New: 372-Unit Broadstone At Brickell Planned By Alliance Residential

Development in Brickell continues to move westward.

Alliance Residential recently submitted plans for a 372-unit rental project called Broadstone At Brickell.

It will be built on a 1.86 acre assemblage at 267 SW 11th Street – just steps from I-95. Several structures on the site, including buildings that date back as far as 1920, will be demolished.

The project includes a 24-story, 253-foot residential building, along with a 7-story, 520-space parking garage. 335,700 square feet of the project is leaseable residential, with 60,205 square feet of common space and 11,430 square feet of amenity space.

Unit Breakdown:

  • Studio units – 11
  • 1 Bedroom – 221
  • 2 Bedroom – 130
  • Townhouse – 10

Amenities for residents include a pet grooming spa, fitness area, and theater (and of course a pool deck).

Broadstone is being designed by architect Dorsky + Yue. Architectural features of the building include aluminum guardrails and an artistic vinyl mesh along the garage.

Alliance Residential is also building SoMa at Brickell (formerly Broadstone Brickell Lofts), which is already well under construction.

Boring design?

Heck, alot of people in Miami are now more concerned with affordable rental prices than how glamorous a building looks outside.

Extremely boring design!

So first we have Broadstone Brickell lofts across from Publix on Coral Way and now Broadstone at Brickell tower about a block away?

I don’t see any ground floor retail on either project….isn’t that required by code Miami 21?

Why do people expect starchitects and iconic architecture for every project? You know what makes something iconic? Uniqueness and rarity kind of play into that. Every tower can’t be an icon…especially at $300/ft.

Who said anything about this project being designed by a starchitect or having iconic architecture?

Very simple modifications could make it more interesting. As it looks now, it’s a boring rectangular box without street-front retail.

Yeah boring but at least they’re not building it with “Affordable Housing” credits, so while boring, it should be better than those affordable housing things they have built lately in West Brickell and still more affordable than anything east of metrorail.

Exactly

Too much parking. City of Miami needs to implement a parking maximum. This is steps from the Brickell metro station and Metromover. It’s unacceptable.

Problem is trying to sell those units with no parking.

This project is being built as rental and not condominium, the same as Alliances’ loft project on the 13th street. You can see some significant value engineering done on the building which you can see on Melo’s rental projects as well but agree that the building could use some visual upgrades without affecting their budget.
There is about 4.5 million square feet of retail development in the pipeline from Brickell to Aventura and certain locations such as West Brickell might not be able to support it.

At least this building won’t cause any accidents on I-95, since no one will ever give it another look…

People here really crack me up. They always complain about anyone building a non luxury building for regular folks and how they could make the building look much butter with “simply modifications”. If they could make the building look better with no cost believe me they would be doing it.

If it’s so easy to do then point out all the buildings that look better and rent/sell for the same price or less.

As far as ground floor retail, please actually LEARN about what you are criticizing. Miami 21 makes it so there has to be a use on the ground floor. That is you can’t build a garage and have to walk down an entire city block looking at the blank wall of a garage on the primary and secondary street of the project. So instead you have to put a use (residential, commercial, etc) lining the ground floor. As you can see from the rendering they chose to put residential units lining the street.

While I don’t like the colors and such I agree we need more of these as infill to give us a fuller downtown.

No where near downtown? I think you need a map: http://www.miamidda.com/pdf/2013Greater_Downtown.pdf

It’s not the central business district, but it is a part of the greater downtown area.

That map helps highlight the ridiculousness of the metro routes.

Retail on the ground floor of this building is not needed. With Mary Brickell Center and Brickell City Centre, plus a few other projects in the pipeline with retail, too many places with retail on the ground floor can cause an area to start looking unattractive once the economy takes a slight dip and for rent signs appear all over the place.

Also, there are many areas north of Where Miami World Center is projected to go up in that would look wonderful with thirty to fifty buildings like this one on those empty lots.
