Across From Brickell City Centre, Israeli Developer Planning Brickell Gateway Tower

The owner of a property across from Brickell City Centre appears to be preparing plans to build a mixed-use tower, a newly released rendering shows.

Gazit Horizons purchased the property in 2017 The company trades on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange.

Renderings were included in a presentation to shareholders last month. The project is referred to as Brickell Gateway, and it will have up to 650,000 square feet.

The company “is currently designing a mixed-use building to satisfy the unmet office, hotel and residential demand in this live, work, play submarket,” their website states. A building up to 48 stories is allowed by zoning, it says.

Multiple lower levels of the tower shown in the rendering appear to be retail and commercial space, with no parking garage.

The company is a subsidiary of Gazit Globe, a large Israeli real estate company. Gazit paid $29.5 million for the 21,210 square foot site in 2017.

In May, CEO Chaim Katzman told investors on a conference call that the building currently on the Brickell site was scheduled to be demolished, and that he would share additional news regarding the property soon.

A demolition permit does not yet appear to have been filed, city records show.

Gazit had previously marketed retail space at a project called 90SW8, which would have seen the existing building redeveloped in a design by Touzet Studio. A listing for the smaller redevelopment was removed from real estate website Loopnet in May.

Demonstrates how much more elegant a building can be without a parking podium.

A parking is a parking and will always be a parking.
Have you ever wondered why Europeans put them underground?

Too bad most new buildings built in Europe today look so awful, they make Arquitectonica look like McKim, Mead & White.

It’s taken into consideration when the project is completed. Maybe 20 years from now we can have that much activity.

Rich folks wanna have some junk food every once in a while. Don’t knock down the BK

This man has a point.
As a “rich folk” I do dig a nice Double Cheese Burger from BK.
Its something about the flame broiling, and how that works with the pickles and mustard.
Now… I’m digging the Shake Shack a block away.
Knocking down the BK in favor of something that affords a highest and best use is a great idea.

You can put a burger king in one of the buildings. I’m all for Walgreens, 7-11s, BKs, etc. Just in more complementary structures.

Hahaha….if you had any disposable income, i’d bet you that the Boycott d’jour will have no effect on Equinox/Soul cycle/Relateds’ busuness.
The ignorant boycott game facilitated the rise of Chik-fil-a to #1.

Its a rendering. The Gym is an example of a tenant. It’s not real.

At least twenty buildings like this from Wynwood to the Design District would be nice.

“Unmet residential demand”? The market is completely flooded right now and I’m sure prices will be ridiculously high.

This article has a number of mistakes about the zoning profile. It should mention that only 243 apartment units are permitted with this relatively small site.

The article states that this building will, along with residences, contain offices and a hotel.

There’s probably only about 70k sf left for “hotel and office”. after the residential is built out.

It looks like most of the tower is office. That’s good.
