Foundation Work Continues At CitizenM Hotel Site In Brickell, Formerly Perricone’s (Where Trees Have Been Cut Down)

Contractors continue working on the foundation for a 21-story CitizenM Hotel in Brickell.

The tower is being built in an area that has become one of the most pedestrian friendly areas in Miami, South Miami Avenue.

To make way for the new tower, the tree-covered Italian restaurant Perricone’s was demolished earlier this year.  Multiple trees were either cut down or relocated, according to Miami New Times.

CitizenM is building a budget-minded hotel with micro-sized rooms starting at at just 157 square feet.

The 277-foot tower will include 252 lodging units and 4,174 square feet of commercial space at the ground level.

There will be no parking built in the new tower.

Gensler is the architect.
