Last week, a utilities agreement with Miami-Dade was recorded by the county, allowing the project to be connected to the water and sewer system. The deal was completed in late January.
According to the agreement, 17th Street Tower will include 252 apartments, 4,293 square feet of restaurant, and 41,278 square feet of office.
The developer is also working with the city’s Building Department to begin work, after already working last year with the Planning Department for approval.
A demolition permit was filed for the site in late December and is getting closer to approval. A building on the site that served as a sales center for the Canvas condo tower next door will be totally demolished.
An application for a construction permit to begin building the apartment tower was submitted in late January, city records show.
