Construction Permit Issued Friday For 40-Story Tower At Miami Worldcenter

Miami’s Building Department issued a construction permit on Friday for another 40-story tower at Miami Worldcenter.

The tower will be the second at the Caoba block of Miami Worldcenter.

The plans were first submitted in 2017. It was essentially approved by the Building Department in 2018, and was waiting for the developer to request issuance until now.

Caoba’s second tower will include:

  • 411 apartments
  • 4,103 square feet of ground floor retail

There won’t be any new parking or pool deck, as the tower shares a podium and garage with the first Caoba tower.

The new tower will rise 413 feet. By comparison, the existing 43-story Caoba tower is 442 feet.

Cohen Freedman Encinosa is the architect, as with the first tower.

Kaufmann Lynn is listed as the general contractor that pulled the permit on December 17.

Previously, Coastal Tishman was shown as the general contractor on the permit.

No. He/she is right. Other than Paramount, its turned out NOTHING like the hyped up promo videos with the mall and the fountains and the glitz and glamour. It IS disappointing.

He’s not whining. The comment is right on point. Tge place is BORING and has not lived up to the hype. Marriott—gone. Hines—gone. The Mall with Macys and Bloomingdale’s—gone. With the exception of Paramount(gorgeous), the other 3 buildings suck. Especially the little hotel with the kiddie erasers as art.

It’s been quite a while since the 2nd tower was permitted for construction. If anything, all we need is a starting date for vertical construction and it’s good to go.

Why not the same height? Maximize units while you can.
