The first construction permit has been approved at downtown Miami’s Namdar Towers site.
However, it doesn’t appear that work can begin immediately since a demolition permit has not yet been issued.
The newly approved construction permit falls under the category of excavation, piles, and site and soil improvement.
Plans for the permit were submitted on August 15, with approval issued August 30. The permit has not been issued and is awaiting payment of fees.
A demolition permit to clear the site has been under review since mid-July, and is still not approved.
The new construction permit for a 40-story tower with 680 multifamily rental units and ground floor retail is also still being reviewed.
John Moriarty is the contractor on all of the permits.
Namdar Towers is planned as two towers rising 41 and 43 stories, with a combined 1,354 apartments.
The developer closed on the purchase of the property last week and obtained $195m in acquisition and construction financing.
