Swire presents One Brickell CityCentre

Swire Properties presented their plans to the BHA Board for One Brickell City Centre, an 80-story, mixed-use tower at 700 Brickell Avenue, which will be more than 1,000 feet tall. This signature building will encompass three levels of retail, offices, apartments, a boutique hotel and a top-floor restaurant. The building will be oriented and built with a plaza to create a gateway at Brickell and Southeast Eighth Street.

Swire Properties’ Steve Owens said, “The transformation of Brickell, Miami’s urbanization, is underway. Not just in development, but the community is changing. We have something special happening here.”

The BHA Board supported the One Brickell CityCentre project with a formal resolution in support.

Miami Commissioner Marc Sarnoff presented the Grove Waterfront Plan at the same meeting, and encouraged all to vote Nov. 5. The plan opens up currently inaccessible waterfront where the Coconut Grove Convention Center sat and where boat hangers line the bayside. It features a public pier, dining experiences, walkways and a large grassy area. Voters approved the plan in November.

Special thanks to Property Manager Sualy Sardinas and the 1060 Condo Board for hosting the October meeting.
