Bloommiami Set to Transform Little River Building


Bloommiami is joining developers to bring new life to a handful of buildings in Miami’s Little River neighborhood. The adaptive re-use and mixed-use development will feature new restaurants, retail and office space.

Some 60-plus-year-old buildings in Miami’s Little River neighborhood are being transformed into retail through adaptive reuse.

Architecture firm Bloommiami crafted a plan to renovate the four buildings at 235 N.E. 79th Street into 42,000 square feet suited for restaurants, retail and neighborhood offices. Construction on Eden started in early September and should be completed in the first quarter of 2018.

The project is among a growing number of developments in a neighborhood that has been attracting more business and home purchases as people are priced out of areas like downtown Miami, Wynwood and the Design District.

“Eden will mirror the ‘grass roots’ development movement that is defining this unique neighborhood,” said Darin Held, partner at Bloommiami. “As a Little River based company, we’re excited to be a part of this project and bring to the community a space that reflects its people, culture and heritage, while offering a new retail and entertainment destination.”
