After changing hands, it seems this narrow piece of riverfront property is finally making headway.
Demolition is now underway at the site, after developer Brick Group acquired a permit in December last year.

The planned riverfront tower is set to rise 58 stories with 198 hotel rooms and 70 residential condos. Designed by Kobi Karp, the slim tower will also feature two restaurants – one rooftop and the other ground-level.


Other Updates


Island Bay - Edgewater

Island Bay - Edgewater


With its
utilities deal in place, this 60-story twin tower project by the Melo Group is one step closer to construction. Designed by Arquitectonica, the façade of both towers will feature unique zig-zag patterns and have a lighting scheme for the night, adding to Miami’s skyline.

While it could take the project two to three years to get all its permits in place, for now, the development is expected to rise 648 feet on Edgewater’s last vacant waterfront parcel. The residential tower is set to include 792 condos and 12,600 sq. ft. of retail while connecting to the Baywalk. Residents will also get easy access to the water as small docks with steps are being designed for kayakers and paddle boarders to walk up ashore.

Aston Martin ResidencesDowntown

G&G Business Developments made sure audiences took notice of the
addition of luxury kitchen amenities to their branded residences. Inviting Britain’s acclaimed Chef Justin Brown to their sales gallery, the cooking demo commemorated traditional English recipes cherished by the Royals, served alongside Gaggenau’s stainless steel appliances and Bulthaup cabinets.

With its first glass installed last month, the 66-story high-rise is on track for a 2022 completion. Featuring a unique wind-sail design, the ultra-luxury tower is designed to offer residents signature Aston Martin touches throughout its common areas, the only deep-water superyacht marina in Downtown, a sky lounge, infinity pool, spa, two cinemas, an art gallery, barber station, kids’ room, optional butler service, and more.

Prices start at $750,000 for condo units, while penthouses are available for $50 million

Ten30South Beach

Developer Shoma Group closed on a
$17.6 million construction loan for its boutique condo offering. Planned to offer moderately priced condos in highly sought-after South Beach, Ten30 is set to rise four stories high with a total of 43 residences. Amenities include a 6,000 sq. ft. rooftop deck, lounge, and outdoor kitchen with barbecue and yoga space. 

With developers looking to make the project more affordable for domestic buyers, its initial deposit requirements have been lowered to 15%. Further, qualified domestic buyers can get up to 97% financing. 

Prices start in the low $400,000s, with a choice of studios to two-bedroom residences

Eighty Seven ParkNorth Beach

Eighty Seven Park


With closings started this January, developer Terra Group has already
paid off its $155 million construction loan with more than 90% of residences sold. Such a quick recovery simply points to the high-demand of this recently completed condo offering.

Its plush interiors and luxuriant exterior living spaces come designed by the Paris-based studio of Rena Dumas Architecture Interieure (RDAI).
