Video: One Bayfront Plaza Emptying Out To Make Way For Supertall

Businesses at downtown Miami’s One Bayfront Plaza have now relocated to make way for a new supertall tower, a video by Actionkid shows.

There’s also a new rendering of the supertall – but it is unclear if it is what the developer is actually planning (the rendering was uploaded in June 2022, the website path states).

An existing office building is being demolished to make way for the new tower.

Jerome Hollo of Florida East Coast Realty told the SFBJ last week that they are now working to obtain a demolition permit.

Demolition is planned to begin in the first quarter of 2023, and will take around six months to complete. Construction on the new supertall is planned in 2024.

Hollo told the SFBJ that the developer is bullish on office demand.

The website reported that Kohn Pedersen Fox is the architect, with apartments, retail, and hotel also planned.

 

An older Kohn Pedersen Fox design for the tower approved in 2017:

The link you reference to the rendering, that’s just a placeholder image.

Or the Hollos could just be cleaning the property up for another flip. That construction start date is pushed out pretty far. How many years (DECADES?) have they been dangling this carrot?

The old rendering remind me of somebody saying “how many scoops of that chocolate ice cream would you like?”

There were signs of pending demolition and business closures up at the beginning of Aug Including the DDA (downtown development authority) who closed last month and who you would think knew what was coming relatively early. I was hoping to see the demo this year but at least it’s coming soon! It’s probably the ugliest and most outdated building with the most prime address on earth.
