Brickell Development With 1,300 Units Gets Water & Sewer, Construction Permit Expedited

The developer of a three-tower project in Brickell has completed a utilities deal and requested expedited construction permit review.

The project includes three towers rising 80, 60, and 50 stories. The tallest tower will top off at 940 feet above ground and 950 feet above sea level.

According to a utilities agreements with Miami-Dade completed June 27, there will be two multifamily towers with a combined:

  • 880 apartments
  • 7,100 square feet of full service restaurant

The 80-story Cipriani condo tower was completed under a separate utilities deal on the same day. The agreement states that the condo tower will have:

  • 420 apartments
  • 11,200 square feet of full service restaurant

Two separate construction permits are now being reviewed by Miami’s Building Department, for both the multifamily towers and the condo tower.

On June 10, an agent for the developer requested expedited life and safety review of the construction permit for the two multifamily towers, which had 519 plan sheets filed June 7. The request was approved on June 13.

According to a note on the request, the project is targeting a foundation permit. “Fire needs to comment so that the foundation process can get issued,” the note said.

Expedited life and safety review of the 80-story condo tower (which had 446 plan sheets filed June 14) was requested on June 16, with the developer also saying a foundation permit is also being targeted.

Private provider review is being used for both construction permits.

Construction financing for both the multifamily towers and condo tower has already been secured, the developer has said.

The reason you see so many empty lots in Overtown, Liberty City, and other areas is because back in the mid to late 1970’s and early 80’s when crack cocaine was devastating Miami, the elected politicians in the city instituted a law that said any vacant apartment building or house with hopeless drug addicts occupying them will be torn down. To this day, you’re actually still witnessing some of the results of that law.

Little Havana’s is over land assemblages, speculation, however. Hopefully, more prewar historic single-family and apartment houses can be historically designated, with air rights sold to build taller development on vacant land and that money used to restore them for boutique hotel or residential properties, or even restaurants, etc. depending on proximity to commercial areas.

With all the demand for housing, please add another 50 feet to the tallest one so we can get a supertall!

Sensational. This is a quieter side of the Brfickell area, great for bayfront walks on Brickell Bay Dr, right next to the Metromover station and steps away from all the hustle and bustle of the Mary Village and Brickell City Center restaurants. On top of that, the tower complex is super tall and beautiful.

I don’t know who you are, but I know you’re boring. Brickell is written three times in the text above. If a is misspelled, with an “f” in the middle, it is clearly a typo. Try to do something better for people and for your city, worry about the big mistakes of life and the world, no, with nonsense.

What is your comment in response to? Also, that Publix is my local one and couldn’t disagree with your assessment more. I moved from Brickell recently and the Edgewater Publix is so much easier to get around than any of the Brickell ones. Way less congested and more options.

Let’s go! Brickell still has lots of vacant lots (and blight to demolish in West Brickell) to build more of these beauties. Let’s keep building!

Haha.. we have the Everglades National Park which has thousands upon thousands of nothing but green acres in this county and near this city but somebody is calling this place “an inferior major city” because he thinks it lacks “green space.”

People like this make me laugh…

We have Simpson Park right across the street, which is an urban oasis and great transition between high-rise Brickell part of Greater Downtown Miami, and low-rise and mid-rise (depending on the street and excluding along Biscayne Bay) South Brickell.

A National park 40 miles away is not equivalent to a neighborhood park.

Simpson Park is a 9 acre park across the street. Southside park is 3 blocks away. The Biscayne Bay National Park is 2 blocks away.

Are you kidding me? Southside is just an grassy esplanade with a basketball court and Simpson is all fenced with 1 entrance. Far from the real and great parks in the middle of major cities (Hyde Park, Central Park, St. Jame’s Park, Parc de la Ciutadella, Bosque de Chapultepec). The Everglades doesn’t count, that’s more than 20 miles away from Brickell, I doubt you could do morning walks/jogs if you live in Brickell.

I notice you didn’t say anything about Biscayne National Park or the beaches. If a park is outside people like you doors, then forget it, those other parks are just “useless.”

Checo

No….living in Brickell, the morning runs were along the Biscayne Bay watching Dolphins swim, sailboats sails across the water, and the sunrise over the Atlantic Ocean.
Sometimes, along the Miami River Greenway.
Sometimes along the Underline.

The dopey poster who suggested that the city block owned by MAST Capital should be a public green space is simply undereducated on the topic and/or the geography of Brickell.

You don’t seem to understand that the comment about MAST Capital’s land being converted 100% to a “greenspace” would not compare to the parks that you mentioned.
(However, you do so sound very fancy when impress us with your Google results) Kudos.

The topic of the initial comment is “we need more green space”, not beaches, dolphins, yachts or bay. And my reply is to whoever dare to mention the insignificant Simpson and Southside “parks” a few steps away from us who reside in Brickell (the “city”) as a response.

Great project but we need more grocery stores, and anything other than another Publix. There are thousands of more units coming live and no news of any new grocery stores or food markets in Brickell. We’re in dire need of more.

The rising rents have been great though for pricing out the riffraff of which Miami had and still has plenty!

Fill?
It will need somewhere around zero yards of fill. The foundation will likely be the same as the foundation drawn and prepared before.

Even it needed clean fill….the phrase “dirt cheap” exists for a reason. Fill is not expensive.

Too bad it couldn’t be two Cipriani towers, or at least better architecture for the two cigarette box apartment buildings. I fear they will build those and cancel the tallest, like with the Metropolitan development.
