Worldcenter Will Have Enough Restaurants To Serve Thousands

Miami Worlcenter’s newly filed utility plan shows that there will be nearly as much restaurant space as retail.

According to a revised utility deal with Miami Dade Water and Sewer this month, the project will have 202,391 square feet of full service restaurant, 50,000 square feet of fast food restaurant, and 21,500 square feet of bar and cocktail space.

With that amount of restaurant space, Worldcenter could have enough restaurant to serve about 17,000 diners at a time, assuming an average restaurant size of 15 square feet per person.

According to the newly revised master plan, the project will now include:

  • 281,191 square feet of retail
  • 5,862 residential units
  • 202,391 square feet of full service restaurant
  • 50,000 square feet of fast food restaurant
  • 21,500 square feet of bar or coktail lounge
  • 250 hotel rooms
  • 506,500 square feet of office
  • 26 bungalows

The Marriott at Worldcenter is under a separate agreement.

The new 45-story Hines office building will go on the same block as Paramount and the high street retail. At the Paramount sales center site across the street (known as Block A), a residential project with 1,600 units is planned.

Hmmm…In the 5th render photo, wasn’t the section where the water fountain spouts are, a reddish circle and now it’s a Green/grass rectangle ??

It looks like a green grass rectangle with water spots at the edges.

Yes, I too remember the reddish circle with the water things in the previous renders of the high street open air MWC posts. Seems like every time I see a new post render of MWC, something has changed.

next week it’ll probably change again. Watch them bust out with a blue triangle with the water fountain spouts.

Very walkable, connected to mass transit, close to museums, retail, and parks. This is the antithesis of suburban. This hatred towards parking is becoming old.

I completely agree, given the reputation of the clubs mentioned. I like night clubbing with my friends, but we don’t do drugs. So some clean fresh night clubs would be nice.

I just don’t see the demand. City Centre is doing fine, but its not busy at all. Guess the only things that are busy there are the restaurants. Design district is empty most of the week too. I just don’t see the support for this amount of retail and food space, along with the train station too.

Flymia, be calm…you’re witnessing this area taking baby steps right now. Thousands more apartment units will get built in the Design District, Midtown, Wynnwood, Downtown, and even Brickell is not finished yet. Everything you see now being built and more is what Miami has been waiting for.

Yes, I really believe all of it will get built. Miamians are tired of the snobbish attitude of Miami Beach, in particular, that place called “South Beach.” Remember, they said they don’t want Gambling. Good, the mainland will take it and all the cool happenings that come with it. We’re seeing Miami being transformed into a much more exciting place right before our eyes!.
