New Renderings And Phased Plans Unveiled For Trio Of Towers At ‘Miami Riverbridge’, Including 87-Story Supertall, In Downtown Miami

Posted on 2 March 2024 by Florida Yimby

Updated renderings and phased plans have been unveiled for Miami Riverbridge, a three-tower mixed-use development designed by Arquitectonica and developed by Hyatt Hotels Corporation and Miami’s Gencom set to redefine the 4-acre site at 400 Southeast 2nd Avenue along the Miami River. With a review by the Miami River Commission scheduled for March 4, this visionary project has captured the city’s imagination, signaling a major transformation for downtown Miami. Following a resounding endorsement from city voters in November 2022 for a lease amendment and development agreement for the property, the developers aim to breathe new life into the site, replacing the existing 615-room Hyatt Regency Miami hotel and the 4,500-seat James L. Knight Center dating back to 1982.

The project’s detailed plans, recently submitted to the Miami River Commission, spotlight an ambitious near 3.8 million square foot development. Among its highlights is an 87-story tower that will not only enter the ‘Supertall’ category but is also poised to impact the Miami skyline significantly. Reaching 1,044 feet, this tower will introduce a new level of architectural distinction to the city, connected by a sky bridge on the 61st floor to another tower, showcasing the project’s forward-thinking design ethos.
