Gazit’s Planned Brickell Tower Gets Height Increase To 699 Feet, New Rendering

Israeli developer Gazit has submitted a new rendering and more detailed plans of a 59-story tower they are planning across from Brickell City Centre, along with a taller height.

The newest set of plans and renderings was submitted to Miami-Dade County planners on March 30.

According to the latest plans, Gazit’s new tower at 90 Southwest 8th Street will now rise 699 feet.

90 Southwest 8th Street is now proposed to include:

  • 504 apartments
  • 17,585 square feet of retail on the ground and 2nd floor
  • 349 parking spaces

Parking will be on the 3rd to 15th floors, with an additional intermediate parking level between the ground and second floors.

Amenities and leasing areas are planned on the 58th and 59th floors.

Atlantic Pacific Communities is also shown in the plan set as a co-developer.

Corwil is the architect.

Demolition is now underway at the site.

 

The renderings below are labeled as being initial, for illustrative purposes only, and subject to change during the approval process:

They concealed the garage pretty well but god bless the people with parking on the 15th floor lol

I can’t imagine what it would be if we built the tower with no parking reductions. It would be half car storage half units.

“Hello Mr “renter”…. your dedicated parking space is on the 15th Floor”. So funny guys. Really!?

Wait Wait. The major part of this new rendered tower is to be a parking garage.
Did the Developer not mention this to the dude who did this rendering?

There is also a certain excitement that a cluster of skyscrapers bring. It creates a buzzTourists wip out there cameras and pedestians have hop to their step. To the comments that someone has to park on level 15…. I think they are missing the point. Brickell is suddenly growing into a major cool place. Cool equals money and interest

Love it. Aesthetically very nice. I like the lighting strip. Also, the tall structure will define an other limit of a new Brickell skyscraper corridor. 8th Street. I think its very exciting Nice work Guys

Since Miami isn’t a bicycle or pedestrian friendly city, why don’t we do something that would ensure it becomes friendly to cycling and walking by perhaps limiting or taxing developers when they build parking?

cant do that because city code says they have to put in so many parking spots

Having moved here from Manhattan 18 months ago, I think Brickell and Downtown are actually quite walkable. The biggest issue (common to most cities now) is that bikes and scooters aren’t really ideal vehicles for either the streets or sidewalks. Drivers here have one hand and one eye engaged in navigation and the other hand and eye involved with their phones. No one is safe on the streets as a result. Scooters and bikes go 10-15 mph though, which is 3-4x the speed that walkers move. Not sure what the solution is. Bike lanes in urban areas haven’t been a great success. They increase car traffic because they usually borrow from existing lanes, yet their usage isn’t very robust. In the north, they are vacant during cold months and during rain. Here, the hot months aren’t ideal for commutes involving exercise. I say more metromover and shade trees. Support the pedestrians and crack down on distracted drivers.

Scooters are perfect for the summer months. I live and work in Brickell and bought an electric scooter exactly for the purpose of commuting during the summer. It could be 90 degrees that it’s still comfortable on a scooter.

Sure… more Metromover to hover over streets making them dead zones and shade trees pointless. I question whether you actually come from NYC or are just LARPing as one.

Well, you don’t have to take the Metromover, keep walking and more power to you.

I agree with the concept of shade trees. If you have ever visited tropical Singapore, you would be amazed how much comfort the canopy of shade trees provide.

With an excellent location, close to everything, including the metro, this is the typical building that could have fewer spaces than the number of units, as proposed. It would be a lot if 10% of unit owners use the garage.

Okay submit the construction permit already, and what happened to that hotel that was suppose to go up across from Brickell metrorail station. That lot is still empty and chicken less.

They had to increase the amount of spaces cause people complain too much. Look what you guys have done. Now we have 15 levels of parking. I do love how well it’s hidden.

Also, it’s probably gonna be robotized. So you’re not actually driving through 15 floors. You would throw up halfway.

Yeah….overall Rendering is still very wrong. SLS LUX one block east , at 648 feet it’s shorter than this new 699 foot tower. Also BRICKELL FLATIRON is 736 feet & should old look slightly taller.

If you are that paranoid about sea level rise, leave the tropical paradise and go grow potatoes in Idaho.
