CitizenM Gets Permit To Begin Foundation Work At Former Perricone’s Site In Brickell

Contractor Suffolk Construction has been issued a permit to begin work on the foundation of the CitizenM hotel planned for Brickell, city records show.

The permit was issued June 18. A tree permit was issued earlier in the month but then denied following a revision.

CitizenM Brickell will include a 21-story, 277-foot tower with 252 lodging units and 4,174 square feet of commercial space at the ground level. Gensler is the architect.

Hotel rooms will be micro-sized, starting at just 157 square feet.

Records show that CitizenM is also requesting expedited review of their construction permit at Miami Worldcenter, where they plan another hotel. A foundation permit is pending as of mid-June. Suffolk is also the contractor there.

Well at least this development won’t block any views at the Flatiron only the parking podium…

Dude, the people who’ll be living in the Flatiron building aren’t that concerned about views.. their paying to be where the action is. That’s why Manhattan is so packed with skyscrapers.

Why does this city insist on putting pictures on some of these buildings instead of just designing them with style? Look at the design of Okan’s new building scheduled to go up in downtown.. sleek, stylish, modern, and very eye appealing.. no need to try and make parts of it look like some kind of Picasso paining.

Wouldn’t use a building that doesn’t exist as an example.

I do…
Just returned from a trip to Tokyo and I stayed in a capsule hotel and I was blown away by the experience. Breakfast was included and delicious. I’d love to see one of those open up here in Miami.

Tokyo has a population of around twelve to fourteen million people. Miami doesn’t need hotel rooms that small.. yet.

Also, Tokyo is about 85-90% its own people who know what a shower is and has an excellent transit system.

Wouldn’t trade the former Pericone site for this bee hive…the trees, the plaza, nice…we need green areas not more concrete.

If you’re craving green space, take a short trip to the Everglades National Park. I’m sure the thousands upon thousands of acres of green space there will satisfy your appetite.

Relax guys, once this project is complete you’ll love the urban feel and livability it will bring to the area.

Did you just fall off a turnip truck or something? That area already has an urban and livability feel to it because it’s Brickell!!!
