Brickell’s “chicken lot” is among those proposed to be added to Miami-Dade’s Rapid Transit Metromover Subzone, hinting that a high intensity development is in the works for the property.
Brazilian developer Galwan won approval in 2016 for a 44-story hotel on the site, designed by Arquitectonica. In 2017, the company announced it would be managed by Wyndham, but no construction work has taken place yet.
Other properties proposed to be added to the RTZ, all in Brickell, include:
Citadel’s property where a 12-unit apartment building was just demolished
The Starlite Motel property, where demolition was just completed
A full block including a shopping center with a CVS at the entrance to Brickell
221 Southwest 11 Street and adjacent lots
Miami Dade’s commission voted to adapt the proposal on a first reading April 18. It is tentatively scheduled for a public hearing before the Transportation, Mobility, and Planning Committee on June 14, 2023.
