Demolition Permit Now Pending At Brickell Property Said To Have Been Purchased By Citadel

A demolition permit has been applied for at a Brickell property reportedly bought by hedge fund giant Citadel.

According to the demolition permit, total demolition of a 6,000 square feet building at 1250 Brickell Bay Drive is planned.

The permit was applied for on September 15, with the demolition plans filed on September 27.

Gerald Beeson is listed as a contact on the permit. According to Citadel’s website, Beeson is the COO.

The 12-unit apartment building was said to have been purchased by Citadel for $20 million, although the transaction hasn’t yet been recorded in county records.

The design is basically done for the new HQ, and Miami you will LOVE it! Naturally some will hate it, but KG doesn’t concern himself with that. Having been here now 3 months from Chicago, the 35 that are here love Miami!

From one Northern transplant to another, can’t wait to see it! Miami is the future of America’s cities and infrastructure. I get the sense that KG not only wants this project to thrive, but also wants the City to thrive along with it.

Um, I wouldn’t say “the future of America’s cities and infrastructure,” but certainly improvements are on their way.

Wonder if it will be a skinny high rise since business is growing—OR a roundabout since road plans needs to be redesigned to scale—OR a public space with a monument, to bring tourism to the neighborhood and improve quality of life for residents.

I’d love to see all of these options factored in, and hopefully one that will enhance the city – excited to see how Citadel transforms Brickell!

Water taxi connecting this area with South Beach and Key Biscayne is a better use of resources.

Yes this would be very much welcomed—with a vip offering with drinks and snacks, and overall customer experience focus (like the phenomenal new Brightline CX.)

why don’t they take a big beautiful dynamite show to those towers in the middle of the photo that look like they belong on the coastline of the redneck riviera while they’re at it

This would be a great location for a metromover station.

There’s already at least 3 in Brickell. It’s not a far walk from an existing station but I’d endorse that if it had some type of monument size sculpture and integrated public space and improved traffic, like a roundabout.

Someplace to have lunch or meet for a blind date overlooking the water.

Just under a 5-minute walk from Financial District Metromover Station, or 7-minutes from 10th Street Promenade to this property. No chance of this happening. Not feasible to build a metromover station every block.
If this building was located farther down Brickell Ave. Southwards, there would be total merit as there is no nearby metro mover connection. Northern/Eastern Brickell already has almost perfect connections, cant get much better.
An extension Northward from 15th street to Edgewater and Wynwood needs to be studied, planned, and build long before this could even be considered.

An existing underutilized Metromover is only 3 blocks away. People walk longer in tunnels in Manhattan. Why not just add some kind of canopy-style climate-controlled retail corridor above ground level for people to walk. It can have a moving walkway down the center. It can lead to a square with a foundation/monument in the center of this lot for people to gather at.

With a fountain/monument* – I think something neoclassical and modern would look great.

Elevated canopy style walkways of Brickell City Centre should be integrated throughout Brickell and including here. People love the cool indoor/outdoor pedestrian ways above the street.

Cool, let’s have the flyovers run right along your balcony, and if it breaks down, oh well.

Well you won’t be called if the Metromover does, because you certainly wouldn’t know how fix it.
