Southeast Financial Center

The Southeast Financial Center at 764 feet tall and designed by the prestigious Chicago architectural firm of Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill was the first building in Miami over 500 feet tall when it topped out in 1983. To this day, it remains the favorite skyscraper of many of us in Miami.

^That and the former BOA (Miami Tower now?) are 2 of the best skyscrapers I have ever seen in person, for sure. There is some crappy movie, Terminal Velocity maybe, where a person base-jumps off the SFC.

I'm so jealous of Oklahoma City for getting a building like that. That building would look so great in Miami. It would fit right in.

I can't believe people say this building is ugly! Only because it replaced the singer building.

IMO it's gorgeous!

Don't get me wrong, the singer building was a masterpiece, but just wasn't practical as anything.

1 liberty plaza is a good building
