Worldcenter Announces The Completion Of Block H Retail, Apartment, & Parking Components

Miami Worldcenter recently completed several key components of the $4 billlion project, its developers announced today.

In a press release, Worldcenter said the following were recently completed at Worldcenter’s Block H:

  • 50,000 square feet of street-level and rooftop retail space
  • The 43-story Bezel Miami apartment tower
  • A 922-space public parking garage

In total, 176,000 square feet of retail has now been completed at Worldcenter. Another 124,000 square feet is under construction and on track for completion by the end of 2022, bringing the total to 300,000 square feet.

Announced retail tenants include Chicago’s Maple & Ash and etta restaurants, Miami chef Michael Beltran’s Brasserie Laurel and El Vecino, Bowlero, Sephora, and Lucid Motors.

In addition to Bezel, the 60-story Paramount Miami Worldcenter, and the 43-story Caoba apartment building have already been completed.

A 351-room citizenM hotel is under construction and expected to open in Spring.

Construction is also now underway at the 52-story Miami World Tower, the 50-story Legacy Hotel & Residences, and a 40-story second tower at Caoba.

Plans are now in the works for future towers including Kenect, which will have 450 “hospitality-oriented” apartments, The Crosby with 450 condos, and a three-tower project by Witkoff Group with 2,000 residential units, 550,000 square feet of office space and 50,000 square feet of retail.

Worldcenter’s developers also said they are building World Square, a 20,000-square-foot public plaza and park with shade trees, artwork, and pedestrian areas lined with dining, entertainment, and retail.

Now that we have all this new parking downtown, maybe we can finally build out the Biscayne green project to really activate the entire area!

That is very much needed as more and more residents move in to the area.

Not really. It’s just factually inaccurate. The retail spaces are currently dirt floors with some rebar.

So much for the “high street retail” concept we were told when the enclosed mall with Bloomingdale’s and a new Macy’s was proposed. Instead, we get a parking garage fronting a plaza. The best which could be done is stick some ads along the top walls akin to LA Live, instead of crappy murals.

Bloomingdales and Macys are too busy closing stores to expand.

A low-rose museum would be great to surround the Freedom Tower

If you want to a museum, go across the street to Perez’s museum.

MDC getting out of the real estate business, and a condo tower by RAMSA would be great behind Freedom Tower.

does anyone else live here and wonder how all of these outdoor hangout spots will be used considering the weather only allows a good 4 months a year?
