The futuristic Jetsons family who drove around in flying cars may not have been too far off. In fact, developer of PARAMOUNT Miami Worldcenter, Dan Kodsi, is willing to bank on it. Complete with a Skyport designed for flying cars, the PARAMOUNT Worldcenter in Miami, Florida is set to open this Spring and is already more than 75 percent sold. The luxury condominium high-rise is comprised of 500 units ranging from 1,180 to 2,350 square feet, each with city and bay views. The residences start at $750,000 and the skyscraper has already done $400 million in sales.
Among ‘the most amenities in the world’ is the Worldcenter’s Skyport, set on the Skydeck level. At the very top of the structure will be an infinity-edge pool that converts into a 5,000-square-foot landing pad to support vertical takeoff and landing aviation. In the midst of urban congestion, residents could be picked up and dropped off on-demand in flying cars, also known as passenger drones, from the 60th story of this luxury high-rise.
“The future of transportation is here within the next 10 to 15 years and urban aviation is closer to reality than you might expect. The flying vehicles will use airspace to alleviate transportation congestion and traffic on the ground for quicker daily commutes and cleaner air around the world. These vehicles are more like a helicopter, but much quieter, run electronically and are environmentally friendly,” says Kodsi.
The PARAMOUNT Miami Worldcenter is proud to be at the forefront of urban aviation and high-tech features, according to Kodsi, and will offer an array of amenities that the country has never before seen. The Skydeck will not only encompass the Skyport, but will also host guests in the lounge area, a sunrise pool as well as the transforming infinity-edge pool, the sundeck, observatory and Tai Chi deck.
Gaining international attention is the Worldcenter’s Upper Deck, which will feature the first outdoor soccer field in a residential high-rise that the U.S. has ever seen. Additionally, the Upper Deck design includes tennis courts, a dog park, playground, resort-style pool with a plethora of seating and bungalows, a summer kitchen and a jogging path. Not to mention, all of this will span 90 feet over downtown Miami.
Guests will never be at a loss for entertainment or opportunities to luxuriate in the 7th-floor salon and spa with outdoor bath gardens and steam showers, the entertainment center with game room and recording studio, the indoor sports center with boxing and aerobics amenities, or the food market and business center. And if none of that suits your fancy, the lower level also has a yoga studio, basketball and racquetball courts.
Construction of the tower has reached the top floor and is nearly fully-occupied by real estate investors from more than 50 countries. The entire Worldcenter will span a total of 27 acres, with the tower extending 60 stories up. The PARAMOUNT Miami Worldcenter is located in the heart of downtown Miami and will bring new, high-end entertainment, dining and condo living to the area.
