Site Work Underway At Brickell Financial Centre

Site Work Underway At Brickell Financial Centre

At Brickell Financial Centre, a surface parking lot has been closed and site work appears to be underway.

City records show that a permit has been issued to remove 36 trees and relocate 33 others. Demolition and construction permits for the site have not yet been applied for.

The project will be built in three phases, known as 2a, 2b and 2c (the first phase was an office tower).

Phase 2a will include a 12-story structure, with 23,168 square feet of restaurant and 553 parking spaces.

A plaza will be built on the northern half of the lot in the interim, as final plans for Phase 2b and phase 2c have yet to be submitted.

Phase 2b will replace the plaza in the future, with 2,806 square feet of retail, 11,129 square feet of office, and 770 parking spaces. Atop the second garage will be Phase 2c, a 903-foot tower, with up to 360 hotel units and 134 condo units.

Over 1,000 more parking spaces in the absolute heart of Brickell.. unnecessary and simply not reflective of major cities like New York and Chicago.

But this will continue until the perception of public transportation changes in this city, which will only occur with something like the SMART plan

SMART will never happen. Transit Dept just approved another year and $33m of our dollars to “study” the plan.

It is not just perception, the metro mover is not efficient! It needs to run more continuously, without random extended waits at stations, because trains are broken down at other stations, creating the rest of the loop to stop. We need dollars going toward updating the metro mover ASAP!

Thousands of parking spaces and 3 foot wide sidewalks. That says all you need to know about Miami and their vision of the future.

Well, great job on trying to make the traffic situation worse. We are just giving more and more opportunities for people to use parking in the city. Why can’t the city just say no to this?

Hopefully they’ll spread those trees around Bayfront Park, Museum Park, and the Marine Stadium. I would suggest in Wynwood too, but I don’t think that $393,000 Woonerf plan is the way to go. Hiding the murals is nuts. The cost alone for the study could buy hundreds of mature trees to be spread across downtown, including its bayfront parks.

Another legacy “MUSP approved” project, and amended to boot. When will the City seriously stand behind Miami 21? It’s just a big blockhouse with no street presence that wouldn’t be possible under Miami 21. Cheers.

Yay more giant blocks of crap with sterile chainy restaurants in the base.

At least it’s by HOK, a proper architectural firm unlike the Miami cabal of mediocrity (Arquitectonica, Stantec, Kobi Karp, Zyscovich, etc.). We might get something sweet at 903 feet, although the currently proposed garage doesn’t help raise any promises.

In a perfect world, we would have had RTKL’s cool rabbit ear tower from the last boom.

The *one* thing Brickell needs is more parking. We are so thankful that they are building another 500 parking spaces as part of the first phase.

Couldn’t agree more.

I agree as well. We need more and more cars driving through Downtown and Brickell and hopefully the Brickell bridge goes up every 5 minutes, during the Summer mid day and afternoon. Love it!.
