Yet Another Building Could Be Coming To Miami Worldcenter’s Block A, Massing Study Shows

Miami Worldcenter’s Block A could be getting a second tower, in addition to a recently submitted apartment tower proposal by Chicago developer Fifield, a massing study shows.

The study was released as part of an application to build the 47-story 499-foot Fifield tower with 533 residential units.

At least one more tower is shown on the same block in the drawing. Plans for the second have not yet been revealed.

Currently, Paramount Miami Worldcenter’s sales office is on the site where the second tower could be built.

Across the street, the Hines office tower and Paramount tower is shown in the schematics. Also shown is an additional tower at Worldcenter’s Block E.

ODP Architects, which is designing the first tower on the block, released the schematics on social media shortly after the Fifield tower was submitted to city review.

Can Club Space be considered a historic landmark?

No!

NO!

If Grand Central wasn’t, which was a legit historic building then no.

MWC transforming downtown Miami, one block at a time.

Really? Soon it will look like the old Bronx. Rows and rows of ugly apartment buildings.

You obviously didn’t see this area 10-15 years ago…it literally couldn’t get any worse

M.B.

This sounds great, but it’s a shame MWC did away with street parking. Sometimes one just wants to run in/out of a store and not have to pay $10+ in a gargantuan parking garage blocks down a street (OR valet)bg. I typically use metrorail/metromover for my downtown errands, but when that is not an option or inconvenient (bad storms, out of sevice etc), street parking would be a great old-time option to have. And who’s great idea in Miami Dade’s planning department, to sell out an entire street (9th Street btwm Miami ave and 2nd ave). They couldn’t just build the garage over the street and keep it open?

It’s a shame they didn’t use some of that space for bike lanes.

M.B.

….the least they could’ve done… SMH.

We need more bike lanes and public transportation. Leave the car home

B-but, muh self-driving cars!

There should have been 0 vehicular parking. Y’all keep complaining about traffic but build to cater to cars, which will only increase traffic. If we have less parking, then more people will be forced to use transit, which will decrease traffic and over the long run, improve transit. Transit can’t improve until ridership generates enough revenue and demand to rationalize increased public funding (i.e. your tax dollars). Then again, when you have a corrupt town that takes money for expansion of Metrorail and uses it for maintenance…I can see why you want more parking.

“If we have less parking, then more people will be forced to use transit”

Yeah.. and if we have people breathing less air, then more people will be forced to live in the ocean like the fish do.

Research the term – Slippery Slope.

@SMDM
Traffic is just a fact a life. NYC and DC have kick ass public transportation and still their traffic is horrific! A certain amount of the population will drive and a certain amount won’t that is just how life is, and yes we will always need parking garages, unless of course you are working on teleportation, the we will be all set.

If there is not enough parking to meet the needs of the users, they will go elsewhere and the project will fail. If you want to reduce the number of cars on the streets you will first need to change the minds of the people. Reducing parking does not change their minds.

Ok but this is downtown and you guys are acting like there isn’t already PLENTY of parking garages that aren’t used by residents on the weekends or after work hours. Have any of you gone downtown on the weekend? Outside of a heat game parking is super easy because downtown is a ghost town on the weekends. Central station has parking, there are also garages just a few blocks south. We don’t need more garages downtown.

This will probably be rejected for not enough parking.

Miami should have a giant parking garage in the middle of the City and let everyone walk and/or take meteromover around.

Anonymous

Not in the middle but on the edges to the city.

Yes, like Wynwood and Design District. Dedicated garages, that serve many people, shared uses, office patrons during the day, residential uses at night, and extra spaces for the visitors, etc. Charge monthly rates, and varying hourly rates.

Anonymous

Office garages empty at night and residential empty during the day really should be shared. Lots of other cities have this built into code.

As does Miami 21

Give it a rest.

Forget it.. these people go to bed and dream about parking.

Anonymous

Most dream about no parking and mass transit that involves walking on each end. Not a good solution in Miami weather.

Anonymous

Yeah, if doesn’t drop people off right in front of their door, forget about it.

SMDM

It’s truly a cultural issue. People are too damn lazy to walk 500 feet from the end of a parking lot to the Walmart doors let alone a quarter mile walk from a train or bus station to their house. Yes, weather is part of it, but y’all act like it doesn’t get hot and humid in Atlanta, or Chicago, NYC, or DC in the summers. People still suck it up and use the transit rain, snow, extreme heat, etc. Miami is obsessed with the car and it won’t change until either density across the county reaches a critical mass that kicks the public sector into overdrive on delivering a working rapid mass transit system; or people are willing to become multi-modal to make the current “transit network” work; or all the corrupt elected officials get out and let people who actually care about furthering Miami as a world class city and the day to day lives of their constituents take over and make radical changes.

Here’s one very simple approach. How about building hundreds of housing units near our Mass Rapid Transit Train system stops that already exist?

Speculation at it’s finest…

lol yeah all these proposed towers the last decade yet only 2 towers at World Center thus far. Won’t hold my breath in the shorterm but longterm now that some has been built, including the retail, others will come and build.

I think that’s been Nitin Motwani’s plan the whole time – hype it up and build the retail along with 1 awesome tower then wait for others to come to then flip the land to these newcomer developers. Not a bad idea but leads to excessive hype and what appears like unfulfilled promises.

You should actually try holding your breath

Both of these towers will probably be built before ground is broken on the hotel/convention center.

Anonymous

Anyone think it could be a Virgin Hotel? They are building hotels around the country now and will have their cruise terminal and train nearby. Maybe the super tall at the train station will feature a Virgin Hotel.

Anonymous

That would actually sound cool. But if the convention center gets built will it be to many rooms? Not sure.

Alto

It is just a mass diagram and does not mean much. As a matter of fact they are showing if i am not mistaken 2 buildings rather than 1 on the same block were Fifield is proposing this rental unit project. Obviously somthing else will get built but we are not sure when or what. It would have been great to combine WMC project with the Miami Innovation District because we need to genarate more work and office space instead of just more condo units; but i guess we are not there yet.

The anti-parking people just want everyone off the roads so they don’t have any traffic delays.

I have never heard of people that ride buses and trains complain about parking garages.
