Miami’s Building Department has just approved a permit to demolish a 3-story office building at 1400 Biscayne Boulevard.
The approval was granted on January 30 (permit fees are still awaiting payment). At least some tenants have already moved out.
According to the demolition permit filing, a total of 249,978 square feet will be demolished, at an estimated cost of $800,000.
The BG Group is the demolition contractor.
Related Group and Alta Developers are planning a 57-story residential condo tower called Casa Bella by B&B Italia to replace the office building.
The developers previously filed a site plan in 2015 for three towers on the property.
A construction permit for the 312-unit Casa Bella tower was applied for in September and has been under active review in recent days. A private provider is being used to expedite review.
