Brickell CitiCentre, the 5 million square foot, three-and-a-half block mixed use megaproject that will include 520,000 square feet of high end retail, two condo towers, a hotel tower, and two office towers, and an underground parking garage, is breaking ground on Wednesday.
Outside the retail shops, many of the individual elements of the project aren’t that different from what already exists in Miami’s urban core. But put them all together, and the open-air design by Miami’s Arquitectonica creates a vibrant gathering spot and a sense of place among Miami’s sea of high-rise towers.
The entire complex will be linked by bridges, and will connect directly to the downtown metromover.
During construction alone, Brickell CitiCentre will generate 1,700 jobs per year and more than double that number upon completion in 2015. The overall economic impact is projected at $1 billion, according to a study by Miami Economic Associates.
