Photos From The 1 Southside Park Construction Site In Brickell, Where Miami’s Biggest Ever Apartment Project Is Being Built

The 1 Southside Park project is set to become the biggest ever apartment rental project in downtown Miami and Brickell’s history – here’s a look where it stands today.

Demolition of an older building on the site has been completed and the site is now cleared.

Equipment from foundation construction company Keller is now on the site.

A sign at the front of the site shows that Plaza Construction will be the general contractor, matching permit documents.

Another sign at the front of the site advertises a potential brownfield designation, allowing access to public funding for cleanup. The developers were granted that designation at a recent meeting.

The 64-story tower will include 1,175 rental apartments, more than any other ever built in a single project in downtown Miami’s history.

There will also be a a 200-key Treehouse hotel, 190,000 square feet of office, and retail.

Shop Architects is designing the project.

You probably could afford one of Melo’ apartments but I seriously doubt you’ll be able to afford an apartment in one of these buildings.

But it looks like five Melo buildings stuck together, individually ugly, but gets a pass combined and improving an adjacent park.

You mean “No one is hated more than he who speaks the truth” true, people can’t seem to accept this city’s remarkably shitty architecture and build quality; have to compare it to low income housing projects built in 1970s Brooklyn

I’ve seen people come on this site and knock every building’s design in Brickell. Architectural beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

The project requires the land currently occupied by Miami Fire Station #4.
The station is still operational.

It will most likely continue to be operational until they set up a temporary one in another part of the property. Possibly, somewhere in the park.

They got the land for very little, 5 times less than market price, great for Stern so he can do a world class rental

Love the idea. It won’t happen. Or if it does, it won’t look like that and the park will stay a patch of muddy grass.

They killed and try to evict a woman next-door

What exactly does evicting a squatter (who never even lived in the subject premises and who opened fire on the officers) have to do with this project?

You conveniently left out that she fired first, without warning through the door at the officers who announced loudly and clear why they were there.

Please share with us your address so that we can live with you rent free. Don’t you dare try to get us out once we are in though! Can’t wait to be roommates with you!!

Man, god forbid anyone has to assume the consequences of their actions.

doubt that.
Other than evicting a person for staying on property that they are NOT paying rent nor own…
Who wouldn’t go through legal process to get them off your property.
i’m sure you would do exactly the same if you had a rental that someone wasn’t paying and you were losing money every day.

She simply got what she deserved. Hopefully, she won’t have to pay rent in hell.
