One Brickell’s Riverwalk, Rental Units, Parking & Other Details

Arquitectonica has released updated renderings of tweaked plans for One Brickell, the three-tower megaproject planned at 444 Brickell Avenue.

Related Group and GTIS Partners bought the property in 2014 for $104 million, with plans to develop the project in phases.

The developer recently told the Miami River Commission that they would consider opening the river walk as part of the first phase of the project on a temporary, five-foot dock behind the property. A 2-story parking garage with no waterfront setback will remain on the site until the second phase of construction begins.

Eventually, a permanent riverwalk which meets minimum requirements will be built.

Related representatives also said that they will be purchasing 868,399 square feet of additional density rights, for which they are considering several options, including a $15 million public benefits contribution. They are also seeking a 30% reduction in parking requirements due to proximity to public transportation.

A Related rep told the commission that the second tower would be built as rentals – unusual for the developer. The remainder of the project consists of condos, hotel and office space.

    Nothing has changed. Another set of block, square buildings with no interesting architectural features, other than moving balconies around to create a theme. This is so old, boring and repetitive. Just look at SLS, B. City Center, and all the other Architectonica projects conceived in the last 5 years.

    A monstrosity. Hideous and out of scale for the neighborhood.

      Out of scale for the neighborhood? At the border between Brickell and Downtown? Also remember that the rendering is a little exaggerated for effect, it will not loom that much higher than its neighbors.

        Apparantly Eon has never been to Miami.

    This looks great and better than any other building surrounding it. The only people who will have a problem with this are the disgruntled residents of 500 Brickell and Brickell on the River who will clearly have their views completely eliminated. Viceroy, Mynt, and Epic will also be affected but to a lesser degree.
