Another Tower Appears To Be Launching Soon At Miami Worldcenter: The Crosby

It seems that Miami Worldcenter will be getting yet another tower, called The Crosby.

Broker Richard L. Greenfield of Green Group Properties uploaded photos of what appears to be a sales center for the project yesterday.

A scale model is also inside the office, the photos show.

The scale model looks to be just over 30 stories, and does not appear to have a parking garage.

Developers Related Group and Merrimac Ventures recently acquired a parcel at Worldcenter, but haven’t yet publicly revealed plans.

This is the “transformative” new building coming to the lot next to OKAN?

I’ve lost hope believing Miami Worldcenter will deliver anything but basic rental towers from here forward. A shame they can not secure a single commercial tenant and seem to be having trouble securing retail as well.

Seriously sad what this development is shaping up to be. No Hines tower. No convention center. Retail is struggling hard

I guess what baffles me is they continue to bungle opportunities to bolster the development. Just add a restaurant space open to the public to the rooftop level and this building would actually *add something* to MWC. They need to get creative.

Retails in ground floor of that types of buildings struggling a lot everywhere in miami due to lack of character compare with one store buildings. Take example in wynwood. They close one by one. Only for gym or banks are ok. The architects must work harder to find solutions.

if they can’t secure a single commercial tenant , sedanos may open up a supermarket there if the price is right. the design for the new sedanos supermarket is really beautiful

Isn’t a grocery opening up on the ground floor of Natiivo? Literally next door?

Yea I’m sorry but this part of downtown isn’t turning into anything special but at least no more empty lots…

They should honestly rename it. MIAMI WORLDCENTER is starting to sound ridiculous when compared with the reality of what the development has become. It’s some nice rental towers with some light retail.

This is in no way shaping up to be the City Center of Miami.

Hopefully the Park West name catches for the entire area, and the expectations of a “World Center” slowly fade away. Just a regular neighborhood with rental towers and a few retail shops with a promenade.

Exactly. And nothing wrong with that, but this is a classic case of “overpromised and underdelivered”.

Flagler street will be the center of town. People love pedestrians streets. People over cars.

No it won’t thanks to Mana :-/ He just bought the arcade too. There’s no telling how long he’ll hold on to all of these. 10 years? 20?

Unfortunately even that is not true. MDC just repaved their lot next to the freedom tower. Looks like we’ll be continuing to stare at a surface parking lot for another 20 years.

Retailers would rather be in Bayside — check the foot traffic.

Park west is becoming the capital of short stay rentals and AirBnb traffic in MIami. A grouping of rental buildings with transient, and loud kids in their first apt that mommy and daddy from Bogota or Buenos Aires or New York have rented for them. No thanks.

No parking? They’re not building a parking garage and they’re not using the saved money to make the tower look nice?

This isn’t transformative, iconic, or special. This is a cash cow for the developer to build something cheap and cash in on the current real estate hype.

I think they’ve given up on their development and are now just filling in with whatever they can. It sure looks that way!

Retail will continue to struggle with no convention hotel or office space in the pipeline. Another blow was the cancellation of Skyrise which promised to draw big entertainment crowds to downtown. The museums in the area only draw trickles and obviously not enough to justify major restaurants, retail and cafes

Skyrise should remain renderings and never be built.

“Crosby” is short for “crappy and gross balcony placement.”
