Miami’s Building Department has issued a seawall permit at downtown Miami’s Casa Neos site.
Ebsary Foundation Company said in a letter to DERM that it plans to begin construction on September 6.
Separately, revised construction permits for the building itself are being processed (the construction permit in revision was originally issued in 2016).
According to the website of Riviera Dining Group, the project will include a beach club, restaurant, 4-suite hotel, and rooftop lounge.
Opening is scheduled for 2023.
The shell of a building is already on the site, but remains only partially built. Previously, a Sushi Samba was planned.
In May 2021, an affiliate of developer Melo Group sold the property for $9.5. The new owner also operates Mila Restaurant in South Beach.
