Related Cos., Swire File Design For Miami’s Largest Office Building

The Related Cos. and Swire Properties filed detailed designs with Miami officials for South Florida’s largest office building.

The developers revealed plans for One Brickell City Centre, on the east side of the Brickell City Centre mixed-use project, in June. The new tower would replace the office building fronting Brickell Avenue between Southeast Seventh Street and Southeast Eighth Street. Since city officials approved the change to the special area plan for Brickell City Centre a few months ago, the developers recently filed a detailed site plan with the city, providing a closer look at the building.

Jordan Bargas, senior VP in Related Cos.’ new Miami office, said the 68-story One Brickell City Centre would have 1.5 million square feet of office space and rise nearly 1,000 feet. It would have the largest office floor plates of any building in downtown Miami or Brickell, he said, with 50,000-square-foot floor plates on the floors above the parking podium. On the narrower section of the tower, the floor plates would average 32,000 square feet. The ceiling height would range from 15 to 19 feet.

“Companies can house a large number of staff on the same level, instead of on multiple floors, which is a huge benefit, in terms of collaboration and working together,” said David Martin, Swire’s VP of leasing for One Brickell City Centre. “This sort of product doesn’t exist in Miami now.”
