Structural engineer DeSimone placed a sign at Brickell’s The Towers by Foster and Partners property last week.
Twin towers rising 1,049 feet are planned for the site – the maximum permitted by the FAA. They are to become the tallest buildings on the east coast south of Manhattan, according to Foster’s website.
Last week, developers Tibor Hollo and Frank McCourt signed a mortgage modification agreement secured by the project site at 120 Brickell Bay Drive, extending a $45 million loan. Corigin Real Estate Group of New York is also said to be a partner in the project.
No construction permits are pending for the property.
A public plaza with open bay views is planned at ground level, along with retail and restaurant space. Parking will be buried underground or placed above the plaza, accessible by elevator.
