Marriott At Miami Worldcenter Gets Big Design Update



Quote:
Along with a submittal to enlarge the Miami Worldcenter special zoning 'atlas' (by which we assume they mean 'area') to include the Marriott At Miami Worldcenter megahotel and convention center on the former Grand Central Park site, developer MDM Group included plans for the new hotel, according to exMiami. And here they are. The form of the structure has been changed from rectangular with tentacle-like things swooping out to semi-circular with a hole in the middle, and is 'subject to change' again, since they aren't actually seeking approval for the building's design yet, just for zoning to allow the building, or something.

Miami Worldcenter Officially Submits Plans To City For Review



Quote:
The reps for Miami Worldcenter, the megaproject soon to fill the barren moonscape between the Metromover Omni Loop and the Metrorail with skyscrapers, sent over some renderings with an announcement that plans for the development's first phase have officially been submitted to the city for review. Now the design, by Elkus-Manfredi Architects has to go up for design review and then to the Planning Zoning & Appeals Board, with any required revisions being sent back to Worldcenter.

Both Marriott Worldcenter and Worldcenter Itself To Break ground By Year's End

Despite a Planning Board delay last week, MDM Development is still planning to break ground on the 1,800 room Marriott Marquis Miami World Center, along with 600,000 square feet of convention space, ‘towards the end of 2014.’ The 765,000 square foot Mall at Miami Worldcenter, which is being built separately by The Forbes Company and Taubman Centers, is scheduled to break ground in the fourth quarter of 2014 with a planned opening in late 2016..

Worldcenter Adds Missing Piece Of Land, Begins Soil Testing

Quote:
Soil testing is underway at The Mall At Miami Worldcenter site, a precursor to construction. Mall developer The Forbes Company recently recently inked a deal to buy a 5,000 square foot lot at 717 NE 1 Ave from C&H Land Corp that had been missing from the assemblage. Plans for the mall already included the lot.

Miami Worldcenter Signature Tower To Rise 749 Feet



Quote:
Miami Worldcenter Associates submitted plans to the FAA last week for a residential tower called Worldcenter Signature Tower.

If approved, it would rise 749 feet above sea level (738 feet above ground level) – the maximum permitted in the area.

It will be located at 129 NE 8th St, across from the NAP of the Americas and above The Mall At Miami Worldcenter.

I doubt if the FAA will let us have that height in that Location, but let's see what we get.

Holy stalking horse Batman!

Worldcenter’s Motwani Admits: We Won’t Be Building The Project

Quote:
The current owners of Miami Worldcenter don’t intend to actually build the project.

Instead, they have been moving through the approval process and gaining valuable entitlements for the property, with the apparent goal of flipping the land to other developers at a profit.


The revelation was made in a deposition of Worldcenter managing principal Nitin Motwani last month that was obtained by exMiami. In the deposition, Motwani admitted that the purpose of Worldcenter was ‘to sell land’ and that the owners don’t plan on actually developing any part of the project. The deposition was related to a lawsuit by Edie Laquer, who is suing over a stake in the project.

The project is still likely to begin construction within a matter of months, but it will be led by other developers. Motwani and his partners have contracts to sell two key pieces to developers who plan on doing the building. MDM Development is buying the former Miami Arena site with plans to build an 1,800-room Marriott convention hotel, while mall operators Taubman Centers and The Forbes Company are buying land to build a 765,000 square-foot shopping center anchored by Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s.

[...]
The renders had a tentative quality which had me for one, wondering whether it would be built as depicted. Answer: kind of.

Could Related be getting in on this WorldCenter action? Stay tuned...

1,800-Room Marriott At Worldcenter Still On Track To Break Ground By Year End

Quote:
A representative for MDM Development said yesterday that they still plan to break ground on the 1,800 room Marriott Marquis at Miami Worldcenter by the end of the year.

Miami’s Planning Board approved zoning modifications needed for the project at a meeting yesterday. It now goes to the full commission for approval next week.

Worldcenter megaproject set to start



Quote:
Faded concrete lots in Miami’s Park West have taken on a new look as a billion-dollar mega project prepares to start construction with the dawn of the new year.

Miami Worldcenter, a multi-use development promising to turn 27 mostly barren acres into 10 blocks of condos, stores, entertainment venues and more, is at the starting gate.

Developers have announced a start within the first quarter of 2015 and plan to begin vertical construction midyear. In recent days, they’ve installed site wraps and signage bearing Worldcenter’s new branding and graphic design.

A key component is a towering 1,800-room Marriott hotel tied to a multi-storied convention center at the site of the former Miami Arena.

Billed as downtown Miami’s largest private development ever, Worldcenter is ultimately destined to bring $2 billion in investment to the urban core, the developers say.

Harvey Hernandez’s Newgard Plans Office Tower, Hotel At Worldcenter

Quote:
Harvey Hernandez is planning a 250,000-square foot office tower at Miami Worldcenter, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal: http://www.wsj.com/articles/miami-co...ers-1418765925

Hernandez’s Newgard Development is also set to announce the brand name of a hotel that he plans to build at Worldcenter. The announcement will come early next year.

The paper also detailed how Paramount at Miami Worldcenter is targeting Chinese buyers.
At 250k the office tower won't be very tall but the hotel could be a nice highrise.

Plans Call For Brickell Flatiron To Rise 731-Feet; Marriott World Expo Center Goes For 640-Feet


Quote:
Developers have submitted plans to the FAA for two towers in the downtown area.

Brickell Flatiron is proposed to rise to a height of 731-feet above ground level, or 737-feet above sea level. Only two towers in Florida currently exceed that height – the 789-foot Four Seasons in Brickell, and the 764-foot Southeast Financial Center in downtown Miami.

Construction on Brickell Flatiron is proposed to begin on February 15, although that could change.

MDM Development’s 1,800 room Marriott World Expo Center is proposed to rise to a height of 640-feet above ground (or 653-feet above sea level). Construction is expected imminently .
