One Brickell City Centre Groundbreaking Estimated For Late 2017

One Brickell City Centre could become the tallest tower in Miami, but construction likely won’t begin for at least another two years.

Developer Swire Properties is focusing on finishing up the first phase of Brickell City Centre before moving on to the next phase of the project, according to Mary Arda, a marketing director for the developer. A report last week in Miami Today that construction would begin in the first quarter of 2016 is erroneous, and the developer is targeting late 2017 to begin construction, she said.

By the end of this year, law firm Akerman will begin moving into office space, and residential condo units will begin closing. Also expected to open this winter is the EAST hotel. Only the retail portion of the project will open later, beginning in September of 2016.

In June, the Federal Aviation Administration approved the height of One Brickell City Centre at 1,040-feet above ground, which would make it one of the tallest in the U.S. Approval expires after 18 months, but the developer can apply for an extension.

I wish there was demand for office space. Can’t wait for this one to come of the ground

So it appears this will actually be our first supertall built, I’m not even considering that thing at Bayside, that may or may not get built, one . Fingers crossed they stick to that schedule.

You’re forgetting something marc, CCCC (those Chinese guys) just recently annouced their plans to start construction on Miami’s tallest tower in early 2016.

marc

That’s right but I’m a little skeptical it’ll get done as quickly as they want to but I hope it dose.

At least they gave us a schedule. That is a good thing.

The building will get built and as tall as advertised. We’re building phase 1 now.

Enough time to rework the design on this poppy

I agree. The height is one thing, but the architecture of the original Phase II office tower before they acquired the Miami Today Building looked far better.

They keep delaying this building. Doesn’t smell good.

They’ve never given a time table other than saying it wouldn’t start till the next or later phase. This is the first time they’ve mentioned an actual quarter to start.

Yep. Not sure where people get that this is delayed

Maybe you should check swireproperties.com page…’phase 2 scheduled for completion on 2018′

This man is right. “The project broke ground in June 2012. The first phase is scheduled for completion in 2015, followed by the second phase in 2018.” Under future projects, but this looks way outdated.

This tower never was part of “phase two”. The parcel got to the market later on.

I think you’re right.

I definitely think it will get built and put Swire on the map

Good One

Put Swire on the map?? haha
They are not only close to completing a 5.4 Million sf project in the heart of Brickell, but also built all of Brickell Key

…that’s a good one…Swire is a 200 year old company or Conglomerate that employes close to 140K people and are into Real Estate, Shipping, Transportation, Oil and Energy and Aerospace. They are one of the largest landowners in Hong Kong and saw Miami as an opportunity back in the 1980’s when then Mayor Maurice Ferré went to Hong Kong and sold them on Miami and its future. Swire recorded close to $8bn USD in 2014. Fair to say that Miami is most fortunate to have such a prestigious group believe and invest in Miami’s present and future.

Seems that there is too little demand for both residential and office space
