Now that the situation with the indigenous artifacts being found on the build site has come to a close, Baccarat Residences in Brickell is back on track with construction and sales in full swing. The archaeologists are packing their things and site work should resume in early September, according to our source with the development. Leading up to this date, the developer has released the exclusive Baccarat Penthouse collection with new renderings, floor plans and all of the details.

The Situation With The Artifacts

Before we get into the penthouses, I do want to clear up what happened with the artifacts because we do realize it is a point of contention for many people. Artifacts were found in the earth below the demolished structure that once stood on the property. Related Group did remediate the site, allowing archaeologists to recover what they needed to recover.

The development site has not been deemed a historic site, allowing for construction on Baccarat Residences and the neighboring rental tower that is currently under construction to rise. The third tower of the project, which has not yet been announced, could still be deemed historic at a later date but we will cross this bridge when the time comes. For now, the recovered artifacts are being stored and will be on display for the public to enjoy once the towers are complete.

An Update On Baccarat Residences

While the situation with the artifacts did create a delay in the construction timeline, the residences have continued to sell. Now that there is a more firm timeline and everything is back on track, we expect things to move more quickly in the sales office as well. Currently, there are a handful of the 28 river flats/duplexes available as well as a few of the tower residences remaining.

The river flats are townhome-style duplexes that are in the space closer to the river, wrapping around the parking pedestal and below the amenity deck. These offer a closer view of the water with floor-ceiling glass and 2-story layouts. They are very unique and these types of residences always hold their value very well as there are fewer built. The prices for the river flats and duplexes currently range from $2.3 million for a 1,547 square foot 2 bedroom plus den, up to $5.3 million for a one-of-a-kind 3-bedroom plus den duplex residence.

The tower residences also have limited availability ranging from $2.5 million for a 1 bedroom with a den on the 54th floor to $6 million for a combined residence on the 64th floor with 4 bedrooms. The price per square foot ranges between $1500 per square foot to around $1800 per square foot and all of the residences come with a view of the Miami River and/or the Biscayne Bay.
