Demolition Permit Issued At Site Where 539-Foot Miami Station Planned

A demolition permit was issued yesterday at the site where the 539-foot Miami Station office and residential tower is planned.

City records show that the demolition permit was approved on February 11. It was pulled by the contractor on February 14 and is now active.

A 5-story concrete shell has been on the property since the mid-2000s, and will be demolished at a cost of $153,930. The BG Group is the demolition contractor.

The Logik office tower was once planned on the site and was halted during construction, leaving the empty concrete shell since then.

Developer Related Group is planning a 41-story tower called Miami Station with the following uses, according to a UDRB filing:

  • 200,234 square feet of leasable office space
  • 309 apartments
  • 8,508 square feet of commercial/retail space
  • 510 parking spaces

The tower height on the UDRB filing was listed at 459 feet.

Later, Related filed plans with the FAA increasing the project height to 539 feet above ground. It isn’t clear where the new space will be allocated, or how many floors it will now have.

There does not yet appear to be any construction permit pending for the new tower.

ODP is the architect.

There are major new developments either under construction or planned in nearly every direction from the Miami Station site, including Block 55 across the street.

Build more offices. Oko is leading the way with 830 Brickell.

This is an acceptable location for offices. However, the super towers currently being developed with 2000 apartments is a much better location for offices.

Finally and it will bring so much density to the area with the aldi/target/apartments next door, the current brightline towers and the future mega tall brightline towers.

It seems that the proposed mix of office, residential, retail and parking is perfect for the location, close to Miami’s central station. If not enough, the tower is still beautiful and tall, a beautiful highlight in the region of box buildings.

It’s still a box. I hope the extra height a slanted crown or something, at least.

The box design serves it’s purpose as an office/retail building. A crown or any design just adds to the construction cost for the developer when it’s really not needed.

Looks more like Luma without balconies, and instead some diagonal lines.

I could have designed that better. Really boring, a big egg crate.

Plenty in liberty city, literally thousands of brand new apartments coming online there this year. Miami is more than brickell and some parts of downtown and wynwood.

Not to mention Opa-Locka, Northside, and Brownsville, all within walking distance to Tri-Rail and Metrorail.
