Melo Group Says New 60-Story Tower With 824 Units ‘Coming Soon’

Melo Group has announced that it will soon begin a 60-story tower next to its 53-story Downtown 5th towers, according to Miami Today.

The new tower will have 824 units and is “coming soon,” the developer said.

It was previously known as Downtown 6th. Renderings have not yet been released.

Melo said its 58-story, 560-unit Downtown 1st is on track for completion in November 2022.

Melo’s Urban22 with 441 apartments and a masked parking garage is expected to be completed in January or February 2023.

The developer’s Aria Reserve with twin 62-story towers just broke ground, with the south tower expected to be completed in 2024 and the north tower in 2025. 95% of units in the south tower are already reserved, and 50% of units in the north tower are reserved,

 

Foundation work at Melo’s Aria Reserve last week:

Waitaminute… I get “two thumb down votes” for saying “Okay” because I’m agreeing with Rocky but he gets (so far) six “thumb up votes” for saying “keep building Melo!?

Some people in Miami reading comprehension is more fucked up than I thought!

See, this is what I’m talking about. The “…” represents a pause, which is a longer pause to take than a comma.

Another gold star for Melo. We need more of these buildings like these. Downtown 5th turned out great. Few kinks when it opened, but perfection since.

We definitely don’t need anymore superlux $2M+ condos.

Sorry, Miami is a luxury city and will become even more so in the decades to come. You want a city with ugly, low quality buildings, move elsewhere. There are plenty of places that fit the bill.

It’s a landmarked building that can’t be demolished and is currently undergoing renovations.

Yeah.. considering that this church sold the land to Melo and Okan to build their towers it’s likely that only this church has the power to demolish their building.

Less Spence building will be the right moral & clever future for the mostly future immigration & the actual here; beside the very expensive one for very or high income people. State land or county one provide with all vacant forest or semi partially wetland that only produce mosquitoes& garbage damping, who owners of this vacant land pay taxes & having not easy ways to develop their own lands due to too many regulation, money& time

Anonymous

lol as if they didn’t know if the plan already. Okan brilliantly put condo units right at the top so only hotel units will be obstructed and Okan will rise above all the surrounding buildings so it doesn’t suck, it just makes Okan toward a true luxury urban tower!

Anon

No, it really sucks.

Melo’s tower is going to be taller than Downtown 5th (500′). Assuming it’s roughly 600′, and knowing that Okan is 890′ (we’ll round to 900′) that means TWO THIRDS of the entire tower will be blocked by Melo’s tower.

That’s the entirety of the Hilton Hotel, and part of the condo units.

BRILLIANT STRATEGY!

People are quick to downvote but these numbers are nothing but facts. One-third of Okan will be completely blocked.
