Developers have a dozen projects in various stages, from proposals to nearly completed construction, that would add 10,500 condo and apartment units along the Miami River, according to The Real Deal’s review of records. This could be an undercount, as TRD’s analysis focused on applications and construction loan filings only over the past year. More projects could be in the works and some long-stalled ones could be in for revival.

The Miami River runs 5.5 miles from a canal near Miami International Airport to Biscayne Bay. It is among the first, if not the first, inhabited areas in Miami, with archeologists discovering artifacts, as well as animal and human remains, some dating back 7,000 years.

The promise of a building boom on the Miami River shows the city is perhaps coming full circle. After developers homed in on neighborhoods elsewhere, they are now coming back to build along Southeast Florida’s oldest natural landmark.
