100-Story Waldorf Astoria ‘Might Be One Of Miami’s Fastest-Selling Buildings To Date’

The 100-story Waldorf Astoria Residences is seeing strong demand from condo buyers, according to a broker involved with the sales effort.

Sales at the Waldorf are so strong that the tower might be one of Miami’s fastest selling condo project to date, broker Fredrik Eklund said.

Eklund, who is the star of the Million Dollar Listing New York TV show, is involved with sales at the tower. He made his comments in an interview with Ocean Drive Magazine published yesterday.

Sales at the Waldorf launched earlier this year. By May, developer PMG said there were already hundreds of millions worth of units sold.

The developer said in June that groundbreaking would take place in early 2022.

The Waldorf Astoria Residences will become Miami’s tallest tower ever built, at 1,049 feet above sea level.

Eklund told the magazine that the tower will make a worldwide statement.

“It is 100 stories and you can already see it on the skyline like how you see the Empire State Building and the Eiffel Tower,” he said.

Loft 2 was a billion dollar sell out… great comparison!

One weekend to sell out nearly 500 units equals a higher overall value in one weekend than this building has done in months.

Math may be difficult, but others on this site are willing to help.

Ummmm….
The Loft buildings sold fast, like churros at a street fair. The starting prices where at $95k and “reserved” for school teachers and first responders. Great projects and well done.
This is a 1,000+ luxury tower starting at prices 20x what Loft “towers” entry pricing was.

Yes. Churros are easy to sell. If you are fascinated by units, then maybe Loft is a good comparison.

If you are a developer or a Million Dollar Listing Agent you would count volume as dollar volume not number of units.

a bit underwhelming that the tallest, most significant tower in the city will look like a random, low dexterity kid’s lego tower. Understanding it is a concept and to each it’s own, this tower falls short from an exquisite, elegant, classical yet modern design other sky scrapers around the world carry with them forever.

The next 100 years Miami will have a zig-zagging crooked finger instead as the focal point to its skyline.

Immaculately-said. “Crooked finger,” 100%

fair enough, but let’s be a bit more pragmatic. The buyers get great unit layouts and the Waldorf Astoria brand/image/amenities in a great location in Downtown. So if the picky Waldorf Astoria likes it and the buyers like it, then well it getting built before any other supertall. Now as for the crooked finger, pragmatically s-waking you get either a nice rigid tall middle finger or the crooked one. I take the crooked for now. The other nice on papear designs at this height lose too much valuable unit space, these units are selling at high $sqft.

I agree. It looks like a two year old stacked some blocks. After the Surfside collapse, you couldn’t pay me to live in this, especially that high up.

Your post reminds me of the meeting of Howard Roark and the Board of the bank when he is called in to win the award.
Everyone on this board should have read that book…but if you are ultra lazy…watch the movie.

This will not be a 100-story tower unless someone believes 9′ finished ceilings will sell today.

1040 ft is enough for 10.5 ft floor to floor so 9.5 feet ceilings for 98 floors might be possible. Some floors being shorter could make some be 10 ft or double height penthouses.

Realtors can’t be sued for saying such inaccurate statements, so they always use “fastest,” “best,” and “iconic” since they aren’t actually responsible for proving any of that.

What a “profession.”

The design of this building would be much better suited for a smaller building that fits in line with the other unusually beautiful architecture downtown. But as the singular building that stands taller than the rest, this design does not work. It looks goofy; haphazard. For an incredibly tall building to positively define a city’s skyline, I think it should be smooth, curvilinear elements, more organic, more elegant.

Thank you Anonymous!!!! Your insight has just broken the tie!
“This design does not work”. Awesome insight. With your sage guidance, I am going to chose another building instead…we will choice the Waldorf Astoria that has the “more organic, curvilinear elements”.
Thank you Anonymous!
(DM me and let me know where you are putting the other Waldorf Astoria. Thanks.)

Are they ever going to replace the artwork that came off in the hurricane? These buildings aren’t built very well it seems.
