Introducing The Curbed Miami Development Heatmap

View as Map

They call Miami the Dubai of the United States mockingly, but that description has more than just a grain of truth to it. The last time somebody counted, there were about 60-something new towers under construction, planned, or proposed in South Florida since the end of the last real estate crash. And that doesn't even include un-tower-like buildings. Here is a recap of much of that new construction, in handy-dandy map form, referencing Curbed Miami's coverage of each project thus far. If Curbed hasn't written about it yet, it's not on here. Introducing the first edition of the Curbed Miami Development Heatmap, after the jump.

Back from the dead, apparently, the Related Group has scooped up Unika, and old project from the last real estate boom on a stretch of Biscayne Boulevard between the Design District and more MiMo-oriented environs that hasn't seem much activity lately, but could use a shot in the arm.

Copy Link

Miami, FL 33131

It's back from the dead. Oh, it's dead again. Could it be back? Nope, it's actually dead, but there's something else that developer Mallory Kauderer wants to do it. Either way, there's action at the Brickell Flatiron site. Let's see what gets built.

25. EnV Brickell

Copy Link
901 S Miami Ave
Miami, FL 33130

Mary Brickell Village, as successful as it is, is only half finished. The upper half was supposed to be a residential tower, which was never built due to, guess what, that giant financial crisis thing that happened recently.

Copy Link
9011 Collins Ave
Miami, FL

Surfside's extremely historic Surf Club (Winston Churchill painted watercolors there.

Bon appetit!

Copy Link
1444 Biscayne Blvd
Miami, FL 33132

The former firm of now-retired international architect I.M. Pei has designed a set of towers for a site just north of the Arsht Center that have are straight out of the mother-lovin' 80s.
