Construction Permit Created For Second 648-Foot Miami River Tower

Another tower at the Miami River complex is set to move to the permitting phase.

Miami Building Department records show that a construction permit process was created for the second tower in May. It is not yet in review, with full plans still not submitted.

The second tower will rise 54 stories or 648 feet, according to the construction permit filing. That is identical in height to the first tower now under construction.

Tower 2 will include 468 residential units, and 6975 square feet of retail.

As with the first tower, GT McDonald is listed as the contractor.

The first two phases at Miami River are already under construction, with Tower 1 now around five stories out of the ground. In addition to a residential tower, multiple commercial buildings and a riverwalk are being built.

Eventually, the project will have 1,678 residential units, 330 hotel rooms, 196,882-square-feet of retail space, and 98,040-square-feet of office space, according to a utilities agreement.

Chetrit Group is the developer, with Kobi Karp the architect.

Sensational. Miami River becoming the most beautiful river in the USA. Imagine walking in the evening on the sidewalk, seeing the waters of the river, the yachts, the new buildings, such as Aston Martim, Baccarat, the new Hyatt towers (hopefully they are approved) and these towers in this article.

Um, doesn’t hold a candle to Chicago’s Riverwalk. That place is amazing.

Agreed. Miami is heading the right direction but Chicago is just jaw dropping. Not only in the US but world wide. Certainly Miami should try to emulate it.

Miami river is extremely polluted. Do some research before you start making comments.

Let’s go! Keep expanding west until we make Little Havana beautiful.

Still plenty of vacant lots and redevelopment opportunities in West Brickell, as run-down historic buildings in Little Havana are more logical for restoration before “expanding west” without any infrastructure improvements (i.e, Metrorail extention west, underground utility poles, and better drainage). Otherwise, you get boring boxes and garages on jagged lot assemblages.

Dude get over the “Save Little Havana” mantra which sounds like “we did a thing”. The buildings in Little Havana are run down, but they are not historic. Those boxes are a solution to a lack of housing and you’re more interested in saving some one and two story eye sores.

Bro you have no idea what makes a city

Pretty sure I do ‘bro’. Serve the needs of the people and foster growth. It’s more important than memorializing some cultural/political ideal for a neighborhood that has changed and is changing culturally, is the crux of the city, and acts as the gateway to downtown and Brickell. NYC was a mess of wooden shanties up through Brooklyn, the west side and Harlem on central park in the 1800s. Imagine someone saying “save the Harlem farms and Brooklyn shanties”… There would be no NYC today. You have no sense of the fourth dimension and no moniker.

Which tower is under construction? Is it the elliptical one? Looking forward to a new seawall as well!

There’s a rendering that shows an almost identical tower as the first one currently being built being connected via a walkway suspended above SW 6th St. I’ll try to share in the comments, but essentially this second permit will not be directly on the riverfront. Total 4 towers will be built.

Right now, Miami need to get busy on building a Resort Casino downtown or somewhere like the design district… preferably near a Metromover stop.

For all you people that gave this comment a “thumb down” vote, if you don’t like casinos, then don’t go to them. Its just like Chicago.. if you don’t like Chicago, then don’t go there, and believe me, plenty of visitors go there and the city is not lacking tourism .

Its as simple as that.

Wasting time inside a casino blowing money on stupid card games and lame slots and wheels is the definition of boring. Move your degenerate gambler self to Vegas or Reno if that’s what your life revolves around. Miami has far more to offer. Vegas has no choice but to offer casinos because without that it’s just a barren desert wasteland. Miami has choices.

And there are already casinos here. Why do people think one deserves to be downtown on the water…

How about Hialeah? A casino would fit right in with that population. Not so much the urban core.

Every time I see your comment I write to the city commission urging them to reject any proposal for a casino downtown or anywhere near it. 🙂
