This is going to be a nice building and great for the area.
It needs at least 8 more towers rising to make it look like a continuation of downtown

I still remember when Level 3 first announced they would build on this site commentators on TV wondered out loud why they chose such a desolate location. It is now obvious that they had the foresight to see the potential of this area.

Miami is growing up people, so get used to it. You complainers want Miami to be on par with world class cities, well this is what it takes to make it so.

This is more important to Miami than just about any other mega project because of its proximity to the historic core and zoning density potential. Btw it’s pedestal not podium.

Arial photos always show the hundreds of empty prime and ready areas that need to be developed.

I wonder where thr loading area entrance is going to be since most of the time they all look detrimental and the garbage smell is so bad…hopefully doesn’t go next to the retail component

Agree 100% only in Miami developers can get away with something like this….now MWC has literally the Biscayne Wall infront of them. And i am not talking about the building heights but thr plain pedestals look more like a storage buildings

Even Los Angeles used to be a very pedestrian-friendly city with the world’s largest streetcar network until the 1960s.

Um yeah, and 1960’s Los Angeles didn’t have driveby shootings either.

The ground floor or the pedestal will be part of the MWC high street retail.

The Metromover tracks over the street offer no reason for developers to add any street interaction. The same with SW 1st Street, and Lower Wacker Drive and streets under the L in Chicago.

Funny, Second Avenue was envisioned to be the Fifth Avenue of the South back in the 1920s. It might as well be a downtown bypass to take traffic off Biscayne Boulevard and Miami Avenue, especially if a Miami River tunnel comes to fruition.

I swear, you experts who don’t build or design anything trip me out with your constant bellyaching!

Would you sit at an outdoor cafe under monorail tracks?

So you mean the only option you have when comes to dining at an outdoor cafe in Miami is under Metrorail or Metromover tracks?

No, the type of uses which create complete streets aren’t feasible when you have train tracks over your head. The only pedestrian activity you might see is the following:
