Real Estate

Colombo teams with Russian developer on Brickell Flatiron condo

By Martha Brannigan The Miami Herald

[email protected]

Veteran Miami developer Ugo Colombo is finalizing negotiations to jointly develop a high-end condominium, the Brickell Flatiron, with Russian developer Vladislav Doronin of Capital Group.
A new rendering of the Brickell Flatiron project shows a flowing, curvy structure soaring 65 stories on a triangular lot at South Miami Avenue and Brickell Plaza.
Plans for the fledgling partnership include developing a second tower on a lot Doronin controls at Brickell Plaza and Eighth Street, according to Colombo, of CMC Group Inc.
“The idea is to join forces and jointly develop the Flatiron and a second building, which has to be designed in the future,” Colombo said.
Doronin, a billionaire developer sometimes called Russia’s Donald Trump, has drawn paparazzi attention for, among other things, keeping company with supermodel Naomi Campbell; media reports said their relationship ended last year.
Colombo plans to launch sales of units at the Brickell Flatiron, 1001 S. Miami Ave., on Tuesday. The Flatiron name — most famously associated with the iconic Flatiron building at Fifth Avenue and Broadway in Manhattan — comes from the triangular shape’s resemblance to the old-fashioned clothing flatirons that were heated on stoves.
The project — which comes as the Brickell neighborhood is in the midst of a condo building boom — is planned to include 552 units and 40,000 square feet of retail development, including restaurant, lounge and shop space.
The 750-foot skyscraper is designed with floor-to-ceiling glass exteriors throughout the units, which will feature 11-foot-deep, elliptical balconies.
“Working with a triangle is not easy,” said Luis Revuelta, the architect who has designed projects for Colombo for more than two decades. “It required studying a lot of options in order to get the highest efficiency for the parking and to see how it all interacted with the core.”
Colombo said the project — his first major undertaking since the recession — “has great access to the street.” He recently returned from his native Italy, where he was shopping for materials for the project, including “good quality” marble and kitchen and bath materials, he said.
“I’m very hands-on. I like to get involved in the details,” said Colombo, whose earlier projects in Miami include Epic and Santa Maria.
The building will have a rooftop swimming pool, a gym and spa, plus an outdoor lap pool on the 18th floor.
Units will have an average size of 1,250 square feet. Plans for penthouse units are yet to be announced.
Prices, Colombo said, will be “in line with other upper-end projects in the area.”
The developer plans to use the Latin American financing model that has been used in the current round of condo projects, relying on large deposits from unit buyers to fund much of the construction.
CMC will require a 20 percent deposit from buyers upon signing a contract, 10 percent at groundbreaking, 10 percent when construction reaches the 18th floor pool level and 10 percent at top-off.
The developer is building a sales office on the site and plans to handle sales in-house. Colombo said he expects to break ground “by year-end, maybe before.”

These below are renderings of the original design. There is now a small park at the corner that is on the other side of the Metromover. The original design had the Metromover going through that corner of it. You can see the cut out in the second rendering below. I think the new developers decided to preserve the park. They might even rename the project. We don't know yet.

Brickell Flatiron Tower Footprint Preserves Allen Morris Park

Quote:
The south side of the small Allen Morris Park, which Curbed at one point called "Brickell's Bleeding Green Space", isn't going anywhere after all. In response to news that the Allen Morris Company was supposedly suing the City of Miami over the future of its little martyr of a namesake park, which is adjacent to the planned Brickell Flatiron tower, Curbed acquired a site plan of Flatiron from someone connected with the project. The plan clearly shows the tower's footprint going around the park, which is demarcated as 'NOT A PART' of the project...

The second rendering of the first post reminds me of Hongkong. But i'm afraid this one could turn out a bit bulky, not like a true flatiron.

CMC Preparing To Break Ground On 65-Story Brickell Flatiron

Quote:
CMC Real Estate appears to be making final preparations to begin construction on the 65-story Brickell Flatiron tower.

In November, the developer filed a 250-page Declaration of Condominium for the project. Maintenance fees came in at just above 70 cents per square foot.

Monday was the last day for popular bar and eatery Barú Urbano, which sits on the land at 1001 S. Miami Avenue where Flatiron will be built. A permit to remove and relocate the old growth trees on the property has been approved by the city.

Plans Call For Brickell Flatiron To Rise 731-Feet; Marriott World Expo Center Goes For 640-Feet


Quote:
Developers have submitted plans to the FAA for two towers in the downtown area.

Brickell Flatiron is proposed to rise to a height of 731-feet above ground level, or 737-feet above sea level. Only two towers in Florida currently exceed that height – the 789-foot Four Seasons in Brickell, and the 764-foot Southeast Financial Center in downtown Miami.

Construction on Brickell Flatiron is proposed to begin on February 15, although that could change.

MDM Development’s 1,800 room Marriott World Expo Center is proposed to rise to a height of 640-feet above ground (or 653-feet above sea level). Construction is expected imminently .

Brickell Flatiron Model Shows Nearby Park Spaces Preserved



Quote:
Hey Brickellites, remember when the fight for the future of Brickell Flatiron Park was a big thing? The park has been around for a while now, with the sales center for Brickell Flatiron occupying some of it recently. There is a model of the future condominium tower inside that sales center that shows the CMC Group's plans for that public green space, as well as Allen Morris Park, a block to the north. The model shows a trapazoid-ish shaped open space in the triangular Brickell Flatiron Park, in which developer Ugo Colombo says he will likely build a little retail or restaurant building. The plans are still, apparently, up in the air, but will, at most, take up about half of the current park. On the other hand, however, Allan Morris Park is officially in the clear.

Ugo Colombo committed to a 2015 start

http://www.thenextmiami.com/index.ph...ter-this-year/

Quote:
CMC Group is moving forward ‘at full course’ with Brickell Flatiron, and CMC’s Ugo Colombo might still develop the 830 Brickell project if he finds a partner, a source with the developer told TNM.

Between 200 and 250 units at Brickell Flatiron have now been reserved, or almost 40% of the 549 units available for sale. Contracts continue to come in, at a rate which the source insisted was comparable to other competing projects.

The building is also within striking distance of the 50% reserved mark needed to break ground. Colombo is said to be in talks with multiple banks for financing.

Although groundbreaking has been delayed from earlier forecasts, the CMC source attributes this to Colombo’s meticulous attention to detail. The developer is now targeting an October groundbreaking.

FAA approved: http://www.thenextmiami.com/index.ph...n-sunny-isles/

Quote:
It’s Christmas in August for three Miami developers, after the FAA approved the heights of their projects. They include:

• Brickell Flatiron, approved for a height of 734 feet above ground.

• Marc Robert’s Park West tower at 50-60 NE 11th Street (part of Worldcenter), replacing Euforia nightclub building. Approved for a height of 699 feet above ground, or about 10% taller than Miami Innovation Tower on the same block.

• Ritz Carlton Residences Sunny Isles, approved to build at 642 feet above ground.
