Construction Permit Issued At Casa Neos Site In Downtown Miami

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.

Yeah finally something interesting and beautiful, sadly it stands out among pretty much every single thing being built everywhere in this city.

So how are they dealing with the river walk issue?
This project came to a halt because they built the structure over the lot line and it was structurally impeding into the mandatory width of the riverwalk.
Only thing I can think of is that they will try and build out the riverwalk further into the river to get the minimum amount of width necessary.
But the city won’t let them start construction again until they can show how they are meeting the riverwalk requirement.
But it looks like a nice design!

Last I remember they agreed to have the lower level open to the public, but these renders seem to show otherwise…

You can see that even though the building is on the river, the skyline behind is portrayed from the bay. Interesting choice.

Such a beautiful building for a awful location.

This building is hidden and unless you go to a certain part of the river you won’t even know it’s there. So what’s the gripe about?

That is literally their point.

But Anon, the uncompleted building was sold, and if the new owners thought that it was in an awful location, why would they buy it anyway?

One River Point started sales in 2017 and their sales office is closed and have returned all deposits. That project is more than dead!

So this is going to be an ultra luxury, ultra exclusive, ultra high end all-suite motel of sorts?

You left out the words – “Ultra Iconic” also.

If you are able to call 4 suites a “hotel” with a straight face.
Where I come from, 4 units is a Fourplex.

I don’t know why people would pay that much money to stay in a van out by the river when there are so many other more scenic locations in Miami to choose from.

There’s been structural work happening daily for the past 6+ months as there were a lot of cracks in the building from the SE 1st bridge work over the last few years.

This is more like it. Love this design. Much prefer it over the tacky Las Vegas Riverside Wharf design. This is architecture that reflects the heritage of the city.

TBH, without the arches, which make all the difference, it would look like a cold modernist building you could see anywhere.

Plaster, stonework and stone walls, extensive use of natural materials, wood screening – cold and modernist? What building are you looking at?

The original design WAS modernist…. it got changed away from the current trend to this. Frankly with the arches and metal railings it looks circa 1975. But chasing trends can be a fools errand

I wonder what they’re using or storing in the cement walled portion of the building.

I’m Glad the Building Department was firm on this matter as they should be on all Projects.

Yeah, I don’t understand the logic in building a few hotel rooms right where a park should be. It should be demolished or maybe find another use like a station to get on a gondola or sky tram that would circle around the city or take people across the bay.
