Miami Worldcenter Says 150,000 Square Feet Of Retail Is Now Complete After Closing On Retail Condo

Miami Worldcenter Associates has announced the completion of a significant amount of retail space, and closed on the purchase of a large retail condo at the base of the Paramount condo tower.

A total of 150,000 square feet of retail has now been completed at Miami Worldcenter, the developer said in a statement.

An additional 50,000 square feet is in development and will be delivered in the coming months.

Earlier this month, a 65,000 square feet retail condo built at the base of the newly completed Paramount Miami Worldcenter was purchased by Miami Worldcenter Associates for $17.52 million, records show. Banco Inbursa provided a $55 million mortgage.

Miami Worldcenter has a “plan to deliver a vibrant and connected pedestrian-friendly retail experience in the center of Downtown Miami’s thriving urban core,” Managing Partner Nitin Motwani said.

Closings are now underway at the residential Paramount Miami Worldcenter condo tower above the retail space.

Retail tenants have not been announced yet.

I’d love to see this. They had a chance to narrow the roads and use the extra space to make it less car-dependent (such as protected bike lanes) instead they kept the wide highway style streets and built thousands of car parking spots.

They got approval to make 7th Street fully pedestrian, they added another pedestrian walkway within their property lines, and they widened all the sidewalks (I’ve walked it, it’s actually great, though obviously need the retail to activate everything). To do bike lanes you need a City-wide effort, otherwise you end up with random, one-off segments.

Head down there and take a look at 7 St. They’ve yet to do anything there it’s not even dirt just a fence surrounded by emptiness.

How does MWC compare to Brickell City Center? As far as square footage and style. Meaning, this is outdoor right? vs BCC is indoor. Sorry for the stupid question, out of towner here;)

So I asked a simple genuine question and I got a thumb down and no replies? I don’t get it.

Because people are jealous of the fact that MWC will be way better than Brickell’s. As per your question, I am not sure about square footage but I think it’s comparable.

Too early for comparisons. BBC has only been opened a year or so.. MWC isn’t even open yet.

BCC is going on their 3 year anniversary soon.

Although not open there could still be a comparison with what MWC is going to be, especially in size. I was also trying to understand if this will be street stores or a closed space like BCC.

The original plan was closed space with mall. Bloomingdale’s and Macy’s were going to be the anchors. They decided to go with street stores instead.

I don’t mean to sound rude but everyone in here seems to know everything even better than the experts, yet no one can answer my simple question? I am confused…

The simple answer is that MWC will be way superior to BCC. Many can’t see it yet but the MWC area will soon be the place to be!

Apparently no one can read to understand the question…this is very different than Brickell City Centre which is an enclosed “mall-style” shopping center where Miami World Center is “high-street retail” think Lincoln Road instead of Aventura Mall. Both are nice for different reasons but very different products. Comparing size, Brickell City Center has roughly 500,000 square feet of retail space and Miami World Center is supposed to have around 300,000

So those angled areas at the base were just to hide parking….I thought they were condo units…ok.

Recruit jobs via major companies by building office buildings. Once the jobs are in place it will create traffic for restaurants, bars, museums real public art ( not murals ) etc. The area will be activated in short order. As usual everything here is done ass backwards.

it takes more than building office buildings, they need more incentives

Not a fan of the parking garage/amenity deck. A hotel tower with the amenities should have gone there…

Midtown wasn’t built in a year or two, so why do people think World Center should be finished already.

because people are comparing MWC to Hudson Yards in NYC.

Hudson Yards was built so quickly for it could have that tax incentive which was ending.
