The Miami skyline will be transformed in a spectacular way.
Renderings have been released of a sensational new tower that will rise 100 stories and 319 feet above the city in Biscayne Bay to become the tallest residential building south of New York City and the most elevated building in Florida, crowning at 868 feet from Miami – (265m) high panorama tower.
The property – Waldorf Astoria Residences Miami – is billed as an ‘architectural wonder’ and will consist of 360 private homes costing $ 1 million (£ 724,575), as well as 205 rooms and suites in a five-star hotel.

The building, which will be located at Biscayne Boulevard 300, will consist of nine spiral offset glass cubes that will “transform the Miami skyline and set the architecture of the property apart from anything on the East Coast.”
It was designed by Sieger Suarez Architects in collaboration with Carlos Ott, with the interiors by California-based interior design firm BAMO.
Mr. Ott said, “The unique nature of this project comes in large part not only from creating an iconic building, but also from a distinguished sculpture that will permanently change the Miami skyline with height and unprecedented design.”
While Charles M. Sieger, of Sieger Suarez Architects, added, “ To fully evoke the sense of transcendence throughout the property, we proportioned the floor plans and offset the cubes to give viewers the illusion that the building is even larger than it is.
“We captured images in Waldorf Astoria Residences Miami that residents and travelers have not yet experienced in this city.”
The hotel, the first Waldorf Astoria to open in Miami, will feature a resort-style pool deck with private cabanas, a spa and fitness center, meetings and boardrooms, indoor and outdoor function rooms, and a specialty restaurant called Peacock Alley.

Meanwhile, all homes will offer ‘the latest smart home technology with custom mobile app access to concierge service’.
The app will include ‘a full menu of available offers, including restaurant reservations, 24/7 room service, spa and fitness treatments, home car reservations, access to valet service, package delivery service, and dog walking service’.
The project is being developed by real estate development firm PMG, Toronto-based private equity firm Greybrook Realty Partners, global investment firm Mohari Hospitality, S2 Development and Hilton – owner of the Waldorf Astoria brand. The timetable for construction will depend on the sale of the homes, but developers are optimistic that they will be groundbreaking in 2022.
Ryan Shear, managing partner of PMG, said: “Miami has become a truly global city, with a high concentration of international buyers and travelers, as well as those mainly from the Northeast, Midwest and California.
