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:

Nice sign, but not as bullish as another commercial office building would be. Not arguing against residential, just hoping downtown and Brickell will still have the real estate for enough commercial buildings to materialize itself appropriately as an urban core.

Unfortunately, the urban core is moving to Doral, Miramar. Can’t figure out why? I mean, to change the views of Biscayne Bay and a beautiful skyline for the views of the Palmetto and a warehouse district is beyond comprehensive

The same with the junk along SW 1st Avenue. It would be a nice twin tower/phase two for the condo tower.

You should buy the lot from them and turn it into a park.

Parks don’t work in Miami.
Look at Bayfront Park. Sits empty all year round and when we had Bicentennial, it was deserted save for a few homeless souls.
Our weather is too humid for the outdoors.

It’s not that Miami’s weather is “too humid for the outdoors,” the issue is that most of these people just want to sit back and whine about something that they haven’t been to in years, a “park.” They love it when they see the “thumbs Up” votes they know they’ll get when they say the word “park.” But in reality, they couldn’t care less about a park.

Parks do work when set up right. My family and I use Margaret Pace Park daily.

Except this block is the worst place to build a park nobody will use sandwiched between busy streets and overlooked by BCC’s fortress-like character.

Heck, you already have the “Miami Circle Park” right down the street. That’s the problem with you “park” people, you don’t wanna go to the ones you already have.

What did they mean by co developing? Leasing some neighbour areas or buying land?
