Heavy Equipment Arrives At Miami Worldcenter Retail Construction Site

A large crane was spotted over the weekend at the Miami Worldcenter site where a multi-level “jewelry box” retail building is under construction.

Developers of the project also filed a Notice of Commencement this month with the county that work was officially underway.

According to the filing, Miami Worldcenter Block F East will include 91,300 square feet.

The building height will be 2 stories, or 50 feet, the filing states. The rooftop of the building will also be usable, according to its architect.

Worldcenter’s CitizenM hotel and the 43-story Bezel apartment tower are also under construction on the same block, while Miami World Tower will be built across the street.

I’m so ready for this to be completed. Once it opens this area will really be transformed. Just think about all the activities that can take places during games at AA. So much Potential!!!

We need something similar in the parking lot in front of the Arena. Put the parking underground or on the ground floor, build one floor retail and a restaurant on the rooftop. Way better than that parking we got now and not tall so we don’t overpower the Freedom Tower.

That would be great so it wouldn’t block the views of the hotel beside the MWC.

I somewhat disagree. I’d like to see Freedom Tower restored and turned into a boutique hotel, with air rights transfers for a supertall behind it complementing its architecture (i.e. no Arquitectonica, boxes, and/or cheap cladding).

Absolutely not. The Fredom Tower doesn’t need to be a hotel, that’s crazy.

Skyrise is an abomination. It looks real slick in the early renderings but they have added a bunch of carnival rides onto the side of the building in the latest designs. It is going to be really tacky and when their carnival business inevitably fails, we will not only have a tacky carnival ride in the most prominent spot in our skyline, we will have an abandoned and decaying carnival ride.

Good news that progress is happening here but I wouldn’t jump to conclusions about that moblie crane being there for the Jewelry Box project. Its a moblie crane owned by Maxim. The Citzen M hotel tower crane is also owned by Maxim. The crane is most likely there to take down the tower crane not to work on the retail project.

What a waste of space! Another tall tower with the same retail concept on street level would have been soooooooo much nicer. I think it’s a cop-out, instead of pursuing another hotel/condo tower.

exactly. Build a tall building and leave a space for grass and a park.
Why buy a $20 million block and build only two stories?
Build on 1/4th the lot at 8 stories (same sq ft) and leave the other 3/4 lot for a street level park.

Here we go again with this “park” bullish!t even though there are parks on Biscayne Blvd and on each side of I-395 to name a few.

They need to get the homeless out of the parks. It’s disgusting and dangerous

So more unnecessary parks mean more areas for the homeless to sleep in.
