Developer Applies For Permit To Build 54-Story Miami River Tower

The developer of the Miami River project has applied for a construction permit for the first building at the complex.

The application was applied for on May 19, and the full plans were accepted by the city on June 24.

According to the application, the tower will include:

  • 632 residential units, spread over 1,164,143 square feet of space
  • 12,305 square feet of retail on the ground floor

The tower will rise 54 stories, or 643 feet.

Total hard construction cost is estimated to be $205,878,500.

The developer is paying for private provider review of the plans, which is generally much more expensive but also allows for significantly faster approval and construction start.

Meyer Chetrit’s GC Miami River, LLC of New York is listed as the owner on the permit.

GT McDonald is listed as the contractor.

Miami commissioners are also scheduled to vote soon on converting Southwest 3rd Avenue between Southwest 6th Street and Southwest 7th Street in front of the project into a two street.

City staff is recommending approval of the request. A vote is scheduled for July 7.

Michael Dell’s MSD Partners has provided a total of $70 million in financing for the project, including an additional $15 million in pre-construction financing granted in March.

The 4.2 million square foot Miami River project will eventually have 5 phases. According to a completed utilities deal, it will include:

  • 1,678 residential units
  • 330 hotel rooms
  • 196,882-square-feet of retail space
  • 98,040-square-feet of office space
  • 30-slip marina

The two tallest towers are planned to rise 649 feet above sea level.

But what does phase 1 look like?

Eh-ehem!! I think you’re looking at it! Look at the photos above. I wonder how long it would take to build out the whole thing. It better not be 10 to 25 years, not even 7 to 15.

Phase 1 is probably one building. The shortest and ugliest one. Perhaps just a section of parking podium. Then they will rent it out to the city while they wait to sell off the property. Miami:Where anything goes!

This project (as depicted) is to nice to be true. We may end up with a couple of boring square buildings if we are lucky. I have a bad feeling about this one.

I thought that it was designed by Stephane Dupoux. KK is probably the production architect, and architect of record.
It is an important site, and I think that the design is fantastic.

At least it has curves, and I don’t mean a cigarette box with wavy balconies. The base looks fantastic, and no parking pedestal with LSD murals or random bits of sheet metal, too.
