Demolition Update At One Brickell City Centre Near Supertall Site

An office building remains under demolition at the site where the One Brickell City Centre near-supertall is planned, new photos by Phillip Pessar show.

The partially demolished building was covered in graffiti around two weeks ago.

A total demolition permit for the building is active. It had been temporarily suspended following a September incident.

A second demolition permit for another office building is still in process as of this morning, and not yet approved.

The new 59-story tower is planned to have 1,136,718 square feet of habitable office space.

There will also be a new parking garage and Metromover entrance.

Top off of One Brickell City Centre is planned at 977 feet, putting it just below supertall height.

This is taking an eternity, by the time this demolition is complete, the demand for office will diminish

Much like the One Bayfront tear down it appears to have asbestos and must be properly abated….

No we don’t want any graffiti, that’s for Wynwood, keep it to fine, modern, classic, and pop art.

taking a year to demolish a small building and it’ll be close to 10 years before one brickell city center is complete. Only in Miami.

I moved away from MIA about 16 years ago and it looks like things still run on ‘Cuban time’. Hopefully the building goes through a redesign as it looks way too bulky and boxy.

Thank goodness we’re moving toward standard Eastern Time, especially around Brickell. We don’t have time to waste.

This project was supposed to be 1041 ft ground level. Why was the heught reduced?

Why wouldn’t you reach out to the demolition company before you wrote this article to get their input? This story is basically worthless.

I’m sure having people climb into a half demolished building poses no liability for the City or the property owner. Lol.

Not sure why the City would be liable, it’s private property.

Would be a shame if one of these “artists” slipped and fell while carrying out their craft.

This skyscraper is going to stick out like a sore thumb in Brickell where it should ideally be in the Downtown CBD next to Southeast Financial.

Ehhh so the World Trade Center sticks out of the Financial District in Manhattan? Your comment is not grounded in reality.

Yes because the World Trade Center is supposed to stick out with it being an iconic skyscraper to New York City. Not only that, the financial district in Manhattan is almost entirely glass office buildings with some older gotham architecture buildings. Comparing Miami’s tropical buildings to Gotham is almost pointless because in Brickell most of the high rises are white stucco boxes while the CBD almost (or at one time it did) resembles a financial district with the original office skyscrapers.

CBD is more akin to the area where SoHo/Chinatown/Tribeca sit in Manhattan. There’s beautiful and thriving businesses there but the architectural gems belong in the Financial District.

Some of these Metromover station rebulids are fake and don’t really integrate into the new buildings. BCC/8th Street does, but not the rebuilt Freedom Tower and Park West stations in front of Worldcenter.
Freedom Tower station just casually sits in front of the new Holiday Inn-sized CitizenM midrise.

All in all is not that different from the Holiday inn two blocks away that everyone complains about.

Also, not rebuilt for longer platforms for longer trains with longer cars, a must if any Metromover expansion is ever considered.
