Chinese Targeting Early 2016 Groundbreaking For CCCC Miami Towers In Brickell

China City Construction Corp. and American Da Tang Group are targeting early 2016 to begin construction on a Brickell project that could become the tallest in Miami.

CCCC Miami Towers, as the project is named, will be ‘iconic for Miami,’ American Da Tang’s Shanjie Li told Curbed. The developers are hoping to negotiate with the FAA to build Miami’s tallest tower, but emphasize that height is only one factor in what will make the project iconic. The height of the project could be as tall as 1,069 feet.

Li said that residential, retail, and offices are among the uses planned for the project. TNM reported earlier this month that the towers would also include a hotel operated by a luxury brand such as Shangri La, Kempinski, or Aman Resorts.

The developer also confirmed that they were close to finalizing a deal to purchase a property in South Beach for a beach club. Li said that that the club would be ‘much smaller than’ six acres and was ‘eager to correct’ a report in TNM about the size of the beach club.  ‘We don’t know where that website got the information,’ he said.

Are there any designs and pictures available for this project? TNM should ask the developer, after all 2016 is only 98 days away.

Yes, the preliminary designs are in a previous report done by TNM. They are not very definitive, but you can kinda get the idea.

You mean ‘a rendering’. That is not a finished design. It was still very diagramatic.

Rendering, preliminary designs, what’s the difference? I didn’t say they were showing a “finished design.” And as far as “it was still very diagramatic,” didn’t my comment say the preliminary designs are not very definitive?”

Early 2016…? Where is the design, and permit? Do they know how slow the process in Miami is?

How is this possible without any plans yet? Takes a little time to get them approved and stuff.

I guess you are privy to CCCC’s every decision. Just because you are in the dark doesn’t mean that they are a bunch of idiots making annoucements just to befuddle people like you.

The approval process is public and takes more than the time they say they’ll deliver. Guess people like you just like to feign importance by insulting others and implying you know more than you do

It’s ok, he is a communist.

Did you know that the word “communist” is a derivative of the word “community?”

Nah, you probably didn’t.

The approval process may be public but CCCC’s plans aren’t known to the public until they release them. CCCC said they plan on starting construction in early 2016, that’s from January to April, a total of seven months from now, enough time to release plans, have them approved, and start construction.

Again, are you privy to CCCC’s every decision?…because you stated “How is this possible without any plans yet?”

That seems totally realistic, assuming they submit, like, tomorrow, use the end of that gap (ie April), have no back and forth with the board/FAA, and completely back it themselves without any pre-sales or financing. Seems legit

The approval to build on the site was purchased by CCCC from the Capital at Brickell owners. They are looking to get approval from the FAA for an additional 20 feet in height to build, since Brickell is already approved at 1049ft, a paltry 20 more feet is nothing. And these people are from China, just like Swire (the builders of BBC), and remember, Swire broke ground on BBC without basically doiing any presalling on the towers you now see standing in Brickell. These people have money, they don’t come to this country bullshitting around and begging our banks for loans.

Com’on people, keep up, I hate wasting my time to point out this stuff which should be very obvious to everyone who reads this site.

People on this site are used to overpromising and underdelivering. Only actions, not hollow words, are convincing

And all we can do is wait and see.

It would be awesome to see an office building boom. It is kind of sad that all these interesting projects depend on residential demand. We need to attract corporations to open offices and branches in town. To do this, our local government must get their act together and invest in mass transit, solve the traffic nightmare between Brickell and Downtown, and improve and sharpen our public landscapes and parks. But it has to be done in way that is cutting edge so we get all types of good attention.

You seem to think you have all the answers, why don’t you run for Mayor or a seat on the Commission and implement your solutions to attract the corporatons you would like to see in Miami?

This is very good news for our hopes of finally seeing an over 1000 footer in Miami, especially since Swire isn’t planning on breaking ground for their 1000 footer that’s part of BBC until the end of year 2017.

And you’re sure of everything you said, how?

Two questions. 1) Will they use EB-5 financing and 2) Will they be using Chinese labor to build these as with other projects around the world?

Who cares!!! As long as they build it

I WANNA SEE IT!!!

I think the render above is a good enough idea of what they are going for. Two very tall triangular towers seem pretty different unique to what we have down here. I like it.

And those designs were done by Arquitectonica.
