Brickell World Plaza’s 903-Foot Second Phase Revived

The developer of Brickell World Plaza is once again actively planning to build a second, 70-story tower.

On January 20, 2016, developer Brickell Financial Center, LLC filed an application with zoning officials to divide the larger second tower into several phases, while otherwise keeping the plans exactly the same.

The project already has MUSP approval, with a smaller 40-story tower at 600 Brickell Avenue completed in 2011.

Phase 1 of the project included a 40-story tower with 505,303 square feet of non-residential space, mostly office. The building has been occupied since being completed.

The second phase is to include 463,483 square feet of office and retail, along with 364 hotel rooms and 134 condo units totaling 552,278 square feet. Development of that 903-foot tower will now be split into three separate phases.

These people are quality developers. They built the first tower with hurricane impact windows tested to withstand winds over 200 mph. And a fortress with generators and data backup for Cat 5 hurricane.

The federal government should definitely create a new visa for people that buy homes worth at least $500000. Before anybody says that this is selling citizenship, this would help our economy because each new home creates at least 4 jobs. Give out a maximum of 20000 of these visas, you’d create at least 80000 jobs. That’s not bad. And for all of us here who love seeing new skyscrapers built, you’d see more of them built.

Great point. If the visas are capped then demand will be huge!

could they just get the visa and then flip the home? w/ all these new speculators might lead to another crash.

That’s a good point and easy to solve. All you’d need is 10 year hold to sell later. Seems easy to do but of course the GOP is a child that can’t reason for shit

Phase 1 of this project is one of the highest quality developments in the whole city. Hope this moves forward. And it seems to show high quality materials and design are achievable in Miami.

I like that split at the top of that building. At that height it would look like two separate towers when viewing the skyline from a distance. ?

With yesterday’s announcement across the river at Epic East and two more 800 and 900 footers today from out of town deep pocket developers that Miami is the new ” Field of Dreams “. Build it and They will come.

There are so many projects going on that I didn’t even know about this one. I thought this one was part of BCC. Now there is a Brickell world plaza ? First time I hear about this.

its mostly office space so the first phase should succeed in this office space tight market.

It’s true. It’s great to have a view but view is king. Smarter people are buying in older buildings which its views won’t be disrupted and remodel the interiors.

No, people, at least many of us, prefer new buildings because they have higher ceilings, newer kitchens and bathrooms and better amenities. Older buildings are fine but there will always be a demand for new ones just as there will always be a demand for new cars.

Sucks to be an East facing owner of Rise.

Disappointing also they didn’t update the design. I’ve always thought 600 Brickell was a little boring….the second phase only adds to that.

A smart move would be to put one of the MWC retailers like Bloomingdale’s or Macy’s on the ground floors of the site. Maybe even a Nordstrom. Would definitely compliment Brickell City Center right next door.

Reach is the building being affected, not Rise. Love the look and feel to 600 Brickell. Very Manhattan. Killer addition.
