Tallest Tower in Florida Slated to Start Construction Beginning of 2019
The tower is approved by the FAA to rise 1049 ft, 97.45529 meters.
One Bayfront Plaza is to rise 92 stories with 1,361 residences, 100 hotel rooms, 534,379 square feet of offices, 101,650 square feet of retail, 27,500 square feet of exhibition/banquet area, and 8,000 square feet of observation deck/retail.
An abutting garage for up to 2,117 cars is also planned, along with three swimming pools, a pedestrian passage, and the hope of an elevated walkway linked to Metromover’s Bayfront Park Station.
The 2.5 acres at 100 S Biscayne Blvd take up the entire block between Southeast First and Second Streets and Southeast Third Avenue on it’s western edge.
Board members asked when developer, Florida East Coast Realty hopes to start building. Jerome Hollo, executive vice president, said it will probably be early 2019 before all needed permits are lined up and, after that, construction is expected to take 48 to 52 months.
