Miami is preparing to house in its sky the tallest tower of the mythical Waldorf Astoria Hotel. The building of 319 meters high and 100 floors will be located at 300 Biscayne Boulevard in this city.
The construction, which will be erected as the tallest building south of Manhattan and the East Coast, is set to become an iconic structure on the city skyline. Not only will it offer spectacular views over the bay, but also a very ad hoc design and over-the-top luxuries to this part of Miami.
So, the Waldorf Astoria Residence will be a tower formed by nine glass cubes stacked unevenly in a spiral that’ll will be recognizable from any direction where the viewer may be located. The work belongs to the famous Uruguayan architect Carlos Ott, who is known for winning -among more than seven hundred participants- the international competition to build the Bastille Opera in Paris.
In the heat of luxury
What is known so far about this 5-star hotel is that the same will have 360 private residences, 205 rooms and suites, and that the Californian company BAMO will be in charge of the interior design. The building will include restaurants, indoor and outdoor spaces for events, meetings, and convention rooms as well as a resort-style pool with private cabanas, spa, and gym.
Additionally, the tower will have state-of-the-art smart technology and even access to a personalized mobile app for restaurant reservations, 24/7 concierge service, fitness and spa treatments, car rental, package delivery and pet walking service. And we can add all of the above to its privileged location: next to the new Miami World Center, residents of the Waldorf Astoria will have almost front row access to cultural attractions, arts, tourism, and fashion.
Obviously, this level of comfort comes at a high price. That’s why PMG Residential, a famous real estate development company that’s in charge of negotiating Waldorf Astoria Residences, has set the sale price of the resort’s simple residences at $1 million.
One for all, all for the Waldorf
The Waldorf Astoria chain has a mythical hotel tradition of undeniable luxury. Now, with this new hotel in the beautiful city of Miami, a new era begins in a location that has come to life and is attracting a new generation of luxury consumers (athletes, entrepreneurs, and artists among others).
To implement this project that resembles more a global city than a residential hotel, PMG has joined forces with the private equity fund Greybrook Realty Partners and the Hilton Hotel Company. This conglomerate of companies has a clear objective that according to Dino Michael, senior vice president and global head of Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, aims not only to transform the city’s skyline, but also to introduce a new level of service in the Miami market, creating unique experiences for every resident and guest of this hotel.
So, we’ll just have to wait until 2024 to see how the Waldorf Astoria will look like in the sky of Miami.
