Two demolition permits have been applied for at 1836 Biscayne, where a 40-story residential tower is planned.
Both permit applications were submitted to Miami’s Building Department on April 14.
According to the first permit filing, total demolition of a 2,700 square foot building is planned.
The second permit application is for partial demolition of 4,363 square feet, at an estimated cost of $122,000.
Kast Construction is listed as the contractor on both filings
There are two buildings currently on the site, according to county property records.
One dates to 1964 and has around 3,030 square feet, while the second dates to 1926 and has 16,935 square feet (it is designated historic).
A construction permit for a 40-story tower was applied for in September, and is continuing to move through the review process as of this month.
The plan is to preserve and renovate the historic church building, while adding the 40-story tower next to and above it.
