A 7-story parking garage in downtown Miami is set for total demolition, according to a permit application filed with Miami’s Building Department this morning.
The garage is operated by the Miami Parking Authority. There are plans to replace it with a 49-story tower that will have an even bigger parking garage.
According to the demolition permit application submitted on May 12, a total of 124,304 square feet will be demolished at an estimated cost of $300,000. A contractor is not yet attached to the permit.
Lions Group presented plans last year to an MPA Board to combine the garage site with property it owns next door to build the 49-story project called M-Tower.
According to preliminary plans submitted last year, M-Tower is proposed to include:
- 624 residential units
- residential amenities
- ground floor retail, and offices for the MPA
- 717 parking spaces (replacing the existing 658-space garage)
The plans were prepared by architectural firm NBWW.
There does not yet appear to be a construction permit pending for the new tower.
