960-Foot Tower Across From Brickell City Centre Has A Name: Brickell Market Place

The tower that could replace Brickell’s Burger King is named Brickell Market Place, according to a new filing by the developer.

If approved by the FAA, the tower will rise 954 feet above ground, or 960 feet above sea level. The proposal reached interim status with the FAA this week.

The Burger King strip mall at 10 Southwest Eighth Street is surrounded on all sides by active development sites, including Brickell City Centre, SLS Lux, Brickell Heights, and Solitair.

Brickell Market Place lists Grace Dillon, a project manager at Claro Development, as a contact for the project.

Get out of town Miami 1
Sounds like you were raised in this country. What’s wrong with density? For your information, the kind of density you are talking about would pale in comparison to the vibrant most exciting cities in the world. And that is exactly what makes them what they are: Hong Kong, Paris, Tokyo, London, Shanghai, New York

miami1 never said anything about density…somebody needs a drink

I agree with the second Anonymous, but yes, the density on this particular corner will be extremely tight. The space between this new project and the building almost completed next to it will be closer than SLS and Infinity; and it might even be tighter than 10 Museum Park and 1000 Museum in Downtown. You will be able to open your balcony and almost be able to shake hands with your neighbor.

I was born in DC and have always lived in a city, my comment was not against density, just stating the facts. We are definitely headed to being the Manhattan of the South, and I for one think that is great! That is why I live and work in Brickell.

Ok, how about: That intersection is going to be great with awesome density like world class cities as New York, London, Paris, Shanghai, Tokyo and Hong Kong! Shish, you’ve probably never been to any of them…me? I’ve been to three on that list…with two more coming up next year!

You can always move to Orlando and live in an enclosed gated community.

Don’t think miami 1 meant “insane” as a negative here.

How does everyone take “insane” used in the format of “That party is going to be insane!” as a negative comment?

You think so,look at that US-41,third world road,like any road,Avenue ,highway in Miami.Total disaster. That stretch of I-95 from downtown to North Miami Beach total disgrace,every time I drive it I got crazy.
Brickell Avenue from that ugly brickell bridge to Echo building is another third world road,landscape is so poor and old,it’s very dark by night,there’s nothing to tell, you are in most expensive Avenue in Florida.
And list goes on and on,but nobody cares. Do our city officials see that,do they care?
I want Miami to be the most beautiful city in the world,I want to be proud to live in Miami,but day by day,month by month,year by year, nothing has changed .
By the way our Bayside Market is exactly third world market place . Maybe would fit in Dania Beach or Hollywood Beach but in Miami on the most expensive piece of property in US,we deserve better, much,much, much better.

I find Brickell gorgeous too, when I was little I used to watch Miami Vice and wanted to live here so bad. Every morning when I wake up and I see the skyline now I cannot believe I am living out my dream.

The intersection will turn into huge parking lot as cars won’t be able to move. 8th street is 2 lane street.Imagine traffic going to Brickell City centre, add to that Brickell Heights, SLS lux residents and EAST hotel guests and we are talking about major congestion. Who in the right mindapproved this in the CityHall? Needless to say all those luxury pools on 9th floor in Brickell Heights and SLS Lux will never get sunlight

With that name it can’t be another condo project. we need an office boom!!!

Fredric

Agreed. In so many urban centers around the US the problem has been the opposite, too much office and not enough high-end residential. Not so in Miami.

That’s what I’m talking about. If only 3-4 tall office buildings get built it would change so much.

Build it! Also, maybe add 40 more feet. You know, to make it a supertall.

Hope not, but how do you know? I am moving into Brickell Heights facing North and this means to me that I will lose the view completely. Needless to say few years of construction in front of my nose

Architectonica designed yet anoth 1025 ft tower coming to the corner of Brickell ave and 7th street. One Brickell Centre is the name of project. It is insane how the city allows to flood inventory. Surely there will be another real estate crash of market

This info has no substance, we need more details. I wonder if Claro Development already owns the project.

Who the hell needs another tower in already absurdly congested Brickell? There is no road to move around. Not to mention that yet another building will kill market for all developments. Inventory is already ridiculously overflown. What is Miami city thinking??
