Foundation permits have been filed for Waldorf Astoria Hotel & Residences, the city’s first supertall skyscraper planned to rise nearly 100 stories and approximately 1,049-feet at 300 Biscayne Boulevard in Downtown Miami. The filing lists New York City and Miami-based Property Markets Group as the applicant, who is developing the mixed-use tower with Canada-based Greybrook Realty Partners. The application was submitted on October 27th, indicating there is to be site and soil improvements on several lots totaling 43,791 square feet with Keller North America listed as the contractor at the cost of $5,165,000.
Sieger Suarez Architects is leading the design for the supertall tower in collaboration with Carlos Ott. New renderings from ArX Solutions were recently revealed in the project’s UDRB filing, which received approvals from the city last week. The building will be composed of 9 stacked offset glass cubes arranged in various angles. The top cube will be the most offset, cantilevered towards the southeast corner of the building. The reinforced concrete superstructure will be clad in tinted and clear glass panels in aluminum frames, tinted and clear glass railings, alucobond panels, metal louvers and smooth stucco finishes.
Often referred to as Waldorf Astoria Miami, the tower is planned to yield 1,608,457 square feet across 9 glass offset cubes including 461 residential units, 205 hotel rooms, high-end amenities and 1,321 square feet for commercial uses. The parking garage will be built adjacent to the tower including 431,862 square feet of space for 694 vehicles.
CHM Structural Engineers LLC is listed as the structural engineer, MG Engineering is the MEP Engineer and GRAEF is listed as engineer as well. EGS2 will be the landscape architect. John Moriarty and Associates (JMA) is the general contractor, the manager for several other PMG and Greybrook projects such as Society Biscayne and Society Orlando.
There are no private providers listed on the foundation permit for expedited services as of yet, so approvals will likely take some time. Permits for vertical construction have not been filed yet. Site work is expected to begin later this year, and completion of the project in 2025.
