Melo Group has announced big plans for downtown Miami.
The developer told Diario Las Américas that they plan to build around 4,000 more apartments in high-rise buildings on land they have acquired in downtown Miami.
The first of the new projects will be Downtown 1st, the tallest building ever for Melo at 57 stories. Construction could begin at the end of 2021.
Downtown 1st will include 560 apartments, 2,925 square feet of retail and 12,930 square feet of office.
Another new project planned by Melo is Downtown 6th, next to the Central Baptist Church and their Downtown 5th project.
Details of Downtown 6th have yet to be revealed.
Melo recently topped off two 52-story towers at Downtown 5th, which will include 1,042, apartments – the most ever in a single project for the developer.
Melo said they will continue to focus on downtown Miami, since their focus is on high-rise building. There aren’t many areas in Miami where they can build such tall buildings, they said.
