Proposed

42-story Condo Tower – South Beach

Developer Crescent Heights has proposed to build a 42-story condo tower at the entrance to South Beach on Alton Road. After talks with city administration, the condo tower will now be slimmer with a 13,900 sq. ft. floor plat opposed to its initial proposal of 17,000 sq. ft. The 5th Street tower will also feature only 42 stories with 400 units opposed to 60 with 510 residences.

One of the major highlights of the new plan is a 2.5 acres park that will be donated to the city for public use. The tower will also feature a single-story commercial plaza towards the east, inclusive of cafés and other establishments fit for community activities.

Other Updates

One Brickell City Center - Brickell

It could be a while before One Brickell hits the ground as Swire Properties is still busy revamping design plans for the 80-story condo tower. If built according to plans, the tower would become the tallest in Miami at 1,049 feet.

Developers have also submitted new plans to build on two additional city blocks, increasing the total area from 11.4 acres to 13.9 acres. The tower to be built on the Tobacco Road site is proposed to feature 54 stories with a 10-story podium, 588 condo units, 89,130 sq. ft. of retail/commercial space, and 839 parking spaces. The tower to be built on the Associated Photo site is proposed to feature 62 stories with a 12-story podium, 384 condo units, 3,200 sq. ft. of retail/commercial space, and 363 parking spaces. Both plans are subject to approval.
