Crews Demolish 92-Year-Old Building At 2500 Biscayne To Make Way For Apartment Building

A 92-year-old building on Biscayne Boulevard has been partially demolished to make way for a rental building.

The demolished building was built in two phases. A 1923 building known as the Wolpert Apartments had a historic designation removed in 2004 after the property owners appealed. A 1927 commercial building fronting Biscayne Boulevard retains a historic designation.

New York Developer Greystone received approval last Fall to build a 20-story apartment building that integrates a portion of the historic building. The project will include 156 luxury rental units.

Behar Font & Partners of Coral Gables is the architect.
