The 2022 List Of Every Supertall Tower Currently Being Planned In Miami

Developers are increasingly planning to build towers in Miami that will reach supertall status, with the real estate market here among the hottest anywhere.

Up first: The Waldorf Astoria Hotel & Residences is expected to break ground shortly as Miami’s first ever supertall tower

A number of other supertall towers have been announced in recent months, all by top-tier developers.

Below is a list of every supertall that we know of currently being planned in Miami.

A supertall tower is defined as reaching a height above 300 meters, or around 969 feet.

Supertalls in Miami also have a height cap due to FAA height restrictions in the area, a result of the nearby runways at MIA. The tallest planned projects usually reach a maximum height of 1,049 feet above sea level.

We’ve excluded those supertalls that haven’t had any publicly announced activity in the past few years from this list.

 

1. Waldorf Astoria Hotel & Residences (100 stories, 1,049 feet above sea level)

Developer PMG is preparing to break ground on this project imminently, with most condo units now sold. Site work is underway, and a permit for foundation work is near approval. Sieger Suarez is the design architect, with Carlos Ott the conceptual architect.

2. Major. (82 stories, 1,049 feet above sea level) 

Developer JDS formally submitted plans this month for Major. It will include mostly condos, along with food and beverage outlets.

 

 

3. One Brickell City Centre (80 stories, 1,049 feet above sea level) 

Related Companies, led by Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross, reportedly just announced plans to partner with Developer Swire Properties on this project. It will become the tallest and largest office building in Florida. The project was also resubmitted for approval to the FAA this month. Work will start in 2023, the report said.

 

4. One Bayfront Plaza  (92 stories, 1,049 feet above sea level)

Tibor Hollo’s Florida East Coast Realty announced last week it was moving its corporate headquarters to Brickell from on older building currently on the One Bayfront Plaza site – a sign that this project is moving forward. The new One Bayfront Plaza will be a branded, mixed-use supertall, a press release said. The FAA has approved a height of 1,044 feet above ground, 1,049 feet above sea level.

 

5. 1201 Brickell (also known as The Towers by Foster + Partners) (Twin towers, 81 and 79 stories, 1,049 feet above sea level) 

Tibor Hollo of Florida East Coast Realty and former Dodgers owner Frank McCourt are partners on this twin-tower project. It will include up to 660 condo units, and up to 220 hotel rooms. The FAA approved a height of 1,049 feet above sea level in 2016.

 

6. 609 Brickell (80 Stories)

Developers 13th Floor Investments and Key International are working to develop an 80-story tower at the The First Miami Presbyterian Church.

 

7 & 8. 1016 Northeast Second Avenue – Miami Worldcenter

New York-based developer Naftali Group has announced plans to build two residential towers at Miami Worldcenter. In a press release issued this week, the developer said towers will be supertalls.

9. 1428 Brickell (1,049 feet above sea level) 

Ytech International obtained FAA approval in January to build at a height of 1,040 feet above ground, or 1,049 feet above sea level. According to Ytech’s website, a luxury residential project with hotel-like services is planned.

 

Just missing this list are two towers that are both expected to break ground this year: The 70-story Okan Tower (902 feet above ground, or 915 feet above sea level) and the 80-story Cipriani Residences (939 feet above ground).

Fantastic. Add to these ten supertalls another thirty tall ones, in the fifties. Anyone who stays away from Miami for a few years will not recognize it.

Just a few months ago ppl were saying Waldorf Astoria would be looking lonely but look at it now!!! Miami on its way to becoming a global city ‼️

Haha…a few supertalls do not a global city make. A global world-class city also includes an excellent education system and excellent infrastructure (and a leader in the arts doesn’t hurt either). Typical Miami mindset, style over substance to think a few tall buildings make a city a global city … Haha … We’ll be a backwater in the rankings of cities until we actually start to act like a great city. And I don’t see that coming anytime soon.

Don’t worry, a expansion of the dinky Metromover system, some more fugly murals, and throwing money at MDC will be sure to make Miami a “world-class city.”

“I dont see that coming anytime soon.”

Of course YOU dont.

At todays NFT week conference, I was flanked by an Australian couple, and another Australian. They did not know each other, but they all flew to Miami to see what was happening.

The Australian couple came to open a Brickell office for their hedge fund.

Hosting NFT Week, Bitcoin Week, eMerge Americas and Art Basel should be some amount of evidence for you that Miami draws interest from around the world.

Only #1 and maybe #3 have a better chance than not of happening. But even just 1-2 supertall 1000 footers is a big deal in any metro area outside Chicago and NYC.

If I can take just three towers out of this list, Miami would be stunning. I don’t know about the rest of you, but Major, One Bayfront Plaza, and Waldorf are the best of this list

What about the project announced for the site where the convention center was being planned?

Based on the number of units and sq ft of retail, it would surely include at least one supertall.

Also, is the Miami Central development supposed to be twin supertalls or would they be too short?

they are too short

It’s hard to imagine supply not exceeding demand depending on the number of units hitting the market simultaneously with all these supertalls in the short term (if they all get built) but having said that keep pumping us locals need some better pricing!

Hopefully none of them fall over with the shoddy construction from most of these South Florida developers

No kidding, I worry about these megastructures when down here they couldn’t even get a pedestrian bridge or a 12 story condo right. Pretty much the only region in the whole country where such disasters have happened. That One Hard Rock Guitar that fell apart during construction is about the only other major disaster I can think of that didn’t happen in South Florida although that gives me concern for the one we do have down here in Hollywood

“Wealthy absentee property tax payers are a good thing”

Hey Anonymouse, you still talking? You think residents of this city and county don’t know by now about “wealthy absentee property tax payers? That shit has been going on before you were born and its just something that’s “par for the course.” Miami/MiamiDade county isn’t the only place where that happens so stop talking about that BS like its something new. Now take your childish and immature comments somewhere else and concentrate on growing the “F” up and getting a job.
