Demolition began this morning at Brickell’s Starlite Motel, new photos by Phillip Pessar show.
In November 2022, Chicago-based Focus paid $28 million for the property.
A demolition permit was issued the same month.
Focus is planning 300 apartments on the property. It isn’t clear if plans have been filed yet with planners.
The Starlite Motel had 60 units, according to property records.
