Thousands of L.E.D. Lights

Paramount: World’s Most Heavily-Amenitized Tower
The just-completed $600-million Paramount is the world’s most heavily-amenitized futuristic luxury residential building, which features the world’s most technologically-advanced LED animation system and America’s first Jetsons-style flying cars SkyPort.
Miami Mayor Francis Suarez illuminated the Paramount Tower with the symbols of both the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers during a giant light switch ceremony, last Wednesday. (Tower Lighting Ceremony B-Roll & Bites: https://vimeo.com/388645328)
Soaring Signature Skyscraper
Paramount is the sixth-tallest building south of New York City and is the soaring signature skyscraper of the 27-acre, $4 billion Miami Worldcenter. It is currently America’s biggest urban construction project, the nation’s second-largest real estate development, and is the city’s new mega retail, residential, hospitality, entertainment and transportation complex.
“This is a magnificent day to demonstrate the beauty of the Paramount Worldcenter project and to kick-off the next phase of this transformational project that has transformed an area that was blighted and is now beautiful,” says Mayor Suarez.
Miami’s 21st Century Beacon
Paramount’s $3 million Color Kinetics Animation Lighting System required three years of planning and design.
“Paramount is the signature tower of Miami Worldcenter; it’s also a beacon for the City of Miami,” says Paramount CEO-Developer Daniel Kodsi (Cod-See). “And, so, no matter how you approach Miami, whether it is by land or by sea or if you are coming from the airport, you will see Paramount and you know you’ve arrived to Miami.”
The 15-Kilowatts of LEDs, which can create a combination of 16.2 million colors, are individually embedded in more than 10,000 panes of high-impact glass. The precision installation process took 12 technicians 10 months to complete.
The lighting system was designed by Gavin Cooper, CEO, LED-Smith, Inc. of Delray Beach, Florida.
Jetsons-Style Flying Car SkyPort
Paramount has been generating global headlines since it unveiled plans for building the world’s first Jetsons-Style Flying Car Skyport. It is located atop the building’s 60th floor SkyDeck. Its rooftop pool has been designed so it can be modified with an hydraulic floor that will rise and transform it into a take-off and landing pad for flying cars.
Ninety percent of the Paramount Miami Worldcenter’s 543 high-rise homes and 26 penthouses have been sold and 10 percent are already occupied. Prices range from $750,000 to $10 million. Paramount Miami Worldcenter broke ground in late 2015.
Miami Worldcenter will be composed of Paramount and 10 other towers, multiple hotels, the new Miami Convention Center, the adjacent Virgin Trains high speed rail terminal and a half-mile long retail and restaurant promenade. Two structures and the railroad terminal are completed. Three other buildings are under construction.
Miami Worldcenter is one-acre smaller than New York’s Hudson Yards at 28-acres and is five-acres larger than Rockefeller Center at 22-acres, which was built in 1932.
Miami Worldcenter is located one block west of the American Airlines Arena. The entire project is expected to be completed in 2023.
