MIAMI, FL – Developer Verzasca Group has obtained a critical approval from the City of Miami’s Urban Development Review Board for its 2000 Biscayne rental apartment project in the Edgewater neighborhood.

The board, which was created by the city to review all urban projects of more than 200,000 square feet in accordance with the Miami 21 zoning code, unanimously supported the development during its Thursday, June 29 meeting. 

The next step is approval from the city’s Planning and Zoning Department, followed by a 15-day appeal period.

Verzasca proposes to build a 36-story high-rise tower with 393 studio, one, two and three-bedroom apartment units totaling nearly 360,000 square feet of living space on the 2000 Biscayne Boulevard site. Dorsky + Yue International Architecture is the building designer.

During the meeting, board Chair Robert Behar praised the project design, which accounted for the configuration of the site. The project is located on a portion of Biscayne Boulevard that is considered a transit corridor of the city and zoned for increased density.

Board member Gerald Marsten cited the landscaping plan and synergy between the project and surrounding urban environment.

“We are thrilled to get the support for our Edgewater project from this pivotal city board,” said Verzasca Managing Director Tim Lobanov

“The Edgewater neighborhood has experienced an incredible transformation into one of Miami’s most desirable urban areas to live in – particularly for renters. We are big long-term believers in the neighborhood.”
