Has anyone figured out how to pull up newer permits on the City website?  They've switched over from, for example: MPL2017-00001 to MPL2017-10001.   The newer format with the leading "1" doesn't load in the permit status site.   I'm sure I'm not the only one frustrated by this here!

All gone. I'm going to be optimistic and hope the asphalt is just temporary. I believe the last plan submitted for this lot was affordable housing for the elderly.

Before:

After:

Kinda sad.... 

The old police station coming down? I wont miss it. I do hope the Magic's Entertainment complex has some architectural integrity to it.

I won't miss it's unattractive appearance, but it's been a part of downtown for so long.

It was like an old neighbor who you just got used to seeing even though it wasn't much to look at.

Memories, etc.

Interesting tidbit on NPR this morning about the hurricane and its implication on downtown Miami: Apparently, construction cranes are meant to withstand 140 mph winds. With Irma coming through, the city is urging residents of towers surrounding the construction sites to evacuate because of the potential damage a rampant crane could do. So, this weekend, be thankful for our stumpy high-rises?

Heard that  too but thought their crane count was actually around 40 - double the 20 she mentioned.

They put the cranes in "weather vane" mode. They aren't locked into any one position, which allows them to turn whichever direction the wind is blowing like a wind direction indicator.

The Seacoast building seems to have lost windows on the upper stories during the storm.

That street looked to have got it bad. Must have created some sort of wind tunnel between them. I walked down there the day after and there was glass everywhere and many of the awnings down.

Seacoast or Seaside?

Seaside...I had to look it up, had no idea they were different. The awnings on The Plaza on that street were torn off and the Chase sign was hanging. Glass everywhere.
