Foundation Equipment Arrives At Oko’s 830 Brickell Site, Construction Permit Filed For 56-Story Office Tower

There’s lots of activity at Oko Group’s 830 Brickell site across from Brickell City Centre.

Last week, a construction permit was filed to build a 56-story story office tower on the site. A total of 555,094 square feet of office space will be built, according to the permit, with construction cost estimated at $97,141,450. Civic Construction is listed as the contractor.

Heavy foundation equipment was also brought to the site last week, and a building formerly housing Chicken Kitchen was in the process of being demolished.

The new building could become the second tallest in Miami. A pending FAA application lists the building height at 834 feet above ground, or 839 feet above sea level. The only building in Florida that is now taller is Brickell’s Panorama Tower (although excavation is underway at the 1,049-foot Skyrise site, and several other buildings are planned above 1,000 feet).
