Vertical Construction Underway At Brickell World Plaza

Vertical Construction Underway At Brickell World Plaza

Next to Brickell City Centre, Brickell World Plaza is now beginning vertical construction.

The first phase will include 478 parking spaces, along with around 15,000 square feet of restaurant and retail space on the ground and mezzanine levels.

The structure includes 1 story below ground connected to the existing 600 Brickell World Plaza Tower garage, and 12 stories above ground. A public plaza will be built adjacent to the garage, including both green and hardscape features.

The garage’s exterior cladding system will consist of precast architectural concrete panels and undulating perforated metal panels all of which will be backlit by color changing LED lights.

Later, the plaza will be demolished for a future phase which will include hotel, condos and more parking in a 904-foot tower.

Completion of the first phase is scheduled for late 2019.

Moss Construction is the contractor, with HOK the architect.

In the heart of Brickell, we’re building a 12 story garage – with a token amount of retail at the base.

Peak Miami.

This one’s definitely a headscratcher.

These owners are long term investors. They must see a need or value that we don’t.

The structure may just be simply the parking garage for a future building next door. Thus – Unlock an immediate revenue source (retail and parking) …quickly with little capital and capture the parking for the future construction of the building you plan on building anyways.

Increases your potential client base in your existing building, adds a retail base and when you start construction on the larger investment, you have all the parking you need to build it.

Did you miss the part about the 904 Ft tower?

Actually there’s no we. You aren’t building shit, you didn’t make the investment.

Anybody has a right to express an opinion. You don’t have to be a developer to have a valid opinion. And plenty of developers build shit.

Can I buy your property so I can connect the building to the Metro Mover Platform that leads straight into my retail?

What a waste and right next to a metro mover station.

This is one of the things that infuriates me most about Miami. Our elected leaders should NOT allow buildings of this zoning/use RIGHT BESIDE a mass transit station. They could build a damn garage anywhere… why right up against the MM station?

Politicians should not have much of a say in Private Property owner’s rights.

Why not build the 904 foot tower now?

Probably because 904ft towers are really expensive to build and expensive to maintain. And the owners want or need to build in phases.

Condo market is soft, so don’t want to speculated based on just the other components. Cautious strategy. Could of course do rental.

its just a parking garage I cant believe how ridiculous this is

Finally a truthful follow up article about this project. The first one made it sound as if they were going to build this parking garage and then put a tower on top it, that is simply not possible as you have to excavate a huge hole in the ground to put a skyscraper. Not crazy about this project but at least it will be slightly better than an empty lot.

Hopefully this means the tower next to it won’t require a giant podium when it’s built. Plus they removed a surface lot and added retail to the street level. I’d rather have a couple tall garages than tons of surface lots eating up space.

you can add a tower later. Exactly what they did at Nine. Foundation is put in upfront and new tower would be tied in above the parking deck. Risk is it commits you to a design.

At least an empty lot is easier to redevelop than a parking garage creating induced demand, and then you wonder why anti-transit farts are mouthing off about Brightline and Tri-Rail losing money.

Wait so they’re making a plaza just to tear it down to later build a skyscraper?!

The plaza exists now….it will be a little bigger when they finish this second phase.

The area between the river and SW 8 ST, from Brickell Ave to, roughly Miami Ave, is quickly becoming the “hub” of Brickell.

The only way this area will be the “hub” is if the City will designate the climate ribbon as historic

I heard Swire is going to extend the climate ribbon down Miami Ave to Ft Dallas Park

These people at Swire must have money to throw away. I mean, they’re saying they’re going to build a place with “restaurant and retail space on the ground and mezzanine levels” that’s going to compete with the restaurants and retail in the Mall they just built right next to it. And then in future they’re going to tear it down!!!

Wish I had money to burn like that.

I believe Swire is not the developer. Also, I think they are only taking down the public plaza and leaving 5th this box untouched.

The 1st Tower, 600 Brickell, was developed by Foram. Pretty sure that this is too.
