Brickell area: Brickell CitiCentre will feature three towers, two blocks north of Mary Brickell Village (pink on map). Two towers will be built on the west side of Miami Avenue (2&3 on map), and one tower will be located on the east. Ranging from 69 to 76 stories, all three towers in this $1.3 billion project would surpass the height of the Four Seasons, becoming Miami's new tallest buildings. The project was approved unanimously by the city's Planning Advisory Board and will be heard by the City Commission in September.

The Four Seasons is 789 feet tall, and Wachovia is 764 ft.

It doesn't appear that MacLee, the developer proposing Empire World Towers, has submitted complete plans to the city yet. The city's data are still reporting a building on that site that would be 56 stories, 659 ft tall. The information is still kinda sketchy, presumably financing, aviation issues, and other details.

So I guess the three citicentre towers range from at least 790 to 808 ft. Strange, given the 7 story differential.

odd indeed. I wonder if there is a difference in the height of the lobbies, or different floor heights altogether... The 69-floor one would average 11.44-foot ceilings, and 10.63 feet for the 76-floor.

A lot of the space is office space, which is probably located on the lower floors of just one of the towers. That would account for a difference in floor-to-ceiling ratio, since offices have much higher ceilings.

Just compare Wachovia to Four Seasons.

I like how they mentioned this project having wide sidewalks and plazas and retail. I don't care how tall it is, as long as it has good street interaction.

Some updates on Brickell Citi Centre:

The $1.3 billion mixed-use Brickell CitiCentre, 700 and 701 S. Miami Ave., would include three towers with 2,424 residential condos, more thant 200,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space and 130,000 square feet of offices.

  If approved as planned by the Miami City Commission, the project would create some of Miami's tallest buildings. [Developer Kevin Reilly]said recently he expects commissioners to review his request for a major use special permit in September and he plans to start construction within a year.

Gorgeous buildings, they should go well with 500 and Icon creating a nice cluster south of the CBD. I'm also happy to hear about the wide sidewalks and street interaction...

Brickell Citi Centre has been approved... three towers 76 (808 ft.), 72, and 69 stories tall. Article says these will become the tallest buildings in the county, but that seems to conflict with the height of the future Met 3, which is slated to climb 866 feet. Perhaps they're counting on this building being completed first and briefly being the tallest.

2,424 multifamily residential units, 133,721 square feet of office space, 87,438 square feet of retail and restaurant space and 2,808 parking spaces.

Isn't that something! Miami gets them by the handful.

gosh I hope so.... :) there's not much difference between 808 and 794, and being closer to the CBD I would think that the proximity to the CBD and its much more liberal heights might help it out...
