Concept Project: One Fifth, With 1,100-Foot Towers Just South Of Worldcenter

Architect MKDA created a three tower concept project on downtown Miami’s Central Baptist Church property.

According to the architect’s website:

The concepts and renderings MKDA designed for One Fifth, a 4.2 million-square-foot mixed use property in Miami, were meant to position a development opportunity. MKDA created an iconic building, the tallest in Miami, at a central site just south of the new Miami World Center and west of the new high-speed train. The three-tower property is 4 million square feet and 11,000 feet tall [sic]. It’s mixed-use with two hotels, three residential towers, retail and office space. The first 8 floors are retail and floors 9-22 are office. The smaller tower has residential space above the office space, while the other two towers have hotel and residential space above the office space. There are three sky lobbies as well. MKDA completed the concepts and renderings which will be used to get funding. An historic church on the site is an asset.

The Central Baptist Church is located at 500 Northeast 1st Avenue. It was built in 1925, and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.
