Cranes Now In Place For 100-Story Waldorf Astoria Miami

Two tower cranes are now in place at the construction site of the 100-story Waldorf Astoria Hotel and Residences Miami tower.

The Waldorf Astoria Miami is planned to rise to a supertall height of 100 stories, or 1,038 feet above ground and 1,049 feet above sea level. That is taller than any building ever built in Miami, by far.

The building is planned to include 360 residential units, along with 205 guestrooms and suites.

Groundbreaking for the tower took place in October 2022, with site and foundation work underway since then.

A phased vertical permit was issued in January of this year.

This will move the scale of gravitational center back to the CBD. Glad to see this will be our first supertall. Can’t wait to see pass 99 stories.

Can’t wait to see the Holiday Inn Express and that mural gone before this building gets CO’d.

There’s super talls that will be higher going up in Brickell. It’ll be a nice sister peak in the skyline, it’s nice to have multiple centers all connected by the metro mover.

Brickell and Downtown have been connected together by the mover now since 1994.

The CBD has been neglected for a very long time I agree. We need more office space there.

This is huge for Miami. And I can already see the crowds of people blocking traffic on Biscayne Blvd, have the city planners considered a pedestrian bridge connnecting Bayfront to the sidewalk? Might be worth it in the long term.

What is this, Vegas? People who live on Biscayne should be able to cross the street….
Lets prioritize pedestrian infrastructure instead of excusing Biscayne’s 100′ width with an enormous pedestrian bridge.

Pedestrian bridges should only be used to connect transit stations, not 12 lanes of highways

I agree in theory but how do you prioritize pedestrians when there’s a 12 lane highway sperating you from public space? Other than putting it under ground, Wouldn’t a pedestrian rather use a walkway than risk Miami drivers everytime they want to cross?

A better option would be to remove the parking in the center of the Blvd and create a promenade with cafes, benches and a sculpture garden

The center of Biscayne Blvd could have been entrances and exits for underground parking garages.

Pedestrian bridges over Biscayne is NOT the answer. Making a *residential neighborhood* walkable IS

Creating a Central Park a few avenues in would be better. Every other city has inner city large park space not only on the edge of the city

Good idea, let’s declare eminent domain on all of Mana’s properties and demolish them to make a park. Then change our minds and sell the park to *real* developers.

You mean an underground pedway system so people can safety cross the busy boulevard? Sign me up!

I go back to the 70’s when One Biscayne Tower dominated the skyline and I saw the Southeast Financial Center go up in 1981 and I was easily impressed then to fast forward to now with W.A at 1048, Cipriani 940,Okan 903 Baccarat 848 my town is on fire

You obviously haven’t seen cantilevered buildings in Dubai, Beijing or Kuala Lumpur.
This is nothing in comparison, so chill

Yeah the top cube is imbalanced. They can make it look cool and cantilevered without looking like an eye soar. We should surprise people, not shock them into trauma.

Now pressure washers and painters need to be in place to remove that ridiculous mural, and a wrecking ball in place to remove the Holiday Inn Express.

Anon

Looks like they adjusted the top block so it doesn’t look so imbalanced in the design.

The Holiday Inn Express is going to look silly adjacent to this.

Not bad up close but from some angles the top head block sticks forward too far.

These are different type cranes than typically used here. The counter jib intersects the tower at a 45 degree angle. They are the types you see in NYC and London. What are they called? And why this type? Have also seen them in Las Vegas. Our usual cranes have the counter jib meeting at a 90 degree angle.

they should have bought the holiday Inn building as well. Could have been parking with a nice roof garden . Anything except that horrible building beside it.
