Hospitality giant Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts finally unveiled the $50 million penthouse that will top its highly anticipated Miami residence.
The mixed-use luxury building, which will tentatively open in 2027 and is going up in Downtown Miami, will have a 13,119 square foot penthouse that includes six bedrooms, nine bathrooms, views of the varied city skyline and bay in addition to a list of high-end amenities.
Soon to be located at 300 Biscayne Boulevard, across from downtown’s bustling Bayfront Park, and less than two miles from Miami’s financial district, Brickell, Waldorf Astoria Residences Miami will be a 100-story residence and hotel.

The eventual buyer of the Waldorf Astoria Residences Miami penthouse will get an open-layout home.
It will be equipped with multiple sitting and dining rooms, an integrated smart home system, a private gym, theater, wine room, library, spa and pool.
BAMO, Inc., a San Francisco-based interior design firm that has won over 40 design awards from hospitality groups, is planning to construct an upscale penthouse with enclosed balconies and floor-to-ceiling windows that offer panoramic views of Miami Beach, Downtown Miami and the Biscayne Bay.
Current concept renderings that the design firm has worked on with ArX Creative, a photo-realistic computer-generated illustration company in Coral Gables, Miami, show that the eight-figure penthouse will have a roomy primary suite with premium walk-in-closets, custom Italian vanities with marble finishes in each bathroom and a modern kitchen with bespoke finishes.
Waldorf Astoria is aiming to make its Miami residence the tallest residential building south of New York City with a 1,049-foot construction that would eclipse its competitors.
Those competitors include the Aston Martin Residences in Downtown Miami, which is set to open its 817-foot building at the end of 2023, and the Panorama Tower in Brickell, which opened its 869-foot building in 2017 and is currently the tallest building in South Florida.
PMG Residential, PMG’s in-house brokerage division, holds the exclusive listing for Waldorf Astoria Residences Miami. PMG is one of five partners who are working to bring the luxury building to life.

Of those units, 360 will be private condominium residences from cubes four to nine.
The remaining 205 units will be guestrooms and suites, which will be housed throughout the tower’s first three cubes, along with amenities and Waldorf Astoria signature spaces.
“Miami has rapidly evolved into a world-class city and downtown Miami has become a true driving force behind the city’s cultural evolution,” the hospitality company wrote in its Waldorf Astoria Residences Miami booklet, which was obtained by FOX Business.
