429-Unit Rental Project Planned At Miami Worldcenter

While sales are already underway for a condo tower at Miami Worldcenter, a second residential tower is being planned as a rental tower.

Plans for the 47-story ‘Tower 1’ at Miami Worldcenter show that the high-rise would include 429 apartments. Units would be relatively small, ranging in size from a 743-square-foot studio to a 1,188-square foot 2-bedroom apartment.

Tower 1 will be built across from the 600 Biscayne parcel, which includes the Freedom Tower. FEC’s rail spur to the port runs behind the property.

Parking would be provided on the lower levels, but the small footprint of the tower means that just 130 parking spaces will be built within the structure (thousands of spaces are being built for the Mall at Miami Worldcenter, which will be connected.) Residents will likely make heavy use of the nearby metromover station, which will have it’s canopy modified by Worldcenter (subject to Dade Transit approval.)

A leasing office, bar, lounge and fitness center are planned on the fifth level. An outdoor pool and other amenities are planned on the same level, atop a parking podium.

ADD Inc. is the architect of the rental tower, while Elkus Manfedi is designing the rest of Worldcenter’s first phase.

that is the worst rendering of the Freedom Tower that I’ve ever seen. bad renders are one thing but this is all most offensive.

Are 1980s back in fashion? That is one butt ugly building.

I am being completely serious and honest.

This building looks crappy. Looking at the building and Bloomingdales rendering, I thought of the 80s.

Elkus Manfredi could do better.

Any highrise rental buildings built in this development and anywhere else in the surrounding area should have no problem staying packed.

I had a feeling this one was going to be a rental based on the previous renderings. Great for the neighborhood and the middle class. I’m wondering if the same will happen with ‘North Squared’ in BCC based on the slow sales of ‘Rise’.

This is going to make Park West the best neighborhood downtown. It’s mind blowing to imagine the multi-billion dollar transformation that is taking place! The cultural center of Miami comes alive!!
The neysayers could only dream of living here!

I really don’t cheer about what the building looks like, its a rental in an blighted area of downtown i’m happy just because of that.

Very ugly and nothing like the one in the rendering.
What happened? I was looking forward to this building and was even considering it as my future home.
Not anymore.

I am afraid that Paramount Miami won’t be built in this cycle. Prices are too high for a luxury building without views in this area. You need cheaper rental buildings like this one unfortunately…

Paramount is breaking ground this month. There are unobstructed views on 3 sides. It’s funny how smart people with money don’t have any problem recognizing the prime location of Park West – it’s a no brainer.
That’s why billions of dollars are pouring in this neighborhood.

Miami World Center will break ground, not Paramount… And those present views will be gone after a couple of years…

The views on 3 sides won’t change (world center for 2 blocks on each side and low lying Nap center behind).
So great open city views.
It’s a luxury neighborhood – you don’t understand it – people like you said 1000 Museum would never happen.
Again – you have to be smart and have money to understand.

I am smart enough to avoid spending 700k facing west “unobstructed views” of Space and the I95… You have way better deals in resales and other preconstruction projects. I am not saying it won’t be built… It just won’t happen in this cycle… It’s still full of homeless people unfortunately. Visit the area please.

Best neighborhood in downtown.
I’m not sure why you’re spreading lies and misinformation – perhaps a competing project?
Paramount is breaking ground – site prep to start this month.

Who is the GC signed to break ground next month?
They havent paid broker comissions yet correct?
Doubt they have the required sales to get a loan.
I think at $700 a sft buyers would expect waterviews and not the railings of Marina Blue or the back of Grosskoffs bldgs.
Doubt they will start Paramount next month…it will be a diservice to sales to really see where the bldg is located.
