1060 Brickell Withdraws Appeal Of Ugo Colombo’s Brickell Flatiron

1060 Brickell’s condo association has dropped an appeal that had challenged approval of the Brickell Flatiron condo project.

In a letter to the Miami’s Planning & Zoning Department, the president of the condo association wrote that the appeal had been withdrawn. Becker & Poliakoff, a law firm that had been hired by the association, no longer represented them in the matter, he wrote.

A spokesman for the project said that the project remained on track and that sales were strong. No other challenges were pending before the city, and the developer is preparing to break ground later this year, he said.

1060 Brickell is a twin-tower, 576-unit condominium built in 2008. It is located across the street from the Brickell Flatiron site.

Looks like the association just got a pay day.

Or they avoided a big hit to their pockets. If they lose the appeal, they would have to pay court costs along with other expenses.

Doubt it. Lawyers most likely threatened back with code violations or items which would cause a special assessment to the tenants.

Brickell is fast becoming a concrete jungle and that is the way it is supposed to be. Every major city has one and like many people already call us we are the Manhattan of the South. Like it or not that is the future.

Let’s stop kidding ourselves. Brickell is no Manhattan of the south. Yes, Manhattan has an incredible skyline — but it also has variations in density throughout, towers side by side with smaller scale and historic buildings, ample public transportation and parks. Brickell has none of that. It’s more like a Sao Paulo or Dubai.

What variations ? I’m from Manhattan it’s a big concrete jungle been to São Paulo and all the buildings have graffiti all over so we are not that either. Stop trying to compare ! There is no where like Miami.

Yes in a few years when you look at Miami from I – 195 Miami will resemble Manhattan.

WOW. What a missed opportunity for such an amazing sliver or real estate. The Norton design actually deserved the name “Flatiron”. If they are going to build this uninspired mess, they should at least name it appropriately…maybe something like “Another Brickell Condo” or “Tower on Top of Parking Block & Pool Deck #57”

Looking at the pics, it seems Colombo is building a low-rise building in a portion of the teiangular shape park. Can anyone confirm this? It seems that it would be where sales center is located right now.

Only because the last pic is total fantasy. It’s missing a number of buildings currently in construction.

So……the skyline looked better without all of the new buildings? Really?

Yes ioannes, it is. I’ve always known that FlatIron was that peice to give the center of Brickell that “filled in” look that it needs. Now with Panorama, Echo, and the later supertall “One Brickell CC,” Miami will have that portion of it’s skyline ready and then we can focus on the our skyline that’s on the northern half of the Miami river.
