Legacy Miami Worldcenter Inks Utilities Deal: Here’s Exactly What The ‘Iconic’ 50-Story Tower Will Include

Legacy Miami Worldcenter signed a utilities deal last week that will allow it to connect to Miami-Dade’s water and sewer lines.

The developer of the 50-story project has agreed to pay a connection charge estimated at $912,649.35 (the actual charge will be based on rates in effect at the time of connection).

According to the agreement, Legacy will include:

  • 265 hotel rooms
  • 290 apartments
  • 11,750 square feet of retail
  • 33,500 square feet of full service restaurant
  • 120,000 square feet of physician’s office
  • 6,750 square feet of house of worship
  • 18,000 square feet of banquet hall

The developers submitted plans for a construction permit to the city in December, but there has been little progress in the past month.

Records show that they are using a private provider for review of the permit, which is more expensive but much faster.

The tower was approved by the FAA in January for a height of 661 feet above ground, which would make it the second tallest at Worldcenter.

Developer Royal Palm Communities completed the purchase of the site in December 2020. At the time, Worldcenter said that the tower would break ground in early 2021.

The design is so beautiful it could’ve been 900+ ft and a spectacle for the whole skyline. Regardless, I wanna see it built already.

This means its actually happening and most likely will start as soon as they approve the construction permit which the city is dragging

Like everything that is important and crucial for the city to grow. A decade later and we still don’t have a final on a soccer stadium.

Moving to Marina Blue because I need some spectacular views and I love the building and area. Eventually I’d like to buy here but I need to save up a bit more!

Why the city is dragging the construction permit for this beautiful tower? They do approve Melo’s towers in a blink of an eye, go figure!

Good question.

Maybe the money Melo could have spent on good architecture goes towards lobbying for fast approvals.

There’s zero chance the pool is built to the edge like the renderings show–a similar pool was proposed for 1000 Museum but local codes won’t allow it. Nevertheless, a great project for the area!

1000 thousand pool was indoors… The approvals for this design was already approved so unless you are the developer of this building don’t speak about something you know nothing about.

Get serious. It’s just an artist’s rendering, that’s not what they used to get design approval. No way in hell is the pool really going to come as close to the edge — without even a safety barrier around it! — as it does in that drawing.

I totally agree. There is no way in hell that pool will get built here in Miami. It’s too challenging and costly. Something like that would only be built in Dubai, Singapore or Kuala Lumpur. Not here.

Once you acknowledge there’s going to be a safety barrier, which does not appear in the rendering, then you have to acknowledge that it’s just a drawing. Pool’s not coming that close to the edge, either.

I wonder if the height includes the point on top of the building?

It’s a place where Republicons get on their knees and worship Trump and then bow to kiss his ring.

Maybe it’s a chapel for the hotel for people to get married, or the 120,000 of physician’s space, meaning satellite location for Baptist Hospital?

Go to the Website. It is fully explained there. It also explains the 120,000 square feet of physician’s office space.

Please let this be built! It’s least to counteract that every other building proposed for MWC is a boring box.

Wish they had proposed two of these towers with the other one being a little taller.

But those residents will be “close to the city’s renowned amenities and transportation options that take them anywhere in South Florida which consist of the Government Center’s Metrorail, Metromover and bus hubs, as well as MiamiCentral which features the tri-county rail service Brightline and will eventually include TriRail, within a five-minute walk to and from the property.” So I don’t think the residents will be suffering from a lack of a spectacular view.

You don’t have a view but you still rent a building In the projects so what’s your point?

Very, very cool looking and different. Now that’s the kind of building I like to see, as distinguished from that boring snoozefest “The District.”
