CCCC Towers Site In Brickell Has Been Sold (But A Partner Says The Sale Is Fraudulent)

Brickell’s CCCC Tower site has been sold, according to newly filed court documents.

China City, which owns a 55% stake, is said to have orchestrated the sale.

Asia Allied, which owns a 45% stake, was granted an emergency injunction after learning of a transfer of ownership to a company called Rega Center LLC. Asia Allied says the transfer is fraudulent.

The valuable property is an irreplaceable development site in densely built Brickell, and Chinese developers had planned to build two of Miami’s tallest towers there.

Developer China City Construction later fell into financial difficulties at home and the Miami project was shelved.

The land has sat as a vacant pit for years as two partners battled in a Hong Kong court for control. Excavation of the site two floors below ground occurred in the last decade, and last year the city ordered emergency repairs after declaring the property unsafe.

Another decade of an empty huge lot in an ideal location.

Exactly! Anything and I do mean anything would be better. Whether it is an office tower, rentals, condos, big box stores, hell even a parking lot. Just do something with it!

News like this makes my blood boil. I live at Infinity and I have been staring at this hole for over a decade. I understand that crap happens all the time and properties continue to exchange hands but my question is why can’t they just fill it and make it into a park while they fight it out for years and years. This area could be used for a farmer’s market or anything else people want to do with it. Just fill it already!

Better a hole than two giant towers to block your beautiful view

Not a farmer I actually own in Brickell and the view of another building instead of the ocean is definitely a hit to the value of the condo. Its common sense my guy ! Maybe you should go farm

Only a fool would purchase a condo in Brickell with no expectation that a building would be built that could block his/her so called view in all directions.

You should’ve stayed on that farm in central Florida because you still don’t understand city living.

That is not DEFINITE at all.
Facts and data will support many instances where the opposite is true. JUST because a view is blocked does not mean the values DEFINITELY take a negative hit.
When an OLD building has view blocked by a brand new luxury building, the values of the OLD cheap building are elevated (even if views are blocked) because the old building is now “the worst house in the best neighborhood”.

Because that would cost the owners money and they woudnt get any payback for making it into a park. If you want a park there then you buy the land and you fill the hole and make it into a park. You can even name it after yourself and I’m sure all your Brickell neighbors will love you for it. Perhaps that’s all the payback you need for the investment you will make to create your park. Best of luck.

Yes, all his Brickell neighbors would love another big doggy toilet like the one the Miami Circle site turned into (courtesy of the Miami taxpayers).

Yes, a doggie toilet would be better than a hole in the ground filled with real trash that included mattresses and sofas. Yes, I saw that myself with my own eyes and it was like that for years. Not cool. Now take your toys and go play some where else you dog hater!

And take your money and build the biggest doggy toilet you could imagine and stop thinking somebody would take 100 million of their dollars just to supply one for your little mutt. Now get on back to your usual thing of letting your dog lick your face after he licks his balls.

Why don’t you call “parks and recreation” Leslie would definitely help you. don’t ask Ron Swanson though.

The city should have a clause mandating that which ever developer buys a piece of land should fill it. If you don’t want a park at least pave it and make it into a parking lot. Anything would be better than a hole filled with trash.

One solution is to add up the number of yards of fill dirt and multiply by the cost per yard. Then figure out how many trucks it would take to deliver it and multiply by the cost per truck. Then add the cost of heavy equiptment to move the dirt around properly. Add the permit fees and envronmental fees charged by the municipalities.
THEN, take those costs, and divide by the number of livable square feet in Infinity. Once you have that number, use a SPECIAL ASSESSMENT to charge all the owners of Infinity to fill in the hole so that you can have a Farmer’s Market.
Second solution, you pay for it.
Third solution, quit whining.

They are currently filling it to bring it up to code and put it on the market. This land won’t go on the market for a while as its still is in litigation and with the surplus of luxury condos I don’t see it being anything but empty land for the next 5 years. We are currently in a 3 year oversupply.

It will never happen but this entire block should be a park. Brickell badly needs green space.

Take the people mover to the Metrorail. Then head south to Dadeland station. There, get on a bus (or 2, or 3) to Florida City. Then walk a few miles to Everglades National Park. Green space…National Park even!

OR….walk ONE block to the west for the Underline park.
OR….walk TWO blocks to the north and half a block to the west to Southside Park.
OR….(most preferably) take a LONG walk to the east into Biscayne Bay National Park. (the CCCC Tower site is only 2 blocks from the Biscayne Bay National Park, but whiners should walk 4+ blocks to the east anyway).

Amazing how you missed Simpson Park literally next door

Anonymous

I didn’t. I wrote the number post where #3 referenced Simpson Park which is NOT LITERALLY next door.
LITERALLY next door is Cervera’s building. Simpson is a block away.
If you want to use the literal sense of the word literal.

#1. Something will happen.
#2. “Should” be a park? No, it’s in the Financial District, it should be a commercial building.
#3. “Badly needs green space”?? According to the ruler feature on Google Earth, this parcel is 100 yrds from 9 acre park Simpson Park.

This comment section badly needs people who do not know what they are posting about to stop posting.

It should include the entire block south of SW 14th Terrace, and use the air rights from Simpson Park a block south to build something beast.

I live next door and I believe a park would be a better view instead of a building. An office building wouldn’t be as bad but no more condos there is a surplus!

Are you serious? Fraudulent activity with the sale of something like that? That’s not right. Since this massive twin tower project will never be built, I would build something on it. Maybe a massive resort hotel for families and adults. Or I would build a massive 90 story office tower. Miami needs more office spaces after all.
