800-Foot Towers At One Brickell Getting A Height Increase

Two 800-foot towers planned for Brickell are now planned to rise even taller than before, according to a new filing with the Federal Aviation Administration.

The buildings are part of the three-tower One Brickell complex. Here is how tall they will now rise, according to a July 15 FAA filing:

  • One Brickell, Tower I (Baccarat Residences) is now proposed at 848 feet above ground, or 852 feet above sea level. In 2015, the FAA approved a height for the tower of 828 feet above ground, or 832 feet above sea level.
  • One Brickell Tower III is now proposed for a height of 897 feet above ground, or 901 feet above sea level. In 2015, the FAA approved a height for the tower of 877 feet above ground, or 881 feet above sea level.

One Brickell Tower II was approved by the FAA in 2020 for a height of 550 feet above ground, or 554 feet above sea level. It had previously been approved in 2015 for a height of 635 feet above ground, or 639 feet above sea level. The approval order for Tower II remains valid, unlike those for the other two towers which had expired.

Baccarat Residences (Tower I) is planned to rise 75 stories and include 352 residential units and a 10,000 square foot restaurant, according to a construction permit now under review.

Tower II is planned to rise rise 47 stories and include 506 multifamily rental units, according to a recently issued and now active phased construction permit.

Tower III was planned to rise 82 stories, and include a 249-room five-star hotel along with residential units on the upper floors, according to a 2014 filing with Miami planners.

According to a water and sewer utilities deal completed in March 2020, the combined One Brickell complex is planned to include:

  • 1,400 apartments
  • 249 hotel rooms
  • 24,463 square feet of retail

The residential, hotel, and retail figures exactly match the 2014 filing with Miami Planners. However, the 2014 plan also showed 41,272 square feet of office space, which was not listed in the 2020 utilities deal.

According to the 2014 filing with planners, the combined project is planned to include 1,993 parking spaces.

Miami River, which is already beautiful, will look fantastic on this stretch, with great buildings on every corner, on one side the Icon’s three towers, on the other, the Epic and Aston Martin, after the bridge the three Baccarat towers and, to close, just need to approve the three Hyatt towers.

We need better renderings. With the new Hyatt across the river and One BCC down the street, this area is about to be PACKED.

Im surprised especially with how hot the office market is that there is no office space in this project

830 Brickell is basically within walking distance of this project and we see announcements of new towers containing office space all the time.

Cmon FAA, what’s a few feet between friends?

A few feet, what’s wrong with one more foot? 1049ft? They’re saying “1049ft?.. yep, passenger jets out of MIA can clear that with no problem. But 1050ft?.. nope, nah, noway, adding one extra foot will doom those passenger jets.”

I mean, who came up with that shit?

At Orange County John Wayne, the jets go straight up in the air due to the “wealthy neighbors in Orange Co who do not want to hear the noise”
So, whats up? MIA?

Is that high enough to hear the 747 cargo jets at 1am or do they need to add a few more feet?

Still not impressed with the architecture. Love the project but it’s still a square building with undulating balconies. Big deal. Miami has plenty of that.

Totally agreed but Look who the developer is. Related group hasn’t done anything architecturally significant. They have mastered the cereal box condo though.

This looks better than many towers on the river in Chicago and waterfront towers on NYC & Rio

Agreed but those towers you speak of were built many decades ago. Anything built in 2022+ should look better than older towers. Ultimately these condos sell so there is no incentive for Related to do anything more grand. It is what is is

So every tower needs to be “grand” I love art deco but when NYC was filled with them, they just blended together.

We just want something different is all. Just wishful thinking , no need for the “go and build it yourself” comments.

At least 1 of 5 building should have an Art Deco design

The more recent construction in the Central Park South area and along the Hudson has been meaningfully better than decades past. There are a few really spectacular buildings. Only the Aston Martin has that type of exterior appeal among currently constructed Miami towers. This is a bit of a wasted opportunity. An improvement, but 6.5 out of 10.

The difference is that NYC and Chicago have plenty of great architecture. Miami is all cereal boxes, undulating balconies and parking podiums with an architecturally significant building here and there.

Yet at it’s location on the Brickell Avenue bridge, it’s no Wrigley Building or Tribune Tower. For such a location, it should at least be on par with Aston Martin Residences.

I think we need to wait till the design is a bit more fleshed out. This is still rather conceptual.

while i would usually agree, the way in which the balconies are laid out creates a much more interesting and intricate design. its a lootttt more pleasant to look at than another one of the high rises that just has flat panels of balconies

Too many Chads and Staceys have been moving into this neighborhood lately but I guess it’s better than the riffraff and flimflam that used to call it home

What do you expect from Related? Crappy Arquitectonica architecture rife with design flaws like seeing your neighbor’s toilet from balconies, poorly placed parking garages as if covering with a mural makes it any better), and kitchens designed by somebody who has never cooked in their life.

I’d love to see a new design for these buildings. They’re quite plain and the jagged balconies are harsh.
