Construction Permit For 42-Story Tower Completes First Review Cycle

Miami’s Building Department is processing construction and demolition permits for a property where a 42-story tower is planned.

The master construction permit for the new tower has just completed its first cycle of review, while a total demolition permit is not yet in review.

Kaufman Lynn is listed as the contractor on both permits.

According to the construction permit filing, the tower will include:

  • 631 residential units
  • 5,761 square feet of retail
  • 8 levels of parking

The project was submitted to UDRB review last summer, with Corwil listed as the architect and 16th Street Partners, LLC the developer.

There’s also space on an adjacent site where a second tower can be built.

There are two towers to this development – the second will be built at a later date

Why is the city dragging their feet on the tallest infill in this area filled with empty lots.

There’s places where more people live and work that probably need more attention.

The CRA had magnificent plans, which were derailed about ten years ago for silly reasons.

We don’t need more gunmetal grey paint.

You’re right for this area, it should be lower and warm. Thought it was closer to the modern sleek areas in downtown and Brickell.

Subtle curves, a covered podium, and symmetrical. Solid, but what should be the bare minimum, I would say. Not to keen on the color scheme either.

Wow, people from the Canvas building are going to lose their west view (after they lost the north one).

At least they’re getting a view of another decent tower… and not a Melo building.

Not bad for the melo district. Austin seems to have a higher quality skyline though.

It’s too tall for being able in such a historical area above downtown.

It would have been historical forty years ago, before practically everything was demolished and turned into a wasteland. Frankly, this is the right area to transition from high-rise to mid-rise Wynwood.

I agree it should be used to transition downtown to Wynwood. Shame it used be historic and dense and got demolished though
