Several Cranes Will Be Installed Next Month At The Construction Site Of Twin 50-Story Downtown 5th

An application has been submitted to the Federal Aviation Administration to install tower cranes at the Downtown 5th construction site.

The first crane is to rise 591 feet above ground, or 604 feet above sea level.

A second crane is proposed to rise 550 feet above ground, or 563 feet above sea level.

Installation of the cranes is expected to take place in just a few weeks, on February 3. They will remain in place until August of 2021.

The twin towers of Downtown 5th are approved by the FAA for a permanent height of 495 feet above ground, or 508 feet above sea level.

Downtown 5th is the biggest residential project ever built in downtown Miami’s Central Business District. It will include 1,042 apartments and 12,506 square feet of retail in twin 53-story towers.

I’m waiting to see what else Melo will develop this year, keep it going and give them the key to the city.

These 2 towers are on 5th street. Melo also owns a lot directly behind on 6th street which is adjacent to the Okan tower. That lot will extend to NE 1st Avenue. A building expansion to the church will be demolished to make way for the sixth street tower. I have not seen any renderings of the new tower.

Thanks for that bit of info. Thank God the Melo Group is not another foot dragging empty lot owner we’ve been witnessing for far too long in Miami.

Go Melo!

Anything that’s concrete boxes with windows scattered everywhere won’t ever look good in person.

I’m happy to see more development downtown but after all it is supposed to be downtown. Meaning more office space more jobs! Yeah it’s great to see empty lots finally developed but not so much when it’s only residential. Only folks living in those units are people can afford it, mostly people that aren’t even permanent residence! Build more office something that will create jobs like most real downtowns have in other cities!

Developers build what the market demands at a price where they believe that they can earn an acceptable profit.
The reason more office is not built is that there is NOT a need for much more. There is still a need for housing.
