Melo Already Working On Approvals For Newly Purchased Lot Where 80-Story Tower Permitted

Melo Group recently met with city officials about a newly purchased property at Northeast Fifth Street and Miami Avenue.

In July, the developer paid $10 million for a 45,433-square-foot surface parking lot once owned by the Christ Fellowship Baptist Church. Melo is required to build a 300-space parking garage for the church as part of the deal.

Turkish developer Okan Group purchased the other half of the lot, and has submitted plans for a 73-story tower.

Up to 80-stories, 1.09 million square feet, and 1,043 residential units are permitted. The developer is said to be planning rental apartments.
