MIAMI – August 6, 2020 – In the midst of the coronavirus crisis, PARAMOUNT Miami Worldcenter, the world’s most-futuristic luxury tower, will be America’s first residential skyscraper to deploy the only-one-of-its-kind, COVID-Killing Xenex LightStrike UV Ray Robot.
The 700-foot, 60-story, $600-million PARAMOUNT is the soaring signature superstructure of the $4-billion, 27-acre Miami Worldcenter. It is America’s largest urban-core construction project and the nation’s second-largest urban development located near the epicenter of one of the most coronavirus impacted areas in the U.S.
At the news conference, LightStrike executives and technicians will provide a robot demonstration.
Also, PARAMOUNT Miami Worldcenter’s CEO-Developer, Daniel Kodsi (Cod-See) and OneWorld Properties CEO, Peggy Olin, will unveil plans to build the World’s First COVID-Conscious hotel, residential and medical center skyscraper. The Legacy at Miami Worldcenter is being designed to treat and protect people during future health emergencies and will feature a fleet of UV Robots.
LightStrike is the world’s first and only ultraviolet room disinfection technology proven to destroy SARS-Co-V-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, according to the Texas Biomedical Research Institute. The Institute is one of the world’s leading independent research facilities working exclusively on infectious diseases. It is also one of only 10 Bio Safety Level 4 Labs in North America. Scientists there have concluded that LightStrike achieved a 99.99% level of disinfection during a two-minute treatment.
LightStrike’s intense, pulsating bursts of xenon ultraviolet light are not only proven to destroy the virus that causes COVID-19; but its robotic disinfecting system also eradicates E. Coli, Ebola, MRSA, SARS and other viruses and pathogens, according to any array of reports published by major universities and hospitals. They include the Mayo Clinic, the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and several U.S. Veterans Affairs hospitals.
And, now, the LightStrike robot is, for the first time, being used in a residential setting, at the ultra-modern PARAMOUNT Miami Worldcenter.
PARAMOUNT Miami Worldcenter LightStrike Test Site
Phase One of the PARAMOUNT Miami Worldcenter LightStrike robot evaluation will focus on the building’s public areas and a select number of its 549 luxury high-rise homes, according to Kodsi.
He explains, “The primary public areas include PARAMOUNT’s 2,800 SQF Conservatory-Atrium, its 5,700 SQF Spa & Fitness Center, plus elevators and restrooms.
Phase Two disinfection will include additional high-rise homes, as requested by PARAMOUNT residents.
More About Xenex LightStrike
The Made-in-the-USA LightStrike robot sells for $125,000, which equates to a cost of approximately $100 per day over a 37-month period.
Hospitals report disinfecting as many as 60-rooms per day with a single robot, which equates to a cost of about $3 per room.
The LightStrike robot emits bursts of brilliant, broad spectrum UV light to quickly destroy microscopic viruses and bacteria that can remain in a room, even after it has been cleaned.
Different pathogens are susceptible to UV light at different wavelengths. With broad spectrum UV light, LightStrike robots quickly deactivate viruses and bacteria by destroying their molecular structure.
The average-sized bedroom requires two, two-minute disinfection cycles (one on each side of the bed) with an additional two-minute treatment in the bathroom.
LightStrike’s rays destroy micro-organisms on all surfaces.
LightStrike robots do not cause damage to equipment, surface materials, furniture, clothing and other items.
It has been safely operated for more than 23 million cycles.
There are no chemical residues or toxic fumes.
LightStrike is currently in-use at more than 650 healthcare facilities, food processing plants, and government buildings and now at PARAMOUNT Worldcenter and the soon-to-be-constructed Legacy Hotel, Residences and Medical Center in downtown Miami.
World’s First COVID-Conscious Skyscraper
The 55-story, $500-million Legacy Hotel & Residences at Miami Worldcenter will feature hotel rooms, MicroLuxe residential units and a state-of-the-art $60-million, 100,000 square foot medical center.
“Legacy, which will be built across the street from PARAMOUNT, will be a full-service facility for guests and residents to shelter-in-place,” says Kodsi (Cod-See).“The entire tower will be built with touchless technologies, antimicrobial materials, hospital-grade air purification and filtration systems throughout all areas, and, Legacy will be equipped with a fleet of LightStrike UV robots.”
“The COVID-19 pandemic has created demand for a new disease-conscious lifestyle, which PARAMOUNT Mimai Worldcenter and Legacy Hotel & Residences are addressing with first-of-its-kind designs and technologically-advanced innovations,” says CEO-Developer Daniel Kodsi (Cod-See).
“High-tech medical and sanitary amenities and services are part of what is quickly-evolving into the new-norm,” he says. “These are now essential features that buyers and guests are searching for in the 2020 real estate market.”
“In regards to Legacy, what we are building will allow the hotel and residences to remain fully operational in the event of a future pandemic,” explains Kodsi. “We designed Legacy so residents and guests will have direct access to a team of physicians and healthcare professionals, an imaging center, diagnostic lab, pharmacy, food services, and more.”
He explains, “At Legacy, in the event of illness, medical help is an elevator ride away. People can be conveniently treated and quarantined, if necessary. Most importantly, they can be close to family and loved ones staying in the building.”
