Signage & Crane Installed At 67-Story Mercedes-Benz Tower Construction Site

Signage and a crane have been installed at the Brickell site where a 67-story Mercedes-Benz branded tower is under construction.

Construction on the tower has actually been underway for some time, but the Mercedes-Benz branding and technical silver color scheme was only unveiled last month. A total of 791 Mercedes-Benz residences are planned.

In addition to the residences, the development will also include 130,000 square feet of amenities and hospitality space, 200,000 square feet of office space, health and fitness facilities, a 174-key hotel, retail outlets, and on-site parking.

Completion is scheduled for 2027.

As a resident of Brickell, I’m excited that JDS is teaming up with Field Operations, the creative force behind globally acclaimed parks like Manhattan’s Highline and Brickell’s Underline, to revamp Southside Park. With their expertise, I believe it will become a wonderfully immersive and experiential green space.

Good thing too since Brickell doesn’t have many

Such a tacky name.

“Mercedes-Benz Tower”? How embarrassing.

You should be thankful that Miami is as cosmopolitan as it is, and if you don’t like it, just remember that 95 runs up north to Jacksonville.

“State of South Florid” why are you aggressive with “tacky”?? What a waste of energy. Be kind with your neighbor.

The guy was building multiple skyscrapers for longer than most people in this comment section have been alive.

After decades of development, he is slapped with a 1/2 a billion dollar judgement for some business document violation.

The only thing that he did differently in the last 5 years that he didn’t do for the 35 years was to demonstrate how easy it is to be President in the United States of America competing against men and woman who have never built a single thing in their lives.

One good thing coming from the judgment: at least we’re finally seeing that he’s actually broke now. As if his chronic failure over multiple decades to pay his bills wasn’t enough evidence. lol

He’s got 2.5 billion, he’s far from broke. He doesn’t have 450 million CASH, as most developers don’t. Either way, you shouldn’t want to live in a country when someone doesn’t harm anyone, the exact opposite according to his bankers, who all made money off him, and your government can just come in and steal your life’s work.

I want to live in a country that doesn’t elect a comically uneducated reality tv show host. Now that we’ve all seen his unabashed level of corruption, I hope our government does to him exactly what has long been coming to him. Take his money and throw him in jail until his orange ass croaks.

Love the name! Owning a Mercedes Benz has been a dream, and their attention to detail will surely elevate Miami. Among buildings with complex names, this is a breath of fresh air. If other areas in Miami have luxury-branded towers, Brickell should too 💕

Wow, seeing digging this deep without hitting water is unusual, but they’re likely doing it because this location is among the highest points in Brickell and Miami. This makes it an ideal choice for avoiding flood risks and crafting underground spaces. This project has quickly become my absolute favorite new build in Miami!

yep…tons of people always downvote when I mention underground parking bc of our water table…but its cleary an option at times

Downtown and Brickell is situated on top of the Miami Rock Ridge so thats why all the skyscrapers are built there. They can dig this deep because its pure limestone to the bottom.

True, and this area in particular ranges from about 14 to 20 feet above sea level, making it the highest point in Brickell and downtown.

You can literally see the groundwater in the pictures. It’s actively being pumped out to keep the site dry.

Yeah….you would have to travel about 3 blocks north and 10 ft down in elevation to find 30 ft of underground parking at Brickell CitiCenter.

Deep soil mixing… becoming very popular in Miami. They essentially create a massive bathtub plug with cement and then dig it out. The water table is still there, just held back.

The value engineering is pretty unfortunate. That spiral ramp was an incredible feature – especially for a CAR BRANDED tower

This is a significant departure from value engineering, veering towards marvel engineering. Unlike the previous unfinished, exposed common car ramp, this new design is notably more refined and upscale. I can easily recognize quality when it’s right in front of me, my friend.

That ramp was amazing I agree – a shame it didn’t make the final design

Please ignore those troll comments. Nobody wants to deal with cars going up ramps while trying to enjoy a peaceful park. We’re all about the refined oasis the new design brings ❤️

Nothing like an oasis basking in shadows of the brake pad dust, and screeching brakes of an elevated train.

It seems like you haven’t had the chance to explore some of Florida’s vibrant and tranquil park destinations, such as downtown West Palm Beach, Winter Park, Mizner Park, and Downtown at the Gardens, all conveniently located next to the modern world-class transportation systems. These parks offer an oasis experience in the heart of bustling neighborhoods, with added convenience and cosmopolitan city vibes, thanks to nearby trains.

Cozy, connected shaded spots are a rare commodity in a state abundant with sunshine, making these parks even more welcoming. It’s great to see Miami getting up to speed with its infrastructure, further enhancing the accessibility and appeal of these destinations. With a focus on urban planning and park experiences, Miami’s progress will soon lead the state and nation in creating new vibrant and attractive green spaces. 🚆🌳🌳🏙️🌳🌳🏝️

The reputable branding embodies sophistication and prestige. It will perfectly complement this part of Brickell.

I love this project because everyone that said we can’t do underground parking due to the water table was proven 100% wrong lol. Some areas you can dig very deep and it remains dry as a bone. Not all areas are like this obviously but we should see more of this

Jordan

Not everyone.
People who know real estate and development have known for decades that the water table challenge is not insurmountable.

Miami Beach has several projects with parking garages below grade, some dating back at least 30 years. Oceanfront and Bayfront.

Brickell CitiCenter, 777 Brickell, 444 Brickell, 700 Brickell, 1200 Brickell, etc, etc, etc, all have parking below grade.

The PortMIami tunnel is also underground (duh).
People who know, know that underground parking isn’t that big of a deal.

If the busier One Southside park design was so great, maybe it can be reused elsewhere.
