Miami Dade’s Water and Sewer Department finalized a deal last week to supply water and sewer utilities to the One Southside Park project in Brickell.
The developer also obtained final approval for the project from Miami Dade planners in late December, county records show. It went through county planners for review under their Rapid Transit Zoning scheme, rather then through the City of Miami Planning Department.
Construction is already underway, with groundbreaking in April 2021.
According to the newly completed utilities deal, One Southside Park will include:
165,000 square feet of office
200 hotel rooms
86,151 square feet of spa
23,312 square feet of full service restaurant
1,417 square feet of fast food restaurant
5,120 square feet of banquet hall
13,673 square feet of fitness center
32,000 square feet of fire station
The developer will pay a connection charge estimated to be $1,452,647.82. There will also be a special Brickell Basin II connection charge charge $810,490.20, bringing the total to nearly $2.3 million.
The 62-story project is planned to rise 754 feet above ground, or 766 feet above sea level.
Barry Sternlicht’s Treehouse Hotels will operate the hotel portion of the development.
JDS is the developer, with SHoP Architects and James Corner Field Operations overseeing architecture and landscaping.
