A proposal to demolish several buildings to make way for a 104-story supertall isn’t being opposed by preservationists, according to the Herald.
The Yve Hotel dates to the 1920s (originally known as the Miami Colonial), but renovations and a re-skin in the 1960s have significantly altered the appearance of the building. To read the history of the building, click here.
Another building proposed to be demolished, the 1923 Exchange, is said to be “perhaps not as significant.” It has been renovated and converted from office to hotel and back again.
City records show a total demolition permit pending for both buildings.
A pre-application for the new 104-story tower was filed in August.
Preliminary plans show the tower would include 1,074 residential units, 252 hotel keys, and 1,013 parking spaces.
