Miami World Tower Developer Signs Utilities Deal For 565 Apartments

The developer of Miami World Towers has completed a deal to bring water and sewer utilities to the project site.

Kevin Lalezarian of Miami World Towers LLC signed the agreement with Miami-Dade County. The deal was finalized in late June.

According to the agreement, the first phase of Miami World Towers will include:

  • 565 apartments
  • 3,000 square feet of full service restaurant

Previous plans filed with the city showed the tower would also include 401 parking spaces.

The developer will pay a connection charge estimated to be $545,045.25 plus a special Biscayne Basin sewer connection charge of $330,614, for a total of over $875,000.

The first tower at the project is proposed to rise 53 stories or 579 feet above ground, which would make it the second tallest rental apartment in Miami. Others however are proposed to rise even taller.

A construction permit was applied for in December 2020, listing an estimated hard construction cost of $147 million.

Coastal Construction is the contractor.

No, this tower is supposed to have a second tower built behind it. Just like Caoba is supposed to have a second tower built behind it but they only built one for now. They should take Downtown Fifth as an example!

Units will have better views than Paramount, given only thing between this and the arena is CitizenM hotel at 12 stories. That rooftop pool will be quite something.

Hopefully they don’t build around the Freedom Tower. That area should be turned into an amazing square with museums and theatres.

All for more diverse museums. If Miami can get something like the Met, that would be awesome.

You must think Miami is some kind of a sophisticated city? Heck the museums we have now are struggling to stay afloat.

WTF are you talking about? Two gay guys who were obsessed with Gianni Versace (and also apparently very depressed) checked into the hotel that was formerly his home and killed themselves in a suicide pact on the 24th anniversary of the day he was murdered there. Not much of a story and has zero reflection on Miami.

MarinaBlue needs to replace subway and the other tiny commercial spaces with some world class restaurants. CVS is fine but it should have a pharmacy in it.

Also that CVS always stinks so they should do something about it. Maybe take out the carpet and put a different floor so they can actually clean it!

Funny, once a new building is built I often find it impossible to remember, much less visualize, what was there before, even if I’d driven past it a million times.

More ground breakings! I love this area and believe it will become Miami’s Times Square. With the open passages and direct access to shops and new parks near close to the bay this area will BOOM! Now we need info on the innovation district. It’s about time to start sales and marketing materials.

The location is fantastic! We just need more iconic buildings and also they should expedite a bit.

Yeah I think they should have at least two straight office buildings with MWC to for fill demand.

Best area in town! I wonder what kind of retail will be in it? Will it be big luxury brands? I hope so.

I would love to see this area become the next times square but I doubt it will be like that. I hope they build on the empty lots in front of miami central, this very valuable lots are being used as dumpsters , i called the office of the commissioner in charge of this district and complained about the illegal dumping but they don’t give a damn
