Engineer Places Sign At The Towers By Foster and Partners Property

Structural engineer DeSimone placed a sign at Brickell’s The Towers by Foster and Partners property last week.

Twin towers rising 1,049 feet are planned for the site – the maximum permitted by the FAA. They are to become the tallest buildings on the east coast south of Manhattan, according to Foster’s website.

Last week, developers Tibor Hollo and Frank McCourt signed a mortgage modification agreement secured by the project site at 120 Brickell Bay Drive, extending a $45 million loan. Corigin Real Estate Group of New York is also said to be a partner in the project.

No construction permits are pending for the property.

A public plaza with open bay views is planned at ground level, along with retail and restaurant space. Parking will be buried underground or placed above the plaza, accessible by elevator.

Too bad it’s extremely mediocre and frankly ugly for Forster.

I hope it gets built and the plaza will give Brickell more of a mature feel.

The waterfront along there is one of the most underutilized parts in all of Miami.

World class team, creating world class architecture. The multiple sky decks will mirror the sky decks of the planned office tower on the World center site.

The increased connections to the bay are also crucial. Still not a fan of putting parking underground, but with the right sea wall and planning it should be okay.

Why doesn’t the rendering have Panorama tower to compare height too? It’s right beside it, shouldn’t that tower be included so we get a feel of what the skyline will look like post-build?

Worst part of the Brickell area is this Villa Magna site…. the bayfront area is interrupted by Miami’s most expensive (?) parking lot- which I assume…. is for the neighboring Brickell House valet (?). Is the mechanical valet parking lot working at BH? Seems to be working at Echo.
Neighbors should be happy to get a new bayfront dog park/ jogging area, if permitted.

The parking lot was owned by Tibor Hollo who was using the parking lot to park the 1101 Brickell/Panorama Tower cars. Now that his PanoTowers is built, it’s time to build on 1201 Brickell Bay Drive.

So what? We will use boats instead of cars, and the Metromover will probably be expanded.

What dont you like about walking the baywalk from 12th street to 15th Street and the 9 acre Simpson Park? It’s really green with lots of trees to hug.
