Progress At Block 45: Project Submitted To FAA, With 2023 Crane Installation

There’s finally some recent development activity on the Block 45 project planned in Overtown.

Records show that the developer submitted plans to the Federal Aviation Administration, requesting approval for both the permanent height of the tower, and two temporary construction cranes.

According to a January 31 filing, the proposed permanent height of Block 45 will be 395 feet above ground, or 404 feet above sea level.

A separate January 20 filing lists two tower crane heights: One at 450 feet above ground, and another at 302 feet above ground.

The work schedule for the crane is estimated to begin in April 2023, and run through May 2025.

Atlantic Pacific Communities won the right to develop the project on the county owned site in 2019.

In 2020, the developer secured water and sewer utilities for the project, with the following uses:

  • 616 apartments
  • 12,473 square feet of retail
  • 12,473 square feet of full service restaurant

Records show that a construction permit application was initiated with the city of Miami last month, but remains incomplete and has still not been fully submitted.

Bermello Ajamil is the architect.

I know…
Seems like a long time to wait.
This is a nice looking tower and a catalyst for further action in Overtown.
Would love to see it sooner

something is surely off here…the last TNM article about Block 45 is from almost 2 years ago, and mentions: “Construction is expected to begin this month”.

They need to consult Melo re: their timeline…

Towers for the central NW zone are very welcome. The central SW area, Brickell, is already much denser.

I do like the look of it. Assuming that there a parking platform, these units line the outside on the lower levels?
