Photos: Paramount Miami Worldcenter At Level 45 Of 65

Paramount Miami Worldcenter, the fourth tallest tower under construction in Miami, will soon be pouring level 45.

Construction began about two years ago.

Eventually, the tower will top off at 65 stories, or 699 feet above ground. As a comparison, nearby One Thousand Museum recently topped off at 706 feet above ground (although it isn’t nearly as massive as Paramount).

An 1,100-space parking structure with a small amount of retail is also under construction at Worldcenter. Across the street, a 43-story, 444-unit rental tower called Caoba with its own parking garage has topped off. Drainage is also being installed along NE 1st Ave from the FEC Railroad Tracks to NE 8th ST.

So is this tower actually 699 feet? At 45 stories, with 20 more to go, it looks taller than that.

hopefully at some point, they can ask for an increase by 100. Would of loved to have had this building at 800 feet. No more no less.

ILoveMiami

I had to give you a thumbs down, only because you continue to write “of” instead of “have”. Maybe you don’t understand. You see…proper English would be “I would have loved to…” NOT “I would of loved to…” Who says “of”? Don’t answer that, I already know.

I thought Paramount was going to be 60 floors, not 65.

It’s 57 stories, not 65

Thousands of parking spaces in these images… Where is the transit? The people of Miami want transit and they want protected bike lanes. We don’t want to be stuck in our cars!

Anonymous

Blah blah blah….why must a response to everything be “more bike lanes!!!” Who cares? Most people don’t want to be riding a suit and tie while biking to work. Cars are a necessary evil in Miami. It’s slowly changing but it probably won’t happen in our lifetime.

Not with that attitude.

Exactly! I used to bike all the time in Portland Oregon and San Diego California. There is no way I am biking in Miami. The weather is too hot and humid and car drivers are the worse! I will either Uber or Lyft and for long trips I will drive, period!

Hot temperatures from April – October limit riding my bike to work.. unless you’re able to take a shower at work.

Portland politeness and good driving manners.Once stayed in the quasi-congested heart of downtown Portland for 4 or 5 days and noticed only ONE car running the red light vs what we see here in downtown miami.
The bikers were in abundance and respected by drivers.

Yes!… and that’s because Portland doesn’t have all of these South of the border people like Miami does.

I am glad you wrote this, my experience was the same. People in Portland were super nice, if my job had not brought me here I would have stayed there. People there actually say thank you when you hold the door for them.

Are these the same people that turned their city into war-zone after the last Presidential elections? Yeah, definitely a nice bunch, lol.

Portland is full of hipsters who refuse to use soap. Imagine sharing a train car with them in eighty-something-degree weather.

80 something? Yeah it gets that warm in Portland for like 3 months out of the year, barely. I would rather share a train car full of hipsters than sitting next to ole’ sweaty swamp ass from South Florida.

They’re not educated in a system thats ‘F@uck U it’s all about me’ . PS soy más hispano que nadie en esta cuidad. But we all now it’s true. This is City of uneducated south of the border. Like me . And it’s true.

Now he/she will want bike lanes not only to be “protected”, but air-conditioned too.

Agree with you.
Unfortunately, it’s too late for mass transit. The city was built in the years of suburban sprawls and auto dependent. Moreover, even now in the 21st Century, we continue the madness… Just watch the fastest growing areas in the county: Doral, Miramar, Homestead, Aventura. Do any of those places have any mass transit?????

Most of Miami proper was platted in the 1910s and 20s. It’s older than you think. Walkability is a whole other issue, especially when it’s a million degrees outside.

What are you talking about…your lifetime? In 5 years max autonomous vehicles owned by ride sharing companies will make your car obsolete. Therefore the Anonymous who started this thread is right. Whoever builds a car garage now is building an amenity that is going to be worthless in a few years.

So I guess you already plan on purchasing a lot of stock in those “autonomous vehicle ride sharing companies?”

Anonymous

As a matter of fact I’m a stock broker and my portfolio is loaded with stocks that will benefit from this revolution. So you think you will still own a car in 10 years? Lol

Anonymous

Do you really think that when autonomous vehicles control the streets things will be better? If everyone is commuting in a robotic car, how fast do you think they will be traveling when their driverless cars have to stop at red lights for more driverless cars to cross? It won’t be pretty. The only thing that will be different is that you won’t be driving– but you’ll still be stuck in traffic.

Anonymous

Why would a driverless car stop at a red light? You completely miss the point. At the beginning yes. But when all the cars will be driverless like in your scenario, the heck you mean by a red light?

While I agree that I’d like to see less parking.. for you to assert “where is the transit?” is to show you probably never even frequent this area, or never use transit yourself. Paramount literally sits between two Metromover stations, and the entire property is adjacent to MiamiCentral, where residents will have access Brightline, Tri-Rail, Metrorail and buses and trolleys. We all know Miami Dade Transit’s shortcomings, but if you’re living in Paramount, you have some of the best transit access in Miami.. heck, in the entire state of FL. It’s far from perfect, but it does exist. And it can certainly be a viable option for people not looking to use their cars for every single trip they need to make. Hopefully future Paramount residents realize this and take advantage of it.

Correct! The city is finally catching up to the existing Mass Transit system that’s already in existence, not the other way around.

Paramount residents will soon learn to take mass transit when they can’t get out of their garage because of traffic outside their building.

I’ll do both. I’ll take mass transit when the weather allows it and I’m not going too far and I’ll take my car when I want to go to the keys or to see friends and family in Ft. Lauderdale and West Miami.

Dude, it’s not about insulting people from another continent. I was born in Miami sixty two years (62) ago. I owe no politeness to anyone who floated, sneaked, illegally crossed borders, or even migrated legally to this country. I’m black, and a few years ago, I had a person who could barely speak a lick of English step to me in a store in Miami and tried to tell me that I must leave after I had just shopped there as I was looking aroubd for the person who I had came with. I ripped this nobody a new ass and told him not only was I born in this city, I’m a ten year United States Army vet also, so GTFOMF! Black people in Miami know how hispanics can get bold, disrepectful and very insultive towards us. I remember when Jesse Jackson went to Cuba and got Castro to release twenty something prisoners out of Cuba’s dungeons in the nineteen eighties after some of them had been there for 10, 15, and even over twenty years, and returned with them to the United States, and Rev Jackson was still poo pooed upon by most of the Cuban community in… Read more »

LOL. I’m neither cuban, black or white, so I don’t have a horse in this race, but I believe Castro released those prisoners to Rev. Jackson just to piss off white Republican politicians in the US. And it worked.

pero porque brode

“Black people in Miami know how hispanics can get bold, disrepectful and very insultive towards us.”

I’m Cuban…came here in 2004. I don’t insult anyone of any race or country origin. I learned English by watching American movies, ESOL classes, and got a girlfriend who was white. My best friends were black. A ton load of blacks were my friends and taught them Spanish the best I can and helped me to fine tune my English in return.

Your statement above is a generalization that is not fair at all. You can say “some” or even “most”. But to use it in general terms to include those like me is being stereotypical and makes you no better than those you are talking about.

Anonymous

And here we go folks, someone hispanic taking it personal and trying to tell a person who was born in this country sixty two years ago how insulted he feels. I didn’t stereotype Jacksh’t.

“I’m Cuban…come here in 2004.” Big effing deal! Look son, my dead father was born in this country, just like his father who’s half Indian to, and his father before him, and his father before him.

Miss me and go play.

Well I do like violence or disrespected from any side but I do agree Cubans do come from a culture of generilsed racism. I’m Cuban by the way . Not all of course . But much more than say..Portland.

And you already get it when you said ” not all of course “.
You can’t generalize. certain percentage of individuals in every ethnic backround is racist against another one.

But were you are wrong is failing understand a good education system builds a culture of tolerance and upturn in civil tolerance. And not all countries have same level of education.

The statement was generally true and even on Cuban channels they still have black face shows. Im not the original poster but part black as well and regularly have been treated awfully by the hands of hispanics.

Anonymous

I’m half Haitian/African American born in Miami and I’m none of the above commentators. But I agree that you can’t generalize because not ” all ” in different backgrounds are alike. Even if it’s in the majority or whatever the percentage demographics, it is still incorrect to generalize as if they ” all ” are the same. It is plain stereotyping.

Anonymous

Dude, what are talking about? Even in the hispanic community in Miami hispanics stereotype. Cubans in Miami feel that they are on the “top of the ladder” and all other latin people are beneath them. That’s not specuation, that’s a known fact. I’ve read many comments on different Miami Herald sites through the years with Cubans and Mexicans battling it out. It’s a known fact that hispanics from South America down in South Dade are treated like sh’t by Cubans and other hispanic who feel like they are better than them.

I told you, I don’t generalize or stereotype… I tell the truth.

You are indeed generalizing and can’t understand what the above posters have said. You really should take some sociology courses.

True, but the last time I checked we are entitled to defend ourselves and our beliefs. Well, that was before Trump’s next tweet. For those who remain silent, they become part of the problem. All we should require of anyone is that they remain civil, you know, that old fashioned concept the angry wild-eyed Repugnicants have trampled into the ground.

You do understand the American Airlines Arena (a 20,000 seat arena, with only 800 on-site parking spaces) is immediately across the street, right? Same goes for the new museums. Where would you have these thousands of people park? Have you been downtown before? Also, there are 1,000+ residential units shown here – they shouldn’t get parking spaces?
And, to your question, where is the transit…. this site has 3 MetroMover stops literally on-site, and the multi-modal MiamiCentral station (ties together MetroMover, MetroRail, Brightline and Tri-Rail) is one block away. Really not sure what more you’re looking for….

You’ve proven the point. There are lots of places, event, destinations *without* parking. They are successful and don’t clog the streets.

So why build massive parking garages that will induce demand and clog the streets?

Anonymous

They aren’t successful without parking… they just rely on lots that are no longer, or will no longer be, available. Hence the need to build parking. All three are desperately looking at parking options nearby.

You should initiate the proposition which would tax bicyclists on their mileage. Somebody has to pay for those “protected bike lanes” and it should definitely be the users.

Before you tap yourself in the back oscar for being morally suspeior . You’re missin the point. I think a couple of Cubans are man enoughhere to publicly recognize that Cuban culture. And latinoamerican in general is somewhat lacking is standards of education and civility. As some black gentlemen have longed out here. Racism is Cuba is more prevalent (in general stands) than say Sweden. And the Cubans who admit are strong minded good folk who , recognizing this, want to change and probablywork hard to educate their children and proven to live ve and fight for cultire love their curlier more than you ever would. So my firmed oscar . It turns out YOU are the bigot and racist here because you are quite happy to not fight to improve your culture , YOU don’t love yourself enough. So oscar looks like you dig yourself a while trying to climb the moral ground. Adiós amigo
