Empire Brickell continues to move closer to groundbreaking.
According to Miami Planning Department records, a final decision on Miami 21 zoning waivers needed for the project was issued on January 30.
Building Department records show that a permit for total demolition at the site was applied for in August 2022, and was actively being worked as of last month.
A construction permit for the new tower was also applied for in August, but it does not appear to be in active review since the full plans haven’t been filed.
According to a UDRB filing, Empire Brickell is planned to rise 26 stories, or 310 feet and include:
- 250 residential units
- 2,452 square feet of ground floor retail
- 344 parking spaces in a 6-story garage
Grand Peaks is the developer, with Corwil the architect.
