Developer Witkoff Group is planning downtown Miami’s biggest ever residential project by unit count, according to documents filed with planners yesterday.
The project will also include a very large office component, along with retail space.
It will be built on the former Miami Arena site at Miami Worldcenter. Witkoff Group and Monroe Capital acquired the 4.7-acre property for $94 million in July 2021.
The project is proposed to include:
- 2,195 high-rise residential units
- 49,999 square feet of retail space
- 540,000 square feet of office space
A supermarket appears likely to be included – there is a large 40,000 square foot space set up on the ground floor, with a typical grocery market configuration.
A total of 34 elevators appear to be shown on the plans – 12 for office, 18 for residential, and 4 for retail.
The plans also show the towers will be built in two phases.
Two of the towers each have both residential and office lobbies. There also appears to be a third with only a residential lobby.
Worldcenter recently signed a legal agreement with Witkoff to allow for office to be built on the property, which was formerly prohibited.
The Pre-Application was submitted to Miami-Dade planners on January 12 for review, and is marked as being conceptual.
Kobi Karp is the architect.
