Leases At One Bayfront Plaza Expire By 3Q 2019, Allowing 92-Story Tower To Move Forward

Demolition at One Bayfront Plaza could begin in about a year, to make way for a 92-story tower.

Florida East Coast Realty manager Jerome Hollo told Miami Today that leases at the existing building on site run through the second or third quarter of 2019. After that, the building will be demolished.

Earlier this year, revised plans for the new 92-story tower were approved by Miami Planning & Zoning Staff. Documents are now being prepared to apply for a construction permit.

The project will include:

  • 1,361 rental apartments
  • 534,379 square feet of office space
  • 101,650 square feet of retail
  • 200 hotel rooms
  • 2,117 parking spaces
  • Observation deck on level 92

It will be the tallest building in Florida at 1,049 feet above sea level.

The developer is in talks with FDOT to build a pedestrian bridge to an adjacent Metromover station.
