A Look At The Paraiso District Construction Progress

Earlier this week we showed Gran Paraiso, which is close to topping off and One Paraiso, which will be completed by the end of the year. 

In the Paraiso District, Paraiso Bay is nearly complete and is expected to open soon and topped off in July 2016. 

Both cranes have been removed from Paraiso Bayviews since we last looked in March and the tower topped off in May of this year. 

Construction is also underway on Michael Schwartz's new restaurant at the edge of the water in the Paraiso District called Amara at Paraiso. The restaurant will be 4,500 square feet and have seats for 150. Amara at Paraiso is expected to open in November.

Related Group May Redevelop Olympia Theater And Residential Units

Located at 174 East Flagler Street in Downtown Miami, The Olympia Theater was built in 1926 and designed by John Eberson. After being purchased by Maurice Gusman in 1972, architect Morris Lapidus renovated the theater and the building was donated to the City of Miami. Restorations occurred between 1989 - 1995 on the building by RJ Heisenbottle Architects, with the offices converted in residential units.

The city has $3 million allocated for improvements to the building. 

Gran Paraiso Close To Topping Out

The last of the four towers in the Paraiso District, Gran Paraiso, is close to topping out at 55 stories.

When we last looked at the entire Paraiso District in March, Gran Paraiso was just past the half way mark of construction. 

During Hurricane Irma, the South crane jib collapsed during the heavy winds and causes the counterweights on the back to fall to the ground. Residents at two next door buildings were asked to evacuate for safety reasons.

When completed, over 1,300 units will be delivered to buyers in the Paraiso District.
