PMG Wants Empire World Towers MUSP Modified To Build Vice Apartments

Next week, Miami’s Urban Development Review Board will review plans by developer PMG to build an apartment tower called Vice.

PMG is seeking to modify the Empire World Towers MUSP, which was originally approved for the site in 2008. At the time, plans called for a twin-tower, 93-story project.

Under PMG’s revised plan, Vice will include 464 units in a 31-story, 354-foot tower at 243 NE 3rd Street.  A 670 space parking garage will be adorned with an art installation by artist Javier Martin. Total FLR is proposed at 705,750 square feet.

A second tower that will be located on the Biscayne Boulevard side of the property hasn’t been submitted for review yet. That tower will be built as condos, and exceed 1,000-feet in height, according to an application to the FAA.

Groundbreaking is scheduled for the first quarter of 2016.
