Here’s The Full 2016 Chinese Plan For Twin Towers With Up To 78 Stories On The Former Capital At Brickell Site

Here’s a look at a 2016 proposal to develop twin Brickell towers, that now looks unlikely to ever come about.

The project was called 1420 South Miami Avenue, replacing the former Capital at Brickell proposal for the same site. It was submitted to Miami’s Urban Development Review Board in 2016.

Two towers would have risen 75 and 73 stories. One tower would have risen 948 feet, with the second at 919 feet.

The project would have included:

  • ‭1,264‬ residential units
  • 99,234 square feet of retail
  • 242 hotel keys
  • Multiple levels of retail, hotel ballrooom, restaurant, and amenity spaces
  • 1,683 parking spaces, including some underground

A complex court battle over the property is ongoing, with two partners in Hong Kong and China fighting for control. A sale of the land was said to have taken place recently, but is being disputed. A Hong Kong court has ordered the property sold.

Replacement of two stories worth of fill that was dug out for Capital at Brickell over a decade ago is also now underway, at the order of the city.

Arquitectonica was the architect.
