Revealed: 38-Story Office Tower Planned At 888 Brickell

A developer is looking to capitalize on downtown Miami’s booming office market with a new tower at 888 Brickell Avenue.

Alphatur, NV submitted plans for a 38-story office building. It would replace an existing 8-story building on the .51 acre property.

The proposed project includes 304,950 square feet of office space, along with ground floor retail and restaurant space. A 264 space parking garage is also included.

The building would top off at 472 feet, with 30 usable floors.

Arquitectonica is the architect. Miami’s UDRB will review the plans next week.

Not a bad looking building. Just wish it was much taller.

Not a huge fan of the architecture but Downtown/Brickell is dire need of office space not to mention the importance of having more jobs in the city center.

Is the office market booming? I like it. I wish something like this were in the CBD.

Little bit of history on the current 888 Brickell Ave, that was the first building built by Tibor Hollo way back in the ’70’s. Going from 5 stories to 38 is not bad, maybe in another 40 years, they will tear this one down and build an 80 story skyscraper.

Lot is too small to justify a taller tower. Cheers

80 stories? Really? More like 130 floors. In the future, planes entering MIA will be diverted to make way for supertalls.

Why tear it down?
Just build something on the gazillion empty lots everywhere else

I don’t care how tall or how it looks long as its not another condo. This will actually bring jobs not another condo with seasonal rich residents.

I like it, but is the office market really booming? Has it ever been since the crash? I know that when it did start to come back a few years ago, new space was already appearing in the late-to-finish Wells Fargo and 600 Brickell buildings. If it’s true, then “office market booming” is no small statement. That has always been the hold up for highly anticipated projects such as One Bayfront Plaza and now One Brickell City Centre.

I like more office, but the building is boring! Looks very 1980s style.

Well shit. I LOVE that Diario Las Americas building, it’s a beautiful example of modernism. I understand office space is needed, I just wish some texture — varying heights and designs — were kept in this town. That said, the new building is also nice in a classy way, it’s just boring. The current building is interesting and should be considered important local architecture, like Office in the Grove down on Bayshore. I’ll be really upset if/when they knock down the Pacific National Bank building at 14th and Brickell. 🙁

Let’s get real. Miami is a big and major upcoming city but not a global city. We will get there but it takes time.

Awful A/C Filter masquerading as a building. Worse, it will replace one of Miami best and most charming brutalist buildings. Send it to the suburbs, please.

Total waste. Miami should require all new buildings in brickell to be 50+ floors. Either go big or go home. We are a global city now, it’s time we start taking ourselves seriously. 38 floors is a total crock.

Hey dummy, the city doesn’t dictate how high building should go, the market does. If they were able to finance a deal with 500k of office sq ft and get it leased, I am sure they would. Learn the business before you spout off

We are far from a “global city”. Beautiful building that will bring a number of much needed jobs to the area. Something Miami is lacking, we should embrace it, not add extra requirements to keep development from happening further. If we wish to become a global city, we need more high paying jobs so that people don’t continue to leave this city.

Miami has always had a backward mentality. Creativity pipe doesn’t flow well in such environment. Global cities are open to ideas, tolerance, mobility and diversity

Lot is too small to justify a taller building. You could build it, but it would only reduce the floorplate size from an optimal 10K sf/floor to about 6k sf/floor, which doesn’t make it easier to lease up, but greatly increases the cost to build. Cheers.
