Related Group’s Miami Station Tower Getting Even Taller, Permit Now Pending

The mixed-use Miami Station tower that Related Group is building next to Brightline’s MiamiCentral is getting a height increase and joining the 500-foot club, according to a new filing.

A demolition permit is also now pending at the site.

The new height of the tower is proposed at 539 feet above ground, or 546 feet above sea level, according to an application submitted to the Federal Aviation Administration on November 9.

Previously, the tower was planned to top off at 41 stories or 458 feet above ground, according to plans filed with Miami’s Urban Development Review Board in January 2021.

According to the original plans submitted to the Urban Development Review Board, Miami Station was proposed to include:

  • 200,234 square feet of leasable office space
  • 309 apartments
  • 8,508 square feet of commercial/retail space
  • 510 parking spaces

It isn’t clear exactly where the new space will be allocated, or how many floors it will now have.

Related filed a Notice of Commencement for total demolition on October 20. The filing is typically made when work gets underway.

Unusually, there was no demolition permit yet for the site.

The developer then applied on October 27 for a demolition permit at the site, and submitted demolition plans on November 22. A half-built office building is on the property.

Overtown: good enough for everyone except Jorge Mas. Wonder if he regrets talking bad about the neighborhood and turning his back on the best possible site for the MLS stadium. Have fun next to the airport

I mean he’s happy with the Melreese site, it’ll make him way more money since he’s going to develop shops, a hotel and an office building there if it ever happens as opposed to just a stadium in Overtown. Atleast he still had the Overtown land in case Melreese doesn’t happen

Great news for this region, close to Miami Central. To the west, the new Block 45 and Block 55 towers, Grand Station and even a Publix. To the east, the fantastic Okan and the twin towers. The central region is rapidly expanding and, if it is well densified, more and more activities can be done on foot, making Miami even more vibrant. What really gives life to a city is its center being covered on foot.

In proximity to the “twin towers,” a.k.a. Melo’s Downtown 5th eyesore.

Right. Please just refer to it as downtown fifth. The Twin Towers, they are not.

Super excited for this project but wondering why Miami World Center still can not secure an office tower. Brickell, Wynwood, and Overtown are all building office space! Does anyone have any insight as to why this is??

I remember that, in the first renderings that presented the MWC masterplan, if I’m not mistaken, there would be three office towers on the northern perimeter, going from east to west.

Limited amenities except for a strip club maybe?

Limited amenities? um.

It’s the most transit-oriented neighborhood in probably all of South Florida. Brightline, TriRail, MetroRail, MetroMover, access to Airport, and i95 are all right there.

Also, FTX Arena, the Frost Science Museum, the Arsht Center, and Perez Art Museum are all great amenities. Not to mention Museum Park, and all the retail and dining being added.

It makes perfect sense for commercial development. What gives?

Because demand for office space is spotty and bulk of it is going to Doral, Coral Gables, Miramar etc

Demand is spotty yes. Just curious to see such a large office tower go up in Overtown, meanwhile what appears to be a neighborhood primed for commercial development is struggling to produce a single office building.

I wish it’ll have a sloped crown, but at least the extra height will make it less like a squat box.

It even says so on the map… Overtown expands further west, of course. This is the beginning of Overtown and it’s also the beginning of its rehabilitation into a world class neighborhood❤️

With all seven towers ready soon, Overtowm will not be a mere sleeping station, but will take on a life of its own.
