Giant Sales Center Is Now Under Construction For Downtown Miami’s 98-Story Supertall Waldorf Astoria

Construction on a massive sales gallery for the 98-story Waldorf Astoria Hotel and Residences is underway.

The sales center is being built a block away from the Waldorf construction site, so that it can remain open during construction of the supertall tower. The Waldorf site is at 300 Biscayne Boulevard next to the X Miami tower, while the sales center is at 400 Biscayne, next to the construction site for a 49-story apartment tower that is currently rising.

The pre-fabricated sales gallery structure will include 6,144 square feet of space, with 20-foot ceiling heights, according to a construction permit. Total construction cost is $1,075,300, the permit states.

In August, a spokesperson for the developer told The Next Miami that the sales center will open in early 2020.

The $1 billion Waldorf tower will become Miami’s tallest at 1,041 feet above ground when completed. A hotel and luxury condos are planned within the tower.

PMG, Greybrook Realty Partners and S2 Development are the developers. The partnership obtained a a $33 million pre-construction loan from Bridgeinvest to begin work on the project earlier this year.

Sieger Suarez is designing the Waldorf tower, with Carlos Ott the conceptual architect.

Please let’s give this huge skyline some serious height like this.

To make this more unique and distinct, they should significantly LED each cube so each can portray unique designs and/or visuals (like the cube used for Deadmau5 shows for example).

Okay seriously? I’m all for more transit and less parking, but for buildings with prices like this, like hell parking is needed.

I think we all are but that doesn’t mean we should just stop everything, we should work hard to find a solution. If anything these developments provide incentive to not just abandon the city and let it become Atlantis.

This week they have proposed that Thanksgiving be done away with because of the carbon footprint from raising the turkeys and growing the food . Insanity.

Nope! That wont be for another 40-60 years. Plus all the rich people would have purchased all the elevated interior parts of the United States. Might as well enjoy Miami while it lasts!!!

I hope these huge highrises are able to withstand direct hits from category 3/4/5 hurricanes…….if they cant and they are still building them, then don’t blame construction companies.blame the city for allowing it….when they get destroyed during a massive hurricane……..brickell area is a swamp as it is……flooding everywhere…

Good call. Developers probably haven’t thought that a hurricane could hit Miami.

Wow there really is no way to please you people. Now you prefer a box as opposed to the stacked look, but if it were a box you would say you’d prefer a stacked look over a box. Get over yourselves.

We’re not impressed because all Sieger Suarez and Carlos Ott did was steal someone’s else design.

And if they did, they might travel to someplace where they would see a similar designed building.

They could’ve designed something better for this 1000 footer in Miami.

Agreed. It looks like they were looking for theme to make it stand out from the rest of the skyline. The height does that already.
