When Daniel Kodsi envisioned PARAMOUNT Miami Worldcenter, he set out to create a building of the future. The result is the most amenitized building in the world, providing residents with an impressive array of action-packed first-class sports-related facilities — a vertical country club in paradise.

Imagine a sportsman’s paradise where there’s no monthly membership cost, the extensive and varied facilities are available whenever you like, and there’s no wasted time travelling back and forth between a soccer field, tennis courts, a top-notch gym and so much more. Facilities that you’ll actually use because it’s just too convenient not to, resulting in a healthier and more fulfilling life, all without ever leaving your luxury residential tower. This dream is reality at PARAMOUNT Miami Worldcenter.

The only residential tower currently for sale within the massive 27-acre mixed-use Miami Worldcenter site, PARAMOUNT is making international headlines for its first-of-its-kind Upper Deck — the largest amenity deck in the U.S., spanning a breathtaking 4 acres at 90 feet above Downtown Miami and offering an array of unparalleled sports-related amenities. “We asked ourselves how are people going to want to live and interact,” says Daniel Kodsi, CEO of PARAMOUNT Ventures. “People in Miami and throughout South Florida want to have that indoor/outdoor lifestyle and PARAMOUNT really caters to that.”

The sprawling Upper Deck area will be home to the tower’s chic resort-style pool complete with floating pods and private bungalows, and a premier sports and entertainment complex featuring the country’s first outdoor soccer field — with a pitch built to indoor regulation size — to be featured in a high-rise residential development. There will also be two outdoor hard-court tennis courts, summer kitchens with BBQ, a children’s playground and a jogging path.

“With soccer being the world’s most popular sport, this unique feature has kicked up amenity stakes and has scored a game-winning goal with buyers around the globe,” he says. “We’ve attracted buyers from more than 55 countries and have at least six professional soccer players who have already purchased residences in the tower. The three known soccer pros play for the Turkish, Colombian and Cameroon national teams. With Major League Soccer coming soon to Miami and now in the running to host the games in 2026, the city’s interest in soccer is at an all-time high."

The idea is to create an oasis for those who wish to live in the core of Downtown Miami, but also want plenty of open green space to play. In fact, the 500+ residences will be adorned with an impressive 46 cutting-edge amenities in total, truly something for everyone. While the Upper Deck is getting the most attention, it’s important to note that there are multiple levels of sports and fitness offerings located throughout the building, including an indoor basketball half-court, boxing studio, racquetball court, Tai Chi deck, state-of-the-art fitness center, aerobics area, golf simulator, yoga studio, game room, kids playroom, jam room with recording studio, and multiple swimming pools located throughout the building. “To recover from all the sports activity, we also have a full spa with steam showers, treatment rooms, outdoor lounge with seating, gardens and a relaxation lounge,” he says.

If the name Daniel Kodsi sounds familiar, it should. “Through PARAMOUNT Ventures and as the CEO of Royal Palm Companies, we’ve been at the forefront of shaping South Florida’s skylines for more than 25 years, developing a diversified portfolio of mixed-use, multi-family, condominium and planned single-family developments,” he says.

They have been credited with defining new neighborhoods and changing city landscapes across the tri-county area. From PARAMOUNT Bay in Miami’s Edgewater to Esplanade Grande in West Palm Beach, and most recently PARAMOUNT Fort Lauderdale Beach and PARAMOUNT Miami Worldcenter in Downtown Miami, they have successfully delivered impactful buildings that will continue to enhance and define South Florida. One of Mr. Kodsi’s favorite sports-related moments happened last summer. “In celebration of the World Cup, we hosted a kickoff party with more than 250 brokers at our sales center in support of the Special Olympics,” he says. “As Miami’s only condominium with its own soccer field, it was a natural fit. We hosted a series of watch parties throughout the games in our sales center and dozens of brokers faced off against the pro goalie and players on-hand as they took their shot at kicking a goal into the net. PARAMOUNT Miami Worldcenter offered to make a donation to the Special Olympics for each winning goal.”

The second-largest urban development project in the nation, Miami Worldcenter is located in the heart of Downtown Miami at the crossroads of culture, entertainment, art and fine dining. Residents will enjoy an unparalleled location just an elevator ride away from Miami’s waterfront and most celebrated cultural and entertainment landmarks such as the Adrienne Arsht Center, Pérez Art Museum Miami, Phillip & Patricia Frost Museum of Science, and the American Airlines Arena. Also within Miami Worldcenter is the nearby proposed Marriott Marquis Miami Worldcenter Hotel & Expo and All Aboard Florida’s Miami Grand Central Station, which will allow residents direct service to Orlando in three hours, as well as connectivity to the Metro Mover and nearby Miami International Airport.

Miami has been hailed as “America’s City of the Future,” in no small part due to ultra-luxury towers like PARAMOUNT Miami Worldcenter. Nowhere else in the world will residents have such a concentrated volume of amenities, public transportation options and landmark entertainment venues directly within a few blocks of their doorsteps.

PARAMOUNT Miami Worldcenter is located at 1010 NE 2nd Ave. in Downtown Miami. For more information, call 855.853.3503 or visit PARAMOUNTMiami.com.
