Chateau Group Renewing Approval To Build 700-Foot Towers At 600, 700 Biscayne

Chateau Group is requesting permission from the FAA to build two 700-foot towers at 600 Biscayne Boulevard and 700 Biscayne Boulevard.

Two separate condo towers had been proposed for the sites in the mid-2000s, including a controversial proposal behind and adjacent to the Freedom Tower. The properties were later acquired by Chateau Group, and are used for surface parking an billboard advertising.

In 2013, the FAA issued approval to build up to 700 feet on both sites. An extension was granted in 2015, but the approval is set to expire in January 2017.

With both of these sites developed, we would move closer to connecting the skyline by Park West with Everglades on the Bay!

ChateauGroup should partner with Gary Nader and his Latin American Art Museum concept he envisioned at MDC site down the Boulevard. Perfect size lot for LAAM at 700 Biscayne Blvd.

Chateau was waiting for Miami Worldcenter to finally get started. They can sell for much higher price with a 2 billion dollar investment next door.

In 2013 FAA issued approval to build up to 700 feet on both sites. After 4 years nothing was build on both sites.Now, CHATEAU
group,renewing approval,to build
up to 700 feet,on same sites.How many more years,does CHATEAU group need,to start building anything on these sites???? Next 5,10 or 15 years????
UNBELIEVABLE!!!!
This portion of Biscayne blvd.has been same garbage for 50 years now,and this is the picture of Miami skylines we put on postcards. In the meantime the whole Brickell area was built,and nobody can actually see it, just because is somehow “behind”,hidden . This part of Biscayne bulevard, with Bayside Market and Bayside Park is Miami center,Miami heart and soul,it should be built as priority,NOW,
ASAP,no more time to waste.

I suggest you buy the two sites and build the towers yourself…

I have to agree with you, every time I’m in the car with someone visiting from big cities outside the US, and we drive up Biscayne Blvd it is hard to explain why it looks so empty and soulless, despite it being our MAIN boulevard. It doesn’t make sense.

It makes a lot of sense to me. It’s soul-less because people in the U.S. love to live in soul-less cities. The ideal place for them to live is a gated community. Look at the fastest growing cities in FL: Miramar, Orlando, Pembroke Pines.
Hello??????
More explaining????

I have to agree with you. Those American soul-less cities in suburbia are a petri dish for Serial Killers

Mr. DreTheOne, I have news for you….
Only people coming from big cities?
Any city of 150,000 people or more in Europe looks bigger and more accomplished than most U.S. cities of 6Million or bigger.
