Soil testing appears to have been underway last week at the site where the 42-story Miami Station tower is planned.
In February, Chicago-based developer The John Buck Company – Florida Value Partners, and BH Group with PEBB Enterprises purchased the property for $39.5 million.
The development site had been marketed as being shovel ready.
The property consist of a vacant land and a half-built shell of a building to be demolished.
A demolition permit has already been issued for the 5-story building shell.
A construction permit to build the new tower was reactivated with Miami’s Building Department last month following the acquisition by the developers.
According to plans submitted to the Urban Development Review Board in 2021, Miami Station is proposed to include:
- 200,234 square feet of leasable office space
- 309 apartments
- 8,508 square feet of commercial/retail space
- 510 parking spaces
ODP is the design architect.
