Block 55 is the latest development by Swerdlow Group, a 1 million square
foot mixed-use property. Block 55 will off er ±355,000 SF of retail space,
approximately 1,050 parking spaces and 556 apartment units.
Target will anchor the ground fl oor with a full service Starbucks and CVS
pharmacy within its space. Additional co-tenants will include a health club,
a grocer, multiple apparel concepts and hard goods. The fi rst fl oor will also
feature restaurants with outdoor seating along Sawyer’s Walk, a block-long
dedicated park on the north side of the project.
The parking garage was designed to provide customers with the most
effi cient shopping experience possible, located close to the street and low
in the structure to allow themto exit their vehicles quickly and use multiple
vertical transportation points to access the retail doors.
The residential component will feature one- and two-bedroom apartments
that are roughly 626 and 940 sf respectively. Residents will have a private
pool and clubhouse on top of the retail podium.
The project is designed by Arquitectonica, a world-renowned architecture
firm headquartered in Miami. The developer of the project is Swerdlow
Group, a major South Florida developer with over 40 years of experience.
The general contractor is expected to be John Moriarty & Associates
of Boston. John Moriarty recently completed the Brickell City Centre,
a large urban mixed-use development located due south of Block 55.
Construction is anticipated to begin in March 2020. Retail construction
will take 24 months to complete, with the residential component being
completed six months later.
