Photos: Demolition Continues At Baccarat Residences Brickell Site, With Construction Permit Getting Closer

Demolition is continuing at the Baccarat Residences site in Brickell.

Photos from this morning show that a 4-story building at 77 Southeast 5 Street was being demolished today.

Developer Related Group has applied for a construction permit to build a 47-story tower with 506 residential units on the property.

The plans are actively being looked at as recently as this morning by several reviewers in Miami’s Building Department.

Related will also be demolishing another building next door at 444 Brickell Avenue, but there is no demolition permit pending there yet.

The combined site will include three towers with hotel, residential, and office. Residential and hotel units will bear the Baccarat name.

Arquitectonica is the architect.

Actually, you’re also incorrect :). **Related seems serious, hopefully….

Both of you are incorrect with your punctuation suggestions. The proper punctuation mark should be made with a semi-colon (;) and followed by a small-case “h.” It should read“ Related seems serious; hopefully…”

For a building over fifty years old, it aged pretty well. The proposed replacement is already a dated POS.

Hard to argue with Related being the builder, but honestly I’m mostly excited about the river walk expanding…

Wait until the “archeology guy” that sales arrows on eBay get his hands on this site and start claiming “it’s an archeological burial” and we ended up with another dog park, like the Miami Circle that cost taxpayers 24,000,000 $

This project doesn’t do much for me tbh, but at least its moving forward. Infills are good, but on prime real estate along the river I would’ve hoped for better.

Final design still up in the air. Praying for something inspiring architecture wise. It’s waterfront prime property. Not holding my breath tho.

When are we going to see the new designs? It better be iconic, at the level of Aston Martin and Astoria.

The building at 77 SE 5 Street used to be the US Customs regional headquarters back in the 1980’s, later it was used by the US Immigration service. It was a unique building in an area that many years ago was not considered safe. Sorry to see it go only to make room for more condo towers.

If it had been designed in a classical style, it probably wouldn’t be demolished. Brutalist architecture ages poorly.

Anything goes in Miami, including classical prewar architecture that could be incorporated easily into new development. Case in point, the Eastwood/Ursine Mansion in Edgewater. It’s like stuff is only ever preserved to stop development rather than facilitate reasonable redevelopment, whether it be patches of Riverside/Little Havana, or attempts at designating the old Miami Herald Building. It’s outrageous.
