Over the past week or so I've had the fun of attending two particularly big grand openings for two big development projects in Brickell: Brickell City Centre and SLS Brickell. They were thrown by two of Miami's biggest developers, Related and Swire, eager to show off their fanciest. flashiest. latest, and largest new projects.
As the market cools and we're seeing a flurry of condo tower cancelations or 'on hold's, we're also seeing a flurry of buildings topping off or being completed. Paraiso Bay, the first of four towers in the Paraiso District to begin construction, has reached its full height and has just topped off, according to the Related Group.
The luxurious Brickell Flatiron had all of us from Miami Condo Investments over for chicken sandwiches and almond pastries today, and to give us a looksie around the project and an update on construction and sales. Construction is happening.
