation of the long-simmering rumor that Finnegan’s River will be shutting down to make room for yet more condo development. Today comes images of what the planned development, Miami Riverwalk, will look like.
According to exMiami, Miami Riverwalk will consist of four individual 750-foot high tower, with about 1,772 residential units, 360 hotel rooms, over 100,000 square feet of office space and about 180,000 square feet of retail between them. Though, the crown jewel is the actual walkway along the Miami River.
The project is backed by developers Chetrit Group and designed by local architect Kobi Karp.
The current plan calls for the construction to be done in phases, with the actual river walk being completed in the middle of the project.
Developers also hope to apply for a ‘Special Area Plan’ exception, so that the development doesn’t need to meet all the requirements of the Miami 21 development plan.
Riverwalk is a Metromover station in Downtown, Miami, Florida near the northern banks of the Miami River and adjacent to the Miami Riverwalk.
This station is located on Southeast Fourth Street just east of First Avenue. It opened to service May 26, 1994. The red “M” placed as an entranceway to the station was designed by Roberto Behar and Rosario Marquardt.
