Tower Crane Installed At Construction Site Of 43-Story Luma Miami Worldcenter

Downtown Miami’s 43-story Luma Miami Worldcenter is about to begin vertical construction with the help of a newly installed tower crane.

Video posted to social media taken from the Metromover yesterday showed the tower crane had been installed, with progress being made on the tower’s foundation.

The crane (or cranes) will eventually rise 599 feet above sea level, or 586 feet above ground, according to a filing with the FAA.

The tower itself will have a completed height of 493 feet above ground level, or 503 feet above sea level.

Developers Zom Living and The Moinian Group are building 434 residences, and they have said the building will offer the most luxurious rental apartments in Miami. The developers have secured $143 million in construction financing.

Miami Worldcenter will eventually include numerous apartment towers, with one (Caoba) already complete.

Stantec is the architect.

The real sin here is what the developers presented to the residents and city 5 years ago to gain approval for this project. It was all unicorns and rainbows then and it is not what is being delivered now. Nitin Motwani seems to have sold off most of his ‘approved’ parcels to other developers who are not holding to the original master plan. This area is becoming a neighborhood for short term AirBnBers and tourists. It’s not a place to live for full time Miami residents. Just another group of buildings for transients. No thanks.

Too slow. That whole area its still a construction mess. They are many years away from finishing anything usable. Who is going to live in that mess? When is the retail portion going to open? They havent delivered on anything they promesed many years ago.

This area sat empty and desolate for over twenty years but Miami World Center is not moving fast enough you crybabies?

Miami has to have the most ignorant citizens I’ve ever seen.

There is nothing wrong with their comments. Yes, the area was empty and looked horrible. But, it still looks like shit, and they have not delivered what was promised…yet. Take a look at the original promo video. It looked too good to be true, and it was. By contrast, Branson says he will build a terminal at the port soon, and I bet he will. Melo starts building before it even gets announced here. I think these guys bit way more than they could chew. The previous comments were not wrong, or negative. They just started the obvious. You don’t have to get pissed off at the truth. It is what it is.

Right, I’m sure Melo would make a far superior product, even considering how butchered the Marriott proposal became and Macy’s/Bloomingdale’s pulled out.

The developers of Miami World Center promised who what? Your whole retort sounds silly, “Yes, the area was empty and looked horrible. But, it still looks like shit..,” wtf?!!!

All you whiners need to just stick to playing with your X-box and leave the development of downtown to the professionals.

The city a-hole. Or anyone who saw the original promo video and thought…”wow, I want to live there”. What is being built does not compare to what was marketed. That’s why.

You little booger eaters need to get out on your own and you’ll see what you can afford. I bet what they’re building and built so far downtown is still too expensive for you crybabies.

You really haven’t traveled much.

Relax retards.. MWC is a work in process.. if you walk around the project, you can already see the improvement.

Project is still in it’s infancy, with many more developers buying parcels, and adding more buildings.

“Project is still in it’s infancy”

It’s gonna be very difficult getting these whining dimwits to understand this one simple point.

soooo do you remember what this area looked 5 years ago? You seem to be a minute man.

Yes. It looked like shit. Now it looks like shit with one beautiful building and one ugly building, and another ugly building in the works.

Where is the Marriott and the convention center? Where are the office buildings? Where are the other condo towers?. Where are Macy’s and Bloomingdales? Developers in this town promise the world, and with few exceptions, fall way short. I would rather they don’t hype and deliver more, than the usual bull we have all come to expect. Everyone here knows this is true. If 2 towers are promised, only the shortest one gets built. I’m still waiting for Banco Santander, or One River Point, or Island Gardens, or……

It only took 7 years to build Hudson Yards. Compare it to MWC and our project falls WAY short on results. Hell. People are living, eating, drinking, and enjoying all the Yard has to offer with more to come. Don’t try to make it sound like MWC is all that. Yes, its 100% better than what was there, but it has become a shadow of the hyped-up plan. Maybe in 10 more years we can all be proud of it. Not yet.

Gee, I wonder what you guys would’ve said back in the when all of Miami was still swampland?

Anonymous

That’s a bull shit comparison. The truth is the place is still more than half empty, rubble and weeds (no you cant smoke those). This did not as well as they thought.

Anonymous

Nor did they get commitments to build and develop like they thought they were going to. The overall original plan was huge. What have they finished? 2 buildings and some retail? No wait…nothing is finished. How long has it been?

I guess you people need Moshe Mana to show you how it’s done, Nitin Motwani is too good for you guys.

Between Paramount, Caoba, the retail and all the work on the roads and sidewalks the developers and their lenders have pumped in probably close to a billion dollars in construction. This is a major commitment to the neighborhood and to Miami, and will result in more tax income to the city/county, more housing units, more stores and restaurants, more jobs, a better looking neighborhood, etc. I’m sure the developers would love for it to all come together faster, but honestly everyone should be encouraging and supporting and lobbying local politicians to do the same, instead of whining about delays in everything coming together.
