Demolition Permit Applied For At One Brickell City Centre Supertall Site

A demolition permit has just been applied for at the One Brickell City Centre supertall site.

The demolition permit is for a building at 700 Brickell Avenue and was applied for on January 20, according to Miami Building Department records.

Review of the permit isn’t yet underway, since the full plans have yet to be filed.

There also does not yet appear to be a demolition permit pending yet for a separate building at 799 Brickell Plaza, which sits on part of the One Brickell City Centre footprint.

According to the newly filed demolition permit, total demolition of 221,243 square feet is planned, at an estimated cost of $1.35m.

Alpha Wrecking Group is listed as the contractor.

One Brickell City Centre is planned to rise 68 stories. It is FAA approved for a height of 1,040 feet above ground.

The project will be mostly office space, with a restaurant and rooftop helipad.

Related Companies and Swire Properties are the developers.

Brickell’s Class “A” office vacancy is 7.9% with demand at an all time high. For those of you keeping score that is a extremely low vacancy number.

How tall will this tower be, 984 FT AGL, 1,040 FT AGL, or something in between?

What do they mean by “FAA approved for a height of 1,040 feet above ground”. Does that mean the tower is expected to be that height? Or it is approved to go as high as 1,040 feet but may actually be shorter?

It went from 80 floors to 68 floors to now 66 floors. Who knows what will be built or even if it will be built.

This project, which has been incrementally moving forward since 2016, will move forward as office tower over the next several years.

Considering Miami already has one of the three largest skylines in the United States, that is still good news!

There are less than 3 contiguous spaces over 25,000 SF available right now in Brickell, the market is so competitive rents and demand are at an all time high. The influx of personal wealth and businesses to Miami isn’t going to stop.

As a city we’re focusing too much on catering to large tech hedge funds and vc companies now. These spaces are only rented by huge companies not small organic mom and pop shops. We’re focusing so much on catering to people from out of state and their migration to Miami but not the people already here

The organic mom and pop shops weren’t cutting it. As a longtime Miami resident, I welcome the current migration trends. Keep on coming down and making Miami even better!

Demolition means no advancement.
The Cipriani site has been a demolished open pit for 15 years and counting…

Not always the case. Many buildings in the Urban Core have quickly followed the demolition of improvements previously occupying the land.

Pay attention Tampa. Those 26 storey cracker boxes you’re building ain’t cutting it. Height means clout!

A whole lot of office space in a 15% vacancy market, and nearly 30% in the downtown area. Perhaps switch more of this up to residential?

This will rise as an office tower.

It may not rise at all given the above data.

This project has been in the works since 2016. One Brickell City Centre is funded, partially leased, and will rise as an office tower.

Spend 5 mintues to study what happened to the last two office towers that Swire developed and leased up.

Is that a statistic for NYC? Miami is thriving. The new Office Building nearby is fully leased! People want to work in offices in Miami and live close by, walk to work, nightlife, and metro-ride to other neighborhoods. Brickell has a ton of residential spots in Brickell and more on the way, including the new River district.

“the Brickell submarket had Miami-Dade’s lowest vacancy rate, 11.9 percent, in 2022’s fourth quarter.”—-from TheRealDeal.

Not great on paper, but it’s literally half the office vacancy rate of downtown Atlanta and Houston.

You are looking at Miami-Dade statistics versus Brickell. That is apples versus oranges. People are not driving far to offices because of traffic. They are moving to Brickell and working in offices that are within walking distance.

Correction, looking at Class A offices versus old dated office space that’s vacant because it’s going to be demolished and replaced soon.

The thing is this building isn’t downtown and not Brickell. The downtown vacancy rate is much higher than the Brico vacancy rate especially in the area close to the courthouse and near flagler

Its in the downtown submarket, not brickell though. Once youre over the river thats downtown, and its a very different landscape on that side, especially around the court house, the Fed Ex distribution center, and Flagler. I know they are working on it, but right now that area is experiencing a lot of issues.

I read very well. Give the full context:

“ Led by the fully pre-leased 830 Brickell office tower under construction, the Brickell submarket had Miami-Dade’s lowest vacancy rate, 11.9 percent, in 2022’s fourth quarter.”

“… Miami’s Brickell and downtown West Palm Beach continued setting the pace for South Florida’s office market’s momentum in the final quarter of last year, according to a recently released report.”

Brickell is leading the way for office rentals and momentum is thriving.

^^you said I didn’t include Brickell vacancy, which is wrong. Don’t spin it, admit it.

Never mind. I admit it, I misread the quote. I jumped to conclude it was a high rate when the author said “not great on paper” but he/she was suggesting it’s a low rate. You all are right.

Also I conflated the two comments with different contradicting statistics. Something seemed off…

Miami/Brickell needs some office towers for all these remote workers to work when companies need them back in the office! I doubt they will want to go back to NYC, Chicago and California
