MIAMI| World Trade Center Miami (PortSide Miami)

This is an awesome development in Miami.

PlusUrbia Reveals Plans for Port Miami 2035 World Trade Center

Quote:
Plans for building a brand new sea-side commercial district, World Trade Center, on the west end of Dodge Island at the Port of Miami, were first announced in 2011.

The port had announced a competition soliciting construction plans for its 2035 master plan. The competition now has a finalist - PlusUrbia, a local design firm, which has released its renderings for the port, reports Curbed.

The Port of Miami, popularly known as PortMiami is the largest operating container port of Florida. It is using a planning tool, POM 2035 to support business sustainability and carry out its operations in an environment friendly manner.

The new commercial project is a part of the Miami-Dade County's Comprehensive Development Master Plan (CDMP) and hopes to prepare the port to compete heavily in the coming future.

PortMiami had announced requirements, that the master plan will need to adopt in its design. The requirements include four efficient cruise terminals and three cruise berth terminals. Plans for development in the nearby Biscayne Bay were also asserted. The area will get new retail and office spaces including a megayacht marina.

Check out the renderings of PortMiami's master plan of The World Trade Center at ExMiami.

Apart from the commercial plans, PortMiami has been signing development plans to improve its infrastructure as well.

In 2012, PortMiami signed an agreement with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to seal a deal that will enable heavy load ships to enter the port. In 2010, construction on the Port of Miami Tunnel started which would connect McArthur Causeway on Watson Island and PortMiami on Dodge island. The Tunnel is slated to be completed by May 2014.

The Airport may prevent such towers. Remember, they height limits in place around downtown?

I'm not so sure about this plan all though some of the proposals are good. I don't think the southwest portion of the Port which is undeveloped should be used to build another marina & some more residential highrises. This portion of land should be used to expand the cargo facilities instead if Miami wants to remain a competitive port especially with the deepening of the channel underway to be able to handle the super Panamex ships once the Panama Canal is done deepening in 2014.

They could use all the dirt that they have from this project and dump it into Biscayne Bay to expand the cargo facilities if they want to.

That would sure be an excellent spot for a hotel/casino. I'm looking forward to all the changes coming to South Florida.

Looks nice but I'm not a big fan of the concept (neither are too many other Miamians). Land at the port is very finite and that land should be saved for port uses. They may not need the land now but when they do in the future it will be tough to get it back once hotels and offices are built there (who wants to live in a port with all the shipping related noise anyway?). Plus getting in and out the port isn't easy. The Port of Miami needs money to pay for dredging but there has to be other ways to get it other than selling off its land.

Since this part of the port is that much farther from the airport than downtown is, wouldn't that entail higher height limits?

I agree, the location is terrible. That island should only be for the port/cruise terminal and maybe utilities.

Beckham’s soccer plans conflict with PortMiami’s business plan

Quote:
Of all the plans to inject more revenue into PortMiami’s strapped finances, none has the sizzle of David Beckham’s personal soccer team. But can the most indebted port on the East Coast afford the fun and games?

That’s a central question facing elected leaders as they consider Beckham’s offer to bring professional soccer back to Miami in exchange for a stadium site at the port.

The nine acres he wants near the shallows of PortMiami’s southwest corner would upend the port’s own detailed plans for millions of dollars in new real estate income from a proposed trade and tourism center that could contain as much as 7 million square feet of new revenue-generating space. The controversial venture, opposed by Miami’s commercial real estate industry, was designed to help PortMiami create a new profit source as it manages a debt load quickly nearing the $1 billion mark.

The port’s financial challenges — Moody’s downgraded its credit rating last fall, citing concerns about a cash squeeze — raise the stakes for Beckham as his team pursues a stadium footprint that would account for about 25 percent of the land the port wants for commercial development. Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez has said he will insist on compensation for any stadium land, but the deal could hinge on just how bullish the county should be on the port’s ability to be downtown’s next big commercial district.

“The conversation about soccer has never been just about soccer,’’ Gimenez said Saturday. “If a stadium can be a catalyst to development, we’re interested. If a stadium is going to be a hindrance, we’re not interested.”

Soccer backers see the port’s commercial strategy as too ambitious, and argue that a stadium with Beckham’s cachet can deliver both the foot traffic and the political support that PortMiami needs to bring private development to its island home.

“The port will achieve a greater return sooner because of the higher value of the real estate that remains for development,” said Neisen Kasdin, the former Miami Beach mayor and lawyer leading Beckham’s negotiating team.

EDIT: I'll place this in the compilation thread. I couldn't find a thread for Miami World Center. If you find it Dave8721, let me know, I'll place this update there.

^^^Miami World Center is a completely different development than Miami World Trade Center. It probably has its own thread already and has been in planning for about 10 years now.

Beckham's Miami Stadium: First Renderings Released of Waterfront Park



Quote:
David Beckham's Miami soccer group has already made it clear that the southern tip of PortMiami is their preferred location for a new soccer stadium, and with the release of the first batch of artistic renderings this morning, it's clear why. The stadium, as they envision it at least, would have spectacular views of Miami's skyline through a futuristic roof.
Beckham's group also answered a number of lingering questions about the project in a interview with the Herald published this morning, including announcing plans for a new footbridge so fans could park downtown and confirming that the University of Miami is in talks to play football at the stadium.

mong the biggest questions about Beckham's proposal have been how thousands of fans would get to the park for every game and where they would park. Beckham's group partially answered that question with Arquitectonica's plans for the stadium plaza, which would include a pedestrian bridge along an unused drawbridge already connected to the site.
That would allow fans to park downtown and make a 10 minute walk to the stadium. The planners also claim that since games would be at night, there would be minimal conflict with cruise ship traffic and would allow some parking on the island; they also promised not to schedule games the same nights the Heat are playing.
