South Florida’s development boom will produce three new tallest buildings in the cities of Miami, Sunny Isles Beach and Fort Lauderdale, and residents of these landmark projects will overlook kilometres of the Atlantic Ocean from hundreds of metres in the sky. Panorama Tower and Muse Residences have already eclipsed the competition in their respective cities and ushered in a new age of highrise luxury living, while 100 Las Olas is poised to do the same in the coming months.

Florida East Coast Realty is gearing up to welcome residents to the 85-storey, 265-metre-tall Panorama Tower, which boasts 821 luxury rental apartments, 208 hotel rooms, 50,000 square feet of retail space, and 100,000 square feet of medically oriented office space. An towering stamp on the skyline, the mixed-use development contains an entire floor dedicated to amenities. The 45,000-square-foot facility includes three private theatres, a sports lounge, a fitness centre, multiple social lounges, and private dining and wine tasting rooms. An additional space on the 22nd floor completes the experience with two heated pools and an adjoining sundeck and restaurant overlooking the skyline and Biscayne Bay.

The 198-metre Muse Residences is also approaching completion in Sunny Isles Beach, where Property Markets Group and S2 Development have executed the city’s tallest building. Designed by Carlos Ott and architect of record Sieger Suarez, the project’s twisting form donates space to fully furnished residences that divide each floor in the middle, creating two units that bear balconies running the entire width of the tower. It too comes packed with amenities, including a residents’ lounge, vanishing edge pool, fitness centre, and an automated parking system.

Like Panorama Tower, Fort Lauderdale’s 100 Las Olas will be occupied by a mix of programs, including residential, hotel and retail space. The SB Architects-designed development launched by developer Kolter Group features 121 residences, 238 Hyatt Centric hotel rooms, and 8,500 square feet of commercial retail space across 46 storeys. Scheduled to deliver in fall 2019, floor plans range in size from 1,501 to 2,964 square feet, and include two- to three-bedroom residences with floor-to-ceiling windows. Another expansive amenities package takes advantage of South Florida’s subtropical climate, with an elevated resort-style private pool, day cabanas and multiple lounging areas available.
