Miami World Tower phase one is proposed to rise 52 stories at Worldcenter’s Block E.
Tower one will include 560 residential units and 3,136 square feet of commercial space, along with 401 parking spaces.
New York’s Lalezarian Properties is the developer. The company purchased the site last year from Miami Worldcenter, and submitted the plans this month.
NBWW is the architect.
Here’s how an attorney for the developer describes the architecture in a letter to city planners:
Miami World Tower aims to break away from the rigid and orthogonal language typical of many residential towers. In plan, the building is a simple and efficient rectangle that maximizes daylight into, and views out of, each unit. On the east and west elevations, however, a contrast between shifting balcony profiles and areas of clean, uninterrupted glass results in the expression of fluid, sensuous curves. On the south side, balconies extend beyond the edge of the building, swaying in and out again as they move upward, resembling wave crests approaching the shore. The overall effect is that of a building in motion, where portions appear to be carved out or eroded, revealing a new layer underneath.
A proposed 13-story mixed-use development on a triangular parcel at the intersection of Indian Creek Drive and 71st Street was approved by the Miami Beach Design Review Board after design refinements suggested by the Board at two previous meetings.Read more
