Construction Continues To Progress At 645-Foot Miami River Tower In Brickell

Glass railing installation is now nearly complete at the 54-story Miami River apartment tower under construction in Brickell, according to photos by Phillip Pessar.

The 645-foot tower topped off last summer, becoming the westernmost tower in Miami to surpass the 600 foot mark.

The Miami River tower will have 632 apartments. The first phase under construction also includes retail space, and a riverfront promenade open to the public.

There are multiple other phases planned at the development, which is known as The River District.

Eventually, developer Chetrit Group plans to build 4 million square feet of new development on the property. That includes about 1,600 residences, Class A office space, and 30,000 square feet of retail.

Outlaw storage facilities in residential areas – they are neighborhood killers

We’re going to get a whole lot more if the fantasy of upzoning west of I-95 is allowed.

No, that’s not true at all. They have limited storage facilities to specific areas and specific-sized lots. All the 5000 sqft lots and even up to 20,000 sqft lots don’t qualify. Also storage facilities are a necessity, so while you think they are evil they are also helping a lot of area next to the underline and they serve the community in ways you’re ignoring. You can upzone the area right next to it without allowing “storage facilities” as well. Your imagination is running wild.

A little more glassy would be nice but regardless this tower is a gamechanger for the area – love it

I don’t dislike it at all. However, looks zero like the rendering. That would have looked even better.

At least a decade my man – not until every last lot on the river is fully built out – and some of these lots dont even have proposals yet…..

City should be spending some money to complete missing sections. That or forcing the landowners to contribute money for at least temporary connections. It’s embarrassing that the riverwalk is still so disjointed in such a popular/wealthy neighborhood.

Forcing the land owners to pay for a temp project that is funded by the city and maintained by the city and controlled by the city and and and…Um, sounds totalitarian and a violation of constitutional rights

It’s called taxes buddy

No, your property taxes and your income taxes should be enough buddy – Randomly getting charged for a city project isn’t how taxes work. They approved the budget for the river walk nearly a decade ago. We don’t just go randomly charging adjacent property owners for living next to the river when the city needs more money or has funding issues for a bridge.

Hoping Storage Mart sells with Brickell Connect, making room for an extension of modern urban living linked to the BCC.

Correction, I think Storage Mart is on the same plat for development, and already planned to go.

The focus on the storage facilities is a back door issue to try and submarine upzoning in Little Havana…. It really isn’t an issue, it’s being touted as one to prevent upzoning.

I hope they do some upzoning to the adjacent area thats only T4R. The whole area next to Jose Marti needs an upzoning to allow for some commercial uses. Otherwise the big money developers are the only ones who get to utilize the location, while everyone on the other side of the highway wishes they had an improving neighborhood. GIVE LITTLE HAVANA THE UPZONING IT NEEDS!!!

Still no website or leasing/opening date?

I actually think it turned out quite faithful to the rendering, when you take out of consideration unrealistic shading from an eternally setting sun.

It is, they did their best to make it look like the renderings and did a valiant job of it. I love what they’re doing, and live in the area. But I want them to upzone the area next to Jose Marti more than anything. That area could be an organic spot that grows up instead of a plant operation like Midtown or Wynwood. Then maybe some of the cool stuff can permeate to Little Havana and the Little People.

One of the most beautiful towers in the Miami skyline already. Excited to see it lit up soon!

No glass no class

Don’t over cheapen it. Sometimes it’s hard to tell the difference between low market rate modern rentals and failed tower blocks that were torn down.
