Dade Commonwealth Building

Historic Downtown Miami Skyscraper, Approved for Almost Complete Demolition, Lists for $21M

The Dade Commonwealth Building, built in Miami's halcyon 1920s, the year 1927 to be exact, has stood the test of time. Its unique rooftop crenelation, according to historical lore, was due to a hurricane that hit during construction, slicing the building at the eighth floor and causing the builders to just leave it there. Now it's on the market, according to a listing at Loopnet, for a total of $21 million, with permits approved for its demolition with the exception of the first three stories of the facade.
