Royal Caribbean’s Global HQ At PortMiami Now Rising With Three Tower Cranes Installed, Will Offer Breathtaking Views Of Miami’s Skyline

Three tower cranes have now been installed at the construction site of Royal Caribbean’s Global Headquarters now under construction at PortMiami, marking the start of vertical construction of a campus that will bring house thousands of employees at the port.

Groundbreaking took place in July.

Royal Caribbean is building a state of the art $300 million campus at the port with amenities designed to lure top level talent to Miami. The complex will house 4,200 employees of the cruise line when complete, becoming what the company says will be Miami’s “first true corporate campus.”

Employees will enjoy spectacular unimpeded view of downtown Miami. Other amenities will include a soccer field, volleyball court, basketball court, fitness center, and electric car chargers.

Architect HOK designed a 10-story building with “no corners,” designed to look like a ship at rest. It will be surrounded by indigenous flora for landscaping.

The cruise line’s existing buildings at the port will be partly renovated and integrated into the campus, and partly demolished.

We’re not world class yet, but slowly getting there. If only we could kidnap the entire city govt of, say, Vancouver or Portland OR, and replace our city/county govt with them for at least a year!

As much as I can agree Miami’s governments are incompetent, I wouldn’t want Portland’s current government either. Letting self-proclaimed anarcho-communist spoiled brats destroy property, and homeless poop everywhere? No thanks!

A lot of these people are used to riding donkeys where they came from… Miami is a Step Up.

But given the chance they will bring baby donkeys as pets and then turn them loose in the wild as they did with the iguanas.

“Dallas is about 10 years behind Miami in innovation” ???

I think you mean Dallas is ahead 10 years of Miami innovation… Let me know when Miami receives thousands of tech jobs from a company relocating from another state.

You’re right in that, but people only move to Dallas because they have to make a living. Which is fine, but nobody actually aspires to live in Dallas or anywhere in Texas. Not the case with Miami.

Miami won’t be world class anytime soon because there are too many incompetent scumbags from struggling South American countries who have seats at the table. World class education? World class arts and entertainment? Burgeoning tech scene? Innovative planning? World class culture? No, no, no, no, and no. Not even the skyline is what it could have been with all of these thieves who have no standards for developing properties. Usually don’t comment, but that was just too funny. ??

Dallas has world class rodeos, world class bouffant hair, world class deep-fried inedible crap from the world class county fair. I mean everything about Dallas just screams world class doesn’t it. After all, isn’t that ‘King of the Hill’ show about all those sophisticated, cultured people from Dallas? 😉

Admit it, your just an insecure man in a sad little city, envious of all the better cities in this country that all the global tourists would rather visit than your little corner of the world.

Smart move from Royal Caribbean.
I mean, really, views of Palmetto or I-75 vs views of downtown Miami and right on the Port vs half hour or 45 minutes from the Port.

This is a very nice piece of architecture, hopefully this sparks further development and lures more top tier companies to Miami

Saying that this design will look like “a ship at rest” is a bit of a stretch I think.

Anyway, beautiful project and can’t wait to see it when it’s done.
