Related Group’s One Brickell project is now just about shovel-ready after the city’s Planning Department issued a final decision last month approving it, including several waivers from Miami 21 requirements.
Commissioners gave the green light after the developer agreed to certain conditions, including:
If One Brickell is built in phases, Related will repair and restore a 5-foot dock behind the property to serve as a temporary public riverwalk until Phase II commences construction (Related hasn’t committed to opening a temporary riverwalk before construction starts.) Eventually, there will be a full riverwalk connecting to the Miami Circle.
Impact fees and Public Benefits contributions for One Brickell will be used to construct transportation improvements that could improve traffic on the highly-congested Brickell Avenue drawbridge. That could include restoring a northbound lane that was recently removed, smart signage warning motorists of bridge openings and providing alternate routes, Southeast 10 Street cut through beneath Metro-Rail in order to access alternate routes, or other improvements.
As with all projects in Miami, a clearance letter from the FAA will be required prior to the issuance of a construction permit (the FAA is still reviewing the plans.)
