MiamiCentral Supertower Sites Sold For $50.8M

Florida East Coast Industries has completed the sale of two MiamiCentral Supertower sites where 83 story towers are planned, according to the SFBJ.

The total sales price for the two parcels was $50.8 million.

Two companies, NW 1 Ave South Tower LLC and NW 1 Ave North Tower LLC, are the buyers. Both are based in Great Neck, New York.

In January, Miami-Dade approved plans for two 83-story, 848-foot towers on the sites with a combined:

  • 2,007 residential units
  • 49,634 square feet of retail
  • 2,136 parking spaces

In February, the developer requested a legal document from Miami-Dade to allow the sale to proceed.

The sites are a part of Brightline’s MiamiCentral development.

Downtown Miami needs more greenspaces. I hope that with the Government Center Redevelopment Plan they incorporate some greenspaces. I really do enjoy the walking track adjacent to Government Center.

Agreed. It sucks that half the renders are of parking lots or roads.

Miami will never be that city. If you think developers or the city are going to sacrifice developable lots for a park you’re dreaming. This city has never prioritized its populace over tourism dollars and I don’t see it starting now.

There’s the huge “Simpson Park” in Brickell already that’s hardly used.

Face it, there are so many beaches in MiamiDade where visitors can stay in swanky hotels, where we can see and look at beautiful women, go and eat in fabulous restaurants , and go to bars and world renowned clubs. Being in MiamiDade county is not like being in Iowa or someplace like that in the middle of this country. A bunch of parks in downtown Miami is really not necessary because there are already enough parks to get your “park fetish” on..

That’s not true. Brickell isn’t dense enough to activate Simpson Park into something more like Central Park. It will be soon though and should be.

As I said before, people who don’t live here think that people want “beach” all the time. It’s absolutely our number one destination but it’s not a solution.

Residents need green, safe and well maintained public space. There’s a beautiful urban park in the middle of Nice, where the metro runs by, huge days trees provide shade, water flows up in fountains in sections for people to play in the water, giant jungle gyms designed like fish and sea creatures. It’s remarkable, and we have the same nice weather and international appeal here.

That’s what could enhance this city. People would love to walk from shop to shop and enjoy the beautiful weather and culture in Miami.

the whole point of simpson park is that it’s a low-trafficked respite of actual south florida ecology, in a small pocket of the rapdily urbanizing surroundings.

you can’t “do” anything with simpson park because you cannot “do” anything TO simpson park. it is a time capsule and intentionally so.

I can’t think Central Park because NYC has a population that’s over seven million people. The Everglades would swallow Central Park at least six times and still have room for anyone to get their “park fetish” on.

I was wondering how long it would be before one of you “Park Nuts” will come along and speak that same ole rubbish that’s, face it, most citizens in this city are tired of hearing. People would like to see more “office towers,” but you want to see more “parks” downtown People want to see more so-called “affordable housing” in this city.. but you want more “parks” downtown. People believe this city need and should have more “Mass Transit” lines.. but you want more “parks” downtown. Nearby, theirs the gigantic “Everglades National Park” for your convenience.. but you want and believe there should be more “parks” downtown. Also nearby there’s the huge “R Hardy Matheson County preserve,” but you want more “parks” downtown. There are plenty of “lavish” beaches at your convenience.. but you want more “parks” downtown.

I could go on an on but whats the point.. because you only know one thing, and that is, you want more “parks” downtown… smh….

I need more places to walk around in circles watching hobos piss in the shrubs. Miami has great beaches to walk on, but I like to live like I’m in Dallas or Detroit so I go to the beach twice a year.

Anonymous

Listen, the hobos are there because WE the people let those parks tl deteriorate to the point of it being only attractive to a homeless person…

THAT is why we need new green secure and safe parks. As people move here it will be a even more a public necessity.

You’re obvi not from here because if you were you’d know that peol dot. Go to the beach all the time! If they did they’re skin would fall off from the sun.

People enjoy green parks here, so try to put yourself in the perspective of the people who are going to live in these areas and have been left with low quality parks in the city core.

It’s not that there is not enough parks in Miami, it’s that you want to see more parks so they can let them deteriorate also!

They won’t deteriorate if they are planned right. The Underline is an absolute beauty. I see people doing yoga in the mornings, Monarch butterflies flutter, an older man who may have lived here his entire life plays classic music on the piano. It’s an absolute joy to see the city come alive.

The Next Miami is not the kind of city that lets a park deteriorate. It plans right from the start to prove a sustainable park with many utilitarian purposes in a zone that will attract residences. Miami has never had the size of population and industry it has now.

Think toward the future my friend, and try to let go of the past.

Miami is not any “coastal neighborhood in Florida”where we just need to develop along the bay – Miami is in a league of its own. It’s an international city more akin to Seattle where coastal views are appreciated but there is a luxury dense core in the center.

We can’t just keep building luxury condos along the bay – and assume the city is just going to keep growing vertically north/south. We need to spread the development west to I-95, and eventually further to the airport, and give some girth to this City!

Otherwise it’ll just be a resort town.

that is a decade out from happening. This decade will be continuing to fill in spots in Brickell. The beach will get some refreshing. North bay will get started on its refresh be two decades of work there. The River will get some luxury fill ins. Coconut Grove already has the beginnings of being another Brickell – go to the plaza area where the new Lowe Hotel just open. West of I-95 is were they are already building regular housing and vanilla buildings. South Dade will also be were they focusing on building up more. Problem will be transportation and water management for all this.

Very smart comment! Appreciate your sensibility and agree 💯 excited to see west brickell meld with rest of brickell, it’s this sliver of land that in every way feels connected but hasn’t been activated to full potential . It would complete Brickell.

Seattle has Mt. Rainier views from most everywhere as well as water. Miami has water only. Can’t compare the 2. Miami luxury is all about the coast, unless you’re providing a product like a 5000 sq ft house on an acre in Weston or Pinecrest. You can have multi-family development spread west, but the vast majority of it won’t be luxury. Miami will always primarily be a resort town, and there’s nothing wrong with that.

That’s not true. The views our west and of Brickell in my opinion are just as beautiful if not more than the bay. The sunsets are phenomenal and seeing all the lights and Coral Gables sparkle at night is just breathtaking.

Miami is Wall Street South. It’s just as internationally known as Seattle if not more so. It’s boasts the third largest skyline in America.

We have a variety of industries and headquarters for many major companies. It’s a beautiful place to live and visit, but it’s an even better place to work. We have diverse cuisines, Michelin star restaurants and the most amazing dining and event spaces.

The weather and lush landscaping is as close as it gets to paradise.

The lifestyle in Miami makes it a dream to wake up here every day and go into the office. It’s so much more than a resort town now, but the growth will make sure it stays that way.

It has become the most important city in America according to Fortune.com and having relocated from NYC I certainly can see why.

I can see it being the perfect place to raise a family too.

A giant volcano, ground breaking 🙄 the lush landscaping and architecture in Miami are their own views. The sunlight makes everything beautiful, unlike some other cloudier cities. We can harvest the landscaping and develop the architecture to be the shining star that people come to see, aside from yes the clear vast waters.

The expansive western horizon and sunsets are gorgeous. People like to see the city lit up at night just as much as they like seeing the water during the day. Don’t sell yourself short. Miami is more than water views, its much richer than that, believe me.

I hope that with the Government Center Redevelopment Plan they incorporate more greenspace. Not at this site, because its privately held. But in government properties. The walking track adjacent to government center is a great community space and it was always pretty well utilized by gov office workers pre-COVID. I think that it would be a great asset to preserve.

Simpson Park in Brickell Area has a history behind it and has several trees that are not found elsewhere in the USA. It also has a large amount of different vegetation. If you haven’t visited the main building do so and find out if they still have the guided tour of the park which many found very interesting and informative. Trees are important to our air quality.
