I often wonder about this when I see high-altitude photos of Shaghai!

China will have to document and record everything at some point. Till then we have no choice, but to go by what's been counted. If New York can count their buildings, so can every Chinese city. They're just being lax and negligent.

City officials wouldn't be doing this if they weren't anticipating what's coming.

Yes, this is all north of the financial district and the CBD. So they are essentially talking about expanding downtown Miami farther north while anticipating future growth in these areas. The financial district is already going to be dense as all hell.

Is it an extension of downtown then, or will there be a visual/psychological gap between the 2?

You can see all of the areas mentioned in this photo, mid-to-upper left. See the bridge in the upper middle of the photo with boat passing under it (I-195)? That is the upper most boundary of downtown. That is the midtown area, but it is all going to eventually meld into one huge downtown.

Ok thanks. That's going to be quite an expansive footprint when it fills in. That looks to be around 5 km or 2 miles in 'US speak'.

Yes! And it's becoming increasingly difficult to do it all justice in just one photograph. In this first photo here, the right one-third of the photo will eventually look like the middle third, except that the buildings there cannot be more than 649 feet tall because the Edgewater district is right in line with MIA runways. Some of the Edgewater projects that didn't make it to construction in the last decade when the market collapsed have been taken over by other developers. In the second photo below, the left half will eventually look like the right half.

In this aerial photo, courtesy of Ross Cobb of www.FloridaPhoto.com, Wynwood is in the upper left. It is the western half of Midtown opposite Edgewater.

This is part of what makes Miami a contender for one of the best skylines by 2025.

The 80-story mixed-use One Brickell Citycentre at 700 Brickell Avenue has now become the final piece of the puzzle in this project.

So many cities around the world are building so much right now that where somebody falls in the standings in 2025 is pretty much a toss up!

In the photo of mine below the rendering, our new 80-story presumed supertall will go just to the right of the text. The Swire logo is facing SW 7th Street which is along the Brickell Citicentre text with Brickell Avenue to the right.
