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.
