CLIENT NEWS: 2,350-Unit Redevelopment Of Miami Arena Site Moves Ahead With Tree & Dewatering Permits

May 28, 2024

Construction permitting for a massive new residential project at the former Miami Arena site continues to advance, with new permits being filed.

In a sign that foundation work could soon begin, DERM records show that a Class V Dewatering Permit Application was filed for the site earlier this month.

On May 10, a Tree Permit application was filed with Miami’s Building Department. Over 40 trees will be removed or relocated, while over 40 will be planted. Review isn’t yet underway.

Review of a site work permit filed on April 8 with Miami’s Building Department is also now underway, and entered its second review cycle last week. Coastal Construction is listed as the contractor.

The master permit for the first 52-story, 624-foot tower with 893 apartments was first applied for in September 2023, with review beginning in December. It entered its second cycle of review in early April and remains in that state as of this morning.

A phased vertical permit for that tower has also been applied for but is not yet under review.

Eventually, the development will include 2,350 residential units and 1,924 parking spaces in three towers.

Witkoff Group is the developer. Kobi Karp is the architect.
