Demolition is about to begin at the site where Turkish developer Okan Group plans a 73-story tower, just one month after it was approved by the Urban Development Review Board.
On October 25, Miami officials approved a permit for total demolition at the 35,995 square foot site. Thunder Demolition is listed as the contractor, with an estimated cost of $42,000.
The contractor also filed for a permit to remove 26 trees on October 31. That request remains pending review by Environmental Resources.
The address of the owner is shared by Okan International University in Dania Beach.
