South Florida’s largest construction site is running on all cylinders –with two residential towers rising fast, over 140,000 square feet of retail space now under construction, and more than 800 workers active on the job site each day. Miami Worldcenter, the mixed-use development reshaping the center of Downtown Miami, is the second-largest urban development underway in the U.S.
Looking for a timeline? You’ve come to the right place.
Miami Worldcenter’s first tower to open, CAOBA apartments, will welcome renters seeking Downtown Miami living beginning this fall.
Second up will be PARAMOUNT Miami Worldcenter, the project’s signature luxury condominium. Paramount has reached the 48th floor of construction on its way to a total of 60 stories. It’s scheduled to open in Q1 of 2019.
Next will be the open-air retail, dining and entertainment pedestrian-only promenade now under construction. That portion of the development will open in late 2019.
Still to come will be MDM Group’s 1,700 room Marriott Marquis, complete with meeting, exposition and event space; LUMA, a luxury apartment tower developed by Zom; and finally, a new Class AA office-led tower by Hines which will open in 2021.
Building a project of this scale is no small feat. Nearly 4,000 construction workers have been hired to date, with more than 800 people working on the site each day – with more on the way.
Construction of Miami Worldcenter coincides with the launch of Brightline’s rail service into Downtown Miami, which is bringing passenger trains to the city’s urban core for the first time in more than a half-century. Miami Worldcenter’s adjacency to Brightline’s Miami station makes the project the largest and most-connected transit-oriented development in South Florida.
Miami Worldcenter occupies ten city blocks surrounded by some of the most exciting demand drivers in the City, including Museum Park, home to Perez Art Museum Miami and the new Frost Museum of Science; AmericanAirlines Arena; the Adrienne Arsht Performing Arts Center; Brightline’s Miami Central station; and Miami-Dade College’s Downtown Miami campus.
With all of this in store and so much more, this ‘city within a city’ will definitely be one for the books!
