Photo: Construction Continues At 830 Brickell, Set To Become Miami’s Second Tallest Office Tower

Construction is continuing at the 830 Brickell tower, which will become the second tallest office tower in Miami upon completion at 724 feet above ground.

Only the 765-foot Southeast Financial Center will be taller.

Leasing interest in 830 Brickell is said to be high due to strong demand for office space in Miami. The developers said in March that activity in the Miami real estate market was “beyond anything we have ever seen.”

Private equity firm Thoma Bravo is among the leases already signed at the building, and negotiations for hundreds of thousands of square feet were said to be ongoing.

The tower will include 650,000 square feet of Class A office space.

Completion is scheduled for 2022.

The project is being developed by a joint partnership between OKO Group and Cain International.

This is a beautiful office complex…would really like to see other developers construct more office space to compete with cities that are attracting tech firms and other business

It’s not the building of office towers that brings the business’s. Friendly business environment (which we have) and talented workforce due to quality education system (we don’t have) is what attracts companies to move and grow here. Other factors as well (infrastructure, quality of life, etc.), but those are the main two.

Forget it.. there are thousands of people in this city who believes like this person, just “build more office buildings and they will come.”

You’re definitely wrong about talented workforce. Companies recruit talent from many places, they attract talent with high paying salaries. The reason for the lack of office space and low corporate presence here is companies go to corporate centers. Miami has never been one.

Professional talent is mobile. New York and California are doing a great job of encouraging outward migration. While it’s true that Miami doesn’t have the university strength/depth that NYC, Boston, Chicago, or SF have, it’s not essential because firms who choose to locate here can hire from any school they want.

attending a good school helps but it is up to you to be a good employee, work experience is more important.

Listen to me now…understand me later.
“talented workforce due to quality education system (we don’t have)”

Miami DOES have a quality education system. This is WHY these businesses are moving here now.

NEWSFLASH: Dateline 1980, 1990, 2000, and 2010. Miami weather is great and there are no no income taxes.

2020. Miami solved the quality education problem, the weather is great and there are no no income taxes.

Water views are never guaranteed unless you face the water directly… every buyer knows (or should know) that.

Pro Tip: if your purpose for buying an urban skyscraper 2 blocks from the waterfront is the “direct” view, then you are not a bright induvidual.

Dont get mad. Get a clue.

I live at Nine and have watched this go up.. its been much slower on the past 3-4 floors so hopefully once they pass this section they speed up to one floor a week again.

They’ve slowed this construction down a ton, so I’m guessing interest isn’t as strong as they say it is.

They don’t work on the weekends and leave early on Friday.

Look at my previous comment on why they slowed down. You can see the huge metal they have to install. Plus look no one in any industry wants to work late on a Friday or Saturday. PLUS, code enforcment is probably making them leave early on Fridays and Saturdays due to heavy traffic in brickell on the weekends.

Oh – they cant install metal on Saturdays?

You can get a noise waiver and shut down streets here like all the other big boy projects around town. They’ve slowed down a lot. Panorama got a 24/7 construction permit and used all hours of the day and night to work.

That metal is going to be destroyed by the concrete from the upper floors anyway.

No they can install metal on Saturdays. You didn’t fully read my comment. Plus there is a sequence of work that takes place. The city probably doesn’t want them working late on Friday or Saturdays and blocking the road with weekend traffic.
Panorama was built several years ago and what 830 is doing now is loud work (shell, interior framing, buck hoist running, tools etc being so close to hotels and residental you can’t work 24/7.
The metal won’t be destroyed. They have form work and other means to protect it.

The City allows projects to work at all hours — this city is very pro-business and pro-construction, so using the city as an excuse for an issue isn’t it.

Look at all the other projects around town that install stuff at the base before they’re topped off. It gets destroyed.

From the photos it looks like it is structural steel not decorative. However either way once they finish these metal trusses they will be back to one floor a week.

Yea progress has slowed due to the metal installtion. They will back at one floor a week soon.

I seem to recall there being a sky deck planned for the middle of this building, with a bar/restaurant, gym, etc. That might be what the holdup is, which would take longer than regular office floors.

The developer says the market is “beyond anything we’ve ever seen”….geez what a suprise, was expecting him to say they can’t give away the space and what were they thinking building this.

Nice looking building for the Brickell area. But its really not progressing too fast. Seems to be stuck on the 20 something floor.

The collapse of the building in Surfside has a lot to do with the slowdown of building towers every where in the United States of America.

Its because what they are doing is adding huge metal trusses. They have to attach all this metal bolt it down and a lot of inspections. What they are doing now is not simple. Once they are finished with that it will start going back to a floor a week.

Building and they will come is irresponsible. Any smart 🤓 investor will analyze the market. Right now after the collapsed of Chaplin tower, the closure of unsafe buildings, 40 year recertification , there is no TRUST at all…. Are we that naive?
