A joint venture between South Florida-based developers Merrimac Ventures and Aria Development Group is preparing to break ground on 600 Miami Worldcenter, a 32-story condominium tower set within Downtown Miami’s Miami Worldcenter 27-acre mixed-use development, which will deliver 606 fully furnished units with no restrictions on short-term rentals. The upcoming groundbreaking will be made possible with a $95 million construction loan from Banco Inbursa to fund the sold-out tower’s development at 600 Northeast 1st Avenue. Construction is expected to be completed in 2026.
Buyers are responding to 600 Miami Worldcenter’s short-term “turn-key” rental model, with all of the development’s units already pre-sold to residents hailing mostly from the U.S., Colombia, Turkey, and Argentina. Residences will range from 407-square-foot studios to 830-square-foot two-bedroom units, with prices starting in the $400,000s.
OneWorld Properties, led by CEO Peggy Olin, manages sales and marketing for 600 Miami Worldcenter. Newmark’s Jordan Roeschlaub, Dustin Stolly, Nick Scribani, Daniel Matz, and Holden Witkoff, along with the law firm of Bilzin Sumberg LLP’s Joseph Hernandez, Salomé Bascuñan, and Anthony De Yurre, represented the developers in the transaction.
“600 Miami Worldcenter has been one of our most anticipated and fastest-selling developments, which was appealing for our lenders at Banco Inbursa,” said Nitin Motwani, Managing Partner of Merrimac Ventures. “Heightened demand for the project’s ideal location and fully furnished turn-key residences are just some components that will make it a standout addition to our city-within-a-city at Miami Worldcenter.”
“600 Miami Worldcenter blends best practices from our most successful luxury residential developments with the excitement of Downtown Miami. We look forward to growing our relationship with Banco Inbursa through the construction of this beautiful project in our vibrant submarket,” said David Arditi, Managing Partner of Aria Development Group.
600 Miami Worldcenter is the latest residential offering within Miami Worldcenter, the $6 billion mixed-use development transforming the heart of Downtown Miami. As the second largest urban development in the U.S. after Hudson Yards, the ‘city within a city’ features a diverse mix of residential, commercial, and hospitality uses complemented by approximately 300,000 square feet of retail, restaurant, and entertainment space.
Merrimac Ventures’ presence in Downtown Miami also includes the development of Miami Worldcenter, which is being developed by master developers Miami Worldcenter Associates, led by Managing Partners Nitin Motwani and Art Falcone, in partnership with CIM Group.
In addition to 600 Miami Worldcenter, Merrimac Ventures is also developing two more residential towers within Miami Worldcenter: The Crosby, a sold-out 450-unit condominium with no rental restrictions in partnership with Related Group, and the second phase of Caoba, a 40-story tower with 420 apartments.
Aria Development Group’s Downtown Miami portfolio includes the nearby YOTEL Miami, a 31-story condominium and hotel, and 501 First, a 476-unit condominium in partnership with AQARAT – both of which have no rental restrictions and are completely sold out.
Residences at 600 Miami Worldcenter will be curated by the award-winning design company, The Design Agency, and are equipped with floor-to-ceiling glass windows with custom window treatments, expansive balconies, flooring, and furnishings on all residential interiors. Kitchens and bathrooms will include custom Italian cabinetry and countertops, top-of-the-line appliances with speed ovens, integrated paneled refrigerators/freezers, dishwashers, in-unit washers and dryers, and fully built-out spacious closets.
Designed by Revuelta Architecture, 600 Miami Worldcenter will boast luxury amenities including a summer kitchen, rooftop swimming pool with resort seating, a state-of-the-art fitness center with an outdoor private training area by Homage Fitness. 600 Miami Worldcenter will also feature a covered porte-cochère, 24-hour attended lobby, dedicated co-working space, resident lounge and entertaining space, air-conditioned resident storage, and bike storage.
Miami Worldcenter occupies 10 city blocks within walking distance of Museum Park, home to Pérez Art Museum Miami and the Frost Museum of Science; the Kaseya Center, the home of the Miami Heat; the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts; and Miami Dade College’s Wolfson Campus. It is also adjacent to Brightline’s MiamiCentral station, which offers direct train service from Downtown Miami to Aventura, Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton, West Palm Beach, and Orlando, together with access to Tri-Rail, the Metromover and the Metrorail – making Miami Worldcenter the largest and most connected transit-oriented development in Florida.
