Brickell Burger King Could Be Replaced With 960-Foot Tower

Brickell’s only Burger King serves thousands of meals to construction workers, but it may soon be replaced by a skyscraper.

Plans were submitted to the FAA last week for a 954-foot tower on the site, which would replace the entire Burger King strip mall at 10 Southwest Eighth Street. It would top out at 960 feet above sea level, thanks to a six-foot elevation of the property.

The developer behind the proposal wasn’t listed.

The property is surrounded on all sides by active development sites. They include Brickell City Centre, SLS Lux, Brickell Heights, and Solitair.

Nice to have another tall tower in the Brickell area, but where am I going to get a Whopper now in Brickell ? I still got coupons you know. 🙁

I was walking by there yesterday and was wondering how the Burger King strip mall was not bought up by a developer. It seems so out of place now.

I wanna live in this building, when i looked on skyscraperpage, it said that it was mixed use. That means that there must be residential units. By the way, I can’t wait to see the renderings.

That property is way too valuable to be an old strip mall in my opinion. Perhaps they can incorporate a Burger King into the new building or another development somewhere close.

Does anyone know what the site is zoned for. Not sure if a tower that tall is allowed there?

The FAA recently cleared that zone to have towers up to 1049 feet I believe. Anything from Downtown right in front of Bayside to Brickell can have 1040 ft towers. If I’m not mistaken.

Simon Karam, Palasan Properties appears to be the owner of the site since 2006.

Zoning base height is 48 stories, 80 stories with bonus height.

Probably looking to sell the property with some sort of approval in place.

It’s razzle-dazzle at the end of the day since the height is not so relevant if you can only build 400 units. Unless you think our thriving office market can assume a lot of space at this location. Another hotel here might not be too thrilling (Starlite Motel excepted).

By all means keep the Burger King at the base – a sorely needed diversion in this sushi neighborhood.

Cheers

Pretty poor street level activation right now. Even worse the next block over on 9th. Yeah, these tall towers are sweet but when all you see are parking garages at the street, it leaves something to be desired.

I have only lived here for 20 years and in that time I have seen our skyline completely change. The Santa Maria was built by the same guy who is now building Flat Iron. The 4 sister buildings at Biscayne (soon to be 5 with 1000 Museum) have also gone up in the same spot where an old Howard Johnson’s used to be. 50 Biscayne replaced that old hotel and just now we are seeing Panorama an 80+ story building go up, not to mention Echo a slim beautiful tower right on Brickell Ave. Considering Miami is only 120 years old compared to NYC that is 392 years old, I think we are doing great.

I agree that we have come a long way. When my family first arrived here in the 60s, the tallest building was the courthouse. However, the premise of my argument is not that we have not evolved, but that those of us who dream of seeing Miami become a real world class city are often dissapointed with grandiose proposals that for one reason or another, never get off the ground. Due to either a downturn in the economy or the meddling and self serving interests of our politicians (I know of at least one developer who was chased away because of some connection to Cuba), many mega projects don’t get past the drawing boards. Remember Airport City? How about the original Met 3? Resorts World Miami, Miopolis at Watson Island, Capital Brickell, Empire World Towers, Miami Innovation Tower, 500 Alton Rd., 600 and 700 Biscayne, Miami Center at One Miami, Ion East, Santander Tower, One Bayfront Plaza, the $120 million renovation of the Marine Stadium, Miami Wilds, Museum Park? These are just a few that I can remember. And now, no mall at MWC. Have you seen the original plans for Metrorail or Metrozoo? In the 70s there was even… Read more »
