830 Brickell Is Finally Approved By Miami’s Planning Department, Ten Months After Groundbreaking

Miami’s Planning Department has granted approval for the 830 Brickell office tower to be built, across from Brickell City Centre.

In a notification issued on its website, the Planning Department said that a final decision had been made on November 13 to approve the project with conditions. The application had been submitted in December 2018.

The 57-story tower will rise 724 feet, making it the second tallest office building in Miami.

At the top of the tower will be a two-story space with a restaurant and bar.

Michael Dell’s MSD Partners has issued $300 million in construction financing to build the tower. WeWork has signed a lease to occupy ten floors, totaling 146,000 square feet .

Oko Group and Cain International are the developers. Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture is the architect.

Miami currently has some of the highest office rents in the nation. I recently saw an article that said it was number two after NY. Hopefully this tower along with some of the others proposed (if ever built) will produce a supply that gets absorbed moderately slow in hopes of driving rates down thus attracting out of state firms to relocate to Miami. I love that hedge funds are relocating to Miami but those firms manage lots of money with a relatively small staff. We need to attract firms that employee thousands. Currently Texas is winning at this also due to their low cost of living/ great schools but we need to make Miami competitive.

Lol, where did you see it’s number 2 behind NYC? Austin, San Francisco, Boston, and DC all have higher Class-A and overall office $/SF. Check JLL’s Q3 reports.

hedge funds are relocating single teams, few people at most, not the entire operations, plus ESL and Icahn are in Bal Harbour, not Miami. The way it works, some big shot just wants to be in Miami/Sobe and they relocate him plus few people. Thats the whole story, there has not be one real big hedge fund that move entire operations to miami. There is a building on washington in sobe that houses a few, but again, these are few people each.

Wait, is this the block that had the Latin American cafeteria and where the Chicken Kitchen used to be? I had no idea there was enough space to build this huge building in its place. I’m truly happy the bird is gone and now it is time to go next door and kill the king. That burger king plaza needs to go, it is completely out dated.

Rooftop Restaurant vibes: “Well, Hector here’s the game plan. You’re gonna bring us two Absolut martinis, you know how I like ’em, straight up. And then precisely seven and one half minutes after that you’re gonna bring us two more. And then two more after that every five minutes until one of us passes the f*** out.”

Won’t change any more than the market. With the exception of really bad real estate brokers, everyone knew that site was going to be a tall building.

SLS Lux Rooftop Pool & Barbecue at 60 stories will be about same height is the 830 Brickell Restaurant, that will be very cool.

Probably the future location of a Bad Boys IX stunt where they jump from one building to the other (in their Rascal Scooters).

So according to the rendering, this tower doesn’t share a block with a crappy 7-Eleven, instead a shady area twice the size it is.

Nice to see the buildings get taller and taller. Construction costs are more to build taller and the views get more spectacular. Keep building taller and taller.

In the last 4 years 10+ new buildings of 50-80 floors have been built. Not 1 road was added, not one school was open. Miami city is disastrous at planning, blinded by $$ developers bring with zero desire to care of Miami residents. Brickell ave is already clogged , it will only get worse

Good to see more office buildings are being built in Miami instead of ultra lux condos with balconies.
