Full Plans For Brickell City Centre Expansion, Adding Two More Blocks

Brickell City Centre has submitted an expansion to build on two additional city blocks.

The proposal would amend the Special Area Plan regulating the development, and increase the SAP area from 11.4 acres to 13.9 acres.

In total, four more towers are now planned at Brickell City Centre, including One Brickell City Centre, North Block, the Tobacco Road site, and Associated Photo property.

The plans have just been recently submitted to the city, have not yet been reviewed, and are subject to change. As of now, the two new towers include:

650 SMA (Tobacco Road site):

  • 54 story tower, with 10-story podium
  • 588 residential units (of which 42 will be under 750 square feet)
  • 89,130 square feet of retail/commercial
  • 839 parking spaces
  • 1.66 acre project site

Associated Photo:

  • 62 story tower, with 12-story podium
  • 384 residential units (of which 144 will be under 750 square feet)
  • 3,200 square feet of commercial/retail
  • 363 parking spaces
  • .73 acre project site

Parking will be in garages above ground. Most of the existing parking at Brickell City Centre is below ground, and One Brickell City Centre and the North Block are planned to have below grade parking.

Arquitectonica is the project architect.

Oh boy, I just cringe when TNM list how many parking spaces these projects will have because the parking bashers go nuts!

Another 1000+ parking spaces in traffic choked Brickell. When will the city wise up and start to find a solution? This is a step backwards.

If they’re going to build residential and retail like this proposed project, why do you think far less parking is needed?

Anonymous

What exactly would be the solution? Comments like yours are both comical and irritating. Let me guess. You think that just because there is a Metro and Metromover station within walking distance of these projects there should be no parking. Is that because you are assuming that everyone who will live in these buildings will also work by the Metro line that only goes from the Airport to Dadeland. Most of us have no choice but to drive to work. Cities like NYC and DC have incredible public transportation and in a perfect world everyone would take it and no one would drive, but guess what, those cities have horrible traffic. So again I ask, what is the solution??

The problem with these garages is that it creates induced demand for cars leading to more traffic. The city should be charging impact fees for these garages and apply them to mass transit infrastructure. Unfortunately, they won’t.

I see, you have answers for everything. So everybody, we now know that making bullets “creates induced demand” for guns! Or is it targets?.. I’m lost.

Which comment, the one that said “The problem with these garages is that it creates induced demand for cars, or the comment below it?

Anonymous

Maybe but let’s not bring guns into this debate. Induced demand is real.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Induced_demand

The same concept can be applied in reverse. If you make cuts to public transit there will be less supply and thus less people will use it and drive their own car creating more gridlock.

Developers should be able to build parking if they want. After all it’s their land. However, the rest of us have to deal with all the traffic those extra cars in those garages will bring. Which is why the city needs to create better incentives for developers to build with less parking.

Where are the tunnel plans for brickell?the train to south beach.
instead of blaming devel0pers we should ask for this..
they did it for the port why not Downtown and brickell area.

Charge them? Why not charge those folks who have single family homes on half and acre and have 4 cars. How about charging them? At a minimum, the people living downtown in these towers are doing their part. Dense vertical living.

You can’t compare NY to Miami, Miami residents love their cars. Mass Transit in Miami Dade County has always been an after thought and too controversial to be involved with. This is why lifetime’terms must end and allow for frequent turnover,. As other members of the community can serve and bring fresh ideas

I just hope that Swire reads these comments. If you do please buy the huge empty lot by Infinity, SLS, and Barseco and build, build, build! It is in a perfect location and right next to the Metromover. That hole in the ground has been empty for ever and I know you could make it beautiful. Thank you in advance.

Yes… and I’ve thought that that site would be perfect for a tallest building in Miami.

No it is not, it is currently owned by a Chinese conglomerate looking to flip and make money.

What’s the address?

Speaking of parking about 2 years ago I went to get my pictures framed at that place next to BCC I guess the name is Associated Photo and the owner told me that debris was falling on his roof from the parking garage they were building. He was very upset and swore up and down he would never sell his property to Swire no matter what. By the looks of this article it looks like he had a price after all. I find it funny how people always say their properties are priceless and they will never sell. Please! Everyone has a price.

not the same lot.
you are talking about the BLACK BIRD land …
Owner is standing on his word..he will not sell to swire(That’s why his land will never go up in price.)

Any news on One Brickell Center tower?

Anonymous

I don’t understand how this much housing capacity is just being dumped, where’s the office space

John

I agree, we need more jobs in the area.

Anonymous

If it wasn’t for mass transit servicing this area none of these growth would be happening thus the Metro expansion to other areas like FIU and even to the new America Mall is needed

HyperJunk

I’m curious as to why they spell ‘Brickell Center’ the British way, Centre?

To sound more “sophisticated”.

The complaint about parking — and the cars it absolutely indisputably attracts — isn’t that the developer “decided” to build it. We’re lamenting the necessity to build it at all. Individualist fantasies aside, it truly is a systemic issue requiring a massive policy pivot and investment on the part of GOVERNMENT.

But we live in the US so this will never happen because it’s “socialism,” so all we get is cheap trash clogged with polluting speeding tanks. But for sure regulate the hell out of those annoying scooters!! Carry on.

Oh and to clarify, spending half a billion dollars reconfiguring an existing highway interchange is just the market at work guys. What can you do!

Not surprised to see square buildings with juxtaposed balconies which is so last decade and over-done.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Lol. Some people will never be happy…

when you enter brickell from the north itsreally cool seeing the flatsides of bcc I wish they kept that same or similar feeling atthe roundabout with these new towers

Amazing!

Please build that !

Ugh, why do they go for the alternating position of the pillars on the base? It looks so disorienting and cheap! It already would have been a nice building anyway…

If you hear that “Arquitectonica is the project architect” you can just close your eyes and imagine how the design of the building will look and basically be right.

Because the final product will lock completely different than what we in the renderings?

the tower designs are way too different from what is currently there I wish they would keep some type of uniformity
