Engineer Says They Have Been Hired To Begin Work On 40-Story Downtown Miami Towers

Miami Riverside Center now has an engineer.

Bliss & Nyitray, Inc announced on social media last week that they had been hired as the engineer for the project.

The company will be working on multiple 40 story residential towers, as well as 19-story office tower.

Miami voters approved a deal last year that will see the city of Miami administrative building demolished and replaced by developer Adler Group.

Miami Riverside Center “will change the style of living, working, & socializing on the [Miami] River,” Bliss & Nyitray promised.

NBWW is the architect.

Great addition to activate that part of the river that’s been a complete dead zone…

Dead zone?.. what do you expect, it’s right next to the FPL company.

For the people who wants to give this comment thumbs down, explain, in your opinion, what is wrong with what was said.

It’s not just the FPL company, it’s an ugly looking industrial electrical facility, and to top it off, the development is flanked by I-95 on the other side.

Too bad FPL has 2 football fields of equipment on the river creating a desert

any way to fix this realistically?

A lot of the equipment on the FPL site can be placed in a multi-story building, thus reducing their footprint and hiding them from public view.

It would cost FPL millions of dollars in investment but they could easily recoup those expenses ten times over by selling the land directly adjacent to the river.

If they put out a bidding contest for a PPP, I’m sure they’d get plenty of investors willing to foot the bill for such a building.

And I thought they were going to recoup this effort by installing the solar lights in Bayfront park.

Agreed, Paul. There can be elegant solutions, but they will be likely be quite expensive. Seattle recently completed a new substation near the main Amazon headquarters downtown. In addition to fulfilling its main purpose, they spent a bunch of money to make the whole block into a public amenity (including dog park, community space, etc).
Google it “Seattle City Light Denny Substation”. There is a good article in the Seattle Times for anyone interested, or on Wikipedia.
It would be great to see Miami do something similar with the prime land downtown.

Weird, I said “Dead zone?.. what do you expect, it’s right next to the FPL company” and you’re saying basically the same thing but get a thumbs up?.. wtf…

Get used to it. That’s what happens here when comments are perceived as “negative”. Even if they are true. Unless it’s about Melo. Then they all pile up the high fives. This could really be a serious/informative site but a few really just come here to push an agenda.

Been reading this site since it was named “The New Miami” and I’ll never understand the reading comprehension of a lot of these people. It’s as if Miami is full of brain dead mofos.

Melo’s awesome. Mana sucks. ULTRA!!! Parking garages suck. Shore power.

That sums up about 50% of all comments.

No one thinks “Melo is awesome,” People are just glad that Melo is one of the only developers who stepped up and built something that’s more desirable than looking at nothing but empty, trash filled, overgrown weed filled lots. But Mana does suck.

That’s like saying if guy is 8ft tall “he’s too tall to be in the NBA.” Says who?

And I’m sure the shorter building will start construction first? Then phase two will include the taller building?

History shows that phase two will never materialize.

No chance of getting rid of that ugly power grid eh? Such great real estate too!

Don’t take another 5 to 7 years to build the second phase. Just have the whole thing done in maybe 3 to 4 years at most. I’m not sure if the City Hall would go inside of an Office and condominium development though. But yes I do agree that Miami City Hall needs a new building.

nooo keep them… I use them often to bypass Brickell Ave traffic. Not sure why no one else takes advantages of them.

What’s the point of going to a bypass when it’s much more fun to bitch about the traffic in Brickell?
