After nine months of silence from the Brazilian group that bought the former Edge on Brickell development site, a proposal for a new 53-story development is reportedly set to go before city officials on Friday.

The Edge on Brickell had been planned as a 58-story tower with 130 condos, developed through a partnership between Mexican-born Rafael Aragones and Alberto Espinino.

Those plans were scrapped in July when the partnership sold its development site for $18.3 million to Brazilian businessman Leo Macedo, owner of the Brick Group.

“I bought the land, but I am changing the plans,” Macedo told The Real Deal at the time.

Now, as the South Florida Business Journal reported, Macedo is set to take his revised plans before the Miami River Commission Urban Infill & Greenways Subcommittee on Friday.

His new project would have 70 condos, 200 hotel rooms and 182 parking spaces, according to the Business Journal. At 53 stories, its height would come in at five floors shorter than the original Edge on Brickell plans.

Units at the project would range from 1,200 square feet to 2,918 square feet. Amenities would include a ninth-floor pool and gym deck, as well as a 6,480-square-foot restaurant on the roof.
