As the fastest-growing community in Miami-Dade County, Brickell certainly has no shortage of ambitious development projects. The chic and densely populated urban center has long led the way in areas such as urban planning and infrastructure. In fact, some of the most iconic and acclaimed buildings in South Florida can be found here, with many more being planned or constructed.
There have long been plans to improve the area’s public transportation system – already one of the best in South Florida– so as to accommodate the ever-growing influx of residents and visitors. According to Curbed Miami, a local real estate website, there is one especially audacious plan that calls a for a veritable city center:
“All Aboard Florida wants to build bigger than ever in downtown Miami, according to documents submitted to the city to create a Special Area Plan encompassing the land it owns, posted over on exMiami. Envision a soaring megaproject rivaling Brickell CityCentre wrapped around an elevated train station reached via viaduct, in the middle of downtown. Sounds like Batman. Or those baroque Victorian imaginings of the city of the future. Where do the flying pirate ships go?
The new Special Area Plan, which AAF is calling the Downtown Intermodal District, gives some details of the station complex, without revealing any actual designs by architecture firm Skidmore, Owings, & Merrill. Station platforms will be above grade, elevated above cross streets and thereby minimally interrupting existing cross traffic, with towers above that. There will also be some development below grade, and under city streets.
The station and its towers will have about 1.5 million square feet of office space, almost a million square feet/785 units of residential, 495,000 square feet/820 hotel rooms, 450,000 square feet of retail, and a 63,000 square foot intercity passenger rail station and concourse. It will have (only) 3,730 parking spaces, a significant reduction from what is required under the zoning code.”
Needless to say, Brickell.com will be keeping tabs on this amazing development. It’s yet more evidence of the world-class attractions and amenities that define life in this hip community. No wonder Brickell is so popular!
