Two 52-story apartment towers that will bring thousands of residents into Miami’s urban core are nearing completion.
The two towers form a complex called Downtown 5th.
Photos show that most of the balconies are now installed on the east tower at the complex, which is further ahead. The west tower is now being painted.
Groundbreaking for the first tower took place in December 2019, with a foundation pour in February 2020. The second tower’s foundation pour took place in March 2020.
Each tower rises 53 stories, or 495 feet above ground.
Combined, the two buildings will have 1,042 apartments – more than any other residential project ever built in Miami’s Central Business District.
Melo Group is the developer.
