New Renderings & Full Plans For Under-Construction Legacy Tower

Developer Royal Palm Communities submitted plans for the Legacy Tower at Miami Worldcenter for a review by Miami’s Urban Development Review Board yesterday, revealing new renderings and details.

According to the plans, the roof of the tower will top off at 613 feet above ground. Mechanical space and a spire will ultimately bring the height to 690 feet.

Also newly revealed: the second floor of the podium will have a 2,990 square foot shul. An additional 3,761 square feet is marked as back of house for the shul.

The base will also have a business lounge, ballrooom space, restaurant, retail, and a giant wellness center.

A 9th floor pool deck, which is billed as the largest in downtown Miami, will be lined with villas. There will also be an indoor lounge/breakfast area.

Above that will be several levels of office space, followed by hotel and condos.

The top levels will have a “Singapore style” outdoor infinity pool and atrium with a sky lounge.

There will also be penthouse condos and junior hotel suites. At the very top overlooking the atrium, a Presidential Suite is planned.

Kobi Karp is listed as the architect.

A shul here, a church at Society, looks like Miami needs lots of praying!🙃

Beggars can’t be choosers but an extra 200-250 feet on this would really impress.Put the Counsil of Ricks against the FAA

Let’s scrap the “Infinity Pool” label, the plans clearly show it will be a typical pool that’s nowhere near the edge of the Sky Deck…

The infinity pool was never going to happen. Why anyone thought it would be possible to build a pool with a shear drop of 600+ feet on one side is beyond me.

The infinity pool is clearly in the renderings. Are you two (I think it’s the same person) blind?

I know it was in the renderings but the renderings showed something that would never be safe or legal. Anyone could have seen this change coming if they stopped and thought about it for 2 seconds.

Too bad it’s not taller.

it seems like most of World Center and its ancillary developments is going to be a plateau of the maximum permitted 699′

Very nice but should be way taller! There are so many taller skyscrapers with bland architecture. This building has an iconic design. It should have had an iconic height. That atrium should have been seen from everywhere like the Emire State and Chrysler buildings were for a long time. Now it’ll be lost in the cluster. A big missed opportunity.😒

There is nothing even remotely different to the original renderings. It looks really nice.

I had thought the condos would be large and suitable for a family and was amazed to see how small they are. Now believe this is being geared for short term airbnb type investors.

The rest of the land on this block not taken up by this building is that owned by same people and any plans to develop that?

Underwhelming. The best thing about some of these buildings is the shade provided.

Kobi Karp, please befriend Jorge Perez and hopefully you get hired on their future projects.

Kobi Karp is the architect of record, he or they are not the design architects, their design was done internally by Dan Kodsi and staff. kobi has the horse power to do the CD and CA. When have you ever seen a Kobi Karp design remotely similar or as sophisticated as this design?

Downtown will look ten times better in a few years with Eleven, Legacy, W.A. and Natiivo

yes I agree that downtown will look better than brickell, downtown has some nice old buildings like the ingram, dupont , dade common wealth, olympia, the international jewelry center, the security building the old courthouse and freedom tower. it also has the new buildings and that will give downtown an interesting combination of buildings

Because Miami Worldcenter is going to be waaaaay hotter than Brickell. It’s a better location, more central, with better views, better transportations, better entertainment venues and also Miami Dade College.

views will only last until everything is built around it.

Not for the waterfront buildings already downtown.

Thats not necessarily true. Buildings like the Equinix data center, and all of the MWC podiums, create blocks of space in-between the high-rises. There will be some solid views from inside of MWC

Views of what? 1-95 or rooftops of the internet building with all those white globes? If I was living in Miami, I would search for a view of water and a skyline view in the distance- but, to each their own. As long as people do not lose value on their property in 10 years, etc.

Why so many downvotes? Paramount, 1000 Museum, Legacy, Natiivo, 11 Residences, and still so much more to come. Looks good to me so far.

Nothing (except the Zaha building) that has a signature and has any architectural value. Paramount is so strange with apartments so large and have little views asking a huge amount of money on resells. I guess space is more important that amazing views.

It’s just that we do not have the developers (nor the money) that they have in NYC to get quality designed towers / projects for wealthy buyers. We are pretty swamp people wanting to pay 50 cents on every dollar in Miami.

I mean, I agree to an extent. I’m an architecture student, and I do recognize that 1000 Museum has probably the greatest amount of architectural clout in the city. But *most people* are not architecture students / critics and will be impressed by a building like Paramount and a building like Legacy. Also, I’d argue that despite veering a bit into tacky territory, both Paramount & Legacy have more interest to them than *any* of the buildings of Hudson Yards in NYC thus far. And Natiivo and 11 are not bad looking towers by any means (better looking than Bezel, super basic stucco rental tower, yawn)

Also, 11 Residences by Sieger Suarez architects is actually a really nice design.
