Brickell City Center Pedestrian Bridges

  • LOCATION Miami Florida
  • CLIENT Americaribe Moriarty Joint Venture, (AMJV)
  • CHALLENGE Close-enough-to-touch level of finish quality.

Brickell City Center is a massive 5.4 million square-foot mixed use development in the heart of Miami’s Brickell Financial District. The three lower levels are dominated by a semi-enclose shopping mall that spans three city blocks. US-41 and South Miami Avenue actually pass through the mall, which is also abutted by the 8th Street Metromover station. To tie these three blocks of shopping, dining and entertainment into a single, easily-strolled mall, there are two, double-decker, open-air, pedestrian bridges. These bridges are so broad, and so well integrated into the overall architectural design, is quite possible to cross a busy down-town street without even being aware of it. Part of the success of that integration is due to our ACM cladding that conceals the heavy steel beams supporting the bridges and blends perfectly with the cladding throughout the complex, by both us and other vendors.

Henry was proactive and involved to meet with the Owner and design team during preconstruction as well as during a detailed value engineering effort after project award. Henry was able to react to the demands of the project and meet accelerated detailing and fabrication schedules on a complex project encompassing 3 city blocks and involving 5 buildings and 2 pedestrian bridges. The quality of the work and coordination is reflected in the finished products. Henry’s ability to adjust to the logistics and sequencing of the work on a tight project, often requiring night work and atypical conditions was a key factor in delivering the project. We would not hesitate to recommend Henry for similar work.
