Aston Martin Residences Sales Center About To Be Demolished, Water Feature Planned

The sales center at Aston Martin Residences is closing for demolition, according to a social media post by in-house broker Juliao Group.

A water feature will be built in place of the sales center, the post said.

Building Department records show that a permit for total demolition was applied for on May 17, and is pending review.

According to the permit, a total of 9,731 square feet will be demolished at a cost of $110,500. Thunder Demolition is listed as the contractor.

There are now about 17 condo units remaining to sell at Aston Martin Residences, out of 391 units being built, the broker said.

The sales center itself has seen 12,600 visitors since opening, and will reopen in another location.

Aston Martin is the tallest ever condo tower built in Miami, at 816 feet above ground. Completion is scheduled for later this year.

What was your expectation of keeping it open while the building was under construction? You do know you can also just walk on the sidewalk.

How about a water feature AND public sculpture?

It is one of the most beautiful towers in Miami, on the edge of the Miami River and will certainly be one of the most photographed, making the Miami skyline even more beautiful and the most desired city. That’s why it all comes at a high price. If it was more of a cereal box, in a dull location, it would certainly have a more affordable price, as some here complain.

Nothing wrong with having glass boxes though. They enhance the skyline. Just look at NYC and Chicago.

This is my favorite building in miami now, one of the very few to really make an impact in the skyline.

We need a water feature next to water? I suppose my mind might change when I see some renderings and/or site plan demonstrating it won’t be a giant homeless urinal and bath at the same time.

By what? Refusing to build millionaire housing so they can buy up all the middle class housing such as in LA or SF? I guess we should build “affordable housing” right on the water in the center of downtown in one of the most desirable cities in the US that makes alot of sense. Just increase density and build better public transit if you want to see more affordable housing.

Affordable housing should never be in prime locations.

No, it should be. Housing should be mixed in urban areas! It’s essential for workers, including service, to be near their places of work.

this is waterfront property, the county/city could get more taxes / rents out of AT MARKET RATE UNITS. Not subsidized units on the water.

Its called mass transit you can get from dadeland to downtown in less than 20 mins using it, we need a network that goes out west and allow for high rises at every station. Your ideas of how housing works has utterly ruined the affordability of every city its been implemented in.

Youre wrong on this one. The goal is to have good transit to get people around the city. if you put affordable housing on this location you would certainly get wayyyyyy less in real estate taxes

No the goal of transit is to reduce traffic in a city and to allow for individuals the opportunity to commute to work from areas outside of a higher cost of living. (your trading time by commuting with cost of owning a car or living in the urban core)

No it isn’t.
You WANT society to be a utopia, but it isn’t.
It is NOT essential. It is wanted, and would be a “nice to have” housing in urban areas.

Every million dollar apartment throws off about $20,000 in property tax revenue to the local government EVERY year. a $5M apartment throws off $100,000 EVERY year.

“Affordable Housing” does not generate any money for the community, rather, it is the opposite. It costs money.

Of course, our society should help those that need assistance. But it is important to be smart in the way that resources are allocated so that land can be utilized for it’s highest and best use.

Multi-million dollar condos should be on the waterfront. Affordable housing should be on a Metrorail line somewhere where the land does not cost over $100M per acre.
