New office and restaurant to break ground in BrickellApril 13, 2018
The owner of the Brickell World Plaza office building obtained a $20 million construction loan to break ground on an expansion.
It will fund a project at 44 S.E. 6th Street, which is currently the parking lot behind the 40-story Brickell World Plaza at 600 Brickell Ave.
The new building was approved for 7,809 square feet of offices, 7,340 square feet of restaurants, and about 553 parking spaces. All those parking spaces would open the door to a third tower to rise on the property, although that plan is in the preliminary stages.
Brickell World Plaza, or Brickell Financial Centre.
The first phase includes a plaza next to Brickell City Centre, which will be open to the public. There will also be a 12-story garage with ground floor retail.
Later, the plaza will be demolished. In its place, a 903-foot tower will rise, with up to 360 hotel units and 134 condo units.
From the Next Miami
At Brickell Financial Centre, a surface parking lot has been closed and site work appears to be underway.
City records show that a permit has been issued to remove 36 trees and relocate 33 others. Demolition and construction permits for the site have not yet been applied for.
The project will be built in three phases, known as 2a, 2b and 2c (the first phase was an office tower).
Phase 2a will include a 12-story structure, with 23,168 square feet of restaurant and 553 parking spaces.
A plaza will be built on the northern half of the lot in the interim, as final plans for Phase 2b and phase 2c have yet to be submitted.
Phase 2b will replace the plaza in the future, with 2,806 square feet of retail, 11,129 square feet of office, and 770 parking spaces. Atop the second garage will be Phase 2c, a 903-foot tower, with up to 360 hotel units and 134 condo units.
