A Dozen Supertall Towers Are Now Planned In Miami

A Dozen Supertall Towers Are Now Planned In Miami

Developers are racing to build the first supertall tower in Miami, after the Federal Aviation Administration increased height limits for the area.

Here’s a look at all of the recent proposals:

 

One Brickell City Centre (1,049 feet) was the first to break the FAA’s height barrier and gain approval at 1,049 feet last year. It is proposed to become the second phase of Swire Properties’ massive Brickell City Centre project at 700 Brickell Avenue (most of the first phase is opening this week). The Arquitectonica-designed tower is expected to include a mix of office, hotel, residential and retail space, with groundbreaking in late 2017

 

The Towers by Foster + Partners (twin 1,049-foot towers) was just announced this week by a partnership of three developers (Tibor Hollo, Frank McCourt and Corigin) at 1201 Brickell Bay Drive. It is to include 660 condo units, with ground floor retail and public space. The height has already been approved by the FAA.

300 Biscayne has been approved at a height of 1,049 feet. The project is to include 500 luxury condo units, and is being designed by a world-renowned architect. Developer PMG is keeping details of the project under tight wraps, but is building a sales center that will open in the first quarter of 2017.

 

 

One MiamiCentral was approved in early 2016 for a height of of 991 feet above ground, or 1,000 feet above sea level. The project is expected to include office, hotel and residential space. Construction on the retail-heavy first phase is already underway.

 

Capital at Brickell is in the planning stages by China City Construction (one of China’s largest developers) at 1420 S. Miami Ave. The project will include 3.2 million square feet of space, with completion in six years. The developers have said that they hope to build up to 1,069 feet, but the FAA has never approved a height above 1,049 feet in Miami.

 

One Bayfront Plaza is now proposed to be built at a height of 1,049 feet, according to an August filing by developer Tibor Hollo. The project was previously approved at a height of 1,009 feet, and is expected to include office, hotel and retail space. It will replace Hollo’s existing One Bayfront Plaza at 100 S. Biscayne Blvd.

 

World Trade Center of the Americas is proposed at 988 feet. The 77-story project is proposed to include office, hotel, retail and residential at 340 Biscayne Boulevard, with work estimated to begin in late 2018.

 

Skyrise is approved for a height of 1,049 feet above sea level, and will include an entertainment complex. Developer Jeff Berkowitz recently brought on Legends, owned by the New York Yankees and Dallas Cowboys, as a development partner.

Sky Plaza at 251 E. Flagler Street recieved FAA Approval earlier this year for heights of 837-feet and 1,001-feet, but the owners have been marketing the property for sale.

One Fifth – a concept project proposed for the The Central Baptist Church at 500 Northeast 1st Avenue. Renderings showed an 1,100-foot tower.

With the way they have been working, my money is on Swire’s supertall to be the first.

300 Biscayne will be made of light

Miami will be the Hong Kong of the Caribbean, with prices just as crazy.

Florida isn’t part of the Caribbean, genius. It’s part of the mainland United States. Although it’s better to be Hong Kong than Dubai, as people have said.

You clearly don’t understand economic catchment areas, genius.

Also, I didn’t realize the Caribbean had any supertall, let alone much skyscraper development, so your analogy is invalid.

Latin America is an economic catchment area. The Caribbean are all Third World banana republics which we have to compete with for tourism.

One Bayfront Plaza is by far the nicest design, but the beam of light is awesome too!

I wake up everyday hoping that some kind soul out there (that has the skills to do so) creates a composite rendering of the Miami Skyline with all of these towers and the many other tall proposals in it, so we can at least get a glimpse of what it would look like, that would be glorious. One can dream…..

I am hoping that Capital (China City) gets build. Right now it is just a huge hole in the heart of Brickell where the only residents are a couple of stray cats.

When they first bought this, I thought it was going to happen right away based on what they were saying, but now it is looking like the Chinese are just banking their money in American land for awhile before there will be any movement on this.

We have known of all this for quite some time now. We know the plans, proposals and etc. etc. We want construction commencement already and a completion date from all of these.

Is probably safe to say that at least 6 of these supertall towers will eventually get built.

Miami is my hometown and I wish all of Miami’s Developers would just team up and challenge the FAA’s Height restrictions on Skyscrapers or at least help establish a no fly zone in certain areas.

Places like Auckland, New Zealand and even Los Angeles have Buildings that surpass the 1,049 FT height restriction that is imposed here.

We cant forget that we can no longer afford to keep building in the west everglades so the only way to go is up as far as land is concerned.

“Vying” implies a commitment, and One Fifth is merely a vision (unfortunately). I’d take this article with a grain of salt.

Let first have all the units in the pipeline to be absorbed ……then start building again , and don’t forget all the resales from investors , because many of them will be the new next buyers again , so give them a chance , don’t pretend to have all the cake only for developers …….
