Dramatic Rooftop Planned At Downtown Miami’s Legacy Tower Shown In New Renderings By Architect Kobi Karp

Four new renderings of the Legacy Hotel at Miami Worldcenter have been released on social media by architect Kobi Karp, who is designing the project.

The most dramatic rendering shows the top of the 50-story tower.

A seven-story atrium is planned at the pinnacle, along with a “Singapore inspired” pool that juts out off the top. In the new renderings, palm trees can be seen both inside the atrium and outside on the roof deck, and the pool itself appears to be infinity style, which will make for a fun swim above the Miami skyline.

No spire can be seen at the top of the tower in the new renderings. In other renderings released by the developer, a spire is shown.

Also shown in the new renderings is a one-acre pool deck that the developer has said will be the largest in downtown Miami. It will include an adults-only pool.

At the ground floor, a glassy storefront area with what appears to be restaurant space next to the hotel entrance is shown.

Legacy will include 278 condo-hotel units and 255 hotel rooms, with sales now underway for the condo-hotel units.

Groundbreaking is scheduled for mid-2020.

Royal Palm Companies, which completed the 60-story Paramount Miami Worldcenter across the street, is the developer.

Finally we get a building with a crown. Well, this calls for a celebration… Not holding my breath until groundbreaking ceremony.

I like the fact it seems to be mostly a hotel so hopefully it means sales won’t be as much of a determining factor as to if or when it will be built.

groundbreaking in mid-2020 seems a little aggressive with the current market. Hopefully, the timeline holds though!

So does this mean convention hotel is scrapped?

We should definitely be considering a convention hotel to compete with Atlanta, Houston and Dallas on mid size convention

did you forget about the Miami Beach convention center? Vistors rather stay on the beach than downtown Miami. Especially if they are coming from the winter climate.

We wouldn’t compete with that kind of convention on the beach.

Where are the folks who disagreed that Kobi Karp is actually one of the few legitimate architects down here.

This is an older design and is very schematic. How are the mechanical requirements integrated? The newer designs is a better. Karp’s team can’t design towers. The real design team is in-house within the developers organization, and Karp is the architect of record as they have the horse power to do the construction drawings. Karp is a hired hand and all developers know that.

Are the majority of people not scared of heights? I guess not…i would venture to say 25-35% do get nervous above 15 storeys? I’ve wondered about what the norm is. I am, but I rarely hear folks bringing this stuff up in these tall buildings (balconies, near death swimming pools, etc.). Just curious.

How many**. I’d say to take your ignorance elsewhere, but thankfully that’s already where you said you’ll be.
