Site Work Underway At 710-Unit Square Station After FAA Approves Height

At Melo Group’s twin-tower Square Station project, three key milestones were achieved this week:

  • Crews began clearing the site
  • The FAA approved a structure height of 325 feet above ground, or 338 feet above sea level (each tower is 34 stories)
  • Zoning changes needed for the project passed a first reading of the city commission

When completed, each tower will include 355 units. Prices will range from $1,600 a month for a one-bedroom to $2,500 for a three-bedroom.

The project address is 1424 Northeast Miami Place.

The area needs a lot of infill.
I”d say more like 40 buildings to create a pleasant, urban environment.
Glad to see something beginning to happen.

Don’t think infill is the correct term. It implies that there is something existing and that a hole is being filled… this is a barren wasteland currently.

Thank you, I stand corrected.
Exactly what I meant.
A barren wasteland. The city should be giving mega incentives to developers to build, build, build.
An area not next to the bay, across from the Cultural Center and close to downtown and it’s sitting empty. Only in America!!!!!

Thats because an certain demographic lives near by. In brazil they run that demographic literally to the hills to live.

This project is impressive!
When I first got to Miami from DC in the late 90’s, I purchased a condo at the Venetia just up the street, and this area (and this block in particular) was right in the heart of the ‘hood, with many people just hanging out drinking out of a paper bag. I can only imagine how this area will look like in another 10 years. Kudos to the Melo’s and to any other developer who decides to build in this area.

Looking forward to seeing 14th street after all the proposed developments get built out.

So true..I wish I had bought empty lots back then. Developers are paying NY prices.

Melo is doing 2 things. They are bringing down the rental prices. Even though I am a Land lord and I don’t like it on a personal level, in the larger interest of the society, this is good for Miami as we need affordable rentals in downtown. Secondly they bring the buildings fast and furious. Love it too. But I will never ever forgive them for putting the ugliest box as a backdrop to our performing arts center. It is an unforgivable crime and I cringe everything I drive past on 395. I look the other way.

Design wise for Melo standards this building is really Good!!!! Glad to see Melo not only bringing this site to life, but doing it with a very decent design!!!! Kudos!! now lets hope our “bright” politicians start encouraging way more developers to continue the trend here.
