The Downtown Development Review Board will consider final design approval Oct. 12 for the proposed RD River City Brewery mixed-use project.
The meeting is scheduled at 2 p.m. in the Multipurpose Room at the Main Library at 303 N. Laura St.
Miami-based Related Group is the developer of the $92 million project.
The 3.4-acre site on Museum Circle Drive on the Southbank is along the St. Johns River where the former River City Brewing Co. restaurant was demolished.
The project was previously approved in May 2021.
It is substantially redesigned, and as such, the project is being heard by the board as a new application.
The board granted conceptual approval April 13 for the amended project.
The current proposal is for 410 multifamily residential units, a 4,559-square-foot restaurant and an attached parking garage with 511 spaces.
The development includes an eight-story residential block abutting Museum Circle and a residential tower on the riverfront, probably 24 stories, with a parking deck interior to, and mostly wrapped by, the complex, according to the application.
The site plan also shows a riverfront restaurant with outdoor seating and a ground-level pool and courtyard area next to the residential tower.
The original approval was for an eight-story, 333-unit, multifamily complex with a 535-space parking garage. The first plan also included the future development of a restaurant adjacent to St. Johns Park and Friendship Fountain.
Staff review of the project states that “the overall design of the structure conveys a modern, art deco vibe. The form is elegant and streamlined and the design is stylized using the geometry of a wave, both in the tower volume and in the horizontal articulation on the residential block fronting Museum Circle.”
MSA Architects and Carlos Ott Architect comprise the design team. GAI Consultants is providing engineering and landscape architecture services.
The applicant is the Driver, McAfee, Hawthorne & Diebenow law firm. Attorneys Steve Diebenow and Cyndy Trimmer are the listed agents.
