Photos: Digging Underway At Brickell Site Where Three Towers Rising Up To 80 Stories Planned

Digging is already underway at the Brickell site which was approved for a three-tower project by Miami’s Urban Development Review Board last week.

There doesn’t appear to be any construction permit either active or pending for the site however, so the activity is likely exploratory.

Developer Mast Capital appears to be moving quickly on the project. Three towers will rise at the same time, an attorney for the developer said last week.

In addition, the developer instructed architects to design the project without requiring any exceptions from the Miami 21 Zoning code, likely making the approval process much faster.

The UDRB voted unanimously last week to recommend Miami’s Planning Department approve the project.

Three towers will rise 80, 59 and 50 stories, with a total of 1,255 residential units. The tallest tower will have condos, with the two other towers being built as rental apartments.

Mast has said they expect to begin construction by late 2022. Financing is already in place.

From proposal to a given start date in the same year. this is how things are done. I’m sure those two story buildings in the background are going to be bought out soon.

It will block views of that hideous mural from Simpson Park, too. Hopefully it will look great as a bookend for the non-bayfront high-rise area of Brickell.

Exactly! This area is very underdeveloped and is ripe for the picking! Sorry NIMBYs in The Roads.

It’s just another block. SW 15th Road works as a line of demarcation.

Love the movement and planning of this project. Approvals should be swift and this will be a great addition to Brickell. All three towers at once! That’s how it’s done!

Too bad that is all fill dirt that they’re digging in. They might find a coke bottle. Hope it doesn’t delay things.

I love the freedom by young render types erasing existing buildings to make the focus. So false.

I rather have an empty lot and continue to wait for better looking towers. Everyone wants a piece of miami now, so why not be more demanding in what architects and developers bring to our city?

Because you would rather “have an empty lot and continue to wait for better looking towers” and they have plenty of money and own the lot so unlike you, they don’t have to wait.

Hope that answered your question.

They’re seeing how much water will come out when digging. Miami is all swamp.

Take a walk a mile and a half down to Alice Wainwright park and get back to us on whether Miami is all “swamp”.

Gee.. I wonder why the city isn’t called “East Everglades National Park” then?

Actually, where Brickell is it used to be a pine rockland forest, like in the park right next to the site, not a swamp.

According to scientific geniuses on here, everything was a swamp until Cubans came, and we’re all going to die in X years from sea level rise for not taking Metromover everywhere.
