MiamiCentral Supertowers Begin City Approval Process

MiamiCentral Supertowers Begin City Approval Process

All Aboard Florida has started the approval process with the city to build two supertowers at MiamiCentral.

In March, the company filed a request to replat land for the two towers, according to documents obtained by The Next Miami.

According to the application, the two towers will include:

  • 750 hotel rooms, 50,000 square feet of retail (south tower)
  • 800,000 square feet of office space and 50,000 square feet of retail (north tower)

The replat request was reviewed by Miami’s Plat & Street Committee in April. It was first reviewed by a county platting board in 2016.

As part of the replatting, Northwest First Avenue will be straightened, with part of what is currently a roadway being added to the project site.

The proposed hotel would be bigger than any existing hotel within the city of Miami, while the office tower would be one of the biggest ever built in the city.

The towers could rise as tall as 991 feet above ground, or 1,000 feet above sea level, according to an application filed with and approved by the FAA.

Opening of the Brightline train terminal at MiamiCentral is said to be imminent and could come as soon as this week.

YES! Those conceptual mass renderings show two towers going to the ground, without typical Miami podiums, LOVE IT! I hope they make iconic public space around the towers. I understand their desire to take over the triangle park, but let’s see them make something nice for urban landscape and pedestrian experience as well. I’m sure they will, bright line station is looking fantastic.

What will the towers design be like? This is an opportunity to build something iconic in the very center of downtown, right between Brickell and the A&E area and most importantly ground zero for the transportation hub of the city

Agreed. They don’t need to be “iconic”, per se. But they need to be unique and have aesthetic appeal. They can’t just blend in.

Can’t wait for the renderings. I wish FECI will be successful with its courthouse proposal, too.

Developers in due time will go further into Overtown. It’s bitter sweet because it needs to be developed but on the other hand it will push the people out. I have aspirations to be a developer one day an if it was up to me I would build apartments with retail at the base. Make it affordable for the residents and rent out the retail space to business owners from Overtown.

Be clear. It will probably push the RENTERS out.

A lot of new developments happening in the area.

If by booming you mean gentrifying then yes you are absolutely correct. All these new projects will raise property values and therefore taxes will sky rocket, causing landlords to either sell or raise their rents to the point that it is no longer affordable for the current people who live there.

And those residents smart enough to own private property will get paid…IF they want to.

They need to do the gentrification of the Four Ambassadors Towers in Brickell, replace Brazilians and Colombians with Brickellites

You know the Colombians, Brazilians and other South Americans are doing something right when the gringos and “Cuban Americans” feel threatened by their progress and influence in Miami.

Most of those South Americans are feasting racist and look down on black people here. They act like i’m a wild animal.

Hope Flagler gets new storefronts and decent stores or maybe clubs like West Palm has. Plus the fantastic trees like Design District.

The revised traffic pattern will jam things up a bit. I hope that some city official looked at that before giving up that micro park in exchange for the triangle down the street….
