Which Miami Condo Towers Will Win the Battle of the Supertalls?

Apr 09, 2017 April 09, 2017

With the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) relaxing height restrictions in 2015, it seems developers have been racing to break records with one supertall after another. The sky’s going to be the limit for those who dream of snagging the best views (plus bragging rights) and standing above it all. With so many skyscrapers ready and in the offing, Miami’s skyline is in for a growth spurt.

Here are the top ten tallest condos (present and proposed) of Miami:

#1 The Towers by Foster + PartnersBrickell
Height: 1,050 ft.
Floors above Ground: To Be Announced
Developers: Tibor Hollo’s Florida East Coast Realty, Corigin Real Estate Group, McCourt Global
Design: Foster + Partners

Designed to be one of Miami's tallest condo buildings of the future, “The Towers” will consist of two connected buildings and 660 units. Design team Foster + Partners imagines a grand pedestrian plaza on the ground level extending into the waterfront, which is expected to bring “life back to the bay”. Condo residents along with the general public will be able to stroll through the plaza’s tropical garden, enjoying art galleries, shops and restaurants along the way. Unsightly parking will be tucked two stories underground.

#2 One Brickell City CentreBrickell
Height: 1,040 ft.
Floors Above Ground: 80
Developer: Swire Properties

As residents of One Brickell City Centre, you won't just move into a new condo - you'll gain an entire indoor city. Living in this supertall, you will have access to a signature restaurant and top-floor lounge. If you work in one of its class-A offices, you'll never need to venture outside the complex. Part of the larger Brickell City Center, there will also be a full-scale retail section and luxury hotel sharing the grounds.

#3 18Brickell
Height: 960 ft.
Floors Above Ground: 78
Developer: Claro Development, Karam Group
Design: Nichols, Brosch, Wurst, Wolfe & Associates

Replacing a Burger-King anchored shopping strip in Brickell, supertall 18 will feature ground-level shopping. Condos soar up from the retail space and parking garage, complete with access to an outdoor rooftop pool area. Designers took their inspiration from a flower in bloom for this 392-unit condo building. The penthouse suites (or petals) sprout up from the base, while the balconies increase in size like leaves.

#4 One River Point (Towers 1 and 2) – Downtown Miami
Height: 928 ft.
Floors Above Ground: 60 each
Developer: KAR Properties
Design: Rafael Vinoly Architects, Remi Tessier, Sasaki Associates

The two identical towers at One River Point have been designed to exude exclusivity and sophistication. The crown jewel of this amenity-heavy condo supertall will be its Sky Club. Occupying three stories, the Club is to include two restaurants, a cigar lounge, wine cellar and tasting room, chef’s kitchen, and screening room. There will also be a floating glass Skybridge with a waterfall cascading 85 feet down into a shimmering pool, appearing to flow right into the Miami River.

The sail-shaped Aston Martin Residences will also include a number of over-the-top amenities. Expect two private lobbies, an art gallery, access to a yacht marina and a helipad on the roof.
