Americaribe and John Moriarty & Associates of Florida have been awarded oversight of vertical construction at the Brickell CityCentre project, an appointment worth approximately $500 million, the South Florida Business Journal reported.
The contractors will operate as a joint venture and be responsible for completing phase 1 of the $1.05 billion, 5.4 million-square-foot project, which is being developed by Swire Properties. Phase 1 will include a luxury shopping center, two residential towers, a hotel, serviced apartments, a wellness center and Class A office space, all scheduled for completion by the fourth quarter of 2015.
“It was important for us to select a team that delivered the most competitive schedule and met Swire’s high standards for Brickell CityCentre,” Christopher Gandolfo, Swire Properties’ senior vice president of development, said in a statement. “We believe this team, which brought together the best resources of two well-respected companies will build a project that will redefine urban living in Miami for decades to come.” [SFBJ] —Christopher Cameron
