Photos: Metallic Mesh Cladding Installed At Brickell Flatiron’s Garage

This is a first look at the cladding on the garage at Brickell Flatiron, which contractors installed for the first time last week.

The cladding appears to be a metallic mesh screen that will cover portions of the parking garage. Some of the garage will also be shielded by residential units, with the tower’s lower levels include a mix of both parking and residential usage.

Brickell Flatiron poured the 56th floor earlier this month, and is rising at a pace of one floor per week. Top off of the 64-story tower is scheduled before the end of 2018 at 734 feet above ground.

Sales have been strong, with 85% of units now sold. Last month, Polaris Industries executive Jacob Vogel purchased a penthouse for $13.2 million.

There are. But a ramp to the second floor it would have been better.

I don’t mind garages…Lord knows we need them in Miami. But if there was a way to have the ramps go from ground to a high 2nd level or a 3rd level so that there’s room down at the ground level for retail, it would certainly add to the appeal.

That’s what they did with this building. The garage doesn’t start until level 3.

Real cities don’t have their streets lined with parking garages.

Agreed. It could have been better, at least some restaurants on ground level.

Sorry Pollyanna, but people aren’t giving up their cars.

No one is saying to give up cars. just leave the ground floor for retail/commercial. That can only help business and walkability in the area.

It seems to be in your opinion, a lot of people would walk to this building if it included more retail/commercial space instead of walking right across the street to Mary Brickell Village or hopping on the Metromover and going to BCC. This building includes enough, it doesn’t need anything more.
