Babylon may be falling

By
Real Estate Agent with Beachfront Realty 3220434

The Babylon Apartments were the first building built by famed Architeconica. The problem is the owner wants to tear down the 5 story structure and build a 48 story condo in its place.  That would require re-zoning and the neighbors are not happy!

The Babylon has been down this road before but the owner has now left it in a state of disrepair and states it needs to be demolished. Oh the politics...stay tuned. Let's hope the Miami Vice Era building will be made a permanent resident of Bayshore Drive.

It's a cool looking building. I'm assuming it's vacant?

Thank you Robert May I appreciate it. Follow my adventures in south Florida for a different take on reality!

Hi Mimi Foster yes it is vacant. It is such a cool little building which is soooo Miami 80's style.

I spent a lot of time down there until the early 80's. It really is a cool building. Hope they don't tear it down.

Hmm, how come people comment on the building, and I do not see it? Not the building, not the condo, which seems to replace the apartments in the fiuture :(

Marco, I hope Babylon can be saved, although i doesn't sound very promising.
