Under Construction 710-Unit Square Station Still Going Through Approval Process

Melo Group is requesting Planning Department approval to build Square Station – even though it is already under construction.

According to the plans that were submitted to planning staff, the project includes:

  • Twin 35 story towers
  • 710 apartments
  • 946 parking spaces

Construction is nearing the tenth level, and window installation began last week.

The newly submitted renderings also show what appears to be another rental project on a lot across the street. Melo is in the process of rezoning that property.

Miami’s Urban Development Review Board is scheduled to review the plans for Square Station at a meeting today (3/15).

Itec Design is the architect.

Whatever permit they are waiting for is probably a formality. Nice project for Melo.. changing an entire neighborhood.

They only have a foundation permit. They do not have a phased permit for vertical construction nor do they have a master building permit. Sometimes developers do these things when they know the city will look the other way….

They have an open construction permit. The foundation permit is enough to do construction work. When the plans are approved, the work has to match the plans. If they know what they are doing, they are one shrewd set of developers…. If they mess it up and have to demo half of it to meet zoning or building rules.. then.. their dumb.

Actually a foundation permit only allows you do the foundation and first floor. In order to go vertical you need either a phase permit or the master permit…. neither of which do they have. The project also requires several waivers that have yet to be approved….

That one is my least favorite because for the bay walk to work you have to have a minimum continuous path, or else you have a bottleneck at certain points and that was blatant disrespect. I am glad the city stopped that project in its tracks till they revised. Love what Melo does and is providing for Miami and it’s residents, but watch your self boys…
