Contractors have broken ground on the Midtown 6 apartment building in Midtown Miami, bringing the total number of apartments under construction in the immediate area to 1,134.
The new tower follows the quick success at filling up an adjacent 400-unit apartment tower, Midtown 5, by the same developer.
In August, Magellan Development of Chicago obtained a $110 million construction loan for Midtown 6 from lead lender PNC Bank.
When complete, Midtown 6 will be a 32-story tower with 447 apartments and 40,000 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. A parking garage will have 601 spaces.
Thousands of units can be seen under construction in the below photos.
