Dewatering Permit Issued At 1,049-Foot Waldorf Astoria Supertall Site

The developers of the 100-story Waldorf Astoria have obtained a dewatering permit and are one step closer to full foundation work.

The Waldorf is planned to become Miami’s first supertall tower, and will top off at 1,049 feet.

Records show that a dewatering permit needed for foundation work was issued by DERM on March 11. The permit allows two temporary drainage wells to be built.

A photo of the site on March 19 by Ryan RC Rea shows that some work appears to be underway.

A full foundation permit is getting closer to approval, city records show. Just one more reviewer needs to sign off on the plans, after a structural reviewer signed off on it this morning.

Hopefully all that goofy looking stuff go the way of SkyRise.

Others show rendering after rendering for their imaginary pipedream supertalls, but the Waldorf guys pull the dewatering permit. These dudes don’t play.

Hopefully that is true for the other developers that just unveiled projects.

people also said that about the other 7-8 supertall proposals floated along TNM, and they’ve been right

Doesn’t mean it’s always 100% correct. There are some instances like the Aston Martin Residences, and Missoni Baia. Both aren’t supertalls, but they were said to never be built.

^^the thread topic is supertalls, not being 100% correct and not non-supertalls.

Truly a game changer. Skyline dramatically changing.

Yeah.. Miami’s skyline dodged that Skyrise bullet, but it just couldn’t dodge that off stacked Waldorf Astoria bullet.

I think the developers of this project are going for a building that is unique. And the fact that it’s already applying for a drainage permit shows pure progress.

What’s “unique” about this copycat designed building?..

They don’t build “jokes” in Miami, they build “ridiculous looking.”

What building do you consider beautiful?

Aston Martin is beautiful. It has graceful curvature, and you don’t get the urge to nudge pieces of it back into alignment when you look at it from any angle. Generally speaking, symmetry, some element of gracefulness (curvature), tapering in a way that guides the eye to the apex…each of these is a way to elicit a beautiful building. WA isn’t about beauty. It’s about tweaking traditional notions of beauty…which it does. Personally, I think it is awkward.

Heck, it even looks awkward in the picture.

Comments from someone that never analyze floor plans otherwise wouldn’t say that. Each projects has their strength and weakness but the reality is Aston Martin still have remain inventory selling in the past 5 years and WA reached 80% sold in a year.
