Grand Opening Of 690-Unit Brickell Heights: First Look Inside

Brickell Heights is now complete, with the first condo owners now getting the keys to their units.

The sold-out twin-tower project has begun closings of the 690 condominium units today, according to Related Group President Carlos Rosso.

A “great pedestrian sidewalk” has been created in front of Brickell Heights, Rosso told The Next Miami.

At sidewalk level, there is 20,000 square feet of retail space. In addition, there are entrances to two residential lobbies, an office condo lobby, and entrances to Equinox and Soul Cycle.

Curious what rental prices will be, compared to other buildings

Beautiful towers and interior, but a “great pedestrian sidewalk?” So an average width disrupted by two steps which serve no purpose, and bare patches of grass with ugly street lights for dogs to to defecate all over? Up the steps better have cafe and restaurant tables, and trees mature.

Agree completely. Why can’t developers spend a small amount extra and get some larger trees put in. An extra five years of tree growth would be roughly 5k, and add an extra five feet in height and width to each. Trees are shown to help lower the temperature around the sidewalk.

I don’t mind waiting for the trees to grow, but I hope it’s allowed for them to form a beautiful canopy, and a hurricane doesn’t wipe them out or utilities demand they be removed because hypothetical power or sewer line intrusion.

Yeah, you’re right, just look at the hundreds and hundreds of people in the pictures above pushing and shoving to get past each other because those sidewalks are so ridiculously narrow.

Your mind is ridiculously narrow if you don’t understand planning for the future. It’s people like you who consider street conditions in Brickell circa 1940s when it was a low-rise neighborhood to be adequate for present development.

And it’s people like you who sits on your arse and whine about any and everything but don’t build anything.

Okay Mr. Perez. You realize the best development usually has input from citizens?

Interesting design I would have to see it in person first to voice my opinion.

The back flow preventer that blocks the entire sidewalk near the Burger King isn’t a ‘grand pedestrian sidewalk’ – it is a joke and bad planning.

and in the 7th pic a street lamp in the sidewalk.

Have you ever walked around in Brickell?

These comments..smh

Yes – I’ve walked around in Brickell and noticed the 3′ sidewalk blocked by a no parking sign next to a one way sign next to a meter for parking adjacent to a street lamp all next to a do not enter sign which all makes the sidewalk wide enough for one person to pass by at a time. It is a JOKE! Not only can most of the signs in Brickell and Downtown be consolidated to one pole, but most of the obstructions can be moved to the side of the sidewalk. There’s no reason a street light needs to be in the MIDDLE of a sidewalk.

Not to mention the underutilized stooped plazas which could have been wider sidewalks with plenty of room for landscaping, signs, and streetlights without disrupting pedestrian flow.

Clearly have never walked around in Brickell. It actually has a village feel in front of the building

Village? The main highway into Brickell (8th Street) is right in front.

Any idea when Equinox will open?

“great pedestrian sidewalk”

Sad that it’s an accomplishment in Miami.

Anonymous

The accomplishment is the dramatic change that has occurred in Brickell over last 10-15 years.

Miami in general has come back from bankruptcy to becoming emerging great city.

You must work in PR.

Sidewalk is like 4 feet wide. Tragic.

Um yeah, you can see in the pictures all those people bumping into each other….

Maybe because it hasn’t opened yet?

Uh yeah, it’s like, when this building opens, every tenet that lives in it will be outside walking around on these sidewalks at the same time.

A lot of you people are not logical at all.

Um yeah, when it does and the surroundings continue to develop, do you think such a restricted sidewalk is appropriate?
