New York developer Greystone & Co has filed for a phased construction permit to begin work on 2500 Biscayne. Construction will begin in early 2015, according to the developer’s website.
The developer has approval to partially demolish and restore a historic structure on the site and build a 20-story residential tower designed by architect Behar Font & Partners of Coral Gables.
There will be 156 ‘unique’ rental apartments, and the luxury project will be ‘fully amenitized’. A full block of retail will be offered on the ground floor, including in the preserved facade of the historic building.
A building on the site which once housed Mario The Baker has already been demolished.
