First Glass Installed At Brickell Flatiron As Construction Pace Accelerates

Brickell Flatiron is now rising much faster than before, and contractors recently installed the first glass windows.

The tower recently passed the point where typical floors are being built, allowing for much quicker construction. One floor is now being added every week, with level 25 poured late last month.

Brickell Flatiron is the second tallest tower under construction in Miami, at 65 stories and 734 feet above ground. Most units have already been presold.

When people complain about parking garages, here’s an example. Look at that base and imagine how much it cost to build. That’s your parking garage. In 15-20 years, or whenever, when we have more transit in Miami and/or self driving cars and most people do not own an automobile, that cost will still be present.

What a silly comment. The place will be ready in 3 years and needs parking now. In 20 years, if it’s no longer needed, you build it out into some great amenities. There are so many anti parking people in Miami…in NY Chicago and LA all they do is beg, plead and pay BIG TIME $$ for parking. But since they may not need in 20 years…maybe they shouldn’t worry about it. Sorry for the snarkiness – I’m guessing it was a troll comment anyway.

The same people who complain about parking decks also claim Miami will flood some day. Buildings on pedestals won’t have to worry. Just infill them and add a marina.

Lol, ok! Miami will be carless in 20years but we have zero mass tranit outside an above ground system from decades ago. Even if decisions on transit were made today the completion of any decent mass transit wouldn’t happen in that time for transit to rival NY, London, etc. Get real!

So over these tired conversations about cars and transit, until we go underground (yea, right!) there will never be a true solution. Sorry!

Brickell has the most mass-transit of anywhere in Miami-Dade County.

What is going on with the Raymond Jungles designed park on the south end of the site? That piece was supposed to be given to the City…
