A groundbreaking ceremony tower was held this morning for the Legacy tower at Miami Worldcenter.
Work has actually been underway at the site since last week.
The developers of the tower announced that they have have signed one of the largest commercial leases in Downtown Miami’s history, spanning 10 floors and 120,000 square feet.
California-based Adventist Health agreed to lease the 10-story medical center in the tower, making Miami home to the world’s first Blue Zones wellness center.
The term Blue Zones, first coined in a 2005 National Geographic Magazine cover story, refers to areas of the world where people live longer lives – sometimes beyond age 90 – as a result of lifestyle, diet and exercise.
The center will offer teams of physicians and practitioners, an onsite lab, pharmacy, full AI-powered diagnostic center and rooms outfitted with medical gas and ventilator capabilities, allowing the hotel planned in the complex to remain operational during future pandemics.
The wider Miami community will also benefit from planned Blue Zones programming which will include an onsite farmers market, a curated voluntourism program, movement activation in downtown Miami’s planned 80-acre park system as well as the creation of the Blue Zones interactive Exploratorium.
