Revitalizing Historic Edgewater: A Blueprint for Workforce Housing

Redefining Edgewater's Office Landscapes

Our meticulous analysis identified 25 office buildings in Edgewater, earmarked for their potential to morph into vibrant residential hubs. The criterion for selection was clear: each building must offer the spatial capacity to host residential units that significantly exceed the existing office footprint.

A Neoclassical Gem Awaits Transformation

Among these candidates is a neoclassical marvel, its Ionic columns standing as testaments to architectural grandeur. This historic edifice not only captivates with its aesthetic but also promises ample land for an innovative residential revival.

Refining 3D Contextual Models

Initial 3D models require adjustments to accurately reflect the spatial dynamics, particularly the proximity of adjacent structures. This precision ensures that our development strategy is informed by the real potential of the site, unencumbered by neighboring buildings.

Envisioning Diverse Development Outcomes

The proposal lays out a spectrum of possibilities, from preserving the office's legacy to introducing multifamily dwellings or crafting condominiums. The goal is to weave new residential threads into the fabric of this historic structure, enhancing its utility and relevance.

Addressing Miami's Housing Market Needs

Miami's housing landscape shows a marked deficiency in workforce-targeted condominiums, with a predominant focus on standalone homes and luxury units. Introducing market-rate condos in sought-after areas like Edgewater could meet pressing demand and ensure swift market absorption.

Forging Strategic Partnerships

The next step involves reaching out to AQOZFI SLP BISCAYNE LLC, the entity behind this underexploited property, to explore joint venture opportunities. Such collaborations could unlock the door to transformative projects that blend historical preservation with modern living solutions.
