Construction Activity At Prime Riverfront Lot Across From Brickell City Centre

One of the most prominent undeveloped sites in Brickell is now seeing construction activity.

451 South Miami Avenue is owned by Miami River Holdings LLC, which lists Nicolas and Isabella Mattos as managers.

The property is across from the Brickell City Centre North Square lot owned by Swire Properties. It is not a part of the recent Brickell City Centre expansion approval though, which included other land owned by the Mattos family.

City records show just two recent construction permit applications for the site. On February 5, a permit was approved to install temporary toilets at a cost of $620. On September 5, 2018, an application to build a storm sewer with french drain was filed with a listed cost of $60,000, but it was never reviewed or approved.

When the property is eventually developed, a riverwalk is required to be built, which could make Brickell City Centre more accessible from the river. For now though, no path exists at this property or at Related Group’s One Brickell property which blocks the riverwalk to the east.

Was there a temporary water park there last year or am I imagining that?

There was one for one weekend. I think it was supposed to last for four weekends in the summer but they never did any advertising and no one showed up.

You didn’t imagine, it was quite the ****show.

Wouldn’t call the installation of a couple crappers “construction activity” but its exciting to think that a connected river walk could soon be realized since it would be amazing to walk away from cars next to the water…

Maybe gearing up for a wharf-like setup?

Yes. Will be named ”Riverside Brickell’s Backyard” they’re running 6 months behind schedule though.

Excellent location for a pedestrian/bike tunnel under the river.

If there’s going to be a tunnel built it wont be for pedestrians…

Theres a free metro mover station right there on both sides

How about a grand plaza and gathering place that connects to the Riverwalk. Convenient Metro Mover a few steps away.

LOL a “pedestrian tunnel,” as in graffiti and mugging magnet and homeless bathroom.

BCC’s third or fourth phase?? If Mattos owns it then it is not out of the realm of possibilities for him to team up again with Swire for another project, keeping fingers crossed. This with the Hyatt across the river would transform the area and take it to the next level!!!

I kind of hope they don’t. I’d prefer they do something different. I like BCC but don’t want it occupying half of Brickell.

Would be very cool if BCC continues the level-3 walk, and air foil sky-thingy. The north end of the structure was left open, implying that would be the next phase.

Can anyone tell me where and how to look up these records for new construction?
