Under-Construction 691-Foot Legacy Tower At Worldcenter Announces Big Expansion

The developer of Legacy Miami Worldcenter has announced plans to build an even bigger tower after buying more land.

Royal Palm Companies paid $4.45 million for a property adjacent to the active construction site, adding 7,500 square feet of land to the development.

With the newly acquired land, the health center component of the tower will expand, the developer told the SFBJ in a statement.

The Blue Zones Medical and Wellbeing Center at Legacy will increase in size to 160,000 square feet, from 100,000 square feet originally planned.

California-based Adventist Health will operate the Blue Zones medical center, and agreed to rent 10 floors in one of the largest leases in downtown Miami history.

The $500 million Legacy tower broke ground in August 2021 and is planned to rise 55 stories, or 691 feet. The tower will include 310 condos and 210 hotel rooms, in addition to the health center.

I think this tower is one of the most beautiful in Miami, like Aston Martin, Okan and One Thousand Museum. It’s a shame we have so many towers with poorer architecture in Downtowm, like Yotelpad or Caoba.

And Caoba looks like royalty compared to Downtown 5th.

And that’s what women say about you – “Its a shame he is not 28yrs old, 6ft 5inches tall, and weights 235lbs of nothing but lean muscle.” Remember, the majority of men are not and do not look like that.

Exactly! It should go to the full max of 1049ft

Because, as part of the MWC plan, Paramount was supposed to be the center point and therefore tallest tower.. but I agree, this tower would have been great as a supertall too

Pretty cool and hopefully will give Jackson some relief, although i will say i’m not sure how much justice a bigger podium is gonna do for this building. Fingers crossed.

If they change it to some Swiss cheese-holed parking podium with a mural as bad as on the building to be demolished, I’m going to puke.

GREAT BUY!!!! I was getting this building’s flyer blasted to my email for several months. Prices cuts happened, and now the developers got a density boost for pennies on the dollar. Seller still did very well!

Cool, hopefully the architecture does not deviate from the symmetry and handsome spire.

Hey, you guys want to know something funny?

When I first saw the headline and glanced at the photo, which appears to show a pine tree leaning against a fence, I said to myself, “Self, that must be the tree that they put on top of the building to symbolize that it is topped off, and now since they’re expanding the building, they took the tree down again!”

Then after reading the article I realized none of that is accurate, and in fact it’s just a tree that happens to be growing there, at which point I had a nice chuckle at my own expense.

Seeing is believing.
Until I see that rooftop pool, I will not believe it will end up looking like in the renderings.

Whats crazy to me is that Miami Worldcenter has *grown* in scope since it’s initial conception. The Crosby (and the lot directly to the east, a still unannounced tower) and this expansion of Legacy are the two latest examples. Can’t wait to see how this part of town continues to develop, especially this developpment.

I am interested to know how tall the tower East of Crosby will be. My understanding is it can have a max of 275 units.

Certainly it has grown, but in quantity over quality, notwithstanding this building of course. Like CitizenM over a swooping curved Marriott tower, and a “jewel box” bowling alley over Bloomingdale’s, The Crosby looks to be a disappointment.

How do you feel Crosby is a disappointment. I envision it will look like Hyde Beach House which is pretty.

I actually like the open street concept as opposed to the increasingly dated enclosed mall concept. And the citizen M hotel looks fantastic – great lighting scheme, modest scale, and fun colorful artwork from Friends With You.

^^Understandable. But what a gorgeous rendering. Hope it happens, and as proposed.

It’s really beautiful an infinity rooftop pool is always a beautiful thing.

If you still believe the buildings will look like initial sketches, you likely believe that the profile picture on the dating app is what you are going get on Move-In day.

Only the very bottom 4% or so of people expect that the renderings are going to looking exactly like the renderings.

Look at how terrible Society turned out compared to its renderings. The Legacy design is fabulous, what I would be worried about is how high the HOA will be there to sustain such spaces.

Thanks, I usually go off of the construction documents (which have all been released for this building) but the renders look nice.

The building still looks fantastic in the construction docs. Also, the execution of Paramount is pretty spot on so I’m guessing the quality of Legacy will be similar.

Where do you get the construction docs can it be done online?
