MIAMI | World Center | MEGA Development - 20 mil square ft| Tower# ? | FT?

I have looked, and the only information for this project is in the compilation thread for Miami. It does not seem to have a dedicated thread for it given the scope of the project. There has been some recent news concerning this massive project too. And the project website is still under construction. The project has been approved. In 2012.

---------------------------------------------------

OVERVIEW: 20 Million Square Feet

Quote:
One of America’s most exciting cities is giving rise to a vibrant new center. At almost 30 acres, Miami Worldcenter achieves the heights of a world-class destination. A dynamic urban core of diversity and excitement, Miami Worldcenter brings a new energy to Miami with a compelling blend of exceptional retail, restaurants, entertainment, hotel, residential and commercial offerings in one unique location.
Miami Worldcenter

The Miami World Center is a nine block mixed-use development immediately north of the Central Business District in downtown Miami. It is defined by NE 2nd Avenue to the east, North Miami Avenue to the west, NE 11th Street to the north, and NE 6th Street to the south. Spanning over twenty five acres, the Miami World Center includes a dynamic mix of retail, residential, office, and institutional uses. It will create a vibrant, walkable pedestrian environment with a unique sense of place: a modern design statement driven by Miami’s unique physical context, culture, and architectural heritage.
These nearly 30 acres in the heart of downtown Miami will be transformed into one of the largest private master-planned urban environments in the world. With up to 20 million square feet of buildable area, this is not a project or a development – it is a city within a city

According to exMiami, the owners of the planned Miami Worldcenter megaproject have picked up two more pieces of land in their quest for world domination. Already having caused a big brouhaha when they snagged Grand Central Park, they are now said to be the purchasers of the recently sold Grand Central Nightclub across the street and the former Camillus House site at 726 NE 1st Avenue. And the Worldcenter real estate shopping spree shows no signs of stopping. We can only speculate at how big this project will eventually be.

Miami Worldcenter – Condos, Residences and Floor Plans

Although is too early to tell how many residential towers this project will feature, but considering the developer is still looking to expand the project. Worldcenter has not released any information but its safe to assume this will be happening soon. Taking advantage of the huge monetary power brought by foreign buyers that still drives in. Read more about “Miami, Dubai and London among the top global cities enjoying double digits price Growth”
We update this website daily, so expect to see more information about the Miami Worldcenter condos, residences and floor plans as soon as released.

Miami Worldcenter – Location

Although still one of the most desolate areas of downtown Miami, the Worldcenter land and its immediate environs have a big, big future, including of course the Worldcenter itself, that new Zaha tower about a block away to the east, and the new All Aboard Florida train station about a block away to the south.

Some news:


Miami Worldcenter to break ground this year

Quote:
The project is scheduled to break ground late this year and is deemed one of the largest urban developments in the country.

If construction goes as planned, the center will open up to the public late 2016.

Besides the retail space, the Miami Worldcenter will also house the new Marriott Marquis World Convention Center Hotel, which will hold about 1,800 rooms and 600,000 square feet of convention space

All Aboard Florida, the private passenger rail that will connect Orlando to Miami, will build a stop across the urban center, which will be located between South Beach and Miami’s Central Business District

Stay tuned for more information.

Quote:
Miami Worldcenter has received approval from the city for its plan to pedestrianize portions of two streets as well as construct a building that spans over a third, with city commissioners enthusiastically endorsing the proposal. Apparently the city doesn't technically own the streets, so they can't really ask for compensation, and as for traffic this might create, that's Worldcenter's problem.

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


Miami Worldcenter Creating Urban Mall With Closed Streets

Quote:
Miami Worldcenter wants to create urban pedestrian promenades with shops and restaurants, à la Lincoln Road, on two of the public streets it's trying to purchase from the city. They plan to construct a building spanning over the third, a block of NE 8th Street, and return it to public use. By sheer square footage, the Worldcenter people say they are giving more area to public use than they are taking away.

Critics have complained that the price the city is being paid by Worldcenter is far too low. Worldcenter's lawyers say the streets, although ceded for public use, aren't technically owned by the city but by adjacent landowners, according to original platting a century ago. Thus the city cannot technically sell them. Worldcenter says closing the streets will weave together the project with the new condo towers to the east. Other critics say the street closures will ensnare traffic, especially during Heat games, where the streets act as dissipators. But at Worldcenter, cars can hit the road, jack.

Found this rendering: Also note the Marriott, which we know about. The rest of the towers or how many is still unknown. Once the development website finishes construction, we will get more information on the precise details of the project.

A side angle rendering:

Video with renderings, and site location of the Marriott: 600 ft too!

Note: The mass models ignore, the video above (VIMEO) gives a good idea of the complex.

It's about time they clean up that area. It used to be super scary there with the crack heads. This project is really going to transform downtown.

The adjacent neighborhood needs some serious help, hopefully this project will be a catalyst. I-95 is very intrusive in this area also.

Seems like Vegas City Center project, v2.

I really have no idea why the Miami Arena is still being depicted in that rendering since it no longer exists!

Probably old renderings. This project is over 10 years old after all.

Yea older renderings. The project is still being developed. With anywhere from 15-20 million square feet or more, things could change. Miami is definitely turning into a mini Manhattan in a way. It is already known as the Manhattan of the South. Although just my opinion,South Florida really isn't the true South. Its more like a hybrid of the Northeast. Now Northern Florida, especially the rural areas, could be considered pretty Southern in a way. But anyways, foreign capital along with a influx of Northerners is helping fuel this great boom. I hope that the intensity only continues!

New Rendering:

This one shows the whole project. Notice the mall, along with the Marriott, and the other skyscrapers that will follow.

Project website finished. Originally it was under construction (See post 1). The main project could now be seen there along with a ton of info and updated renderings.

In the first pic in the post above, the one that shows the whole complex, the Marriott is located at the upper middle portion of the rendering. Its a little hard to see though. You can see it though by looking for the bright sign.
