A land use board in the city of Miami gave developer Art Falcone the green light to build a 53-story mixed-use tower in Miami Worldcenter. The Urban Development Review Board approved Coral Gables-based Nichols Architects’ plans for Miami Worldcenter Block C on March 20.

The board’s approval means that Boca Raton-based Falcone Group can move forward with its 726,408-square-foot project at 155 N.E. 10th St., said Thais Rupeika, brand specialist for Nichols Architects. It will include 280 hotel rooms, 351 luxury condos, 3,500 square feet of retail, 8,000 square feet of restaurant space, and 331 parking spaces.

“The only comment [the board gave] was to provide some type of mural treatment on the south podium,” Rupeika said. “They didn’t want to leave a blank wall,” she added.

The mural’s design will be coordinated with city staff “following the guidelines of the Miami Worldcenter arts program,” Rupeika said.

The Falcone Group intends to file for permits later this year and break ground in early 2025, said Alfonso Costa Jr., COO of the Falcone Group.

“We will be announcing our brand in the near future,” he added.
