Construction Permit For 70-Story Okan Tower Set To Be Activated

A construction permit for the 70-story Okan Tower in downtown Miami appears set to be activated.

A request to activate the permit was made last night (December 7), city records show. The request is now pending approval.

The permit had fallen into inactive status during the pandemic, when permitting activity by the developer was halted. Activation will allow for review by Miami’s Building Department to resume.

A sales office for Okan also opened last month, following a hiatus during the pandemic.

Okan representatives said in November that they are now ready to move construction forward, with groundbreaking scheduled for June 2022.

Buyers of condo units at Okan are now going straight to contract due to the expedited timeline.

Okan Tower will include:

  • 163 residential condos
  • 236 condo-hotel residences
  • A five-star Hilton Hotel & Resort with 316 rooms

Okan Tower is planned to be built in a tulip shape that will rise 902 feet above ground, or 915 feet above sea level. That would make it taller than any existing building in Miami today.

If they start construction on this building, I hope it shuts up a lot of the naysayers who come on this site.

I think most projects will start, this one is dragging their feet to much though and their sales center even closed.

Honestly, they never had a scantily clad saxophonist, so we just never knew if they were serious or not.

Downtown taking off 🚀 I find it funny that such developers would put such a luxury property in this area across from a prison and not closer to Biscayne Blvd/Brickell, but regardless I love that density is spreading west to I-95 and around transit.

This is the kind of architecture we must demand from developers and our city. Luckily it’s tall enough to bust through the sea of Melo mediocrity.

Okan makes the list of the most beautiful buildings in the city, along with Aston Martin and One Thousand Museum. These two are luxury buildings, with fantastic views and high prices. At Okan, you can live well, in a beautiful building, for a lower price. This tower will stand out in the future as it will be surrounded by other square and boring buildings.

No, but the same happened to Panoramic Tower. It took forever to be actually built, and people were skeptical.

It was dead before the 2016 election when professional agitators at MoveOn made Macy’s and various building license holders try to cancel him, and he still won… Wait, you think Russia stole the election, meanwhile Brandon granted Putin a waiver for a natural gas line and won’t life a finger when he invades Ukraine.

Right, because the Doral Country Club was so fresh, it wasn’t about to close and sit abandoned through another contentious golf course conversion.
