Gotcha, looks as if it might be the tallest building in the development.

Might be. I'm looking forward to the official height figures. IDK, from the rendering it looks like maybe its the 3rd or 4th tallest but maybe its just perspective. Although in terms of height, this won't eclipse the other mega project, City Centre, which will also boast a supertall in phase 2.

An alternate viewpoint of the site that it will compromise. Also a nice view of the current skyline. You can also see the boatslip in which the soccer stadium will go (Middle-left), near the current stadium.

It's going to secure Miami's place as the 3rd largest skyline in the US.

Wow! would love to own an investment condo here.

The residential tower architecture looks to be high-quality but not groundbreaking (in fact it's very similar to the so-called "glass boxes" going up in Toronto)

I think the podium scale, mixed use layout, subtle art deco accents on the podium landscaping, indoor/outdoor integration and water features are what truly make this world class! Toronto has a lot to learn from Miami.

Wish this development had some sort of a signature supertall that would represent it in the skyline. Regardless, this and the All Aboard Florida station are going to really bring developers to the north part of the core.

Marriott At Miami Worldcenter Gets Big Design Update





Quote:
Along with a submittal to enlarge the Miami Worldcenter special zoning 'atlas' (by which we assume they mean 'area') to include the Marriott At Miami Worldcenter megahotel and convention center on the former Grand Central Park site, developer MDM Group included plans for the new hotel, according to exMiami. And here they are. The form of the structure has been changed from rectangular with tentacle-like things swooping out to semi-circular with a hole in the middle, and is 'subject to change' again, since they aren't actually seeking approval for the building's design yet, just for zoning to allow the building, or something.

The current design kind of looks like a samurai sliced up a giant glassy version of the Fontainebleau. It has a large Atlantis-esque hole in the middle, and three levels of convention space below the hotel, containing exhibition areas, a ballroom, and a junior ballroom, all of which can be subdivided every which way. Oh, and there's a lecture hall. Then the hotel begins, with lobby and large outdoor pool deck areas, and 2000 rooms above.

This building is huge and it's only a piece of the project. I can't wait till this dumpy area is transformed.

Miami Worldcenter Officially Submits Plans To City For Review

Quote:
The reps for Miami Worldcenter, the megaproject soon to fill the barren moonscape between the Metromover Omni Loop and the Metrorail with skyscrapers, sent over some renderings with an announcement that plans for the development's first phase have officially been submitted to the city for review. Now the design, by Elkus-Manfredi Architects has to go up for design review and then to the Planning Zoning & Appeals Board, with any required revisions being sent back to Worldcenter. Slowly, steadily, this behemoth of a project lurches forward.

^ Well this mega project has been 8 years in planning & acquiring the various individual properties to make this 27 acre project finally into reality. The retail portion is being developed by The Forbes Company and Taubman so obviously they feel comfortable enough to proceed despite whatever future market conditions are.

From the Miami Herald :

The plan maps the first 10-acre phase of what would eventually be a 27-acre mixed-use urban redevelopment project, one of the largest in the country, in the long-forlorn Park West district just north of the downtown core. The project is valued at around $1.5 billion.

Highlights include the first publicly available details on three mostly residential towers that will crown the retail center and share a nine-acre amenity deck 13 stories up. The towers, at 56 stories, 47 stories and 34 stories, will have 1,200 units “in a range of sizes and prices,’’


Read more here: http://www.miamiherald.com/2014/06/3...#storylink=cpy

Looks like Miami is going to get a couple more 500+ footers with this project. This is going to radically transform downtown.

Worldcenter Adds Missing Piece Of Land, Begins Soil Testing

Quote:
Soil testing is underway at The Mall At Miami Worldcenter site, a precursor to construction.

Mall developer The Forbes Company recently recently inked a deal to buy a 5,000 square foot lot at 717 NE 1 Ave from C&H Land Corp that had been missing from the assemblage. Plans for the mall already included the lot.

Developers have said that they intend to break ground by the end of the year

Miami World Center Signature Tower To Rise 749 Feet | 228 m | 56 stories

Miami World Center Signature Tower To Rise 749 Feet
By exMiami Staff on August 6, 2014

Miami World Center Associates submitted plans to the FAA last week for a residential tower called World Center Signature Tower.

If approved, it would rise 749 feet above sea level (738 feet above ground level) – the maximum permitted in the area.

It will be located at 129 NE 8th St, across from the NAP Center of the Americas and above The Mall At Miami Worldcenter.

Boston’s Elkus Manfredi is designing the tower, which will include 466 residential units.

I guess this will be the tallest of the first 3 residential towers at 56 stories.

Address: 129 NE 8th Street , Miami, FL. 33132
Height: 749 ft. | 228 meters

Very nice. Will make quite an impact on the skyline given its height.

City may build Miami Worldcenter parking


Quote:
Ongoing talks could lead to a significant public-private partnership between the developers of Miami Worldcenter and the Miami Parking Authority.

If successful, it could mean thousands of new public parking spaces downtown.


Miami Worldcenter would replace more than 10 blocks of mostly vacant urban land with a mixed-use quilt of hotels, restaurants, stores, entertainment venues and more.

Until recently the developers had been dealing solely with officials from the city and Miami-Dade County on a multitude of issues, including zoning and land use.

When talk turned to parking needs, though, the parking authority was brought to the table.

The possibility of an agreement with the authority was mentioned Aug. 6 by its CEO Art Noriega, who told the Off-Street Parking Board he had “exciting news.”

Mr. Noriega said he’s been meeting with Nitin Motwani of Worldcenter, county finance officials including Deputy Mayor Edward Marquez, Miami Deputy City Manager Alice Bravo and others, and discussing what role the parking authority might play in the development.

Mr. Marquez, who also serves as county finance director, confirmed the talks but stressed they are in the early stages, and said he could not discuss any possible funding scenarios.

“We’re talking, yes,” said Mr. Marquez. “Worldcenter asked for participation from the city, county and the [Community Redevelopment Agency]…. Numbers were presented to us and we’re taking a look.… As to what the government participation could be and should be, it’s very preliminary.”

[...]

“We’re talking about 3,000 public spaces to the project, for the surrounding public and for visitors to the mall,” Mr. Schwartz told Miami Today.

I love the height, but the design looks like it came straight out of the Jetsons.
