First Renderings Released For Midtown Miami’s Tallest Tower Ever

The Midtown 1 tower which has been in planning for several years has been sent to review by Miami’s Urban Development Review Board, with renderings of the tower publicly released for the first time

Midtown 1 is planned to become the tallest tower ever in Midtown Miami, at 48 stories and 596 feet above ground.

The new building is planned to include:

  • 400 residential units
  • 27,658 square feet of retail
  • 498 parking spaces on five levels

Arquitectonica is the architect.

Midtown 1 Investments, led by Terra and Lion Development Group, is the developer.

Miami’s Urban Development Review Board is scheduled to have a hearing on the proposal on May 15.

The growth happening in the Design District / Midtown area is amazing!!

It really is – it’s like a whole new center of action is being built around the Design District – can’t wait to see how this area continues to develop – the proximity to Miami Beach makes it even better!

This area has a lot of single-family homes mixed with luxury towers and blighted areas. It would be ideal to see townhouses and low-rises to match the suburban feel, and save tall towers for downtown or areas with good rail access. Hoping for zoning changes to make this happen, or improved rail connectivity.

There will be single family homes across the street from Cipriani Residences – thats Miami get over it

They have the liner units facing the tracks and the “green” podium facing the sidewalks…make it make sense

Hopefully they’re planning to beautify the (currently) non-existent pedestrian experience on the track side. It’s wild that the city has not even put funds into a sidewalk there.

It’s literally wild. They rake in millions in property taxes and that sidewalk is like walking opa locka

The design and scale of the design posted in Overtown should be the model for Midtown.

This area is zoned for higher towers – developers won’t cut the height by 40 stories just because you want them to Mr Keyboard Warrior

I really hope they keep that greenspace in the middle of Midtown as a park. The City should buy it from the developers since there are so few opportunities for parks in this city.

The crown makes all the difference. The street level is pretty nice, too. No blank walls covered with cheesy murals.

What crown ? Are you referring to that little uptick at the top? Lol!

I like the corner posts to account for the deeper balconies. It gives the building a more traditional square look than like 50 Biscayne with the heat sink radiator look.

We don’t need a commuter rail in Midtown, we need a rail to get from Midtown to Miami core so midtowners can commute into the core.

Where do you think Tri-Rail and Brightline will take you? They’ll both go north and south.

Brightline is like 100 a ticket and keeps going up, and tri rail goes to Hialeah, there’s no commuter rail from Midtown to downtown and rest of Miami core

I think it will be completed by 2034! I started following all of this development in 2009 on the site that became Curbed!!

If they don’t expand the exits for north miami ave and biscayne on the 112 the back log is going to be a thousand times worse than it already it is now. All these building with no thought for transporation.

Cool design. But I think this height should go near a metro mover station, or hold until the mover is extended to Midtown before adding anymore density above the core.

Anon

Oh yes, the metromover will be extended just like the East West Metrorail extension that we voted for!

It’s really not. Look to metro mover stops to know what is in the core. People are shady. It’s common sense.

Literally has nothing to do with the core. Are you new here? The core, as everyone understands it, extends North to 36th Street.

Reduce the car lanes and repurpose them for bus lanes/tram lines and protected bike lanes.

It’s so laughable seeing single family homes 2 blocks away from these high rises. Our density/zoning is a joke and the reason why we will never be on the same level as cities in the northeast.

I agree. Cities in the USA need to embrace mid density development and go all out.

This is the way, not everything has to be Manhattanized. Little Havana and South Beach are great examples of mid density and decent walkability, and with some public transit expansions, could very well be on par with places like Brooklyn or Boston.

Little havana has the potential to turn into a mini Barcelona. Low rise, mid to high density, great walkability. All it needs a redevelopment into 4-6 stories buildings nad mass rapid transit

With expanded public transit, mid density areas like Little Havana & Sobe could easily be on par with places like Brooklyn or Boston.

I think people forget that most of Manhattan isn’t high rises. West Village, Soho, Tribeca, Lower East Side, Upper West Side, I could go on. High rise districts are great but we need variety. We’ll never fill in the city if we only build high rises

I-195 is a pretty big barrier between the height to the south and the historic single family neighborhood to the north
