A demolition banner has just been installed at the One Bayfront Plaza site in Downtown Miami, according to new photos by Phillip Pessar.
An interior demolition permit was approved by Miami’s Building Department on May 1.
The permit is for interior demolition of 278,000 square feet of space, at an estimated cost of $400,000.
B2 Group LLC is listed as the contractor.
County records show that the 19-story building on the site was built in 1958.
There does not yet appear to be any other demolition permits pending, other than for interior work.
Florida East Coast Realty, which has built some of Miami’s most prominent buildings over the decades, is planning a 1,049-foot supertall on the site that will become the city’s tallest.
