Brickell Bayview is now Solitair Brickell; New height 555 feet

Work About To Begin On ZOM’s 438-Unit Solitair Brickell
By TNM Staff on January 15, 2015

Site work will soon begin on ZOM’s 48-story Solitair Brickell rental tower at 86 SW 8 Street, across from Brickell City Centre (the project was formerly known as Brickell Bayview Center).

ZOM now has a permit to demolish a ramp that connects to the parking garage of the neighboring Brickell Bayview Center office tower. A construction permit to begin work on the new tower is pending.

The developer plans 438 residential units, 440 parking spaces, and 7,649 square feet of ground floor retail space.Solitair is approved by the FAA at a height of 555 feet.

Zom also has another downtown Miami rental project, the 462-unit Monarc at Met 3, currently under construction above the newly opened Whole Foods market. That brings the total number of apartments that ZOM is adding to the downtown rental pool to 895 units.

ADD Inc is the architect, and Balfour Beatty is the construction contractor.

Nice. It's sort of a throwback to some futuristic architecture, whatever the style was called, from the 1960s. I like it.

We call it MiMo. And yeah, it does at least have a nod to it.

48-Story Solitair Brickell Gets $108M Construction Financing

48-Story Solitair Brickell Gets $108M Construction Financing From JP Morgan Chase, Work Begins.
By TNM Staff on June 9, 2015

Two prominent Wall Street firms are betting on Brickell’s booming apartment market.

Yesterday, JP Morgan Chase issued a $108.35 million construction loan to build the 438-unit Solitair Brickell at 86 SW 8 Street, where demolition of a parking ramp began today. AIG, another big Wall Street firm, is also involved with the project as a co-developer through their Global Real Estate arm, along with apartment developer ZOM.

The tower will rise 555 feet above ground, and include 440 parking spaces along with ground floor retail on a property that is located across the street from Brickell City Centre. ADD Inc is the architect, while Balfour Beatty is the construction contractor.

Elsewhere in downtown, ZOM is finishing construction of the 462-unit Monarc at Met 3. Investment bank UBS granted a $90 million construction loan for that project, and is also said to be a co-developer. ZOM is also working on plans for new rental towers at Met Square and Miami Worldcenter.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Upon Groundbreaking in the second half of 2015 Solitair Brickell will become Miami's 16th. tower over 500 ft. | 152m under construction in the City of Miami.

This is important. Not many cities in the U.S. are doing this right now and that's important to note.

Developer breaks ground on rental tower across from Brickell City Centre







Quote:
Orlando-based developer Zom Holding has broken ground on a 50-story luxury rental tower in Brickell.

The 438-unit building is located at 86 SW Eighth St., a block from the luxury shopping center under construction at Swire Properties’ massive, mixed-use Brickell City Centre project.

The cost of apartments hasn’t been announced yet. The building will open in late 2017. Its ground floor will include about 7,000 square feet of retail space.

You can see Solitaire again here on the bottom right. Looks kind of weird how they are building the back of the tower first for some reason. I guess that is a parking garage ramp. And of course you can see a bunch of other buildings going up as well most notably CityCentre, Brickell Heights, and SLS looks nice in the far back ground and SLS Lux (which somehow does not have its own thread?) on the bottom left. Panorama is peeking through on the middle left as well.

I may be wrong about this but Miami seems to be on its way to having the most futuristic skyline in the US if it doesn't already. Just needs a few groundbreaking iconic towers.

Quite an attractive façade.

MiMo is one of my favorite architectural styles.
