In the Park West neighborhood of downtown Miami, crews were installing a tower crane at the construction of the Legacy tower at Miami Worldcenter this morning.
The crane marks the start of vertical construction at Legacy.
A foundation pour took place in June 2022, shortly after the developers acquired an adjacent parcel with plans to integrate it.
Legacy Miami Worldcenter is planned to rise 55 stories, or 691 feet, with a design described as “neo-futuristic.”
It will feature a “Singapore inspired” infinity-edge rooftop pool suspended 500 feet in the air, and a large atrium at the top of the tower.
The $500 million Legacy will also include 310 condos (said to be fully sold out), 219 hotel rooms (managed by Accor under their Morgans Original flag), multiple pools, a spa and fitness area, a shul with a kosher kitchen, restaurants and lounges, and a 10-story $100M Blue Zones health center.
A total of four towers are currently under construction at Worldcenter, including Legacy, Caoba 2, Miami World Tower 1, and The Crosby.
