830 Brickell Marks The Start Of Vertical Construction & Releases New Renderings, On Track To Become Miami’s Second Tallest Office Tower In 2021

New renderings of the 830 Brickell tower have been released, and the developers announced the start of vertical construction.

Developer Vladislav Doronin of OKO Group held an event to mark the start of the vertical climb. Completion is on track for 2021.

The tower will become the second tallest office building in Miami at 724 feet above ground when it is completed in 2021. It is also the first major new office building in Miami’s urban core in 10 years.

An upscale rooftop restaurant and bar is planned on level 56 and 57, which the developers say will energize the building at night. There will also be a sky lobby on level 30 with a cafe and a nearly 2,500-square-foot health and wellness center.

Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, which designed the world’s tallest buildings, Burj Khalifa, Jeddah Tower and the tallest residential building in the U.S., New York’s Central Park Tower, is the architect. Interiors are by Italy’s Iosa Ghini Associati, led by Massimo Iosa Ghini. Landscape architecture is by Enzo Enea of Switzerland.

Michael Dell’s MSD Partners provided $300 million in financing.

OKO Group, led by Vladislav Doronin, is the developer, along with partner Cain International.

Not a lot of need. Largest non-healthcare private employer in Miami-Dade is American Airlines with 11,000+ employees, next is Carnival at 3,500, then FPL with 3,000. Only Fortune 500 company headquartered here is Burger King.

That’s probably because the city officials either don’t, or Don’t know how to attract major companies to Miami’s downtown. Shortsighted. Also not enough effort is put into quality schools, crime fighting and general quality of life. So many international companies continue to come to the US. There are experts in the field of bringing major headquarters to major cities. It is not enough for city commissioners to take trips around the world claiming to be enticing major companies. They are not experts, just a bunch of amateurs spending tax payer dollars, having a good time, with no results.

Miami is not as much a business city as it is a tourist destination. If there was the need for more office space it would be being built.

Not sure why the City of Miami attracts tourists. I can see why Miami Beach (a different city) attracts tourists since they have an actual beach and there’s Ocean Drive. If Miami attracts so many tourists, shouldn’t downtown be a bustling metropolis? Where do tourists go after having a Caribbean cruise? I know. Uber to the airport. It’s probably much safer than wondering around an empty downtown that is dark and unwelcoming.

Cause in a town of unintelligent, uneducated people, high quality jobs aren’t necessary. The important work is done be the Harvard/MIT grads in Boston/NYC. Mundane grunt work is what MDC grads were born to do! Now get back to your McD’s or Starbucks barista job… and keep dreaming big dreams, it will be a lot of dreaming. What’s that? Amazon HQ2 finalist? LOL… suuuuure buddy… we TOTALLY had a chance *wink wink*!

Oh but the occasional bone will be thrown to us in the form of a LATAM HQ of someone important doing the real work elsewhere.

Ok, so what are you going to do with a roadway infrastructure that is well under capacity and the City’s answer is electric scooters. I hope everyone was paying attention to Downtown traffic gridlock during Super Bowl week, because that is what you will have with the continued development of super high towers.

That’s why Miami should start investing heavily in infrastructure improvements, namely mass transit options. But unfortunately Miami doesn’t have the leadership to attend to those problems.

There is still enough empty land in Brickell, Downtown, Wynwood, the Design District, and Edgewater to build buildings and house people working in at least six 1100ft towers downtown. Along with an extended Metromover transit system, I don’t think gridlock would be much of a problem for these people.

Plenty of empty land Downtown where these office towers should be built in the CBD. Brickell is getting filled up.

Yes. There are tons of residence condos but hardly any office space in the area.

Not quite how that works. Usually residential comes after office. It’s easier for developers to follow employment centers. It’s not as easy for businesses and developers to make a case for new office space just because there’s a residential population now, especially when land values are higher. Considering retiring/near-retiring Baby Boomers are flocking to zip codes like 33131, I doubt more office, at least to this scale, gets built soon. All the new office that has been built in the last 4 years filled up with existing market tenants. Without a major new company/tenant, there really isn’t a need. Considering this project has over 100,000 SF dedicated to WeWork…really surprised it’s going vertical.

A company that is looking to move here is not interested in waiting around for years given the time it takes for building permits and FAA approvals. If the class A office towers are already available, we stand a better chance to attract them.

I think it’s the lack of talent more than office space. There’s like 20% vacancy of office in downtown right now…it’s definitely talent, not office.

So how do we make it less attractive for boomers? Throw in a few more Ultra Music Festivals or Coachellas? Sounds like the boomers are holding up the progress of the city.
