Related Group ‘Would Love To Do A Cesar Pelli And Rem Koolhaas Project’ In Brickell

Brickell waterfront property is being eyed by Related Group for a project designed by either Cesar Pelli or Rem Koolhaas, according to a new interview with a company vice president.

Jon Paul Perez, son of company founder Jorge Perez, told Mansion Global in an interview that waterfront areas in Brickell, Miami Beach, Sunny Isles, and Coconut Grove are those that can command the premiums necessary to develop a starchitect-designed project.

Perez said that the best bets for the developer would be waterfront properties and those in Miami’s urban core, catering to buyers who don’t want to commute. Land in both of those categories is scarce, he said.

The company is currently developing several apartment buildings in Wynwood, but hasn’t launched a new condo project in Miami’s urban core for years due to poor economic conditions in Latin America.

Related does own the waterfront One Brickell property at 444 Brickell property, where an Arquitectonica-designed project with three towers was proposed by the developer in 2014 but never built.

Doesn’t matter. They are paying for the name only. It’s just a marketing gimmick. #Vain #Miami

HDM could design a beautiful crown jewel of the city, but dear god, hopefully Related’s finger prints are nowhere near it.

Brickell needs a park, trees, bike paths, cleaner street ( they are dirty and smelling bad now days) also related construction is very cheap and overpriced. We need to do brickell more enjoyable to walk , Mary Brickell village is horrible we can do a type of Bal harbor shops with water fountains , bridges, wood and lot if green …….

How about just getting rid of parking lots and making it more pedestrian. We are getting the Underline. Trees for sure.
Another supermarket other than Publix please, please please.

Maria, you don’t like the 9 acre Simpson Park?
Alice Wainwright Park on the waterfront on Brickell Ave which is even bigger than 9 acres, Mary Brickell park, the underline, the Miami River greenway, the baywalk, or the public path around Brickell Key?

I enjoy ALL of those places. Additionally, Brickell Citi Center (curated by the same people who did Bal Harbour Shops) is enjoyable in my opinion. It was great to see all the kids trick-or-treating there the other night. My son loves all the coy fish ponds and the holiday decorations.

SE 25th Road (where UNA Residences will soon be built) is a great location for buying out the old condos and revamping the entire block.

This section of south Brickell should be redeveloped and lined with starchitect masterpieces.

Please let it be the Four Ambassadors haha. Also, the land next to Jade is open, where they have the double 1,000ft towers planned.

What’s wrong with Four Ambassadors? Of course, it’s not tall and is outdated inside but the apartment prices are good for people who can’t afford to spend 1M on a new condo. Same with Brickell Bay Dr apts old outdated but reasonable for a normal working-class family who wants to live in the urban core.

If Brickell Bay Drive is working class, I must live on Park Avenue.

That’s 750+ individual owners. It would be an expensive and nearly impossible buyout. Condo buyouts that have happened have been in boutique buildings with less than 100 owners.

Buyout of Brickell Harbour Condominium almost happened a while back. this would be a logical location.

The problem with related is that they suck. Period. Always bait and switch on their projects. They paint a beautiful picture, sell, and then start removing amenities and “costly design elements and then blame it on permits and building code limitations. Pathetic. Buyer beware
