Brickell City Centre Developer Buys More Land From State

Swire Properties has closed on the purchase of more land near their Brickell City Centre project. The deal was recorded earlier this month.

BCC Road Improvement LLC, an affiliate of Swire, paid $1.5 million for a parcel at 500 South Miami Avenue, next to the South Miami Avenue bridge. It is now used as surface parking.

It is the same LLC that acquired property from the city of Miami in 2014 for $4.8 million. That land was used to build a traffic circle at the end of the bridge.

The newly acquired land is considered to have high archaeological potential. As part of the sale, Swire signed a covenant agreeing to comply with local historic preservation laws before starting any construction.

They could just be buying it to prevent someone else from buying it and building something they don’t like. 1.5 million is nothing for Swire.

They already announced plans to build a 62 floor residential tower on this site. Go back to July 16 in the archives of this site.

What the hell is “high archaeological potential?” You mean they might find some stone circle or pointed sticks, and forced to turn into a park nobody will use?

Not true.. are you forgetting the people with dogs who will use it as their own personal doggy toilet?

Probably, like the one next to the icon, the Miami circle , that one is a doggy park that cost taxpayers 24 millions dollars in 1994 and for the last 24 years is covered with soul and grass and not well kept either!!!

Ridiculous to think anyone is going to give a flying f. to 4 pieces of stone. For all I know even the natives never intended any posterity

Hopefully this is the idea as there is no way to get to the other side at the moment.
