Demolition About To Begin At Site Where 41-Story Miami Station Planned

A 5-story parking garage is about to be demolished to make way for the 41-story Miami Station tower, according to a new filing by developer Related Group.

Related will begin total demolition of a vacant garage currently on the site, including slabs and foundation, a Notice of Commencement states. The document was recorded on October 20.

The 5-story garage is all that remains from the Logik office tower project, which halted construction during the recession in the mid-2000s.

Since then, the concrete shell has never been used.

Earlier this year, Related submitted plans to combine the Logik property with a site next door for the 41-story Miami Station.

According to plans submitted to the Urban Development Review Board, Miami Station is proposed to include:

  • 200,234 square feet of leasable office space
  • 309 apartments
  • 8,508 square feet of commercial/retail space
  • 510 parking spaces

The tower height is listed at 459 feet.

Another major mixed-use project, Block 55, is under construction across the street, and will include large retail and residential components.

BG Group is the demolition contractor at Miami Station.

Overtown is growing beautifully. This area should be filled with offices and further west we should have bars and restaurants.

“Sleek” isn’t what I would call box with diagonal lines. It needs a sloped roof, at least.

Great location. A block or two from Brightline Miami Central Station, metromover, and metrorail. Let’s look at how we can further reduce the amount of space dedicated to car parking, and all the externalities that it brings.

This is in Overtown, not Downtown

splitting hairs – any downtown of any major city contains a bunch of subset neighborhoods.
Ever been to downtown NYC? financial district; batery park cit; soho; lower east side; greenwich village; Chinatown, etc – all considered a part of Downtown NYC.

Well you could call the Financial District of Lower Manhattan as strictly “Downtown NYC” or all of Manhattan up to Central Park. Large cities are polycentric without defined centers.

In Miami’s case, historically Brickell and Park West weren’t considered part of downtown, but now encompass “Greater Downtown Miami.”

No, Overtown starts at NW 8th and goes north from there, by the Lyric theater. This planned building is on NW 6th, which is still Downtown.

No, Overtown starts on 6th which is why 3 Miami Central is considered to be in Overtown.

It makes you wonder why an abandoned construction site isn’t covered top to bottom in graffiti, yet anywhere within a block radius of a Mana-owned property looks like 1970s NYC.

Great… westward expansion into an area that was left to rot after the freeway sliced through another historically black community; now experiencing gentrification because newcomers need a place to live. I am sick of the schizophrenic nature of my hometown wanting to be ‘like other big cities’ the majority of those who’ve been suffering through the divestment, not be able to benefit from all the growth and excitement most of the other posters see as a FAB-U-LOUS thing. Yeah, wonder-freakin’-ful.

Boohoo. The freeway sliced through Boca Raton, yet it’s been doing just fine. Can’t blame it on a freeway.

Also, you DO NOT have some birthright to live in a certain neighborhood just because you and the 2 generations before you happened to have been popped out in it. Free market—those that can PAY to live there, can live there.

Please explain what is stopping you from ” benefiting from all the growth and excitement ” ?

Umm. As a native Miamian from early 1960’s, we have now entered into 2021 and times are a bit different. Our population and happy immigrants all coming with new families have changed our “little city”.
Sorry, but, get use to it or move to Jackson MS (or elsewhere).

Historic revisionism, Miami was a major metropolis before 1959, just like Boston for years before the Irish and Portland before San Fransicko transplants.

Good proposed development. If a crime-infested neighborhood sits and rots for decades because of the criminality of it’s population scaring away investment, then whatever/whoever later lifts it up and begins to invest in it, is a good thing. Investment and neighborhood improvement starts with gentrification. That’s a good thing…unless of course you are endeared to crime-infested neighborhoods…in which case…move to Baltimore.
