‘Urbanist’ Parking Garage Next To Brickell City Centre Is Nearing Completion

A 12-story parking garage at Brickell World Plaza that developers say is “Urbanist” friendly is nearing completion.

Representatives of the developer said in their application to build the garage that it was designed with Miami 21’s urbanist goals “to the greatest extent possible.” New ground floor restaurant space

The project will include 23,168 square feet of restaurant space and 553 parking spaces.

Ground floor spaces will be lined with as 7,000 square feet of restaurant space, along with landscaping designed to further activate Brickell’s bustling pedestrian activity.  Loading will be internalized and driveways will be minimized.

The 12-story height is temporary, according to a letter from the developer’s attorney. A future phase will include up to 360 hotel units, 134 condo units, and an additional 770 parking spaces in a 904-foot tower

Or you could walk from Brickell to the park because, you know, you want to keep from turning into another fatass.

if you are going build a parking garage at least not make it look ugly!!! Wtf! This looks like an airport parking garage. Why does a garage need to be a square why not a circle or a triangle?? the design district garages look amazing this has no Miami flavor.

Architecturally and logically, there are many reasons triangles or circles don’t work for parking cars. Open your third eye and think a little…

The only good thing about this is it’s not a parking lot. I love how urbanist is in quotes.

If there is one thing Brickell needs it’s more cars and more parking spaces.

Parking lovers should look up the ULI’s recommendations to the city of Miami’s zoning laws.

Sorry but when I’m out and about, I do love it when I don’t have to drive around looking for a place to park or fight over a parking spot.

Take an Uber/Lyft.

Okay I will, only if you pay the cost for the Uber/Lyft every time I take one of them.

Cost of parking is more expensive than an Uber/Lyft (for many people living close to downtown).
Actually, if you do the math on the (1) cost of a car + (2) cost of insurance + (3) cost of gas and maintenance + (4) cost of parking / tickets / license plates / etc…….. taking Uber/ Lyft / etc . = Far cheaper (at least for now as Uber and Lyft do not seem to profit yet as companies).

Sure, if you’re just going to a specific destination then Uber/Lyft is cheaper. But for the everyday running around plus going to work and back home, noway will calling for Uber or Lyft is going to be cheaper on a monthly basis.

A massive parking garage in the middle of brickell is called urbanist lol

Does anyone remember the foundation pour for this parking garage? If it really is the base of a 900 ft tower, the foundation should have been massive. If we go back and look at the foundation pour, we can easily fact check their claim about the future tower.

It’s false. I remember reading a story on TNM a while ago stating they will build the tower next to this garage. Hopefully, they will build something on top of the garage so it’s not so pointless.

The foundation will not support any tower. See the pictures: https://www.thenextmiami.com/vertical-construction-underway-at-brickell-world-plaza/

This is one of the few developments in brickell with a public plaza built and maintained privately using no public dollars. The activation of a vacant parcel with restaurant and additional parking is good for the area. This family should be recognized for the investment they have made in Miami and the exceptional public plaza. I have no relationship with them. Just my opinion.

No. They built a giant parking garage in the middle of a vibrant city. Cars are the enemy of walkable pedestrian friendly neighborhoods.

Say hello to the new location of the River Oyster Bar plus more restaurants. The sister tower to 600 Brickell is not on top of this garage. It will be next to this which will be a public plaza until the tower gets built.

I knew this would be some extreme outrage bait when I saw the headline and I was not disappointed by the comments.

Yeah, and if these outraged commenters were to go to Brickell, they’d damn sure want someplace to park their car in.
