Revealed: 78-Story Project To Replace Burger King In Brickell

The Owner of a strip mall across from Brickell City Centre has submitted plans to replace it with a project simply called “18”.

City Center Properties, LLC is proposing a 78-story tower, topping off at 950 feet above ground.

There will be four levels of retail on the lower floors, totaling 66,618 square feet. The upper levels will be residential, with 392 units.

The .78 acre project site at 10 SW 8th Street is surrounded by active construction projects on all four sides, including Brickell Heights, SLS Lux, Solitair, and Brickell City Centre.

NBWW is the architect. The project will be reviewed by Miami’s Urban Development Review Board next week.

This tower should have been called “The Whopper”.

I have mixed feelings about this project. On the one hand the proximity between the current twin towers and this building is beyond close. To the point that if you live on the 50th floor and under you just might be able to shake hands with your neighbor, but hey I guess that was to be expected. On the other had I find the design to be beautiful, it has a little more flare than most other buildings in Brickell and I think it will make a nice addition to our skyline. Being in Real Estate I can tell all the nay sayers on this site that this project has more of a chance of being built than not. The demand for anything close to Brickell City Centre remains strong and developers are acutely aware of this.

I had my hopes that this was going to be an office tower…kind of bored of only condo construction

Really? This isn’t even a veiled attempt to just show a massing with pretty renders to upsell the property showcasing its potential zoning.

I’m sure this will never get built. The developer will likely use this just to flip the property.

What a beauty !
Please build that to make Miami great again !

As long as they find a place for La Sandwicherie they can put anything there.

I would have never guessed it was a Nichols’ design…not sure if i love but i applaud them for doing something different

Awesome! This is looking even more dense than NYC! For all the people who wanted this to be an office tower that would of meant this building would be empty after 5 pm on weekdays and completely empty on weekends! I had a friend who came to visit from Manhattan and even he wasn’t used to this kind of density and vibrancy that we have in Brickell! he said NYC looked like the suburbs compared to Brickell!

I had the same expirience with a friend from chicago. he said they had density and vibrancy but nothing even close to this.

I used to live in NYC and I wouldn’t exactly say Brickell is more dense or urban than NYC they’re probably about the same level.

Nice

the density in brickell is getting to be off the charts.

This surely will make Brickell Heights and SLS Lux look like the piece of crap they truly are.

Brickell Heights and SLS Lux are really a horrible addition to the neighborhood. Cheap buildings in premiere locations.

why NBWW? doesn’t Arquitectonica have the exclusive rights for Miami arquitectural design? At least thats what I thought?

love the tower but hate the pedestal…they seem disjointed. i would prefer the pedestal to look more like the tower or at least to use the same language.

Danny Costa

I agree. It takes away from the tower looking pushed back on the pedestal

I usually hate pedestals on principal, but at least this one looks like it actually has some actual activity going on as opposed to the large empty walls that plague so many other buildings. It’s more inviting at the street level than a lot of other examples we’ve seen go up in the past.

The designated retail space is generous in size, I love to see a continuation of retail more in the style of BCC so we truly develop a retail area

lots of issues
Garage cant open to S Miami Ave, certain to ruin the pedestrian nature of SMA arriving to BCC…pie in the sky design

Not a fan of pedestals either guys but you have to thank the powers that be in Miami for that. They demand parking and unless want a parking lot we will have to deal with the curse of the pedestals.

Dave

Not a fan of a garage opening/curb cut on S Miami Ave but aside from that nice tower.

Movi

I know those garage entrance always look so filthy

Sweetwater Gomez

A white condo tower with balconies atop a parking pedestal – WOW! So original! It’s so Miami.

No parking? Sweet

Yesss! Make it happen!

Who will.buy a condo blocked on 4 sides by other Towers…Lux to the East, Brickell Heights to the South, Solitaire to the west and the East Hotel.to the North??

Construction costs of this project will.only be justifiable selling at over 1000 a sft.

Brickell Heights just lost their views

Let’s make brickell more dense to have that experience in Miami, if you don’t like it you can always move to the many many boring suburbs already in Miami.

What is going to happen with brickell heights now ? …the views ?

Anonymous

Brickell Heights has 0 views just like SLS Lux

alpina

Well they didn’t have much to see anyways. I think the attractive aspect about this area is definitely not the views but the location and convenience of having gyms, retail, restaurants, bars, movie theaters, food halls, supermarket, pharmacies, all within a walking distance

You’re not buying there for the views…
