MIAMI, Fla. - A massive real estate development is under construction in downtown Miami and when it’s complete, the Paramount Miami Worldcenter will have the first skyport in the U.S. built for flying cars.
While that may sound like something you’ve seen on the Jetsons, drones capable of transporting people are becoming a reality.
At 27-acres, Miami Worldcenter is one acre smaller than the Hudson Yards complex in New York, but a full five acres larger than Rockefeller Center.
The development will be composed of 11 residential and commercial office buildings, a retail and restaurant promenade, the new Miami Convention Center and several hotels.
When it’s complete, the Marriott Marquis will have 1,600 rooms.
The Miami Worldcenter is going up next door to the new main terminal of Virgin Trains USA.
With the future in transportation in mind, developers are adding a “first” to the Worldcenter’s 60-story tower. The Paramount will have a Sky-Deck shaped like the stern of a yacht. Amenities include a tai-chai deck and a pool.
The Paramount’s skyport would be directly above the deck.
Construction of the Paramount will be completed this Spring.
The entire Miami Worldcenter is slated to open in 2021.
