Miami Approves Total Demolition Permit At One Bayfront Plaza Supertall Site

Miami’s Building Department approved a total demolition permit for One Bayfront Plaza yesterday.

Contractors will now begin the process of demolishing the 19-story office building, which occupies a full city block in the heart of downtown Miami.

Demolition is estimated to take between 9 months and a year.

Interior demolition has already been underway since last year, and the building was covered with graffiti in December as part of a stunt during Miami Art Week.

The owner of the property is planning a landmark 1,049-foot supertall tower on the site, with offices, a convention hotel, residences, and a shopping mall.

9 months to year just to demolish it. Wonder what type of ancient technology they use that it takes that long to demolish a building? Expect an eyesore kind of landscaping right in the heart of our city for about 5 years.

Everything takes decades here in Miami to complete something. Now the One Brickell City Centre site feels as though one guy with a hammer is demolishing the old building after the accident. Too bad.

It took a split second to demolish the Everglades Hotel, and that shouldn’t have EVER been torn down.

YVE Hotel at least has restoration potential to its prewar appearance as Biscayne Boulevard’s last grand hotel. Tear down the Holiday Inn Express first!

Although it had fallen on bad times and poor upkeep, I’m sorry to see another Robert Law Weed buildings taken down.

Why not just implode the building instead? They did it for the old hospital in 500 Alton, so why not here?

It is shorter and in a much crowded area, where an implosion could possibly create a lot of havoc. In crowded cities they do that/ New, York, Chicago, Toronto, for example. The hospital was much shorter in height and in a pretty empty area. I actually saw that demolition in person, It was pretty cool!

It’s about time. The process has been painful for the businesses and other residents within the vicinity. The homeless, The trash, and general condition of the block has been unacceptable. The developers are extremely reputable and have always been honorable. Not sure why they simply stood by and watched all of it during the process.

Three cheers for yet another condo building with prices starting at $1 million. Goodbye middle class!

Hopefully this is a nice office tower and not another mediocre building.
