Miami-based real estate development firm Ytech has begun the demolition of the existing structure at 1428 Brickell Avenue, marking the first step in the development of the 70-story luxury high-rise condominium, The Residences at 1428 Brickell. Ytech, having acquired this now-vacant property in January 2017, is replacing what was once a 100,000-square-foot office space. The demolition is being conducted by John Moriarty & Associates (JMA), a renowned construction team. This pivotal step in the project, which features design by Arquitectonica, interiors by ACPV Architects, and landscaping by Arquitectonica GEO, is significant in realizing The Residences at 1428 Brickell. This development adds to Ytech’s momentum in the real estate sector following the recent approval of 75 Broadway by Miami’s Planning & Zoning department.
