70-Story Okan Tower Files For Construction Permit (Updated)

70-Story Okan Tower Files For Construction Permit (Updated)

Okan Tower is one step closer to beginning construction.

On September 1, contractors filed a dry run permit to begin building a 70-story tower, city records show.

Next week, a phased Class II foundation permit will be filed, along with a master building permit, a consultant working for the developer said.

The filing last week included:

  • 500 sheets for review by city officials
  • $457,707.60 upfront permit fee
  • $163,466,625 total cost of construction
  • 318,090 square feet of hotel, with 294 rooms on 19 floors
  • 512,080 square feet of condo, with 398 rooms on 33 floors
  • 66,920 square feet of office, on 4 floors
  • 37,005 square feet of retail on 1 floor
  • 934,095 total square feet to be built

The hotel will be known as the Hilton Bayfront.

Okan representatives previously told The Next Miami that the tower will top of at 890 feet.

I mean this building has alot of Turkish money going into it since the Turkish market has been tanking.

For an area that had almost nothing a little over 100 years ago, is truly magnificent.

Curious if any of the readers has bought a unit?

If any reader bought a unit, why would they be here commenting before the building is done and they’ve moved in?

Stop being a jerk, that was a good question. I do have clients from Abu Dhabi who are very interested, I am looking forward to showing it one day.

Hey dumb dumb, I hardly doubt that you have clients with the finances to afford living in this building. Furthermore, the difference in showing someone the finished product versus a picture is like looking at a picture of a car on the internet or seeing it in person and test driving it.

Go back to sleep, you’re stupid beyond belief.

Any news on when Marriott Worldcenter will file for a construction permit? Seems like there’s no way that project will breakground before the end of 2018.

Makes sense – get Lira’s out ASAP and invest is safe Dollar-based asset. They’re almost not moving fast enough on this… go! go! go!

Hopefully they don’t pull a PMG and chop the top off like Echo Brickell.

Bring on the down-votes.

Not the best location (in my opinion) for a super-high end tower. Needs to be closer to water.

Bayfront? It’s a full 4 blocks away. How about just Hilton Downtown.
