Yes. Unfortunately portions of downtown Miami are in the airport landing approach so they jurisdiction over building heights.

This is a good shot for showing downtown Miami in relation to Miami International Airport.

Terrific shot, but that's not a good spot for the airport. Edmonton recently closed its city airport and now they're seeing $5 billion+ of development proposed in the downtown. Edmonton's current tallest is only 149m but with the airport gone they're building a 220m hotel and a 257m office building.

I'm not sure if moving MIA would work out as well as it has for Edmonton. It would be a logistical nightmare for sure. Miami gets more international air traffic than any other U.S. city outside of New York. There is also a healthy air freight industry. Then, we have the environmentalists who will scream all bloody hell if we move the airport anywhere near the Everglades. It would just be a lot more complicated than it seems for Miami to move the airport.

To answer your question about the Signature Tower, I quote the following statement from Agung R. Prabowo, Director of Danayasa Arthatama Tbk (SCBD / Sudirman Central Business District), the owner of Signature Tower, in a latest news related to it.
................. (translated from Bahasa Indonesia).......
"In addition, because there has never been such a massive development in Indonesia, on the licensing terms, a lot of new rules that arise and need to be reviewed for eligibility super-highrise buildings," said Agung.

Nevertheless, the company remains optimistic the building that is planned to be as high as 100 floors can be started in the near future.

Agree, it's not likely. Btw, Edmonton's airport wasn't moved. The smaller city airport closed but they already had a much bigger main airport on the outskirts. As you can see, it wasn't the headache that closing MIA would be.

Rather than 953 feet, I don't know why they just don't go ahead and take it above 300 meters and give us another supertall.

953 Foot World Trade Center Tower Plan Submitted for Biscayne Boulevard



Quote:
A group of developers has submitted plans to the City of Miami for a 77 story tower planned to be the World Trade Center of the Americas for Biscayne Boulevard in Downtown Miami, on the site of the Holiday Inn at 340 Biscayne Boulevard, reports The Next Miami. The tower, designed by Arquitectonica, will take up every inch of allowable development under the zoning code, be mixed use, with offices on levels 16 to 23, a 100 room hotel on floors 27 to 36, and residential from 37 on up to 76.

Aren't you lucky I just finished compiling this list? Sorry, but compiling 100-150m has just gotten too exhausting. We have a ton in that range though.

Miami in the 2015 World Almanac
(* Under construction as of Oct. 2014)
831 Panorama Tower *
789 Four Seasons
764 Southeast Financial Center
712 900 Biscayne (we all know this isn't true)
679 The Marquis (I got it from the marketing director Arquitectonia - 708 feet)
655 Wells Fargo
634 Brickell CityCentre Office Tower 3 (we know this isn't true) *
631 Mint (I don't believe it)
630 Infinity at Brickell
625 Total Bank building
615 Marina Blue
610 Plaza at Brickell Tower I
601 Epic Residences & Hotel
599 SLS Brickell *
586 Icon Brickell North Tower
586 Icon Brickell South Tower
585 Ten Museum Park (I don't believe it)
555 Paramount at Edgewater Square
554 50 Biscayne
554 Quantum on the Bay South Tower (probably slightly shorter)
550 Biscayne Beach *
549 Brickell Heights North Tower *
548 Paraiso Bay Tower 1 *
548 Paraiso Bay Tower 2 *
543 Opera Tower
538 The Viscayne North Tower
538 The Viscayne South Tower
536 Quantum on the Bay North Tower (I don't believe it)
529 Brickell Heights South Tower *
528 Jade at Brickell Bay
525 Plaza at Brickell Tower 2 (No way it's that tall)
524 Brickell House (with the barely perceptible spires - yes)
522 Brickell CityCenter Condo Tower 3 *
520 Santa Maria
520 Brickell CityCentre Condo Tower 2 *
516 Brickell CityCentre Hotel Tower *
512 Ivy (I don't believe it)
510 Stephen Clark Bldg.
503 Brickell CityCentre Condo Tower 1 *
502 Mariott Marquis
501 Wind (I don't believe it)
500 1450 Brickell (the project manager checked the plans for me and said 508)

Under construction later in 2014
706 One Thousand Museum Park *
634 Echo Brickell *
601 One Paraiso *
595 SLS Lux Brickell *
548 1010 Brickell *

This link shows just about everything that is planned. We're anticipating that the market will stay strong through 2015, so there's is still lots more to come.

http://www.skyscrapercenter.com/inte...put%5B%5D=list

I can hardly wait for my avatar to read OBCC 300m+ U/C and to see what all else makes it to construction by that benchmark.

The 2015 World Almanac is wrong in that term.... The 3rd with the most construction in tall buildings in north america should be Mexico City

Miami has 13 U/C +150m

Mexico City has 18 U/C +150m 4 of them are +200m and one supertall in PREP (not counted until it reaches above ground level)

Quantum, you seem to be the expert on miami; where do you think the city will be in 10 years? From what ive been reading on Miami development, Ive taken that its very hard to get a building to be a supertall in Miami because of the flight paths that would be disturbed. Don't take this the wrong way, im not trying to bash Miami or anything. Im just curious. Do you think Miami can become a great skyline with buildings limited to 1000 feet?

Miami share the same fate as Singapore, without a supertall

However a supertall doesnt guarantee best skyline


It all depends on the quality, density and planning of the skyline
