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 the request of the developer to modify the previous MUSP, 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.
