Swire, the Brickell City Centre Developer, Proposes Mega-Project for Brickell Key Island
Swire Properties, Brickell City Centre Developer, proposes a mixed-use project for Brickell Key Island.
I have lived in this luxury paradise island a/k/a Brickell Key Island since 1998 so this mega project is happening in my backyard.
For those not familiar with Miami, Brickell Key Island is a man-made island off the popular Brickell Avenue just south of Downtown Miami. Originally, this private island was called Claughton Island but the locals started calling it Brickell Key Island and it stuck.
Swire Properties wants to build a mix of residential and commercial spaces in Brickell Key. The proposed mega project would be built on the southern tip of the island just behind the world famous 5-star Mandarin Oriental Hotel located on Brickell Key Island overlooking Biscayne Boulevard Bay.
I have mixed feelings about this project and I will tell you why. Today, the proposed site is home to a lovely park overlooking the Biscayne Bay were my kids and dog have spent countless hours and years. This island park is also where we held multiple parties for my two young boys. I still remember all their birthday parties with countless themes from animal farms, choo-choo trains, magicians, story-tellers, bounce houses and even elephant rides. Yes, you heard me right, my kids got to ride an elephant at the island park.
According to sources, Swire Properties would build 650 high-end luxury residential condos, offices, retail and restaurant space, and a linear pedestrian park so residents and guest can walk around Brickell Key Island. The project goes for City of Miami approval in October.
