Brightline’s MiamiCentral Supertower Sites Are In Contract, Broker Says

The Downtown Miami sites at Brightline’s MiamiCentral where two supertowers are proposed are in contract to be sold, according to the website of the listing broker.

It isn’t clear when the properties went into contract or who the buyer is. However, two residential towers have continued moving through the approval process in recent weeks, hinting that the purchaser may be behind the new plans.

In January, Brightline’s parent company listed the two properties for sale.

In May, preliminary plans for two 83-story residential towers were submitted, replacing earlier plans for hotel and office towers.

The new towers are proposed to have a total of 2,007 residential units, 49,634 square feet of retail, and 2,136 parking spaces.

In August and through September, the new residential towers continued to move through the approval process.

Also in September, the developer began site work to square off one of the supertower sites by moving a city street.

The developer had previously received approval by the FAA for tower of 991 feet above ground, or 1,000 feet above sea level. The new towers are proposed to rise 850 feet.

Please build supertalls that are actually supertalls and not more generic residential twin towers on some of Miami’s most valuable real estate.

do not approve this monstrosity? are n’t you tired of making the same comments?. you are so narrow minded, look at things from a different angle, to you architecture is the only thing that matters. if it was up to you nothing would get approved in downtown miami and it would never develop in to a great neighborhood

No. That is inexcusable. For a “world class city”, people should expect better than this. Besides, this ugly monstrosity is going to dwarf the old courthouse and make it look like an eyesore now. Not just the terrible design of this building, but the lot they are building it in does not mesh with the surrounding area. People really need to start taking pride in their city and stop being Yes people.
