NORTH MIAMI, FL. – (March 14, 2023) – Last Friday, the North Miami Community Redevelopment Agency, along with the City of North Miami, TD Bank, Florida Community Loan Fund, and Solar and Energy Loan Fund, celebrated a building-topping ceremony for NoMi Lofts – North Miami’s new elderly residential housing project, located at 1046 NE 128 Street.
As is tradition in building construction, a building-topping ceremony occurs when the last beam is placed atop a structure, signaling a major milestone in the building’s construction process.
The celebration was attended by North Miami elected officials and community leaders including North Miami CRA Chairman and City of North Miami Mayor Alix Desulme, Ed.D; North Miami District 2, Councilwoman Kassandra Timothe, and President at REVA Development Corporation, Don Patterson.
In 2020, the North Miami CRA Board approved an Infrastructure Grant for REVA Development Corporation (“REVA”) to build NoMi Lofts. “We are thrilled to see North Miami thrive with new affordable housing options for North Miami residents ages fifty years and older,” says North Miami CRA Interim Director, Kevin Crowder. “The construction of NoMi Lofts is a pivotal moment for the City of North Miami, highlighting our leadership in housing development and cementing the importance of sustainability in our North Miami community.” “The topping event is a ceremonial process to show the progress that has taken place. It’s been a long endeavor, and every opportunity we get to celebrate a win, we do,” said Don Patterson, President, and CEO of REVA Development.
NoMi Lofts will contain 5 total units. Affordable housing options consist of 3 one-bedroom units at 797 sq. ft., and 2 two-bedroom units at 1132 sq. ft.
NoMi Lofts is one of many workforce and affordable housing projects that are solidifying the area as a true “live, work, play” neighborhood, joining recent developments such as Sole Mia, Residences at NoMi, and ELEVEN55 NoMi.
