Big New Restaurant Files To Build Out Ground Floor Space At SLS Lux In Brickell

At Brickell’s SLS Lux, a restaurant tenant has filed for permits to build out ground floor space that is currently vacant.

The construction permit was filed for this week.

Kaori is listed as the project name. A total of 5,014 square feet is being built out over two floors, with a construction cost estimated at $800,000, permit documents state. Dynamica Architecture is listed as a contact.

Last year, Chef Walter Martino announced plans to open Kaori at SLS Lux in a press release. Kaori was previously located in another ground floor space on the same street.

According to a Loopnet listing, Kaori Sushi by Walter Martino will be taking the entire mezzanine, along with a portion of the ground floor.

Not large enough but I wish a House of Blues would come to Miami.

There was rumored to be a Brooklyn Bowl music venue being built within the Brightline Miami Central Station, but it’s been awhile since I’ve heard any more chatter.

Since the closing of Grand Central, it’d be nice to have another ~1000 person music venue in the heart of Downtown.

If that ever happens it will probably open near Overtown. I don’t see that happening in Brickell.

Isn’t SLS Lux flagship restaurant Katsuya, the same type of cuisine? Seems odd to have such similar restaurants in the same venue.

I never dined at the original location, but I think the concept was more than just Sushi. If I recall correctly, the concept was supposed to be something along the lines of Sublimotion In Ibiza. I believe…

Shake Shack is coming a block away. White Castle doesn’t belong in Brickell, or Miami for that matter.

Hopefully they resolve their issues and do build. There hasn’t been any movement on building for quite a few months.

Buddy…I already have a Buger King spewing the delightful smells of flame-broiled beef across the street to the west, and the Promise of a Shake Shack across the street to the south.

I dont need a White Castle in the…
Yeah I do.

When the queasy mural excuse for “art” fades in the South Florida sun, replacing it with a “green wall” or glass or metal cladding will look so much better.

I agree but as a best practice, lush vegetation should be incorporated as living walls around garages. This is nothing new.

It is always a sense of pride as a Miamian to watch people stop to photograph themselves or their friends in front of the Burgos murals. Or the Botero sculpture.
SLS Bickell is a great building

As I scroll up to look at the Burgos mural again…it strikes me as beautiful.
Locals and tourists are photographing it on a daily basis…always with big smiles on their faces.
I think the person who posted “Ugly ugly ugly parking garage base.” Must have something more extrodinary on his building.
(Or, more likely, he’s a bitter dope who wants to “take cars off the road” and loses his mind when asked to objectively evaluate art.)
