Sitework Underway At Brightline’s MiamiCentral Supertower Property, With First Two Towers Nearly Full

Work is now underway in downtown Miami to square off a site for one of two Supertowers at Brightline’s MiamiCentral property.

A small park in front of the Miami-Dade Civil Courthouse is now being demolished, photos show.

The site will be integrated into one of the Supertower sites at MiamiCentral.

Commissioners voted in 2015 to allow Brightline’s parent company to take control of the property and reroute a city street in front of the courthouse in order to expand the Supertower site.

The developer paid $14 million for the land, and will also contribute $500,000 to a fire station.

Records show that the twin supertall towers continue to move through the approval process as of this month. They will have a combined 2,007 residential units, 49,634 square feet of retail, and 2,136 parking spaces.

There is strong demand for apartments in the area.

Florida East Coast Industries announced this week that they have already leased over 90 percent of 816 apartments in the first two residential towers at MiamiCentral, in what the developer says is “record-breaking” sales velocity. Leasing began in the Spring of 2020.

The two towers known as ParkLine Miami are now listed for sale by Brightline’s parent, with an asking price of $500 million. In a press release, the company called it the largest single multifamily asset ever listed for sale in the Southeastern US.

ParkLine Miami is comprised of a 44-story North and 47-story South Tower.

The two new Supertowers will rise 83 stories, or 848 feet.

Every development’s sales/leases now is “Record Breaking “ . The new “iconic”.

Miami has never seen a market like the such. We are in desperate need of those 2000 apartments even though I don’t like the architecture of the buildings. Hopefully the base will resemble something kind of like Brickell city center, that’ll be nice

It’ll do nothing for the “need” for apartments.

They don’t need most people to be able to afford it; just needs to be enough to lease it out.

Unless they change the design (hopefully) which is possible since Brightline is trying to sell the property.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but aren’t they supposed to re-align the road for these projects to make way for the second plot? Or am I thinking of the new courthouse project?

It woud be better if the two towers didn’t have identical designs.

So instead of one legitimate “supertower” with nice massing and the Miami-Dade Courthouse occupying a section, we get two commieblocks with parking garage bases with ugly cluttered facades at the human scale, and a box with prison windows as the new courthouse, and the old one will likely be turned into some weird hotel instead of being used for city hall by an inter-local agreement, while the city engaged in a half-assed PPP the redevelop Riverside Center for a cereal box residential tower and generic office building. SAD!

…. but they made a $500,000 contribution to the fire department. That’s what matters.

And paid 14 million dollars for a sliver of land that can hardly be called a park. The super talls will probably have a green space requirement so it’ll be a better utilization of the space.

It was a nice little park but unfortunately it had turned into a bathroom and crack smoking area.

people can’t have opinions? this architect wannabe has been bashing for years most of the projects that have been announced on this blog. nobody is censoring him, disagreeing with him is not censoring him

Yes, some people can’t have opinions in this comment section when the term *architect wannabe” is thrown around because somebody dislikes a building. “Disagreeing with him is not censoring him”. Yeah, you’re correct. But it’s not disagreeing. It’s twisting somebody’s argument and making the claim “then do it yourself” as a way to shut them down.
