Demolition Begins At 1010 Brickell Site, Construction Soon

Demolition is now underway at the site of 1010 Brickell to make way for the 47-story residential tower.

A parking garage at the site is being razed (see photos below via Golden Dusk Photography).

The new tower will include 352 units, adding to the thousands already under construction in Brickell.

Yet another building near a metromover station, the county should make the developers upgrade the station.

How does the county “make the developers upgrade” metromover stations in Miami? What the county should do is charge for rides on the metromover and use the proceeds to upgrade the stations.

The metromover generates revenue for the metrorail. At this time charging people to ride the metromover would cost the county more to collect the profits then actual revenue paid by the passengers. Once Brickell City Center is completed, plus more condos are complete and Miami world center is completed. Then charging people to use the metromover would be profitable. Furthermore the county could force them to upgrade the station due to that awesome law of EMINENT DOMAIN.

Do you actually believe most of the BS you spout global reach?

Well someone can’t handle the truth. I’ve seen you commented on many post before , always with your needless and gloomy comments. So I will advise you to actually go to the downtown area and additionally do research.

Um yeah, and you must’ve researched the furthest reaches of the interior of your “gluteus maximus” for that truth.

Funny how you didn’t reply to anything else I wrote. Additionally if you were part of the transit community you would know my statement is correct. So go troll somewhere else, because you can’t handle the truth kid.

“if you were part of the transit community you would know my statement is correct.”

Oh shit!…excuse me, I forgot that somebody that told a person that knew the brother of a guy who had an uncle who was married to a female employee of a guy who’s aquainted with a person who knows my nephew who told me me that a person who’s part of the “transit community” told him that that is all you have to be to have full and complete knowledge of the Office of the MDTA.”

I think you’ve been breathing in too much bus fumes for far too long. You need to stop reaching behind you in that globe for the BS you’re coming up with.

Really???
Really???

Global Reach, you seem to know nothing about anything. Each development is charged an impact fee which is supposed to be used for among many things public infrastructure.

The system is set up that way for a reason. We don’t want a crooked under the table system where every developer has to make a deal for random things and yet new developments put an impact on public roads, public services, schools, need for more parks, etc. So they simply charge them a fee based on the type and size of the project and then the city uses that money to make the required investments.

So instead of talking about what the developers should be doing the real question should be where are all of the impact fees from ALL of the buildings going up right now going.

It’s been mentioned by many that the cost of upkeep and maintenance of the fare box system at the metromover stations was not worth it and ridership actually goes down when you start to charge. Perhaps if the mover offered a ride to Midtown you can actually get some distance out of that system and make the slow ride worthwhile.

DUH
As you i ncrease the cost of free beer, people drink less too.
when did they stop teaching basic economics in high school.
Michael Lewis writes a very nice editorial in this week’s Miami today News. Not worth charging fare on MM at 50 cents, worth it $1.
And what is the “transit community”??
Nerds sure are getting specialized.

We lose money on every single MertoMover rider, but we can make up the shortfall if we get more riders. They make it up in volume.

I am conflicted about this subject. I ride the metro mover on a consistent basis and have been doing so for years. I like the fact that it is free and I understand it became this way because it was costing more to operate the fair box, however, ever since this happened the amount of homeless people riding it, especially in the evening, has increased quite a bit. Once Brickell City Center and Miami World Center are open, it may make sense to charge a nominal fee. I for one would be fine with paying a dollar for each time I ride it.
