Demolition Underway At Site Of 29-Story Uni Apartment Tower

Demolition is underway at the site where the 29-story Uni apartment tower is planned, according to photos by Ryan RC Rea.

According to Miami Building Department records, a demolition permit was issued on March 10.

There is also a construction permit pending to begin building the new apartment tower, but it isn’t yet approved. It was first applied for in early 2020.

According to a UDRB filing, Uni will include:

  • 252 rental apartments
  • 38,307 square feet of office on the top four floors
  • 224 parking spaces
  • 4,500 square feet commercial space

However, the construction permit lists just 9,340 square feet of office. The commercial space and apartment count remains the same.

The tower is planned to top off at 360 feet.

First Florida is listed as the construction contractor.

I love Melo, but wasn’t it NR Investments who started this area? They did Canvas, Filling Station, etc. Even created the term “Arts and Entertainment District”

Very good. The block will be fine. The biggest building that appears in the renders is the Canvas and it’s ready.

Gorgeous building but Wow! It’s going to be located very very close to Canvas, that sucks. Architects/Designers, don’t you think people would rather have more privacy from their home? And what about the sun by the pool?

the only thing they care about is how much money they make from the development

I think architects/designers know a thing or two about urban living. If you’re concerned about privacy, move to a two acre lot in Kendall.

As good as it gets

Glad to see this side of town getting more infills.
Lots more needed. It’s a wonderful location with access to Metromover.

Right next to a building with a bunch of empty lots nearby. I would be mad if I were living in that building.

Do not understand how and why Cra funding of $14 million is involved with a private for profit developer.
What does cra receive in return after giving up this nice sum?
