MIAMI | Brickell Financial Ctr Phase 1 & 2 | 903 FT - 68 FLOORS | 517 FT - 40 FLOORS

This is a multi use project already under construction just south of the river in the Brickell District.

Brickell Financial Center Phase One : A 40 story / 517 ft. office tower.
Brickell Financial Center Phase Two : A multi use project segemented into 3 sections with the two tallest towers reaching 903 feet / 68 stories. Phase Two will consist of office, condos & a hotel.



Construction site pic looking east:



This one flew under the radar but it is U/C now and will be Miami's tallest buildings at 903 feet. The twin towers have been dubbed the rabbit ears!

Great for Miami. I wonder what the cladding will be like on those lower floors. From those night renders, it looks like polished granite and glass, but it's had to tell. Anything shiny to offset some of those painted concrete towers will do a lot to balance out the Miami skyline, which is being dominated by condo towers right now.

Wow, where did this come from? This is a new tallest by far for Miami, and there hasn't been a word on it.

I'm assuming though the taller tower has not begun construction yet. Right?

It's a tuning fork! Or a taser. Looks cool I guess, though I've never been a fan of buildings that split. Love the height.

Correct. They're starting with the smaller and it's more or less a wait and see on the 2nd tower. They seem to be moving very fast on this project however.

Yea this is for sure the tallest I've seen come out of there for a while. Except for that twin tower proposal.
