Demolition Permit Submitted At 1400 Biscayne, Where 57-Story Casa Bella Tower Planned

A demolition permit has just been submitted at 1400 Biscayne, where the 57-story Casa Bella by B&B Italia is planned.

The developers of Casa Bella also began the process of converting reservations into contracts last week, according to social media posts. More than 60% of units have been reserved, the developer’s in-house sales team said last month.

The demolition permit was applied for on June 23.  Total demolition is planned, the permit states.

A total of 249,978 square feet will be demolished, at an estimated cost of $800,000, according to the filing.

The building that will be demolished is 3 stories, with mostly office use.

The BG Group is the demolition contractor.

Groundbreaking on the new tower is planned before year end, according to Casa Bella’s in-house sales team.

i’m glad to see things are moving and this tower hopefully breaks ground soon. this tower will look great at street level and it will overshadow some of the modest towers on this area and will improve the skyline on the edgewater side

What about tapering, spires, peaks or some other architectural detail that breaks the flat tops that are all the cereal boxes we have. If you need to be enlightened about this, you probably shouldn’t be on this site at all.

it’s always the same comments complaining about ” the cereal boxes ” .Miami has many buildings that are not cereal boxes but they are so obsessed with the cereal boxes that they see a box in every tower in miami. they call the miami skyline ” boring ” but the reality is that the only great skylines in the usa are the NYC and Chicago skylines. the skylines that could run for third place are LA , SF , Seattle , Dallas and Houston .those skylines have about 8 or 9 nice high rises which is about the same number of nice high rises that miami has and most of the nice towers on these skylines are glass boxes and the rest of the buildings are very modest so they are not any better than the buildings you see in miami.they call rectangular buildings ” mediocre” but there are rectangular buildings that are iconic like the seagram building in NYC the New york times building and the Aon center in chicago.I think those whiners should give it a rest , if they don’t like what’s being built in miami , they should visit other blogs of cities they think have better architecture than miami. these whiners never see anything positive about what’s being built in this city and they just bore you with the same negative comments

while i agree, i would just like to say that the other person’s comment isn’t completely wrong. most buildings in the miami skyline are mostly rectangular with intricate designs on their shells to make them seem more detailed and impressive (which definitely works). but it can start to feel a bit repetitive. i would like to see more variation is the shape of the buildings themselves, like the okan tower, the aston martin residences, and 300 biscayne. it still preserves the elegance and aesthetic that our skyline has but also adds more variety to it. i was really hoping that the resorts world miami project that was proposed a while back would come to fruition because the towers in that complex were so interesting and fun to look at. they would’ve added differentiation to the skyline while still blending well with the existing structures

Finally, a nice looking tower fronting Biscayne Blvd., instead of the not so good looking towers further north.

I think you mean the ugly towers further south built around the FTX arena. Those are just giant eyesores.

Beautiful evolving skyline. Sad to see that Gentings coral relief inspired buildings, as well as Skyrise not in photos of the future skyline.

The Genting resort casino, too bad. That ugly designed Skyrise structure, glad it didn’t get built.

Some of the worst flooding happens there. Hopefully the new people moving there get the memo otherwise they are in for a nasty surprise.

Hopefully they pour some of that money into fixing the issue, at least around the building.

The building is dated, harking back to the Fountainebleu days, but there is nothing wrong with that. Much better than the dominoes box it is replacing. But I’m sorry to see the mini-theater complex in the back go. Hopefully the concept will be re-born in a more visible location.

It’s a copy of regalia. Just rectangular instead of square
