Rendering:

New York-based Greystone & Co. has submitted plans to partially demolish a historic building at 2500 Biscayne Boulevard that dates back to 1923. A 20-story residential tower is planned to be integrated with the remains of the structure.

Greystone bought the .87 acre property earlier this year for $10 million. A local developer is partnering with Greystone on the project.

The plan will be reviewed by Miami’s Historic Preservation Board later today. The city’s preservation office is recommending that the board vote to deny the plan.

Behar Font & Partners is the project architect.

There will be 156 ‘unique’ rental apartments, and the luxury project will be ‘fully amenitized’. A full block of retail will be offered on the ground floor, including in the preserved facade of the historic building.
