Board Finally Approves Worldcenter Zoning Changes



Quote:
Zoning changes needed for the Miami Worldcenter project were unanimously approved by Miami’s Planning, Zoning and Appeals Board today.

Property owners and members of the public who attended the meeting spoke in favor of Worldcenter by a 10-1 margin.

The board had deferred a vote in June after hearing from a lobbyist Paul Savage, who represented the operators of Grand Central Park and Grand Central Lounge. Savage is also representing his clients in court contesting street closures for Worldcenter, which had been previously approved. That appeal has yet to be resolved.

The city of Miami commission will vote on the zoning changes along with a new Worldcenter development agreement next week.

Miami Worldcenter Plans a Nightlife Mecca, Streetcar Screw

Quote:
OMG Zaha will just die when she finds out about this. One Thousand Museum, her architectural pantheon of a condo tower, will have a panoramic view of Miami Worldcenter, which according to Al Crespo is likely to be a real party city. Not exactly a rarified flower of luxury real estate, Miami Worldcenter is sounding like a bona-fide urban entertainment district in the heart of Downtown Miami. Crespo, must less impressed however, compares it to clubland just to the north. He points out that that Nitin Motwani, the general partner Worldcenter, is trying to get 25 liquor licenses from the City of Miami for the project, not including the many liquor licenses that will also go to restaurants, and that these 25 will have very little governmental insight.

In A Unanimous Vote, Commissioners Say Yes To Miami Worldcenter

Quote:
Miami commissioners voted tonight to approve zoning modifications and a development agreement that will allow the Miami Worldcenter project to move forward.

Commissioners spent hours listening to public comment and debating the changes, which revised approvals granted to the developers project in 2008. The yes vote came only after last minute changes to language setting out hiring local requirements, along with clarifications to air rights and billboards within the Worldcenter area.

Several speakers at the meeting, including activist Brad Knoefler, mentioned exMiami’s report that the owners of Worldcenter intended to flip the land after gaining approval. Worldcenter managing director Nitin Motwani indirectly addressed the issue, saying that he was proud to be bringing in MDM Development, Taubman Centers and The Forbes Company to develop the project.

Individual pieces of the project, including MDM’s planned 1,800-room Marriott, will still need to gain separate approvals.

I know its upside down but its from the PDF. Simply save the image and rotate it if interested. Also, zoom feature helps to see the details.

Miami commission approves downtown expo center, hotel



Quote:
The Miami City Commission unanimously approved plans for a downtown convention center and 1,800-room hotel Thursday on the site of the old Miami Arena.

The commission’s approval of MDM Development’s $600 million Marriott Marquis Miami World Center clears an important hurdle for the developer, which can now pursue permits and tax rebates, and push to break ground before the end of the year. The privately financed project has been long-desired by downtown business boosters, who say a convention center will help flush businesses, restaurants and hotels with customers.

“This is symbolic of how we will now compete against the convention centers all over the nation,” said Commissioner Keon Hardemon.

Smaller convention centers, that is.

While the project, designed by Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe & Associates, includes 350,000 square feet of meeting space, larger gathering areas are limited to a 100,000-square-foot exhibit hall, a 60,000-square-foot ballroom, and a 40,000-square-foot junior ballroom, which are stacked in three tiers. That’s part of the reason Miami Beach officials, who are redeveloping their larger facility in South Beach, are welcoming the new convention space into downtown as complementary rather than competitive.

“It pales in comparison to the size of the Miami Beach Convention Center exhibit space, but for us it’s very large,” said architect Bruce Brosch.

MDM needed the commission’s approval for the project Thursday because the design violated certain aspects of Miami’s zoning code. Commissioners granted exemptions that allow the developer to build out the expo center over most of the 4.7-acre site, and allow the 54-story hotel to be built as designed atop the pedestal.

The developer now will look to negotiate with the Southeast Overtown/Park West Community Redevelopment Agency for rebates from the property taxes it generates to help finance the convention center operations. Attorney Tony Recio said the rebates are “very important” for MDM.

Miami Worldcenter Teases Its Signature Tower, Paramount



Quote:
Miami Worldcenter is thisclose to launching sales of its signature residential tower, Paramount, pulling a flashy teaser ad in Ocean Drive Magazine, as well as launching the building's website. Oh, and of course, exMiami says they are. Unfortunately, a scant few renderings have been made public (which really makes you wish city building department records would finally be digitized and put online so we could just look this shit up because technically it is public record over there) but they're about to pull the lid off the big reveal and show everyone what they've got.
