Eastern National Bank Vacates Office Building Where Brickell City Centre’s Second Phase Is Planned

An office building that sits on the future site of One Brickell City Centre has been vacated by Eastern National Bank

Brickell City Centre developer Swire Properties purchased the 197,611 square foot office building from Eastern National in 2011 for just $13.1 million. The bank moved from the building, located at 799 Brickell Plaza, in mid-May.

Next door, Swire also owns the former Miami Today headquarters, which has already been demolished, and another office building currently being used as a sales center for condos at Brickell City Centre. The properties will be combined to become the site of the 1,049 One Brickell City Centre mixed-use tower.


I don’t understand the excitement for this tower. It’s ok, but it’s nothing great. If this were planned for the site of 2 WTC or One Vanderbilt, I’d be really disappointed .

A bit older, but this angle is great. This complex is huge. Can’t wait for the supertall phase to come.

One Brickell City Centre Supertall Approved, Groundbreaking Early 2023

Get ready for Miami’s first-ever supertall office tower.

City commissioners voted unanimously today to approve expanded floor plates needed to build the 1,049-foot One Brickell City Centre, in a second and final reading.

Approval today came just a week after a commissioner demanded more information on a deal to build a new fire station at Brickell City Centre, delaying a vote.

Floorplates in the 80-story building will be the largest ever built in the city.

In a statement released following the vote, a representative for One Brickell City Centre said that construction will begin in early 2023.

Demolition permits will be filed in the coming months, the representative added.

“One Brickell City Centre will be the most dynamic office building in the city,” the statement said.

The commission vote to approve the expanded floor plate size “will enable the world’s leading companies to foster greater collaboration and connectivity among their employees,” according to the developers.

The developers have previously said the project will have 1.6 million square feet of Class A office space.

Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross’ Related Companies is partnering with Hong Kong-based Swire Properties to develop the project.
