Related Applies For Construction Permit To Begin Building The First Tower At One Brickell

Developer Related Group has filed for a construction permit to begin work on One Brickell.

The project name is listed as One Brickell in the permit, but it has also been called 444 Brickell in the past.

A total of three towers are planned for the property, but only one building has now entered the permitting process – Tower II.

The tower will rise 47 stories, or 476 feet, the permit states. That is shorter than the 550-foot height submitted to the FAA.

A total of 506 residential units will be included in the building.

Hard construction costs are estimated at $86 million.

John Moriarty & Associates is listed as the contractor.

A total of 416 plan sheets were submitted on December 22, and were in review as of last week.

Related has said to expect work to begin in the first quarter. A demolition permit for the property has already been approved.

We’ve reached out to representatives of Related Group for updated renderings of the project.

Why are they being so conservative by reducing tower height from 550 FT to 476 FT in such a prime location?

Because it’s their money…

It would be a good site for an iconic skyscraper.

I think this building is short for this area of Brickell should be 700+

IMHO, supertalls would ideally be sprinkled through the city so they can stand out. If you look at the row of supertalls that has been built on 57th St. in NYC, they are too close together. Defeats the purpose of schlepping all the way up to the 80th floor if you are then looking at the side of another building. Also, when it gets to a certain size, a design blunder becomes a long-term blight.

Five years later and firing Pelli, and Related is still peddling these mediocre blobs on one of the most valuable pieces of land in the city.

Wouldn’t expect anything less from related group. They continue to fill the skyline with overpriced mediocre buildings with design flaws.

Designs only an architect could love. As assault on the senses. Reminds me of Tom Wolfe’s excellent essay “From Bauhaus to Our House.”

So, do you live there or do you spend hours everyday there checking out the people who live in Brickell habits and that’s how you know they won’t “take the metromover either?”

I literally live there, every entrance to every building has people who are waiting on ubers if they don’t have cars and when ever mentioning the metromover or trolley they look at you like a peasant.

Well they can’t be waiting for Uber to take them somewhere in Brickell? Now, I don’t blame them for looking at you like a “peasant” if you suggest they jump on a trolley.

They will learn to walk when in near future they will be stuck in traffic and will need an hour for half mile distance.

The more hellish it is for car owners, the more people will decide to ditch their cars. Parking moratoriums could help in this regard since no one likes searching for street parking, especially when it’s rainy. But there needs to be more to do in Brickell, more cover from the rain, and a higher density of street level retail. Right now everything is just a little too far apart for walking, fine for biking as long as your bike doesn’t get stolen.

…and yet vehicle ownership worldwide is skyrocketing, esp. in densely packed countries like China and India with urban areas that make Brickell look like a cornfield.

Some of these people don’t understand.. they just want the ability to drive around in Brickell like their 85yr old grandmother does in the country on a Sunday.

This project is one of the worst I have seen for such a upscale property, it just looks like a glorified mirror (just imagine the sunshine reflection on the streets around it, it will be an inferno). No characteristic, just bland, a shame for a riverside project……

Fantastic. Go up up not out. Leave as much Florida nature intact and the way to do that is limiting sprawl …… nature will make a fortune for the state. It has and will continue to…. good job Miami!

No more views for Brickell on the River. This area will look even better in 2-3 years. Keep building!
