Revealed: 49-Story Tower Planned At 400 Biscayne

PMG and Greybrook have submitted plans to build a 49-story tower at 400 Biscayne Boulevard, across from Bayside Marketplace.

The new proposal is one block away from the recently completed X Miami tower, which was said to already be nearly full, just months after opening. X Miami offers shared living with a rent by the bedroom program, and the new tower appears to be designed for a similar concept.

As with 300 Biscayne, a portion of the property is being left vacant for a second tower (A 98-story Waldorf Astoria is planned at 300 Biscayne).

For the new tower at 400 Biscayne, gradient white, blue and clear fritted glass will rise 120 feet in the air from Biscayne Boulevard to clad the lower levels. Behind that will be a 12-story church (the First United Methodist Church is getting a new facility on its former land as part of the deal to purchase the property) and a parking garage with 527 spaces. White aluminum louvers and artistic murals will cover the remainder of the garage.

An amenity deck for residents is being built on level 9 and 10, including an oversized gym, spa, bar and lounge, and pool and beach areas. Three levels of co-working office space are planned above that.

Levels 14 to 47 will be residential, with a total of 646 apartments. More than half of those (340) will be studios, with the remainder 1, 2 and 3 bedrooms.

Clear glass with white frames will clad the office levels, while gray glass with dark gray frames and dark gray painted stucco will cover upper residential levels.

The roof of the tower will be at 539 feet tall, while the highest point including enclosure will be 573 feet above sea level.

Miami’s Urban Development Review Board is scheduled to review the proposal at a meeting on April 18.

Sieger Suarez is the architect.
