Demolition Underway At 400 Biscayne, Where 704 Apartments Planned

Demolition is now underway at 400 Biscayne Boulevard, where one of Miami’s biggest apartment projects is planned.

Developers PMG and Greybrook Realty Partners are preparing to build a tower on the site that will top off at 740 feet above ground, or 750 feet above sea level, according to an FAA application.

The new building will have 704 apartments, according to a county utility filing.

Residents at the new 400 Biscayne tower will have access to premium amenities, including keyless entry, smart home features, and access to co-working space.

The building itself will have bars, restaurant, and retail. It will also include a 20,508 house of worship to replace a church currently on the site.

A second tower is also planned for the site, but details have not yet been announced.

This is a good sign. Hopefully, everything works out in the right way. There seems to be a recession on the way unfortunately. Hopefully Miami isn’t too affected.

More Democrats are praying for a recession than economists are predicting one.

Have you looked at the stock market and real estate market?

He doesn’t care how the stock and real estate markets are looking because Conold Trump is his saviour.

Recessionism is the new Jesus-is-Coming cult for the attention-deficit addled types who are bored with Rising Seas Hysteria.

Liberals invent lidentity politics, are aghast when white people want a seat at the table.

Anonymous

White people have always had a seat at the table (actually the head of the table). It must be painful that demographics are changing that. Don’t feel bad, others have endured this predicament for centuries, and not just Liberals.

Anonymous

Yeah, just like Miami’s changed demographics which stunted the city’s potential in favor of a banana republic for most the last fifty years.

I didn’t realize others feel such a predicament within their homogeneous homelands. No, it’s just the U.S. and Europe which must “change” while the “others” wonder why their homelands they left are still s-holes and blame colonialism fifty years ago forever.

“Liberals invent lidentity politics.”

Yeah.. contrary to conservatives who invented “stereotyping” and “dog whistle” politics.

Anonymous

LOL, liberals are kings of dog whistling, when for years their talk about globalism, diversity, and multiCULTuralism were dog whistles uncovered after everything happening in Europe via the Kalergi Plan, and what Trump has been stopping.

Please.. all I have to say is “welfare or drugs” and conservatives instantly think of black people.

Tell that to people addicted to opiods in the back country. Oh wait, according to you liberals, automatically they’re all a bunch of inbred hillbillies.

Not only are they a bunch of inbred hillbillies addicted to opiods and meth, they’re also Trump voters.

a hole for wanting border security ? mass immigration is detrimental to everything you liberals claim to champion. You’re importing people here to start emitting CO2 at U.S levels, they have less favorable views on gays, more anti-abortion, suppress wages, more patriarchal and many of them have a major disdain for black people.

Anyway, how is Trump’s wall that he said Mexico is going to “pay for,” going?

Anonymous

Mexico pays for the wall with more equal tariffs from the USMCA, and less foreign aid to them and Central America which goes down the toilet.

Nice try parrot.. but Trump threatened a government shutdown if congress didn’t give him five billion dollars for his border wall. See, a lot of us are not as gullible as some of you cons are.

For the money upfront, yes. The wall will pay for itself using the aforementioned in no time. It’s Democraps refusing for any money to go to it all because they want open borders for future votes.

You Repubiconfused like to throw the illegal alien voter crap at the Democrats but it was your God Ronald Reagan who started the illegal alien bum-rush over the border into this country when he gave amnesty to two million Mexicans.

I will take anyone… ANYONE! over Trump. I just want this embarrassing nightmare to be over. And I am an independent who has voted Republican and Democrat all my life. This is not about Party it’s about getting rid of someone who got 3 million votes less in the last election.

MUH POPULAR VOTE! Seriously if you don’t like our electoral system designed to keep incompetent smug assholes like Hillary Clinton and Al Gore out of office, move to Canada already.

I’ll take Hillary Clinton and Al Gore any day over who Mitt Romney warned you what Trump is – A CON-MAN.

Anonymous

Of course you would. You would chose a socialist numbnut like Gillum or Occasional-Cortex, who want free everything and open borders over any Republican.

Why should I listen to a loser like Romney anyway? I certainly don’t listen to losers like Algore and Hillary either.

Anonymous

Yeah.. why listen to Mitt Romney when you have a a conman in the White House who hires and fires people like the mob kill’s their own henchmen. Just ask people like Scaramucci and Sessions.

You’re only saying that because your name is Jesus and they’re replacing a church with a modern building.

The markets are spooked bc the global economy is having issues…EU collapsing, China been slowing down for a while…BUT the US economy is booming…Apple, google, amazon, VW, etc keep talking about new jobs…doesn’t sound like a slow down to me..and real estate is always like that, developers get greedy and over supply.

Funny, you cons wanted Obama’s head when the world was in far less dire straits.

The backlash Obama received nothing compared to the constant TDS the media and soy boy liberals autistically screech everyday.

I laugh at the river of tears when I see you cons boo hooing for Conold Trump. I’m reminded of that old song when Trump gets to whining.. “Charlie Brown, he’s a clown, that Charlie Brown, he’s a clown, you gonna get caught, just you wait an see, (Conold Trump says) whyyyss everybody always pickin on me!”

If that’s what you’re reminded of, then you’re senile.

Senile? If that’s the case, then what is Trump? He’s the one who keeps sqawking about something or someone is out to make him look bad. Yeah, Trump is like Charlie Brown in that song.. “WHYYY’SS EVERYBODY ALWAYS PICKIN ON ME!!!

Are there even any methodists left in Miami?

I have never met a Methodist but in my office of 11 people, we have 1 catholic, 1 Jewish, and 9 self described Atheists. The reason I know this is because we had a meeting on whether to put up decorations. The vote an overwhelming 11 votes to put up both a tree and a menorah. Holidays are great.

Nah, among the hipster-hip, (inconsistent) atheism is naughty and cutting-edge. Or as I like to call them, Moral Therapeutic Deists on scooters.

Yeah.. we’ve seen how deep their morality is when it comes to various staunch theist like the “Right to Life” people who’ll show you how serious there are about preserving life by blowing an abortion clinic while you’re in it.

Pro-aborts love it when abortion clinics are blown up. The killings outside the dismemberment rooms draw attention from the killings inside the dismemberment rooms.

Anonymous

I don’t think that’s a thing anymore. Haven’t heard of an abortion clinic bombing in well over a decade

Anonymous

Yeah, that’s because these Cons went from blowing up abortion clinics in the U.S. to blowing up countries like Iraq.

Anonymous

What? We were blowing up countries years before abortion was legal, courtesy of Democrats like FDR, Truman, and LBJ. Ask people in Dresden and Hiroshima how they feel.

At least we waited to be attacked, unlike Republicans who bomb a country and then bombed it again (mainly for the oil). Just asked that military powerhouse named Grenada how they feel.

Anonymous

We dared to be attacked at Pearl Harbor as an excuse to enter WWII, and I don’t remember Germany and Vietnam attacking us. I can’t believe you’re arguing we should’ve waited until we were bombed…

Anonymous

German U-boats were sinking American supply ships just a few miles off the east coast of the United States. The United States got drawn into WWII after Japan bombed Pearl Harbor. The United States got bogged down in Vietnam in part because of the “anti-socialist” crowd.. you know, nut-bags like you.

And the atheists voted in favor of the mythical chachkies? Who knew?

Holidays are for everyone and a great excuse to buy and get presents, drink lots of eggnog and rum, and enjoy decorations and chachkies. Just because one does not believe in an all mighty Santa Claus or a talking snake or a magical wall does not take away from all the fun.

That is a lot of apartments.. right on Biscayne.. density is coming to downtown.

Its gonna be nice.Biscayne is starting to resemble Michigan Avenue in Chicago. Too bad we dont have the 100 acre Grant Park out front by the water, instead of a once a year marijuana bowl amphitheatre, ya know, where they schedule reggae concerts. Then the rest of the year, the big empty reggae bowl sits empty.

Yeah, shows you how much the city and county has going on it than just a park somewhere by the water.

Ain’t it great!

Nice tower and more importantly seems like it will add to the city living. Aesthetically will also add some height differentiation to that area, which currently doesn’t have anything within ~50 feet I believe

Anonymous

I like the design. I hope we soon get a city within a building concept with everything included..Grocery, retail, services, movie theaters, schools, clinics. One would never has to step out. No need need for cars or ride sharing unless it becomes necessary.

Sounds pretty boring if you ask me.. you’ll be missing out on a lot of beautiful places to visit in South Florida and the Keys.

The irregular balconies ruin it. If that doesn’t change, this could unfortunately become the ugliest building of the Biscayne Wall.

They aren’t irregular, there is a pattern to them.
I personally prefer that to all of them being exactly the same, but I understand your point, too.

Why ruin what could be a solid building with such silly “pizzazz?”
