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.

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.

Agent 007's favored carmaker has already announced plans for its 391 luxury condos in Miami. While there won't be a showroom in the lobby, details like the color scheme and door handles will remind fans of the brand. 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.

#6 The Four Seasons Residences & HotelBrickell

The Four Seasons further treats guests to some extraordinary amenities like a 700-gallon saltwater fish tank, award-winning restaurant and wine room.

Miami Condos with Shabbat Elevators
Real Estate News Miami Condos with Shabbat Elevators
Last updated June 11, 2021. Whether you refer to it as the Sabbath, Shabbat, Shabbos, or by any other term, your religious commitment to observing a holy day of rest should not prevent you from enjoying a luxury condo lifestyle in the subtropical paradise that is Miami.  For this reason, a number of condo communities provide the convenience of a Shabbat or Sabbath elevator, which is a specially programmed elevator that stops automatically on every floor during the Jewish Sabbath, from sundown on Friday evening until sundown on Saturday of every week.  This service is provided in order to accommodate the Jewish religious law that prohibits religious observers from pushing buttons or operating machinery during the Sabbath. While Miami today is known as a particularly Jewish-friendly metropolis, Jews were not even allowed to enter Miami Beach Hotels until the late 1940s. But by the 1950s they began to lay down roots in Miami Beach and to impact the economy, politics, and social flavor...

Brickell Avenue Bridge Schedule, Traffic and Solutions -- All You Need To Know
Transportation Brickell Avenue Bridge Schedule, Traffic and Solutions -- All You Need To Know
Ever tried driving from Brickell to Downtown Miami for lunch? Most Miamians dread the thought of catching the dreaded Brickell Avenue bridge, a drawbridge that opens every hour or half-hour during non-curfew hours to allow river and traffic and boats to pass under.  * This article was updated on June 7, 2021 So what’s the problem? A big one! When the bridge opens, it ends up turning the city into a parking lot. With the last two building booms, there’s been a sudden surge in Downtown population since 2010 that has not stopped, and hence, denser traffic. And with Brickell now one of Miami’s hottest neighborhoods, serving as Miami’s vital financial hub, dense residential condo neighborhood and go-to place for nightlife, travel to and from Brickell and Downtown Miami is unavoidable.  This is why almost every second year, the FDOT faces requests to place restrictions on opening the bridge for maritime traffic during rush hour or extending curfew hours. However, listen to the marine...
