Worldcenter Closes Road Where They Plan To Build 7th Street Promenade

Miami Worldcenter has closed off 7th Street, where they plan to build a promenade lined with retail and restaurants.

Construction is underway on the first of two towers called the 7th Street Apartments that will be located next to the promenade.  A total of 872 apartments are planned between the two 7th street towers, known as Block G.

On the north side of the street, plans for a property known as Block E remain undefined.

I just hope they plant actual trees in the promenade and not palm trees. The shade would be greatly appreciated, especially during the summer.

100% agree – we need a ton more trees for shade everywhere

My guess is that this will take about 3 years to be completed, but it will definitely transform the entire area west of the Freedom Tower. So it is definitely a welcome change.

Absolutely. The infill and accompanying foot traffic of this, Paramount, and Brightline will make the area unrecognizable.

Paramount will be completed by December 2018 which is the 50th birthday of the developing manager for Paramount, in which he plans to celebrate it on the roof of Paramount. Those were his words. Can it be completed by then ? We shall see.

Interesting, an agent for Tibor Hollo told us he wanted to celebrate his 90th birthday with the completion of Panorama. Being only a year away, I hope he gets his wish.

Walked around the ” Paramount ” construction site yesterday one block over and saw only two workers on site doing nothing. Slow is an understatement with MWC.

At this rate the project will take another 10 years to finalize.

Completely? Probably but in the meantime there will be an additional 4-5 towers where there are none the next 3-4 years.

Is 7th Street going to be permanently closed or just during the duration of construction?

Closed permanently. It’ll be a cafe and retail lined promenade similar to Lincoln Road.

Lets hope you you are right about the Lincoln Road part. This area is neither the beach nor Brickell. The surrounding neighborhoods, empty lots, lack of permanent residents, and dark warehouses might keep people away and the derelicts and riff-raff will move in. I feel safe in Brickell or LR but not so much on 7th street. After an event at the Arsht, my wife and I get out of Dodge fast. Where to? Brickell or LR.

This neighborhood is nowhere near being like the ones you’re stating as its like saying Brickell was safe 15 years ago. This area will be the safe area you’re wanting it to be 5-6 years from now. The promenade will be have instant foot traffic as its being built with residential towers above it unlike Lincoln Road.

I hope you are right.
