Swire Properties is giving a $520 million contract for the first phase of a mixed-use Miami project to Americaribe, the subsidiary of French construction company Bouygues Batiment International, and John Moriarty & Associates of Florida.

The planned Brickell CityCentre will have about 5.4 million square feet, spanning South Miami Avenue from Eighth to Sixth streets; the first phase includes a luxury shopping center, two residential towers, a hotel, apartments and offices, which all should be completed in the fourth quarter of 2015, National Real Estate Investor reported.

“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’s 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.” [NREI] — Melanie Gray
