Downtown Miami’s proposed One Bayfront Plaza supertall may be in redesign, a new social media post from an architect suggests.
ODP Architects uploaded a rendering of what appeared to be One Bayfront Plaza on Instagram last week.
The Southeast Financial Center, which is across from the OBP site, can be clearly seen in the rendering next to the new tower.
The new rendering is substantially different than previously approved plans for the tower.
In 2017, Miami planners approved a design for the tower by architect KPF.
The local architect of record on the 2017 approval was ODP, so it is possible that the architect was simply rehashing a very early design for the project from years ago.
The most recent activity on development of the 92-story tower came in January 2020, when the FAA approved a height of 1,044 feet above ground, or 1,049 feet above sea level. It was the second time the FAA approved the height, after an earlier approval expired.
There are no demolition or construction permits currently pending for the One Bayfront Plaza site, and there doesn’t appear to have been any new submissions to the Planning Department.
