JDS Buys Brickell Site Where 1 Southside Park Will Be Built, Submits Project To FAA

JDS Development Group has closed on the purchase of several properties in Brickell where the twin-tower One Southside Park project will be built, according to The Real Deal.

In addition, the developer has submitted the project to the Federal Aviation Administration for review.

The combined purchase for the newly purchased properties is $24 million. The developer also has a separate deal with the City of Miami to include Fire Station Number 4 in the assemblage, in exchange for a new $8 million fire station and at least $10 million in public benefits.

JDS paid $9 million for property next to the Fire Station at 191 Southwest 12th Street with 10,500 square feet of land and a 12-unit apartment building that will be demolished.

Directly adjacent, the developer paid $14.5 million for vacant land with 22,500 square feet.

The FAA application was submitted October 19 with multiple heights, the tallest at 773 feet above ground, or 786 feet above sea level.

The project is also now in review by Miami-Dade County planners. It is located in the Brickell Rapid Transit Zone, allowing review by the county instead of the city.

One Southside Park will include 62-story towers with:

  • 32,000 square feet of governmental uses: the new $8 million City Fire House No. 4.
  • A “world class hotel” with 200 rooms, with accompanying amenity spaces.
  • 200,000 square feet of office space
  • 11,000 square feet of commercial / food and beverage spaces
  • 1,175 residential units
  • 100,000 square feet of health and wellness uses
  • Up to 1,000 parking spaces
  • A rebuilt Southside Park

Shop Architects is designing the project. James Corner Field Operations of New York will design landscape for both the project itself and the rebuild of Southside Park.

The developer has 18 months from site plan approval to begin construction, as a condition of the deal for the fire station. The fire station must then be completed 36 months after work begins.

JDS seems to be a very serious developer. Very strong record between Miami and NYC. They were on board with PMG to build Echo Brickell.

I moved here in 2003 as a little kid and remember seeing the Chase bank on 9th street completely isolated. Now that whole area around South Miami Avenue is the heart of the city.

A building of this size west of the metro is a big deal. Hopefully this is just the start =D

Awesome to see a project with great potential to move forward. I believe a new park, the fire station and health and wellness services will help tremendously and area that still lacks on these 3 areas. Love to see a development that solves urban problems. Now we need more schools!!!

How are they allowing this building to be so tall considering the code in west Brickell? Does it have to do with buyng bird rights? Building a fire station? Curious.

I wonder how they’re going to sell residents on living above a fire station, can’t wait to hear that creative pitch. “You won’t sleep a wink, but at least you won’t catch fire either!”

It’s an awesome looking project and it’s nice to see that area start to fill in closer to 95.

This is a really strange looking building. Almost wish they could use the brilliant old design from 830 Brickell from about 5 years ago. I understand its a huge theoretical but I just really hope that OKO builds that old design somehwrre in Miami not that I don’t like the new design.

Here it is for reference:

Wasn’t this already done along time ago? Buying the lot and then securing an FAA approval.

City staff need to push the kaboosh on this talk of 1,000 parking spaces.

youre going to have retail, office, a fire station, multifamily and a hotel in this building. Even thought its next to the metrorail the vast majority of people in miami do not live near the metrorail and frankly dont want to ride on it considering all the crazyness that happens on it

My comment from earlier this month:

– 200,000 square feet of office space
– 100,000 square feet of health and wellness uses
– 200 unit hotel
– Fire Station
– 1,175 residential units

Do you really expect there to be no parking for a project of this size? Building towers is done for profit, not for charity. If it were profitable to build more units or office space than parking then they would do it but as it stands they deem they need 1,000 parking spots. Seems pretty reasonable to me considering other projects in Miami.

You must have not read the article, or be completely stupid not comprehending the size/density of the project. I think it is both as neither explanation has to be mutually exclusive. The total number of allocated parking spaces are less than one per residential unit, notwithstanding the commercial, retail, and governmental uses.

^ Forget it.. that’s just another one of those “anti-parking” whiners who come on this site.

I’m not sure if this is the best thing to build in Miami, it looks like a soviet project on steroids, Frankfurt, maybe I don’t know 🤷‍♂️

Makeup your mind.. Frankfurt is in Germany and never was a part of the now defunct Soviet Union.

It has a little too much foliage for a soviet project.

Not the nicest design, I agree. It looks very dystopian. I love the height for west Brickell though. Much needed

I agree but he has a point. There has never been a building west of the metro south of 8th street to be built taller than about 30 stories because of coding. I’m all in for a buiding this tall in the area but not sure how it was approved.

Because Dan, the code has always been bullshit.
