The U.S. city of Miami, Florida is the site of 307 high-rises,[1] 59 of which stand taller than 400 feet (120 m). The tallest building in the city is the 64-story Four Seasons Hotel & Tower, which rises 789 feet (240 m) in Miami's Brickell district and was completed in 2003.[2] It also stands as the tallest building in the state of Florida and the 51st-tallest building in the United States. The second-tallest skyscraper in the city is the Southeast Financial Center, which rises 764 feet (233 m).[3] Nine of the ten tallest buildings in Florida are located in Miami.

Miami's history of high-rises began with the 1912 completion of the six–story Burdine's Department Store, although the Freedom Tower, built in 1925, is Miami's best-known early skyscraper and remains an icon of the city.[4][5] From the mid-1990s through the late 2000s, Miami went through the largest building boom in the city's history. In what was dubbed a "Manhattanization wave",[6] there were nearly 60 structures proposed, approved or under construction in the city that were planned to rise over 492 feet (150 m) in height. As a result of the construction boom, only three of the city's 25 tallest buildings were completed before the year 2000, and the city has one of largest skylines in the United States.[7] The boom, however, ended abruptly in 2008 when the real estate market crashed and the late-2000s recession began. As of May 2011, the construction of many skyscrapers has been suspended, and many proposed high-rise projects in the city have been cancelled or delayed. 2011 saw a slight resurgence in the high-end housing market, with new condominium projects such as Brickell House announced for construction beginning in 2012.[8]

The tallest active skyscraper development currently taking place in Miami is One Bayfront Plaza, a mixed-use building proposed for 100 South Biscayne Boulevard, approved for construction since 2007, and scheduled to be completed in 2015.[9] Since then, it has gone through several design changes and is being given a start date of 2014. One Bayfront Plaza is the tallest building ever to be approved for construction in the city, and is expected to rise 1,010 feet (308 m), with 80 floors.[10] It also has the distinction of being the first skyscraper over 1,000 feet (305 m), also known as "supertall," to be approved in Miami. Proposals for comparably tall buildings in Miami are very rare due to the proximity of Miami International Airport (MIA). The main runways of MIA align planes taking off and landing right over the downtown area, and for this reason the Federal Aviation Administration sets precise height limits for construction in Downtown Miami.[11]

Tallest buildings[edit]

This lists ranks Miami skyscrapers that stand at least 400 feet (120 m) tall, based on standard height measurement. This includes spires and architectural details but does not include antenna masts.[A] An equals sign (=) following a rank indicates the same height between two or more buildings.

Timeline of tallest buildings[edit]

There have been several buildings in Miami that have served as the tallest building in the city. While the 5-story Burdine's Department Store was the first high-rise building in the city, the Freedom Tower is generally regarded as Miami's first skyscraper.[4][5] Not included in this list is the Coral Gables Biltmore Hotel located in nearby Coral Gables, Florida, which is located just outside of Miami and would have qualified as the tallest building from 1926 to 1928 standing 315 feet (96 m). If the New World Tower, constructed in 1965 at 357 feet (109 m) had been four feet higher, it would have surpassed the Dade County Courthouse and been the tallest building until 1972 when One Biscayne Tower was completed. From 2003 to 2008, the Manhattanization of the city led to a huge amount of new development. Several buildings that were under construction, approved, or proposed could have earned the title of tallest building in the city upon completion. However, other than the Four Seasons Hotel (2003), none of them made it before the market crashed in 2007.[70]

Notes[edit]

B. ^ a This building was originally known as the Ralston Building, but has since been renamed the Carrion Jewelry Center.
