MDM Development Group’s MET 1 Project located at SE 2nd Ave and SE 3rd St. uncovered part of a massive Native American burial ground from which more than five hundred human remains were removed in 2008.
MDM’s Description of this development.
The development, is located at the northeast corner of SE 2nd Avenue and SE 3rd Street in downtown Miami. The building is 32 stories atop a ground-floor Whole Foods grocery store, a self-parking parking lot with several hundred spaces and includes 462 luxury apartments that will range in size from 680 to 1,450 square feet. The interior amenities package at the Monarc includes an open lounge area, a club-quality fitness center, spa with treatment rooms, and a screening room with theater quality sound. Outside, residents have access to a landscaped deck that surrounds a resort-style pool, as well as a yoga lawn, bocce ball court, outdoor grill and kitchen and two outdoor bars.
One might suppose that this all-female mural of the Tequesta inside WHOLE FOODS with the it’s caption is in recognition of the over 500 Tequesta human remains removed from here. With Whole Foods owner Jeff Bezos currently buying a residence in Miami maybe he could help fund something better as the richest new citizen of Miami.
