Beautifully designed by Borges + Associates Architects, the new Brickell Mega Center has recently been approved by the Urban Design Review Board for their 12 story development located at 420 SW. 7th St. and 427 SW. 8th St. in the Brickell neighborhood of Miami. This cleverly design project represents the future of the surrounding neighborhood. It will feature an eye-catching building with beautiful art welcoming people off from the Interstate 95 offramp into the world-class Brickell neighborhood.
The review board was swayed by the artfulness of the project and the iconic architecture that it will bring to the neighborhood. It will act as a sort of gateway site into Brickell and Little Havana.
The Megacenter will feature six levels of ministorage, 111 parking spots, street-level commercial and retail space, four levels of boutique office space and eight stories of a multifamily residential tower with 47 units. The land was recently purchased last year for $7.9 million in order to start construction on this unique landmark. With over 45,000 ft.² a residential space, 16,000 ft.² of office space and 9000 ft.² of retail, the architects on the project feel that this will be a welcome addition to this neighborhood.
The mesmerizing art show that will be displayed along the walls of the building is a conceptual design by Miami-based artist ABSTRK however there's no contract yet made with any artist. Reinaldo Borges is the project architect. This building will be a subsidiary of Chile's Red Megacentro. This company offers office, warehouse and self storage space in South America and Miami.
Currently there is a detail hand car wash station, a gas station and abandoned building at the site location. There is currently no word on the start of breaking ground or construction. (Image by Artist Rendering from Curbed Miami)
