Witkoff Group’s Three-Tower Mixed-use Project – Downtown Miami

Witkoff Group’s Three-Tower Mixed-use Project – Downtown Miami

After securing a FAA approval this March, developer Witkoff Group signed a utilities deal for its 3-tower mixed-use project this May, paving the way for development. Rising up to 685 feet above ground next to the Brightline passenger rail station at 700 N. Miami Avenue, at the former Miami Arena site in Downtown, this multi-tower new construction will make a vibrant addition to Miami’s urban core. Site work is expected to begin later this year or early next year.

Developed in partnership with Chicago-based Monroe Capital, the 3.38 million-square-foot mixed-use will be seated within the Miami Worldcenter mega-complex. Designed by the award-winning Kobi Karp, the three-tower new construction will feature a U-shaped orientation and vertical greenery veiling its podium.

The mixed-use project will carry a total of 2,360 residential units, about 540,000 square feet of office space, 28,000 square feet of a full service restaurant, 12,500 square feet of retail, 2,457 parking spaces, and a lush park buffering it from the railroad. While all 3 towers will house residential units, only two will feature office space. All three towers will come connected by an 8-floor podium/amenity deck.

— May 2023 – Miami Condo Pre-Construction Market – Watchlist

New York Developer Harry Macklowe’s Waterfront Assemblage – North Bay Village

Looking to assemble a prominent waterfront parcel to build “hundreds of condos,” New York-based developer Harry Macklowe is likely to shell out $47.7 million to acquire the Biscayne Sea Club co-op at 8000, 8010 and 8020 East Drive. With the Sea Club scheduled to close on June 1st, it is still unclear if Macklowe will stop at this 3-acre parcel or continue adding to his assemblage, since the Majestic Isle condo building nearby was also deemed unsafe by the city.

Former INS Building Sold – Upper East Side

Sold for a combined $23 million, the former Immigration and Naturalization Service building plus a waterfront lot next to 79th Street are now under the ownership of Miami-based B Group Capital Management. The site holds the potential to be built with residential, retail, office, and hospitality components.
