Melo Group Files To Demolish Downtown Miami Building

A downtown Miami building is about to be demolished.

Melo Group subsidiary 6 Plaza II LLC applied for a demolition permit on April 1, city records show. The permit is for total demolition of a building at 46 Northeast 6th Street.

The two-story building was completed during World War 2, in 1944. It includes 7,207 square feet of space on a 15,000 square foot lot.

Next door, Turkey’s Okan Group is planning Okan Tower, which will include a Hilton hotel, condos and offices.

On another adjacent property, Melo is planning the twin-tower Downtown 5th project, with twin 51-story towers that will have 1,042 apartments.

Melo also owns another property on the same block, with no announced plans yet.
