On the River the Old Epic Sales Center is Being Demolished, While Met Square Construction Continues
An Argentine developer and grocery store mogul has finally begun demolition of the former Epic sales center at 300 Biscayne Boulevard Way, on the Miami River. The Next Miami has some closer photos of the demolition. The over-the-top 2.5 story structure has stood there far beyond its planned lifespan, more recently acting informally as sort of a yacht club for the superyachts tied along its river dock. (we don’t know how much of the interior was utilized for this secondary purpose, but the parking below the elevated structure was) Epic developer Ugo Colombo sold the 1.25 acre wedge of land for a whopping $125 million to German and Gloria Coto, whose family is best known in Argentina for their supermarket chain. The Cotos are planning an 817 foot ‘lighthouse’ condominium tower on the site.
Meanwhile, across the street construction continues at Met Square, the last element of the Metropolitan Miami megaproject which has been years in coming.
