Ground-breaking is imminent on the site of the 691-foot-tall Legacy Miami Worldcenter, a 50-story luxury mixed-use skyscraper set to rise at 930 Northwest 1st Avenue within the 27-acre Miami Worldcenter mega-development in the Parkwest neighborhood of Downtown Miami. Designed by Miami-based architect Kobi Karp and developed by Royal Palm Companies (RPC), the tower is expected to yield 310 condominium units, 220 hotel rooms and over 100,000 square feet of space dedicated to wellness. Moss & Associates is listed as the general contractor for the project.
In a recent filing to Miami-Dade’s Court of Clerks, a Notice of Commencement was recorded on August 6, 2021 stating the beginning of construction including demolition, earthwork, augercast piles, sheet piling, dewatering, waterprooﬁng and cast-in-place foundations. This document filing was followed by another Notice of Commencement filed on the same day mentioning the beginning of construction on a new 50-story tower soon to be underway. According to The Next Miami, the ground breaking ceremony is scheduled for Thursday August 19, 2021.
A major selling point for the project is the catering to short term rentals, which essentially allows unit owners to rent out their spaces on platforms such as Airbnb and VRBO without aggressive restrictions. Easily, the most stunning and jaw-dropping feature of this skyscraper is the massive atrium that will be perched atop, featuring spectacular views of Downtown Miami and a cantilevered infinity pool accompanied by a lush garden with outdoor and indoor seating as well as a full-service bar. The developer announced that the building’s residential units are already sold out.
Situated 11 feet above sea level, the tower should reach a full height of 691-feet, with construction expected to wrap up some time in 2024.

Drove by yesterday, there were several bulldozers clearing the lot..
Still time to abort this Dubai on the Biscayne….and have a sober, decent building erected….
Totally sold out and leased. Somebody likes it.
Taste is relative and everyone has it….that said, a developer and an architect has the ability to reach for something just a little less crass. People also eat corn syrup laced food, get fat, and get heart disease.
and I wonder how much power is required to air-condition a soaring glass box perched atop a skyscraper in Miami….perhaps more energy than a town of 5,000 requires. (let alone the glare) In this day and age, especially in a city that is close to being submerged, what the value system is that supports this. Perhaps the entire building is clad in energy producing panels that creates a plus condition that generates all the power for the neighborhood? I think not. Boooo
Oh please. We actually need more buildings like this and less “sober” ones.
Marc and bob must be the real estate brokers. Swim to work in the future
I apologise, but it not absolutely that is necessary for me.
