Foundation permits have been filed for three mixed-use highrises at 1420 South Miami Avenue in Brickell, Miami. Located between Southwest 14th Street and Southwest 14th Terrace with Southwest 1st Avenue on the west and South Miami Avenue on the east, the approximate 2.74-acre development site is located near the southern tip of the Brickell Financial District. It will give rise to three soaring adjoined superstructures of 50, 60, and 80 stories with around 2.72 million square feet of space. The project was designed by Arquitectonica with ArquitectonicaGEO handling landscape architecture and being developed by Mast Capital. Moss & Associates is listed as the contractor for this scope of work.
The first tower in the permitting process is the highly anticipated Cipriani Residences Miami, a 940-foot-tall condominium building set to change the Brickell skyline and become one of the tallest structures in the city. Phased foundation permits were filed on September 12 by the contractor and now await acceptance from the Department of Buildings to move forward with private expedited review services by Pacifica Engineering.
Phased foundation permits have also been filed for the two smaller rental towers, which are expected to rise approximately 604 feet and 693 feet beside the Cipriani Tower. These were also filed on September 12 by the same contractor and with the same expedited service provider contracted to review the permits.
Vertical construction permits have yet to be approved for either of the buildings and a general contractor is not listed on the pending permits. YIMBY expects Moss & Associates to be selected as the general contractor.
Mast Capital is gearing up to begin construction soon. According to a utilities deal executed on June 29 for the property, the developer can connect up to 420 condominium residences and 880 rental apartments, and an 18,300-square-foot restaurant to the city’s water supply and sewage system. Actual plans for the project include 405 luxury condominiums at the 80-story Cipriani Residences Miami and 425 apartments in each of the rental towers. FAA Approvals will allow the condo tower to rise 950 feet above sea level, and up to 710 feet above sea level for the rental towers. Financing for the development is already secured, and groundbreaking is expected towards the end of 2022. All three towers will rise together and complete construction by 2025.
