Yup, and many more towers to be revealed in the coming yearly quarters. This project is 20 million square feet; one of the largest outside of Hudson Yards. City Centre being another large one.

The emphasis has been on Paramount for now, but expect the future news to shift to other components. This mall in the complex will also be very large. Florida is actually getting some massive mall upgrades/expansions/projects. Aventura, than theres another one in Ft.Lauderdale along with this. Tampa may also see some expansion going along with their downtown plan (retail, commercial, residential and so on).

Miami should be getting much more of the spotlight, as it is booming with projects that make most outside of NYC seem tiny. Theres even a large scale development compromising of 20+ residential towers on the outskirts of Miami that is comparable to two times the units of NYC's Astoria Cove, only more spread out. Again, no one knows about it most likely.

Yea from what I've gathered its Biscayne Landing. Thing is, they are kinda stingy on the details. Like, I understand its a 10-20 year project, but they have the worst public press on the project. But in terms of towers, its numerous and its actually a very large project. One of the largest in Florida in terms of raw units of residential spread over towers that are 10-20 floors. You kinda have to go digging for the info on that project as its not as obvious as lets say city centre or world center.

In front of the Arena the Mall at World Center will go. It will be separated from the AA Arena by a block or so, but its the closest part of the complex to it. To the North of the Arena, there will be a park by the name of Museum Park and to the South Bayfront Park. The mall being directly to the West of AA arena.

In terms of the tracks, parking will be next to it, but part of the ABF track is elevated, with retail being concentrated on the bottom of the platform.

TIME TO DIG: After years of planning, what is billed by the developers as the largest construction project in Miami’s history is set to begin in four to five weeks. City commissioners last week gave final approval to an expansive development agreement for Miami Worldcenter that covers everything from local hiring requirements to landscaping and liquor licenses. Bounded by Northeast Sixth and 11th streets and by North Miami Avenue and Northeast Second Avenue, Worldcenter plans to turn more than 24 acres of mostly vacant lots into a prominent destination with residential, office, hotel, retail, restaurant and entertainment uses. Ryan Bailine, an attorney representing the developers, said the approval would mean the start of construction in four to five weeks.

Largest in the nation essentially next to Hudson Yards. Checking the twitter for the project, the optimism is monumental, much like the scope of this project and everything else that is going on in Miami-Dade.

Some not so good news:

================

Without A Subsidy, 1,800 Room Marriott Marquis World Convention Center Could Be Chopped In Half



Quote:
MDM Development Group’s plan to build a Marriott convention hotel on the former Miami Arena property could be cut in half without tax subsidies, the Herald reported.

The developer says that they need $115 million in tax rebates through 2042, or an inflation-adjusted equivalent of $60 million upfront. Without public money, MDM might build 1,000 hotel rooms and 200,000 square feet of meeting space, down from the 1,800 rooms and a 400,000 square foot convention center that was approved last year.

The rebate would be in addition to and separate from an $88 million subsidy that was recently approved for Miami Worldcenter. MDM is buying the Arena site from the developer of Worldcenter to build the Marriott Marquis World Convention Center.

If the Overtown CRA agrees, the agency could provide part of the tax rebates through 2030, when the CRA expires. The city of Miami would need to approve a higher tax payment and rebate to the CRA until 2030, and also guarantee a subsidy between 2030 and 2042.

Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado said that he would veto any city assistance to the developer.

In July and again in October of last year, MDM representatives had said that they planned to break ground on the project by the end of 2014.

Court Could Clear The Way For Worldcenter To Move Forward Next Week




Quote:
One of the last remaining obstacles to Miami Worldcenter could be resolved as soon as next week.

On Tuesday, a hearing has been scheduled in a lawsuit filed by Grand Central Lounge. The court could decide to throw out the case, which challenges Worldcenter’s development agreement with the city.

Paul Savage, an attorney representing Grand Central, filed the suit in December, which alleges that the public didn’t have enough time to review the agreement before it was approved in September.

After the lawsuit was filed, commissioners voted to approve the agreement for a second time in February, making certain that the public had time to review it. The city will now ask the court to throw out the suit, based on the new vote.

Savage received bad news a few weeks ago when another lawsuit that sought to impede Worldcenter was denied by an appellate court. In that suit, Brad Knoefler’s Omni Parkwest Redevelopment Association challenged street closures that the city had approved for Worldcenter.

Some observers have said that the lawsuits, which have been filed by entities controlled by Knoefler, Aramis Lorie and Mark Lesniak, are simply an attempt to gain a payout from Worldcenter’s developers.

If your refering to the rendering, the large one, its on World Center main site and its updated for March. Every month they update the main page, and the design changes slightly as it's going through the design process.

Mostly whats new are some plaza changes, some slight alterations to the window frames, facade, and corners. If you compare the two, you'll see the differences. If you want to get a good comparison, download both photos, using Windows 7 or 8, slide the photo viewer so it attached to the left side, the other photo to the right, and compare away.

On a side note, this goes to what I was saying about Nordstrom and how developers once they have a design in mind, and stick to it, often the change slight things with the tower or tower(s) but nothing to change its identity to the point of not recognizing it. Same thing applies here.

The metro station will be on the side. Not built directly to the base.
