65-Story Brickell Flatiron, With 552 Units, Launches Sales

65-Story Brickell Flatiron, With 552 Units, Launches Sales

Sales are now underway for 552 residential units at Brickell Flatiron, a 750-foot tall mixed-use tower that is being developed by Ugo Colombo’s CMC Group and Russian billionaire Vladislav Doronin, who once dated Naomi Campbell. Unit prices start at just under $400,000.

The 65-story tower at 1001 S. Miami Ave. will also include 40,000 square feet of retail space, adding to a flood of new retail space planned for the area.

Architect Luis Revuelta designed the tower. Construction is slated to begin by the end of the year.

Another rendering that shows very little because if they were to show what it would really look like on that lot no one would be impressed. They would do better as rentals than selling. You have 2 lane streets on every side of this lot so it’s going to be a huge building feeling dumped on and squeezed in to Brickell. Eventually all south Miami avenue will become buildings so you’re going to be able to hop onto your neighbors balcony from this building.

Like in NYC where the price 2,000-3,000 $/ per square foot.

Only that NYC condo buildings don’t really have balconies and those that do face Central Park so I would take that for 2,000-3,000/sq/ft. Buildings that close together don’t have windows on those sides. However, look at 500 Brickell West tower and the new MyBrickell. The bottom floors of those two buildings will never see sunlight – just their neighbors faces or a concrete wall. http://i.imgur.com/7Y6DoMY.jpg

I’m sorry did I read that correctly? Sean from Curbed was a design consultant on the project? Today is May 1, not April 1. What a f****ing joke! Ha!!

Woah. Don’t be so rude. We may know Sean as the guy from Curbed, but I’m sure he’s talented at many other things. No need to insult.

Well, after all, that is a clever way to gurantee Curbed’s press coverage; however, Sean is already critiquing the rendering that was released as inaccurate. I guess Sean’s consultation wasn’t that effective.

Ugo Colombo is the best developer in Miami, so I am sure this building will be up to par.

I think all these developments are actually going to scare away people. Across the street to the east you will have 1010 Brickell, next door to 1010 Brickell is 1060 Brickell and next to that the under construction The Bond. Across the street from The Bond is 1100 Millecento. Diagonal from Flatiron you have NINE and 3 towers belonging to Brickell Heights. That is 8 new buildings within 1-2 block radius! If you had 4 lane streets that would be fine but these streets are merely 2 lanes. Traffic is going to be awful and I haven’t even mentioned Brickell City Center. I don’t understand how politicians can continue to approve all these constructions when there is no more room for car traffic which makes it dangerous for pedestrians. Not all South Miami Avenue has wide sidewalks.

I understand your sentiment, but at some point you just have to say: sell your car and walk, or take the metro. This isn’t Kendall.

You really think people selling their cars is the answer? Local tourism would vanish. No car? okay, forget traveling to the Keys, Orlando, St. Augustine, Naples and all the other beaches and getaways available OUTSIDE OF BRICKELL. Getting rid of cars doesn’t even exist in NY because people use it to travel out of the city with their families. So it’s not a matter of selling your car. It’s a matter of building within the means to make places liveable. NYC has skyrise after skyrise but it also has a great subway system and 2 main roads (one on each side of the city) of minimum 3 lanes to transport all the cars, which really in their majority are taxis, informal taxis, and rich people in their black Cadillac SUVs or Lincolns with chauffeurs.

Miami does not have the transit system to become NYC. That being said tons of people in NYC don’t have cars, especially Manhattan. I cost thousands of dollars to park cars in NYC. Need to go somewhere Zipcar, Car2Go, rent a car. I am not telling people to sell cars but there will be a segment of the population who does not want a car and if they actually get that transit line to Miami Beach and up Biscayne into the Design District and Wynwood in future expansion cars will not be needed in Miami. I won’t hold my breath though on that.

I concur, a 65 story building is not right for that area in Brickell.

We live in Brickell and we already got rid of one of our cars. The main reason we still have the other car is because one of us doesn’t work near downtown. Outside of work most of what we do is right here and that is only going to get better with the addition of 2 huge malls coming.

And again you seem to be missing the entire point. You talk about how bad traffic is going to be IN BRICKELL. You can keep your car to go outside Brickell. But why would you care that much about the traffic in Brickell when you are walking/taking metromover while in Brickell.

The complaints of people here are beyond absurd.

Yeah, you can get metromover or metrorail if you don’t get run over first by the speeding cars on 1st Ave and South Miami avenue

I walk across these streets every day. Some how I’m still alive.

I have to agree with UMdev on this one. Brickell is not going back to being a bunch of mansions on the bay. I’ve seen the old photos, they were sweet, but the city has evolved and is now a dense, urban metropolis on the rise. At this point, increasing the critical mass by adding more people, more retail, more dining, more entertainment ultimately equates to more culture. And moreover, I too am blown away by how dramatic some of the commenters are regarding the pedestrian safety. I walk across these streets countless times everyday and do not feel even slightly unsafe. It is way calmer than in many other cities.

I am still, however, absolutely blown away by how absurd the appointment of Sean from Curbed as “Design Consultant” is. Literally, one of the most shocking things and bewildering things Ugo could have announced. Really takes away from his credibility.

I care because you already have to run to get across the street if you don’t want to be hit by a car. Fortunately, you have spots where no cars come for 5 seconds that allows you to rush across south Miami avenue or 1st Ave. Increase vehicular traffic with all these buildings and on top of the narrow sidewalks on these 2 of 3 main streets (and only) and you’ll see more cars hitting pedestrians. You’ve already seen it on Brickell Bay Drive which is lined up with condos and cars getting in and out.

Just jog across the street, for a pedestrian to get run over, I feel it is the fault of the driver and pedestrian. Everyone knows that Miami drivers can’t be trusted…keep your head on a swivel and you’ll be fine.

Awful idea. Building may be nice but it needs more breathing room. Also, it has nothing of a “Flatiron” concept. Ugo trying to build something that was planned 5-10 years ago when the area was different. He needs to revise the magnitude of that project in terms of lot size – height is good. Good thing is rental prices in brickell will start to drop drastically in 2-3 years with 12 new buildings out in the market and we know they will be empty due to investor buyers mainly.

Wow Brickell ave will be concrete jungle of the south by the year 2020 with all this cool project can’t wait I hope they do the same with north part of downtown

The problem is not the building causing the traffic it’s really the people who don’t know how to drive and a lot pedestrian who don’t know how to use the cross walk they jaywalk a lot I too walk the street a lot in downtown and is amazing how it change good for Miami

Great to see different opinions,as always,those that love what Brickell is becoming rejoice,those who hate it,it’s a free country,move,find your “paradise”,you owe it to yourself.There are bigger forces at work here,this place is fulfilling it’s destiny.And another thing,”the more people in the streets,the less cars”.At a certain point it becomes too much pain to drive localy if you can just walk and it becomes a habit.

I don’t think the majority of negative comments have to do with Brickell. At least not in my case and you can see my comments throughout the post. My concern is not the amount of buildings going up in Brickell. I leave that up to market to decide whether it continues or crashes. My main concern is that this corridor of South Miami Avenue and 1st street lacks pedestrian friendly elements (wide sidewalks, well lit, etc.). To think that residents moving into one of these 12 buildings in this corridor won’t come with at least 1 car is absurd and so when you combine addition of all these new cars and amount of new foot traffic this specific area cannot support it. In addition, wouldn’t it be nice to have ample walking space like Biscayne Blvd does especially when you are awaiting thousands of new residents to Brickell? I don’t see the metromover being much of a solution when I’ve seen homeless outside the Brickell station urinating in the corners of station.

Amazing that someone would consider buying at close to $700 a sft in a bldg. with 15 units per floor with NO views and verrrrryyyyyyyy looooong corridors.
walk to your 01 and 02 residence and pass thru 20 doors ..

that is not $700 a sft..or even $400 a sft

UMdev

Another poster with no ideal what they talking about. From the elevator to lines 01 and 02 you would walk by 5 doors. Most of the units you will only have to walk by 2-3 doors and 3 of the lines you wouldn’t walk by any doors. And a lot of the upper floors will have views of the bay. Also it’s not only about vies anymore. Location is beginning to trump the views. Ugo is planning a higher quality building than the stuff selling for $500-$600 so of course it should be priced accordingly.

Would you rather pay $700 at One Paraiso with nothing around or pay $700 to be in the heart of everything.

would rather buy in Bond that in this job…a lot less than $700 with views or at SLS Lux at $650 but with private elevators or at $600/$650 in Paraiso or Biscayne Beach with views…by the way those are still bargains when you compare what waterfront units in Brickell with private elevators go for.
went today and sold a unit for a client in ONE Paraiso on the 10th floor ON THE BAY…great deal.
Just a thought.
I think its overpriced…1MM 2 bedroom units seems step

UMdev

To each his own. Look at the Bond’s floor plans and get back to me. And again Miami has grown up. Who cares if you have views if you have nothing close by to walk to, no transit options, etc.

I’m sure to people who don’t actually live in Miami they might think they are getting good value for water views in edge water, but if you actually plan to live here there is no comparison. There is much in Edgewater and no plans of anything substantial coming. There’s no parking and soon traffic will suck. That’s a big difference from being a few blocks from everything that brickell has and metromover and metrorail stops nearby.

funny comments, looked at the plans again; and to get to the unit 01 you have to pass infront of the doors of unit 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 and 10…
on your way back you may also become friends with units 11,12,13,14 and 15..while waiting together at the elevator.
just look the plans.

UMdev
UMdev

Line 9 is though another door by itself. So to get to 01 you would pass line 6 unit, 3 on each side. I don’t see how that’s anywhere near 20 doors. Stupid argument.

Has anyone see the site for this project? http://www.brickellflatironmiami.com/ Is it me or are they falsely advertising with that rendering on the homepage? They cut-off the west tower of 1060 Brickell! I guess they don’t want buyers to see that they won’t really have that nice view but instead have a building right in front. Funny how this rendering give you the impression of unobstructed bay views when in reality you will have The Bond and 1010 Brickell blocking that view seen on their homepage (unless you live on floor 50+ and have millions to but those). One other thing to note. More of those views will become nonexistent when Panaroma Tower rises 60+ floors behind 1060 Brickell and 60+ floor Echo Brickell goes up next to Four Seasons.

Walt

I notice a lot of developers do this with the false advertising. Look at MyBrickell, all the renderings show it as if you were looking at the city from Watson island.

I guess they didn’t want people to realize that the building would be blocked by city centre within a few years.

UMdev
UMdev

It’s a rendering. They’re trying to show off the building. I guess if you’ve never come to Brickell you could be misled. But why would you buy a unit without even setting foot where the actual site is. Any idiot whose looked at the site is going to realize there are actually buildings around it.

Fernando
Fernando

That rendering on homepage shows off the building? you barely see the building. Would be interesting to see what homepage you get. Also, have in mind buyers of Brickell buildings are investors that live out of state and mostly out of country. They probably come to Brickell once a year at most and in a year you have dramatic changes. I would agree with you that they are idiots if they don’t do their homework and instead rely on their brokers to find them properties.

UMdev

The rendering on the homepage shows the upper floors. The building to the east is 1060 Brickell. The wast tower is 35 floors while this building is 65 floors. The only thing they don’t show in that rendering is the future Bond project which is 40 something floors. It’s the tallest planned building in the area. The top floors are going to have views of the bay which is what they’re showing.

Manhattan in miami, I think its great. I dont currently live in brickell but buildings like 1010, nine, echo, brickellhouse, and others really have me considering making the move. I hang out in brickell often so I wouldn’t mind resting my head there either. People complain about traffic in brickell when its a very walkable city. Just go with the flow, it is what it is. Miami should have more to it than just sobe. The Miami world resort is coming the new museum of science and museum park, and city center in brickell, c’mon its great for our city, why reject it? Embrace it. Oh not to mention the jobs that will be created by this.
