Smart Brickell Tower 2 Hits 94 Percent Sold, Conversion To Contract Soon

The 25-story Tower 2 at Smart Brickell has reached 94 percent sold, developer Habitat Group announced in a press release.

Conversion to contract will begin at the end of this month.

“Smart Brickell is the largest project in Habitat Group’s portfolio and one of the most exciting to date,” said Santiago Vanegas, founder, CEO and president of Habitat Group. “With Tower 1 already under construction and Tower 2 going into contracts, this is a significant milestone during this cycle of the market. As a developer, this milestone signifies an important accomplishment and I am very proud of our teams for making it happen.”

Demolition is already underway at the site. Groundbreaking for Tower 2 is anticipated for early in Q4, with completion in 2022.

Tower 2 will include 50 hotel rooms and 50 condos with one and two bedrooms, bringing 30,000 square feet of new inventory to the market. Units will be fully finished and can be rented up to 50 times a year on short term platforms such as Airbnb.

Are you the same poster calling this area “West Brickell” in the comments? It’s just Brickell.

I wish they would extend the metromover into West Brickell.

And it should be easy, all they have to do is add to it.

Between I-95 and Metrorail station with Metromover connection is already walkable. Of course, everybody wants a free train on their doorstep.

Can you imagine if they proposed something like this in Chicago?

Yes, it would be shot down pronto. They wouldn’t like for their beautiful city scape to be ruined.

Ugly wall facing I95

Aren’t the people driving on I-95 supposed to be paying attention to the other non-driving a-holes?

Precisely, a lot of a-hole drivers will see the ugly wall and text their non-driving a-hole friends about it and will get into accidents…

Ugly in a Soviet housing-level kinda way.
Maybe that’s the target buyer? The hotel rooms are “anchor baby” suites?

Because it’s so much easier than becoming successful enough to buy land and building something.

The city is really losing out on max density in the urban core… there really is limited land for max high density development and for downtown and brickell to sustain a lot of retail and restaurants they need thousands and thousands of residents and workers… I know owners can do what they will with their property but why not wait until the market can absorb an even higher density project… just my thought…

Uh, I think you should research the zoning height limits for West Brickell.

So many empty pockets for development. Even in the CBD which is still technically surrounding Brickell there is so much wasted land. Trust me, density should not be a problem

LOL, they don’t even bother calling it “West Brickell” now? My preference is still to call it what it is of course, Little Havana.

Actually it’s not Little Havana, that’s just a nickname.

Chase the Cubans out to Key West, bulldoze everything and extend the City of Miami into this area. Just Imagine how big Miami would be.

Miami residents still wonder why Miami’s skyline doesn’t rank in the top ten skylines in the U.S. . It’s because of boxy, white, uninspired, generic looking crap like this in it’s urban core.

According to WorldAtlas, Miami IS ranked in the 12 best skylines in the United States. So what you’re saying is biased.

Absolutely hideous, can’t even be considered architecture, just a huge pile of painted concrete blocks, like a gigantic version of every cheap crappy back yard shed in Hialeah.

I liked that little 1920s apartment house on the east end of the property.
