Worldcenter To Add 24-Level Hotel, With Four Floors Of Retail

Architect NBWW posted updated information on their website yesterday about Miami Worldcenter’s newly minted Block F East, located south of the Paramount condo tower.

According to the website, the site will include a 24-level hotel with 250 keys.

There will also be four levels of retail with 200,000 square feet of space.

Construction is already underway on a portion of the retail project on an adjacent block, according to a project representative.

Can’t wait for this project to move forward so I can see how those blocks get filled up. Finally, this will be a catalyst for the area and it will tie up the Omni Area with downtown, it will all look like a much bigger city center from Brickell, all the way to the fringes of Edgewater.

You’re right.. I’m sure this project will generate development in Omni area, just to the north.

Loving this so called “strip mall” by the BCC groupies.

Strip Mall or not, and by looking at these renederings, WCM will be awesome. I think the retail component looks inviting and i totally prefer the open air concept rather than the previous mall intention.

I would love to see a nice bowling place, a beer garden, a food hall, an i-max theater, and stuff that we still don’t have in downtown.

Is there a master site plan for this project? These renderings are great but never provide any context for the reader.

I think the best part of this project is the open plazas and the walkable boulevards. Great design folks…
Miami desperately needs more projects like this…

I am also in favor of the open plaza; I know many people criticize the weather in Miami, that it rains a lot, that it is too humid but compared to northern states we have moderate winters and we should take advantage that most of the year we can hang outside. I really hope they do a phenomenal job with the landscape since it will be a MAJOR component for this project…please do something different and stress on the shaded areas and massive trees.

It seems it will be the first and only plaza in Miami. I am also excited by this.

250 keys?

Keys is an industry term for hotels to describe the number of available units to rent. Some larger units can come with multiple rooms under one key.

Miami simply cannot support all this retail, even with the population growth, retail growth is slowing or contracting.

There is no doubt that building this will be better than what is and was there and I’m excited about that. I’m hesitant to see more retail, particularly if it’s higher end retail like BCC. I live in the immediate area and that mall is largely dead, retail-wise. If that’s the case in the heart of affluent Brickell, I don’t think it’s going to be much better in the middle of overtown.

I’m worried.

BCC dead? Half the shops aren’t opened yet and there’s always a lot of traffic. I also live in Brickell…

There may be some increased foot traffic over the last few weeks, but it’s rare that I see people with shopping bags there.

Too much crap selling stores but no gym, not even one, none, for the entire Downtown, Edgewater, Midtown residents. I guess Developers are not that smart. They don’t know what works.

This project will be the # 1 in all that area , like the great Capitals of the World ……

I agree 100%, this area will be amazing not only for locals but also for tourists….and I am not a broker. The special thing about this area, is that there is still remaining space for future projects that will happen without a doubt. Just look at what happened when BCC was announced, SLS Lux, Brickell Heights, MyBrickell, Brickell Flatiron, 1010 Brickell, The Bond…they all came after the mall was announced. So I have a lot of hope on these type of development because they generate new developments almost by osmosis and fortunately there is space for more. Besides, for some reason a like the downtown Miami and I am excluding Brickell on this one (not that I don’t like Brickell), but I am talking our old downtown. And I believe this project will help tremendously our downtown.

The outdoor shops and large open space remind me of Merrick Park.

After seeing how BCC turned out — hey, it’s just another mall, inward facing, tons of blank walls, visible parking, and dead streetscapes — this seems promising. It looks very open and heterogeneous, different projects all coalescing into a new neighborhood. Renderings of course never truly reflect the finished product, which is often much flatter and cheaper looking, but maybe this will be a surprise.

Pick up a copy and get the government telling developers how high their buildings should be.

Not everything has to be super tall, there is certain elegance in mid rise buildings
