Let’s hope this is real and not a ploy to flip.

Have we ever had a buyer adopt plans and actually build them? I'm getting desensitized to these massive or extravagant proposals. They seem to be land flips most of the times. One Thousand Museum and Paramount are the only ones I can think of getting built recently. Not convinced Aston Martin is actually going vertical yet. One River is another.

Yeah, unfortunately I think you nailed it on the head here. Most of these "proposals" never actually materialize so I tend not to get too excited until shovels actually hit dirt.

With some of the condo proposals I don't even really care if they get built or not because most don't excite me at all with their design, to be honest.

But some of the others (especially tall office proposals) are another matter. Sure would like to see one or two of those added. :cheers:

I think you're very right. Actually as I typed that post I considered if it had ever happened. The only one that even came up as a possibility was Flatiron but I could't remember if it switched hands or just came to be years later.

Miami Approves 82-Story 2nd & 2nd Tower After 16 Months Of Review


An 82-story tower known as 2nd & 2nd was granted approval last week when Miami’s Office of Zoning granted waivers needed from the Miami 21 zoning code.
A notice issued on the city’s website confirmed the approval was issued November 26. Plans for the tower were first submitted in July 2017, making it 16 months of review.
If construction were to begin today, it would become the tallest building in Miami at its proposed 898-foot height. Brickell’s Panorama Tower is now the tallest at 868 feet, although several buildings are proposed above the 1,000-foot mark including Skyrise, where excavation is underway.
A Courtyard by Marriott hotel would need to be demolished to make way for the new 2nd & 2nd tower.
As reviewed by the UDRB earlier this year, the development would encompass more than 1.5 million square feet, including:

  • 266 hotel rooms
  • 637 residential units
  • 9,245 square feet of retail
  • 553 parking spaces
Convention Center Hotel Corp. of Yonkers, NY submitted the plans. The developer is a subsidiary of AVR Realty.
