Approved: Miami Plaza At 368 Feet, Downtown 5th At 495 Feet

Approved: Miami Plaza At 368 Feet, Downtown 5th At 495 Feet

Three Melo Group towers were granted Federal Aviation Administration approval last week.

The first, Miami Plaza, was approved for a height of 368 feet above ground, or 381 feet above sea level. The project also received final approval from Miami’s Planning & Zoning Department last week.

Also receiving approval was a twin-tower project called Downtown 5th. It is approved at 495 feet above ground, or 508 feet above sea level.

As of yesterday, a construction permit has been applied for at Miami Plaza and is pending review. Site work has not yet started, however.

Miami Plaza is planned as a 35-story apartment tower with 437 apartments and a token amount of retail. Downtown 5th will include twin 50-story towers, with an unknown number of apartments.

Please no. Mimo has character, history and architecture. Melo, while filling in empty lots, does it with shoddy design and craftsmanship. There’s a place for this, and Mimo shouldn’t be it. Let him fill in gaps between downtown and midtown, and keep his white boxy uninspired buildings to one area.

Mimo has character history and architecture and some ugly buildings shopping centers and empty lots. so the great architecture is not attracting too many visitors, its not a tourist attraction i hope i live long enough to see some development in this area and don’t have to keep dreaming about seeing this area turned into the next hot spot

do you go to Mimo every weekend to look at the vagabond motel?. great architecture alone won’t attract visitors, we need to have good restaurants, nightclubs,shopping centers bars ect,ect. Mimo does n’t have any of that. that area needs more density and foot traffic to atract investment. i would like to see some development soon in that area. Major developers won’t build there because they want to maximize their profits by building skyscrappers and that is not allowed and it would destroy the character of the neighborhood so i don’t see as a bad option that melo builds in that area

Both projects look like a great addition to the “RENTAL MARKET” in the Downtown Area, this is the kind of projects that will provide much needed housing to the people who want or “NEED” to live in this area, and don’t have the means to come in with 25% cash on 600 dollars the square foot “CONDOS” being built around downtown. Kudos to the Melo and keep up the great job!!!!

This will activate a pretty boring area, I’m glad that this is coming to the neighborhood.

If you haven’t driven next to the plaza site you have no clue how awful that area is, especially a few streets west. Nobody in their right mind would walk around there especially at night its a total disaster – there was a recent article in the herald about all the hepatitis and hiv cases rising due to all the needles getting used under the overpass the cops even had to close 4 streets to try and clean things up! So when anyone complains about boxy melo buildings what else did you expect a waldorf astoria? Get real…

Damn Melo why not just give us a 1000 footer? What’s with yall and these twin tower podium in the middle buildings?

Gotta provide parking for nearly 1000 cars somehow.

Melo either has no interest or no knowledge on undertaking a building like that. You can’t simply copy plans for a 1000 foot building and repaint the outside and reconfigure the windows/balconies. That’s Melo’s “secret” and why he can get these things done so quickly.

And if we to continue waiting for you, these areas where Melo is building in would still be vacant and bleak.

I was wondering when the ugly building comments would start rolling in. In the future can we just assume you don’t like the buildings? It will waste less bandwidth. LOL

Melo builds, but i do not care about the designs, we are letting the core of our city be so uniform, it is just sad

Would you rather wait until another developer decides to invest or leave the area to continue rotting like its been for as long as anyone can remember? Theyre servicable units needed to infuse density before introducing higher end biildings as the area matures…that area is literally a dumpster fire right now!

Awful, cluttered. Come back taller with better architecture, especially adjacent to Okan Tower. It should be like Aria.

Okan will never be built.

Those Turks better do something, they spent a lot of money for that plot of land.

What an ugly building. Why is Miami stuck in the 80s.

Because you haven’t become a developer yet to show the city how buildings should look.

Because there’s no gutsy developers who dare to be different.
It’s unfortunate though

No, it’s because the city allows it. If they would demand greater variety in design and architecture, it would weed out much of the riff raff. It leaves the impression that those responsible in voting for approval are paid for doing so.

Geezzz.. Miami is so far behind places like Tokyo in highrises to the point that virtually any announced new building proposal is referred to as being “UGLY” to these clueless people who think they are living in a “World Class City.”

I do not agree that it’s Ugly. It’s a rental building and I didn’t see nicer rentals in this city.
