MIAMI | Brickell CityCentre | 6 Towers | 262 FT - 634 FT

Kind of strange that one of the larger projects going on in the US right now has no thread.

The $1.05 Billion mixed use project broke ground back in June and is currently excavating the underground garages and is scheduled for completion in 2015 with the 2nd phase office tower completing in 2018.

It is to include a 520,000 square foot outdoor retail component.

Heights for the various buildings:
Condo: 520 feet
Hotel: 516 feet
Condo: 502 feet
Office: 262 feet
"Wellness Center": 262 feet

Phase 2 office tower: 634 feet.

I thought there was a thread for this already. Maybe it was in the Miami City Compilations section?

Anyways here are some pics that QuantumX posted last month :



^ Looking northeast towards downtown. The building under construction is the MyMiami condo & isn't part of the Brickell CityCentre project. The site covers 3 city blocks.

Bal Harbour Shops owners to partner with Swire on the retail portion of CityCentre. Not sure if that is a good thing or not. I think what Brickell needs is more of your everyday type of stores not more luxury shops like Prada, Cartier..etc (which Bal Harbour is known for).

Owners of Bal Harbour Shops become partner in Brickell CityCentre

When Brickell CityCentre opens in 2015, South Florida’s luxury seekers will be dealing with a familiar retail company. The owners of the Bal Harbour Shops are joining forces with Swire Properties on the project.

BY ELAINE WALKER
EWALKER@MIAMIHERALD.COM

Bal Harbour Shops has decided the best defense may be a good offense.

After years of fighting the expansion of luxury retail in Miami-Dade, the owners of Bal Harbour Shops have done an about-face and decided to help fuel the growth.

The Whitman family, which owns Bal Harbour Shops, finalized a deal Tuesday to become a partner with Swire Properties in the development of downtown Miami’s Brickell CityCentre. Plus, the Whitmans are part of one of the groups bidding for rights to redevelop the Miami Beach Convention Center.

The moves are a dramatic sign of the shifts in Miami’s luxury retail market, a segment the Bal Harbour Shops have controlled since 1965. With Miami’s ascent as a fashion market, retailers have insisted that one store is not enough. The change was underscored last year with the arrival of brands like Louis Vuitton and Prada in the Miami Design District, which is poised to become Miami’s version of SoHo.

“Resistance becomes futile at some point,” said Matthew Whitman Lazenby, operating partner and the third generation to run the business his grandfather Stanley Whitman founded. “Our brands convinced us that they believe there is room for more than one store in the market

“If you recognize that you have competition, than why not become the competition rather than playing defense all the time?” Previously, tenants had to abide by strict clauses forbidding them to open within 20 miles or give up part of their revenues from additional outlets to Bal Harbour.

The Whitmans will make a “significant” equity investment in the retail portion of Brickell CityCentre and serve as co-developer with Swire Properties, which will remain the majority owner of the $1.05 billion urban shopping and mixed-use development scheduled to open in 2015. Both developers will equally share responsibility for all phases of the 520,000-square-feet of retail, from leasing to marketing. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed. Swire will still handle the office, hotel and condo components of the project.

^ Well Prada and some other high end retailers are moving to the Design district which is just a few miles to the north of this project & is a upcoming neighborhood. Either way CityCentre will fill a void for the residents of downtown who now have to drive miles out of their way to find a concentrated area with decent shopping.

Swire has added one more property to the north and added a 7th tower to the project: a new 46 story, 528 foot condo building with 79k more square feet of retail bringing the total to 635,000 square feet of retail in the project.

massive pdf (633 pages) with project drawings.

From exmiami.org. The new building is closest to the River on a small parcel:

Incredible news! Another tower over 500 feet! Will this be part of Phase 2? Anyways let's do a tower count from your post above:

Heights for the various buildings:
Condo: 520 feet
Hotel: 516 feet
Condo: 502 feet
Office: 262 feet
"Wellness Center": 262 feet

Phase 2 office tower: 634 feet. +
New 7th. Residential : 528 feet

So basically Brickell CityCentre will give Miami another five towers over 500 feet alone! This project just might put Miami in 3rd. place in the amount of 500+ footers in the US upon completion.

^ yes because no other city except Miami does this right? Can you say Water Tower Place in Chicago for instance?

I don't think PrivateDick was being sarcastic was he? Looks like an amazing project. Can't wait to get back to Miami.

I think Chicago just might happen to have a bit more already going on in its downtown besides Water Tower Place... now this is just a wild hunch, but I imagine Chicago has some of those other attributes and amenities that make central urban areas great... local attributes that cause developments like Water Tower Place to evolve in the first place.

As you can see, yeah, I was. It's not that it's not an amazing project. It's huge, no doubt. It's just that we could probably come up with about about 100 things that would more effectively improve the urban environment of downtown Miami than this.

The main point is, after a decade of insane residential construction, there is nowhere near a commensurate change in the atmosphere of downtown Miami. Skyline looks great, street-level activity pretty much still sucks. Building a destination shopping mall with a massive parking garage and the same old residential towers atop doesn't really do much to create an urban neighborhood. It creates more suburbs in the sky.

^ I know you too well to know it was sarcasm! Anyways at least the garages will be underground which is a rarity for Miami and a Metromover station will be intergrated within the project with a Metrorail station just a block away too. Street traffic will also continue throughout the 3 block development as well.

^ I didn't realize the garages were going to be underground; that makes me more optimistic about the overall project. And I guess I am overlooking the fact that the Metrorail/Metromover is right there.

It's not that I don't think this is a big deal for the downtown area. I do, and know that Swire doesn't mess around. It'll be a world class development.

Globe's contractors vie for Brickell job

By Scott Blake
Swire Properties Inc. will start interviews in coming weeks to select a contractor to build the $1.05 billion Brickell CityCentre housing, retail and office complex that has drawn interest from some big names in the construction industry, a Swire executive told Miami Today.
The list includes French giant Bouygues Construction, Brazilian conglomerate Odebrecht, London-based Balfour Beatty and New York-based Turner Construction, said Swire Properties President Stephen Owens, who leads US development and investment operations for the Hong Kong-headquartered company.

The first of what will be dozens of cranes are up on the site. Digging of the underground garage continues (will be a long slow process with Miami's water table).
