50-Story Legacy Miami Worldcenter Ready For Foundation Pour In May

Construction is on schedule at the 50-story Legacy Miami Worldcenter tower, and a foundation pour is scheduled for next month.

The progress update was made in a social media post by One World Properties, the in-house broker for the developer.

The “neo-futuristic” tower broke ground in August 2021.

Site preparation and piling work have both now been completed, One World said.

Over 600 piles were installed, reaching up to 156 feet in the earth.

The next step is a foundation pour, which is scheduled for the end of May.

The 11,000 square foot concrete foundation will require 3,700 cubic yards of concrete.

Can we stop describing it as “neo-futuristic” please. It’s a contemporary glass high rise with Art Deco design flourishes.

Neo-Futuristic would be more like a spiraling skyscraper such as the building in Moscow, or 30 St. Mary Axe.

I think this one could be Iconic (if it was taller)

Wish this beautiful tower was 1,000 feet tall, and fronting Biscayne Blvd.

I think what he/she is trying to say is that they would rather see a 1000 footer designed like this in the forefront of Miami’s skyline than that comical looking Waldorf Astoria tower.

Tell Related and Melo this is how you do a parking pedestal base, and tower for that matter. You can still be cheap and put a crown or spire on something simple, and it’s night and day.

Really cool….but the renderings of the glass top are not realistic because the curved glass faces south and there would be an ENORMOUS heat gain due to the greenhouse effect and there are no HVAC solutions shown or incorporated in the renderings. Typically, these renderings are done at the tail end of the schematic design and before the design development phase so that the marketing team can start to sell. More than likely, they will not develop or update the design further, but it will most definately not be as transparent and look like what is represented.

Not really… he’s right. There will be specialized glass such as low-e glass with reflectivity to cut the UV light, but there will also need to be a lot of air flow which will need a sophisticated HVAC solution which you would see in a rendering. The top is an open atrium and the hot air will rise.

Dude look.. this project will cost not $30, $40, $50, or even $100. This project is a multi, multi million dollar project. So you mean to tell me (and all the other people who reads this article) that after these developers paid architects millions of dollars to design such a building, these same architects will just ignore the professional engineering part of the most glaring and important feature of this entire building and they somehow need experts who read TNM articles to point out what they think are perceived design flaws?

smh…

They will use glazing that will mitigate the heat gain.

If it were up to you, every tower would be a box and every house would look have a hipped roof and look like a 1970s suburban Texas ranch house. Never mind technologies exist to mitigate such issues.
