MDM Group's Met Square, the fourth and final portion of the Metropolitan Miami megaproject, has broken ground according to a press release. So, basically that big, gapping void between the first Met tower and the Marriott Marquis that had that amazing archeological site is being filled in with the 43 story tower, designed by Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe, that was always destined to go there. It will have a fancy shmancy 18-screen Silverspot Cinema, restaraunts, and a 391 unit apartment tower on top. There will be a small archeological museum situation on the ground floor that will show off relics of a Tequesta Indian settlement and the Royal Palm Hotel under glass, as well as a plaza with preserved archeological remnants. So, we'll see how that works out.
