The First United Methodist Church has moved from 400 Biscayne, and fencing is being installed at the site this week.
Developer PMG is planning a two-phase project, with the first phase likely being a 45 to 50-story residential tower.
In January, the developer purchased the property for $55 million, with a new church to be built on the site as part of the deal.
The developer secured utilities for 704 units from the county last month for the new development.
A demolition permit has not yet been applied for.
