Vertical Construction Underway At 35-Story Miami Plaza

Melo Group’s 35-story Miami Plaza tower is going vertical, less than three months after breaking ground.

A tower crane was being installed at the site yesterday. Foundation equipment first arrived at the site in mid-January.

In total, 425 apartments, 5,064 square feet of retail and 508 parking spaces are being built at Miami Plaza.

Based on Melo’s track record, the building will be topped off at its proposed height of 370 feet by this time next year. The developer is putting the finishing touches on nearby Art Plaza, with twin 35-story towers and 667 units, about a year and a half after breaking ground.

Melo is planning to break ground on the twin 51-story tower Downtown 5th project later this year, according to the Sun Sentinel.

Their efficiency and execution has allowed them to flood this area with much needed rental density and compared to what this area looked like even a year ago is astounding! Keep it going Melos!!

I like how fast they build but all their apartments have paper thin walls. Would never rent with them.

I don’t why people sweat that because interior walls can be beefed up or changed anytime.

Oh, so that’s the reason they’re always remodeling McDonalds and Burger kings, because they keep doing them wrong?

“Based on Melo’s track record, the building will be topped off at its proposed height of 370 feet by this time next year” That isn’t a inaccurate statement, it will be topped off by november of this year.

Miami Urban Core continuation is coming along very nicely from downtown to the Northern City Limit!!! With the exception of the Upper East Side MiMo District which is suffering from the effects of the Absurd 35 Feet Height Restriction imposed by the Morningside Antidevelopment Gang.

Actually its coming along great and it even has a bar crawl now and plenty of new restaurants, bars, clubs and shops.

No, its definitely affecting peoples ability to want to develop anything other than small one-story retail with poorly designed ‘loft’ levels behind it. This also affects property value.

Does every square foot have to be filled in with a hi-rise? Keep it low rise and green.

Melo purchased this property before you did and they’re building something on it.
