PLAZA OVERCOMES LOGISTICAL CHALLENGES TO BUILD A MIAMI LUXURY RESIDENCE. BY JAMIE MORGAN A s a follow-up to the successful EnV luxury rental residence in Chicago’s River North neighborhood, Lynd Development Partners has teamed up with LNR Property LLC for a second EnV – this time in Miami’s Mary Brickell Village. Located in the heart of Miami’s financial district, Mary Brickell Village offers an eclectic mix of upscale dining, shopping and entertainment options. The village-like setting with lush vegetation, water features and entertainment venues offers 195,000 square feet of retail space and two public plazas surrounded by mature oak and mahogany trees. Offering everything from Mexican to Asian, seafood to Italian Cuisine, Mary Brickell Village has become a dining and entertainment mecca for residents and visitors. EnV is designed as an 800,000-square-foot, 390-unit luxury apartment high-rise. The project got under way when construction manager at-risk Plaza Construction broke ground in October 2012. The term “broke ground” in this instance, however, is only a formality because the 34-story tower is being built atop an existing structure. “We really got started on this project in October, but because we are building on top of another building we didn’t actually break ground,” explains Brad Meltzer, president and principal of Plaza Construction Miami. “The project is being built on top of the Publix Super Market at Mary Brickell Village, which also includes a shopping center.” EnV will be a 390-unit luxury residential high-rise in the heart of Miami. « Plaza Construction – EnV residential tower • Location: Miami • Construction cost: $65 million • Employees on site at peak: More than 300 • Scope of work: 34-story, 390-unit luxury residential tower 42 CONSTRUCTION-TODAY.COM JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2013 PHOTO: SPINE 3D ENV BRICKELL Residential | PLAZA CONSTRUCTION – ENV RESIDENTIAL TOWER Firm Foundation http://www.CONSTRUCTION-TODAY.COM
