‘Iconic’ Citadel HQ To Begin Construction In Brickell Late 2023/Early 2024

More details have been revealed about Citadel’s headquarters tower planned in Brickell.

Former NYSE President Tom Farley said on CNBC that billionaire Citadel founder Ken Griffin revealed new details of the HQ to him last week.

The new building will be “iconic,” Farley said.

Groundbreaking is planned in late 2023 or early 2024, he added.

Farley said both he and Griffin think the new HQ building will be a competitive advantage in recruiting talent to Miami.

Farley said he was a bit “misty eyed” that a city in the north was losing a great business.

Griffin was “early and right on this Miami trend, and he’s really doubling down,” Farley said.

I like the fact that the word iconic is used in order to bring more companies

So the update is that the building will be iconic? Okay..
I don’t think they’ve announced the short listed architectural firms yet have they?

The news is that Griffin is responding publically to the Tribune trash talk.

Citadel doesn’t joke with office space. Look at their NYC HQ at 425 park, beautiful modern building

Based on their assemblage next door, I’d be shocked if Aimco weren’t partnering up with Citadel for something incredible here… This is a once in 5 lifetimes opportunity for both parties.

And because apparently money is no object, let them build the one and only iconic buildings all others are judged by, the one that appears next to the word “Iconic” in the encyclopedia.

Enough with Brickell. It’s filled up. They need to start building these “iconic” office buildings in Downtown Miami.

Or upzone some parts of East Little Havana to accommodate the overflow once Brickell is built out.

Well, the CBD in Downtown Miami is hardly utilized for the “business” community anymore like it used to be. Bringing the business community back to Downtown Miami should be a priority for the city again.

No thanks. We don’t need more vertical sprawl, consisting of Arquitectonica and Melo cereal boxes with giant parking garages without a Metrorail extension. In the mean time, wait for West Brickell and the A&E District to redevelop vacant lots, and by then maybe Manlet and MDC will sell their properties on the north side of the Miami River.

The Downtown core is where it’s needed most. What used to be a financial center in the 80s/90s is now just dead and boring. Too bad vacant lots where the Southeast Financial center stands was already developed with stucco cereal boxes from the 2000s condo boom. And I’m not just talking about Arquitectonica or Mana. Real Class A office space could have been there. The amount of office space density that could have gone there would have been great for that location. Oh well.

MDC is not selling their properties btw. The Wolfson campus is there.

Lots of empty lots still on Brickell.
I mean lots.
But I would love to see more CBD development

Still plenty of junk in West Brickell and even in southern portion of Brickell Ave that can be torn down and redeveloped.

Exactly! Why are people trash talking Brickell? Like it or not, it’s the center of Miami’s business and still has a lot of room to grow.

Brickell is an annexation of Miami’s business community. If you were around in Miami in the 90s/80s then you would know the Downtown CBD is where the banks were and ultimately where the business community was.

meh. no one believes that. Just another building that no one will care about a month or two after it opens, if it opens. ‘Iconic’ is so overused.
