MIAMI, FL - ZOM Living and The Moinian Group are preparing to break ground on Luma at Miami Worldcenter, a 43-story apartment tower in the heart of Downtown Miami. Luma will be a focal point of Miami Worldcenter, the 27-acre, $4 billion mixed-use development now under construction and delivering in phases. Upon completion, Miami Worldcenter will stand as one of South Florida’s most desirable residential communities and a world-class destination for shopping and dining, culture and entertainment, and international business.
Luma will consist of 434 luxury rental units with a variety of floor plans ranging from 566 to 1,808 square feet. The residential floors have a maximum of 12 units per floor, allowing an intimate feeling in a tall slender tower that maximizes views of Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. Located only one block from Biscayne Boulevard, the project is adjacent to the Freedom Tower Metromover stop and two blocks east of Brightline/Virgin Train’s Downtown Miami station, providing residents convenient access to MetroRail, TriRail and Brightline Florida.
Luma’s amenities will consist of over 45,000 square feet of space providing an unparalleled level of luxury in the market including a membership-grade wellness center with treatment rooms and sauna, sundry shop, speak easy, dog salon, fitness club with classroom, resort-style pool and comfortable ride share lobby. These common areas will provide a 5-star hotel-caliber experience that fosters interaction among residents and provides an urban oasis without having to leave the community. Construction will begin in April.
“Today’s urban renter demands a luxurious building with market-leading amenities and high pedestrian value, and Luma will provide all that and more,” said Greg West, Chief Executive Officer of ZOM Living. “Luma’s close proximity to parks, cultural venues, transportation and retail are unmatched in the market, and our setting within Miami Worldcenter will offer residents next-level convenience and connectivity.”
“After successfully developing the country’s largest single tower residential development Sky, which includes over 70,000 square feet of cutting-edge amenities, we are excited to expand our presence in such a cosmopolitan city like Miami, and more specifically Miami Worldcenter,” said Joseph Moinian, Founder and CEO of The Moinian Group.
Miami Worldcenter occupies 10 city blocks surrounded by some of the most exciting demand drivers in Miami, including Museum Park, home to Perez Art Museum Miami and the new Frost Museum of Science; Port Miami; American Airlines Arena; the Adrienne Arsht Performing Arts Center; Brightline/Virgin Trains’ Miami Central station; and Miami-Dade College’s Downtown campus. The development will feature 300,000 square feet of high street retail, destination dining and entertainment, more than 2,000 hotel rooms, and up to 500,000 square feet of Class A office space.
“The success of Miami Worldcenter has always been grounded in collaboration with best-in-class partners, such as ZOM Living and Moinian,” said Miami Worldcenter Managing Partner, Nitin Motwani. “Luma will kick-off the next phase of development for our city-within-a-city, delivering premium apartments that meet growing demand for urban living in Downtown Miami.”
