Dade Board Schedules Meeting On Brightline’s MiamiCentral Supertowers

A meeting of the Miami-Dade Developmental Impact Committee has been scheduled to decide whether Brightline’s proposed Supertowers at MiamiCentral will be allowed to move forward.

According to a mailed notice, Miami Supertower A, LLC and Miami Supertower B, LLC are requesting a special exception for a general development plan. It isn’t clear what exactly the exception is.

The meeting is scheduled for December 20.

A separate memo issued by the Miami-Dade Aviation Department states that the site allows a height in the 800 to 900 foot range.

The submitted plans listed a height of 83-stories, or 850 feet for the two towers, which appears to be in line with what is allowed.

The new towers are proposed to have a total of 2,007 residential units, 49,634 square feet of retail, and 2,136 parking spaces.

Construction is already underway to enlarge one of the supertower sites by redirecting a city street.

The impact this will have on the skyline can not be understated. Will totally transform the way the city looks from afar! Looking forward to it.

It will positively impact the skyline if they actually come up with an impactful design, a true super tall, etc

Glad it interacts with the ground level well with lots of potential retail and restaurant space

LOL, it still has parking garages with hideous lipstick-on-a-pig cladding and the towers are, while I assume you like it, Melo on steroids. Certainly not worth refracting a street alignment.

Those who asked for growth in Downtown, here’s the answer: Two towers, 83 floors each, more than 2,000 apartments and parking spaces, and 50,000 square feet of retail area. this complex alone is larger than many small towns.

I must say that I’m really jealous of how the people in these planned apartment buildings and really those living downtown, will have the convenience of jumping on a Brightline train to visit family in Fort Lauderdale, Palm Beach, or Orlando with the option of taking in a weekend at Disney World, and one day taking the same train to Tampa to visit family. I’m in my 60’s now… the future is bright and looking brighter for you twenty somethings who live in Miami and really all of South Florida. Take advantage of it and enjoy everything while you’re young. Remember, they’re redesigning and building better for the future.

They’re already half way there with the twin tower obsession. I mean we have ParkLine, E11even, Vizcayne, Downtown 5th, and now these things… can Miami developers please come up with something else?

Some curves would be better than the atrocities proposed.

Why wouldn’t they be built?
They should definitely start the process already

What about offices? All I hear is residential being built with very little to no office space. This is not building for the future this is just building to maximize profits from current demands that will eventually fade.

The exception is to be afraid like you of doing anything and just leave the entire place ho-hum.

The previous plans for an actual “supertower,” almost a crown jewel for MiamiCentral with promising massing, and without screwing up the street, were not ho-hum.

Yeah, they’re not “ho-hum,” they’re just previous.
