Swire Releases New Renderings Of One Brickell City Centre Supertall, Groundbreaking Soon

Developer Swire Properties released new renderings of their One Brickell City Centre supertall office tower in a social media post this morning.

The developer also confirmed that construction will begin in early 2023.

Signage has also been installed at the project site in recent days.

So far, only a tree permit appears to be in process for the property, with no other construction or demolition permits yet pending.

Miami commissioners voted September 22 to approve zoning changes needed for One Brickell City Centre, including allowing larger floor plates.

Hong Kong-based Swire is partnering with Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross’ Related Companies on the project.

This tower is world class. It really reminds me of when the South East bank tower was first built. This will become the centerpiece of the Miami Skyline.

Well, if they want to start construction in early 2023, they need to get going. They need to remove more than 170 trees and demolish two ten stories office buildings.

This is absolutely what Miami needs! Something straight out of lower Manhattan

Why lower Manhattan? Midtown Manhattan has plenty of built or under construction supertall towers. It’s better to say something straight out of New York City.

Midtown NYC is a flytrap, people mesmerized by the lights and leave immediately if they can make it out unscathed. Hopefully this doesn’t become anything like Manhattan – utilize the best ideas and incorporate lush outdoor space with mixed height developments, where people actually wish to stay.

Because lower Manhattan is the financial center of the city, and its where mot office towers are built.

Not true. Midtown Manhattan is actually a bigger city skyline than Downtown NYC is (lower Manhattan).

Midtown Manhattan was an awful place to live and work – I did it for awhile, and Miami has way more to offer. No comparison, nor should there be. Hope developers and leaders maintain Brickell’s beauty and charm well designed buildings like this one. A buffer residential/retail zone of mid/low rises in the west and south would keep it from becoming congested and polluted like other high-rise cities. Also incorporating green space into multi levels and pasos helps. Keep up the excellent job Miami!

With more and more people like you moving here, what makes you think Miami will escape the same fate?

Excellent observation. People are moving here for a reason. They don’t want to be in a place like Manhattan.

So wisdom would bestow upon us the foresight not to turn a place so desirable into a place where many are leaving. Rather than trying to copy something we have seen does not work – we can learn from the best parts and build “The Next Miami” ™️.

Beautiful design! Keep the tall and super tall towers growing in East and North Brickell, and develop a contrasting village style neighborhood with low/mid rises in West and South Brickell. It is already progressing this way and should continue. The mix of heights in this relatively limited development zone will bring balance and ensure that Brickell continues to be a beautiful place to work and live.

Agree! Even Manhattan has a low mid rise community near the financial hub where people can work and play… like TriBeca, or the West Village. From the looks of it, it seems West Brickell is being built out like the West Village with a more residential and retail focus.

It also serves as a transition zone between East Little Havana and Shenandoah, and Southwest Brickell and Coconut Grove.

Precisely, there needs to continue to be a natural progression of height so it’s not super tall abutted next to a neighborhood of single family homes to the west, or the Vizcaya historical property to the south. There’s a beautiful soccer field next to I95 and and west Brickell is really turning out to be a beautiful mid/low rise residential/retail transition zone.

Driving along I95 it’s nice to see the city stagger up, couldn’t imagine if this highway were squeezed between tall buildings. It’s great they are putting up a six story new school along the highway.

The land along the highway is too narrow for tall buildings and with the right low-cost, high-value barriers could be utilized as a park for children to play all year around.

Miami will not and can not be anything remotely like NYC. Manhattan is built on solid rock and is capable of supporting the skyscrapers. Miami is a flood zone area and is incapable to support skyscrapers. BTW, a high rise is a building that has 7 or more floors according the classification of a building.

Excluding the whole Dolphins debacle, Steve Ross of Related has far done more for Miami than Jorge Perez of the “other” Related with less real estate, and hopefully there’s even more to come. Even with the same architect, the quality is night and day.

We need more luxury housing in West Brickell asap. People are moving to work in South and East Brickell. They need more luxury housing in a central walkable area.

Anonymous

Building more “affordable housing” is not going to improve the housing crisis. There’s plenty of affordable housing options in Miami – it’s just that people in the market for luxury housing would never choose to live there, but are being forced to sue to lack of luxury housing, which is driving up the costs in those “affordable housing” buildings. There’s a shortage of luxury housing.

We should focus on this to support all the new offices and business professionals moving to Miami. They want to be in a walkable nice community.

Agreed in this case, where it’s a main architectural feature of the tower. It’s not like asymetrical balconies or windows on a box, which make buildings look cheap and nasty.

Will this tower take up the entire block? Seems like from the renderings that the existing garages at 799 Brickell will be demolished, as well as the office tower on the corner on Brickell Ave.

People keep saying there is a shortage of affordable housing but that’s not the case. There’s a shortage of luxury housing. Miami has so many cheap neighborhoods, but the lack of luxury housing in Brickell is driving up the costs and not keeping up with the demand. Hope developers build more top-tier luxury housing, and city supports it. Based on my assessment of the area West Brickell is the number one spot for this market.

Agree. There’s a lot affordable housing being built or built in Little Havana, Flagami, North Miami, Doral, Miami Springs, Cutler Bay, Miami Shores, etc.

However, there is a luxury housing shortage near the financial center, and it’s slowing down the economic growth and making it more expensive everywhere else. Even places that are not “luxury” are marketing themselves that way at high costs. We need competition in the luxury market.

If we build more luxury housing in West/South Brickell and Downtown, we will see the surrounding neighborhoods pick up too.

Agree, we need more luxury residential developments in Brickell, especially around the metro stops, and Downtown.

The alternative, is an ghetto core, where people don’t want to commute to, so investors develop outside the core. We saw that in previous decades.

There are plenty of affordable places along the metroline within easy reach of the urban core, Dadeland South, Dadeland North, Overtown, Culmer, Allapattah, Hialeah, Palmetto.
