Revealed: 48-Story Natiivo Tower Next To Miami Worldcenter, Designed For Airbnb

Natiivo, a 48-story tower planned in downtown Miami, was revealed by developers yesterday.

It is the first project in Miami to be “powered by Airbnb,” with units designed for short term rentals in partnership with Airbnb. Natiivo will charge 25 percent of income for management, plus another 3 percent Airbnb listing fee.

In total there will be 604 units, with over 400 to be sold and the remaining 200 retained by the developer to rent hotel rooms. Prices will range from $300,000 to $1.2 million.

Units that are developer owned will include robes and slippers, in room laundry, and kitchens that can be stocked with local meal kits upon request. Other options will include dog walking services and fresh cut flowers. Check in will be keyless through the app.

Newgard Development’s NGD Homesharing and Crescent Heights are the developers. Cervera is the broker handling sales.

A Niido Airbnb homesharing tower is also planned in Edgewater by Newgard and Crescent Heights, TRD reported.

Arquitectonica is the architect designing the tower, with interiors by Urban Robot.

Central Tokyo would beg to differ as well.

Central Tokyo is nothing but boxes the last twenty-five years, as zoning focuses on FAR and there’s an airport minutes away even more restrictive compared to MIA. Ain’t nothing like the bubble economy towers from the 1980s and early 1990s, the height of Postmodern architecture before Neo-modernist and contemporary crap.

And this one is decent compared to some others. If we’re behind compared to Asia we’re light years behind Middle Eastern designs

Is that all you care about? How about closing that gap with something that is so exceptional that when seen by the rest of tne world would immediately identify the city as MIAMI?

Natiivo will charge 25 percent of income for management, plus another 3 percent Airbnb listing fee. ????!!!! Plus, owners are in competition with the management’s 200 rooms !??? Are owners allowed to manage the unit themselves ??

Yes it’s very clear that the unit owner can list it on Airbnb themselves.

I think they’re referring to management of the amenities, as opposed to the units.

Most branded condo/hotel programs give owners 65% and take management takes 35%. They also require “spring cleaning” fees annually, and require owners to refresh the furniture/designs every 5 years or so. The 28% fee isn’t so bad.
I wouldn’t do it, but it is competitive with the market.

I wouldn’t do it because, yes, you are competing with the developer/manager, you are sure to be the last to be rented (except on those compression weeks!).

They may want to check with the city of Miami before pushing AirBnb. Airbnb recently lost a case against the city of Miami…..

It’ll be sold out soon. The concept works very well and location will be so, so on point.
At the center of the city with transportation.
Great development

Arquitectonica, interesting name for company that has only one design.

It would be a solid filler, but I don’t like how it’s going to dwarf Freedom Tower. Something taller and monumental needs to be in between.

Freedom Tower will never be dwarfed. The architecture is so stunning, it will shadow anything built around it. Actually, it may even enhance it and give it walkability

Perfume shop, jeans store, or office space?

But, it’s literally downtown where you have plenty of that already! That’s just unnecessarily duplicating or triplicating what’s already in the area.

Lets hope it gets better than Niido in Orlando which is a total disaster! But with a guy who can’t even build a parking lot, i think this project has a bright future!

Oh well, I’m glad they’re doing something with it instead of looking at another parking lot.

i’d rather hold to the parking lot until someone with a modern concept comes up. We shouldn’t accept these ugly/outdated designs for the sake of filling parking lots. I’ve we’ve waited this long, we can hold off for a little longer.

20 years from now, people are gonna look at Miami’s skyline and wonder why all these 70’s buildings were built in the 2020’s

“20 years from now”

We have been looking at that parking lot behind the so-called Freedom Tower for over twenty plus years now. If we were to keep on waiting until what you call a “modern concept” comes up, we’ll all probably be long dead before that happens.
