7th Tower Added!

Quote:
Behold plans, elevations, renderings, and the like of Brickell CityCentre's new northward addition and seventh tower thanks to exMiami.com. Even though the project's massive three-block first phase is still in the early, early stages of construction, they're already thinking bigger, commandeering the entire block directly to the north between 6th and 5th streets. They've added a 46 story residential tower and amenity deck, along with more parking, and a connection to CityCentre's elevated shopping mall via an expansion of the department store over 6th street, basically making that street a tunnel under a rather cool department store in the sky.

Brickell CityCentre Wants To Invade & Conquer Brickell Ave.



Quote:
Holy Crap. Rumors and speculation that the megaproject that is Brickell CityCentre would snap up the former site of the old Miami Today red brick manor house (now demolished), thereby connecting it with Brickell Avenue, have been vastly under-exagerated according to the Daily Business Review. It turns out that they want the manor house site at 710 Brickell as well as the office building next door (the former Northern Trust headquarters) at 700 Brickell Avenue - both of which happen to be on the market - and CityCentre is willing to pay top dollar for the pair. This gives CityCentre a large corner lot on Brickell Ave and 8th Street, big enough for a massive tower, on a piece of land that is basically the center of the world for a lot of Miamians.
7 towers, 8 towers, 9 towers, how many more? This is quickly becoming one of the largest urban redevelopments in US history!

Brickell CityCentre: The Brickell CityCentre sites are a massive construction project, spanning four city blocks in the center of Brickell. Of all the projects under construction in the city, this is by far the largest and arguably the most influential. Brickell CityCentre will bring 520,000 square feet of retail, 1,300 condominiums and apartments and almost a million square feet of office space. A crane has been placed on the site of the future 57-story hotel tower. The hotel tower will begin going vertical within the next coming weeks.

Bal Harbour Shops founder takes show to Brickell


Stanley Whitman branches out to Swire Properties' CityCentre


From left, Matthew Whitman Lazenby, Stanley Whitman and Randy Whitman


Quote:
At the age of 94, Stanley Whitman could reinvent luxury retail – again.

Growing up during the Depression, Whitman, the owner and founder of Bal Harbour Shops, learned a precept he continues to live by: luxury is an inelastic good.

The shopping center north of Miami Beach, which opened in 1965, was named last year the world’s most productive shopping center, measured by sales per square foot, on the planet.

“I brought the Fifth Avenue merchandise back to Miami,” Whitman told The Real Deal. The shopping center, the site of the first Gucci and Prada retail outlets in the U.S., drew wealthy Northeasterners to South Florida. “If I’d leased the stores to type of clothing my wife dressed in, I’d be broke,” he said.

“With Miami rated as the third poorest large city in the U.S., what we have here could not exist in 1965 nor today,” he said.

For consumers of luxury from cities like Buenos Aires and Moscow, Bal Harbour Shops, which Whitman opened as a retired U.S. Navy officer in 1965, is synonymous with Miami – a mecca for high-end shopping.

Now the Whitmans are branching out in a joint venture with Hong Kong-based Swire Properties to develop the retail portion of the future Brickell CityCentre, a $1.05 billion mixed-use complex.

Stanley Whitman says wealthy out-of-towners have been Bal Harbour Shops’ lifeblood, and that a new influx of foreign tourists from Latin America, Russia, the E.U. and China is the impetus for CityCentre.

“Our interest in the Brickell CityCentre is very simple: Bal Harbour was the only location available to get this huge tourist business, but now we have tourists coming from the Mandarin Oriental and Four Seasons in Brickell. There’s no change to the concept, it’s just a bigger market, and Latin America and other parts of the world have gotten very wealthy,” Whitman said.

Where have you been? This is going to be a city within a city. They've even bought more land and we don't know yet just how big this project might become. We believe they plan to go all the way to Brickell Avenue and put a taller tower there.

Tower crazed!

Brickell CityCentre Buys 700 Brickell, A Massive New $65 Million Front Door


700 Brickell getting a bulldozer's sweet embrace.

Quote:
As expected, Brickell CityCentre, already ginormous at about five city blocks in size, has purchased 700 Brickell Avenue, an unnamed source told the South Florida Business Journal. CityCentre now has (1) a sizable chunk of prime Brickell Avenue property to expand the already mega megadevelopment, (2) a Brickell Avenue address, and most importantly (c) a giant new front door with the aforementioned Brickell Avenue address. They paid a pretty penny for it too, beating out Related Group and Fortune International who were also bidding for it, to the tune of $65 million.
Here we go, an 8th tower!

I can't wait to see what they have planned for Brickell Avenue and what the new renderings for the overall project will look like. The Miami skyline is going to be huge!
