#1

A developer is looking to capitalize on downtown Miami’s booming office market with a new tower at 888 Brickell Avenue.

Alphatur, NV submitted plans for a 38-story office building. It would replace an existing 8-story building on the .51 acre property.

The proposed project includes 304,950 square feet of office space, along with ground floor retail and restaurant space. A 264 space parking garage is also included.

The building would top off at 472 feet, with 30 usable floors.

Arquitectonica is the architect. Miami’s UDRB will review the plans next week.

UDRB Approves Flashier Design For 888 Brickell Office Tower

Miami’s Urban Design Review Board has approved plans for a 38-story office tower at 888 Brickell after it was redesigned by Arquitectonica.

Arquitectonica’s Raymond Fort, the 28-year-old son of the company’s founder, is overseeing design of the project.

Originally, the architect proposed a more subdued design for the building, which was to be framed with a dark, modern-looking steel exoskeleton. Board members rejected the plans on Dec. 7 as being too boring.

The new design calls for a multi-color exoskeleton, with additional lighting and framing. UDRB members were taken with the flashier design, and voted to recommend approval on Dec. 21.
