Citadel has submitted an application to build a seawall at their Brickell property where they are planning an iconic headquarters building.
The permit request was filed with Miami Dade’s Division of Environmental Resources Management.
In a September 22 letter from DERM to Citadel’s Gerald Beeson, the county requested additional details and drawings before it would approve the plan.
Among the requests: a coral relocation plan, and plans for riprap boulders to create a new habitat for invertebrates and small fish, while also protecting the seawall.
DERM also said it noticed various submerged debris, including metal, net, pile, and a sign which must be removed within 30 days.
The permit is not for vessel mooring; That request may come in the future under a separate permit.
Citadel is planning a $1 billion complex on the site, possibly rising above 1,000 feet. Ken Griffin, the billionaire founder of the company, has said that “nothing will compare” to the new tower.
