Five trees have been removed from the former Perricone’s Restauarant site, which was demolished in April of this year to make way for a new 20 story CitizenM Hotel Brickell.

An appeal was filed in July to try and save the trees, but did not come to fruition.

Construction will begin soon on the hotel which will have 252 rooms.

Babylon Apartments Demolished

Babylon Apartments Demolished

After the 5 story Babylon Apartments was demolished at the beginning of July, The Miami City Commissioners voted last week to allow a new building up to 24 stories on the site.

Despite the building being designated historic by Miami’s Preservation Board in July 2016, Miami Commissioners overruled the vote.

The apartment building, designed by Arquitectonica, sat abandoned for many years before being demolished.

TBT - This Was Brickell In 1967 - Before & After

Brickell Today In 2014

TBT (August 28, 2014) - The photo on the top right is what Brickell used to look like in 5 years ago in 2014. Since that time in the same view, Panorama Tower has been built and 1010 Brickell has been built in the parking garage at the bottom. The current spot where the photo is taken is where Brickell Flatiron is currently being completed.

Brickell has changed dramatically since the photo in the top left was taken in 1967. What was once a barren area filled with small houses and low rise apartment buildings has changed into a growing metropolis with many high rises. 

The building on 1000 Brickell remains today, but was once one of the tallest buildings in Brickell and is now dwarfed by the buildings surrounding it. Brickell Key was still just an overgrown island that would not see development until the 1970's and the Four Ambassadors building was just opened.
