A new City Centre in Miami
Brickell is a new project in South Florida. Today, it is the most important innovative construction in Miami. It consists in the development of Brickell area; it is scheduled to deliver 4,6 million square feet to Brickell. This mixed-use development has been assembled with four parcels of land that will be connected by the pedestrian bridge and walkways.
This project will be mostly composed of needed retail but it also include a hotel, restaurants, office suites and apartments - condominiums.
When the first phase is finished in 2015, Swire planned to add 520,000 square feet of retail, 800 condominium units, approximately 250 hotel rooms, 90 serviced apartments and a 110,000-square-foot office tower to the Brickell area.
Brickell City Centre will be a direct competitor for other malls in Miami-Dade County in particular with its open-air shopping mall. This project seems to bring Brickell to a “Manhattanization” of Miami.
