Baru Will Be Demolished By The End Of This Month To Make Way For Brickell Flatiron

Brickell Flatiron will be a step closer to the start of construction later this month.

Demolition of the former Baru building on the site will be complete by the end of March, according to a source at the developer. Crews are awaiting one final permit approval before beginning work.

With the start of conversions of reservations into contracts in mid-January, one-third of the 548 units at the project had been reserved, the developers have said.

City officials are still processing a request to modify the previous Major Use Special Permit, which had been submitted in 2006 by another developer with Enrique Norten as architect. A decision is expected soon.

The developers also recently submitted their plans to the FAA, listing a height of exactly 700 feet above ground.

    Starting construction with only 1/3 reserved (not even under contract) is a bit risky.

    Yeah, I liked the earlier renderings too. These looks rather boxy and generic.

    But with the quality this developer brings, a good addition to the neighborhood, even though the views are limited. Still puts Related to shame.
