Miami Worldcenter Block G, Caoba Tower

  • LOCATION Miami, Florida
  • CLIENT Coastal Tishman

Miami Worldcenter is a ten-block, mixed-use development under construction in the Park West neighborhood, just north of downtown Miami. The plan includes commercial, retail, hotel and residential properties as well as a 500,000 square foot convention center. When complete it will be one of the largest private master-planned projects in the United States.

Caoba Tower is a 43-story apartment building with over 20,000 square feet of ground level shops and restaurants. Caoba and its attached parking deck are the first part of Miami Worldcenter to be completed. Phase two will be a second residential tower which is now under construction on the opposite side of the garage.

Coastal Tishman brought us in to handle the decorative panel façade and zigzagging “wave” trim that screen the parking deck. Most of these Kynar finished panels are five feet square, with some narrower panels around the perimeter of the façade. Solid panels predominate, but we installed perforated panels in front of the ventilation fans to ensure plenty of fresh air. These panels cover an area roughly 240’ wide and four stories tall and create a beautiful architectural accent, while the staggered mounting depth still allows some light into the deck.
