A construction permit to build a surface parking lot at the former Skyrise site has been submitted to Miami’s Building Department.
Last year, the developer of the Skyrise tower announced that the project was being cancelled.
Under the terms of a deal negotiated with the city, a parking lot is required to be restored if the development wasn’t built.
Bayside’s owners were granted the rights to two multi-decade lease extensions for the mall property in exchange for allowing the Skyrise project.
According to the construction permit application, there is an estimated $200,000 cost to build the parking lot.
Plans for the surface lot were filed in December 2021 as part of the construction permit application, and are still under review.
The property was previously a surface parking lot, before sitework for Skyrise began.
