You've got to be kidding!!!!! :w00t: Thirteen new skyscrapers in one year in one city? Unbelievable. At that rate, it shouldn't take Miami too long to reach New York's total. B)

Atlanta's Symphony Tower in Midtown is around 650 ft. Atlanta has a lot more than 3 towers going up. More like 5 or 6 at least. A few more are on the way for 2005.

I have said many times that Miami does not get the appreciation that it deserves for having one of the best skylines in North America. And it certainly has some of the best looking buildings as well.

Wow, I had no idea Miami was such a hotbed for skyscraper activity. I'll be looking forward to seeing that skyline in a few years.

Atlanta is getting exactly what it needs, a lot of infill 10-20 story buildings, many residential. It's filling in a lot of open lots, single use plots, and surface parking lots.

Congrats to Miami, the building boom there is just amazing.

Good work Lakelander. I'm surprised to see none of the Tampa projects on that list. What's going on over there?

The Dupont building here in Miami is being torn down to make way for 2 more towers. Not sure if that counts as groundbreaking or not.

Miami is getting a ton of infill as well.

Yes, that would count as site prep work. How tall is the tower on the Dupont site? While I was down there, I also noticed that the old Everglades Hotel was in the early stages of being demolished to be replaced by a twin tower project. How tall are those?

I don't know the heights but I believe that Everglades on the Bay will be twin 49 story towers. The Dupont's, according to this site will be 60 and 48. http://www.miamirealestatetrends.com/pages/DupontTowers.aspx

The Plaza on Brickell, if it hasn't started already, should begin pretty soon.

It really is amazing what's going on down here.

Woot woot for Peninsula in Jax! We made the list, lol! I am still shocked at the amount of condo construction in downtown Miami. What a place that will be in 5-10 years!

I am really hoping the two new Riverpointe Towers on Jacksonville's Southbank are still on schedule to break ground at mid year. Both of those buildings are 750 feet tall. Between this development and the Strand and Peninsula already going up, Jacksonville's going to have an amazing skyline.

^Sorry, this list is only for buildings only 300ft tall. It would be to hard to keep up and compile when considering all of the mid-rise buildings 10 floors & up that broke ground in 2004. With than being said, the tallest tower of Premiere Trade Plaza is the one +300ft tall Orlando tower, that broke ground in 2004.

$15 billion of housing planned in Miami

By Yeleny Suarez

With an unprecedented 209 mixed-use developments to house 58,317 residential units planned in Miami at a projected construction cost of more than $15 billion, city officials say the urban building boom shows no sign of slowing.

Of the projects, 32 have been finished at a cost of $1.9 billion, and 31, for $3.6 billion, are rising now, officials say.

Another 59 projects at costs of $7.3 billion have been approved; 21, for $1.9 billion, are in the application phase; and 66, at $376 million, are in preliminary phases.

"Because Miami is an international market, it is very difficult to forecast when and how the market will slow down," said Luciana Lamardo-Gonzalez, city special projects coordinator. "Other municipalities like Chicago have already started to see a slowdown. However, at this time, Miami has shown no signs" of one.

Veteran real estate consultant Michael Cannon of Integra Realty said he is unsure of Miami's future market demand. "There is so much money fueling the market, I can't predict where it's going," he said. "It's going to be interesting to see what is going to happen this year."

The 209 developments do not include tens of thousands of housing units rising or planned elsewhere in mushrooming Miami-Dade County.

Only five mixed-use residential projects in the city have been cancelled.

"Projects can be cancelled for any multitude of reasons, and if so, it is done by the applicant, not the city," said Kevin Walford of the city's planning department. "Projects that come for preliminary review once or twice and are never heard of again can be considered cancelled."

Downtown's future looks promising, with 72 projects totaling 32,732 units at an estimated construction cost of $10 billion. The next-largest clusters are in Wynwood and Edgewater, with 7,240 units in 40 projects at $1.8 billion, and Coral Way, with 23 projects totaling 2,999 units at a projected cost of $277 million.

Seventeen projects are planned for Little Havana, with 2,596 units ($199 million); 12 for Allapattah with 3,238 units ($529 million); 11 each for northeast Miami and the upper east side, 3,053 units ($840 million); eight for West Little Havana, 2,078 units ($247 million); six for Flagami, 3,258 units ($249 million); five for Overtown, 765 units ($66 million); two for Little Haiti, 182 units ($20 million); and one for southwest Coconut Grove and Model City, 176 units ($47 million).

Ms. Lamardo-Gonz

Dont worry, this year well haveNorth Orange, 55 west, The Vue, Orlando Towers, The twin Ivanhoe projects, not to mention the 500'+ Peabody Expansion :D .

Miami is growing at an insane rate. Now is this all sprawled out or concentrated in the downtown area? Either way its mindblowing. :ph34r:

From my visit to Miami, a couple of weeks ago, most of it seems to be concentrated in the CBD, the Omni area (just north of the CBD) and Brickell (just South of the CBD). The CBD itself, was much more vibrant than I ever imagined it to be. Out of the South's largest cities, it seems to be the most retail oriented downtown, especially in Florida. Hopefully, with the new towers, many of which are residential, the nightlife component will be greatly enhanced, as well.
