While sales are already underway for a condo tower at Miami Worldcenter, a second residential tower is being planned as a rental tower.
Plans for the 47-story ‘Tower 1′ at Miami Worldcenter show that the high-rise would include 429 apartments. Units would be relatively small, ranging in size from a 743-square-foot studio to a 1,188-square foot 2-bedroom apartment.
Tower 1 will be built across from the 600 Biscayne parcel, which includes the Freedom Tower. FEC’s rail spur to the port runs behind the property.
Parking would be provided on the lower levels, but the small footprint of the tower means that just 130 parking spaces will be built within the structure (thousands of spaces are being built for the Mall at Miami Worldcenter, which will be connected.) Residents will likely make heavy use of the nearby metromover station, which will have it’s canopy modified by Worldcenter (subject to Dade Transit approval.)
A leasing office, bar, lounge and fitness center are planned on the fifth level. An outdoor pool and other amenities are planned on the same level, atop a parking podium.
ADD Inc. is the architect of the rental tower, while Elkus Manfedi is designing the rest of Worldcenter’s first phase.
