Grand Central, the much loved Downtown Miami club, is closing its doors at the end of this month to make way for a (relatively) small part of the gargantuan Miami Worldcenter megaproject, with a final bash on Saturday September 26th. Then, according to The Next Miami, it will be replaced with two giant apartment towers holding over 800 rental units containing about a third each of studios, one bedrooms, and two bedrooms, and a few three bedrooms, on top of a ten story parking garage podium. The east tower is proposed to have 43 stories while the west tower has 40, with an overall height of 478 feet above ground. Known as Block G of Worldcenter, and bordering Worldcenter's 7th Avenue Promenade, the project was designed by Cohen Freedman Encinosa and, TNM says, went in front of Miami's Urban Design Review Board yesterday.
