43-Story Luma Miami Worldcenter Is Now Under Construction, FAA Approves 500-Foot Height

Miami is getting yet another 500-foot tower (or pretty close to it) – this time, a luxury apartment high rise.

Luma Miami Worldcenter is now under construction, with foundation work for the 43-story building underway.

The tower’s height is also now fully approved. The Federal Aviation Administration granted approval last week for Luma’s height of 493 feet above ground level, or 503 feet above sea level. A tower crane is also authorized to be installed at 599 feet above sea level, or 586 feet above ground.

Work began shortly after developers Zom Living and The Moinian Group secured $143 million in construction financing.

When completed, Luma will include 434 apartments which the developers say will be the highest-end product in Miami.

This area is becoming Brickell 5 years ago in terms of construction.

I agree however, Miami needs to diversify its dependency on service-oriented jobs.

Such as? I don’t think a high-tech manufacturing facility is best use for Downtown Miami land, but perhaps in Allapattah or West Little River.

What about the “Innovation District”?

Listen, I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again. Why does anything built downtown that’s near that ugly designed Skyrise development and won’t be anywhere near it’s height need to go through the FAA approval? That’s just plain stupid and a waste of time!

Skyrise should be replaced with a ferris wheel at least

Skyrise will be an amazing observation tower, definitely better than all the other pointy ones around the world and a wheel, of course…how original.

Correction, it should be 503 FT MSL and 493 FT AGL.

MDC should sell Freedom Tower to be restored and converted to a boutique hotel with condo tower behind sharing the amenities. They’ve been slumlords years even before Mana.

They’ve been slumlords for all their property, they still have surface lots in downtown and haven’t done anything with the old state court house too.

Maybe converted into a museum but not a hotel!

No mention of parking oddly. Definition would be a deal breaker without parking.

MWC is building a public parking garage with high street retail from 1st to the tower. Luma will be using the rooftop for amenities

I hope they don’t build the Marriott there anymore – which is hosting Bolsonaro in NY. He has made antigay comments and Marriott says it stands by its decision to host the event. I assume they would also host White Nazi nationalists too who are antisemites as that fits into their diversity image. Hopefully World Center will end its relationship with Marriott.

Anti-gay comments will fade soon, and the white nationalists are just a momentary trend. The future is inclusive and that’s where we are headed. Let’s put politics aside and route for projects that will make Miami better and better, i.e. the Marriott

We have to wait for the Republicants to leave office to see that kind of civility to come back
