Related’s One Brickell Towers To Begin Construction In 2015, Will Be ‘Tallest On Brickell’

Related Group’s massive One Brickell project will begin construction in 2015.

The developer will build the first two towers simultaneously next year. Both of those towers will be residential, but one of the towers will be condo units and the other will be rentals, according to Miami Today.

A third tower will include a 250-room five-star hotel along with residential units on the upper floors. It will probably be the tallest on Brickell, but a construction schedule will depend on market conditions. Tenants in an existing office building on the site have seven year leases.

“Tallest on Brickell” probably means on Brickell Avenue and since Swire’s 80 floor building is not schedule to start until 2017 I would say this will have “Tallest on Brickell” trademark for limited time.

This coming construction boom will make the last one look like a hiccup. Tunnel road network will have to be built to accomodate new traffic, starting ASAP.

That’s one funny picture, b/c there is no room for capital grill and the tower… one or the other.

XVS is right, the big dig (miami style).

The hotel has a chance of success but I think any residential projects in Brickell that didn’t start construction in 2014 won’t make it until next cycle.

What next cycle? This cycle is only beginning, with the real frenzy some years from now (mortgage purchase applications are still at historical lows, so this cycle is still very young).

LOL, can I have some of the kool aid you are drinking?

Mortgage applications are low because those who need mortgages have no money for a down payment to purchase real estate.

Yeah, thanks, I didn’t know that. Just wait until the government makes sure that downpayments don’t matter anymore (they are busy discussing it right now). That’s what this next bubble will be all about. People’s credit ratings will start to heal en masse in 2016 (7 years after 2009) and the Feds will insure every mortgage with taxpayer’s money, no questions asked. Prices will triple in Miami at a minimum, before this cycle is over (in 2022 or so). The last bubble was popped by $150/barrel oil, and this time it will last longer and will go further, since oil sells now at 1/4th of that price (in 2006 dollars) and China (as well as Gulf Arabs) pull back on construction. Anyway, that’s my prediction, and I am not hiding behind an “anonymous” moniker.
You can have my cool aid, but first you’ve got to get your head out of that sand bar.

Same boring architecture

Not agreeing or disagreeing but can you provide an example of what is a great design in your eyes?

See Sunny Isles

Great design is anything creative, innovating and something we haven’t seen before. A square block is far from that. This type of architecture was avant garde back in the 60’s and 70’s. Besides, Architectonica now only designs balconies….
Where are the finishing touches of cupolas, crowns, corniches of buildings?

I like how the picture shows absolutely no traffic crossing the bridge into downtown. The last time Brickell Ave was that empty was back in the ’80’s!

A monstrosity.

Look at how the units of the two towers look directly into each other. Who would want to live there when your view is 30 feet away from the next tower.

Also, the pool in the middle will get zero sun as all the buildings block it.

For such a prominent site, you’d think they’d have a more inspiring architectural design. It’s so standard.

After all these residential towers come online, just wait for the office building skyscraper boom to begin. With Miami now attracting venture capital firms in increasing numbers, hedge fund operators by the dozens, a long-nurtured tech and biotech industry now finally sprouting and ready to grow like crazy, the “Capitol of Latin America” status getting cemented into a firm reality and the global economy growing exponentially, it will come to pass very soon now.

Ten years from now, downtown Miami (including Brickell) will have a population equal to or exceeding that of the entire city today. Most of those people will be working downtown and the skyline will be almost double what it is now.
