Melo Group’s Twin-Tower 53-Story Downtown 5th Submitted For Review By UDRB

Developer Melo Group is moving forward with plans to build a twin-tower project called Downtown 5th and has submitted the plans for a hearing before the Urban Development Review Board.

Each tower would rise 53 stories, or 502 feet above ground, the newly submitted plans show.

A total of 1,042 residential units is planned, along with 1,049 parking spaces.

The ground floor is proposed to include lobby space and some retail, with a mezzanine level above. Total ground floor commercial space is 12,506 square feet.

A 12-story parking garage is planned to span levels 2 through 14, with a pool deck and amenity space above it. The upper levels of the tower are residential.

Miami’s Urban Development Review Board is scheduled to review the proposal at a meeting on July 17. Six waivers are being requested from Miami 21 zoning code requirements.

Construction permitting for the project is already underway.

Melo Architecture is designing the towers.
