Brickell City Centre Developer Expanding To Yet Another Block

Another block is being added to the plans of developer Swire Properties next to the Brickell City Centre development.

Swire has agreed to a deal with Carlos Mattos to co-develop the property where the Tobacco Road bar once stood, according to The Real Deal. Mattos owns the entire 72,000-square foot triangular block.

A residential development is planned for the site.

Swire already controls at least two more blocks adjacent to Brickell City Centre.

To the east, Swire owns the 700 Brickell Avenue block, where they plan an 80-story mixed-use tower to become the Brickell Avenue gateway to the project.

Swire also owns a vacant block called North Squared, just north of the newly opened La Centrale Italian food hall. It is slated for residential use.

Mattos owns the block to the north of North Squared, directly on the Miami River. That property could potentially allow access to the river for Brickell City Centre.



an organic italian pizza restaurant called di pompei will soon open on the former tobacco road property, including an on-site vegetable garden:
