Podium Near Top-Off At 51-Story Natiivo Tower, New Drone Photos Show

Contractors appear to be nearing completion of part of the podium at Downtown Miami’s 51-story Natiivo Tower, according to new aerial photos by Aaron Demayo.

Another portion of Natiivo’s podium also now appears to be rising separately.

In addition to Natiivo, the photos show the newly completed 43-story Bezel Miami Worldcenter tower next door.

According to an October 2019 submission to the Urban Development Review Board, the project will have a 9-story podium – which now appears to be topping out.

Just three levels in the podium (levels 2, 3 and 4) will be used for parking with 459 stacked spaces, the UDRB submission stated.

Levels five through eight of the podium are dedicated to office space, with 129,244‬ square feet of net leasable space on those levels (14-foot ceiling heights).

The ground floor will include two separate lobbies for the residential and office areas, along with a ground floor Italian market and restaurants, a driveway, and loading areas.

The upper levels of Natiivo will have 100 Gale hotel rooms, 140 Gale hotel-condo units, and 448 residential condos, plus amenities.

I remember parking in empty lots in this area for heat games, or seeing fields of grass and dirt from the metromover. Now all of that has been replaced by this development. Truly awesome

Soon enough the Freedom Tower will look like a church in NYC surrounded by skyscrapers

Hopefully they won’t build tall around it. Those lots would be great for low-rise museums

I disagree, but the towers should be of good architecture, preferably by someone like RAMSA. Museums are for Museum Park.

I am with you.
im all for development, but they are letting the skyline be filled with plain, boring rectangular boxes on top of podiums or may be that becomes a miami style and another reason to come, see and explore…I can only hope.

construction of this building was moving very slowly but it’s finally picking up speed

Looks like Caoba Phase 2 is also starting up. Great times!

The first picture shows the reality of how pathetic the Metromover is, and any expansion needs larger cars at higher speeds, which essentially means a complete rebuild.

Can’t wait to see it surpass Bezel and bring some dimension to the towers on Biscayne.

I agree. You don’t need to put lipstick on a pig. Too bad every other tower in MWC is sad. Paramount should have been the start, not the sole tower that isn’t boring.

This area is becoming so dense and is already dwarfing the capacity of the MetroMover. Just looking at these pictures you can tell that the system won’t be able to meet the transit demand for Downtown alone in the near future.

It is news to report on the progress of projects. Can’t always be announcing new projects.
