PRESS RELEASE May 24, 2007 - Miami Today
Planning Panel Endorses Permit For Mixed-Use 'Signature Building'

Every major global city has a site with the potential and location to be that city’s epicenter; where the city’s most identifying landmark building should be found. One Bayfront Plaza is that site and will become Miami’s signature building. This premier location, located at 100 South Biscayne Boulevard, is situated at the south end of the widest section of Miami’s main thoroughfare, Biscayne Boulevard, overlooks both Biscayne Bay and Bayfront Park.

The site, encompasses two full city blocks containing approximately 100,000 square feet of net lot area, is bounded by Biscayne Boulevard, SE 1st and SE 2nd Streets and SE 3rd Avenue. It is directly across from the main Metromover station and is one block from I-95 entrance and exit ramps.
It is the ideal location is for redevelopment of what will become Miami’s largest and most prestigious office tower. The project will rise 70 stories and will reach a height of 1,049 feet to the top of the decorative spire. The views will be unparalleled.
One Bayfront Plaza will comprise more than two million square feet of rentable office space, 112,000 square feet of retail space and a four-star convention hotel with 850 rooms and 120,000 square feet of exhibition and banquet facilities overlooking Biscayne Bay and Bayfront Park. The project will be constructed and operated to LEEDS Green standards to obtain the “Silver” certification.    
The development will serve as a catalyst to attract new investment activity and is the ideal project in size, scope, location and amenities to attract national and international business. The office tower will have large open and flexible floor plates as large as 39,000 square feet each. The floors will have spectacular direct bay views. The project will contain more than 2,500 parking spaces and will include a pedestrian bridge to the Bayfront Park MetroMover station.

The 850 key, world class, full service hotel tower, which itself will reach a height of  824 feet will serve not only the needs of the office and the retail component; it will increase the existing central business district hotel room inventory by more than 20%. This hotel component is obviously needed in the center core of Miami’s business district inasmuch as the last major hotel was developed in 1982. It will be the first new hotel built north the Miami River in 25 years.

The project will also provide two full levels of premium retail mall space in addition to the ground level retail areas, for a total 112,000 square feet of retail space. This is a key element as The Miami Downtown Development Authority projected a need for 400,000 additional square feet of retail space to service only the current downtown office and residential needs and One Bayfront Plaza’s retail component will provide 30% of that need. The project’s retail mall will also create a parallel destination for the 12 million annual visitors to Bayside Marketplace as well as for the more than 4 million annual cruise ship passengers.
