A ceremony was held last week at the One Brickell City Centre supertall site to mark the start of demolition, according to a press release.
Miami Mayor Francis X. Suarez, Henry Bott, the President of Swire Properties and Stephen M. Ross, the Chairman and Founder of Related Companies. were in attendance at the May 4 event.
“As part of the program, one of the buildings currently on the site was partially demolished through a stunning display where multiple floors of glass and concrete were carved out of the structure,” according to developer Swire Properties.
One Brickell City Centre will be “an approximately 1,000-foot super tall tower,” the release said.
It will be the tallest and largest office building in Florida.
“This will be an iconic building that will reshape the Miami skyline, the third-largest skyline in America. It will attract the world’s best talent to Miami. Thank you to Related and Swire, who have doubled down with confidence in the future of our city,” said Miami Mayor Francis X. Suarez.
Records show that a demolition permit is still under review by Miami’s Building Department.
The President of Swire Properties told the SFBJ that groundbreaking is likely to take place in early 2024, as designs continue to be finalized.
