Will A New Development Preserve Brickell’s Flatiron Park?

A few days after the Big Bubble covered the sale of Brickell Flatiron Park, from the developers of the Brickell Flatiron tower behind it to a new, and as yet undisclosed, contingent of investors, the Miami Herald posted their coverage of the sale. In that Herald article, the Big Bubble's concern that the park could be fully developed over, turning what is one of Brickell's few green spaces into a retail development, seems like it may be answered.

Flatiron Park Sold, Will Be Developed Into Shopping

Flatiron Park, a narrow triangle of land in the center of Brickell that I actively followed and promoted as a park back in the good old days when I was the editor of Curbed Miami, has been sold.

I wrote about it back in 2018 on the Big Bubble, and have a hunch I also might have done a write-up on Curbed Miami back in the day, although I can't find that old piece. Either way, it's a treat.

Stately Morningsider, Eclectically Decorated, Hits the Market for $3.4M

This immaculately preserved and restored palazzo in the heart of Morningside, the City of Miami's first historic district, was built in 1926. It hist the market on Sunday for $3,399,000, and in the intervening time it must have had a pretty exciting existence, if the bright and eclectic interior is any evidence. Located at 5600 NE 6th Avenue, the house is in the heart of the neighborhood.
