Photo: Giant Wall Of Glass Being Installed At 49-Story Society Biscayne On Biscayne Boulevard

A giant wall of glass is now being installed at the 49-story Society Biscayne tower under construction on Biscayne Boulevard, a new photo shows.

The glass façade is for a 10-story church that sits at the base of the tower, which will have its own separate entrance.

The First United Methodist Church will include a chapel, a fellowship hall, classrooms, offices, a basketball court, and a 3-story sanctuary with views of Biscayne Bay. The total church area is about 25,000 square feet.

Developer PMG is building the church as a replacement for First United Methodist’s church that once stood on the same property.

The 49-story tower will also have 714 rental apartments, 48,000 square feet of office space, and 3,000 square feet of retail.

According to a July social media post by developer PMG, opening is scheduled for January 2022.

Woah, this wouldn’t be open to at least March. Idk why they said January. Installing all that dry wall, outlets, kitchens, toilets, flooring is going to take months.

Moving here meaning downtown, not to this building unfortunately. Probably Bezel or Paramount or even Marina Blue looks really nice.

I just moved from SLS LUX to Paramount and I love it. Can’t wait for all the retail and restaurants to open up.

I got a much nicer apartment with views and more amenities for the same price. I can always jump on the Metromover and go to Brickell.

My partner and I have been thinking of moving into the downtown area as well! While Brickell is extremely centre-ic, downtown has a few bangers coming up! I agree with the views and pricing as well. Kind of tired of looking over at Linda’s plants across from me on the 33rd floor as well.

700 units in a building that also has a church, these must be mostly one bedrooms

Never been a huge fan of this project, but I’m relieved that it’s (so far) one of those rare situations where the final product looks much better than the renderings.

Let’s hope I haven’t jinxed anything. 😣

if a church can afford ten stories in this building, they can afford to pay taxes like everyone else.

Great news , I heard an evangelical church is coming to this building with an evangelical pastor that performs miracles and expells demons so I will go there so he can cure my cancer

What happened to the actual communist Cuban spy who used to complain about this building having a church in it? The tell was the “religion is mafia” mantra he repeated.

Anyway it was a great deal for everyone involved, for the church that owned that land to sell it to a developer in exchange for including a new church for them in the building.

Do the same with those lower buildings next to it, which are Miami-Dade College classroom buildings. New classrooms with a new tower on top!

Well religion IS mafia and it is for people with poor mental health. Believing in an imaginary being is a sign of mental illness.

I believe in God and HE speaks to me every day, every night, HE lives in me and I live in HIM. Nothing happens in the world that HE does not want to happen so shut up and stop making these stupid comments against GOD!
