Demolition Underway At Riverfront Brickell Site Where 44-Story Lofty Tower Planned

Demolition got underway yesterday at the Lofty Brickell site, according to a social media post by the developer.

Miami’s Building Department issued approval on April 28 for total demolition of a building on the site where the 44-story tower is planned.

According to the demolition permit, a total of 20,000 square feet of space is being demolished, at an estimated cost of $105,400.

TBRC Group is listed as the demolition contractor.

There does not yet appear to be a construction permit pending.

The developers of Lofty announced in January that more than half of units had already been sold, even before a sales gallery had opened.

Construction was planned to begin in the the fourth quarter of 2022, according to the January press release.

This is a beautiful development! This section of the river is vastly underutilized. Hopefully this will be a catalyst for more development along Brickell’s riverfront.

Well, somebody is paying for the tear down of the structure that’s on this site now and I really don’t think they’ll be doing that for nothing.

Solid tower with a “necessary evil” parking pedestal that doesn’t look terrible. Forget about the name, however.

I guess those units facing the metro train on that level may be cheaper since they have to deal with that noise and lack of privacy.

Lol, there’s already a line of new yorkers willing to pay double or triple the asking price.

I’ve lived right on the metro before (at Nine) and ended up loving it. It’s really not loud and when you do hear it, it reminds me I’m in a city. Love the city noises.
