Total Demolition Permit Approved At Brickell’s St. Regis Residences Site

Miami’s Building Department approved a permit earlier this morning for total demolition to clear the site where Brickell’s St. Regis Residences is planned.

A 17-story building built in 1966 is currently on the property.

According to demolition permit filing, a total of 211,121 square feet will be totally demolished, at an estimated cost of $1,127,000.00.

The BG Group LLC is listed as the demolition contractor.

The demolition permit was first applied for in June 2023.

The new St. Regis Residences tower is planned to rise 48 stories, or 639 feet, designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects.

in June, Miami’s UDRB reviewed and approved the design of the new tower.

In July, the Federal Aviation Administration approved the tower’s permanent height at 630 feet above ground, or 639 feet above sea level.

In August, a construction permit for the new tower was applied for, with review underway as of this morning.

Great to see this area of Brickell seeing new development! Hopefully this will spark more midsized development on the other side of Brickell Avenue!

Plenty of other crap boxes with surface parking lots to demolish and redevelop this side of Brickell Avenue. It shouldn’t stop at this and Una.

Would be great to see a picture of what’s being demolished, given that it’s the subject of the article!

Game changer – always exciting to welcome another starchitect to our city.

How thick are the cantilevered, exterior balcony concrete slabs? And are they covered so as to be completely protected from the elements? If the concrete is exposed, in whole or in part, to the elements, account must properly be taken in the design for high humidity, high temperatures and salt-laden air in a marine environment. It also rains often in Miami as it does elsewhere in Florida, so the concrete will be subject to frequent wetting. All these factors have the potential for premature deterioration of the concrete and in turn embedded reinforcement. Potential buyers of these expensive dwellings would be well advised to ask questions of the developer to obtain satisfactory answers regarding these aspects.

Good point. Someone needs to tell the developer the building is in Miami.

Approve the new construction permit already.

46 stories is not enough. We need at least 100 floors.
