Tallest bldg between ATL and MIA is JAX!

Recommended Posts

From what I've read on Emporis.com the Bank of America Building in Jax is the

tallest between Miami and Atlanta at 188m (617ft).

Are there any proposed buildings in Tampa or Ft. Lauderdale to exceed this

height? Tampa does, however, have a higher quantity and higher average

height than Jax.

If Tampa has anything proposed or under construction I hope that Jax steps

up to the plate and builds taller.

Really?

I thought Tampa had the tallest building besides Miami (in florida).

But is Bank of America building proposed,in construction or built ?

If it is built,that surprised me,'cause I thought it was Tampa that had the tallest.

You are right Brickell. I forgot about the Bank of America Bldg in Miami also being taller. They are roughly the same height though, with the BOA in Jax being just 8 feet shorter.

The title of this thread is "Tallest bldg between ATL and MIA is JAX". The operative word is between. This does not include the bldgs in ATL and MIA. Reading comprehension.

Inferiority complex?

Tall Tampa,

The sole purpose of this post was to share a fact that caught my attention and to ask what else may be out there proposed that I wasn't aware of. Fact is fact (within the limitations of my initial post) and if anyone has any information discrediting this, please feel free to post it for all to read.

There was no hidden agenda to boost the morale of my fellow Jacksonvillians due to a fabled "inferiority complex". Frankly, I'm amazed that this thread has recieved as much attention as it has, furthermore, it was dead almost two months ago only to be awakend by someone who misread the post. Let this thread die.

If anyone still wants to take pokes at Jacksonville's city pride, please post here.

Point taken. I certainly have no ill will against Jax, as I'm there monthly on business and enjoy the town very much.
