Approval Granted for Tallest Miami Highrise

Posted on 24 June 2024 by connectcre

A Miami planning agency okayed the construction of three highrises, one of which is slated to be the tallest in Miami. The tallest of the three will rise to 1,044 feet, higher than the 868-foot-high Panorama Tower on Brickell Avenue. The three towers will be built where the James L. Knight Center and the 615-room Hyatt Regency now stand. The project is slated to break ground in 2026 and open in 2030.

Called Miami Riverbridge, the project will be built by Hyatt Hotels Corp. and Miami-based Gencom on a 4-acre city-owned parcel at 400 S. Second Ave.

Designed by Arquitectonica, Miami Riverbridge will consist of 1,342 multifamily apartment units, a new 615-room Hyatt Regency, 264 serviced apartments managed by Hyatt, 100,000 square feet of commercial space and 1,180 parking spaces. The S. Florida Business Journal reports the apartments and hotel rooms will be housed in three towers linked by a sky bridge with an upscale restaurant and lounge.
