These Twin Rental Towers Will Replace Grand Central At Worldcenter

Miami Worldcenter LLC has filed plans to build a twin tower residential project called 7th Street Apartments on the former Grand Central property, known as Block G.

Worldcenter’s 7th Street Promenade will run in between the Block G apartment towers and Block E. To the west will be Marriott World Expo Center, while the Mall at Worldcenter is planned to the east.

Both towers will be built as rental apartments. Units will be small, with about 65% of apartments either studios or one bedrooms.

The project’s east tower will rise 43 stories, or 442 feet. It will have 450 units. The west tower will top off at 40 floors, or 413 feet, with 422 units planned. The overall highest point of the structure will be 478 feet above ground.

Unit breakdown:

  • Studio – 252 (29%)
  • One Bedroom  – 311 (36%)
  • Two Bedroom – 248 (28%)
  • Three Bedroom – 61 (7%)

The combined total number of units between both towers is 872. A ten-level parking garage will have 1,047 parking spaces.

Cohen Freedman Encinosa is the architect. Miami’s UDRB is reviewing the plans at a meeting today.
