Under Construction

Met 3 | Metropolitan Financial Center Miami

Height: 252m
Floors: 74

Met 3 will be the tallest building Miami adding its unique signature to the spledind sklyline. At 74 stories high, this architectual wonder will enjoy 360 degree views of the enire Miami Metro area. It is with great pleasure that we announce the presales for Met 3.

Metropolitan Miami is redefining downtown. The heart of any great city is its downtown area, and Metropolitan Miami is redefining downtown. Metropolitan Miami is the nucleus of a tropical lifestyle where local meets international, all with an edgy, urban vibe. It's a place where an interesting, diverse crowd of people will assemble for entertainment, dining, the arts, culture, shopping, sports, socializing or just haning out.

A unique opportunity is available now to register for the first release of units and prices. 88 tower units are released for our presale.

Interest in the entire Metropolitan Miami project has been extremely high. Met 1 is now just over 90% sold out and construction is underway. Met 3 will house Whole Foods as the retail anchor at the ground level of the building with a 45,000 sq. ft. store.

Metropolitan Miami is flanked on the south side by the future site of the Dupont Towers, and the Miami River and on the east side by One Miami and Biscayne and the rest of Miami's great neighborhoods are only moments away and with an ample road system that leads everywhere.

This Fullerton-Diaz designed project from Cabi Developers features two towers which are quite reminiscient of the Empire State Building in Manhattan!

A plastic shithole? :stupid:

But the city is changing, and I choose to stay and be part of a positive change rather than running somewhere else and dealing with a different set of problems instead of the ones I'm familiar with here in Miami.

Although I'm amazed at some of these designs, particularly the one I saw marked as "APPROVED" I keep dreading a repeat of the 1755 tsunami.
Miami Restriction Map

^^Meaning height restriction map.
This map shows where in Downtown Miami and in Midtown Miami very tall buildings can be built. We can also use it as a reference for pointing out where certain projects are located in the city in relation to each other. For instance, Brickell Avenue begins south of the Miami River and everything with Brickell in the project name will be in this location. Brickell Avenue is Miami's wall street and thus it is called the Brickell Financial District.

Immediately north of the Miami River and extending just beyond the MacArthur Causeway (I-395 or 441) is our Central Business District (CBD). The MacArthur Causeway connects Downtown Miami to South Beach with the four giant condos in a row along Biscayne Blvd that we now refer to as the Biscayne Wall being immediately south of the MacArthur Causeway. The drive from South Beach into Downtown Miami has become very dramatic as you now drive through a skyscraper canyon.

^^ These shots of Icon Brickell also include some shots of Epic because they are directly across the Miami River from each other.
The Marquis (northern most tower in the Biscayne Wall)

The Marquis is actually at 1100 Biscayne Blvd and the MacArthur Causeway. It is listed at 679 feet tall, but some sources say the building actually reached 700 feet. Approaching it from South Beach on the MacArthur Causeway is very dramatic.

Paramount Park at 756 feet tall is planned for 700 Biscayne Blvd by the same developers of Paramount Bay at Edegwater Square. Plans are to start Paramount Park as soon as Paramount Bay is finished.

From behind with Ten Museum Park on the right.

Paramount Bay at Edgewater Square

Emporis lists this building at 496 feet while the World Almanac and the Miami Herald lists it at 562 feet (building number 66 in this Miami Herald interactive diagram below). I believe 562 feet is probably the actual height of the building and is the farther north that the Miami skyline current extends with buildings over 500 feet tall.
