Demolition Permit Filed For In Brickell To Make Way For New Virgin Hotel & Co-Living Tower

In Brickell, demolition could soon begin at the site where a 40-story Virgin Hotel and co-living residences is planned.

Records show that a permit for total demolition of a building on the site was filed on April 22, and was nearing approval as of last month.

Only two departments are still asking for additional information before they grant approval for the demolition – Historic Preservation, and Environmental Resources. Both requested further documentation on October 16.

Virgin’s project in Brickell will includes 250 hotel rooms and 150 co-living apartment units. Residents will have access to shared kitchens and living space, and will also be allowed to use hotel amenities.

The project will also include a 3-story rooftop lounge and pool that will be open to the public. The terraced lounge will be designed to feel like a conservatory and will be the “crown jewel” of the building, Virgin’s CEO says.

Also planned: Funny Library Coffee Shop, a beer garden live music venue, spa, a Commons Club restaurant, bar and social club, and 15,000 square-feet of meeting and event space.

A construction permit to begin work does not yet appear to be pending with Miami’s Building Department.

BLUR Workshop of Atlanta is the architect.

Love the building. I think it will be a great addition. Too bad the demo is taking place soon but the empty lot will sit there for years…..

The house I live in only has views of a coupla houses across the street, a house to the left and right, and an apartment building on the other side of my backyard fence.

and everyone in Millicento now has a place to put their guests accross the street, a new rooftop bar accross the street, dining options, and the property value will increase by 10%. (<<<just an estimate…someone told me that it is better to have a luxury hotel next door than to have a liquor store)

Co living units right after COVID 19. Not a great idea. Stick to Hotel only.
