‘Futuristic Diagrid’ Office Tower Coming To Worldcenter

Downtown Miami’s biggest new office tower in years will soon break ground at Miami Worldcenter, according to the Herald.

The 45-story tower will include 600,000 square feet of Class A office space. The exterior will have a “futuristic diagrid structure.” High street retail will be located on the ground floor.

Hines, which has $96.5 billion in assets under management globally, has been working on plans for the project at 110 Northeast 10th Street over the last year. The company cited Miami’s strengthening office market and the property’s access to transit in announcing the project.

Pickard Chilton Associates of Connecticut is the architect after winning a design competition.

Groundbreaking is set for the second quarter of 2018, with completion in late 2020 or early 2021.

 

Hines developed the Southeast Financial Center in partnership with Southeast Bank:

Do you realize the object is not to have areas outdoing one another, the object is to construct in a way where the areas connect, but each having it own distinct flavor so that people like you won’t get bored with the banal.

So much this

With 1000 Museum and this tower, along with some of the other buildings at MWC, this area will become the most architecturally interesting part of town in a few years. Most buildings in Brickell are a lot more conservative in design than these.

Great design and great news.

I Completely agree with you

This downtown area of beautifully architectural buildings is going to beat out Brickell once they are all completed. I hope Downtown and Brickell go head to head in competition to see who can dish out the most beautiful developments. Only we can win from this competition.

I don’t think developers view the city that way. They don’t take claim for parts of the city and compete with each other that way. They develop where there’s an opportunity to make money. A few of them start doing legacy projects when they start feeling death around the corner.

Developers certainly have an ego to create the best projects…

If you merge Zahas tower with Oppenhiems tower you get this!!

1000 MP doesn’t look that impressive in the rendering.

John

The goal of the renderer is to make the new building the focus of the image, not a neighboring building.

Gorgeous design, it’ll be interesting to see if this puts the pressure on Swire to start One BCC!

FH

Beautiful. And Hines is solid, always deliver.

Love love love this building
Where you at Miami Innovation District. I think this city may finally be ready for you

IS the innovation district still a possibility?

Anonymous

Yes, happening. It’s been a sequencing issue, not viability issue. With mega developments literally surround the Miami Innovation District, it only a matter of “when” it happens, not “if” it happens

Love all the development happening downtown… MWC is a catalyst and creating a new neighborhood.

With the nearly expressway + public transportation, it’s a perfect spot for more office towers.

Did I hear ‘Office’ tower? Bring it!!!!!!! and many more pretty please!!

Anonymous

And I’ve read in another website that it’s going to have a decent amount of retail in the street frontage… this is great. We have enough condos. More of this please!!

“We have enough condos.”

Condos are just dwellings for people to live in, nothing more, nothing less, just like a home in a suburban neighborhood.

So what do you have against condos?

Anonymous

Nothing, I own two in Brickell, but we’re messing our downtown with too many condos. We already have enough density. Brickell is getting overcrowded with dog poop. Hotels are good as they will bring tourism, but we already have a lot of locals living downtown. Condos are taking prime spots that should be for offices. If we want big companies to seroiusly consider moving down here, we need a lot more office towers. Without that Miami will remain a low wage city forever.

So you didn’t have a problem with the amount of condos being built downtown when you purchased YOUR condos, but all of a sudden downtown, in your opinion, is being messed up because you see too many condos being built and too many people are taking the same advantage you did by buying a condo in the downtown area.

Ever heard of the term “hypocrite.”

Anonymous

Oh man stop it already.. you obviously don’t get it. There’s absolutely nothing “hypocrite” in what I said, and everything I said makes perfect sense. Me owning condos in Brickell has nothing to do with me thinking we should have more office buildings instead of new condos. No need to be an arse because you can’t afford one. I kicked my butt in order to buy the first, and then again to buy the second. Brickell is not supposed to be affordable, it’s waterfront properties in Miami, one of the most sought-after cities in the world. And I’m glad haters like you can’t afford to live close to me.

So now you’ve went from “but we’re messing our downtown with too many condos” to trying to insult someone you know nothing about. You talk like an insolent little child who needs to demean people in order to make yourself feel important. Downtown and the Brickell area is not yours, so stop talking as if the city must cater to you or your ilk. Grow up, move over, or pack up and leave the city if you can’t stand the idea of more people wanting to live in your little personal paradise. And for your information, I own a home, and I’m old enough to remember when Brickell had no buildings taller than ten stories…Ok, you little arse?!

Thats the right side of the City to build …… cover all those empty lots with a lot of room for futuristic innovation !!!! A+

I’m with you…and man do we have a lot of empty lots to fill.

Looks great! The next cycle will be class A office and will take Miami to new heights.

Leonardo

MWC will look so amazing especially with the signature bridge next to it. Just imagine how cool the area will look like once it’s all done. Plus Miami Central station just blocks away and let’s not forget the Innovation district that is right next to this. The innovation plan isn’t dead yet hope they can build their signature tower cause it looks very futuristic especially with the digital billboard on the side. Wow just so cool thinking how all of this will look in the near future.

Miami1

Wow!!!

I’m glad this is going on the North part of MWC as it seems. I was worried from the MWC final renders that nothing will be on the North side. This architecture and size is perfect. Beautiful building.

Anonymous

And if Miami innovation district also gets done, it will look even more amazing coming eastward from the West/North West.

Anonymous

Is that still a possibility? Or dead in the water?

Anonymous

It’s not dead in the water, there were recent articles on here that the developer of Miami innovation district was still full steam ahead with the project. It’s his land and the last article I believe said was clearing the area.

OMG…Park West is becoming Florida’s Dubai.

Utterly ridiculous, obviously you’ve not been to Dubai.

Beautiful design and a good location.. very accessible will make it easy to lease.

Fredric

An office building! Yesss!! And a pretty tall one at that. THIS is what Miami needs more of because it has enough super-luxury condo towers for a while now and enough proposed mixed-use buildings (10% office, 30% hotel rooms and 60% condos). I don’t mind seeing more rental apartment towers and I’d like to see a lot more office space, the taller the buildings the better

Polo

Great looking tower and close to 700 FT!

Looks amazing! Let’s build it!

Love love love this building and what’s going on in the area! Where exactly is this – right where the Paramount World Center’s sales center is today?

gonna lure business to the new chinese office building so that the professionals can be stuck in traffic everyday(bad mass transit),send their kids to bad public schools(add fee for private school here),lower wage scale for similar work found in other metropolitan areas,a pay for play,3rd world style city commision..etc..miami seems to be putting the cart before the horse in trying to be the next great american city..just because you build and over priced market based priced office space does not necessarily mean companies will come..look at shitholes like cleveland and detroit who are having a bit of an urban renewal-it comes from the cheaper spaces enabling the start-up company

The real jewel will be the casino when built at the Hearld site…hope the new buildings leave room for more retail
