Foundation Permit Approved This Morning At One Brickell

A foundation permit was approved today for the One Brickell site.

It is the second building permit approved for the site this month. A master building permit for a 506-unit tower was approved November 10.

The permit approved November 21 allows for excavation, piles, and site and soil improvement.

The foundation permit was applied for in August.

The tower will have 506 multi-family rental units, according to the master permit filing.

John Moriarty is listed as the contractor on both permits.

Both permits are for work at 77 Southeast 5th Street.

In addition, another construction permit is in the review process for the Baccarat Condo Tower at 99 Southeast 5th Street, with 352 condo units.

Can someone explain the order of construction for the three towers ?

Amazing! Now we just need more luxury low/mid-rise boutique residential buildings in the walkable area of South/West Brickell. This will provide much needed housing for incoming business professionals to live. The “luxury” high rises in central and east Brickell are old or too tall and crowded to provide a high-end residential experience.

bullcrap—east Brickell is where the bay is at, and it will always be the highest end of Brickell. Stop playing SimCity.

It’s all old construction East with dated structure and design. People just get those for vacation rentals and investments. Plus it floods big time there. West Brickell is new brickell. Its young, vibrant and less transient. It’s quiet and quant residential zone with new luxury developments.

Plus it doesn’t flood at all because it’s elevated! I’m working/playing in the real world not a sim. How about you?

One is not more high end than the other. One is older and near the water, popular with vacationers (East), and the other is newer and near Grove and Gables and convenient transportation points, home to many locals (West).

Waterfront is more valuable and therefore more hi-end than non-waterfront. Period. Point blank. End of story. Location, Location, Location—Real Estate’s golden rule.

Show me any coastal neighborhood in Florida where the inland homes are more valuable and higher end than the waterfront ones. You can’t.

West Brickell is coastal. It’s in the river silly. It’s also a part of Brickell which is already so small and defined by concrete defined border. So it has to fill up eventually and when it does it’ll all be the same coastal community.

The only difference is that West Brickell wi be all new construction and not the dated buildings with old code construction and lending issues.

If people wanted to spend millions to be on the bay they could just buy a waterfront mansion in a suburb. Most people come to Brickell for work and entertainment, don’t kid yourself.

There’s two types of markets here, those just wanting to be on the water, probably retired, and those looking for the most convenient best city lifestyle. They can either here and both markets are going simultaneously with a luxury focus.

Depends if you like seeing the city lit up at night or if you like looking out at complete darkness.

Bay views are great for a week, but the novelty wears off, I’ve had them. Just saying it’s not the end all and be all, as though development should not expand anywhere but the coastline.

Look at midtown and everything booming there. People want a walkable city lifestyle and they can get it here at any point of Brickell.

It also depends what’s on the land, is it something very old that needs to be torn down? Is it flood prone? Is it in an area that’s inconvenient for transportation?

People who move to Brickell are looking for convenience. West Brickell offers that and a less intoxicated crowd than central Brickell.

Not to say the properties along the water will become less valuable, but I think eventually all of brickell will be comparable in value.

^With square footage being equal, location and views trump all else. Are you marketing west Brickell properties by any chance?

It’ll take a few years to catch up, but with all the development along the river, One Southside Park in West Brickell, and the new Citizen development to the east, this entire Brickell neighborhood is going to be the “it location” – just will come down to personal preferences and proximity to work. West Brickell has the location and gorgeous views, it’s just a matter of time before Brickell blends together.

No I’m not marketing any properties anywhere, just giving tips for those who want to make money developing an area ripe with potential West and South Brickell – also just want to see Brickell fill out to a beautiful urban oasis that it aims to be, so residents can walk everywhere and tourism picks up.

West Brickell isn’t some non coastal area, like Loxahatchee, many of the units by the water have blocked views anyway. West Brickell is a few minute walk to the bay or river and all the entertainment restaurants etc. And you get water views from West brickell too. Get over it, Brickell is developing and there’s going to be more high end places to live “point blank.”

You’re comparing an urban core of an international city to a single family neighborhood or resort town.

Look at NYC – What’s more valuable, the lower east side or soho? Alphabet city (avenue c along the water) or Greenwich Village (central)? Murray Hill or Central Park South?

The blocks along the water aren’t always more valuable in cities. In an urban core, the areas closest to metro and conveniences and parks are the most valuable.

Here geographically that is West Brickell. There are a few luxury buildings and more being built. The next round will be even more high end and being retail. It’s exciting to see how Brickell is evolving/developing.

I like the city views at night over the bay views. It is too windy by the water.

Miami is not any “coastal neighborhood in Florida” – Miami is in a league of its own. It’s an international city more akin to Seattle where coastal views are appreciated but there is a luxury dense core in the center.

We can’t just keep building luxury condos along the bay – and assume the city is just going to keep growing vertically north/south. We need to spread the development west to I-95, and eventually further to the airport, and give some girth to this City!

Otherwise it’ll just be a resort town like any other “coastal neighborhood in Florida.”

Um, the “other” Brickell you’re referring to is South Brickell, not West Brickell.

Nope West Brickell is the perfect location. Moving there now!

It takes vision to see what it will be but it’s so much easier to drive to Miami Beach, Grove and Gables. Only one block from Publix, Brickell City Centre, metros, has lots of parks, few blocks to river or may, never floods or has traffic, the people are respectful and nice (unlike the wannabes/tourists I’ve seen in East brickell drunk late night) – it feels like a real neighborhood on the up, and there’s new luxury buildings going up now!

I’m successful professional and see more and more young trendy people moving here every day. You’re always welcome to check it out.

They’re going to add better lighting on the streets, so until then I suggest you see during the day.

Also West Brickell is one of the few areas in Brickell that is elevated and does not flood. Luxury is not being stuck in your condo on a 40th floor building with an elevator that’s out of service, and AIRBNB people yelling down your hallway. Luxury started expanding to West Brickell. I think it will and should continue to the next level.

As good as it gets

It’s apparent that this permit is for the FIRST ….47 story rental tower ….on the south west side of the entire lot. Running along 5th street. The SECOND tower , permit in process & where archeologists are working still, will be the 72 story Baccarat Residences condo. Along the west side of the lot. Now supposedly about 75% SOLD OUT. The THIRD tower , will be where the existing CAPITAL GRILL stands. That will supposedly be a Baccarat hotel , with condo residences above. To be about 80 stories tall. This will run along the east side of the lot…on Brickell ave .
