General Contractor Hired To Build Okan Tower, Groundbreaking Soon

Okan Group announced today in a press release that they have selected Suffolk Construction as the general contractor for downtown Miami’s Okan Tower.

“We are thrilled to welcome the Suffolk Construction family to our robust team,” said Bekir Okan, Chairman of Okan Group. “Okan Tower will be a landmark addition to South Florida and it’s only fitting to partner with a company whose local and national reputation is impeccable, as well as one that we trust.”

Groundbreaking is expected before the end of the year, the developer said.

The $300 million tower will become the tallest residential building in Florida upon completion at 70 stories and 890 feet above ground, in a shape inspired by the tulip, Turkey’s national flower (Okan Group is based in Turkey).

Suffolk’s other nearby projects include the guitar-shaped $1.5 billion Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood tower, and Brightline’s Miami Central

“We are honored and privileged to have an opportunity to begin a long-term partnership with Okan Group,” said John Fish, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Suffolk. “This is an exciting project for our team and it will be a pleasure partnering with an organization that shares our vision for innovation and the future.”

Okan Tower will include 149 residential condominiums, 236 condo-hotel units, and a 316-key Hilton Bayfront Miami hotel, along with 64,000 square feet of Class A office space and ground floor retail.

Don’t mean to rain on the parade, but I’m not sure coconut palms are the best choice for a 60th floor edge-planter condition… just sayin

These mofos in Miami think they have to prove they are in Miami with a damn palm tree for everything. So boring. Uncreative. They stick up more ugly palm trees around the damn place more than you would find in the Caribbean and Hawaii combined. We get it. You are in Miami. Apparently the only warm place on earth that must prove it with a palm tree at every opportunity. No other trees can grow in Miami it seems. What an uninteresting place. You would think it takes a great deal of imagination to illustrate a different tree type. Not to mention it makes the city looks far from serious for anything beyond a pina colada sip.

Agreed, although, I am more concerned about coconuts knocking out pedestrians below.
