‘Largest Penthouse In The United States’ Sold At Waldorf Astoria Supertall

An undisclosed buyer has just completed the purchase of the penthouse at the under-construction 100-story Waldorf Astoria Residences Miami.

Upon completion, the penthouse will be the the largest penthouse in the United States housed in Miami’s first supertall tower, developers said.

The “Mansion in the Sky” will be suspended 1,050 feet in the air above Miami, occupying the top five levels of the supertall tower.

It will have just under 34,000 square feet of space, with 10 bedrooms, 11 and ½ baths, and ceiling heights as high as 25 feet.

Amenities within the penthouse will include:

  • a wall-street-style trading room
  • safe room
  • billiards entertainment area
  • private movie theater
  • screening room equipped with two 90-inch theater screens
  • 3 wine cellars
  • full-scale bar
  • wellness center furnished with state-of-the-art equipment,
  • massage rooms
  • infrared sauna
  • 20-car garage to house the owner’s extensive car collection

The private rooftop of the penthouse will have:

  • a large pool
  • swim-up tiki bar
  • 3 cabanas
  • an outdoor gym
  • a multi-purpose court built for racquetball, pickleball and basketball

The new owner is continuing to finalize features that will be included in the penthouse with the developers.

Waldorf Astoria Miami will be “architecturally awe-inspiring” upon completion, according to the project’s developers.

The design by Sieger Suarez Architects, in collaboration with renowned architect Carlos Ott features nine spiraling, offset glass cubes wrapped in a a “glass skin,” distinguishing the property’s architecture from anything else on the East Coast.

The property will consist of 360 private residences, in addition to guestrooms and suites within a five-star hotel.

There will also be: Peacock Alley; a specialty restaurant; indoor/outdoor pre-function and function spaces; meetings and boardrooms; a resort-style pool deck with private cabanas; and a spa and fitness center.

PMG, along with partners Greybrook, Mohari Hospitality, S2 Development and  Hilton, are the developers.

PMG Residential agent Paul Lash represented both the developer and buyer in the transaction.

An official groundbreaking took place October 27th, with completion slated for 2026.

It would be nice if they redesigned the building, looks unstable even though we assume it is, especially the top cube. But if someone is wanting to pay big bucks for it, who am I to judge? It will be seen by the entire city though…

Actually, I saw some newer renderings where it appears more balanced. I give them credit for trying something different. It’s challenging to give the illusion of being disjointed, while still making it look balanced and welcoming.

Not enough if someone can afford a 35,000 sq ft home. How much wealth is enough? How many possessions are enough? All? while i’m sure its a beautiful home its beyond symbolic of the current real estate crisis in Miami where many people can’t afford a rental and somebody can swoop in and buy a 35K sq ft sky mansion. Its fine though, poor deserve to starve because they’re clearly lazy…..

Yeah man, you really made a huge point right there. Yeah.. “Detroit,” a city that was once the Empire of the U.S. Automotive Industry.. now reduced to a minuscule and minor entity of what it once was because of overseas auto imports and just plain ole capitalism. But you righties can explain everything.. can you?

Ignatius J Reilly

Detroit WAS the wealthiest city in the USA, if not the world, in the 1950’s. But with a modicum of additional study, you will find that Detroit’s downward spiral occurred well before “overseas auto imports” of the 1970
s and 1980’s.

The city began to fail rapidly in the beginning years of the 1960’s culminating with the 1967 riots that emptied the city limits of most of the well educated/well paid citizens, and Detroit has not recovered.

From wealthiest to one of the poorest major cities in the USA in less than 2 generations, is quite sad.

Maybe it is just a coincidence, but Louis C. Miriani served as the mayor of Detroit, Michigan, from 1957 to 1962. To date, he remains the most recent Republican to serve as Detroit’s mayor.

The mayor of Detroit was a Republican in 1962, and Detroit has NEVER had a Republican Mayor in the last 60 years. Incredible.

I think it was probably last year that I saw a TV document on tent people in San Francisco and one of the people they interviewed was a tent living Bank Executive who still had a job as a Bank Executive. He said he lived in a tent because rents had rising so high in San Francisco to the point that even he could not afford them.

Maybe his tastes were too high when it came to where he wanted to live and his income… but, who knows.

It’s a start, maybe the next lawn will lead to a business venture and you’ll own the business one day. The thing to do is to focus on the task at hand without minimizing it to the point that you don’t finish what’s in front of you.

Well, I would argue that housing is a service, as well as schooling and food, but many people here aren’t entitled to those things apparently. I guess it is more important for you for the penthouse of a billionaire to be 1,000 sq ft larger than for 1,000 people to have a harm meal or a decent house. I’m sorry.

I will say that there is some truth to this. But we already do provide public housing….

I read the Section 8 welcome booklet today out of curiosity, and it humbled me. It has diagrams of how to maintain a home. It includes what I thought were basic facts, like where to find a sink or what the flat part on top of the room is called (the ceiling). It occurred to me that some people may not have had the upbringing most of us had and don’t know how to make a place a home.

We should all look out for each other but taxing for this is not the way to go. We should as a society help look out for our neighbors on a personal level.

Key word: entitled.
No. No one is entitled to costly apartments, student loan forgiveness, monthly stipends for food in perpetuity.

Money does not grow on trees.
The money that you would confiscate from me to pay for someone else’s “services” means that you are confiscating or stealing my property (which can be my time, my labor, my ideas, etc).

A thief robs you at the barrel of a gun, the government robs individuals with the threat of prison time, and sometimes at the barrels of many guns.

The America people are, and have historically been, very generous and charitable. Not many individuals are adverse to providing a safety net to their fellows in need, but when that safety net turns into a hammock, there comes a problem.

Worse, when the politicians start using useful idiots to institute compelled confiscation on other people to finance their individual “vote-buying causes” the phoney entitlements become absurd.

Ok, now that we are on the subject of Biscayne Blvd.; what’s up with the horrendous parking down the middle of the street. Can’t the Parking Authority find an alternate location for those 50 spots. Those parking lots look horrendous and cheapen the neighborhood. Is the authority to busy spending the billions they collect every year, mind you without much oversight, to figure it out?
