Brickell’s 75-Story Baccarat Residences To Begin Vertical Construction In Fall

Baccarat Residences in Brickell is now 75 percent sold and will soon begin vertical construction.

The developers told Ocean Drive that vertical construction on the 75-story tower will begin this Fall.

A construction permit for the tower is now in process by Miami’s Building Department, records show.

Earlier this month, the developers filed plans with the FAA to increase the height of the tower to 848 feet above ground, or 852 feet above sea level.

The project will include 318 tower residences, along with 28 riverfront flats and duplexes.

There will also be 73,000 square feet of amenity space, including an Orangery. Interiors are being designed by Meyer Davis.

One of the new residents of the building will be the Baccarat North America President and CEO Jim Shreve, who recently purchased a condo unit.

Completion is set for 2025.

Archaealogists have been working on the property since earlier this year after prehistoric remains were found following demolition of on office building.

A site plan included in the Baccarat brochure shows three towers. A construction permit is in process for both the Baccarat tower and a second apartment tower closer to the street. A third tower that will replace the 444 Brickell office building is not yet in permitting.

The project will also include a publicly-accessible riverwalk.

Stunning! But even more excited for a fully connected riverwalk!

Why do we keep seeing renderings that show 1 tower but sometimes multiple? Seems odd to market the first as a stand alone when we know more are coming.

Hi. I purchased at Baccarat on DAY ONE. It was ALWAYS explained that there will be THREE towers. NO SECRETS! To the south of the lot , likely a rental , of about 47 floors. To the east…south east, a slightly taller tower than the baccarat residences. Completely independent, a Baccarat Hotel & Residences . 100% agreed. Most of the units will NOT have FULL east or even south views, but ALL will face direct bay & have stunning open views towards the ocean. Being on the river, lends to being in a fantastic location. Everyone in this tower , will know exactly how the future views will be. Everyone knows that baccarat is in the perfect central location. The unique entry driveway will be incredible. Nothing like it in Miami. The shared public BAYWALK on the river super charming. The quality & service of the Baccarat residences will be stupendous, especially for the relatively cheap prices in today’s market. The planned 3 towers at Hyatt , on the north of the river, will make Baccarat even more desirable. I’m super Excited for Baccarat to start construction. There’s still time to get in & be my neighbor.

How much did they pay you to say that?

ZERO. I’ve been living in Miami & Miami Beach for 23 years. I’ve always purchased & lived in the best buildings ; having bought all pre construction. I think I judged pretty well. Eg. Portofino Tower. Murano at Portofino. Setai. Bath Club. I have a good sense of selecting a great building , with an unbeatable location.

Terry If they told you on day one and have nothing to hide; why are they still using different renderings?

There is simply no excuse.

For the same reason that the Ferraris in the advertisements are not jumbled in with other cars during rush hour.

The product that they are selling is pictured standing individually so you can judge its attributes.

Robin…

It’s not a tactic….but if it were, the world is blessed to have such a keen observer and brave consumer advocate as you Robin!

Well Robin. Very tue , I know what you’re saying , but almost all developers show their towers as being alone , and free standing. Yep…Definitely, they want their buildings to shine. I have no relationship to the developer, nor their sale staff. Sales staff were very clear & honest from the get go , in explaining that there are 3 towers going up on their property. It’s also been known for several years , that this ONE BRICKELL development will have THREE towers. Unless, you’re buying direct bay front , there are or will always be towers next to you , and new ones popping up , and taking away some views. Baccarat residences will ALL have open river & bay views forever , never to be blocked. When you purchase, you know exactly the views. Baccarat will be one of the top buildings in Brickell , on the river , with incredible quality & lovely views.

The Miami River with all these towers it’s looking more and more each day to the Chicago River!

I’m at a loss. Where is our Tribune Tower or Wrigley Building? Marina City looks better than any Related development of cereal boxes with jagged balconies, and that was built sixty years ago.

Unfortunately, Miami won’t have the pre-WWII architecture that NYC, Chicago, and some older cities do. We will have to make do with creativity and competition in bringing about a new, bold skyline. One thing that works against visual appeal is also an economic benefit to the city, namely the clear zoning of developable land. Combined with the FAA regulations, there is a disincentive to top buildings in a tapered manner which is more graceful. The squared off buildings maximimize the square footage, and you can’t blame the developers for that. It’s incentive.

probably but Miami is heading in the wrong direction by-in-large, architecturally, if it wants to have an iconic skyline.

Sorry for your loss.

The Chicago River parallel makes sense when you compare the similarity of Navy Pier to Bayside, the Financial District to Brickell and density tapering off as you move down the river to an eventually marine industrial use.

Miami was founded in 1896. Three years after the Columbus Exposition in Chicago. Of course Chicago buildings are older.

ALL the units have decent views . All see open bay to the ocean & many also have views to the west. Plus all units overlook the amenity pool deck. Of course , as in any building , some apartments having better views than others. But pricing takes that into consideration. The Baccarat, with its location , quality , and amenities, will be one of the premium buildings on Brickell.

If only they paid as much attention to the exterior as the interior, until you realize it’s a recycled ArQUEEFtectonica monstrosity with a luxury brand stamped on it. It’s as if Related believes it worked for Aston Martin, expect that is a beautiful tower.

3 Towers will be an awwwwmazing sight…

Anonymous

Exciting and also getting ridiculous! They are building way too many extremely tall towers next to each other or a couple of blocks away.
They need to spread them out more.
The skyline will look like a giant mountain near the Miami river and some parts of Brickell.
It will be difficult to appreciate a beautiful architectural building if you can barely see most of it. And the people that move in these buildings will not have the views that they paid big bucks for. But that’s obviously their choice to make.
I think that the skyline near the freedom tower will be much prettier to look at although the Waldorf super tall is an eyesore. It’s not beautiful, creative and interesting but more like a little kid that got careless with his Lego blocks.
