Next To Brickell City Centre, 7 Restaurants & Tap Room Planned At Miami Riverside

Brickell will soon be getting a “family oriented open-air culinary experience” with multiple restaurants and a tap room along the Miami River next to Brickell City Centre.

Riverside Miami is the name of the proposal. It will activate a site that has remained vacant for years, despite being in a prime location on the Miami River in Brickell.

According to a presentation made at a subcommittee meeting of the Miami River Commission last month by Antonio Primo and Greenspoon Marder attorney Bill Riley, the project will include:

  • 7 local restaurants, and a tap room,
  • Event space for movie nights
  • An enclosed structure to be built by Event Star, which built a similar structure at The Wharf and builds tents during events like Art Basel
  • Art installations
  • $200,000 of landscaping (90% native plants)
  • Public Riverwalk, which is narrower than the minimum requirements of the code (the MRC subcommittee voted to approve only if the full width riverwalk is built as required by code)
  • Off-site parking (the property is in the most densely populated area in America outside NY, and many visitors are expected to arrive by foot)

Late night events are not planned, Riley said, and background music volume will be kept below conversation level. More than half of sales are required to come from food sales rather than liquor.

A Temporary Use Permit is being requested with potential annual renewals for a maximum of a total 3 years. Any additional extension will require city commission approval.

The Miami River Commission is scheduled to review the proposed plans, including the riverwalk, on May 6.

Family oriented? Yeah right that’s just to get it approved with minimal opposition. I plan on getting drunk here quite a few times.

I’m with you. I wish the government in Miami would start boasting and presenting the city as an attraction for adults and leave the “family oriented” attraction stuff to someplace else like Orlando.

Nice temporary hold. Will take away from MBV and wharf. Competition is good tho.

Wharf is coming down for development, this will definitely fill a nice gap that place is going to leave and a better location for going out in the Brickell area.

Good job Miami River Commission. Regardless of being temporary the developer should be required to uphold at least minimum width, and keep the walkway open even when the business is not open, the same as anyone else. (Including the developers at the Miami Herald Site who should open up bay walk access now.)

Will his be a temporary thing? I believe this is the vacant land just north of BCC, and will eventually be develop into a condo tower as part of the expansion of BCC to the north.

“Will his be a temporary thing?” Sheesshh!.. can you read?

From the article:

TNM – it would be helpful to your readers to include what the code minimum actually is and what the developer is proposing. 12 feet required vs 11 feet proposed is very different from 10 vs 4, for example.

A nice playground would be a good idea since it is ‘family oriented’

Seven restaurants to compete with restaurants in Brickell City Centre and elsewhere in Brickell?.. yeah, that makes sense.

I was wondering why they removed the pavers they had installed. It’s a temporary thing, who cares if the riverwalk is a little narrower.

I’d prefer a shake shack like in NYC. There has been about five new food halls to open in the past year.
