888 Brickell Office Tower Submitted For Planning & Zoning Approval

888 Brickell has been submitted for review by Miami’s Planning & Zoning Department.

The tower was reviewed and approved by Miami’s UDRB in December, but still needs department approval. The exterior of the proposed tower is now colorful rather than gray, at suggestion of the UDRB.

Instead of a new submission under Miami 21, the developers are requesting to modify a warrant previously approved for the .52-acre site that included both office and residential space.

Arquitectonica is the architect.

Liked the gray better.

Grey would have been much better, sleek and modern like an office should be. Then install LED to wash over the buildings glass and mullions at night. ??

I liked last year’s grey too. Building elevs say, “Metal Panels With Pearlescent Finish.” Honestly they should’ve just called it iridescent. I really wonder what this cladding is.

I am just happy it is an office not a condo

The original proposal was better. It looked like a classic 1960s SOM skyscraper, but with a consistent contemporary twist. Now it looks like top-heavy cheap crap. The UDRB has its priorities ass-backwards.

Are those not lights? Thought they were. Would look awesome with lights, terrible without.

I agree with everyone else. The lights should just be colors at night. It should be gray or glassy with no color during the day.

Preach! Too bad the UDRB doesn’t read our comments.

Hideous and cheap looking. As usual from Arquitectonica

I actually think this tower will stand out in the bland MIA skyline. Can’t wait to see it

Two-thirds of Arquitectonica’s work this cycle is arguably “bland MIA skyline.”
