100-Story Waldorf Astoria To Begin Sitework In Q4 2021

Miami’s 100-story Waldorf Astoria tower is enjoying strong sales and will soon begin sitework.

According to a social media post from developer PMG, groundwork is now expected to begin the fourth quarter of 2021.

The tower is “selling out fast,” the developer added, in a post that recapped third quarter achievements.

The Waldorf Astoria is set to become Miami’s tallest tower ever at 1,049 feet.

In May, the developer said that there had already been “hundreds of millions” worth of units sold. The building has a full sellout value of $1 billion

In September, a broker said that the condo project might be one of Miami’s fastest selling ever.

Records show that a demolition permit for the site is now moving through the approval process, after being submitted in June. The BG Group is listed as the contractor.

There does not yet appear to be a construction permit pending.

PMG has previously said they expected to break ground in the first quarter of 2022.

It’s more like Urby in Jersey City, which pre-dates and is taller than the Independent Tower in Austin.

Austin is hardly the first city with a “jenga” building. Moscow was probably the first and still has the tallest, but I think this tower will take the title.

Most of the ‘boys’ on here are suspect. They come on here all day long salivating about the length of buildings. Not to mention continuously shouting for more D, er, I mean buildings. Some of them literally say stuff like “yes, more please”. No joke. Their so called wives and girlfriends would be shocked at what they truly like.

first year architecture student design at best. This looks like a cartoon for a design. This is a poor OMA wannabe design…not even Arquitectonica would have suggested this crap.

Sooooo…what you are saying is that you don’t like it.

And, when you buy a few acres in the urban core of Miami to build your 1,000 ft + building, your design will be different.

I’ll be happy with our first supertall but honestly, I’m not thrilled with the design.
Wish this one were as tall as OKAN and OKAN were as tall as this one.

World Trade Center of the Americas was supposed to go there. Otherwise, it’s an eyesore. Okan Tower next to Downtown 5th and the Federal prison or this tower next to a seedy hotel, Vizcayne, and MDC, take your pick.

That new rendering showing the view from the north side of Biscayne makes the tower seem kind of out of place, I’m gonna cross my fingers and hope for the best bc I feel like it’d look better closer to Brickell or SEFC… skylines need good focal points.

Because it’s totally out of place.
Moreover, so many cities have stacked block buildings. Nothing avant garde other than the height

Anonymous

The stacked container look is everywhere on planet earth. There’s nothing unique about this building other than its height. Miami needs to move away from box like and rectangular buildings. Nevertheless I’m happy that it looks like it will be built and I wish them well.

sellouts are a long game, especially for 700,000 saleable sq. ft. Ask Aston Martin.

An unfortunately ugly and bulky building. This will be a blight on our skyline. Designer was just playing with his/her kid’s building blocks for “inspiration”

It would do your commentary undue praise to say that your thoughts on this matter were mimicking your kid’s thoughts as inspiration.

Good news. Projects like this, Waldorf Astoria, Okan, Paramont, Legacy and Aston Martin, one prettier than the other, will leave the legacy of a beautiful Miami skyline. I think the city needs a landmark, a symbol, which could be SkyRise, but the design could be improved as it was much less than the beautiful aesthetics of the buildings I mentioned above. And the Waldorf Astoria is not yet a symbol for Miami. It’s just another building, in fact a beatiful building, but it wouldtn”t be a mark of the city.

Not into boxes stacked on top of each other. Who came up with that? And, I can’t help but ask and some tenants, maybe many tenants, will. Where’s the ocean?

Ronald if you want an ocean, go find a wet place to stick your head in. Not every sky scrapers needs an ocean view, and being artistic is trying new things. If no one in architecture tried new things, you’d be even more upset and depressed with how the world would’ve turned out today. Thank you.
