MIAMI | Avant at Met Square | 498 FT | 34 FLOORS

Recession revived, and construction has began by the form of test piling.



Quote:
ExMiami notes that test-piling work has begun at the Met Square site, where that 33 floor hotel and entertainment tower has been planned and is apparently still happening, recent important Tequesta Indianarcheological discoveries be damned. On the upside, updated elevations on exMiami are looking better than they had earlier

Met Square Will Have Public Plaza With Archeological Stuff

Quote:
Plans for archeological exhibits at the site of the planned Met Square tower have expanded to include, in addition to various sections of the site preserved in interior gallery spaces, a cross-block public plaza that will have remnants of the Royal Palm Hotel, and a line demarcating the original Miami River shoreline, integrated into the plaza landscaping. The Next Miami first reported updated plans. The interior exhibits, which will be operated under a partnership with HistoryMiami, are also looking more elaborate, with glass floors over the partially-preserved Tequesta sites, educational and informational displays, and a preserved well dating back from Fort Dallas that doesn't seem to have been a part of previous plans (as far as we can tell).

Met Square Gets $42 Million Construction Loan, Residential Tower Planned



Quote:
MDM has obtained a $42 million construction loan to build Met Square, according to the SFBJ.

The loan will allow for construction of a seven-story podium that includes a 1,780-seat Silverspot movie theater, along with 37,666 square feet of restaurant space.

MDM also intends to develop a tower above the theater. The developer had planned to build a 192-room hotel, but instead will now build 392 residential units, according to plans filed in November 2014.

A lawsuit by archaeologist William Pestle against the City of Miami over a deal that would allow for construction of Met Square above historic finds at the site remains pending.

FAA's recent filing indicates that they want this tower to be chopped down to 471 feet, even though the developer wants to make it 538 feet.

Title is outdated for this thread, but if we are lucky, we might get 500 feet at least.

I feel like this could have been the perfect location for a supertall. But oh well. At least something is getting built there.

Yes it would have been perfect for a supertall since it is zoned for one up to 1,010 feet or even taller since One Brickell was approved for 1,040 feet recently.



The whole MET Miami project was nearly destroyed by the 2008 recession and they had to scale back projects including the MET 3 tower which would have been the tallest tower in Miami back then @ 828 FT. | 252 meters:



The MET project before the recession & MET Square wasn't even supposed to have a condo tower over it. It is the low rise building with the funky roof.

By the way this 1.25 acre green lot that faces the Miami River & is across the MET Square site sold for $125 Million this past year:
