Megacenter Brickell Set To Begin Vertical Construction Within Weeks

Megacenter Brickell Set To Begin Vertical Construction Within Weeks

A tower crane will soon be installed at the Megacenter Brickell construction site, where foundation work is already underway.

According to a filing with the Federal Aviation Administration, the crane will be installed as soon as October 1. It will rise 252 feet above ground, or 266 feet above sea level, and be in place for at least six months.

Megacenter Brickell will include:

  • 74,790 square feet of storage
  • 45,080 square feet of residential (57 units)
  • 16,670 square feet of office
  • 9,134 square feet of retail
  • 111 parking spaces

Chile’s Red Megacentro is the developer. Reinaldo Borges is the architect.

I really dont get why theyre putting storage units here – its an extremely busy corner and theres two large storage facilities nearby, one of which next to the wharf is brand new just down the street. Besides that looks out of scope with the neighborhood just not a good fit at all imo very dissapointed with this…

The storage game is all about units coming online and renters, which to the east is established and west of 95 is just beginning. Statistically Miami is “under-storaged” per storage developers, and they are simply filling a demand, especially given that many facilities in SFL are niche or premium with additional features many dont want to or cant afford to pay. THAT being said I agree that the building is not a looker by any means 🙂

For the same reason the guy invented 6-Minute Abs when 7-Minute Abs already existed.

Potentially adding a lot more traffic to a terrible intersection. I won’t envy anyone coming or going to the property.

Welcome to city life. Once upon a time there wasn’t even an intersection or anything other than trees in this area.

Nice building, shame about the parking minimums forcing the garage within the building. Increases costs to developer and then end-user.

Ok Einstein, how else do you propose people get there? The nearest Metro or Metromover is blocks away, and not everyone wants to take a taxy/uber/lyft to get to place. Until you invent teleportation parking is a must.

Not the lot to do it on, as it’s T6 adjacent to I-95, but almost all of little Havana falls under the parking exemption zone just as long as the building mass is under 10,000 sf. There are ways to do no parking, but no one is interested in doing “small scale” development.

You have a 1950’s mentality.

Um, this is “small scale” development.

On the contrary, it adds value to the property since future residents that are fortunate to own a car, can also live here.

Hopefully, they’ll offer cheaper rent to those without cars. Kind of like Melo is doing in the Omni district.

Terrible design. Reinaldo Borges used to be so cool. 👍🏼😕

That is very little parking for 57 units and all that commercial space. this is an adequately parked development and probably the best screened storage facility/garage in south Florida. They even utilize lifts. Stop complaining this is a good design and scale for the neighborhood.

This is a shockingly tasteless pile of garbage. Slapping supergraphics, “graffiti,” and ripped-off architectural accents from recent precedent are not a way to “architecturalize” a building. It’s lipstick on a pig. When you put ugly lipstick on a pig, it’s still a pig, just uglier and more expensive.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

“shockingly tasteless pile of garbage” I’ve been called that once or twice in my life!!!
