MIAMI | Echo Brickell | 195m | 637ft | 57 fl | U/C

Super tall condo coming to Brickell

By Martha Brannigan




A New York developer who made headlines in Manhattan with plans to erect a super skyscraper is now planning to launch a very tall condominium on Brickell Avenue.

Kevin Maloney, founder and CEO of Property Markets Group, said the developer will start taking reservations next week for Echo Brickell, a luxury condominium at 1451 Brickell that will rise about 750 feet — or 60 stories — and include up to 250 units.

Maloney and Ryan Shear, managing partner of PMG in South Florida, held a focus group Thursday at International Sales Group, which will market the pre-construction project. They gathered some of Miami’s top real-estate brokers to sound out what the market wants in what would become the tallest residential building in Miami to date.

“The caché of this building is certainly the height and the view,” said Maloney, who separately expects to break ground in July on Echo Aventura, a 190-unit bayfront condo that launched sales last fall.

Uruguayan architect Carlos Ott is handling the conceptual design of the Echo Brickell building, which will feature larger units than typically seen on Brickell. Penthouses will likely span more than 7,000 square feet.

Looks good. Nice to see a Miami proposal where a good chunk of the building surface is free of balconies.

I was thinking more along the lines of SLS Brickell and Centro. Maybe Panorama Tower also, if it'll be as boring as it appears in the new rendering.

The towers were nice but the podium was quite unsightly. That is not going to be built in that form, however.

Leaked Echo Brickell Renderings Show A Big Swishy Tower



Quote:
Friday, April 26, 2013, by Sean McCaughan


An early rendering and a Google Earth snapshot that were leaked to exMiami show Brickell's latest proposed tall, tall, tall residential tower, Echo Brickell. The plans show a narrow glowing podium, a glowing midsection, and... well, everything's glassy and glowing.

The design could have been better and could have been worse, in the end it is good, nothing more and nothing less.

I like this design, surprisingly. A lot of Miami architecture is hit or miss with me.

Echo Brickell May Sell Out Before Work Starts!

Only 30 units left!

Quote:
Big ass Echo Brickell is selling out insanely quickly. The latest behemoth planned for the Brickell skyline, almost as high as the Four Seasons right next door, has reservations for all but 30 of its 190 units, according to a tweet by one of its realtors Aniley Perez. And these kinds of crazy-fast selling numbers seem to be appearing over and over again around Miami. Either this city's a goldmine, or we've learned nothing and are bound to get ourselves in a lot o' trouble all over again. Considering that everyone's still paying in cash, and not mortgages (it's like we're on another planet, where the normal laws of money don't apply) Curbed Miami thinks that so far this city is a-ok. No word yet on whether the penthouse, which architect Carlos Ott will custom design for whomever buys it, has sold or not.

This could be Miami's tallest:

Apparently, Carlos Ott says it's 769 ft. at the uppermost penthouse so with the flaired peak, it will exceed 800 ft.


From Langbro at exmiami:

Quote:
The 'Carlos Ott Penthouse at Echo Brickell:

-On the 61st Floor, or 769' above ground

-Famed architect Carlos Ott will meet with the owner to design the ultimate "residence of dreams."

-4000 Sq. ft (entire floor) plus 1330 sq. ft balcony

-Private rooftop garden (1500 sf)

Looks like this one is practically a given. It could be a new tallest for us depending on when Panorama Tower actually gets started. Can hardly wait to have something new to photograph. Imagine if Banco Santander ever builds their tower on the other side of the Four Seasons.

It sure does look dead certain. This one sold like hot cakes before we even knew what was happening.

Are you serious? You remind me of everyone complaining about the only stellar towers proposed in Manhattan being as "too Chinese." The design is fantastic, and if completed as visioned, will be Downtown Miami's best since the CenTrust Bank Tower in 1987.

Everything else proposed and under construction is too Brasília.

I'm not sure how I feel about the design. It looks like something that belongs more in Dubai than in Miami along with that Hadid thing, but then, people won't be able to say all our buildings look alike, which is a big criticism of Miami's newer high-rise architecutre.
