Foundation Permit Applied For To Begin Work At Una Residences Tower In Brickell

Brickell’s futuristic-looking 46-story Una Residences tower is one step closer to beginning construction.

Una will rise 613 feet, making it one of the tallest in that part of Brickell.

On August 5, contractor Civic Construction filed for a permit to begin foundation work for the tower. A total of $3 million worth of excavation, piles, and site and soil improvement is planned, the permit states.

Three levels of parking will be built underground.

Two other permits are pending, including a permit to demolish an existing building on the site and another permit for vertical construction of the tower. The demolition permit appears close to gaining approval from the city.

OKO Group’s Miami Waterfront Ventures, LLC subsidiary is the developer. Adrian Smith + Gordin Gill is the architect.

Very futuristic looking building. Love it.

In Miami, for every beautiful building, we must take four hideous ones.

What, you think someplace like Tokyo for instance is full of nothing but beautiful buildings?

“The demolition permit has been resubmitted seven times as contractors continue to try to gain approval from city officials.” ????

Not surprised. It’s no wonder why properties are taking so long to get out of the ground, and this is just for a demolition permit. Unreal!

When it breaks ground, I hope they’ll start buying up the neighboring condos and announce phase two, “Dos.”

meanwhile, Brickell Bay Drive residents refuse any upzoning.

Yes! We are hoping OKO will buy our condos. We have had offers from other developers but 95% of owners in each building would have to agree to sell. Hasn’t happened yet. Except for the Metropolitan, other condos on this street were built in the 1970s & ‘80s. Time to rebuild!

Some old Condo’s have large numbers of renters because owners could not sell. Developers could start buying up old Condo’s on the cheap in these Buildings with many renters and turn them into rentals untill they accumulate a sufficient number to buy out the remaining ones. The most unutilized property is next door to UNA with one building on almost 9 acres with large frontage on Bay and Brickell Ave. A 5 million dollar special assessment passed recently has upset owners and the mood to sell the building may be strong.Sell Baby Sell!

If it’s anything like Brickell Flatiron this will be finished by 2026. Things go up at a snail’s pace in Miami.

Does anyone know why this one has parking underground? I thought all parking had to be above ground for flooding reasons?

Anonymous

I think because the parking underground will be valet only?

But 3 levels of underground parking in a building right on the water – and in the water during hurricanes. Maybe its waterproof – new Russian technology. Good luck Vlad.

No one said that underground parking in Miami can’t be done.. it’s just very expensive to do it because of South Florida’s high water table.

Underground parking in the condo located on the Brickell corner of this street. Floods during heavy rain, constant leaks from above, tarps placed to protect vehicles. Overall a “nightmare” scenario. We have read that UNA unique construction will avoid this problem.

In construction there are ways of building underground even in wet areas like Florida. Its a little bit more expensive to do but can be done.

I really, really like this building.

They better hurry with the process and sales before the recession hits.

As long as we do not have to see your 4 minute infomercials on YouTube I will be happy.

This building is the ice breaker for this area of Brickell. Will be interesting who the final buyer for the 8+ acre property hext door which has large Bay frontage. Might be a consortment of developers splitting up the property which is about the same size as all of 25th Road.You would not believe Who I think I noticed walking around the property a few weeks ago.
