100-Story Supertall Waldorf Astoria Tower Has Already Sold Hundreds Of Millions Worth Of Condos

The 100-story Waldorf Astoria supertall planned in Miami is off to an extremely strong start, according to one of the project’s developers

There have been “hundreds and hundreds of millions of sales,” according to PMG managing partner Ryan Shear.

Shear made the comment in a video uploaded to Instagram by broker Fredrik Eklund, who was visiting the project’s new sales gallery last week.

The Waldorf Astoria is planned to rise 1,041 feet above ground, or 1,049 feet above sea level. That is taller than any other building in Miami by nearly 200 feet.

A total of 400 condos and a 205 key hotel are planned, with the condos expected to have a sellout value of $1 billion.

The tower will include nine glass cubes. The lower three cubes of the tower will have hotel rooms, with the upper six cubes to include condos.

A giant model of the tower was nearing completion last week.

There is also a giant virtual wall in the sales gallery that shows buyers the view from their new supertall condos.

I hope Skyrise gets built. I wasn’t a fan of it at first but I actually like it a lot now. I just hope it will happen. There hasn’t been any movement at the site though.

“There hasn’t been any movement at the site though”.. good!

Developers are always bringing their wacky designed ideas for a structure to Miami because a lot of these newcomers don’t know what taste is and really don’t have any.

I think I’m starting to see a trend, more glass buildings. I hope I’m right, I hate seeing a few windows with blank stucco walls!

This “trend” should have started YEARS ago before the skyline got ruined with ugly buildings. They are now starting to get with the times.

Youi believe this BS? The again, you also think balconies are ugly and have no use on a hi-end residential bldg in South Florida, so you likely do.

There are balconies! They are just incorporated elegantly. Plans here – https://www.waldorfastoriadowntown.com/floor-plans

Some middle units even have “French balconies” lol

not all balconies are ugly.
Some are almost not noticable. Depends on what the building is made of and the balcony as well.

As long as residents don’t hang crap from them (towels, laundry, plants etc)

Everyone is bitching about the cube design and how it’s been done before in other cities…well I didn’t know you can have a minimum of a certain type of design! Other cities have it now we do so get over it! Other cities have observation wheels should another city not have one because other cities have it?! Just be thankful it’s not another rectangle with balconies and gray stucco!

So because some other city have it, that means Miami should have one that looks like it? Do others have the right to desire something other than a copycat?

(crickets)… they can only do so much with a building. Walls, glass, balconies, etc.

Well I guess when we look at the skylines in places like Hong Kong and Dubai, those architects could “only do so much” designing a building.

There are truly, truly a lot of dumbass people living in Miami now.

This is a great move for Miami. In retirement, my grandfather had an apartment in the Waldorf-Astoria and because he had all his meals at the hotel he became friends with Chef OSCAR…..inventor of the Waldorf Salad, etc. Even though Oscar was the ultimate foodie of his era, Grandfather Gordon introduced him to an item he had never tried: Breakfast Baked Beans. Oscar put them on the Waldorf’s menu as “BAKED BEANS A LA DOCTOR GORDON”…..and the first time I was in NYC in the 1970s, they were still on the menu. But a few years later, the menu was redone and grandfather’s beans disappeared

The pic version seems to be a silvery glass look while the actual mock up seems to be black.
Hopefully the lighter silver… otherwise it will be hot as ___ when the sun cooks that building and the AC runs full time and gets nowhere.

Dumbest idea. A supertall in south Florida will have neg environmental impact, will have to be evacuated even in minor hurricanes, expect constant wind water and mechanical problems. I’m sure the developer and builder will cut corners so that ‘millions will sell’ quickly.

Guess you would build outwards – aka Urban Sprawl and fill the everglades and build more highways to get those people around.

They have accepted deposits for the apartments.
Technically, nothing is sold until there is a closing.

But in practice, most people say “sold out” when a the property is no longer available for sale.

If they have taken a deposit for unit #4515 two weeks ago and you walked into their sales center today, they will not sell you unit #4515…because it has already been “sold”. See how that works?

That is one nice tower, if it had been designed 20 years ago. Now there are dozens of stacked block buildings around the world. Not as impressive. For Miami’s tallest and first supertall tower, they missed the mark on what could have been the opportunity for a real iconic tower.
Not this one.

They’re dozens of red brick buildings around the world, but that doesn’t stop people from building them. Miami has been trying to break the 1000 feet psychological barrier for years. This building can start a trend of more well designed supertowers in Miami. Let us win a little.

There are dozens of “red brick buildings” around the world but at the height 1000ft and over?.. name one and in what city. The poster is right if they insist on building it that way, what a missed “opportunity for a real iconic tower.”

I never said there were 1000 ft brick buildings. The point I was making is that many cities have buildings that are designed similarly if not the exact same. We should get a nice supertall tower too, even if the design isn’t entirely original.

^ Look, if you’re going to make a statement, at least try to keep up. Now, you said “They’re dozens of red brick buildings around the world,” and I replied with this to your comment “There are dozens of “red brick buildings” around the world but at the height 1000ft and over?.. name one and in what city. You expressed your point and I expressed my point with a question.

Now, answer my question:

Name one 1000ft and over red brick building and what city is it in?

What does it matter, Einstein? This is not a 1000 foot “red brick building” it is ALL GLASS. And it is very unique to Miami because there is not 1 building in the city that has glass cubes rising over 1000 foot.

This building design was drawn at least as early as 2015 when I first saw the offerings. It took a long while to get X done and get the Waldorf going.
It looked beautiful then, it looks beautiful now, it will look beautiful when opened, and beautiful for many years to come.
