Waldorf Astoria Residences Reaches 84% Sold, Groundbreaking In Summer

Developers of the 100-story Waldorf Astoria tower are reporting strong sales and are on track to break ground within months, according to Miami Today.

In total, 84% of the 360 condo units have now been sold, developers said.

The tower will also include 205 hotel keys.

Groundbreaking is on track for this summer, the developers added.

The 1,049-foot tower will become the tallest ever built in Miami.

Carlos Ott is the concept designer, with Sieger Suarez the architect of record.

PMG and Greybrook are the developers.

I really wish Miami could build taller….If it wasn’t for the airport in the way I think someone would have build the tallest residential building in the US during this development boom.

I never understand the obsession with height in this comments section. Having the airport in such close proximity to downtown is a great perk for those who travel often. MIA is much more accessible than many other major metropolitan airports.

Miami residents benefit more from the airport’s current location than having a handful of taller condos

These buildings are roughly the size of the Chrysler building. It’s a good height. Beyond that, there are technical issues with elevators, plumbing, inconvenient sky lobbies, etc.

Yeah unfortunately the height obsessed bozos on here are the ones who comment the most. Not sure what they are overcompensating for so much.

LOL, we need more height in downtown? 1000 ft tower isnt enough? Meanwhile people are in an uproar about five story buildings replacing the two story bunkers in Little Havana.

Hmmm… let’s see.

Tourist can get to Miami by car?.. nope.

Tourist can get to Miami by boat?.. nah.

Tourist can get to Miami by train?.. forget it.

Well, I guess people are stuck with only one way to get in and out of Miami, and that’s by airplane .

Will they build anything next to the freedom tower?. Too many gaps in the skyline.

Didn’t they build Bezel next to freedom tower and Natiivo behind it. There needs to be some plaza space and public areas to break it up a little.

Stacked boxes and a giant toenail clipper. All we need is a giant statue of an undeserving elected official in a certain nearby park renamed after an undeserving elected official.

Someone will pick it up, it’s not a dead deal yet. Miami needs a signature observatory so I hope they will build it soon!

Thank you urban developers… you are helping to preserve the great natural beauty of America by building in cities and not created sprawl into undeveloped areas. Thank you

Between this and Okan Tower, maybe Miami will have its own Empire State Building and Chrysler Building race. Of course, we all know what happened around the time both were completed…

I actually don’t quite like this building. The main reason being I think it would look better, and make the skyline better, if it tapered off at the top and not just have a cube the same size as the othe ones off-set.

Ok….great, 84% sold. So when will PMG stop whacking off and actually start building? Are they waiting until they’re 127% sold to shoot their wad?

The evacuation of residents from downtown Miami during future hurricanes will be crazy. There could also be an insurance crisis if a cat 4 or 5 storm makes a direct hit on downtown.

You were probably the one who said Aston Martin wasn’t happening and they’re just stirring dirt with a concrete mix.

This time is different…until it’s not. Simple supply/demand dynamics since building thousands of units takes time and once you start you must finish so when the pendulum inevitably swings cycles keep cycling
