Brickell City Centre Files Plans For Expansion To Tobacco Road Property

Brickell City Centre Files Plans For Expansion To Tobacco Road Property

Developer Swire Properties is planning to add at least two more towers to their Brickell City Centre complex, the company told the Herald.

The new towers will be built on the former Tobacco Road property and surrounding block, as well as a block across the street where Associated Photo was once located. They will be connected to the existing mall by skybridge.

Plans have already been filed with the city, with approval expected by the end of this year and construction to begin in early 2020.

The expansion will include:

  • 588-unit condo tower
  • Three levels with 87,000 square feet of retail at base (enclosed and air conditioned due to site constraints)
  • Podium with parking
  • Second boutique condo tower

Two additional expansions are also planned, but Swire hasn’t yet firmed up plans for them.

The design for One Brickell City Centre, the 1,049-foot tower on Brickell Avenue, is still evolving. Swire says the timing isn’t right yet, and that there is very little margin for error.

Swire also owns land the North Squared lot next to Brickell City Centre, where residential is planned. Those plans haven’t been revealed yet.

Arquitectonica is one again the architect for the latest expansion.

Yeah but they only had two stories at 1 o’clock today so one story Sunday night, one early today plus two at their usual time equals the four they always publish so nothing extra was done really…

Such a shame they are resorting back to parking podiums after building wonderful buildings without out them.

Such a shame that people like you are always complaining about parking podiums.

Why don’t you try to learn why they have to build these podiums and then you wouldn’t waste time knocking them.

Yet another guy from the future when we don’t need cars. Hey buddy look around it is 2018, we do not have flying cars or teleportation yet. And yes, we still need parking garages. Now go back “when” you came from.

Ure, but we might have teleportation by 2020.

Beautiful designs for the condo towers. It would be nice if they could start before 2020 to add to the growth of Brickell!

Completely agree. I also read they will have 3 levels of retail. I hope they can bring stores that the locals can use like Total Wine, furniture stores, etc.

I’d rather see Target in the former Macy’s space, and something better utilizing views of the Miami River here than more blank wall stores.

Agree. It’s awful to see developers leaving projects incomplete and nothing that can be done about it. Renderings are useless

The Edge @ Brickell is between the residential tower and the river. As much as I hate Architectonica, BCC and this project add to the skyline and work well from a pedestrian level

Man, I wish these developers would use other architect firms besides Arquitectonica.

What a great location this has become.. and will continue to grow with this and other projects in the works.

More residential in the Brickell Area. I hope one day developers will build Class A office space and Miami officials get a grip on a coherent marketing strategy for Miami as a business hub and not a tourist destination.

The Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau has been doing an exceptional job of marketing Miami as a business hub for well over a decade.The Beacon Council, Enterprise Florida, and the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce Americas Linkage programs all provide constant outreach, trade missions, and marketing. It is and has been working ,

If it is working so well why is no developer touching office development then and I don’t remember any large company announcing moves or expanding in Miami. 4 traders at a hedge moving to Miami just don’t do it and to advertise this as a big news/success story is laughable.

Mixed use is the way to go, and they’re doing it

Office buildings at BCC
Office towers around Brightline/Miami Central
Office towers around Miami World Center

They’re building at the demand of Miami

very low percentage of the overall square footage and the demand is very low hence the low percentage. How about increasing the demand????

Any idea when we can expect the row of businesses (River Oyster Bar, Bonding, Etc.) to shut down? I know that Epic Gym is currently paying their lease month-to-month.

Slowly losing hope on this tower.

Well don’t lose hope, not with Swire. They know what they are doing…

In other words they haven’t found enough tenants yet to fill an 1049ft tower yet. If that was the case they would be pour the foundation right about now.

Well, I hope the “evolving design” looks better than that mediocre crap they first threw at us.

Interesting to see more phases adding up to this massive project. But unfortunately there is little info on starting time of the other phases. For example, they own the site north of La Centrale and they were going to have another department store that would be connected by a bridge that would even be part of the store, but since La Centrale occupies every floor in the north end of the present mall, they cannot have the bridge anymore unless you have to cross through La Centrale to get to the future northern portion of the mall….like Macys in Dadeland which is a little odd.
Also, at one point they have said Carlos Mattos owns the site where Brickell Greenery was once planned, and Mattos was partnering with Swire to extend the mall all the way to the river. At this point, this is still a mystery and on my opinion could be the juiciest phase of them all due to the proximity to the river and having the chance to open up the mall to ‘a plaza’ next to the water…perfect for restaurants and bars.

Why wouldn’t they just continue the climate ribbon and pedestrian walk north into the next phase?

Probably because the climate ribbon is a gimmick in Miami’s 95 degree summers.

Please, get informed before you talk. The ribbon was designed and manufactured in Germany. It makes the hot air circulate keeping the mall’s open area cooler without the need for an AC. It also collects the rain waters to be used to cool the podium Central AC System.

theres literally 2 Italian food halls here, clearly one is getting kicked out and I bet they are serviced by the same food industry company.

Very impressive but hate the early 2020 start data, so these towers wouldn’t be finished till 2023.

I guess when you consider we are already at the end of 2018 going into 2019, 2020 sounds about right.

It look like these two condo towers will be build first (2020 thru 2023), with One Brickell City Centre starting around 2025.

Does anybody else feel like Swire trying to compete with MWC? Seems like has been coming out with more an more new details on their plans all of a sudden Swire wants to expand. I hope that’s the case because competition is a good thing. The more one builds the more the other builds to stay competitive.

By the time BCC opens this next phase, WMC will already have a solid and stablished retail component…so yes, i think they planning ahead

No. BCC is real and MWC is still vapor ware.

I like it, keeping with the BCC aesthetic but better with some nice curves.
