An 18-story apartment tower in Overtown called Soleste Grand Central is one step closer to beginning work after the developer applied for a demolition permit.
On November 20, Estate General Contractor filed for a permit to demolish “miscellaneous structures” on the 1.23 acre project site at 218 NW 8th Street. Total demolition cost is estimated to be $15,000.
Soleste is within walking distance of Brightline’s MiamiCentral station. It is set to become one of Overtown’s first luxury apartment buildings, with 360 units planned.
Estates Investment Group has agreed to dedicate some units to those with incomes below a certain level, as part of a deal with the Overtown/Park West Community Redevelopment Agency, which owns the land.
