Most of Florida's ten tallest buildings are in Miami's Brickell and Downtown.

The tallest building in Florida is currently Panorama Tower, which comes in at 868 feet. Completed in 2018 by Miami-based Florida East Coast Realty includes 2.6 million square feet of apartments, offices, and retail space.

But Panorama Tower will likely lose its title in less than a decade. Five projects proposed in Miami will surpass Panorama Tower's height. One of them, Okan Tower ( learn more about the project ), has already broken ground. The other four: Waldorf Astoria Hotel & Residences, One Brickell City Centre, 888 Brickell, and One Bayfront Plaza, are slated to rise 1,049 feet, the maximum height the Federal Aviation Administration allows in the Brickell-downtown area.
