On the topic of redevelopment of properties on the Miami river, does anyone know the status of the Hyatt Regency redevelopment that was on the TNM a few years back?

The Hyatt team has changed multiple times since then and the project was indefinitely put on hold.

Nice work from TNM capturing this photo. I watched this final piece fall only just a few hours ago.

Me too, the riverwalk looks a bit narrow in those renderings. This property is quite large, I hope related is not trying to get any exceptions for a more narrow riverwalk than required. We are watching.

City must find a solution with the brickell bridge. It’s completely joke when opening.

It’s called a tunnel, but still keep the bridge. It’s historic, charming, and appears integrated well with what’s proposed for Riverwalk.

I don’t get that one. Why would you build a tunnel but still keep the bridge? The bridge has to be raised every time a boat passes. I admit I’ve never found myself concerned with “boat traffic” before, but seriously, why should boat traffic on the River (a lot of which is industrial) have to be slowed up by a bridge that nobody even drives over anymore?

Agree! Live by BCC and every single time I need to cross that bridge it’s always open. What are the odds I always get it open? Even when I go to Whole Foods, I get it open when I go and when I return home. Also, if you are in the front line, most of the times you see private yachts/sailing boats. At least if they stick to opening the brigde at :00 and :30 and when necessary, we can plan accordingly.

Take the Metromover.. it’s more convenient and free!

I work at Port of Miami, and trust me, I’ve given the Metromover and Trolley many chances and they are absolutely not reliable. There’s always an issue with them, I totally understand they are “free” (I believe funded by our taxes), but I cannot rely on transportation that normally disappoints. And no, the i95/tunnel to the Port is not an option, it’s double the miles, plus the 395 exit to Biscayne East/West bounds during rush hour makes this point unbearable.

The topic is the constant openings of the Brickell Bridge. Someone provided a potential solution to my concern (Metromover). However, if you look at this from a broader perspective, you’d understand that the constant openings make major economic/social impact… look online, there are various studies. The bad is that most of the times, or at least the times I’ve noticed, are private yachts and sailing boats crossing. So if you were in a position to provide solutions or a balance to both parties, the private boats/cargo and the land businesses/residents of Brickell/Downtown, the least thing you would say is “if I were you, I would just stay home” or as others may think “move somewhere else”. The mission of great cities is to thrive and they only do it if they adjust to change, and I believe the Brickell Bridge topic has been avoided all these years. Just look at pictures from 2005 vs. today, and you’ll see a hell of a change in Downtown/Brickell.

Get ready for rectangular box and juxtaposition of balconies.
Their creative spark is gone.

I know, such a prime location, really worthy of something truly iconic, which will not come from Arquitectonica

The first phase of this project will begin this year. It will probably include just one tower (the smallest). The river walk will not be completed until the end of the last phase.
Phase 1 will probably take about 3 years to complete. Other phases will probably begin at a minimum interval of 2 years.
Don’t plan on using the river walk for a long time.

They are required to build the riverwalk once site development occurs, building one tower is site development…

“Don’t plan on using the river walk for a long time.” Thanks for the Pro Tip.
To be clear, you mean, don’t plan on using the southern side of the river, greenway for a long time. The north side of the river part of the Miami River Greenway has been open for about 10 years.
