Twin 700-Foot Towers Proposed To Replace Brickell Gas Station

A Mobil gas station in Brickell and a neighboring lot could be redeveloped with twin 700-foot towers, according to a new FAA filing.

The properties are owned by an affiliate of Aston Martin Residences developer G and G Business Developments.

The Aston Martin tower is said to be nearly sold out, with just 17 of 391 units remaining as of June.

According to the September 23 filing with the Federal Aviation Administration, the two new Brickell towers are proposed to rise 685 feet above ground, or 699 feet above sea level.

Also proposed for the same block is PMG’s Sentral Brickell, with twin towers including 803 residential units, and Menesse Brickell with 350 units.

Brickell City Centre is also a short distance away.

 

 

G and G is the developer of Aston Martin Residences:

Hopefully they can build with minimal parking and make that corner pedestrian friendly…

There is a parking garage entrance every twenty feet in Brickell. It will never be pedestrian friendly.

Doesn’t it depend on the pedestrian?
I’ve found walking in Brickell to be easy and walkscores seem to mirror that sentiment.

But I get it….some people have a hard time walking and a hard time accepting a life that is anything of Utopia.

Two twin towers would be fantastic for this site. I hope this project is as beautiful as the Aston Martin, certainly one of the most beautiful in Miami.

Eight street will become very dense from I95 to Brickell Ave with all these planned towers.

…and from I-95 to Douglas Road, lined with mixed-use mid-rises like Grand Concourse in The Bronx, and a streetcar line…

It’s great to see more development in the Miami river area. With this project being build my Aston Martin, it is sure to not be an ugly box.

Boxes are not ugly…there are plenty of beautiful rectilinear high rises…

Should have been redeveloped years ago, along with bloody strip malls right in the middle of Brickell.

This part of Brickell is the new horizon and will be even more grand than the rest of Brickell. They need to make sure to include lush landscaping and open pedestrian squares for gathering and public activities – Less cars and parking garages. Add quaint corridors between blocks and pedestrian only streetways with outside dining and greenery. They also should move the electrical wires underground to make it more aesthetic of a walk around the neighborhood.

Are we just going to assume that anything south of the Miami River is “Brickell”? Kinda like being in NYC and being 8 blocks from Gramercy Park – seeing a building called Gramercy Park Tower, etc.

Any concern for hurricanes?

If you’re so worried, move to Dayton, Ohio. No hurricanes, no rising tides, lots of cheap housing. I hear it’s a real chickenshit’s paradise. They get tornados but people tell me those are enjoyable.
