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.

I hope this FUGLY thing doesn’t get built. I rather have an empty lot until something creative comes up. this hotel looks like it belongs in 1970.

The designer should go back to school.

Or go to Sao Paulo, where all buildings are the same and architects go to be lazy.

Now I’m going to take my time and explain this. I’m from Miami but don’t live there anymore and haven’t for some time, but I do visit home every year and sometimes twice a year. When I took a trip to Miami at least three to four months after hurricane Irma hit, I was astonished at the amount of blown down trees I saw and I’m just talking about in a five mile area of north Miami. Are you the one that wrote “One of two stories on this site today that refer to “demolishing” trees..:Miami’s war on trees continues in full force,” because a developer of a property may displace a few trees. But a hurricane will destroy THOUSANDS of them in a few hours. So whining about what some developers are doing to some trees on their plot of land is asinine when you live in a hurricane prone city like Miami. At the house I grew up in, in Miami, we used to have two big pretty avocado trees and one huge mango tree in our yard and guess what?.. their not there anymore because a hurricane destroyed all three of them and when the mango tree was blown down, it destroyed the roof on the garage.

So please, wake up and realize where you live.

Mary Brickell village is ugly as hell. It closes everything off from the outside.

This Citizen M hotel will be great for the area.
We need more density and human activity. A hotel is a great contributor for that. Several restaurants have closed or about to close.
