Melo Tells FAA: We’re Breaking Ground On Another Tower In Months

Melo Group could start construction on yet another downtown Miami apartment tower within months, according to a new filing with federal regulators.

On June 25, the developer applied for approval from the Federal Aviation Administration to build Miami Plaza, which Melo says is a 35-story luxury rental building.

According to the FAA application, the tower would rise 368 feet above ground, or 381 feet above sea level.

Construction is scheduled to begin on November 5, 2018, and wrap up on May 1, 2020, the application states.

In total, Melo is building 1,790 apartments on three city blocks surrounding the School Board Metromover Station. The first, Square Station, opened last month with 710 units, while another, Art Plaza, is under construction with 655 units.
