Swire turns 200 at Brickell City Centre: PHOTOS
Swire, the parent company of Swire Properties, turned 200 years old last month and celebrated with a bash at Brickell City Centre’s East, Miami hotel.
The Hong Kong-based developer has been in South Florida for close to 40 years, and is largely responsible for developing Brickell Key. Swire Properties President Stephen Owens, who will retire next year, reflected on his time in Miami at a real estate panel in June, where he talked about the several real estate cycles he’s spent in Miami.
Now, Swire Properties is focused on completing Brickell City Centre, a $1.05-billion mixed-use development in the heart of Brickell. The project just announced new tenants for the 500,000-square-foot retail component, which is set to open in November. All-in-all, it includes the 40-story East, Miami hotel, two residential towers Rise and Reach, two mid-rise office buildings and the retail. – Katherine Kallergis and Sean Stewart-Muniz
Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly said that Swire Properties turned 200. Swire, its parent company, is now 200 years old.
