Melo Applies For Construction Permit To Build 649-Foot Aria Reserve

In Edgewater, developer Melo Group has just applied for a construction permit to begin building the first of two towers at Aria Reserve.

Plans have not yet been attached to the permit, so review is not yet underway. The application was filed on December 17.

There will be 383 residential units in the first tower, the permit states.

Total hard construction cost for the first tower is estimated to be $296.3 million, according to the permit filing.

Melo is listed as the contractor.

The 62-story Aria Reserve towers are planned to be built at 649 feet above sea level – the maximum permitted by the FAA in the area.

A second tower is also planned next door. They will become the tallest waterfront residential twin towers in the U.S., Melo has said.

Last month, Melo announced that construction would begin in early 2022.

Melo also recently completed the purchase of 147 units of Transferrable Development Rights from the historic Central Baptist Church property next to their Downtown 5th Property. The rights were transferred to be used at Aria Reserve.

Go Melo go. Accelerating the movement of people to downtown and adjacent neighborhoods. Goodbye empty lots, hello people and livability.

Nice to see buildings filling in an area in Miami with nothing around them. These should spur on some development in the area with no other buildings in the immediate vicinity.

Build ugly buildings, just because the space is there

Why don’t they ever build them together? Seems illogical

I think there should be just one of these buildings anyway.

If it proves uneconomical, then you’re only stuck with one tower instead of 2.

If you’re not God’s supposedly chosen people and don’t mind streets flooding every summer afternoon shower, sure.

The photos show unobstructed views in all directions. Are these towers being built on a deserted island?

(bad) Marketing baby! They did the same for Aria. Trust me, people hate to live at Aria. A decent view only on the front. The sides are awful.

Frankly, the should have used the Central Baptist Church TDRs on Downtown 5th, and built something that isn’t a total monstrosity and eyesore.
