New plans have been submitted for the Brickell Gateway tower, which would make it one of the tallest apartment projects in the city.
Israeli developer Gazit Horizons sent the plans to the county on June 3, requesting a review of the site plan.
According to the latest plans, Gazit’s new tower at 90 Southwest 8th Street will now rise to 61 stories and 747 feet.
Brickell Gateway is now proposed to include:
- 504 multi-family residential units
- 18,287 square feet of retail space
- 348 parking spaces
In a letter to zoning officials, the developer said pedestrians and cyclists are a priority in the design:
The project pays particular attention to improving the pedestrian experience in the publicly accessible areas surrounding the property. The owner offers significantly improved landscaping by buffering a wide pedestrian walkway on both frontages to accommodate Underline users passing through this “gateway” into the heart of Brickell. Several bike racks will be placed along the edges of the promenade so that cyclists can park easily. New street trees will provide a shady and pleasant experience for strolling on both sides and exploring the neighborhood. Finally, outdoor terraces on the ground floor are proposed along SW 8th Street to further activate this artery.
Atlantic Pacific Communities is also included in the established plan as a co-developer.
Corwil is the architect.
A pre-application meeting between examiners and sponsor representatives is scheduled for June 30.
