One Brickell City Centre Zoning Changes Approved, Fire Station Now In Permitting

Developer Swire Properties has obtained approval for zoning changes needed to build the One Brickell City Centre Supertall office tower on a first reading.

Miami commissioners voted unanimously to approve the One Brickell City Centre zoning changes at a meeting on July 28, which will allow larger floorplates, among other changes.

A second and final reading is scheduled for September.

The developer is also now in active permitting to build a temporary fire station for the city at Brickell City Centre.

Swire agreed to build a permanent fire station in 2019, as part of the approval for two new mostly-residential Brickell City Centre towers that will be built on the Tobacco Road and Associated Photo properties.

The developer commenced construction permitting in 2019 for a temporary fire station to be built on the Brickell City Centre North Squared lot that will be in place until the permanent station is built inside one of the new towers.

The city then halted the permitting process for the temporary station, but recently allowed it to resume, a representative of the developer told commissioners.

According to the temporary fire station construction permit, 1,640 square feet is being built at an estimated cost of $288,000.

 

 

 

The permanent fire station will be in one of these two new towers, while the temporary station will be on the North Squared lot across from the former La Centrale.

Swire gearing up to complete city center, which they shouldn’t have delayed in the first place. One Brickell will be transformative.

They could add more to it because there is still plenty of low density near BCC

City of Miami Fire Dept is understaffed and with really bad stations from the 1950’s. Not to mention that theyre underpaid compared to every other Fire Dept down here. City officials need to get their act together. And use some of the money from developers to improve public safety instead of pocketing the money!!!

Tell that to the firefighters union, like all public service collective bargaining units, pocket the money while we have a “workforce” housing crisis.

Not sure what the Gov does with our property taxes, but one single block in Brickell brings millions vs. those huge blocks with houses in Doral, yet our streets and public areas/services are the worst. They can’t even finish construction on 9St by Brickell Heights/Publix and it’s been months! This area floods very easy with little rain.

Urban sprawl.
Imagine maintaining infrastructure for a city the size of a country. Budget is not enough for everything.

Why can’t the city require Swire to find and build a 5 acre park, at grade, for all the kids and pets of these hundreds of units the approve, almost willy-nilly.

The City of Miami Park department are a bunch of slackers who never do the hard work of imminent domain to get parks built, like other cities do!

If you want a huge-ass park to frolic in, take a short trip to the Everglades National Park, you’ll have all the park space you wanna run around in for days and it won’t cost you a dime. So stop trying to make these developers provide you with shit you already have but refuse to use. And it’s really a short trip away and you’ll amazed at how fast you can get there!

Hopefully the approachs to the bridge and the traffic circle will be reconfigured to make it safer and more comfortable for people on bicycle.

Same old design.
Galavanting balconies to create asymmetry.
Arquitectonica’s signature and only purpose. Been done before. Yawwwwwn

unrealistic expectations

The south tower is more mundane than those from the first phase, and it’s closer to the river. Hardly unrealistic expectations at all, but one would hope Steve Ross is involved here as well, and we get better architecture.
