A deal to swap Miami Riverside Center, located a 444 SW 2nd Ave could go to vote in either August or November of this year, according to Miami Today.

The City of Miami has outgrown the building and is looking to sell the building in return for a developer to build a new office for the City elsewhere. 

Miami Riverside Center was initially for sale in August 2015.

In July 2016, Adler Group won a bid to replace Miami Riverside Center with Nexus Riverside Central, that would have two 36 story rental towers with 900 units, 150 hotel rooms and 20,000 square feet of retail/restaurant space. 

Adler Group also owns 1.6 acres of land next to Miami Riverside Center, which they purchased for $14.25 million in February 2016.

This Was Brickell Key In 1985 - Before & After

The photo on the left is what Brickell Key looked like in 1985 and on the far right you can see the Miami Tower under construction. In 1975 the island was completely empty and barren after developing from dredging of the Miami River. By 1985 one condo had been built on Brickell Key and the Brickell skyline was becoming lined with condos. By 1999, the island had grown even more with more condos, but the Mandarin Oriental was not built yet. The photo on the top right is what Brickell Key and Downtown Miami look like today. Brickell Key is almost fully developed and the Brickell skyline is no longer visible except for the Four Seasons and Icon Brickell.
