Here’s A List Of Every Tower Announced At Miami Worldcenter To Date, Now Nearing A Dozen

Miami Worldcenter is in the process of transforming downtown Miami, with block after block of massive towers already underway or in planning.

It is either the biggest or second biggest urban development project in the United States (some say that New York’s Hudson Yards is bigger).

Worldcenter’s development plans are still unfolding. Two new towers were revealed last month for Worldcenter, and another was revealed in March. Still more towers will be revealed in time.

Here is a look at every project proposed within the 27-acre project site known as of now (countless projects are also being built in every direction nearby by other developers, spurred on by Worldcenter):

  1. Paramount Miami Worldcenter – a 60-story tower with 569 luxury condominiums. Completed just days ago, with residents beginning to move in now.
  2. One Worldcenter (formerly 110 10th) – 45-story office tower with around 600,000 square feet of Class A office space by developer Hines. Architects designed a “futuristic diagrid” for the exterior. Construction start date not yet known.
  3. Marriott Marquis Hotel & Convention Center – A 54-story hotel tower with 1,700 hotel rooms and 500,000 square feet of convention space. A second tower could also be built. Construction start date not yet known.
  4. Luma – 43-story tower with 434 luxury rental apartments. Construction got underway this year, completion 2022.
  5. Caoba – 43-story tower with 444 rental apartments, completed earlier this year.
  6. Caoba 2 – 40-story tower with 411 rental apartments. Construction permits have been filed, but work hasn’t yet started.
  7. Kenect – 39-story tower with 450 rental co-living apartments, including micro-units. Approval process underway, construction start date not yet known.
  8. Kenect 2 – 79-story tower to be built as Kenect’s second phase with 468 residential units. Construction start date not yet known.
  9. Fifield Tower – a 47-story tower with 533 residential unveiled a few months ago. Construction start date unknown.
  10. CitizenM Hotel – 12-story hotel with 351 rooms. Construction is about to begin.
  11. Block E – Lalezarian Properties of New York recently purchase the property, which includes density rights for up to 2,500 units. Construction start date not yet known.
  12. Retail – Around 300,000 square feet is under construction, with delivery soon and more planned.

How is this considered one development when all the sites have been sold off to different developer and not built to the original plan… Hudson yard is without a doubt the greatest development in the United States

Anonymous

The master developer gets to decide who can play in the sandbox and how big their toys can be. All while not really having to build anything themselves and pocketing HUUUUUGE $$$$$$$ for granting the privilege to other grave-robbing global scumbags. Meanwhile Hudson Yards represents the height of corporate, vanilla bland, blahness topped off with a giant Schwarma.

People….yes naysayers, Brickell City Centre will be a failure, Aston Martin will never be built, Paramount will never be built and never look like the renderings, Brightline will be a failure, Chick Fil A will never be downtown, the Signature Bridge will never get built……seriously.

I was at the MWC site two weeks ago – Luna going up, Paramount about done, Caoba has people, clearing is happening for the retail area and for others sites.

I didn’t think MWC would ever happen, I was wrong, I own it and I think it looks great. So far so good!

Unlike every other building nearby, there’s nothing ‘touching’ the Paramount – no building will be on top of it unlike Marina Blue, 1000 Museum, Marquis….have a friend who’s dying to get out of Marquis because every time he walks around, there are other units from other buildings that can see right in. He’s on an end unit.

Marina Blue so far has the best units as far as privacy and views! Paramount is actually blocked partially by Marina Blue. The only issue Marina Blue can have in the future is the development of that parking lot right next to it. But if that happens it will partially block Marina Blue and completely block Paramount so Marina blue is still the winner here?

I agree, moreover, wherever you see “construction date not yet known”, which is 80% of these towers; means it won’t start for another 5 years, at best. Unfortunately, this is the hard truth. In the case of the big convention hotel, I don’t see it happening for another decade.

The indoor idea with everything enclosed ? No. I like it better this way. Open. The only thing original I would keep is the original render for the Marriott Marquis. Also, Paramount at 100 feet more in height. That’s it.

retail in miami is only open because cubans/south americans are late joiners to online shopping. malls are closing all over the USA but miami wants to build the biggest mall ever. lots of people coming from areas where online retail doesn’t really exist means they are not used to it. after we tighten up our borders and these new arrivals learn how to click and shop retail in miami will start looking like the rest of the USA…closed w/ for lease/for sale signs in front.

Miami isn’t building a mall, a private company is. Tightening our borders won’t change a thing, except to finally demonstrate to the rest of the world what hippocrates we are. People who flock to, and spend money in Aventura, Dadeland, Westland, The Falls, Merrick Park, Dolphin and Sawgrass are not migrants, factory workers, dish washers, gardeners, cleaning ladies, or stand around Home Depot hustling for day work. New York City doesnt look like anything in Nebraska. San Fransisco does not look like Wichita. New Orkeans doesn’t resemble any other place in the US…and Miami, with all it’s perfect imperfections, doesnt have to fit your narrow-minded mold of what you think the US should look like.

But does pose an interesting question about whether the foreigners who have traditionally flocked to Miami to do their shopping will continue to do so in the face of American’s open hostility to immigration. Entry to this county has become a very unpleasant experience. Ask any tourist what it’s like now. Homeland security interviews are quite harsh. Even of the children. Miami needs to address these issues with the Feds or suffer the consequences to its tourists based economy.

If I remember correctly, there is also supposed to be two twins towers on the south side of the train station with one of them at 1000 ft. in height and the other slightly shorter like at 800 ft. or so I believe. I wonder what is going on with that one.

People are getting a little heady in their expectations from a bunch of slick renderings. The condo market is in a slump and all these apartment buildings are too expensive to be justified by current rents. There’s no surge in local housing demand and the foreigners have stopped buying all but micro units due to the strong dollar. It’s possible this area may attract some migration from other parts of Dade county due to the bad traffic, but Melo is building thousands of units far more cheaply on every side. We’ll see if the anchorless retail every gets developed. The buyers of these lots may be either non-economic investors or prepared to wait decades for a return.

Most of these Buildings don’t even have a groundbreaking date. That’s why I love Melo, They promise and They deliver fast. Melo buildings are not the best and we would rather see Buildings with better architecture in downtown but I don’t want to be Dreaming about the day that Major developers build their billion dollar projects in Downtown Miami because that’s not going to happen anytime soon

In terms of “envelope pushing,” nothing comes close to the Hudson Yards project. For instance, check out this indoor-outdoor theater space called “The Shed” which opened only a few months ago, and used its moveable canopy for the first time just a few days ago. http://bit.ly/2yHZvCD

NYC is also bleeding residents and companies every year due to its higher taxes. This is just one way they can attract new businesses and retain a lot of that tax revenue they need. Hudson yards is also not even remotely comparable as it’s one massive project and mwc is not.

You are right about the project not being finished, but MWC has taken as long as Hudson Yards and the Yard is way ahead in construction, completion, innovation, and vastly superior design. It is what it is. If we recognize our short comings, we might actually improve. We keep denying that a lot of what happens here is mediocre at best. Look at the new ferris wheel. Museum Park? Metro rail? Let’s get pissed off about those things instead of celebrating them. If we demand better, maybe we will get better results from city government, architects, designers and developers.
