FAA Filing Submitted For 700-Foot Tower At Miami Worldcenter

Height approval is being requested for a 700-foot tower at Miami Worldcenter, according to a new filing with the Federal Aviation Administration.

The application appears to be for the Abbhi Capital property.

According to the December 2 application, a maximum tower height of 692 feet above ground, or 700 feet above sea level is being proposed.

Abbhi has spent a total of $44 million on 2.2 acres at Miami Worldcenter, with the rights to build up to 2 million square feet. Two adjacent sites were purchased by Abbhi in 2020 and 2021.

According to the Abbhi website, the project is now in the pre-development and entitlements phase.

The development will have multi-family, office, retail and hotel, the website says.

Next door, the property that formerly housed the Paramount Miami Worldcenter sales center was purchased by New York developer Naftali Group. Naftali filed for FAA approval for a 700-foot tower height on that site in September.

hopefully it prioritizes the local economy, not the oligarchs and new york exchanges that hoard the money for themselves.

Hope they keep this design. Much better than the boring stucco,ugly jutting balconies, and overboard podium stuff being tossed as infil.

This design on this looks pretty interesting for a “cereal box”. Hopefully the final product is something with a bit more flair than your standard infill

Not the new designs with rounded balconies and edges.

What are “the new designs”? Rounded balconies have been around for quite some time. They were very popular in the streamline moderne era and far earlier as well.

Half these comments scream “tell me you know nothing about architecture without saying you know nothing about architecture”

Streamline Moderne is timeless. International Style is hit and miss, with very few developments getting it right.

Thanks for upping my vocabulary! I love international style for low rises, with different materials, but on high rises it just turns the buildings into compounds and very brutal looking. Streamline modern looks more interesting on taller buildings. What about a combo? Also the new “streamline modern” buildings are much different than the older ones, they have more waves and seem to fuse both international and streamline.

They are more like unique polygons with diagonal lines to make them more reflective and look like crystals. Nobody does rectangular anymore, it gives off an eerie 70s 80s vacant corporate-building vibe.

Well you’ll have LA Fitness to burn it off, and then a low-tier sports bar to pack on twice the calories after. All with adequate parking! Frankly, for the price of vertical surburbia, you can get exactly the same in Westchester.

I think much more so – it has an arena, train station, multiple museums, an enormous park, opera house, nightclubs, etc…

Definitely not more “vibrant” than Brickell, if will be more buzzy with tourists like Time Square. Attracting a range of tourists to downtown will only make Brickell nicer and more high end.

Times Square has more foot traffic than anywhere else in New York? Not sure why you’re using that as your example for “not as lively”

Anonymous

The word was “vibrant” (energy and enthusiasm). I think Brickell will still be as vibrant if not more, even without as much foot traffic as Central Downtown.

Number two neighborhood, next to Brickell.

Brickell is already developing a stuffy, old vibe – similar to Upper East Side of New York, while Worldcenter and the northern neighborhoods are emerging as the future of the city.

More like a renaissance of its “old money” vibe it had prior to the 1960s. Frankly, I don’t see an issue, because the UES is (or was until recently) a classy place.

Brickell has one of the youngest and most enthusiastic vibes in Miami. It is and will always be the gem of Miami. It’s almost too young and enthusiastic, I had to move to a quieter street within Brickell. We don’t have to take away from something that is already amazing, to justify adding to it around Miami. Central Downtown can clean up its transient vibe without trying to beat or be Brickell.

The plan is to not to outdo each other, the plan for Miami is to become one big cohesive juggernaut. The object is be the leader in tourism and one of the best places to live in the United States.

Agree! We should all work together. For example, we need a vibrant core and gateway to the city (Downtown), a world-class financial and residential neighborhood (Brickell), a hip art and design neighborhood (Wynwood and Design District), additional residences (Midtown and Edgewater), and a natural and historic destination (Miami Beach). We can all work together to build up the City together and develop The Next Miami ™️.

we have too much tourism and transplants that it is becoming an unaffordable hellscape. we need to prioritize local culture and cut back on the degenerates who think they own this place with their e11even gold pass and alcohol abuse

Considering the announced tenants so far (except Sephora, I suppose), sadly you’re right.
