Lobbyist For Icon Brickell Registers Over Church Property Where Supertall Tower Planned

Icon Brickell Condominium No. Two Association, Inc has hired a lobbyist to represent them over the church property next door where a supertall residential tower is being planned, according to a City of Miami database.

The lobbyist is from Corcoran Partners and represents the association in regard to “development of all land currently designated as parking behind the First Presbyterian Church at 609 Brickell Ave,” according to the July 11 registration.

The First Miami Presbyterian Church approved a $240 million deal last year with developers 13th Floor Investments and Key International to redevelop a surface parking lot and school with a potential 80-story supertall tower.

One church member however had filed a complaint with the religious body that oversees the institution. As of February, a settlement was being considered.

“Entitled residents hire a lobbyist to ensure 4 food trucks selling $15 burritos remain a permanent fixture on an undeveloped lot.”

Please don’t fuck this one up, NIMBY’s. This space deserves a gorgeous tower.

Sounds like the nimbys are vastly outnumbered and outgunned on this one.

NIMBYs don’t see the value created.

These are more CAVE (Citizens Against Virtually Everything).

People need to accept that Miami is no longer a sleepy little town with about 1,000 people. There are individual buildings in Miami that now house more people than the entire city when it was in its infancy.

Um, that was in the 1890s. This is just plain NIMBYism.

I remember when I used to live in the Atlantis at Brickell and the Association waisted money with lawyers ( sharks) to stop the construction of the building next door.
Senator Annette Tadfeo ( She/Her\Ella) was the Director of the association 🙃

These churches should give at least half of the proceeds of the lot sale to the community.

What a tacky design! 😂 fits in with the rest of Miami!

It’s not like we really have that much design detail. I’d reserve judgement until having a few different views of the design. What I’ve seen is basically a ground level concept rendering. Maybe I’m missing some other photos?

As much as I would love to see the development, that has got to be one of the ugliest buildings I have ever seen. The rendering looks like it was done in 2006.

2006 had some nice buildings that were never built. What would you rather have, a recycled Arquitectonica box with juxtaposed balconies and giant parking pedestal from 2016?

It doesn’t have to go from over-styled and veined dong to Arquitectonica box. A development site of this caliber and price could easily justify a Foster, OMA, or Stern building,
