$190M Gallery At West Brickell Breaks Ground: ‘Largest Single-Phase Public/Private Project In The County’

A groundbreaking ceremony was held yesterday for the Gallery at West Brickell. Construction is now underway.

It is the the largest single-phase public/private project in the county, with an estimated investment of roughly $190M, developer Related Group said.

The project will rise 29 stories, or 304 feet and include:

  • 465 rental apartments (163 workforce/affordable, 302 market-rate)
  • 2,240 square feet of office space
  • 2,338 square feet of retail
  • 529 parking spaces in an 11-story garage (70 reserved for the school next door)

According to the Herald, affordable apartment rents will start at $750 per month for a studio, while market rate apartments will top out at $3,950 per month for a three-bedroom unit.

In order to win the rights to develop the Gallery at West Brickell on county land, Related agreed to pay 16.5% of available net cash flow from the completed building to the county, plus a $1.6 million up-front payment, according to Local 10.

Completion is scheduled for spring 2025.

Next door, a seven-story school called Southside K-8 Center is under construction, with completion scheduled for next year. The school building will also include ten 1-bedroom apartments for teachers.

Every month hundreds of new units are announced for Brickell bringing thousands of young adults plus kids. And not one single square yard of park area ever gets propoesedby the city to accommodate all these kids and pets.
Right now, Brickell could us 3 full city block sized parks with flat level lawns for passive recreation.

The city should take like 20% of the”impact” fees to aquirebuildings, assemble a block, nuke em all, then build these 3 city blocks. They have the money but NEVER disclose where it goes! Impact fees shouldn’t always be thought of as road asphalt and sidewalk concrete. We need park areas with huge shady perimeters of oak and mahogany trees!

Come on City of Miami ‘Parks’ Department! Build something!

Lets see. In Brickell and around this area is the:

Jose Marte Park
Brickell Soccer & Padel Park
Southside Park
Triangle Park
Simpson Park

And not that far is Alice Wainwright Park along with Commodore Trailhead and Miami Rock Ridge. And you can conveniently jump on Rickenbacker Causeway and go to Hobie Island Beach Park North, and Virginia Key Beach Park.

I just named a few places that’s very easy to get to! So I don’t understand what this complaint about not enough “Parks” in and around Miami is all about?

I agree 10000% being in NYC for more than a month its crazy to see how much more dedicated park space there is. We need a massive park somewhere in the center and more cohesiveness among the city planning. All they are doing is letting developers run amok with no foresight for the future.

They should sell the air rights for taller towers in the same area. Same with the Riverview Historic District in Little Havana, encouraging more designation, restoration, and TDRs.

To my other point, it would be really cool if the building had some art space or a full scale art gallery to go with the theme of the building. Brickell needs more galleries and art and intellectually stimulating entertainment, aside from the amazing food and nightlife. It would also be enriching for the students to have a fire art presence in the area.

Brickell needs more affordable eateries. We have plenty of fancy restaurants (which are great!), but not enough casual options.

This city needs “affordable housing” like this, as long as tenants are well qualified and management has strict application process to deter fraud. They need to do due diligence on applicants and maintain the high quality standards of this beautiful neighborhood as it continues to evolve into a walkable urban paradise.

They also need to fill the retail with high-quality amenities that uplift the community, like health and fitness clubs, bistros, pet stores, salons, fresh markets, bike shops, and boutique clothing retailers.

Agree that the tacky mural work degrades the overall design – they should do some type of textural natural or metallic material facade like wood or stone panels or something more modern to go with overall aesthetic.

At least Related lined up the balconies, but yeah… Is that “art” in the corners really necessary? I looks like f-ing tattoos. Use stone slab veneer or something.

Well I guess (in your opinion) anyone patronizing the retail portion of this building don’t need anywhere to park if they come in a vehicle?

It’s a city. Street parking or find a garage within a few blocks.

Mmmm… I bet you root for the all the new building proposals that have no parking spaces and the residents have to share a parking garage with every Tom, Dick, and Harry. Those office workers and people patronizing the retail portions of this building should be scrambling and scrapping to find a place to park on the streets or in a parking garage as far as you’re concerned… right?
