Top 10 buildings range from 859 feet to more than 1,100 feet tall
More than 20 years ago, residential skyscrapers started sprouting up in Brickell and downtown Miami, slowly replacing low-rising condo and apartment buildings, older hotels and retail buildings.
Today, Miami boasts the third tallest skyline in the U.S., trailing only New York City and Chicago with over 300 high-rises.
Fueled by demand from wealthy South American buyers and the city’s emergence as a financial hub for Latin America, Miami has become the city for developers and architects to show off their latest designs and mega-projects.
At least 10 more projects have plans to be built in Miami over 800 feet, according to data from the Skyscraper Center. Here’s a look at the tallest towers proposed for the Magic City’s skyline.
“18” by Karam Group – 960 feet
The Karam Group has proposed redeveloping a property at 10 Southwest Eighth Street in Brickell into a 78-story, 392-unit mixed-use tower.
As planned, the site could have 392 condos, 66,618 square feet of retail space on four floors, 464 parking spaces and bicycle parking. The building was designed by Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe & Associates (NBWW), and secured FAA approval for 960 feet of height.
The property is currently home to a Burger King-anchored shopping strip near Brickell City Centre.
2nd & 2nd Tower – 898 feet
AVR Realty is planning a 1.5-million-square-foot residential and hotel high-rise at 200 Southeast Second Avenue in downtown Miami. The development would include 637 residential units, 266 hotel rooms, about 9,200 square feet of retail space, 553 parking spaces, and 8,600 square feet of green space.
Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe & Associates (NBWW) is designing the 898-foot tall building.
The tower would replace a downtown Miami Courtyard Marriott.
