After completing its first supertall building, 111 W 57th Street in New York, developer PMG is now preparing for the groundbreaking of the first supertall in Miami: Waldorf Astoria Miami. Recently, several other supertalls have been proposed for the city, such as Major and One Brickell City Centre.

On Biscayne Boulevard, Waldorf Astoria Miami will stand 100 stories and 1,049 feet high, surpassing the supertall minimum of 984 feet (300 meters). The tower’s concept design—which will feature nine spiraling, offset glass cubes—is led by Sieger Suarez Architects, in collaboration with architect Carlos Ott. The developers also partnered with interior design firm BAMO

The property will comprise 360 private residences with a starting list price of $1 million, in addition to guestrooms and suites within the five-star hotel. Residential amenities will include an owners-only lobby and lounge, hospitality suite for chef’s tastings and private gatherings, billiard room, kids’ club, and private pool deck. The residences will offer smart-home technology with custom mobile app access to concierge service. The app will connect to dining reservations, 24/7 room service, spa and fitness treatments, house car reservations, valet service, package delivery service, and dog walking services.

PMG joins development partners Greybrook Realty Partners, Mohari Hospitality, S2 Development, and Hilton to build the first supertall tower in Florida and the tallest residential building south of New York. Waldorf Astoria Hotel & Residences Miami is expected to break ground in summer 2022, with completion slated for 2026.
