Plans were filed this morning for total demolition of a former Burger King building at 1700 Biscayne Boulevard.
The property was purchased by Melo Group in 2021 for $105 million. At the time, the developer said it had long-term plans to redevelop the entire block with four 60-story towers including apartments, condos, and retail.
There does not appear to be any demolition permit in process for an adjacent 2-story commercial building also owned by Melo at 1730 Biscayne that is part of the development property.
According to the March 30 demolition permit filing at the former Burger King, a total of 3868 square feet will be demolished. County records show the building was completed in 1988.
Melo Contractors Corp. is listed as the demolition contractor.
