Melo Revises Design For 425-Unit Miami Plaza

Melo Group appears to be modifying the design for their planned Miami Plaza apartment tower.

Last year, the developer submitted plans to build a 35-story, 370-foot tower with 425 rental apartments.

Now the developer has unveiled a website that includes renderings showing a slightly different design, including green-tinted glass balconies and windows, instead of gray.

The project sits directly to the north of the School Board Metromover station. Directly to the south of the same station is Melo’s Square Station (nearly complete with 710 units), while Melo’s Art Plaza is under construction across the street with 655 units.

Records show that the developer has continued to work with city officials on approvals for both Miami Plaza and Downtown 5th over the past few months.

That metromover station is going from a barely used dead one to a vital one for people living in walking distance from it.

Extending the mover from here turning north on Miami Avenue up in to Midtown is a no brainer.

Coastal Link with a Midtown stop is a no brainier.

Except for our beloved politicians! They have no desire to do what is correct.

I’d prefer something like NE and NW 2nd Aves instead.

Becuase Miami doesn’t have a reliable public transportation system.

Because not everyone works on the Metromover or Metro lines. Some of us have to commute West to make a living. Think before you post.

“Think before you post” LOL, not going to happen on this blog. Not in the times we’re living in.

Yes I know the Melo buildings are nothing to write home about, but I have no hate for them. They keep fulfilling a much needed rental void in the heart of Miami. Kudos to them!

Give this area 4-5 years and all those empty lots will be a thing of the past.

I’m not a Melo-basher, but this really is an ugly project. Two boxes with jagged balcony sizes and placement, no thank you!
