The development site of an already approved 53-story mixed-use building planned for Downtown Miami was recently sold to a prominent New York City developer.

The 16,718-square-foot site traded hands for $10 million, and that includes the addresses 56 Southwest 1st Street and 65 Southwest 2nd Street, including the air rights to the adjacent city-owned parking structure at 70 Southwest 1st Street. Lions Group NYC intends to follow through with the existing plans for the new building.

The project would be built on the site of two former developments that never came to fruition primarily addressed as 1420 South Miami Avenue, bounded by Southwest 14th Street on the north and Southwest 14th Terrace on the south with Southwest 1st Avenue to the west.
