A demolition permit has been applied for at One Bayfront Plaza.
The application was submitted April 6 but never finalized, so it isn’t clear if it is for total demolition of a 19-story building currently on the site. It is the first construction or demolition permit for the building since 2012 and 2014, when permits to build an antenna were applied for.
Last month, developer Florida East Coast Realty started to notify tenants about the intention to demolish the building, manager Jerome Hollo told Miami Today.
Leases expire in the second or third quarter of 2019, at which time demolition will begin.
A 92-story to 100-story tower is planned at 1,049 feet above ground. It will include 1,361 residential units, 534,379 square feet of class A office, 210 hotel rooms, and 101,650 square feet of retail, and 2,117 parking spaces. There will also be an observation deck on top.
Completion is estimated for 2023.
