TBT (March 26, 2015) - This house built in 1920 was located behind Tobacco Road and was used as a rental. After Tobacco Road was demolished in November 2014, this house was torn down soon afterwards in the Spring of 2015. Soon to rise in this spot will be the Brickell City Centre expansion where a 54 story and 62 story condo will be built.
Located at 622 South Miami Avenue, this house was built in 1920 next to Tobacco Road, when the bar was only eight years old. The house is 1,389 square feet and was built 10 years after the original building it's associated with, which is currently used as a frame store.
The building and land was purchased in March 2014 by Columbian developer Carlos Mattos who also purchased Tobacco Road.
The house was used as rental units until it was cleared out last October and finally was torn down at the beginning of 2015.
The surrounding buildings including River Oyster Bar and Restaurant are expected to be demolished later this year.
