Photos: Tents At Baccarat Brickell Property, With Site Work Permit Now Being Processed

Photos show activity this week at the site of Baccarat Residences in Brickell, which is planned to become one of the tallest towers in Miami.

Yesterday (August 30), contractor John Moriarty formally filed plans with Miami’s Building Department for a site and soil improvements construction permit. That permit is now in review.

There are a total of three towers planned at the complex: Tower I (Baccarat Residences) at 848 feet, Tower II (apartments) at 550 feet, and Tower III (hotel and residential) at 897 feet.

Demolition began in February 2021 to make way for the first two towers, with construction permitting now underway on them.

In July 2021, it was revealed that prehistoric remains were found at the site, requiring archaeological excavation.

They have cleaned up the Wharf quite a bit. They placed large fences along the parking lots under the expressway so not much room for them. There is enough shelter space, no reason for them to be on streets. It’s sad the addiction and mental illness keeps a lot of them an endless cycle of living on streets

Looks like archeological dig tents. See the grates for sifting material. Thats one big dig.

South Florida always hires the best of the best, especially when it comes to archeologists.

This will be an incredible project and the Baccarat will compete with Aston Martin aesthetically I believe. I’m not a a related fan overall, but they will get at least that one right I’m hoping…

The interior lobby, maybe. All three of these towers combined can’t even architecturally compete with one story of Aston Martin Residences.

They were asked to use the tents so now condo resident could film the findings. Smells Miami sketchy

10,000 years from now, archaeologists will be digging up those tents. The cycle continues.

The tents are gone, only the eskeletons of the tents remain.

Of all the things wrong with this project, the parking garage is the least of what looks awful.

Wasn’t one going to be a supertall? They made them shorter and no one noticed. Hope the “prehistoric” fish bones don’t delay them any longer.

No, just three rehashed crappy Arquitectonica boxes with zig-zag balconies, on some of the city’s most valuable real estate.
