Condo Tower At Epic East Site Will Break Ground This Year

Another luxury condo high rise will begin construction in downtown Miami later this year.

Riverwalk East Development, LLC plans to begin construction on the tower at the former Epic East site in the fall of 2016, representatives told the Miami River Commission last month. The company is controlled by the Coto family, owners of a supermarket chain in Argentina.

The Cotos paid a record $125 million for the 1.25-acre site at 300 Biscayne Boulevard Way in 2014. A 609-foot tower with 596 units called Epic East was once approved for the property in 2004, but new regulations permit a taller height and higher unit density.

The developers are asking for permission to open a sales center at the site with a temporary river walk (the previous owner of the property violated zoning rules by failing to demolish the former Epic sales center to build a required river walk.) The sales center will be demolished in December 2018, with the completion of the tower.

Plans for the temporary sales center list the project name as 300 Biscayne Blvd. (not to be confused with PMG’s supertall condo tower a few blocks north.) Luis Revuelta, who once designed both Epic condo towers, is listed as architect, along with Bodas Miani Anger of Argentina.

Not a very splashy announcement or name considering what they paid for this lot, and that photo do their Panama project is bland. Luis Revuelta has disappointed in the past so we will see. I thought a high end hotel might be a better fit for this location in ” Hotel Alley ” considering it’s proximity to the Mandarin Hotel, Viceroy, Epic, JW Marriott Marquis, Hotel Intercontinental, and Relateds Hotel component at One Brickell.

With the crazy price they paid for the land, I’m sure they will use the full 1,049 ft. allowed.

By “break ground”, that means on the sales center… the tower. I would bet a good amount of money it is not this year

This site is actually to the east of epic and will block the water views. I don’t know why it’s being called epic west

The original article had it written as such, it has since been edited.

So, hold on here – Another application to keep the sales center a few more years. Hugo Columbo said the same thing and ended up keeping his little palace there with no regard for the riverwalk, city of miami, or locals. What will keep this developer from not tearing down the sales center?

I think the city should have them put up a significant bond, that the sales center will be demolished by xx date regardless of construction on the site in exchange for accepting any plans for construction especially while existing zoning violations are still occuring. The bond money will need to match the demolition costs at a minimum.
