Miami’s Six Tallest Towers Under Construction

Miami is once again undergoing a wave of construction that is remaking the skyline.

With the current crop, there will be over 50 towers above the 500-foot mark in downtown Miami alone.

Miami’s skyline has grown rapidly. The vast majority of the city’s 50 tallest towers were completed in just the last decade.

Below is a list of the six tallest under construction as of August 2017. (Excluded are a number of 649-foot towers being built in Sunny Isles.)

 

6 – Echo Brickell (637 feet above ground, 57 stories) – topped off:

Too far into the future to even begin cheering those 2…

Those are classified as super talls. 1000+ or above

Fredric

I agree. Once at least one of those two supertalls is finally U/C, I will feel like Miami has finally, truly arrived in the big time.

Can we get into the 1000+ ranges already.

The most sublime is the Flatiron building. Love those Art Deco streamlined balconies.

The skyline at night will be an amazing sight in a few years.

Look at all the space around Paramount. Wow, it really is happening. Park West will become walkable. Just looking at the website more — 25 acres, 40 amenities, gorgeous building….I think it may replace 1000 Museum as my new #1 future development just because it’s so unique.

Even if there are new skyscrapers in the skyline of Miami, they aren’t gonna replace One Thousand Museum for it’s luxury condo spaces, Every skyscraper has their own purposes and styles, but I actually agree with you.

All very tall, beautiful buildings if you ask me

I wonder if they’ll do anything about the infrastructure that is required to open one of these buildings… yes beautiful buildings, but the streets are under water after it rains for 10 minutes. Not only that, but Miami is one of the most underpaid cities in the country yet apartments cost over 1 Mil! If you are going to make housing so expensive make sure our income is up there. Yes other cities like NYC and San Francisco are expensive too, but income is way higher!

Like the list. Prefer to see what is under construction and not topped off. Helps me look forward to what the skyline will become.

Wonder if they’re going to fix the (unattractive) pedestal of 1000 museum? Looks great in renderings, but nothing like the real thing yet.

I believe Jade Signature is still finishing up, Turnberry, Muse, and the Armani Tower.

This is great, love to see Miami thriving and becoming a greater Intl hub… My concern though traffic, transportation, we really need a better system to be able to accommodate all the new residents and businesses.

Absolutely disgusting what has happened to the skyline in Miami no one can see the water anymore because of greedy Developers

If you have to rely on looking over someone else’s property for your water view, you can count on losing it sooner or later.

Really?…Miami is flat, meaning it has no topography – no mountains or hills whatsoever. if you’re not driving over a bridge or standing on the shoreline of the beach or bay, or up in some highrise, more than likely you’re not going to see the ocean.

Now if you’re out there creating jobs like these developers, stop it with the useless whining.

I agree, we should keep expanding toward the everglades, more single homes and gated communities with no personality is what we need. That way you can see the ocean everyday in the morning for two longs hours from your USB, when you commute to civilization.
