58-Story The Edge On Brickell Gets Zoning Approval

Miami’s office of Planing and Zoning has granted waivers needed under the Miami 21 zoning code to build The Edge On Brickell.

The project is planned for a narrow riverfront lot, on a road which Brickell City Centre owner Swire Properties plans to rebuild to make more pedestrian friendly.

Last year, the developers submitted plans that included 198 hotel rooms, 70 residential units, and a 122 space parking garage. Also included were restaurants at the ground floor and rooftop levels, along with a riverwalk.

Brick Group is the developer, with Kobi Karp the architect.

I wished I aged like the approval process that these projects go through in Miami. I would be 60 years old but only looked 20.

Why are you bemoaning the riverwalk? Unless I read the article incorrectly, it states that the plans “Also included were restaurants at the ground floor and rooftop levels, along with a riverwalk.” Did I, in fact, misinterpret what has been written above?

I pass by that lot every day to work. It’s gonna be an extremely narrow garage and building. I’m surprised they can fit it at all including the River Walk.

Go to New York City or Tokyo and check out how they fit tall buildings in spaces like that.

Workforce or affordable housing on the river? Of course it’s “go never happen.” Build it up the Metrorail line instead of just senior projects, and it will help revitalize those neighborhoods, too!

Sorry, affordable on river and in city is not and will never be a thing and nor should you expect it to be. If you want in city and near water, your going to need more money.

What is the purpose of the Miami 21 zoning code if they keep handing waivers to developers with deep pockets? CORRUPTION ANYONE!

Tbh most possible waivers are largely included in the code as is with clear stipulations as to what conditions can lead to a grant of the waiver. Waivers are also typically either (1) low-grade changes or (2) desirable changes from the code at large. Ie. Parking reductions in transir corridors are by administrative waiver

This will literally blow over the first Cat 2 hurricane we have. Way too much surface area. It also blocks the views from Neo Vertika. I could see this project working in Hallandale though.
