Demolition Permit Filed At Perricone’s Marketplace, Along With Construction Permit For CitizenM Hotel

Perricone’s Marketplace in Brickell is one step closer to being demolished after the owner of the property applied for a demolition permit.

CitizenM Miami Brickell Properties, LLC filed for both a demolition permit and construction permit on November 30, city records show.

According to the demolition permit, a 9,000 square foot building will be demolished at a cost of $165,000. Suffolk Construction is listed as the contractor.

The preliminary construction permit lists a construction cost of $45,948,329. A total of 252 hotel rooms will be built over 19 floors, with Suffolk again listed as the contractor.

A tree permit was applied for in September, but still hasn’t been approved.

CitizenM purchased the property last year, but Perricone’s has remained open since then.

RIP Perricone’s ?

Anonymous

This was the first restaurant that I went to when I got to Miami from Washington DC back in the 90’s. A lot of great memories there, it will truly be missed, but that’s life all things must come to an end.

Please don’t build that CRAB.

At least there is no parking.. amirite?

If they have to demolish Perricones, they could at least do it for something cool. Such a shame…

Please save the beautiful trees onsite.

THIS IS THE SADDEST DAY IN BRICKELL HISTORY! This only reiterates the griddiness of our government! That lot on the corner is part of a TRUST which basically the city did whatever they wanted to with it! SHAME ON MIAMI!

A little dramatic no?

I’m in agreement, but wake up man. This is Miami, this kind of stuff happens daily.

Nah, the saddest day was the construction of the Four Ambassadors, which started the high-rise craze. Now don’t get me wrong, I love Brickell even with all its growing pains, but I wish redevelopment focused more on the north side of the river. We have Worldcenter coming, but Moshe Mana has let the heart of downtown rot further.

You really don’t know what you’re saying, do you?

What a constructive reply! What don’t I know what I’m saying? I’m talking what’s today known as infill, which Miami21 should’ve encouraged, but we still get vertical suburbia from waiver after waiver.

The demolition permit for Perricone is as sad as Mana buying another building in downtown Miami…

Actually, it would have been preferable for Mana to buy Perricones because then nothing would get built.

LOL Right on!

I am so sorry for the demise of Perricone’s and rest of Miami. We are the new Manhattan.

Park on east side

There is a park on the east side of the site which Perricone’s used illegally and rent free for a decade. I hope all the trees stay.

That corner is the last corner of Brickell that actually still looks like brickell. Brickell looks like a wanna be Manhattan. conrcrete jungle!

Downtown will soon also look like a mini Manhattan and soon the whole Miami will look like Manhattan or even better. This is great! Plus with all NYers moving to town, it makes a lot of sense.

Hope not! keep the gringos up north.

But I thought diversity was good, as opposed to eighty-something percent Hispanic.

Not when northerners want to come to Miami to change it and try to make it like NY.

Amazing, beg this country to let you in and then tell the “gringos” that they are not welcomed somewhere in their own country.

Manhattan has a land area of 23 sq mi and population of 1.665 million.
City of Miami has 36 sq mi land area and 463 thousand.
We’ve got quite a way to go.

And even at 36sq miles, Miami is still very small in terms of land size compared to almost any other city in the USA.

If you want NY move to NY!!. MIAMI should have it’s own identity!!

Miami does have it’s own identity.. other parts of the country call it the “third world.”

Why are you here then???

I’m here because this is the United States of America.. not Cuba or Venezuela. I’m not hispanic and I was born in this country like all of my family going back generations were. It’s really amazing the profound disrespect that the Latin people in Miami have for who they call “northern gringos” who, unlike them, didn’t run from their country and beg the USA to take them in. It was a “northern gringo” named Flagler who built a railroad to bring people from up north to what was considered back then a mosquito infested worthless swamp called Florida. Now that those same white northerners who built up Florida and allowed hispanics who fled their countries to be here, hispanics in Miami act like this is “THEIR” country and not the United States of America and they can run it the way they see fit and have the audacity to tell white northerners “you’re not welcomed here.” Just like Cubans in Miami had the nerve to tell Attorney General Janet Reno “we don’t have to do what you say, this is Miami and we run it!” You spanish speaking people better wake up, white people are tired of this BS and… Read more »

Miami-Dade is 2/3rds Hispanic, demographic reality, you’re the minority now and you’re all sad over it, time to reap what you sow gringo!

You may be 2/3 now but Trump is going to do something about that.

Miami does have it’s own identity. I just moved back to Miami (my hometown) after eight years in New York. Brickell and Downtown are more urban than the rest of Dade County’s general suburbia, but they DO NOT feel like New York. They feel like the urban parts of Miami. Trust me, on no single street in Brickell could you ever think that you’re walking around Manhattan, unless any time there is a tall building that makes it Manhattan. In that case, Chicago doesn’t have an identity, San Francisco doesn’t have an identity, etc…

Brickell/Downtown are literally the urban core. They are supposed to be concrete jungles. That is the whole point.

Master Angler

Can’t say I’m surprised. Everyone knows Perricone’s has been struggling the last few years–I’m glad their going out with whatever dignity they have left still in tact. All the new Italian eateries (everything la centrale to papa john’s) have been taking their slice of the “pie” so to speak.

Anonymous

The new Italian eateries are even more expensive and of lesser quality. The problem is the tourists/sheeple of Brickell are just too attracted to City Center and the lame market/food hall concepts. They don’t even think of a real restaurant like Perricones

AMEN!!

I had a delicious lunch at La Centrale yesterday for about what I would have paid for lunch at Perricone’s. And since when is Perricone’s cheap? More restaurants opening is exclusively a good thing.

That being said, Perricone included a lease back option when he sold the land, so the plan is for the restaurant to reopen. Not that I have a lot of hope that it’ll be the same…
