UDRB Approves 1111 Brickell Bay Drive, 888 Brickell Avenue

Miami’s UDRB voted to approve two Brickell towers yesterday, while rejecting a Special Area Plan in Little Haiti.

  • 1111 Brickell Bay Drive, which will include a 61-story tower and add hundreds of hotel and apartment units,  was approved by the board, according to The Real Deal. Board members asked the developer to consider adding more parking and opening up more ground floor retail however.
  • 888 Brickell Avenue, a new 38-story office tower, was rejected by the board two weeks ago but approved at the latest meeting. Project architect Arquitectonica tweaked the design.
  • The Eastside Ridge Special Area Plan, which proposes 2,800 units in Little Haiti, was rejected.

I foresee that construction at Brickell Bay Drive will be ongoing for the next twenty years. When Panorama is done they will start this one, after this one there will be something else. The city should pave the road with concrete to resist increased truck traffic and add extra pumps to avoid floods.

More parking is stupid. UDRB members are definitely too old and have a very short vision of what’s coming. Thanks to Uber, Lyft and autonomous vehicles, car ownership is getting obsolete little by little. in 10 years we won’t know what to do with all those useless parking garages.

the people that rent there need to go to work and nobody works in the area that lives there have you not seen the massive exodus at 5 pm to leave brickell and downtown

lol people leaving at 5 obviously don’t live in Brickell. If there’s an exodus is because most people do work in Brickell/downtown. The none sense of your comment is so brutal should remove it before more people see it.

Adding to what Anonymous said, I couldn’t agree more… I live in Brickell and I see a lot of my neighbors ditching their cars because it makes less and less sense everyday. This month a ride from Brickell to Hallandale in Uber is only $2. Wait until Uber ditches the middleman (driver). Car ownership will indeed become obsolete. The parking garage in my building is already a lot emptier than it was a year ago…

I wonder what will become of those empty garages in the future.

Because it looks ridiculous.

It’s incredibly out of place.

But I liked how it was next to the train tracks and could’ve been transit-oriented residences.
