80-Story Cipriani Tower Is Breaking Ground Today, Brickell’s Tallest Ever

A groundbreaking ceremony is planned today for the 80-Story Cipriani Residences in Brickell, developer Mast Capital announced.

It becomes the tallest tower to ever break ground in Brickell.

The developer said that it has secured a $600m construction loan allowing work to begin, setting a record as the largest single-tower residential construction loan ever obtained in Florida.

Mexico-based Banco Inbursa provided $350 million towards construction, while Ascendant Capital Partners contributed $250 million.

The Cipriani Residences tower is planned to top off at a height of 940 feet above ground, or 950 feet feet above sea level, with 397 condos for sale.

It is now the only tower to ever break ground in Brickell with plans to surpass the 900-foot mark. The current tallest is Panorama Tower at 868 feet.

The new tower is a signature Bernardo Fort-Brescia design by Arquitectonica and interior design firm 1508 London.

Two additional towers are planned to rise 50 and 60 stories on the same property, with 856 units. Those buildings are planned as rental apartments.

Completion of Cipriani Residences is planned in 2028.

Reason to celebrate Miami. This tower is stunning. Cipriani units were selling very well so I knew ground breaking was going to be soon.

The Waldorf stands a chance of reaching 1040 ft. You mean One Brickell City center which is officially under 980 ft.

Seriously, would it be asking too much just to mount a 60′ or 70′ spire to the top.🙏

Sheesh! I was just thinking out loud. Calm down. Most revered skyscrapers in large American cities have them (except Miami), but I suppose you have a problem with that, too.

And for the record, I’ve never heard of a skyscraper catching fire because a lightening bolt struck a spire.🤡

The 305

Miami should make a building that’s exactly 1,000 ft (305m) above ground and or above sea level, since that’s the more common benchmark here. There’s like fours area codes here now and coming soon so maybe 305 isn’t the special number anymore.

1,000 ft is 305 meters.

Meanwhile, the beautiful old 1920s Brickell mansion across the street has finally reopened as an upscale restaurant. We need more of that sort of adaptive reuse.

Have you gone yet?

It’s a Mexican concept that Major Food’s opened up in a French Chateau.

A bit schizophrenic having Mexican in a French Chateau.

I haven’t gone yet, but there’s also the private ZZ’s members club there for the elite of Miami to hob-nob over tacos.

Kidding aside, Major does things very well, so I’m sure it will be good until people get tired of it.

80 floors is not tall enough. This should be a minimum of 100 floors if Miami wants to compete with the world.

Panorama is 85 stories. Waldorf to be 100 and at least a couple others. So how is the tower tallest? Its almost monthly this site falsely claims a new tallest tower.

Anon

read the article more closely, tallest “in Brickell” so that doesn’t reference Waldorf, and it’s 50+ feet taller than Panorama.

Also, which of these “tallest” are actually now under construction…. I can only think of Waldorf, which has been digging in the dirt for a very long time.

You almost gotta’ wonder how many of these “tallest” are actually going to get built.

These guys broke ground at Cipriani and have a Carlos Slim backed loan, so it’s happening.

Nothing wrong with OCD when so many parking podiums are a jumbled mess, but his affixation on on needing liner units for everything regardless of whether it looks good?

Anon

It’s a parking garage with a screen like everywhere else.

Anonymous

Most likely a podium. But the sales-center shows the podium as reflective hinting at it being glass?
Anyway, an UDRB submission 2 years ago show it being just podium screening with an “artistic flare”.. whatever that means?

Meanwhile cities to the south like Fort Lauderdale and west palm beach have a comprehensive development standard.

I’m with you on this one actually. Liner units would look given its location esp next to a park.

It’s not next to a park, there’s a whole lot owned by Y-Tech I believe between it and the park, so ultimately it will have other towers around it. The rendering is throwing in trees making it look like the park extends up to it, but it doesn’t.

YES ITS A FACT. Y TECH , WHOS ALREADY building on Brickell . Plans a 75 story tower on that triangular lot JUST SOUTH of Cipriani. CERVERA also owns a few of the adjoining lots. Maybe they are partnering . There are Many other available lots to the west. Most views south , east & West will be reduced. But Cipriani will still be AMAZING

We seriously need more parks. The government needs to buy lots that are up for sale. Parks actually increase property values of property near to the park. How about that for capitalism!!! Let’s hear it for the people who live in Brickell and own property!!!

I totally agree. The last empty lot available to build a great park and by the water is on 1201 Brickell Bay Drive.
Sadly the City won’t buy/swap it from Cítadel, who recently purchased it to build their future HQ., therefore a new overpopulated tower that will bring more darkness to Miami streets and pedestrians.

The city doesn’t have a waterfront property worthy of swapping, nor do they have the $363m in cash available that Ken Griffin paid for the land to buy it from him.

You should run for office on the platform of using eminent domain to take private property for public benefit. Let us know how that works out for you.
