Chetrit Group has begun construction on four million square feet of new development on six acres along the Miami River waterfront in Miami, FL.

Chetrit Group to Transform Miami River Waterfront with 4M-SF of Residence, Office, Retail, Hospitality

New York, NY-based developer Chetrit Group, a privately held real estate development company, has begun its transformation of six acres of Miami River waterfront located between I-95, Southwest Second Avenue and Jose Marti Park in Miami, FL.

When fully completed in 2026, the River District will comprise four million square feet of new development, including 1,600 residences, Class A office space, 30,000 square feet of retail, a boat marina that can accommodate 60-foot vessels, 2,000 covered parking spots and restaurants and nightlife venues.

“The Miami River has been ripe for a new archetype of riverfront living, especially as the Brickell neighborhood continues to attract national companies and new residents to its urban core,” said Michael Chetrit of Chetrit Group.

Chetrit Group intends for the River District to bring high-end living, working, dining, shopping and yachting to the area with four new skyscrapers, a pair of two-story waterfront retail buildings, a marina and streetscapes inspired by Brazil’s tropical modernism aesthetic.
