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, 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. For the past five or so years, part of the triangle-shaped piece of land was the site of the sales center for Brickell Flatiron, a condo tower which has recently been completely sold out, with the rest being used as a green space with a landscape design by Raymond Jungles.
Brickell Flatiron, the luxury condo tower in Brickell which is shaped somewhat like the famous Flatiron Building in New York, was completed in October of last year, but just received its art collection, which graces its lobby and public spaces.
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.
