Developer Signs Utilities Deal For 100-Story Waldorf Astoria

The developer of downtown Miami’s 100-story Waldorf Astoria supertall tower has signed a utilities agreement.

Under the November 3 agreement, Miami-Dade’s Water and Sewer Department agreed to supply service to the Waldorf.

The connection fee is estimated at $742,967.10. There is also a Biscayne Basin Sanitary Sewer Special Connection Charge estimated at $450,669.60.

Kevin Maloney signed the agreement on behalf of PMG Downtown Developers LP.

The Waldorf Astoria is set to become the first ever tower in Miami taller than 1,000 feet (it will top off at 1,049 feet).

According to a representative of the developer, the Waldorf Astoria is planned to include:

  • 205 hotel rooms
  • 360 residential units

A groundbreaking ceremony took place earlier this month, and construction is now underway.

Hope the valet service is robust and uber lanes with that many hotel rooms, or the line with be backed up into biscayne blvd.

By then Biscayne will be mostly a green walkable space and less lanes will be available for cars. Green Biscayne is still in the plans and I hope it will happen sooner rather than later!!

Let’s hope! Biscayne is a nightmare now with cars racing by as they please. Need more bike lanes and pedestrian walkways.

And better timed traffic lights!! You get 10 seconds to cross Biscayne Blvd and it turns green every 5 minutes. At times it’s red on every direction for cars and pedestrians, the traffic lights truly make no sense!

For real! I’d like to get any of the people responsible for timing traffic lights and have him cross Biscayne without running…

Are they still proposing those tacky supertree knockoffs and silly-looking “tea house?”

I wish the top terrace would have been an observation deck for everyone to enjoy.

SkyRise will rise

That will be the SkyRise, which sooner or later WILL be built. Maybe with a new design or the old the one but it will happen.

Fingers crossed. I actually loved the design, it wasn’t another needle or antenna tower.

… “it wasn’t another needle or antenna tower,” which looks a hundred times better.

Skyrise is DEAD

Why do you use every supertall thread to spam off topic about that dead Skyrise crap? It’s gotten beyond old.

Well, they aren’t wrong though. The plans were put on hold so it might still happen.

The plans were put on hold? The Real Deal and The Next Miami announced themselves that Skyrise was officially cancelled.

These “SkyRise” nuts need to go where Berkowitz and his cantankerous looking Skyrise idea went.

That or SkyRise would be a lot better than the world’s smallest Ferris Wheel.

Miami definitely needs one already. Imagine the WTC Observatory partially outdoors with good Miami weather. Seems like a great concept for the Hyatt development.

Are these renderings to scale ? Seems like this is way taller than 1049 feet.

Anonymous

They are at least close to scale. Most of the ‘tall’ buildings around it are only 500 feet. In one picture it looks twice as tall as the 700 ft Southeast Financial Center and Marquis building and that’s not right but the night rendering looks accurate.

Not really, Vizcayne is 538’. Just slightly more than half the height of the Waldorf.

Great to see that this building is actually moving forward and this should push some of the people that put deposits down on units in other ” supertalls ” to ask why isn’t anything happening with there buildings.

It’s not too bad, but in the last renderings the top block looks too far over like a head leaning forward.

I'll just assume

In the renderings, look like this building is going to fall.
