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.
