48-Story Project With 665 Units In Twin Towers Planned Near Brickell Metrorail Station

A developer has announced plans for a twin-tower project in Brickell that will rise 48 stories, according to the SFBJ.

Alta Development has a contract to purchase five lots a block from the Brickell Metrorail station for a total of $31 million. The total lot size is about an acre.

The walk to the Brickell station will be about 50 yards.

The two new towers under planning will have a total of 665 apartments. They will be smaller units, so that rent payments will be more manageable.

Great to see all this development in Brickell, however the city has invested zero effort in infrastructure to support 10’s of thousands of new residents in the coming years.

100 percent agree, I know they have a smart plan but I don’t think that will be enough

It’s disheartening that some people will agree 100% with a statement that is 100% false.

If you care about the community, get educated about how it works and get involved in the processes.

Brickell Density can be easily tripled. Imagine all these new towers with 10 story parking decks. unless you live & work in Brickell – this area will be hell from a mobility point of view.

How will the mobility be hell in this area when there’s the Metrorail with a connection to the Metromover nearby?

How does someone who lives in Doral or Hialeah arrive in Brickell? they have to drive buddy. Not everyone works for a tech firm or hedge fund. Tons of service workers that commute into the area. You must be one of the people that lives under a rock on mom and dads dime.

You must be reading a different definition of hell than what most reasonable people think of hell.

One thing that has been consistent in the 30 years that I’ve lived or worked in Brickell is that people whine about traffic. In public, no one wants to hang around with them. On the internet, misery loves company.

Wow.
Catch up.
10’s of millions of dollars have been invested in water and sewer in Brickell. Specially the new pump station on the very street that this property is located.

10’s of millions is greater than “invested zero”.

I love the new development.

I would like to see even more density in this area as it is directly adjacent to MetroRail and MetroMover.

So to him, the Metrorail and Metromover there don’t mean shit!

What’s it like up there on your high horse? Sorry not everyone wants to look at run down, disgusting apartment buildings on their neighborhood run.

With all the increased density, let’s start thinking of pedestrianizing some streets — maybe start with South Miami Ave from SW 12th up to SW 7th. Force cars to park in structures and not on the streets.

And nothing of value will be lost. After the suburban strip malls and drive-through restaurants, these should have been the first buildings to go in West Brickell redevelopment. We lost too many pre-war buildings which could have been preserved as restaurants, boutique hotels, etc. in between new towers which would have made the neighborhood more interesting.

Yeah.. over twenty five years ago, that what some people said about those old dilapidated low rise motels and hotels on Biscayne Blvd. As you see, nobody has taken their money and redeveloped the BS in that area, save for one or two little dinky motels that look like they belong in the 1940’s.

Interestly, in 2005, there were two little apartment buildings at 1040 and 1060 Brickell Avenue.

It’s not that long ago….now instead of 24 units, there are more than 500 housing units, a school, a bakery, hair salon, and multiple restaurants on the same site. If TNM were around then, someone would lament the “mobility issues”, the parking pedestal, and the sidewalks not being wide enough for their personal liking because of a developer rickisking a lot to change the face of a neighborhood.

I”m all for building big and building up!! I’m also elated that Miami is growing at such an unprecedented rate!! I think this city is absolutely amazing and I welcome every building big, bigger, and even the small ones!! Miami is quickly on the way to being our country’s 2nd biggest city. and I love every bit of it!! Having said that I have to be devil’s advocate a little as well. The water treatment station that was mentioned is hardly a giant infrastructure marvel when it comes to the10’s of thousands that are expected to infiltrate the city, Not to mention you can’t sneeze anymore without spending 10 million dollars on a city project. also this water treatment facility is not really new but all part of a much needed upgrade that according to florida legislation has to be done by 2025, So really you can’t say that was all for this construction that is going on like crazy here. I’ll give it to you that Miami dade county went further than they had to and spent more than was necessary stating it was vital for the future of miami dade county, but let’s be realistic, those changes and upgrades had to happen anyway whether one building gets built or a thousand, miami was running against a ticking legislative time clock that was going to ring no matter what!! You can’t give the City of Miami props for fixing something it blatantly ignored for years and now was going to be disastrous if not fixed and fixed quick!!

Everyone also mentions this one metro station as an end all cure all to crowd control as well, when the reality is with an influx of thousands of people there will be an influx of twice as many cars, and as the buildings might have planned for it with parking the downtown area is not even closely equipped to handle thousands and thousands of extra cars and the metro station is hardly a drop in the bucket compared to what we are going to need if all of these places pan out!! that station will be so inundated with people it will be a nightmare. There will be fights, thefts, forced sexual misconduct, trash, and all sorts of other terrible scenes going down!! it will not be safe at all. Like i like is said I’m all for growing big and such, but we need to make these big companies that are bringing all these people here more accountable as well, they shouldn’t get a free pass for bringing revenue to the city if all the revenue they are bringing cost the city twice as much to deal with. and while we are on the subject of costing the city money, I thought Miami was sinking?? I thought i read that within 20 years the city will be so bad people will have to start moving? So is it really safe to build upwards of 70 high rises with ove 30 of them higher than 500 feet, in a city that is sinking?? I’m all for progress, growth, you need that in big cities for them to survive. but Im also for not losing thousands and thousands of lives through preventable disasters too. We’ve all seen them happen, and after they happen the blame game starts, when it really doesn’t matter then, it’s too late. Big cities trust me the bigger the better in my book, but we have to be at least somewhat cautious and smart about what we are doing to the future of this city. Our kids, their kids, your loved ones; what good am i as a parent if i don’t take into account what my children will have to suffer though after I’m gone!! Growth and progress is amazing to me, but growth just for $$ is a recipe for disaster!!
