Designed by Elkus Manfredi Architects, Paramount Miami Worldcenter will add a dynamic new landmark to the city’s flourishing hub

Elkus Manfredi Architects have applied the design imperatives of New Urbanism to Paramount Miami Worldcenter, a mixed-use development that will be one of the biggest the city has seen in its history. Cultivating a pedestrian friendly urban environment, it will be the first and only residential tower currently for sale within the 30-acre Miami Worldcenter site. Recently, the city of Miami has seen a sort of ‘renaissance of cool’ with international fairs such as Art Basel and Maison&Objet being held in the region.

Representing a modern design statement driven by Miami's distinctive physical context, culture and architectural heritage, Paramount Miami Worldcenter will offer a unique pedestrian destination that will serve as a catalyst for future downtown development. Residents will enjoy an unparalleled location just an elevator ride away from the exciting array of retail, restaurants, office space, lush parks, galleries and nightlife planned for the cosmopolitan development.

Scheduled to break ground in the third quarter of 2015, the development will comprise of over 500 city and bay-view residences, ranging in size from 1,180 to 2,300 square feet. “"The development of these 30 acres brings everything together in one place truly creating a city within a city. It's an architect's dream," noted Howard Elkus FAIA, Co-Founder and Principal of Elkus Manfredi Architects.
