A ground-breaking ceremony is set to take place on Wednesday for the $1.05 billion
mixed-use complex known as the Brickell CitiCentre which has been purchased by
Swire Properties — one of South Florida’s prime urban real estate developers today.
The ceremony will be taking place along South Miami Avenue where people can

The development project is set to cover three blocks located west of Brickell Avenue
and south of the Miami River. The 5 million square development will feature luxury
retail stores, a hotel, office spaces, two residential condominium towers, a wellness
center, dining establishments, and a department store.
Swire Properties stands firm in its belief that the development of Brickell CitiCentre

Such a superb location will definitely bring about substantial results for the city. In

made available during the construction and even after the construction is complete.
Another feature that the Brickell CitiCentre is expected to have is a metro-mover that
will be built running through the third floor of the infrastructure which will be placed

The city of Miami is definitely moving on to becoming more than just a region known

recognized as being one of the most complete metropolitan cities within the United
