538-Foot Muze At Met Square Now Complete, First Residents Move In

Get ready for hundreds more residents in downtown Miami, thanks to a newly completed apartment tower.

Muze at Met Square, a 538-foot, 43-story tower, opened this week with 391 rental apartments. The first residents have already moved in.

Pricing in the amenity-packed building appears to be above $3 per square foot.

Construction at the Met Square complex began in June 2015, with an 18-screen Silverspot theater built on the lower floors.

Zom is the developer, and is now in advanced construction permitting to begin work on their next tower, Luma Miami Worldcenter. Miami architect NBWW designed the Muze Met Square tower.

More rentals (that are inhabited by people that presumably live there, as opposed to empty condos serving as investments or secondary homes) being delivered in downtown is a good thing, will continue to generate activity and hopefully lead to a full scale revitalization. downtown has all the potential in the world, but there’s a lot of work to be done

Most of the condos are actually rented out, stop promoting the theme of the last real estate cycle.

The shadow market will struggle tremendously with the new insertion of thousands of rental units this cycle. Here’s a nice and recent write-up on what’s ahead — https://therealdeal.com/miami/issues_articles/oversupply-and-demand/

In complete agreement with the original poster – by definition units created entirely for renting purposes will bring more folks downtown than a condo tower owned by a mix of snowbirds, foreign rich folks that may or may not lease their units. And surely you’ve read about the flight of northeasterners coming down to purchase condos as a tax haven (leaving the condos empty for 6+ months).

Doesn’t factor in the units being rented that don’t have leases filed which is something that is rampant in large urban areas and condos that are air bnb rentals. Also alot of those wealth stashes in condos just want to stash their wealth and some dont even care about keeping their rents are market level and many undercut it. They just wanted to make a little something off of the condo, they still got their initial bunk of their money out of the Northeast or another country.

spoken like someone basing opinions on articles and not actually living there. Condos are full, regardless of who is living them. Lights don’t lie.

The renderings were better..

Yeah, thankfully it’ll be surrounded by giants. It also added to downtown with the theatre and walkable ground floor.

But totally agree, architecturally speaking this seems below average, only slightly easier on the eyes than the Melo towers in the Arts area (love me some Melo overall but those are rough on the eyes)

The latest twin melo tower is better looking than this one. And that movie theater has bad food and drinks.

Haha fair enough (plus, presumably overpriced) but at least the space is forever there. We can hope for a better operator as competition heats up

It looked ugly in the renderings, and it’s ugly in person. Even Monarc across the street looks better, and that’s on of the worst projects this boom if it wasn’t for Whole Foods.

I read this as hundreds more cars pouring onto City streets with no relief in sight. Poor planning on the City.

There should be road diets, bike lanes and expanded sidewalks all throughout downtown.

^ Exactly ! People act like there are no viable transit options downtown.How many other cities in the US offer free transit?

He is so right! Forget mass transit for a second… Miami can’t even get the simple things right! Bike lanes, wide sidewalks like you see in New York. It all promotes riding a bike rather than driving. Wide sidewalks makes you want to walk but those little sidewalks only two people can fit on at a time is ridiculous!!! How can a city be more walkable with no sidewalks to walk on? An the sidewalks that are wide have a sign,palm trees or light pole down the middle of it.

Look, I’ve said this once and I’ll say it again. People in Miami drive like maniacs. You really put your life in danger when riding a bicycle on the streets of Miami. You may obey the rules of the road when riding your bike but there are too many drivers in Miami who don’t giveashit about that.

Um yeah, sure, and pictures taken anywhere in Brickell and Downtown Miami shows just how difficult it is to walk the streets without bumping into so many people.

I mean, where do you people come from?!

The food at silverspot is terrible and the drinks are watery, I hope this building fully complete the mini-museum on the first floor.
