Panorama Tower has reached a milestone for Florida development by completing construction as the state’s tallest building.

At 868 feet, or 85 stories, the Miami building by Florida East Coast Realty is the tallest residential tower south of New York City. The building has a mix of apartments, hotel rooms, offices, and retail space.

Because of the building’s great height, its elevators for the higher floors zoom up at 1,200 feet per minute.

Located at 1101 Brickell Ave., Panorama Tower contains 821 apartments, a 208-room Hyatt Centric hotel, 400,000 square feet of office space, and 75,000 square feet of retail. Residents started moving into the building in June. The first 50 floors have a temporary certificate of occupancy, so residents will be moving into the upper floors later this year.

Rents start at $2,525 per month for a one-bedroom apartment, $2,758 for a two-bedroom apartment, and $6,736 for three-bedroom apartments. Although that is higher than the average rent in downtown Miami, no other building can offer views from such a height as Panorama Tower.

Each apartment has a wine cooler and bar plus a media package with fiber optic wiring. The 100,000 square feet of amenities at Panorama Tower include a pool deck, a children’s play room, a game room with a billiards and foosball tables, a community dining room, a wine room, a cyber cafe, three theaters with movie-style seating, a 15,000-square-foot fitness center, a sauna, a steam room, electric vehicle charging stations, a pet care facility, a restaurant/lounge on the 52nd floor, and a “muse” room for music practice and recording.

Tenants in Panorana Tower include Brickell International Academy, Florida International University for graduate programs in business and real estate, and Pipeline Brickell.

Meanwhile, FECR plans to build two Miami skyscrapers that would exceed Panorama Tower in height: One Bayfront Plaza and the Towers by Foster + Partners.
