Construction Is Now Underway At Royal Caribbean’s Global Headquarters In Miami, Will House 4,200 Employees

A newly taken photo shows that Royal Caribbean has commenced work on a massive office complex at PortMiami.

Around 4,200 employees will be based in the new state-of-the-art campus, from where the company’s global operation will be overseen.

By comparison, the 60-story, 1121-foot Comcast Technology Center tower opened in Philadelphia last year, which will house 4,000 company employees.

The Royal Caribbean campus includes a 10-story, 350,000 square-foot building designed to look like a ship at rest. There will also be a 1,500-space parking garage.

RCL wants to be able to attract the best talent from around the country, and is building a long list of amenities as a draw. Employees will have access to a soccer field, volleyball court, basketball court, and fitness center.

Sustainable design is a priority of the company and its architects. Landscaping will be comprised of indigenous flora, while the parking garage will be outfitted with electric car chargers, photovoltaic cells, and rainwater collectors.

HOK is the architect, with Plaza Construction the contractor.

Don’t think the comment is regarding the terminals…Carnival and NCL are both Headquartered here and they are in Awful Suburban Campuses with minimal amenities. If RCCL’s intent is to draw in top talent, a great Workplace is just what they need.
RCCL is the first of the bunch to Focus on Employee environment…Kudos!

Are they planning on building apartment buildings as well?? 1500 parking spaces for 4000 employes is not enough parking… or do they offer free transportation for employes?

At the moment, they have free employee shuttles from the Overtown metrorail station. I’ve seen them before. Not sure if they have them from other locations. Employees in downtown or Brickell can also take the free City of Miami trolley which has a stop in front of their offices. Plus, I don’t think they’re tearing down their current employee garage.

Sounds like they will need to leave home at 5:am to get to work on time for those needing to commute to port by public transportation.. like Metrorail…Miami trolley….etc. Traffic going to downtown is the pits especially
during rush hour.

Beautiful complex, however, traffic will increase dramatically to from the port once this project is completed.

Yeah man. Anytime we hear about some new project planned for somewhere in Miami, you can be sure somebody will come on this site and complain about traffic.

People, if you don’t wanna live in a growing city, there are plenty places you can move to with nothing but cows and chickens that, trust me, will look the same fifty years from now.

I don’t mind more traffic and a growing city.

But trying to cram the additional traffic over the bridge or through the tunnel to get there seems like a bad idea.

So the other Cruise Lines plans to build new terminals shouldn’t get the same scrutiny from you?

Good for you that you don’t mind MORE TRAFFIC and a GROWING CITY. Guess you live out in the Everglades some where and don’t have to fight all this mess every day.

Yeah man. A growing city should plan for mass transit, instead of more “Lexus” lanes. Ok man.

Just curious, how does a “ship at rest” look different from one that’s moving?

I wonder what the current zoning is for the port? People living downtown would hate to have there view blocked. Lol good idea though.

That would violate the lease the county has with the city. It’s partially the reason why Beckham couldn’t build the stadium there.
