Plans for a 43-story residential tower called Westpine have just been filed in Brickell.
Westpine is planned to top off at 474 feet above ground and include:
- 328 residential units
- approximately 1,155 square feet of ground-floor retail space
- 357 parking spaces
A letter from the developer’s representative states:
Consistent with the County’s vision for developments within the RTZ, the Project creates density in the urban core, incorporates retail space at ground-level to activate the public realm, and includes a pedestrian friendly design with wide, public sidewalks beneath colonnades lining the Project’s SW 2 Avenue and SW 9 Street frontages to enhance pedestrian connectivity within the overall neighborhood.
The 0.7 acre property is currently improved with a 24-unit multifamily building constructed in 1964.
Westpine Brickell LLC is the developer.
Behar Font Partners is the architect.
The proposal was filed with Miami-Dade County Planners for review under their Rapid Transit Zoning Metromover Subzone, rather than being sent to the City of Miami for review under city zoning rules.
A pre-application meeting with county planners was requested on December 9.
