Brickell’s One Southside Park Was Approved Today By The FAA At 773 Feet

A twin-tower Brickell megaproject known as One Southside Park has just been approved by the Federal Aviation Administration.

One Southside Park is proposed to include twin 62-story towers.

The approval by the FAA was issued on December 22, and will allow the towers to be built up to a height of 773 feet above ground.

At that height, the towers would be the third tallest in Miami, behind Panorama Tower (868 feet) and Four Seasons (789 feet). However, Aston Martin Residences is currently under construction with a planned height of 816 feet, and many others are planned above that height.

One Southside Park will include 1,175 residential units, 200,000 square feet of office space, 200 hotel rooms, 100,000 square feet of health and wellness use, 11,000 square feet of commercial space, a new fire station, and 1,000 parking spaces.

The project is adjacent to the Underline. James Corner Field Operations, which is designing the Underline, is also doing landscape design for the project and a planned rebuild of Southside Park.

Shop Architects is designing the project.

JDS is the developer, and the FAA approval letter was issued to an affiliate of the company.

Really they should… but, alas, I foresee more Arquitectonica designed buildings for the skyline in the future.

Hopefully they put the shovels in the ground as soon as they get the green light. For now I’ll be cautiously optimistic.

Although not a big fan of stackable blocks buildings, I’m excited for this project as it could really move the further development of western Brickell and onto more development west of I95

This would add a lot of depth to the skyline and give West Brickell a far more dense vibe. Im guessing this is going in over the fire station.

Miami needs at least another 250 more skyscrapers to begin going up against places like Toronto, New York, and Hong Kong to name a few.

Yeah I’d be 250 years old before that happens… Crazy how New York in the 50’s then has more skyscrapers an mid sized buildings than all the skyscrapers in Florida put together today!

Miami in terms of skyline prominence comes in at number 3, behind Chicago and New York nationally. Remember, Miami is a relatively new player on the national stage.

You are right that in 1950s New York they already had more skyscrapers than we do now in Miami, but 1950s Miami was merely a small provincial city that served mainly as a refuge for northerners to spend the winters. We are slowly becoming a refuge again but for more than weather this time. I don’t think we will ever rival NYC, but I do think we can eventually give Chicago a run for their money.

There is a lot of truth in this post. I don’t know what “going up against” Toronto or Hong Kong meansin the original post, so never mind that. For many companies, especially FinCen companies, international trade companies, and even startups, Miami is in the discussion with NYC and Chicago when leaders consider where to expand, relocate, and add more than just their Latin American Headquarters.

I do know what you see in renders dont neccessary reflect what it looks like in person. I think once its built it will be look a lot better!

it will look imposing when you look at it from I-95, too bad our highways are an embarrasment to our city we need to contact dbi services and send them an email at DBISERVICES.COM and tell them to clean our highways

Just giveup, it isn’t happening! You can make a bigger difference by going on our highway yourself and cleaning it. I’ll even give you a broom! Deal?

Makes me think of the Waldorf Astoria allegedly coming downtown. @TNM can you give us an update on that?

Ugly building, and is soooo big, that will block the rest of Brickell.

If this building can block the rest of Brickell, that means Brickell is really tiny then.

I think we have found the owners who’s views will be blocked. If you didn’t buy direct waterfront or across from an already established tower, just be thankful for the time you have enjoyed the view.

“A waterfront view, a waterfront view, a waterfront view..,” people, waterfront views are not the only thing that makes an area desirable or successful to live in. You can find waterfront views in hundreds of boring places so that being the criteria as the be-all and do-all is something that’s overrated.

Water views are the MAIN thing here in Miami……if you want to spend $800K and get no view or water access, buy a nice house in Kendall.

“Water views are the MAIN thing here in Miami”

Your opinion of water views as THE optimal reason to spend $800K to live in an area is really archaic for an ever growing city. Your thinking is fifty years behind the times and a 1960’s Miami way of building anything only stifles progress.

Over 20 years in real estate development and brokerage tell me otherwise.
Case in point:
The views from One Miami are going to be FAR better than Aston Martin. Are views really “the main thing”?
For a lot of people, views are very important, for sure, but many people will be thrilled own in the financial district, and all the cultural, education, and walkability with or without views rather then direct ocean front view in Lauderhill by the Sea for example.

Out of scale for the area. Unbelievable that someone approved this at that location.

Boy.. some people in Miami are so use to the status quo to where anything new seems out of scale with somewhere.
