The Real Deal 10/23/15
The Miami City Commission late Thursday unanimously approved a development agreement and rezoning of a 10-acre site where Pearl and the Chetrit Group plan to build the mixed-used site that includes four towers, a hotel, shops, restaurants, and a public river walk with boat slips.
To obtain city approval for higher density, the developers promised to invest $14 million into an affordable workforce housing fund, as well as $7 million for public infrastructure surrounding the project, including renovating nearby Jose Marti Park.

The Miami River project, located between Southwest Second and Third Avenues, the river and Southwest Seventh Street, includes two 58-story and two 60-story glass and steel towers overlooking two low-rise commercial buildings to the north along a public river walk with boat slips. Elevated walkways and gathering spaces orbit parts of the project, and a new, private street would cut north to the river through the district’s core, lined the whole way by three stories of retail.
