Demolition Is Underway At The Empire World Towers Site

Demolition has commenced at the Empire World Towers site at 330 Biscayne Boulevard.

An 11-story office building with 132,409 square feet of interior space is being torn down. It has been vacant for years.

Records show that a permit for interior demolition has been approved, while a permit for total demolition is pending.

Developer PMG bought the property late last year for $80 million. They plan to announce a signature condo tower for the site in early 2016. A separate, 464-unit rental building called Vice is planned at the rear of the property

A third, 77-story tower called the World Trade Center of the Americas has also been proposed on the same block. A Holiday Inn remains in operation on that property.

Construction on Vice will begin by the end of 2015.

So you don’t think that this site would’ve been better served by putting another park there?

I agree! Why don’t we ever hear of developers spending $80MM to donate a park??? The city gives so much to developers its about time developers gave back to the city!
