‘Singapore Inspired’ Glass Pool Will Hang Off Rooftop 50 Floors Above Miami Worldcenter At Legacy Tower

You’ll soon be able to go for a swim in a glass pool that juts out off the top of a new 50-story tower planned at Miami Worldcenter.

Plans for a cantilevered glass pool that hangs off a deck were unveiled for Worldcenter’s newest tower, called Legacy Miami.

A bar will be located next to the pool. A seven story indoor atrium will be on the same floor.

In a press release, the pool is said to be “Singapore inspired,” likely a reference to the infinity rooftop pool at the Marina Bay Sands towers in Singapore.

The tallest of height of the three towers at Marina Bay Sands is around 57 stories and 679 feet. PR representatives for the developer of Legacy Miami said the new tower will be 50 stories.

It won’t be the only pool deck at the Legacy Hotel. Developer Royal Palm Companies says they will also build downtown Miami’s largest pool deck (totaling an acre) on the top of a five-story podium as part of the project.

Legacy will have an “adult pool” on the deck, one of three that guests can choose from there. The pool deck will also have a large restaurant and bar.

In total, 278 condo-hotel units and 255 hotel rooms are being built.

Kobi Karp is the architect, with interiors by IDDI.

Construction is expected to begin in mid-2020.

Should be built taller so that the views from the pool look over 1000 museum and 900 Biscayne. Regardless, this will make a great addition to the Skyline.

This is cool and all, but how about that transparent building on the right side of the rendering?! Now THAT’s innovative architecture!

If construction begins in 2020, it would be completed in 2023 or 2024. This adds more hotels to the area as well.

Wow, did Kobi Krap actually go back to school and study architecture this time?

Kobi didn’t design this….this is typically done in-house with some developers who have design staff. Royal Palm Companies has such capabilities. Kobi Karp will be the architect of record and will do all the construction documents as that requires a larger staff which Kobi has. For that, he does get paid well as his firm will have to coordinate all the engineering, the construction process…etc.Kobi’s design abilities are limited but he will do whatever developers tell him to do. This is well known in the Miami community.

Ok,so this starts in the $300s with a pool like that? am I missing something here or are we coming down to earth at last? biscayne row buildings that are 10 years old all asking around 300k for 1 bedrooms, 350-450k in park west biscayne row, either biscayne blds are going down substantially or this is going up once its completed, given the paramount is already being discounted even though its supposedly all sold out, i would bet on old going down.

$300k/362 sq ft = $828 sq ft. This building is def not priced cheap – but the small sq footage of the units may make you think that way. And it’s from the $300s…not $300k, so probably more than that.

By the time this is built, if it is, i personally doubt it, these things will be handed out at 200k with no buyers in sight. Too many units and way too few buyers this time around.

The two renderings don’t match. Those are two completely different designs, with the detail rendering of the crown being the better of the two.

I can’t wait until it is built.

The pool deck at 50 Biscayne is at least 2 times the size of that one! Remember the pool there is 44M long wich at least 2 time the size of that tiny pool! Largest pool deck absolutely not! And Sand inspired, obviously someone has never been there! It has NOTHING in common with the Sand! Weird and wrong facts!

I went to Kobi Karp Instagram page and he has renders of the project. Totally different design and looks a whole lot better with no antenna.

AWESOME .. hard to believe something like this does not exist in Miami yet, no rooftop bars/restaurants/pools etc.. The question again is however will they finish this before next crisis comes or will we get stuck with forever construction zone around AA arena, and who is buying this, it aint the foreigners, the got their own problems… ghetto rated schools around and locals cant afford it as well..

Hmmm…not impressed? Basic rectangle.
Maybe if they made a halo around the entire floor (ringed in LED light of course)…with a lazy river element?

Marina Bay Sands is only interesting for the rooftop pool, everything else about it is a hulking mess.
