Related Group To Launch Sales For One Brickell In Early 2016

Realted Group is planning to launch sales for One Brickell at the beginning of 2016.

Related President Carlos Rosso told Miami Today that a flag for a 250-room hotel in the first tower is in the final stages of negotiations. The first phase will also include 50,000 square feet of office space in the second tower, along with 30,000 square feet of restaurant space.

Two towers will break ground next year: A 75-story, 811-foot hotel and condo tower, along with a 57-story, 619-foot residential tower. Construction will take two years to complete, during which the Capital Grille restaurant currently on the site will remain open.

Following completion of the first two towers, the Capital Grille building will be demolished to make way for the third, 82-story, 859-foot tower.

An appeal of the project’s approval was filed by the 500 Brickell condo association, but Rosso said that Related is wrapping up an agreement with them.

Nothing New Here!

Bernardo Fort-Brescia and Arquitectonica copy design trends they think will give them notoriaty, which for Miami works well. They have done this since the late 70’s when they copied Rem Koolhaas and brought it to Miami. Koolhaas was Laurina Speers teacher at Columbia and she colaborated with him on a house design for her parents. There is nothing new or original about what Arquitectonica does. They sell new trends to developers who leverage that in markets that need a competitive edge and mask the product as original. Rather than apply the theories of modernist design, they emulate. That is not unusual for most architects. To equate this project to Aqua in Chicago and Studio Gang’s approach is entirely off and an insult to architects that value originality in their pursuit. Click on the link: http://studiogang.net/work/2004/aqua-tower and view the video where Jeanne Gang explains how they came up with their unique design for their specific site. The waving balconies are entierly designed to optimize the users outdoor space with specified view corridors. The balconies also are designed to be disruptive to the high winds of Chicago. One Brickell is a dressed up box. If this was one tower, it would be… Read more »

Acqua is definitely a dressed up rectangular box…the ONE Brickell bldgs. base plans have more angles for sure

… and still no plans for a tunnel… SMH

A tunnel to…?

Marc305

This tunnel – that would have been in front of this project and would have helped the traffic tremendously from Brickell into Downtown.

Interesting! I’ve never seen that; thanks for sharing.

between downtown and brickell, I agree that should be a tunnel area but i think at this point with all the other buildings around it and not being able to close that street down completely for a few years is just too complicated now, we should have done this in the 80s or 90’s

The traffic in the area is already a disaster. Look for it to only get worse with this project. Thanks Related.

Really???

I don’t really see how this is Related’s fault. The area is Zoned for up to 80 stories and 500 units per acre. So the city zones an extremely dense, sellers sell at a rate that makes only extremely dense projects viable, Related (among others) then develops extremely dense projects and people are clearly buying their extremely dense product. But somehow its Related’s fault?

Marc305

I personally do not blame Related or any other Developer. We have a capitalist society that allows anyone with the means to make money, and they are doing just that under the current Zoning laws. I am disappointed at the city and the politicians, the tunnel could have been built in the 60’s or in 90’s when traffic was not so crazy, but it is all about perspective. The same will be said by the next generation 20 years from now, when they wonder why wasn’t this tunnel built in 10’s.

The Brickell are streets are not congested with traffic 24/7, only at certain times of the day you’ll see the streets very congested. Some people need to stop making this sound so overwhelming.

Also, why the hell was this down voted? I asked a question. Some of y’all need to tone down the snark. Please and thanks.

Months ago, rumor was that Mandarin Oriental was going to open a 2nd hotel in Brickell near a mass transit station, does any one remember this?

Great news but is it possible to complete two huge towers in just two years from groundbreaking?

Anonymous

Its possible but hell why not just build all 3 simultaneously in 3 years

Reminds me of Aqua in Chicago. Similar size design and scale. Bigger actually because three towers 🙂

Should remind you. The firm keeps rehashing the same design over and over and that was their first with the wavy balconies.

Should inform you. Aqua was actually Studio Gang. Coincidentally enough, they’re doing a condo tower in the Design District, currently dubbed Sweetbird Residences. Hint: it’s not a box with wavy balconies (and neither is Aqua; that has a bit more going on)

Acqua in Chicago is an 90 story box with balconies…look at the typical plan

rectangular box with a central double loaded corridor ….

Acqua has very shallow balconies by the way…hope this one has deeper ones, will help with shadows and energy conservation…i bet will look better than Acqua…in cold climates like Chicago ita impossible to build deep balconies dow to the transmission of cold weather into the slabs of the units.

tropical high rise architecture needs deeper balconies
