Okan Tower Set To Move Ahead With Contract Conversions In Early Spring

Okan Tower is taking the next step in the development process.

In an announcement on Instagram, the developer said they would begin converting reservation into contracts in early spring.

Both residential condo and condo-hotel units (to become part of the Hilton Miami Bayfront) would be converted, the announcement said. Okan Tower will include 149 condominiums, 236 condo-hotel units, and a 316-key hotel.

Records show that a permit to remove 23 trees at the property has been resubmitted three times, with the first submission September 27 and the most recent resubmission February 2. Construction permitting was initiated September 1, but does not appear to be in active review by the city as of now.

In October, the developer announced Suffolk Construction as the general contractor for the $300 million project.

The tower is proposed to rise 70 stories or 890 feet, which is taller than any other building in Miami today.

Miami Central is the catalyst for this area and actually all of downtown. This Okan tower is going to be a perfect fit for that area.

Looks like someone in the city government didn’t get their cut to approve the permitting. I’m looking at you Loco Joe.

” Construction permitting was initiated September 1, but does not appear to be in active review by the city as of now.” So why is the city choosing to drag their feet on this project ?

That’s what this city does. And people wonder why there’s no rail to Miami Beach yet.

Yeah I think we’re on our third environmental impact study now and those takes almost a year for some reason.

Yep.. how many impact studies do they need when we already know that climate change is going to make things much worse in Miami due to rising seas because of global warming and carbon monoxide reduction has to start now!

So you want to raise taxes and make people lose their jobs and stunt growth ?

Well I guess the city can get to uninhabitable status as far as you’re concerned. Who cares about the jobs that’ll be produced by building a rail line to Miami Beach, right? Nahhh.. you’d rather taxes be raised when shit hits the fan and fighting sea level rise is now at a state of emergency.

Melo and Archetectonica may have paid them off to derail it.

Best building unfortunately with some of the worst neighbors coming (that Melo project and a prison).
