Melo Group’s 425-Unit Miami Plaza Apartment Tower Appears On Track To Top Off By Year End

Melo Group’s 35-Story Miami Plaza appears on track to top off soon, possibly by the end of the year

The speedy pace of construction is standard operating procedure for Melo, which has built a reputation as one of the fastest developers in Miami.

Miami Plaza will include 425 apartments, along with a token amount of ground floor retail.

The tower is being designed by Melo’s in-house architecture team.

The School Board Metromover station is across the street.

With the completion of Miami Plaza, Melo will have completed around 1,800 units around the School Board Metromover station in recent years, including four other towers at Art Plaza and Square Station that are already open.

The School Board Metromover station is across the street…and it is a dump, but nobody bothered to ask Melo to do some improvements to it.

Everyone talks about the metro mover which sadly goes nowhere. A small loop within downtown is a joke and the frequency is abysmal and it closes at night. Please Stop invoking the advantage of being next to the silly metro mover that goes nowhere.

Pretty sure the biggest proponents of the Mover are people who don’t use it.

You are probably right, although workforce force that wait table and bartend in the area would jump on it and ride… and Miami-Dade College students and instructors that want to live downtown.

The only way food service workers and students can afford one of Melos apt’s is to share with 2 or 3 roommates or have mommy and daddy pay for it..I live in one and the parking is horrible since each apt is only zoned by Miami as 1 per unit! With 3 workers in a unit , there’s at least 2 cars and 1 scooter??Another Miami JOKE!
Consider the average rent on a 1/1 is around 1600.00 plus water and electric.Then a car payment average=300.00 car ins.= 100.c/c bills ?, health insurance ?, food?, gas? Please please . Miami’s pay scales are some of the most abysmal to the cola(cost of living adjustment) and a downturn is inevitable.

I take the metro mover almost daily and I’d say on average I wait no more than 3 minutes. It get’s me all over Downtown, Brickell, and I just took it to dinner and got off at School Board Station last week. Maybe it doesn’t go where YOU want it to go, but as more gets built it will go to where more and more people want to go.

do you know how long it takes for Metro Slugger trains to arrive at the last station on the route ???!!! Bwaaahahahahaha !! Hopefully it will be faster than the 5-10 minutes it will take for the crappy cheap elevators to get you out of the apartment building. 😉

Again, BLAME MIami City. They dictate how many elevators are needed in buildings and they side with developers to ensure approval and increased tax dollars.Miami is a city of thieves and could care less about the quality of life issues. They use the beach, the sun and close proximity to MIA and Central and South America to lure winter haters and international investors. Many USA developers want nothing to do with Miami.

Melancholy design, Melo.

Wow! Another white cereal box with some fake vegetation glued to it. Thanks for making Miami look like a modern Soviet Union. Apparently, a lot of Putin supporters visit this website.
