A Brickell property was designated historic by a Miami board, but development will still be permitted, according to the Herald.
The historic designation approved Tuesday covers only the 444 Brickell property where an office building still stands.
The designation does not cover the adjacent property where two towers are already under construction (and where archaeological excavation has already taken place).
The new designation also acknowledges that the developer has vested legal rights to build a third tower at the 444 Brickell parcel.
The two towers where work is already underway include a 44-story apartment tower, and a 75-story condo tower.
A public riverwalk is planned behind the new buildings. The new plans may also include a connection to the riverwalk behind the Miami Circle, the report said.
