The anonymous, rarely-sourced people at exMiami are speculating that, based on recent public filings, the north side of Allen Morris Brickell Park, next to Perricone's, could be developed by either restaurant namesake Joseph Perricone or the Allen Morris Co., which donated and deeded over the park to the City of Miami in 1974. Allen Morris Co. hired lobbyists in October to examine "zoning and variances needed for property located at 25 SE 10 Street"—the address of the park—while Perricone filed a unity of title the month prior to join the two separate sites Perricone's is located on, potentially freeing up one of the sites for development. Perricone's has leased the out the park for over a decade.
Are the two in cahoots to take over the pocket park for condo development? In this feverish real estate market, it's a fair bet. Meanwhile, developer Ugo Colombo has not disclosed the fate of the former south side of the Allen Morris Park, which he seems to have gained control of after purchasing it from developer Mallory Kauderer. That piece was traded to Kauderer for the nearby Brickell Flatiron Park, which is larger and would become a new city park. Confused yet?
