ArquitectonicaGEO is working with Swire Properties and Arquitectonica on Brickell CitiCentre, a three and a half block downtown redevelopment which aims to create an urban gathering place for downtown Miami. The 4.6 million square foot mixed-use project will consist of four-levels of retail and entertainment supporting hotel, office, and residential towers. The landscape will be anchored by improved downtown streetscapes which lead to landscaped public courtyards, pedestrian passages, gathering, and performance spaces.
The project is seeking LEED ND certification and will be the first major project to be implemented under the Miami 21 zoning ordinance. As such, we are pushing the boundaries of sustainable tropical urbanism, seeking to create public spaces which support a thriving urban social environment while being sensitive to the natural environment. Linking with the surrounding streets, and a Miami Dade Transit corridor, the project aims to create an ideal pedestrian environment that accommodates bicycles and automobiles. ArquitectonicaGEO’s streetscape design will set a new high standard for livability and quality of life that will serve as an example for future downtown projects.
