Miami Worldcenter Getting Two Supertall Residential Towers By Developer Naftali Group

New York-based developer Naftali Group has announced plans to build two residential towers at Miami Worldcenter.

The towers will be supertalls, according to a press release.

The project will have condo units available for sale. Pre-sales will launch at the end of this year, Naftali said in a statement.

The development site is at 1016 Northeast Second Avenue, formerly owned by Akara Partners.

Naftali said it has already closed on the purchase of the site for $40.5 million. Mika Mattingly, Executive Managing Director at Colliers’ Urban Core Division, represented both the buyer and the seller in the transaction.

Up to 1.3 million square feet of development can be built on the site.

The developer, which is led by Miki Naftali, has a history of hiring top architectural talent.

In New York, Naftali just completed The Benson (by architect Peter Pennoyer). They are also near completion of The Bellemont (designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects) and 200 East 83rd Street (also designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects).

A spokesperson for Naftali said the developer would announce an architect and exact height for 1016 Northeast Second Avenue at a later date.

People bitch about this development but I still feel in 5-10 years this will be the epicenter of the city

So many comments on ‘this building this…this building that’. Do you still want Miami to look like sh#t? World Centre keeps on adding to it. Wait in few years and you’ll be happy,

RAMSA is also building a beautiful 42 floors tower in Harlem in Manhattan at West 122nd Street. They sure have great taste in architecture and it would be a breath of fresh air for Miami😊

Yea I saw it last month when I was in NY and it looks a lot like the one in the picture. I love how it blends with the surrounding brownstones and townhouses. In Miami I still prefer modern glass buildings though.

Miami has a great classical architecture skyscraper heritage lost for the most part, save for Freedom Tower and Dade County Courthouse. I say build classic to revive it!

When Miami developers build classic, it always comes out as an ugly, orange wannabe Biltmore

The Bronx is not in Manhattan.. that’s why the Bronx is called a borough… like Manhattan… HARLEM is a neighborhood in Manhattan.

Harlem is in Manhattan, unless you consider everything north of the Upper East and West sides not Manhattan, like how some people don’t consider Brooklyn or Queens as part of Long Island, being being on said island.

I love Harlem. A friend lives there in a 100 year old townhouse that looks just like the one in Sex and the City.

I watched the TV show Harlem on Amazon and I’m watching Run The World on Statz, besides the racìst comments against white people, they are very nice and show how beautiful harlem is.

Well, Harlem is part of Manhattan and it has the nicest buildings in Manhattan because the entire Harlem looks like SoHo and the Village but it’s way bigger. Harlem has many neighborhoods in it.

I have been to Harlem some months ago and it’s beautiful!

Williamsburg. They say Harlem is now the place to be. I’ve never been there but I see their posts on IG and it looks really cool

How is it off topic to speak of a different neighborhood where the same architects are designing a building for. This helps draw similarities and differences between the projects and it helps better understanding the trajectory of 1) Miami Woledcenter, 2) This specific towers

They cannot build a supertall in that location. The highest a developer can go in that location is 706 FT MSL.

It can and should happen, yes. The next news is that rents in Miami are up 55% in February. Every big developer doesn’t want to miss this moment in the city.

With all of these supertalls being built at Miami World Center why is The Crosby being built only 300 feet tall. 33 stories seems very short for buildings in this area.

He’s probably one of those architectural snobs who thinks everything new has to look modern, and anything classical, despite its style being inspired by centuries of architecture and modernism only being about 100 years old, is “kitschy” and “Disneyland.”

Tell me something clueless one.. how does the architecture of that building you see in the picture, blend in with the modern architecture you see in downtown Miami?

Anon

Look at the the freedom tower, the old federal courthouse and the building wework and the other handful of other historic buildings they blend beautifully with modern glass towers

Downtown has too many glass skyscrapers. They need something with more classic architecture

If it was what was proposed, it would still be fit for Miami. Look at historic photos of downtown. We had many 1910s and 20s classical high-rise hotels before being destroyed for parking lots and glass boxes.
