The Top 10 Tallest Buildings in Miami You Can Live In

Sep 12, 2023 September 12, 2023

If you’ve been visiting Miami over the years, you’ve probably noticed that the buildings keep getting taller. Ever since the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) upped its height restrictions to 1,049 feet in 2015, Miami’s skyline has continued to elevate itself with glimmering designs of glass and light.

The tallest residential building in Miami, as of this post, is the apartment high-rise Panorama Tower at 828 feet. Considering we’re only ranking the tallest condo buildings in Miami, you won’t find the skyscraper on this list. And as new condo towers are announced constantly, Panorama Tower will soon be forfeiting its Tallest Miami Building title to one of the planned supertalls in development listed down below.

Call them #supertalls or #skyscrapers, this new breed of condo tower (at least for Miami) is set to redefine the city’s skyline and take luxury living and the Magic City to new heights, bringing it on par with New York City, Chicago, Hong Kong, and so on. So, which Miami building gets to claim the crown? Check out our list below for the tallest buildings in Miami, and as an added bonus, we’ll give you the soon-to-be tallest buildings with our pre-construction list. Prepare if you’re scared of heights!

Lifestyle Out of the Kitchen! The Best Condos with Pickleball and Padel Courts in Miami
Miami is known for its riveting blend of cultures, active lifestyles, a deep love of sport, and for embracing the curated and curious. Nothing sums up this concept more than the growing popularity of padel and pickleball. At this point, you’re probably either saying, “Yes! I love playing them both,” or “A what ball? A cucumber and gherkin game? What the hell are you talking about?” Truth is pickleball has taken America by storm. It’s the fastest growing sport in the U.S. for the fifth consecutive year in a row, after being created near Seattle in 1965. And padel has long been a community racquet sport in Europe, after the first official courts opened in Marbella, Spain in 1974 (but it was created by Mexican Enrique Corcuera in 1969). And we can attest to the fun and addictive nature of both of these petite iterations of tennis—several members of our top Miami real estate brokerage play padel and pickleball!
