Miami, the booming, global city known for its beautiful beaches, exciting entertainment and rich culture, has been making waves in the real estate world. Now more than ever, all eyes are on the city as a major player attracting both individuals and corporations in the pursuit of opportunity and sunnier weather. As a city consistently pushing boundaries and challenging the norm, Miami will soon become the city of supertalls.
Defined as a building at least 984 feet tall, supertalls are a new era of architecture exceeding limits and recreating skylines as we know it. The first ever supertall slated for Miami, Waldorf Astoria Miami, has plans to break ground this summer, making the striking tower the only residential supertall on the East Coast aside from New York City.
Located at 300 Biscayne Boulevard, the architecturally awe-inspiring Waldorf Astoria Miami will feature nine spiraling, offset glass cubes designed to be evenly stacked and wrapped in what can be referred to as a “glass skin,” distinguishing the property’s architecture from anything else on the East Coast. The tower’s concept design is led by Sieger Suarez Architects, in collaboration with renowned architect Carlos Ott, who worked in tandem to create an iconic structure in Downtown Miami offering 360-degree views of Downtown Miami, Miami Beach and the Atlantic Ocean. The developers also partnered with award-winning interior design firm BAMO, which prides itself on creating captivating environments that flow, function and make people feel welcome, at ease and inspired to live and dream more fully.
The property will consist of 360 private residences, in addition to guestrooms and suites within the five-star hotel. Within the tower is a special Sky Collection, a collection of premiere residences located in the clouds within the 8th cube of the 1,049 foot property. The residences are adorned with the most pristine, modern and luxurious touches synonymous with Waldorf Astoria’s legacy, reimagined for a home that exceeds even the highest of expectations. Located within the eighth cube of Miami’s most iconic building, the Sky Collection residences feature epic scenic views from larger-than-life ceiling floor-to-ceiling windows, french balconies and expansive terraces with summer kitchens.
Signature spaces within Waldorf Astoria Miami will include Peacock Alley; a specialty restaurant; indoor/outdoor pre-function and function spaces; meetings and boardrooms; a resort-style pool deck with private cabanas; and a spa and fitness center. Residential amenities will include owners-only lobby and lounge; hospitality suite for chef’s tastings and private soirees; billiard room; kid’s club; and private pool deck. The residences will offer the latest smart-home technology with custom mobile app access to concierge service. The app will feature a full menu of available offerings, including dining reservations, 24/7 room service, spa and fitness treatments, house car reservations, access to valet service, package delivery service and dog walking services.
Developer PMG, along with partners Greybrook Realty Partners, Mohari Hospitality, S2 Development and global hospitality company Hilton, have set out to create a landmark beacon for the city of Miami, marking Waldorf Astoria’s first entry into the Miami market. The vision is to bring an architecturally stunning structure to Miami’s iconic Biscayne Boulevard with meticulously designed residences and unparalleled services for residents and future guests of the hotel to enjoy.
Residences start at $1 million, with sales and marketing being led in-house by PMG Residential, including Aura Aragon, Alejandra Castillo, Karine Carvalho, Daiana Quiceno and Christian Tupper, in collaboration with Fredrik Eklund, Julia Spillman and John Gomes of Douglas Elliman’s Eklund | Gomes Team. Waldorf Astoria Hotel & Residences Miami will be managed by Hilton Management Services, offering residents and guests alike a truly refined haven through the brand’s relentless commitment to personalized service and best-in-class experiences.
