Photos: Construction Progress At 830 Brickell, Designed By Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture

830 Brickell is now nearly topped off.

Photos show that a wall of silver glass is being installed at the office tower. The glass is Low-E and hurricane impact resistant – designed to minimize UV and infrared rays, while also allowing the maximum amount of light through.

The 57-story tower is close to topping off at 724 feet above ground, making it Brickell’s tallest office tower and the second tallest office building in all of Miami.

Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture is designing the tower.

Looks fantastic! Can’t wait to see the kinetic facade installed at the base.

You’re screaming to be a 900ft plus tower I’ll still take 724 but man what if this was a 940 ft or something along those lines

Looking good! I’m curious as to why there’s two floors of mechanical venting? You don’t typically see that on office buildings mid-way up.

The buiding needs the support because the upper floors have more floor space. Look at the photos.

Sure but why not cover it with glass instead of the metallic looking thing?

No, it’s pretty common. Some are just disguised better.

We need more beautiful glass buildings exactly like this in the Downtown CBD core. Brickell is getting all filled up.

Meanwhile, Metromover looks sad as ever… and posters on here seriously think THAT can solve transit issues by connecting to Miami Beach and Wynwood?

If the Metromover gets connected to Miami Beach and Wynwood, you don’t ever have to ride on it.. trust me, a lot of people will.

Nobody will force you to ride it (I use it all the time). Its needs to go to Mid Town and Wynwood mores than the beach. That project is just too expensive.

What do you mean? If anything I’ve started to notice even newer tram cars on those tracks from my view of the BCC station.

What is it supposed to look like? Do you want them to decorate the tracks with flowers?

It’s a piece of transit we’re super lucky to have. I’ve been able to live carless in Brickell for over two years just fine in large part because of the MM, and even though I’m purchasing a car since I have a new job way up in FTL, I know I’ll still be using MM instead of waiting on the valet when I want to move about Downtown/Brickell.

Sometimes it sucks that the elevators at the stations don’t work, or smell like piss when they do (they do get regular cleaning though, I’ve seen several cleaning personnel on a regular basis at stations)… but that’s not unusual for public transit in a city of this size (that also won’t take care of its homeless), and the pros outweigh the cons ultimately. I really don’t understand negativity about the MM.

Thanks for these pics TNM! I’ve been photographing this building for 2 years and my photos aren’t nearly as good as these. And thanks for all the great info too. JD

Does anyone know if the huge concrete wall facing West will be covered with glass or some material? Render shows like a beige wall, so not sure. If they leave the concrete exposed, I’m sure those living at SLS Lux, Brickell Heights East and a new tower where Burger King is that face East side will really hate 830 Brickell.

Stunning, We need more. They should light it up at night. This way it works with the other 3 or 4 buildings that are lit up. Must do this and then we have a bit of a skyline. Powerful Images of a city create interest in the city
