Renderings Show West Brickell’s Future, Including Thousands Of New Residential Units

New renderings show the extent of the transformation that West Brickell will experience over the next five years.

Developers are planning at least 3,120 condos, 1,450 hotel rooms, and 390,000 square feet of commercial space in a total of 11 projects slated for completion by 2024.

Data and renderings were provided by Habitat Group, which is developing several projects in the area.

Habitat’s upcoming West Brickell projects include:

  • Smart Brickell – set to break ground imminently, it will include three towers: Tower 1, a residential condo tower with 100 units; Tower 2, a 100-room hotel and condo tower; and Tower 3, with 97 residential units. The project will also include approximately 12,000 square feet of commercial space that will be used for a café, restaurant and retail.
  • Brickell Lux will include 108 residences, 60 hotel rooms and retail space.
  • Millux Hotels – two hotels will be built with a total of 114 rooma. Each hotel will have an independent rooftop bar, lounge and pool deck.

Other area projects will include Chetrit Group’s River Walk, and The Gallery at West Brickell, proposed by Related Group to include affordable, workforce and market rate housing.

This area deserves it’s own metro mover extension to really connect it to the rest of Brickell.

not really. It’s just a few blocks from the metro rail.

The metromover and metrorail are two different modes.

Really???

The metrorail and metrover are literally at the same location.

Well I guess you explained why they’re not different modes to get around in Brickell.

West brickell is ripe for a metromover line along say 2nd ave. Its a long walk in summer heat to get to existing metro route, and metro rail isn’t really effective for local commute

They’re plenty of places in the world with higher density than west brickell with a train line on every street. There is a station three blocks away, learn to walk.

Lets work on a metro mover to wynwood/midtown before we talk about expanding Brickell’s…sounds good?

No, Coastal Link can take care of it. Let’s work on that, and maybe we can talk about Metrorail to Doral and Miami Beach.

how about Doral stops trying to expand since no metro rail will EVER go there.

NO, Little Havana needs a Metromover first.

little havana getting metro mover would be great, it’s a dense neighborhood with a lot of potential, but i don’t think it’s likely to happen. east of i95 extensions are way more likely

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Why don’t they combine Metrorail and the Metromover?

The Chetrit Group has been sitting on their piece of property and not doing anything with it for too long. Their project is one of the key pieces to transform the river front but for the life of me I don’t what’s been taking them so long to get started.

Seems like they’re looking to target the high-end luxury market, but there’s only so many people willing and able to buy 500K studios besides the dollar strengthening and rates climbing. Eventually they will build there and the area will transform, but I cannot see it happening for another 5+ years unfortunately…

It’s funny how every project in West Brickell desperately needs to include ‘Brickell’ in its name to show off it’s part of the vibeeee

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Why don’t ya’ll just call it Brickell?

Brickell was always called Brickell from its own separate plat, while West Brickell used to be called “Southside” based on the areas south of the Miami River curve on the original Knowlton city plat.

It is called Brickell.. it’s just West Brickell like you have a South Beach.

Needs a people mover somewhere through there

There is not one spot on that West Brickell map where you are more than 5 blocks from a Metromover Station.
95.45% of the density is within 3 blocks.

West Brickell does not NEED a people mover….unless you are referring to People’s feet as people movers.

That’s what Bird, Lime and Freebee are for… you don’t need a MM stop at everyone’s doorstep.

Actually agree with this. Brickell area (especially west brickell) has so much unbuilt potential/low lying buildings that it doesn’t make sense to push west into little havana (which should redevelop along different lines)

I disagree. West B should continue to get built out, but far more affordable housing can be build in East LH also for poor people that work the downtown hotels and bars, and whiney youngsters that complain about high rents but insist on living “close to it all”.

East LH is a prime spot for microunits.

Yeah, lets just keep stifling any and all improvements on the other side of 95.

Brickell needs a public brothel rather than all these private underground ones in all the high rises

If anything, West Brickell and Edgewater should be a lesson destroying walkable neighborhoods full of historic buildings and character that just needs some TLC, for vacant lots and giant boxes devoid of crowns, spires, or any ornamentation, isn’t always better. We need solid infill redevelopment for Little Havana/Riverside, replacing the bad buildings and maybe some good ones with better ones, which Miami21 was supposed to do until it became a waiver-fest.

The problem with Miami21 is that it’s flawed. It’s the idea of one person who tried hard cater to nimbys. He and they who thought their idea of what a city should look like and be is just too limited and restrictive. Miami21’s design perspective would work well for a small town, but when you try to implement it for a large, growing, constantly evolving and supposedly global city, it just can’t be the panacea that some people think it should and want it to be. That’s why we see all these zoning changes and amendments. As far as “walkable neighborhoods full of historic buildings” are concerned, a lot of people who owned those supposedly historic buildings either vacated and left them empty and dilapidated, or sold them because the cost of improving and maintaining them just wasn’t worth it in their opinion. And face it, not that many people really want to walk around in hot and humid weather in Miami. That’s the Capitalist system we live under no matter how frustrated it makes you.

#1. Miami 21 is awful.
#2. Brickell is dense and very walkable. True…summertime in a black suit is a drag if you walk more than 3 blocks, but wintertime in a black suit is a drag if you have walk in most northern cities.

OVERALL MIAMI NEEDS AN EFFICIENT METRO SYSTEM, BUILDINGS AND BUSSINESSES CONTINUE TO GROW WHILE THE TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM REMAINS A WASTE OF MONEY AND TIME FOR THE PEOPLE, IF YOU THINK OTHERWISE YOU ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM

Not true my FRIEND. The Metromover, Metrorail, and trolley system all work efficiently in Brickell.
