Hong Kong Tatler Homes - - FRONT PAGE -

Hong Kong de­vel­oper Swire Prop­er­ties is de­vel­op­ing Mi­ami’s largest pri­vate sec­tor con­struc­tion scheme, Brick­ell City Cen­tre (BCC). To date, 20 in­vestors from Hong Kong and Main­land China have bought homes at the US$1.05 bil­lion down­town scheme.

With two res­i­den­tial tow­ers, two of­fice tow­ers, one shop­ping mall and a ho­tel with res­i­dences, the 4.9 mil­lion square foot de­vel­op­ment oc­cu­pies three city blocks. It is a clas­sic ex­am­ple of com­bin­ing dif­fer­ent build­ing uses to cre­ate a com­mu­nity that will have life through­out the week, not only dur­ing of­fice hours or at week­ends.

To link BCC’s build­ings and cre­ate that sense of a sin­gle, uni­fied place, the de­vel­oper has built in­ter­con­nect­ing glass, steel and fab­ric-cov­ered walk­ways to shel­ter peo­ple from the sun and rain. This trade­marked “cli­mate rib­bon” con­struc­tion is even de­signed to pro­duce a light breeze to keep pedes­tri­ans cool on hot days.

“Swire’s vi­sion of cre­at­ing long-term value by trans­form­ing ur­ban ar­eas and sup­port­ing lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties comes to life with Brick­ell City Cen­tre,” says Kieran Bow­ers, US head of Swire Prop­er­ties.

Com­pleted in 2016, the scheme’s two con­do­minium res­i­den­tial tow­ers are both 43 storeys tall. They have 390 apart­ments and pent­houses rang­ing from one to four bed­rooms. The most ex­pen­sive home cur­rently on sale is a 1,839sqft three-bed­room apart­ment priced at US$1.57 mil­lion.
