Developer Submits Plans For Three Brickell Towers, Including One On Verge Of Supertall Status

Developer Mast Capital has submitted plans for a three-tower project on the former Capital at Brickell site for review, and announced a construction timeline.

For now, the project is simply being called 1420 S. Miami Avenue. There will be three towers at the development, with the following heights:

  • 80 stories, 939 feet (405 condo units)
  • 59 stories, 691 feet (425 rental apartment units)
  • 50 stories, 604 feet (425 rental apartment units)

There will also be 1,646 parking spaces – exactly the minimum required under the Miami 21 zoning code. In addition, there will be a very small amount of retail (18,969 square feet) on the ground floor.

An organization calling itself the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat defines Supertall buildings as those that reach over 300 meters, or 984 feet.

The developer told Multifamily news today that construction will begin towards year end 2022, with completion in the second quarter of 2025.

Construction financing has already been secured from Michael Dell’s MSD and CanAm on the 80-story condo tower, and from Rockpoint on the multifamily component.

Miami’s Urban Development Review Board is scheduled to review the proposal at a meeting on February 16.

Arquitectonica is the architect.

Im obsessed. This is arguable my favorite form of architecture. Simple, modern, subtle curves. I do wish there was more retail through.

Agreed. I wonder why the retail is so minor with 3 buildings.

Why should there be more retail in these buildings? Building more retail would put that much more smoke on BCC which is just a convenient Metromover ride away for a lot of folks who live in Brickell.

Huge miss not to have more retail, this could have been a killer spot to do 2/3rd level big box stores like Trader Joes, Target etc..

Look, take some of your money and risk building a Trader Joe’s or Target in an area that already has two Publix’s nearby plus a fairly new Mall.

That’s a weird way to think about it. I hardly consider building a Trader Joe’s in one of the most densely populated, high income areas in the country a risk.

Either via car or MetroRail you have a Trader Joes on Ponce across the street from Merrick Park just north of Coconut Grove.

where is the retail space on this development? The lot is huge and could be a missed opportunity to expand available retail since Brickell is seeing lots of people moving into the area. Could spur even more development in the area.

Gee, with BCC and MWC just a Metromover ride away, people like you still can’t help but feel sorry for the folks who’ll be living in these buildings because you think they won’t have enough perceived convenience.

The podium has a more interesting design than the tower. I guess that’s a slightly refreshing change of pace.

The “Brand” elevation looks alright, but it’s the same old Arquitectonica crap with an ugly mural justifying an excuse for a blank wall, and something that looks like a 1970s Polaroid camera.

Not a true statement. It’s across the street from the “Financial District” station! Zero parking requirements for residential use.

I don’t like comparing Miami to NYC or Brickell to Manhattan. When you say “Manhattan south”, you’re actually underestimating Miami or Brickell.

That minimum parking is telling. Developers know the facts, cars don’t belong downtown.

Should completely remove all minimums!

I agree that cars don’t belong downtown. The notion that we need more parking spots and more cars downtown is so embarrassingly outdated and out of touch.
