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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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 now have a president who’ll do something about it. Gringos can criticize any city in the USA and don’t have to answer to any hispanic while doing it. Despite what you may think, this is still a “Gringo” or, white peoples country.

“Why are you here then???

No, why are you here and why do you take “Gringo” dollars and send them back to your family members in the country you ran from?

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.

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

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…
