Construction Permit Approved For Tower 2 At One Brickell

Miami’s Building Department has approved a construction permit for Tower 2 at One Brickell.

Approval of the permit took around 23 months.

The permit was first applied for in early December 2020, with the full plans submitted for review that same month.

The tower will have 506 multi-family rental units, the permit states.

John Moriarty is listed as the contractor.

There is also a separate site work (excavation/piles/site and soil improvement) permit pending for the same address (77 Southeast 5th Street), which appears to be moving closer to approval within the past few weeks.

In addition, another construction permit is pending for the Baccarat Condo Tower at 99 Southeast 5th Street, with 352 condo units.

FYI drove by the site on Sunday and looked like the archeological equipment was being removed and a few tractors were spotted (not there last week), so seems like this one is about to start!

This design is breathtaking. It looks like the pattern of one of my favorite plants, the snake plant, which is common here—except an abstract metallic architectural version of the plant 🤩

Oh, I’m sure Arqueeftectonica were inspired by snake plants when designing this crap, and not “let’s get a drunk guy to draw balconies on three boxes.”

Lol either way, there’s an idea for future architects. Snake plant inspired structural lines. When I saw the Solitair building it reminded me of the pattern of a date palm. Maybe it’s my imagination or the natural patterns in nature inspire architect.

It was originally known as the 3 building ONE BUILDING PROJECT several years ago. But project was cancelled. Related revived it as Baccarat residences + 2 other buildings on the same site . One will be a luxury rental. The other , a Baccarat Hotel & residences.

Too many better developments in the pipeline at the time, which is why Related retreated for a while, only to come back with the exact same recycled crap.

Every time I see this design it just reminds of a crumpled aluminum can.

Can they rebuild these bridges already? That way they don’t go up and down all the time. PBC and Martin County have rebuilt bigger bridges than these ones years ago and the amount of traffic there is a fraction of ours.

They look like little walking bridges in Central Park, not sizable ones they need. Seems like they should be higher, or have tunnels under them and remove them all together.

A tunnels is the way to go. If we want a better riverfront, we wouldn’t be wanting a bigger, more utilitarian bridge.

They need tunnels and that would be in the billions

The bridge is historic, and rebuilding it with higher clearance will require giant flyovers, ruining streetscapes further.

Haha historic? So were many bridges that have been replaced in NY and around the country. It’s not a government building or art piece, it’s something meant to function with a purpose. Put it in a museum or relocate it to a park for walking on if we are concerned about preserving its place in history.

What ruins the streetscapes is the traffic. The real estate on the lower floors are already right on the bridge. There’s plenty of other prime real estate in west and south brickell for streetscapes. I think we’d all like tunnels and elevated walker fixed bridges.

I’m not sure about this TBH. Maybe they build another bridge the same size eventually, haven’t heard/thought of that, or leave room for at least one tunnel as they develop the riverfront incase future generations have resources and will to pick it up.

Technically bridges do qualify as art forms depending on the significance of it. In Chicago, the DuSable bridge is iconic to the city – and yes it’s historic.

That’s a good point! I forgot about that bridge in Chicago and it’s a similar landscape. I’ve walked on it. It didn’t seem to be an issue with traffic. Maybe it goes up and down less frequently? I change my mind. I think these bridges do add historic value and look nicer than potential monolith size bridges.

It cost money to do that. Where’s the money coming from? You people all kick and scream that you don’t want your taxes to be raised well you get what you pay for.

Billions in federal infrastructure bill? Make one bridge a toll bridge which will give people a “fast pass” way to get across, while still giving a standard free option, and use the revenues to start funding the tunnel?

The Brickell Bridge has been replaced within the last 10 years.
The Miami Ave Bridge was replaced about 5 years ago.
SW 2nd Ave Bridge was replaced about 10 years ago.

The archeologists are gone. Construction equipment is on site, and preliminary work has begun.

See, told you guys to be patient! Now at least we know we didn’t cover up anything worth exploring and have insight into the land so we can build smarter for the future.

Don’t mean any harm, gentleman. I’m sure it’s nerve-wracking to await the results, as a finding could delay a build and cost lots of money. Glad it’s time to move forward.

I love the way the condo and rental look exactly alike. So, it just comes down to interiors to distinguish between someone paying or someone renting?

From all of these comments, you can get a feel for who are self-absorbed transplants that have no respect for the history of Miami. You are the epitome of why Miami has gone down in quality of life. Enjoy your Brickell experience while you can. Because once the seas reclaim their territory, the party is over. Flooding streets during high tide will be the least of your worries.

I passed the Baccarat site yesterday. I spoke with a seemingly knowledgeable guy of the archeological team. He said there’s still approx 2 months yet of work to do. Those tractors could be cleaning the portion of the lot where the 47 story rental tower will be built. More along 5th street. There has been no formal announcement that the archeological work has completed by the Related Group.
