Demolition About To Begin At Former Perricone’s In Brickell After Permit Issued

The former Perricone’s Brickell building is about to be demolished after a permit was issued yesterday.

Miami’s Building Department approved the demolition permit on March 12, and the permit is now active, city records show.

The permit is for total demolition of the 9,000 square foot building now on site, which housed Perricone’s until last month.

CitizenM Hotels is demolishing the building to make way for a new hotel tower. The company first applied for the demolition permit on November 30, and was forced to resubmit the plans four times until approval was granted.

Several other permits were applied for by CitizenM, and remain pending but are not approved. They include a tree relocation permit, and a construction permit to begin work on the new hotel.

A 21-story hotel with 252 rooms and 4,174 square feet of commercial space is planned by CitizenM, designed by architect Gensler.
