Park Across From Brickell Flatiron Could Be Transferred To Developer

Developer Allen Morris may soon gain control of a small city park, which would then become a development site.

City commissioners are scheduled to vote on the deal today.

Decades ago, Allen Morris deeded the park over to the city on the north and south side of Southwest 10th Street.

The company sued the city in 2014 claiming the city violated the deed restriction by conveying and rezoning the south parcel as part of approval for the Brickell Flatiron condo project. The city contends that the south property remains in use as a park.

As part of a settlement agreement, the city could deed over the north parcel to Allen Morris.

The developer would share profits in the project with the city, and agree to maintain a similar amount of outdoor space as currently exists.

Both Allen Morris and the owner of the adjacent Perricone’s property hired zoning attorneys in 2014, and a unity of title was also filed to unite the two sites.

My fav was early morning runs at the Axis where I would leave and come back and just watch owners take Their dog potty on the sidewalk. Zero shucks given.

I suggest to bulldoze Mary Brickell Village and create a Miami Central Park instead. Aesthetically nothing will be lost.

Yeah, Simpson Park does need another Park to compete with it.

They should have turned the empty brickell city center parcel into a central park. Instead, they built Omni 2.0 which is already a ghost town and way too hot for a luxury mall. Brickell is a case study in get the money and get out urban development.

Man…. I really didn’t wan’t this natural little corridor of trees between this park and Perricone’s to go… It looks small, but it gives Brickell something magical, like cosmopolitan city meets nature. I don’t mind the developer owning the land but the city should force them to leave those beautiful trees in there.

I agree. Btw, is Perricone’s part of Mary Brickell Village. I fear the day some developer will come and try to replace it with a high rise. That entire block should remain low and open. It’s our beautiful little village within our beuautiful concrete jungle. Brickell will not be the same without it.

I don’t think so, and I’m too lazy to research but I think they already sold the plot. Fact check me though.

No. Not only did they not sell, they are not a cooperating entity in the plans decsribed in the post.

Perricones and that beautiful little park are part of old Brickell. Does everything needs to be condo towers? The key words here are “the developers will share in the profits with the city”.

That’s a shame and sounds the death bell for Brickell. No light, no air, no space for a breeze. Yep, sure sounds like Manhattan to me. A testament to a completely corrupt city govt whose sole purpose, it seems, is too give hand jobs to developers.
How about a school or a library? Maybe even a park …..somewhere before you get to the Everglades. Shame on Miami

You’re supposed to speak up before it gets passed… Not much is going to change after. Tip #2: Clicking like on facebook isn’t a protest.

Not much I can do at the moment, as I’m 7000 miles away on the other side of the world until the end of summer. Thanks for the condescending facebook comment by the way, does it help you feel better about yourself?

What about the park on the south end? That triangle piece was designed by Raymond Jungles. It was a park, for about 5 minutes.

I love that park. Every few blocks should be an amazing jungle plaza like that. Now it will probably be parking for Perricone’s 2.0, same bad food below 40 stories of stucco parking.
