100-Story Waldorf Supertall Submitted To The FAA At 1,040 Feet As Sales Center Nears Completion

The 100-story Waldorf Astoria Hotel & Residences has been submitted to the Federal Aviation Administration for review.

New photos also show that a sales center for the tower is nearing completion.

According to the FAA filing on February 23, the tower will rise 1,040 feet above ground, or 1049 feet above sea level.

No other tower in Miami is anywhere near that height. The current tallest is the 85-story Panorama Tower, at 868 feet above ground.

The 1,049-foot height proposed for the Waldorf the tallest permitted by aviation rules anywhere in Miami due to the location and angle of Miami International Airport’s runways.

The developers were granted approval for the 1,049-foot height on the same site in 2015, but that approval has expired.

The Waldorf Astoria will include a total of 400 condos and 205 hotel keys. The condos will have a sellout value of $1 billion.

PMG and Greybrook Realty Partners are the developers.

Game changer

Every time I see a clunky or brutalist design, I’m tempted to re-read Tom Wolfe’s “From Bauhaus to Our House.” Nice to know that much of our “modern high-rise box projects have their design roots in goals for proletarian housing projects.

And if built by Tibor Hollo, the same quality of proletarian housing projects!

False. Modern residential high-rises have their roots in Le Corbusier. The communists adopted the “garden apartments” aspect of Bauhaus after invading Germany at the end of World War II because fitting a lot of people in an area without increasing density so much propagated the Marxist idea making the city and countryside indistinguishable. In the end, it’s terrible urban planning as it also discourages mixed uses, walkability, and social interaction.

Who will buy knowing that another tower will be soon developed on the Holliday Inn site next door , blocking the views to the North?

Why do some people like you think that views are the only selling point when buying in an area?

Why do people spend SO much money merely to look into their neighbors’ homes and offices or the ugly tops of hundreds of buildings below them? I worked in Chicago’s Aon tower for many years. I know what I’m talking about as it relates to 65th and 78th floor “views.” And let’s not forget being in the clouds/fog for many days at a time…

Dude, all you did was express what irritates YOU. Now, again, what make you think views are the only selling point that developers use or makes people buy concerning an area?

The Miami lux market demands views. Just because you’re happy staring into the back of a Circle K for $1200/mo doesn’t mean jack to this market. Deal with it.

If views were the only selling point for developers and tall buildings keep them from building them, then Manhattan in NYC should be nothing but a town of one story buildings. So argument “doesn’t mean jack to this market!”

Agreed, probably the units facing north or west will be priced a lot lower than those facing east.

The first 40 floor facing south will.also be blocked by Vizcayne Towers…interesting!!

Let.the broker game begin!!

A similar tower is proposed for the booming 4th largest metropolis in North America. That is in Toronto ,the financial and high tech behemoth that is emerging as a true cosmopolitan world city. There is a two tower monstrosity that hopefully will at least be partially redesigned. Something is missing . Rise up people of Miami and Toronto and insist on better architecture.

The same tower exists now in Jersey City just west of Manhattan. Or, am it getting it confused with the same tower Arquitectonica copied? There is very little new design in today’s coffee table sketches.

I’m sorry folks but this building is NOT pretty. Its not even interesting. In fact it appears to be assembled from shipping containers, and it looks structurally compromised!
Its design would look more at home in Stockholm than Florida.
Were talking Miami for goodness sake. A city of unique style.
Miami deserves something actually stunning & beautiful. And this system of glass clad stacked shipping containers is anything but.

It sort of reminds of me of the proposed 1 southside park project in Brickell.. except I’ll take the 1 southside park design any day over this design.

Terribly ugly and copied design that will date itself rapidly. Another example proving that money and taste often do not go hand in hand. Surely the Miami Planning Commission can demand better.
