Sold-Out 681-Foot Legacy Miami Worldcenter Hires Moss As General Contractor

The developers of the “iconic” Legacy Miami Worldcenter appear to have hired a general contractor.

Moss & Associates is the new general contractor for the tower, according to a July 1 update to the construction permit filed with the city.

The construction permit is still under review, although the developers are using a private reviewer to expedite approval.

A tree permit to remove or relocate 39 trees from the property was also applied for on June 22.

The 50-story Legacy tower is planned to rise 681 feet above ground, or 691 feet above sea level, making it the second tallest at Worldcenter. A dramatic Singapore-inspired cantilevered pool and seven-story rooftop atrium will make the tower stand out in Miami’s skyline.

Groundbreaking is expected soon. The 310 condo units in the building are 100% sold out, the developer announced in May.

The complex will also include a hotel and medical wellness center.

Completion is scheduled for 2024.

We need more glass buildings in Miami Worldcenter instead of these other buildings like Bezel, Caoba, Downtown Fifth etc.

“WE NEED” more glass buildings.
“WE NEED” more affordable housing.
“WE NEED” a Metromover stop in every place that I want to go, and a price that is not too more than WE want to pay.
“WE NEED” a pony.

Who wants to take bets on whether the spire ends up looking like the Brickell on the River one? Those had big spires in the renderings too.

Beautiful, stunning tower, that should have been on Biscayne Blvd. The site across the former American Airlines Arena would have been great.

That site deserves a museum on both sides of the Freedom tower. This will be a heavily touristic area and it deserves more arts in it, not graffiti…arts!

Already sold out. I guess people want that where you have the amenities and services of a hotel and if you need to go to the hospital, it’s just right off your elevator. Who wants to take an ambulance from their unit to the elevator and then from the lobby to the ambulance and then go all the way to Jackson when somebody can just Rush from their condo unit on the elevator and into the complex’s own medical center. It’s also good if you have doctors appointments. Besides, there could be traffic which can cause a problem for the ambulance trying to get someone to the hospital. Even for just a regular doctors appointment.

Related used Moss for numerous projects in Brickell and let me tell you the construction quality is subpar AT BEST. Walls are not 90 degrees anywhere, floors are never leveled correctly and gaps everywhere. Basically, fast shitty construction. Related and Moss are both being sued by 3-4 buildings as there have been numerous building related defects found. Leaks all over from the plumbing system. I can go on and on. When will Miami ever have quality GC’s doing quality work!? Hope these pple did there research on Moss.

This is a function of Related’s unwillingness to pay for a quality job, quality materials and allowing their GC to spend money to hire quality subcontractors; not so much Moss or any other GC that works for Related!

Thank you President Joe Biden for your great handling of the Covid-19 crises, and the great economic come back that have made all these sold out towers possible!

You should thank the governors of states like New York, California and Illinois and provide them with a marketing commission for their decisive actions that led to the speedy sellout of this and many other towers in Miami. Further, you should commend the mayors of NYC, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Chicago for making their cities increasing ever more difficult to live in. I guess Biden could also have an honorable mention as his policies and proposals are devaluating our currency at record pace which incentivizes people to buy hard assets like real estate to ride out inflation until some sanity returns.

Yes people have been leaving more conservative states and flocking to more liberal and open states like Florida. That said, the transition to remote work outdoes any policy based reasons as to why people may migrate to other states. Why not live in a warm weather location if you are doing the same work and can enjoy life without having to worry about greater risks of testing positive for COVID (which is an indoor virus)?

AND to make this point that it is not about policy, but a permanent shift to remote work or a separate breakout moment for Miami itself, nearly all restrictions are gone in the North. If you are vaccinated, COVID is a negligible worry. You can do what you did before now.

These sales were not intended for people to move when COVID lockdowns were most apparent. They are for years in the future especially since this building is currently a parking lot at the moment. If it is not about remote work, then these sales should slow down, which I don’t think is happening (besides Surfside).

All just another reason to bash big liberal cities with liberal governors for taking tough measures to limit the spread of a deadly and contagious virus

most of the condo buyers of this tower are rich people from latin america. so the recovery of the us economy has nothing to do with the selling of these condos, besides that these condos were selling since 2020 before the new administration took over

Maybe you’re mixed up and think the article is talking about the once proposed hotel/convention center.
