Demolition has commenced at the Empire World Towers site at 330 Biscayne Boulevard.
An 11-story office building with 132,409 square feet of interior space is being torn down. It has been vacant for years.
Records show that a permit for interior demolition has been approved, while a permit for total demolition is pending.
Developer PMG bought the property late last year for $80 million. They plan to announce a signature condo tower for the site in early 2016. A separate, 464-unit rental building called Vice is planned at the rear of the property
