Archaeological excavation is continuing at the Brickell site where the 75-story Baccarat Residences tower is planned, photos show.
City records show that the developer has made significant progress in recent months in obtaining a construction permit, which is now nearly fully approved.
However, the city’s Historic & Environmental Preservation reviewer is asking for several more pieces of information before approving the permit.
Among the items the reviewer wants to see: a plan showing the methodology for pile cap removal, describing how damage will be minimized to the surrounding cultural resources.
The sales team for developer Related Group recently announced that Baccarat is now over 60% reserved, and that conversion to contract is underway.
“The response has been overwhelming and it shows in our numbers,” said Eduardo Cofresi, Vice-President of Sales with the developer’s sales team.
