Twin 60-Story Towers At One River Point Still Being Actively Moved Through Permitting Process

The twin-tower One River Point project is still moving through the construction permitting process as of this month – six years after the permit was first applied for.

In March 2021 alone, the construction permit has been reviewed by at least six reviewers in Miami’s Building Department, records show.

The plans were checked by Mechanical, Plumbing, Gas, Public Works, and Zoning – all of which denied approval.

According to the construction permit, a total of 300 units are being built at a cost of $210,094,325.

The permit was first applied for in 2015, and has been reactivated four times since then after falling dormant.

A separate permit is pending for a phased foundation permit.

The project received FAA approval in 2019 for a height of 817 feet above ground.

Developer Kar Properties is also building the 38-story 2000 Ocean tower in Hallandale Beach, which is nearing completion.

Precisely, with Melo’s rate of return and this kind of architecture we could have nicer buildings in Miami

Aria looks better than this TBH. Vinoy is hit and miss, and when it’s bad, it sucks (432 Park Avenue and 20 Fenchurch Street).

I want to know what percentage of units they sold. The buyers still waiting must be stupid after all these delays.

I once talked to the salespeople and the number sold is VERY small.
At this point it’s more like a scam. They are maintaining empty sales offices and renewing permits, but still nothing substantial happening

“In March 2021 alone, the construction permit has been reviewed by at least
six reviewers”, while they approve Melo’s towers in ten minutes, go figure.

The Melo Group are not presenting any tower renderings that will hog up views of the river.

Hog from whom? Shouldn’t the people that live there have a right to said view? Or do we not develop adjacent lots ANYWHERE for fear of blocking someone else’s view? Wow…try that argument in NYC.

Other than the lackluster bridge, just two nondescript cereal boxes. Miami won’t miss it.

I think one building at 900ft would be enough.

Hopefully they make the top “floaty” part a transparent pool, that allows you to see ground from up there.

Something has to be wrong if they are getting denied. Idk if it’s design wise or what but that’s ridiculous in 6 years no movement. I thought this project would be like PMG Waldorf-Astoria project but guess not. Hope they can get things moving.

Can’t say I care too much for that bridge. It could be a bit more stylized!

I’ve always thought this would look beautiful right where it is proposed. Stunning. Wish I knew what the delays really are. Who is Kar Properties?

You’d think they would give up by now… This is an expensive charade they are maintaining.
Units are too expensive for that location – Although in a few years it will be an amazing hot spot.
