Nighttime View from Second Avenue bridge: This is a tentative rendering of Adler's vision for the sites. Some of the towers could be residential and hotels, according to preliminary plans.
More development on the river: Adler plans to include a riverwalk in its project. Aside from voter approval, the project requires city approval of a zoning change and of project specifics, such as building heights and number of units.
A view up from the Miami River: This rendering shows what Adler's project along the north side of the Miami River could look like to boaters.
The changing face of the Miami River: Adler Group's plan is one of many projects by different developers along the Miami River, all in various stages as some are proposed while others have been approved and are under construction. This rendering shows an aerial view of how the site where Adler wants to build, between Interstate 95 and Second Avenue, could change if its plans pan out.
New Miami administration building: The city's administration building is on part of the site Adler wants to develop. The city, which has reportedly outgrown its building, is working with Adler to find a new site. One option: Adler could build a new, bigger administration building as part of its project on that very same site.


South Florida-based developer Adler Group LLC wants to build its first project along the Miami River. Adler wants to build on about 4.7 acres, which include a site it owns at 230 SW Third St. and two adjacent sites, 444 and 460 SW Second Ave. It wants to either lease or buy from the city of Miami.

Exactly what it would build remains unknown but preliminary plans show up to four towers, including apartments and a new city administration building to replace the existing one at 444 SW Second Ave. The proposal depends on voters approving a referendum for the land lease or sale. Adler wants the measure to be on the Nov. 6 ballot.  (Renderings by Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe & Associates.)
