Photos: One Key Piece Is Missing From The Riverwalk In Brickell, But That Soon May Change

A food and entertainment hub is about to open on the river in Brickell and it could help to activate the riverwalk in Brickell.

Riverside Brickell is building a complex of eateries with a riverwalk in the back of its property, as the photos below shows.

Soon a full riverwalk could extend from Riverside to the Brickell Key bridge.  Only Related Group’s 444 Brickell office property is blocking, but the developer has said it could be redeveloped soon (any new construction would include a riverwalk).

 

 

The riverwalk is blocked at Related’s 444 Brickell:

The area behind 444 Brickell includes driveway and a parking garage:

Behind Brickell on the river, a riverwalk has already been built and is open to the public. It will soon connect to a new section at Riverside:

The new riverwalk is under construction next door at Riverside:

Wtf there’s literally 100% the correct space already open and walkable right there, they put up a chain link fence to stop people. Why not just chain link your crap parking area

Agree, it would be great if they can operate their building, and allow for Baywalk, with the understanding that they will close it again temporarily when they redevelop the site.

Obviously we all want the river walk to be extended but the fact that you feel entitled to private property is a joke. Be grateful related has the intention of extended the river walk.

They have the ‘intention’ when it benefits them, like in Edgewater (minus them taking half the park that was promised, to put up the private Amara restaurant, which is now for sale for $20,000,000)…

They purchased the property so of course they can do whatever they want with it. I’m sure Perez bought this so that he could build what you guys want lol.

Apparently you’ve never heard of a “zoning code”….. They cannot do whatever they want. If they redevelop they are REQUIRED to put in the baywalk.

“IF” they redevelop meaning they don’t have to do shit if they don’t want. So yes, they can do whatever they want.

A city with half a brain would have made addition/completion of the Riverwalk mandatory once a property changed hands instead of making everyone wait for when it’s redeveloped to its highest and best use.

Get educated. Private property rights cannot be seized by govt except in very extreme circumstances.
Google “Florida Burt Harris Act”

Related could have made the best baywalk in Edgewater, but it wouldn’t compensate from destroying any walkability along the streets lined with parking garages and driveway loops for their vertical suburbs.

Amara seems a joke. Typical it’s up for sale already.

Wow. I was at Amara for a holiday party recently, the food was amazing, the service was amazing, the venue is amazing.
The business is not for sale. The real estate is for sale. If you need more education on this matter, Naive Miami 72, ask a commercial real estate expert.

It was a suggestion, you are a joke for thinking they have the intention, it’s a requirement when they redevelop.

Not true. Only if a property owner requests a variance and if you are redeveloping for HABU, you will ask for a variance, you are required to honor a 50ft setback.
If you sell your private property on the river to another person, and that second person want to redevelop AS OF RIGHT, they do not need any variance, or any need to honer the 50 ft setback.

People…no one expects that everyone reading on this website have real estate knowledge to understand these things. But if you do not have knowledge, just read and don’t post.

Why don’t you buy the property and open the walk for public.

Or maybe he should round up his liberal friends, and march over to Related’s HQ and demand they open the walk for the public.

Repeating same comment does not changes the fact. It is a private property and the owner has every right to do what is best for him.

No one said he didn’t, its just a simple suggestion, that if Carlos is so public about supporting Baywalk, if they are able, maybe they should put it here as well.

Related has tons of projects in the pipeline. They obviously have their reasons for not flooding the Brickell Submarket with another 1200 units.

Spot on. Same thing is guaranteed to happen to the Underline.

No one in Brickell picks up after their dogs. It’s disgusting.

January 15th Article in the Biscayne Times: “Carlos Rosso, president of the condominium division for Related, spoke to the BT about Related’s role as “instigators of the idea.” He describes the company’s goal as pushing to create public consciousness around the idea that Miami needs to reimagine itself, and part of that reimagining involves becoming a great waterfront city like Vancouver or Rio de Janeiro.”

Perhaps Carlos can ask to get this small portion of the Baywalk temporarily connected? I fully understand his push for a Baywalk while they were heavily building in Edgewater, but if they can operate 444, while also having a Baywalk back there, that sure would be a good example to set before he asks for the city for concessions on his next project.

I’m confused. As a native, can one walk a few blocks in Edgewater along the bay! I thought it was 3 blocks long or so only….. maybe I have not visited in last 2 years? When in NYC, I can run 12 + miles waterside without interruption.

The big picture – Riverwalk from 36th all the way down to Brickell, connecting the whole area, will likely never happen imo. I think we are being sold a lie on that one, by our commissioners. Prove me wrong! I’m a bit disheartened by the lack of competition in that last race – no one properly called Russell out on this lip service about riverwalk. Too many developers are in the way who hold cards, since the city sold its soul to them. Its a great example of urban planning failure you don’t see elsewhere. If you look at other major cities, they did the right thing first by allocating waterfront space for parks and public walkways. Take Chicago for example with its River Drive and huge parks around the museums. Its untrue to say this property is too valuable and has to be sold out to build condos – city would have been fine thinking about what would benefit the public at the same time.

Miami is not Chicago so cut it out with the comparisons. Chicago is built on the shores of a river. Miami is built on the shores of an ocean. You say Chicago has huge parks around their museums?.. Miami has miles and miles of beaches near theirs. MiamiDade County doesn’t have to place emphases on parks like Chicago. Wanna get away?.. you can go right across one of the bridges to places like Miami Beach, Adventura, Sunny Isles Beach, and Hallandale Beach to name a few and you’re in a different world. Travel west from the city of Miami and soon you’re in another world – a gigantic national park called the “Everglades.” I just pointed out east to west. I haven’t pointed out what you’ll find if you go north and south in the county.

So please, stop talking as if some lack of a river walk or bay walk is very detrimental to the fabric of Miami. Right now, the city has more bigger fish to fry… like improving on it’s mass transit system.
