‘Iconic’ Legacy Miami Worldcenter Will Break Ground In Early 2021 After Developer Closes On Land For $34M

Downtown Miami will soon have another tower under construction.

Legacy Miami Worldcenter announced that they will break ground in early 2021 after the developer completed the purchase of the project site last week.

Permitting is already underway.

The 50-story Legacy will feature “iconic” architecture, according to Miami Worldcenter managing principal Nitin Motwani.

A dramatic Singapore-inspired cantilevered pool and seven-story rooftop atrium will highlight the top of the structure.

Royal Palm Companies is developing the project. The company paid $33.9 million to Worldcenter for the 66,656 square feet property at 942 Northeast First Avenue.

Royal Palm previously developed the Paramount tower across the street.

“We are looking forward to breaking ground in early 2021 on what we expect will be one of the iconic centerpieces of Miami Worldcenter,” said Dan Kodsi, CEO of RPC.

Legacy will include 274 branded residences atop a 256-room hotel. There will also be a 100,000 square foot medical and wellness center, a world-class restaurant, and downtown’s largest hotel pool deck set on one acre.

This tower will be the best tower in the development of Miami Worldcenter because since it’s like its own city within downtown, just imagine being within walking distance of your doctors appointment from let’s say Paramount Miami world center to your doctors appointment at Legacy Tower. or even be within walking distance from the nearest hospital. This is the tower for that. Or it gets even better from there. Imagine being just one elevator ride to your doctors appointment instead of walking or driving. You just get on your elevator from your apartment and there you are. Or just imagine if you need to go to the hospital, imagine being just an elevator ride from your apartment to the hospital. Instead of getting an ambulance and then driving all the way to Jackson, someone will just pick you up and get on the elevator and then there you are. Not only that the family members of the patient can be close by, especially if they have to go in for regular surgeries.

They said they will break ground in the first quarter of 2020.

As for early 2021.. I really can’t figure out what that means.

This should have been 20 floors higher

Why?

Because it would have added to the waterfront views to the pool and it would have been more iconic to see that nice top above other buildings as part of the skyline.
