Mature Trees Planted At Riverfront Lot Next To Brickell City Centre

Mature Trees Planted At Riverfront Lot Next To Brickell City Centre

Landscaping and site improvements are underway at 451 South Miami Avenue, which sits on the Miami River.

Mature trees have now been planted at the property, and pavers have been delivered to the site.

The property is owned by Miami River Holdings LLC, said to be controlled by Carlos Mattos. Nicolas and Isabella Mattos are listed as managers.

Brickell City Centre’s North Squared site is across the street, currently vacant and used for parking.

The only active construction permit for the property is to install temporary toilets.

No riverwalk currently exists on the site, but property owners are required to build one when they develop their land.

This will probably be something like the Wharf and then redeveloped in the next cycle. Land too valuable and expensive to not build towers on.

Hope all the people speculating that they’re doing a temporary installment like The Wharf are right (that is, if the alternative was that the land stays empty and boarded up until eventual construction). I hope that The Wharf’s success changes developer strategy going forward with respect to land banking, cycle timing etc. You can defray holding costs directly AND market the area beforehand with a little creativity.

Seems like they’ll make this area into a temporary park until they’re ready to build during the next cycle, which would be a welcoming deviation from the norm especially as a waterfront lot. Or they’re completely wasting their time and money to plant trees that’ll be behind a locked gate…

Nope. It will have a beer garden, restaurants, event space and the river greenway will connect with Brickell on the River and the Metromover station.

Sure. Simply purchase the property and do as you please.

Sure! You can buy the site and keep trees on it.

They are probably being careful not to build anything “permanent” which will require them to build the riverwalk.

Looks like they planted dead trees. Why do they look like?

Why are people so adamant about having a building in every single corner of the city? 29374 buildings is not enough? will keeping this plot for trees really kill you ?

Why do people want Miami to turn into Manhattan so much? IF YOU WANT CONCRETE! GO BACK UP NORTH!

Most of the Miami is too sprawling to support a true urban environment. Brickell/Downtown, even with all the development they’ve experienced over the past decade and change, are still TREMENDOUSLY under built.

IF YOU DON’T WANT CONCRETE GET OUT OF THE URBAN CORE AND GO WEST TO KENDALL

Heck, to witness what you said, all one has to do is look at areas next to metrorail and metromover stops that are woefully lacking in residential structures next to them.

What if I was born and raised in Miami and wanted more concrete?

Okay, forget the concrete, I’ll just get ready to see more trees blown down after the next hurricane.

How about you spend millions of dollars and buy this lot then donate it to the city for a park. Until then, just be happy they are not turning it into a parking lot or garage.

Maybe because it’s prime real estate, and the other downtown parks also on prime real estate and too underutilized?

That land is about $1K or MORE s/f — no developer in their right mind would leave it as a park especially when there are no government incentives for a park. The entity that should build parks is government officials and they’re not doing it. I don’t understand why people think private land owners should be providing parks on their expensive land. It’s a financial issue not because developers hate green space.

Great to see some trees that provide shelters to the homeless population

Glad you’re so concerned about the homeless.. now what day and time are you giving out free sandwiches?

Miami-Dade has made big strides over the last decade in reducing the homeless population. The remainder is mostly either transient homeless (will move or get back on their feet again) or the hard core cases – drug dependent, mental illness, unskilled, unable to cope, etc.
They are homeless, but they are still human beings.
