Brightline’s parent company filed a Notice Of Commencement stating that construction was beginning at their Supertower property in downtown Miami.
According to the filing, the following work is now getting underway:
Re-alignment of NW 1st Avenue from NW 1st to 2nd Street, and all associated work, such as demolition, water/sewer/paving/drainage, civil (grading, site improvements, hardscape, etc.)
The document was recorded on November 3.
By rerouting NW 1st Avenue, the developer will create a squared off site for the southern Supertower.
However, it will make driving in the area more difficult by breaking up the grid. A small park is also being demolished.
Two 83-story towers are planned with a combined 2,007 residential units, 49,634 square feet of retail, and 2,136 parking spaces.
Another developer may ultimately build the towers. A broker marketing the property previously showed the property as being in contract.
