Miami Worldcenter Construction
Miami Worldcenter is aiming for full completion by 2021, but the project is being delivered in phases, some of which have already opened for business, and others that will be ready by the end of 2019.
Construction is now underway on a portion of the retail promenade, along with one of two parking garages that will serve the facility. Meanwhile, the first 50,000 square feet of retail and commercial spaces are nearing completion.

Spearheading the Miami Worldcenter project is Nitin Motwani, developer of Miami Worldcenter Associates, who confirmed, “We have almost 200,000 square feet of world-class retail space now under construction across the site, which reflects the strong feedback we’ve received from brands from around the world and across South Florida. Traditional retailers, food and beverage, and entertainment concepts see value in having a presence in a well located, well-connected site combining residential, hotel, convention, office and retail uses within a single master-planned development.”

Caoba, the first of the project’s residential apartment towers has already launched and is happily inhabited by residents. With 444 apartments that range in size from 500 to 1,300 square feet, Caoba defines a new style of urban living that focuses on walkability, access to the arts, community, and convenience. Most units at Caoba are studios and one-bedrooms, and rents run from $1,775 to $4,275.

Also nearing completion is Luma, a 43-story luxury apartment tower being developed by ZOM and consisting of 434 rental units with floor plans ranging in size from 566 to 1,808 square feet. With no more than 12 units per floor, Luma provides privacy and emphasizes views of Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.
A 348-room hotel tower called CitizenM will offer the utmost luxury hotel experience at affordable rates for visitors to the area. This project will be breaking ground later this year.
