The Crosby Miami Worldcenter Submitted To FAA At 390 Feet

The Crosby – a tower planned to be built at Miami Worldcenter, has been submitted for height approval to the Federal Aviation Administration.

According to a January 12 filing with the agency, the tower is planned to rise to a height of 377 feet above ground, or 390 feet above sea level.

The Crosby is planned to include 450 condo units and 3,370 square feet of retail, in a 33-story tower, according to a July 2022 construction permit filing.

No parking garage is planned.

Beauchamp Construction is listed as the general contractor on the construction permit filing.

DT G Block LLC, a partnership between Related Group and Merrimac Ventures, is the developing entity.

Good infill without a garage at Miami World Center, hope it has designated uber pick up/drop off spots though

How is it infill? MWC has basically been developed on a clean slate. We were supposed to get great buildings, not cereal boxes with zig-zag balconies.

The “zig-zag” balcony comment always makes me laugh lol. This guy can’t stand anything other than aligned balconies lol

Can we please get more unique-looking towers? Enough with the boring boxes. American designers/developers are so damn boring.

Does every building have to be some sort of crazy design? Paramount is unique. Legacy is unique. 1000 Museum is unique. I don’t mind having some toned down designs to let the more unique buildings shine through.

In a city with one of the largest skyline in the country to come up with only three decent looking buildings says a lot, and legacy is not there yet. Miami has the most repetitive, almost boring skyline ever.

Sure, Paramount and Legacy are unique, but those alone don’t cut it for what MWC was envisioned as, and I don’t see what is proposed for the Miami Arena site to be anything special. Still, I do hope I am wrong.

Architectural Exceptionalism

As an American who has traveled the world I agree wholeheartedly. We need more American architectural exceptionalism and Miami young growing spot for it.

We already have architectural heritage, but apart from RAMSA’s proposed St. Regis Residences, which is more South Beach Streamline Modern rather than mainland Mediterranean Revival and older assorted prewar styles, practically every proposed tower is another box with some excuse like “tropical modern” B.S. slapped on it.

every proposed tower is a box ? in Miami we have some nice towers that are planned or are under construction and are not boxes like waldorf astoria , okan tower , e 11 eleven , 710 edge , one brickell city centre , one river point , miami river tower, 501 first , 888 brickell and 1428 brickell

Super Tall & Super Nice

The Waldorf Astoria is my least favorite box of them all bc it looks like it’s going to tip over haha.

The new Varabyeu Design super tall design is what every Miami supertall should strive to be.

It incorporates a green hill for the public, curves, glass, and spire. (Please disregard the long link, not many easily shareable photos yet.)

Miami should commission more works from Varabyeu Design…

The newly released rendering for the iconic supertall landmark on Brickell Key is out of this world!!! It has a mix of greenery, waves, texture, glass, and sleek lines.

Everything I’ve seen them put out captures the Miami aesthetic and pushes design forward.

Hope to see more designs by them in Brickell and throughout Miami!

Most these developers or who bankrolls them are foreign. It’s often out-of-state developers that give us more classic and pleasing designs.

Miami’s skyline is interesting because despite it being new, it already has layers of like style development… heritage buildings like the ones in older downtown, glorious 70s building on Biscayne, the 80s with SE financial center and the truly iconic Miami tower… 1990s with Santa Maria… 2000s with brickell… 2010s… now the generation of the 20s. World center, okan, citi centre, etc.

Brickell Modern Neoclassical Futurism

The 20s, 30s and beyond will see more advancements in design in Brickell too. I’m watching them go up every day and new plans coming out that look like nothing I’ve seen before anywhere.

Less Parking, Better Miami

Great design without the parking podium! MORE of this in Miami!

No parking podium, still a mediocre building.

I obviously know that there are technical issues that determine the height of buildings, so as not to harm aviation. But it is true that, very close to the MWC, there are several towers, already ready or under construction, much taller, such as 900 and
One Thoisand Museum to the east and Okan and those two huge towers planned in front of the train station.
So these new MWC buildings could be taller. This region is central and will be the middle of the city’s skyline. Something like the region between Dubai Media City and Dubai Marina, which includes four of the 100 tallest buildings in the world, such as Marina 101, Princess, 23 Marina and Elite, respectively 26, 27, 3e4 and 42.

The height was determined by revenue margins. Nothing more.

Really bad timing on the naming of the building especially since Crosby just passed away today

Speaking of size the living rooms of app 10x 12 are even smaller than many of the new mini condos in Vancouver BC.
Is this building another airbnb special?

Darling, size DOES matter. You can only do so much with a hotdog in a train station.

Agreed on height. They likely sold the air rights and given the market it may have been a prudent decision considering investor return.

There’s such a thing as too big when it comes to the erection of a building. We don’t want to block views, cause congestion, and get boring rectangle glass like NYC.

Honestly I don’t want a monster directly next to OKAN, I’d rather that building actually be visible.

Okan is already next two two monstrosities, Downtown 5th.

Anon

Downtown 5th is only 495′, and acts as a buffer between Okan and the prison. People are saying they want the Crosby (390′) to be a supertall (1,000+’) which would totally obscure Okan (890′). I think a 390′ Crosby next to a 890′ Okan is a good mix, actually.

What were they thinking?

The prison downtown is capturing national attention. Why is it placed downtown? It should be on an island.
