Paramount Tower’s Glass Color Revealed After Film Removed (Photos)

At Miami Worldcenter’s Paramount condo tower, workers have removed the protective plastic that was covering windows to reveal what appears to be a smoky-gray colored glass.

Elkus Manfredi is the design architect, with ODP Architects the architect of record.

Can’t believe the Paramunt and MWC is being built after 10+ years of discussing. Not to be overly dramatic – but looks true to form and worthy of Miami’s skyline.

Dang, I was hoping the glass stayed that blue/green color. Oh well, it’s still an awesome building that’s being added to Miami’s skyline.

Still, we could use more classic blue after all the grey and crappy earth tones.

You guys keep complaining about parking garages as if it’s up to the developers to build them. It’s not the developers it’s Miami Dade County an their redicoulous building codes.as a matter of fact MWC would have to build even more parking if I wasn’t for the fact they are right by a rail station. MWC was able to get a reduction in parking, do y’all actually think developers want to spend the extra money to build parking? Of course not but they have to because Dade say they have to…

We dont have the infiltructure no where in Florida to be without parking you guys know this. Public transportation sucks and everything is spread out no density. You can go without cars an parking in New York they have rail everywhere an was built around it. Miami or nowhere in Florida do we have that so we rely heavily on cars and that’s just how it is period!

Why would you build satellite parking in an urban core?

Because Urban Cores tend to have people who drive and own cars.

So… if they live in the urban core why do they need to drive to the AAA or Bayfront?

I also was gang-raped by a group of Genghis Khan Mongolian soldiers in a parking garage, however, after years of the most intense psychological treatment, I was able to overcome my Parking lot phobia and started to understand that people need a place where to park their cars, especially in a city with no public transportation.

Walk around the site. The entire block is parking garages. Really pathetic. They would never do that in a real city.

Sounds like you should move to a real city.

the problem is not so much the parking itself but how the structure is designed to interact with the area it serves and whether or not it kills the urba vibe. Examples of bad designs include all of the parking pedestals of 900 biscayne, marquis, ten museum which annihilated any semblance or urban feel along NE 2 ave. The architects of those buildings only worried about making them look “pretty” on the side fronting Biscayne and then forgot about their back sides.

I suggest you walk along Biscayne then. Problem solved.
