Construction crews are now drilling 400, 150-foot-deep steel structural support piles into the ground in Miami for the start of the Miami Worldcenter — the biggest construction project in the city’s history and America’s second largest mixed-use urban development.
Phase one construction focuses on Paramount Miami Worldcenter. It is the project’s 700-foot, 60-story, $500 million signature residential skyscraper. Paramount is considered amongst America’s tallest and most heavily amenitized high rises.
It will feature the world’s largest private urban amenities deck that includes resort style pools, bungalows, walking paths, gardens, tennis courts and even a regulation soccer field.
“You are literally going to see six blocks being developed all at the same time," said Daniel Kodsi, Paramount Miami Worldcenter CEO and Master Developer. "This is basically step one, of multiple steps in which you are going to see six buildings going vertical.”
Kodsi says, Miami Worldcenter will intertwine Paramount with six other residential and office buildings, an 1,800-room Marriott Marquis and convention center; the intermodal hub for the downtown MetroMover and Metrorail elevated transit systems; the adjacent main terminal for the under construction All Aboard Florida high-speed railroad and the Miami Worldcenter retail and restaurant promenade. It will feature an unprecedented collection of retail stores and a fusion of restaurants.
The 27-acre Miami Worldcenter will be second-in-size only to New York’s Hudson Yards development at 28-acres. In comparison, New York’s Rockefeller Center is 22-acres. A formal groundbreaking ceremony was set for Wednesday morning.
