With Museum Park rising on the east of downtown Miami, and All Aboard Florida’s high speed rail terminal laying tracks in the west, there was something missing in the center of downtown’s redevelopment. Now, Miami Worldcenter is set to be the final piece of the puzzle bringing in the new downtown Miami.
Miami’s urban core is quickly coming alive as one of the world’s most exciting business, travel and lifestyle destinations (have we mentioned that? Once or twice?), and the arrival of this new project will bring a whole new set of amenities to the flourishing neighborhood.
The first phase will create 750,000 square feet of shopping, dining, and entertainment, as well as include 1000 residential units and 1,800 hotel rooms – that’s a whole lot more people in the neighborhood. Moreover, it will link the All Aboard rail project to the existing Metromover and Metrorail, creating greater mobility and linking the city’s business district to the arts district.
As with any change on the horizon, there are bound to be questions and concerns from neighbors and locals. Miami Worldcenter is holding open meetings to address these, and to keep the public informed regarding upcoming plans.
The new project’s design team and representatives from the City of Miami Planning and Zoning Department will be fielding questions on two separate occasions. We encourage our avid Soundbytes readers to come and learn more about the new project, and let us know what you think. The first meeting will be held August 6th at 6pm at the Lyric Theater (819 NW 2nd Ave), and the second on August 13th at 6pm (1010 Northeast Second Avenue).
