Crane Installed At Caoba Miami Worldcenter’s Second 40-Story Tower

Vertical construction is now underway with a new tower crane at Caoba Miami Worldcenter’s second tower, according to a photo by Kyle Merville.

Caoba Miami Worldcenter’s second 40-story tower will include:

  • 411 apartments
  • 4,103 square feet of ground floor retail
  • No new parking spaces

The new tower will rise 413 feet.

Cohen Freedman Encinosa is the architect, as with the first tower.

A company linked to WeWork founder Adam Neumann is reportedly the developer, and was recently issued a $108 million construction loan to build the new tower.

That’s how most twin highrise projects were doing it back then.

The final buildout of WorldCenter will be insane. We’re talking 14+ towers here.

This part of downtown has sat empty for decades. It’s not “destined” for anything unless someone actually does it. Kudos to the developers for taking on this massive undertaking.

I tend to disagree. We should have other coffee brands as well to make it interesting:
Costa Coffee, Tucano Coffee, Peet’s Coffee, Panther’s Coffee, Caffe Nero, etc, etc.

It’s a good 10-15 min walk. There will be more than enough people to support both.

Not enough demand, office workers, residents or visitors to this part of the city.
Unfortunately, like most American cities everything is decentralized. Drive down SW 1st Street.
You’ll see what I mean. Every single storefront has been dead bolted or boarded up.
Very sad in the very center of a city. Pattern repeated down Miami Avenue and every other street downtown.

The people who spent millions of dollars on land acquisition, years of time, and preservered through a banking crisis put together a Special Area plan and called the area Miami World Center.
Reward those risk takers!

Miami World Center it shall be!

Isn’t their reward the money they’ll make from this development? Isn’t that what capitalism is all about in the first place?

It’s “West” of Museum and Bayfront “Park”

Hence “Park” “West”

Seems like everyone is an urban planner, architect or engineer on this forum. Most have negative comments. Miami downtown looks like shittt !. Stop dumping on your own city
