The project at 340 S.E. 3rd St. includes a 43-story tower (with 391 Zom-developed apartments) with restaurants, retail, and a multi-screen cinema.
“The lighthearted nature of the design makes Met Square a very approachable building, an important quality that will contribute to its success,” Igor Reyes, a partner at Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe & Associates (NBWW), was quoted as saying in South Florida Business Journal. “Originally conceived as the ‘meeting place’ for the users of the preceding Metropolitan Miami buildings (Met I, Met II and Met III), Met Square’s design aesthetic, along with its commercial offerings and historical significance, fulfills its original intention.”
Suffolk Construction topped off the project’s third phase in April, a 32-story residential rental tower on top of the Whole Foods market. The 42,000 sq. ft. grocery store has an 11-story parking podium above it, and above that, 462 residential units.
