Photos: Foundation Work Underway At 1 Southside Park

Contractors are now building the foundation for the 1 Southside Park tower in Brickell, new photos show.

County records show that a permit under the soil improvement category has been active since March for the property. It was issued to foundation contractor Keller.

Earlier this year, developer JDS obtained $43 million in financing to acquire the property and begin construction.

In February, the developer demolished an older apartment building on the site.

1 Southside Park will include:

  • 1,175 residential rental units
  • 190,000 square feet of office space
  • 200-key Treehouse hotel by Barry Sternlicht’s SH Group
  • 10,000 square feet of retail space
  • 1,400 parking spaces
  • A new fire station

The 64-story project will top off at 773 feet above ground, with two interconnected towers.

The adjacent Southside Park is also being rebuilt as part of the project.

Brooklyn’s Shop Architects is designing the tower, with ODP Architecture & Design the Architect of Record. Landscape architecture by James Corner Field Operations.

 

Additional equipment arrived at the site yesterday after the below photographs were taken:

It really is different looking. I love it.

Somebody in a previous article on this building tried to rip it by saying it’s nothing but a bunch of boring, featureless 12-story buildings stacked on top of each other. Hahahaha! That was one of the more creative ways I’ve seen on this site to throw out some BS criticism.

Yeah, you see that all the time right? Stacking a bunch of boring 12-story buildings on top of each other at different angles is SO played out. If only I had a dollar for every building like that I’ve seen in Miami….

I’D HAVE ZERO FREAKIN’ DOLLARS, until this one gets built.

Excellent observation. The people of Miami have been waiting since 1896 for the first New Yorker to transplant here.

Voila!

The basketball court should be a triple purpose with tennis and pickleball ability to utilize such a small space better.

Get rid of your car and driveway to your home or your parents home, because it contributes to traffic.
