20 New Miami Towers That Will Be Rising Vertically In 2020

Next year is likely to be good for construction in Miami with a new flock of construction cranes now arriving to build the city’s next generation of skyscrapers.

Vertical construction has commenced, and the project is already several stories up with two tower cranes installed.

Aside from NYC, is there any other city in the U.S. building like this? Pretty amazing even if you don’t like the designs or developers.

The closet is L.A and Ft lauderdale

Also, except it is outside the USA, is Toronto.

Seattle is building fast.

The architecture design here is much nicer than Seattle. Miami is for me in the same category as Singapore and some cities in China

Was just in Toronto in October, I can confirm this. They have probably completed 10+ buildings over 600 feet in the last 3-4 years with another 10 or so to be completed within next 3 years. Including a super tall 1000’+!!! Toronto is an amazing city.

Anonymous

That’s because the politicians in Toronto don’t get in the way of developers like they do in Miami because of a couple of home owners whining about a planned building near the little dinky neighborhood they live in that’s over two stories tall.

Just got back to beautiful sunny Florida weather from Toronto. Agree – Toronto amazing and world class. Food is outstanding compared to down here. Rush hour traffic on 401 is bad, and winters are too long, but the City is amazing.

Seattle, WA has a lot of skyscrapers going up. Apartments and a decent amount of new office space all together.

Have any of you been to Atlanta or even Austin Tx?? Lol

Some really nice projects are rising… keep them coming … but… for gods sake I don’t understand why our”leaders” can’t provide transportation alternatives….they act like they personally fund these much needed alternatives … it’s time to either get it done or get voted out

Anonymous

SPEAKKKK!!! We need new transportation YESTERDAY!! Government is so slow and there is so much need/demand that private companies like Virgin (Brightline) are going to add different modes and make it a mess, like monorail with a potentially different fare system and inconsistent connections.

It will be interesting to revisit this list at mid-year.

Wondering how come the planned supertall hotel at Biscayne and 3rd St. is not listed. Maybe they are wisely redesigning the haphazard “box on top of a box” rendering.

All look beautiful and exciting, except for Smart Brickell (last photo) which is very ugly.

I disagree. Downtown 5th stands out like the sore thumb of ugliness.

Actually make that TWIN sore thumbs since it’s two towers or twice as ugly.

I actually like Smart Brickell.

The worse part of it is that it’s gonna neighbor Okan tower

I am not happy to see One River Point going up in 2020 or Skyrise. From the ones going up, my favorite towers are Okan and Legacy

Not going up, sorry

I know, just like Aston Martin’s not going up.

It’s just the sales center they are building now..

… and don’t forget the chickens these third world country bumpkins are bringing to the city that these law and code enforcers are turning a blind to and letting roam around.

Careful.. you’re probably talking to people who were born and have lived in Miami and fought in the United States Military decades before you were born and came here.

Unfortunate but true…I myself witnessed an older woman take a handful of garbage and just literally throw it into the street across from square station … all the while talking to another woman in Spanish very loudly

Anonymous

Saw the same thing while walking down 34th street and 12th ave one day. Middle age man walking and drinking something out of a large cup container, and when he finished, he just casually tossed the container over his shoulder onto the ground and then stopped to talk to two of his buddies in Spanish without giving what he had just done a thought.

English or Spanish speaking a pig is a pig.

We should honestly form an enclave (like Little Havana) for Latin Americans and probably push them up towards Ft. Lauderdale. Then tourists would tour south Florida way for longer durations, meaning more $$$.

Also in the enclave it should be clean, no street garbage as you mentioned. I agree, it is messing up the aesthetic of the city. When you’re in the Miami downtown, it looks brilliant, but as you get further inward the feeling goes away due to the garbage. All cities do have those issues, but Miami should not let that happen.

Downtown 5th is already almost going skyward… Ya’ll might want to update that lol

Yeah Melo doesn’t play lol I hope they buy some more lots for I could see more buildings going up.

Yes.. Miami and the county have a lot of areas that are just boring, lackluster, and are very much in need of transformation.

Miami Dade which is Miami has 3 million people and add Broward county and Palm Beach county you have 6.7 million people. So we’re do you get 100,000.

Yea, even tho the Downtown and coastal areas are absolutely beautiful, a lot of the suburbs really need some work, good transportation would really solve a lot and help jumpstart that though

yeah… it’s kinda insane progress Melo is making on downtown 5th.

20 for 20 the cycle never ends in Miami!

Wau, Miami is a big city more in USA.

I’m only against how Downtown 5th is going to neighbor Okan tower. I thought it should be farther away, I just don’t think it matches.

Oh Melo. Always the weed in a field of roses.

Una Residences is super sexy.

If this list was a party, Downtown 5th is the person who throws up.

I’ll take the design of Downtown 5th over Natiivo any day.

Perplexed

I’d just like to know why someone pays $3 million for a 2,000 sqft condo on the third floor with a view of the building next door. A really nice home or older condo with a view can be had for less ? I’m sure that there is a reason, but i can not figure it ?

Anonymous

The persuasiveness of slick marketing to naive yet moneyed foreigners is the reason. How else can you sell a $3 million drywall box next door to the county jail.

Brokers, be sure to down vote this.

My most favorite ones are Legacy Miami, Okan Tower, Block 45, Luma Apartments, Nativo, 830 Brickell, Downtown Fifth, Aston Martin, and the AC Hotel Marriott & Westin Hotel project, and Yotelpad.

Shawn Kouri

Oh and 2000 Biscayne, Modera, Missoni Bala and Virgin Hotel.

Look Miami has a lot more getto areas than nice areas and Miami has 3 million people in the county 80 percent of the county speaks only Spanish so building Miami up will bring true American English speaking people which is what Miami needs.

I hope more world center projects start like Legacy Miami Worldcenter. But just like midtown wasn’t built within five years I know this wouldn’t area wouldn’t be completed within five years.

Well not if the Planning, Zoning and Appeals Board has anything to say about it, bullshit in my opinion, some of the best, most interesting, and area enhancing projects come from this

Only a stupid optimist would think Miami’s skyline would look better with less highrises in it.

Optimist

Good architecture and street-level urbanism attract more good architecture and urbanism. Careless and uninviting architecture can drive future development away. Miami has lots of good examples, including many on this list. Push for better, not just more.

Like the old saying goes, “beauty is in the eye of the beholder.”

Besides, anyone of those planned towers are still better to look at than another empty, vacant, weed covered lot.

I agree, empty lots aren’t good.

I still can’t believe the AM Residences project and how close it it to the water with the very real threat of sea level rise. No one is building sea walls high enough to protect from a storm surge of 6+ feet. I agree It would be an eyesore, but a needed reality for all of the investment into that plot of land. The Other problem is you are only as protected as the weakest link around you.

You could have a 10 foot sea wall but if the plot next door only has a 3 foot sea wall it doesn’t matter.

Anonymous

Gosh nervous Nelly, China is ramping up for WWIII with the USA and you’re worried about the sea levels being a few inches higher a hundred years from now when we’re all dead anyhow. Do research on China’s military motives if you want something to really ulcerate over.

The Metromover cars have air conditioning and are free to jump on. Only a fool would complain about that.

Some of you Morons really think all of this overdevelopment is cool. SMH. Not even realizing Miami doesn’t have the infrastructure to support this growth.

Only a problem if you don’t live, work, and play downtown/wynwood/brickell since most these places can be accessed without a car. But I do agree, Miami needs much better transportation infrastructure

Only an unrealistic minded farm hick Moron would thinks he’s looking at something that’s overdeveloped (whatever the hell that means).
