About Brickell City Centre in Miami
Green, innovative, and the new heart of Miami’s Brickell district, Brickell City Center’s 5.4 million square foot mixed-use property is set to transform not only the layout of the downtown area, but bring with it upmarket residential, retail, and travel-market experiences previously unknown within this world-renowned commercial and banking hub in Miami.
Brickell CityCentre will consist of six towers including 520,000 square feet of shopping and dining space, a 243-room luxury hotel, 93 high-end apartments, and 820 condominiums spread over two residential towers. The condos will account for about 1,128,000 square feet of the project and will be located kitty corner from each other across the development, one facing SW 1st Avenue intersecting SW 8th Street and the other fronting the Eighth Street Miami Metromover Station at the corner of Brickell Plaza and SE 6th Street. The two towers range in heights from 1,500 feet to just over 2,500 feet, making up about 40 percent of the overall gross footage for the entire project. The condo towers are part of Phase I of the Brickell City Center project, which began construction at the end of 2012 and are anticipated to open in 2015.
In addition to luxury condos for living spaces, office building, and a massive shopping mall, the project, now in its preconstruction phase, also includes a nearly 100,000 square foot combined medical office and wellness center. Brickell CityCentre is also a 293-room luxury hotel with an additional 93-serviced apartment for temporary or part-time residents. As part of Phase I of the $1+ billion development project, the hotel is expect to open its doors sometime in 2015 and is relying on Brickell City Center being at the forefront of an urban revival of the Brickell neighborhood and its transformation into a key commercial, financial, and recreational destination in Miami for visitors from around the world. The upcoming hotel will place guests at the heart of an architectural community of high-rise office buildings, wellness centers, state-of-the-art climate-controlled landscaping, and superior retail experiences. The wellness and medical center will suit a variety of needs from necessary medical procedures to restorative and cosmetic care, making it a one-of-a-kind destination in Miami.
The central location of the Brickell City Center project and its easy accessibility to the Miami Metromover light rail station as well as Interstate 95 means it could be a primary target for high-end renters seeking a convenient living space and professionals requiring quick outlets to Brickell and other parts of Miami. Luxury retailers will have no less than 500,000 square feet of open-air retail space to cater to the desires of the neighborhood’s affluent constituency. The new shopping center will reflect the innovative and environmentally-friendly goals set forth for the entire preconstruction project. Not only will the six-story shopping mall at the Brickell City Center, enhanced by spacious outdoor shopping areas, be significantly larger than the Sawgrass Mills mall, it will also showcase a unique climate-climate control system dubbed the ‘Climate Ribbon’. Composed of a continuous surface of glass, steel, and fabric, and embracing the City Center in its entirety, the Climate Ribbon will shade walkways, outdoor shops and restaurants, escalators, and terraces to stave off rain and sunlight while creating constant airflow in order to optimize temperatures without the use of artificial air conditioning.
