Waldorf Astoria To Open At 300 Biscayne, Becoming Miami’s Tallest

Miami is getting a Waldorf Astoria in a new tower being developed at 300 Biscayne Boulevard, which will become the tallest building in Florida.

The Waldorf Astoria Hotel and Residences Miami was announced today in a press release.

It will include 140 hotel rooms and 400 condos, Bloomberg is reporting. Total sales of condo residences are expected to top $1 billion.

The tower itself will become the tallest in Miami at 1,049 feet above sea level, and 1,041 feet above ground – the maximum permitted in Miami due to airport flight paths. Previously, developer PMG said that the project would rise between 88 and 94 floors.

Miami’s current tallest building is Panorama Tower in Brickell, which stands 868 feet above ground, and 876 feet above sea level.

PMG, S2 Development, and Greybrook Realty Partners are the developers.

Sieger Suarez is the architect, with the design of the new Waldorf tower said to resemble nine offset glass cubes.

looks similar but looks more like some floors are just pushed out . Miami’s is independent 10 floor height boxes with strings. this one is 3x taller too.

But correct in generalizing that nothing is really ‘unique’ – well other than the egg building in London.

I see.. in your world, whatever your “opinion” is about architecture, nobody better have a “factual” view about about the subject. Look up the word – fact, it’s in the dictionary. Maybe then next time you’ll be more mature instead of being so offended when you read what someone else wrote.

He’s not a person that acts like a president, the last one that acted as a president was Obama and did a lousy job

This clown put the Germans on their place, call the OPEP extorsionist ( and they are), put Venezuela and Cuba in their place, etc

But you liberals can’t deny the anger that he’s delivering everything he offer in his campaign

And I
Don’t belive the darse of all these women on Kavanaugh
He was investigated 6 times and nobody came forward , but now with the false image of being anti abortion, toe women from the left and the activists lawyers will do anything to smears his name, destroy his career and family

And I belive that it’s better to kill the rapist instead of the unborn baby!!!!

Yeah, believe anything Cheeto man tells you. If he tell you cons that hot boiling water is cold, you’ll believe it. And I’m sorry you were jobless and your life was so miserable the whole time Obama was in office. Poor Obama, all he had to do was figure out how to stop this country’s economy from it’s hemorrhage of 700,000 jobs a month before he took office, and initiate a stimulus bill while Republicons were kicking and scratching, moaning and groaning, and bitching and whining while doing nothing. And I bet you enjoyed those lower gas prices at the pump while Obama was in office, didn’t you? And what has Cheeto man delivered or what depressing economy did he save you from? Has Mexico paid for or built his border wall yet? What Business or corporation that moved overseas has come back to the USA? Oh, I forgot, tariffs are going to fix everything and coal mining is going to make West Virginia and Kentucky “Great Again.” And as far as Kavanaugh is concerned, of course you weasely little cons are going to cry about what’s happening to him. Hell, you cons fought tooth and nail to keep Obama’s nominees – Merrick Garland and Susan Collins from a Supreme Court nomination… now you wanna boo hoo like little crybabies over Kavanaugh. GMAFB!

Gee!! You really sound resentful….. still denying that Obama’s era was BS!!

He had nothing to do with low gas prices! Even he opposed Fracking that made the price of gas low and did anything possible to avoid USA to be energy independent….

He predicted that the GPD will never go up,and now it’s ( no thanks to him, but the change of all the regulations he imposed)

He hardly corrected the economy in 8 years after spending 10 trillions ( and he caused GWB of non patriotic for increasing the debt)

Who cares about the wall, the Cheeto is doing what’s has to be done … enforcement and respect of the law, if not everyone will come here( you Democrats want that, to get more people in welfare that are your only followers)

Less unemployment, even in Latinos and blacks
Less people in welfare

And many, many more improvements that the Democratic controles media , the hypocrites of Hollywood and the leftist snowflakes from colleges Will never accept !!!!!

♥️?????????????‍???‍??‍???‍???‍???‍???‍???‍??✌️✌️??????????????

Hurray for Trump !!! He may not act like a president but has done more for this country than any other , may be because he’s a heartless businessman and not a sleezy Lawyer…..

Oh, your feelings are hurt? When you say something stupid like “Obama’s era was BS!!” then you’re saying you economically lived and did financially horrible during the his entire term in office! Cutout the BS. You can’t tell us you didn’t worry about keeping and having a job before Obama became president which definitely improved your lot on life. The economy was too f-ked up for you not to be scared before Obama and the Democrats took over.

Many of this points that are nothing out of the extraordinary are the things Obama never provided and made a lot of people vote for Cheeto guy instead of Hillary and the Russians had nothing to do with my vote

I Didn’t wanted Hillary to continue the lefty spiral down of the administration and the welfare state and if you missed her and how the country would have become with her …. move to Detroit , Chicago or enjoy the smell of poop ? on the street and the delinquency of cites like San Francisco and Seattle ????

No one moved to Iran. That list of BS is either a continuation of the upward tract that Obama put this country on, or it’s just meaningless garble that Cons point to that Trump spouts to brag about himself. I’ll give you a for instance. Do you know that Obama was seeking more federal funds from a republican controlled Congress for border security and they were vehemently against it? But now we see this Con above bragging about “Border control enforcement.” I mean, these clowns are funny!

You see, I can’t list all of Obama’s achievements in a forum like this because the list is far too long… and besides, these cons wouldn’t care anyway, they just hate Obama or all democrats for that matter.

Ultra got the boot because Carollo probably wants to run for mayor. He’s trying to suck up to the senior citizen downtown NIMBYs. Why else would he negotiate a deal and then oppose it at the commission meeting? He wanted to make a big show and make Ken Russell look bad at the same time.

VERY PREMATURE TO ANNOUNCE THIS — clearly the market wont absorb this many condos. PMG is a great developer but the sales needed to make this financially feasible, you are looking at this being developed in the next cycle — say 2020-2024 if then. That’s when we can expect the current supply to most get absorbed. Great publicity though.

Can we get some better renderings? I like the brand but it does seem out of place there. I would expect somewhere in Sunny Isles, Bal Harbor, or even Brickell. There’s no beach, no boat dock, and its next to X Miami which is for millennials with scheduled parties, dj’s, and all the music festivals at bayside… that Ryan can sure sell heat in hell. I guess if it works for 1000 it will work here.
