Una Gets Green Light: 11-Story Building Will Be Demolished This Month To Make Way For Futuristic 46-Story Tower In Brickell (But No Implosion)

Demolition is about to begin in Brickell to make way for the ultra-modern 46-story Una tower.

Representatives of the developer told The Next Miami that demolition of an older building on the site will begin this month. A sales center currently on the property will also close this month.

An 11-story building with 61 residential units (including the sales center) from 1971 is being demolished. Developers Oko Group and Cain International paid $48 million for the property.

There will not be an implosion. Instead, the older building will be excavated floor by floor and dismantled with a gripper.

Interest and sales  of condo units at Una continue to be strong. A total of 135 condo units are being sold.

Una will rise 613 feet, with architecture by the same firm that designed the world’s tallest tower, Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture.
