888 Brickell Supertall Developer Files Revisions; New Rendering Released

JDS Development Group has filed revised plans with Miami-Dade County for the 888 Brickell tower.

The tower is still planned to rise to a supertall height of exactly 1,049 feet, the maximum permitted in the area.

With the revisions, 888 Brickell is now planned to include:

  • 259 residential units
  • 52,144 square feet of health/fitness
  • 38,727 square feet of food and beverage space
  • approximately 273 parking spaces

Studio Sofield remains the building designer, with ODP listed as the architect of record.

According to a July Bloomberg report, Major Food Group is no longer a partner in the development.

A new hotel partner is likely to be announced by the end of the year, the report said.

Condo sales were expected to begin in the fall, with prices ranging from $1.6 million to $11 million, the report said.

 

A new rendering of the ground level. The developer says they are putting extra care into thoughtful implementation of urban planning principles, including pedestrian emphasis and connectivity:

Streamline Moderne is different than this sort of Art Deco. Still, it’s a style that fits and is welcome here.

Since when is Miami famous for Art Deco architecture, or any other type of historic architecture? Now, the city of Miami Beach is not only famous for having Art Deco structures all over that city, but, it also happens to have an Art Deco district. Something that the old politicians from Miami would have never cared about doing to preserve the historic buildings of that city. Actually, now that I’m thinking about it, today’s Miami politicians also don’t care about preserving the few historic buildings that are still remaining in their city.

It will be a world class city when the monorail or right rail which was approved to run from downtown to South Beach in 2002 (remember the penny tax to build same ?! ) is finally built . Any news on that? What about the extension of the Metromover to Midtown, Winwood in the Design District? once all of that is done then Miami can be considered a world-class city !

There are no plans for any of that. Keep dreaming though.

Usually, world class cities are full of historic buildings, and Miami is the total opposite of those cities.

Lmao what?! All I see is a sidewalk that has a treeless planting strip and abuts a lifeless stone wall. And the other facade is multiple curb cuts and a heavily recessed entry.

I get what you’re saying but there are developers who do not include the dropoff area, which essentially turns one lane of traffic into their dedicated drop-off zone and it becomes a nightmare for pedestrians AND drivers. It’s not much but it’s appreciated; especially with the integrations of public art, lighting, and landscaping.

Cough* The EPIC building. Going Northbound on the 3-lane Brickell Ave, it becomes 2 lanes on the bridge, and by EPIC to 1 lane thanks to the lame design of the EPIC with no dropoff zone. This is a complete nightmare and not sure why authorities keep allowing this. The EPIC made that lane theirs.

The nightmare traffic/valet situation at Epic was the sole reason I didn’t buy a unit there. It’s such a shame it’s such a shitshow. The building itself is great.

They have off street loading and drop-off by the lobby entrance. The road narrows typically because of the construction lane closures.

Reminds me of how the CitizenM developers said they took into account the “pedestrian experience” when it was literally a skinny sidewalk with some landscaping that looks like it was bought from The Home Depot. Unlike CitizenM, however, at least this tower has great architecture. Considering for years, the Brickell standard was a tower set back with a massive and underutilized plaza, building at the street is an appreciated change.

I’m perplexed at how some people talk about sidewalks in this city when photos always show how mainly lifeless they are in the day time due to the heat and humidity.

Miami could actually use some more bold names for its buildings like why not just call one “Big C•ck Tower” and totally differentiate ourselves from other cities unwilling to go that far

Assume this will have a lot of commercial space for customers not living in buidling. 50k sq ft of ‘health and fitness’ space seems a bit much for 250 resident units, many of which are likely unoccupied majority of time. Be nice to get some great commercial amenities.

259 residential units for a supertall structure? Does each tenant get a whole floor? Hopefully we get realistic housing for average Miamians one day.

There is plenty of housing for average miamians in other parts of the city. Brickell is one of the most desirable locations, hence luxury buildings.
