Balfour Beatty Completes Construction on $298M River Landing Project in Miami

MIAMI, FL — Balfour Beatty has completed construction on River Landing Shops and Residences, a 2.5 million-square-foot, mixed-use development along the Miami River. On behalf of real-estate investment trust, H&R REIT and South Florida developer, Urban-X Group with Matthews Southwest providing owner representative services, the $298-million megaproject will be a dining and shopping destination for visitors, residents, and professionals.

River Landing Shops and Residences is built on 8.1 acres of riverfront land. The development features a seven-story, 488,000-square-foot retail and commercial space that will occupy national retailers and shops, 142,000 square feet of Class A office space, and two multi-family residential towers above a 12-story, 2,344-space parking garage. River Landing also provides boater access along the Miami River, a waterfront linear park, and a 25,500-square-foot restaurant row that will accommodate up to seven fine dining to fast casual restaurants.

“It was an honor to build this landmark project on the Miami River,” said Jason Sizemore, Balfour Beatty Vice President of Operations in Florida. “We commend the project team for safely delivering another transformative project that celebrates the urban lifestyles of thousands of individuals who live, work, and play on Miami’s riverfront.”

The Balfour Beatty team leveraged the latest technologies and lean construction methods to deliver the new River Landing Shops and Residences. At its peak, the job employed more than 750 Balfour Beatty workers and was designed by architects BC Architects, McNamara Salvia Structural Engineers, and Steven Feller MEPFP Engineers.
