Revealed: 50-Story 830 Brickell Office Tower, Where Construction Is Already Underway

This is the first public look at a 50-story office tower known as 830 Brickell that is being built across from Brickell City Centre.

The tower is proposed to top off at 732 feet above ground. It will include 490,200 square feet of office, 583 parking spaces, along with commercial and retail space.

Russian developer OKO Group began building the foundation for the tower in January. WeWork signed a lease to occupy 10 floors the following month.

Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture created the design concept for the tower and is also overseeing interior design. Revuelta is the architect of record, with Enea overseeing landscape.

An indoor and outdoor restaurant will be be located at the top, on level 53.

In a letter to the city, the developer describes the project:

The mixed-use project infills the last remaining parcel on the urban corner of 8th Street and Brickell Plaza Drive (SE 1st Avenue). Primarily an office building, the project has activated frontages on both streets with lobby and retail focused to the corner. An artistic facade of perforated panels creates a kinetic aesthetic on the parking facade. The tower distinguishes itself from the pedestal with a curtain wall facade of silver glass on the main facades and a copper toned frit adjacent to the major architectural feature. These feature elements create a dramatic cantilever on the west facade and frame the building vertically before turning horizontal and creating an outdoor room for the restaurant on the 53rd level.

The Project’s has been designed to prioritize pedestrian interests along the ground floor. The Project’s landscape and hardscape has been designed by Enea Garden Design and provides an inviting public sidewalk which is activated by ground floor commercial uses. Additionally, the proposed podium contains a fully landscaped terrace which will provide an active open space for the building’s tenants and guests.

A hearing by Miami’s Urban Development Review Board is scheduled for June 19.

 

Update: The name of the development is 830 Brickell.

Finally an office tower and y’all still bitchin? I think y’all need to be architects an design your own buildings! It’s a nice building very sleek an high-tech looking… It’s a nice addition to the skyline of nothing but white stucco condo’s… At least be happy its a glass office tower for goodness sakes!

Are you kidding, didn’t you know?.. most of the people who come on this site are top notch experts in the architectural and design fields!

Anonymous

I’d actually think people on this site have an opinion bc they have some knowledge of development, design, etc. Maybe not an academic or professional background, but a passion still provides knowledge

Nah…they just love to hate.

The building immediately accross the street isnt white stucco.
The building immediately to west is not white stucco.
This is a great office building in a great neighborhood.

Ughh, couldn’t agree more. Miami’s Urban Design and Review Board almost ruined the aesthetic of this city!

I hear they are hiring. Go apply and change the way they work.

Doesn’t quite work that way; you have to be elected.

YASSS!!

I wonder if Ken Russell will be against this due to “noise”

Most accurate comment ever posted to TNM. Well done.

Can’t wait for him to approve Melreese despite being head of the DDA/the Overtown site being much more lucrative for the DDA. He’s just as slimy as every Miami politician, just uses his lame surfer story to get away with everything.

Great! Not another luxury (half-empty) condo tower!

Look, if you’re not risking any of your money, why do you care if it’s “another luxury (half-empty) condo tower?”

Ummm. But they aren’t half empty, or half full.
This area orf Miami is VERY active. Because I have lived there since it opened, I promise you that SLSLux is damned full.

And what is wrong about another condo? Isn’t the idea about creating density?

You should be glad that rich people chose Miami. They could easily have gone to Ft. Lauderdale or Palm Beach. Be careful what you wish for.

I’l bet the SLSLUX owners are better off looking at an Adrian Smith building than you are no matter where you are.
(It’s a safe bet…usually people who publically wish ill on other people are not smart. Not smart people rarely can afford to live next door to a 53 story restaurant.)

its ok sometimes you don’t have views because you are the view.

SLS LUX east views…

This tower is sleek but kind of weird looking. Maybe it will look better once is build. This tower will also be 100 FT shorter than Panorama Tower.

BORING Architecture

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

What more do you want? Does it have to be shaped like a guitar to not be boring? It’s fine. Relax.

If a guitar shaped building resembles creativity for you, you really need to either move to Nashville or go back to school.

And shorter than SLSLux

Wasn’t this supposed to rise to 834 feet?

East views of most of SLS Lux are now screwed.

prices should come down now.

If views are important you should never buy any condo unless you are direct bayfront with no possibility of obstructions. Anything else will get blocked eventually.

Anonymous

I’d rather live in an area with a lot of action than somewhere with just bayfront views and little to nothing to go to and do.

Judging from water view prices vs no water view, not many with $$$ agree with you.

Anonymous

That only means that we’ll start seeing a bigger shift when more non water view areas become more vibrant and happening.

Brickell prices are WAY higher than Edgewater prices, and direct ocean Hallandale views.
Soooooo…..you are absolutely wrong.

Good answer.
And to that, I may add, it actually makes you look sideways.

It’s OK
SLS Lux is sold out

Cool building, not sure about the street-level experience though. Either way, good to see office space

Anon

This building is going to overtake the sidewalks, just like SLS Lux did. Developers will always take, so it’s not their fault, but the city allowing SLS to be that narrow is a shame.

Anonymous

really I think that most of the sidewalks in Brickell should be widened

Really?
What for?

Ok Marty, take the De Lorean back to 2019. I believe you might still be in 1985, thinks have changed a lot in the last 34 years…. Idiot!

Anon

yes, true, but this was a brand new building. This was just built, and should have been required to widen it there. While some of the sidewalks fronting existing buildings should be wider, it’s a difficult process to widen at this point. In the planning process of new buildings, it’s a seamless process.

Anonymous

You do not know what you are posting about.
The sidewalks at SLS Lux have a Botero Sculpture, a world renown Japanese restaurant with sidewalk seating, and only 2 cuts.
SlS Lux has a motor court.
Think about it.
Walk it.
This is the highest density two square blocks in Florida.
It is fantastic. I love living there, and know what I’m posting about.

Anon

i walk by there at least 2 times a day.

your three points (sculpture, motor court, world renown restaurant) have nothing to do with the width of the sidewalk. along S. Miami Ave north of the sculpture and south of the retail, two people on the sidewalk can’t comfortably walk by shoulder to shoulder. it’s the same situation along SW 8th St in front of Katsuya, it’s the same situation, but made worse because of the valet stand on the sidewalk.

why do you think everyone is standing in front of burger king to cross to BCC and not in front of the nice Botero sculpture? that development did nothing to promote walkability. I remain optimistic that ASGG will activate the sidewalks and frontage.

by the way, you seem like the dictionary definition of someone who would live at the SLS.

Anonymous

So the chairs and table that they call sidewalk dining dont count as the sidewalk?

“you seem like the dictionary definition of someone who would live at the SLS”

You have a very strange dictionary.

Yes it does streetwalker.
Serious people understand that developers are required to have expansive sidewalks in the high density neighborhoods.
Serious developers have complied.
Non-serious (dopes) walk in bewilderment in front of the side walk cafes.
Thoughtful people are spending money on the half of a sidewalk that you don’t notice.
Whilst you walk by “two times a day”, and you find it hard to walk, there is hope for you.
My son is less than 2 years old…he has never had trouble sidewalks.

Walking down a sidewalk should not be difficult.

Anon

next time i walk my dogs and i see your two year old son coming, instead of waiting politely for you and your family to pass the narrow sidewalks, i’ll proceed at the same time and knock you into the bushes in front of your son.

the tables and chairs is on private property and not “sidewalk.” i’m referring to the city owned Right of Way, not the private property/cafe. as someone utilizing the sidewalk, i would not be allowed to walk through Katsuya tables and chairs on a consistent basis.

as you state these are the two densest blocks in florida, the standard sidewalk width of 5′ (which is what is present around SLS) is not enough.

Oh oh, here comes the “sidewalk bashers.”

Little short on something,as previously mentioned was supposed to be 800 + feet, now run of the mill 700 + “,disappointing.

Anonymous

Respectfully, a 700 + ft office tower in Miami is downright amazing and you we all should be ecstatic.

Anonymous

Not trying to complain but aside from this being 100ft shorter than originally reported, wasn’t it not supposed to be another flat roofed tower? Sure it’s an office tower and sure it’s not white stucco but for the architect’s portfolio not much about the design is that exciting for all the hype

Anonymous

Everyone anticipated for a sleek cool design. We waited and waited and all we got was 100 ft less and another square design

Anonymous

Exactly, besides being glass (which I think is great) it’s not adding much unique definition to the skyline i.e square roof, I feel like it’ll just kind of blend because it’s the same height as flatiron and only slightly taller than SLS Lux, but I’ll wait to see it built I guess

What hype?
There has been zero hype.

Looks amazing the in the first image, second… not so much. The parking podium is decent, for a parking podium at least. Sorry, but wealthy businessmen aren’t going to take the Metromover.

I like the wavy glass design that is between the parking and the rest of the tower, would have been interesting if they had continued that more in the design.

Anonymous

Can’t wait for traffic to increase with the 583 parking spaces… and for the bridge to go up, during rush hour… Can’t wait to see what the defender of this building will say about traffic.. “this building will cater to the people that live around the area” good luck! Finding people that can afford to live around the area that are willing to rent space at WeWork, “WeWork” by definition is shared space that helps startup companies to develop by providing office space… The people that work in these start ups have plenty of money to live on Brickell Avenue… It is not about making money, it’s about spending it… right defender?

Sgt. Sapingo

When it’s finished, do you think they’ll re-open that sketchy 24-hour latin diner that used to be on the build site and also served sushi? I miss that place.

weird looking, semi-communist style…uhmm, might look good…is a tall, slender after all

Um, communists built glass boxes for big businesses? LOL, it’s the polar opposite. Lever House and Seagram Building versus Stalin’s Seven Sisters. By the time communists started copying Western modernist architecture in the late 1970s and 80s, we were swinging back to Neotraditional.
