Want To Build A Supertower? Here’s Your Chance (Photo)

Signs at Brightline’s MiamiCentral property advertise that two supertower sites are available for sale.

The properties were listed for sale in January.

Brightline’s parent company has previously filed with the FAA for approval to build the towers up to 991 feet above ground, or 1,000 feet above sea level.

The company also filed platting documents for the properties over the summer of 2020.

The north supertower closest to the existing Brightline hub was planned to have 800,000 square feet of office space and 50,000 square feet of retail, according to the plat documents.

A south supertower next to the Miami-Dade civil courthouse was planned to have 750 hotel rooms and 50,000 square feet of retail.

Brightline parent company FECI controls the properties through two entities: Miami Supertower A LLC and Miami Supertower B LLC.

The greatest scam since Lyle Lanley sold Springfield a useless monorail and Jeff Loria conned the City into paying for his stadium. They first hoodwinked Branson into a 50% stake then sold off the 2 developed towers and now have decided to sell off the 2 lots to complete the trifecta. Enjoy your “high speed” train. So long, Suckers !!

Lyle Lanley is most like the Metromover cheerleaders, and Branson just made a dumber business decision than Crystal Pepsi.

Look, if you can’t call it the “Iconic Ferris Wheel,” then don’t call it anything at all.

Sounds like a major casino complex is already coming by the water. I wonder how many drunk gamblers will decide to wander out on the Venetian Causeway at crazy hours.

Meaning these lots will be empty for a while because people are just going to flip it

Brightline is flipping it. Why would someone else bother buying to flip when brightline has already had the are rezoned. Might take a while to find the right developer, but i doubt this changes hands a few times.
