Construction Permit Pending For 573-Foot Tower At 400 Biscayne

Developer PMG and Greybrook appear to be moving fast to begin construction on a 49-story tower at 400 Biscayne.

Construction permits are now pending, including a phased foundation permit and a permit for the actual mixed-use tower.

Some activity already appears to be taking place at the site, where demolition and site clearing began in December.

On April 17, Miami’s Urban Development Review Board voted to recommend that Miami’s Planning & Zoning Department approve the project. The vote was 4-1, with the sole negative vote complaining about the dark colors proposed for the tower, according to Miami Today.

According to the construction permit, a total of 1,001,500 square feet will be built in the new tower, at a cost of $175,262,501. The project will include 714 residential units, the permit application states (those numbers may have been placeholders, with the UDRB application listing 646 residential units).

John Moriarty & Associates is listed as the contractor.

I can’t wait to see more parks and pedestrian options coming to Miami. You can’t have a major city with just a pile of buildings, you must provide amazing public transportation, beautiful big parks, pedestrian options and more bike lanes. Miami is becoming great, let’s make it even greater!! 🙂

With these crook politicians it’s hard to see parks and all those nice services. They can make more money from developers to build buildings

He must be new in town, there’s vacant parks all over the city and I guess somebody told him it’s safe riding bicycles in the streets of Miami.

I am not new and I ride my bike. Those “parks” suck and are not at the level we are bringing Miami to. You people can’t think forward and that’s the issue here

Ha!.. I bet you know when and where to ride that bike. And aren’t you the vain one? Those “parks suck?” And forgive us backwards thinking “dumb bumpkins” but I think Miami has quite a bit more pressing issues to deal with than some, what you would call, “pretty parks.”

Why live in a big city downtown if your passion is parks and bicycling? Makes no sense. Nothing at all wrong with liking parks or bicycling, but those are more suburban pursuits.

Better not hold you breath while you wait. This bunch of city politicos purchase land for a park? Or ask for land from developers for a park? You kiddin’ me? They can’t even manage the little bay front parkland that they have.
World class….my ass.

Instead of that “mural” cant they make a nicer, corner facade? So that its not just a flat wall with a picture on it? I would hope they wont put up adverts

Hanging gardens would be nice and the greenery would balance the dark tones of the upper tower..

I’ve always said, exposing the parking garage like One Biscayne Tower and buildings of yesteryear, and covering it with a grate to allow a vertical garden looks better than any tacky mural or what ends up as a gloried billboard.

There should be more light blue and yellow buildings too.

Agree. Like the lightness of Miami’s skyline, but some variation keeps it interesting.

Looking at the plans the church is spread across multiple levels with the main sanctuary being on the 8th floor. Good luck moving hundreds of parishioners around with two elevators.. not sure how this would be functional.

Did you forget how tall the parking garage is? Most parishioners will likely drive up to the 9th level & enter the Sanctuary directly through the ( 2 ) double-door entrances. There’s also a garage entrance to the Mezzanine, and multiple stairwells in case of fire.

It’s actually a very clever use of space, given that rebuilding the Church was a requirement from the get-go.

No mention to what levels of parking are for residents vs church goers, will be interesting to see how it turns out.

Anybody knows what the plans are for the parking in front of the AAA? Parking? Park? Building (hope not)?

I don’t think they would build there and block the views of MWC, those units would substantially decrease in value.

I hope they put a building there with more parking under for the arena. Too bad all these beautiful buildings will be blocked by the ugly Skyrise

It’s owned by Chateau Group. They are busy building in Sunny Isles, we’ll have to wait for the next major cycle in condo construction, say early to mid 20s…

Thanks for the info. I hope they make it into a park, even elevated with the parking still under. It would be a shame to see a building coming up there also.

I swear, you “park people” are ridiculous! Across the street there is a park outside of the Frost Science Museum named Maurice Ferre park, another one named Bayfront park, and down the street there is the Brickell Point park. Also, on the side of I-395 there is another park.

Geez how many parks do you want in one area?

I thought that surface lot was the controversial MDC land.

Shame on the Miami Urban Development Review Board for approving this building. It is one of the most anti urban buildings to be designed for Downtown. The base of this tower, mostly a parking garage with some surface applied “distraction”, does little to engage with Biscayne Blvd., pedestrians or its corner site.
