Brickell City Centre Streetscape Deal Could Hint At Northward Expansion

Brickell City Centre Streetscape Deal Could Hint At Northward Expansion

Miami Dade commissioners are set to vote on a deal with Brickell City Centre that could result in improvements for pedestrians.

As part of the deal, Brickell City Centre will pay for and build lighting, hardscape, and other improvements to improve the pedestrian experience.

Additionally, 15 parking spaces currently used by County Bridge Maintenance will be replaced and made available to county employees.

That could hint that Brickell City Centre is preparing a northward expansion towards the Miami River.

The agreement does not state the exact location of the parking spaces or the streetscape improvements. However, the county does have parking spaces under the bridge on SE 5th Street, where Brickell City Centre’s North Squared lot is located (and currently vacant). It is also across from land on the Miami River owned by Carlos Mattos, who is a partner with Brickell City Centre on another lot.

Chinese people make impatient people in the West look like Tibetan monks. I’m sure they want to build, but the approval process is so unnecessarily long.

It feels like just yesterday I was walking past the vacant lots at BCC on my way to Transit Lounge or Tobacco Road. Damn, I’m getting old. But I love that I’ve been able to witness the development of Brickell and Miami in general. Love this city, even with all its imperfections.

Off topic, but I just drove by the new SLS Lux and couldn’t believe the narrow pedestrian walkway in front of the building which is blocked by greenery in the middle of the walkway. I wonder who approved that.

You complain after saying you “drove by.” This is the thing that gets me about a lot of you commenters on this site, you complain about something that won’t affect you one iota. The constant whining about the width of these new buildings empty sidewalks is stale and worn out, and I wish you people will just cut it out because it sometimes makes reading comments on this site a waste of time and displeasing.

It’s sad when a developer has to do something the city should have done a long time ago.

Swire has proven itself as a long term partner of Miami with lots of skin in the game and have essentially transformed brickell forever single handedly and this seems like a natural extension of their development and vision…plus the ar3a next the river there is awful for pedestrians and needs serious updrages it’s actually embarrassing at this point I bet most people have never walked around there its dismal.

One streetscape improvement should be to give Miami Avenue a road diet so that pedestrians can cross between the two sides of the mall. This is clearly what they want to do, because they had to replant much bigger landscaping to block the paths people were obviously taking to cross mid-block. Two lanes and a bike lane is still too much but three lanes is nuts. Cars just use the randomly wider block to speed up after exiting the narrower parts further south, which are much better for people on foot.
