Two rental projects in and adjacent to Midtown Miami with a combined 650 units may be a step closer to beginning work after filing for construction permits.
According to a construction permit filed last month, AMLI Residential will spend $36 million to build 208 rental apartment units in an eight story building on the Chiquita site (the project is restricted in height).
AMLI paid $55 million for the property with fully approved plans in November 2015.
The smaller south phase is being built first, according to the permit application. A second phase will bring the unit count to around 700 apartments.
For Midtown 6, a phased foundation permit is pending. That project will have 447 units in a 31-story tower.
John Moriarty and Associates is listed the contractor for AMLI. James McHugh is the contractor for Midtown 6.
