On the Eve of Opening, Brickell City Centre Gets Bicycles And Gives Money to the Underline
There’s lots of action happening at the $1.05 billion Brickell City Centre, as the East Miami Hotel gears up for its May 31st opening and sales close at Reach, the megaproject’s first residential tower.
Swire Properties, BCC’s developer, announced today that residents of Reach and Rise Brickell City Centre, the project’s two residential towers, will have complementary access to a fleet of Brickell City Centre-branded house bicycles for jaunts around town. Each building will initially have ten bikes, which will be kept in a designated area near the parking garage. Residents will be able to rent them for unlimited lengths of time, but will be responsible for the bikes while in use. There’s no word yet on whether hotel guests will be provided with bicycle privileges too, but that would make sense.
Swire has also just announced a $600,000 donation to the Underline, Miami’s planned 10-mile linear park underneath the Metrorail, and a perfect place to ride those bikes once completed. As the press release says “The Underline will focus on transforming the space around Miami’s urban infrastructure and is set to be one of the city’s most ambitious projects. ”
“Swire’s donation will be earmarked for the construction of the Brickell portion of The Underline and will seamlessly connect with Swire’s renovation of the Eighth Street Metromover station and surrounding green space, which is located adjacent to the 5.4-million-square foot Brickell City Centre.”
