New Renderings Of Worldcenter’s High Street Retail Scheme

Miami Worldcenter has applied for a warrant with the city’s Planning & Zoning Department that will allow for construction of the project’s “High Street Retail” outdoor mall.

In 2015, the developers had obtained a warrant to build an enclosed indoor mall, but decided earlier this year to revise those plans.

In July, the new plans were reviewed and approved by the Urban Design Review Board, subject to certain conditions (see below.) By law, the decision on the new warrant cannot be issued prior to October 6, and neighbors can still appeal the decision for several weeks afterwards.

So all the retail faces NE 1st Ave and the internal paseo. NE 2nd ave will just be car in-gress and egress. Wont make for a very pleasing metromover entrance but I guess NE 2nd Ave was forever marred by the terrible back sides of the Biscayne wall towers.

Please have this done Before the Superbowl 2020. That should be the goal because all eyes Will be on Miami. Especially in this area which will be where Superbowl experience will be setup.

I’ve been back/forth for some time. Wasn’t sure about the outdoor mall vs indoor. There was some uncertainty for a bit — when was the groundbreaking going to happen? I sat on the fence while two of my friends bought at Paramount in October last year. There places have appreciated based on the increase in list prices by 15 and 20 percent. The site is well under construction, the renderings look great and they keep adding amenities (the latest: a basketball 1/2 court, a racquetball court, an observatory and a golf simulator). With two years until it’s built and 1000 museum across the street at 2-3x price per square foot (yes, famous architect, water views and a heliport etc) and 20 less amenities, I believe there’s plenty of upside and frankly I want to live there. I am done fighting it. I think this will the center of Miami, with everything around it and a one of a kind building in the world (30 some odd amenities). I will be moving forward with my purchase. Thank you for listening!

I really hope they consider leaving the option open for the connections on the upper floors that go over the streets to be built some time in the future. It’s a real shame if they lose this feature. It’s really convenient to be able to cross the street from an upper floor, especially in a busy downtown area.

Wonder what year they are thinking of completing now. Also, the marriott has been very hush hush about any further development west of this no?

Great Project but malls are on the way out!!…I personally only shop online! I do like to get ice cream at the mall and people watch.

You may not, but plenty of people still go to the mall.. frankly it will depends on location.. Brickell CityCenter will be a popular Mall.. Bal Harbor, Aventura, Dadeland are popular, etc.. with the rain and super hot temperatures Malls will stay popular in Florida.

They only have two renderings? So far looks pretty underwhelming…

Really?
I’ll take this any day so I don’t have to deal with those ugly, empty lots of wasteland.

Do you live in one of the 4 towers on Biscayne? If not, then what exactly do you have to “deal” with?

His heart drops every time he looks at the lots as he drives by on his way to his valet parking job in Brickell.

Don’t thumbdown the guy… it does look pretty underwhelming compared to what was initially proposed. Go see MWC website and you’ll see how amazing it was before. I was hoping the high-retail concept would be as nice or even better… but I think we’ll have a lot less than MIAMI WORLD CENTER
