Miami Worldcenter To Begin Building Retail & Office Lining A Pedestrian Promenade

Miami Worldcenter has applied for a construction permit to begin work on a mixed-use building lining a pedestrian promenade.

The construction permit was filed on December 1, city records show.

According to the filing, a total of 41,164 square feet of general commercial will be built over two stories.

According to Worldcenter, the building will have one level of creative retail on the ground floor, and creative office on the second floor. An earlier plan to build a three story structure on the same site has been scrapped.

Total construction cost of the new building is listed at $8.5 million.

The 7th Street Promenade which the new building will line is already complete. There is also retail space lining the south side of the promenade, although there are no tenants yet.

Another retail building will also begin construction soon at Worldcenter’s Block F East. Construction is expected to begin in January.

They come up with a new rendering every couple of months, and they wash down every previous design. Now they seem to end up with a very generic look.
I will believe in this area and project only if the convention center hotel gets done, otherwise it will be hard to fill all that retail space.

Finally a pedestrian street in downtown which will give life in the area. Miami need more pedestrians streets and plazas where people take change to socialize like Europeans and South America cities. I always pass of midtown grass square and i always wonder for what proposals leave this point like this. Just for dogs to pee.

Yeah.. the schools they go to don’t teach them worthashit so why should somebody else try?.. fuck it, just let anybody into this country and they can speak the English language anyway they want to as far as you’re concerned, right?

Wish they had kept it 3 stories, but at least it’s moving forward

It is as if none of the renderings produced for this project can stay current longer than 6 months.

It’s the right kind of walkable gateway from MiamiCentral to the bayfront.

I’ve been on site. That promenade is so narrow and tucked between tall buildings. Such a letdown!

That is not the promenade they are proposing here. This one runs east-west along the Caoba building, the other one goes north-south along the Paramount tower…

Were there any barricades or scaffolding from nearby construction that may have made it felt narrow? They vacated 7th St to make the promenade, so I can’t imagine it would feel narrower than 30′. I know the promenade in front of Caoba has planters in the middle that take up a lot of real estate, so hopefully that doesn’t continue east on the new portion.

You’re mistaken. The North-South alley that separates Paramount from their parking garage is indeed a disappointment.

The 7th Street Promenade runs East-West and was built in conjunction with Caoba (still awaiting their 2nd tower to break ground…). It’s well-designed & is quite wide just like the renders, but is missing foot traffic due to the non-existent retail element in the area as of now.

Didn’t they build ground retail in the buildings that have already gone up and they’re boarded up?

They’re closed off so when tenants are signed they’ll be able to put in their own glass/facade details. They turned this building over during a pandemic when retailers aren’t exactly knocking down the doors of any downtown, much less NEW buildings to pay high rents.

Wait for the cruise traffic to return and this area will pop.

What’s suppose to be a promenade looks like a glorified alleyway. So watered down, and the worst is yet to come (crappy box hotel with convention center)… SAD!

Well I can’t wait until this is built. Miami world center is going to help stimulate Miami’s economy which is reeling from the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
