Brickell City Centre Files To Amend Special Area Plan

Brickell City Centre Files To Amend Special Area Plan

Swire Properties is said to have submitted a revision to the Special Area Plan for Brickell City Centre, which could include new northward expansion plan (The Next Miami is working to obtain the full application).

The application lists 650 South Miami Avenue as the address. If correct, it would mean Brickell City Centre will be expanding to the former Tobacco Road block (Swire reportedly made a deal with the owner of the property in February).

In March, County Commissioners approved a deal with Swire that will allow the developer to improve the streetscape in the area north of Brickell City Centre where the project is said to be expanding to.

I wish they can bring back Tobacco Road. A lot of memories there.

All the crap on the north of the Miami Avenue curve and SW 7th Street along the river has to go like yesterday.

Fantastic.. expanding Brickell City Center is a no-brainer. Has completely revived the Brickell area.

Seems like it has actually killed Brickell Ave where there used to be tons of restaurants its now dead and kind of quiet.

I agree, Brickell looks like a mall food court now. All chain restaurants. What a Shame! I miss the old Brickell.

Then you don’t live in Brickell. I used to walk from One Broadway to Latitude and this area was just a shopping center and a huge empty lot. BCC has transformed the area.

If you were walking down Miami Ave at night, it was the area where you would kinda look over your shoulder every minute or so because it was dark and while it wasn’t blight, it wasn’t the cleanest

I hope they can at least work the facades of these buildings into any expansion.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Yes!!! It would be a shame to lose those smaller facades. They add to the charm of the area, not everything has to be steel and glass ya know!!!

Does this mean eventually no more Massaman Curry at Bonding? Say it ain’t so! But excited to see what the future holds for this little pocket of Brickell

It only makes sense to progress onto these disheveled lots, just hope they implement those wide sidewalks they did with BCC bright days ahead!!

Any idea when they will stop renewing these leases? Aside from the great happy hour and dining at River Oyster Bar and Thai dishes at Bonding, I will miss the small classes and great coaches at Epic Gym—really not looking forward to signing up at Equinox…

Brickell Center nice looks but seems to be disaster to shop keepers. I think those renegotiated rents will go on for years.
