Weeks after Miami Worldcenter announced they were slashing the enclosed mall portion of the multi-billion dollar project in favor of high street retail, Miami Worldcenter Associates has released renderings of what that new promenade will look like.
The renderings show the open-air promenade that will be engulfed by residential towers, a hotel, and other dining and entertainment fixtures. They even have a fountain.
"Working with Forbes and Taubman, we've created a 'High Street' retail concept that takes full advantage of downtown Miami's rise as one of the nation's most densely-populated, walkable and well-connected neighborhoods," says Nitin Motwani, Managing Principal for Miami Worldcenter Associates. "By creating a network of open-air promenades and plazas, we'll ensure Miami Worldcenter is seamlessly integrated with surrounding streets while developing a street-level experience that draws visitors from across South Florida and around the world."
While Motwani currently might be overestimating Downtown Miami's walkability from a safety standpoint, here's to his vision of the future.
The formal groundbreaking of Miami Worldcenter's retail component and the adjoining Paramount tower will take place early March.
