Application Submitted To Build Hotel On Perricones Site In Brickell

An application has been submitted to build a hotel on the Perricones site in Brickell, according to Miami Planning & Zoning Department Director Francisco Garcia.

At a May 10 meeting, Garcia told city commissioners that part of the property has been erroneously zoned as a park. The designation was actually intended for an adjacent property, and his department would correct the error administratively.

The adjacent Allen Morris park is mistakenly zoned for high-intensity development, and Garcia said they would swap it back to park zoning.

The mistake was discovered following the hotel application.

A lawyer for the Allen Morris company attended the meeting and objected to rezoning the park, instead wanting to keep it as high intensity. The company is in litigation with the city in an attempt to take back control of the land, claiming the city did not use it as a park as required when deeded over.

Allen Morris is not objecting to high intensity zoning on the Perricones site.

CitizenM paid $16.8 million for the Perricones site in October 2017, with plans to build a 250-room hotel.

This whole explanation of erroneous zoning reaks of classic Miami back room dealings.

The trees and low density is what makes perricones special.

I am probably one of the biggest proponents of out with the old and in with the new, 99% of the time I say level it and put a shinny building on top of it, but even I have to admit that I am sorry to see Perricones go. Yes, I know they are supposed to reopen on the lobby of the hotel but it will just not be the same. My friends call it the Tree Restaurant because it is so beautiful and green inside. I even doubt they will reopen, especially because of the new North Italian Restaurant that is about to open across the street… Oh well, all the bitching is not going to matter, what’s done is done, I have great memories at that place and I will take those with me always.

“Perricones” will reopen, but as a fusion sushi tapa restaurant in a night club setting with a setup for a DJ.

…which is why you make it taller if you want bay views as the selling point. Otherwise, there’s a thing called a city, where views mostly consist of views of other buildings.

Why would you build low income housing in Brickell? There are plenty of areas in Dade County that can accommodate that. Asinine comment!

I mean “the Four Ambassadors are already the low income housing or projects of Brickell “

Your comment is still asinine. Most of the people who live in the Four Ambassadors have owned and lived on Brickell for over 20-30 years, back when Brickell was only where true wealth lived. Brickell is now a fake NYC where most people rent and/or have roommates…and very few own. Those tenants deserve more respect and have more class than you ever will.

So many wonderful trees on that property. Trees are sea level rise mitigators, provide habitat and shade to Miami – a city – where everything grows year round – that has the one of the lowest percentages of tree canopy of any major American city.

I love the park as much as everyone here, but how does a tree mitigate sea level rise.

Trees help prevent water run off which mitigates sea level rise. A single tree won’t help much but every little bit helps!

That is absurd. You are implying that parks and trees help less water go towards the ocean/sea, and as a result helps reduce the long-term rise in elevation of the entire ocean. The global concept of Sea Level Rise has nothing to do with local water run-off.

Do not let reason get in the way of a perfectly emotional argument! Who do you think you are! Mr. Denier!

Sooo maybe one could argue that increasing green spaces instead of constructing a building, would be better for the world, by some incalculably small amount reducing global warming, and in-turn reducing sea level rise. But geez…

How about razing Mary Brickell Village instead or move it to Kendall. Then you can build something meaningfull and keep the last piece of downtown Charme.

Move the Mary Brickell Village to Kendal and the Four Ambassadors to Medley or Homestad and keep Perricone’s where it is now

What’s wrong with Mary Brickell Village? It has more foot traffic than BCC and the Publix is great, that’s for certain.

No way! We need a little slice of Kendall in Brickell. Blue Martini reminds of of why I don’t live in the suburbs without having to drive to the suburbs.

What happened to the two pieces of the Allen Morris Park? Why was Perrcone’s allowed to sell booze on City park land?

The chef could be fired and better one will be hired, the trees and charming will be gone forever!!
Keep the house and park and…..
Since we have 300 Italian restaurants in Brickell, most of them with the same boring menu of pizzas, ravioles and parmigiana, why we don’t keep the restaurant and get a new chef !!!
move on!!

The area should be an urban area.
