Baccarat Hotel & Residences Planned At 444 Brickell With Three Towers At Up To 82 Stories

Brickell is getting a Baccarat Hotel & Residences at 444 Brickell.

Developer Related Group is teaming with Baccarat on the project, according to The Real Deal.

The project, formerly known as One Brickell, will include three towers and retain Arquitectonica as the architect, the report said. (In 2019, Related’s Jon Paul Perez said he wanted to do a Brickell waterfront project designed by either Cesar Pelli or Rem Koolhaas).

The towers will rise 57 stories, 77 stories, and 82 stories, according to the website.

In November, the developer obtained FAA approval to build three towers on the property:

  • Tower I (550 feet above ground, 554 feet above sea level)
  • Tower II (828 feet above ground, 832 feet above sea level)
  • Tower III (877 feet above ground, 881 feet above sea level)

According to a 2014 submission to Miami’s planning department, the project will include:

  • 1,400 residential units
  • 249 hotel units
  • 41,272 square feet of office space
  • 24,263 square feet of retail space
  • 1,993 parking spaces

The tower with the the hotel units is the tallest of the three.

The developer recently agreed to pay $519,992 to the Miami-Dade school board for concurrency for 1,400 apartments.

They have also applied for a construction permit for a 47-story tower, and for a demolition permit for a building at 77 Southeast 5th Street. The most recent activity on that construction permit is January 14.

John Moriarty & Associates is the contractor listed in the permit.

A riverwalk is also planned behind the towers.

In 2014, the developer committed to building the riverwalk regardless of whether the project is built in phases, as a condition of approval.

Related has worked with the team behind Baccarat Hotels before.

The CEO of Baccarat operator SH Hotels is Arash Azarbarzin, a founder of SBE Hotels. Related and SBE were partners on projects including multiple SLS and Hyde properties in the Miami area.

Barry Sternlicht, a Miami resident and founder of Starwood, is the chairman of SH.

1000% spot on. They have a terrible reputation as a developer. They cut corners all the time and change renderings and scale down on amenities after their sales team hits over 50% sold. Rinse and repeat. Its all they do. FCK THEM. I hope Baccarat holds them to a higher standard since their name is tied to this project.

TRUTH! Our Inspector caught-on to them replacing a large area of our luxury unit finishes with filler material and just covering it up. Caught red-handed they were forced to fix it. They made sure to hide their ‘shortcut’ better after our inspection, so no other owner noticed and they got their units as-is. Disgusting behaviour, especially on a high-end project. Bottom-of-the-barrel developer for sure!

Commission Musk to build the brickel tunnel under the bridge and brickel ave needs a complete make over to make it more pedestrian friendly!

It’d be nice if they make the entrance to the tunnel around 13th st and make the area between there and the Brickell key bridge pedestrian except for the intersections.

At least one of those towers, maybe the smaller one, should be offices.

Icon brickell? That looks like a mix of 1980s and early 2000s coming together Wth are the weird statues and yellow chandelier for? The outside is where the magic really happens.

Icon is a great location, but the 485 building trashes the whole complex. Without the giant AirBnB that exists at 485 (due to no restrictions on rental duration), I think you’d see people combining units in all the buildings to take advantage of the location. Refinishing the hallways and atrocious elevator lobbies would be easy.

What? You just described what makes the Icon so sought after by the rich and affluent. Surely they are moving to newer buildings now, but Icon was the IT spot of Miami for many years, and it still is, just with more competition from newer developments now.

Unit sizes aren’t particularly big at Icon, and there are lot of small units in all buildings. Finish levels in the public spaces aren’t high. Ceiling heights are 9 feet except on a few floors. From what I can tell, the supercar fleet that hangs out there is mostly short term rentals. That said, it could easily be revitalized. After all, it came out at a terrible moment in time, and the ownership is split. 485 is just a problem. It’s not the hotel, it’s the AirBnB.

I live across the street from the property, they put up a fence this morning and began some demolition. Not sure if this was the mystery groundbreaking though.

If it is a Related product expect low and cheap quality finishes. Plus that condo/hotel concept is horrible. Just look at Icon and Epic in Brickell, or even worst the Hydes in Hollywood. I know people in those buildings that on weekends look for somewhere else to go because of the crowds, and the type of clientele you get all over. So imagine investing almost $1M in a “luxury” condo but on weekends you gotta run to the keys for some peaceful times.

Looks great. However, Downtown Miami has awful traffic problems and this and all new constructions just keep making it worse. Aside from additional parking spaces these buildings should include connections to the metro mover or metro rail to reduce street traffic. Currently you can fly in to MIA and take the train into Downtown which saves you time and money but its not promoted very much.

7 years later this shit still isn’t built! You would think these developers would stop talking and start building before something else goes wrong! Approval after approval but no movement!

The design is utterly without grace. I’m sure that makes it very popular with the architecture community.
