Top 3 Iconic Buildings in Miami

Every famous city in the world has its own iconic architecture, and Miami’s unique skyline keeps renewing itself every year. But some buildings, like the Miami Tower or the Atlantis Condominium, became instant classics from the very first moment they were inaugurated. If you want to learn some fun things about these iconic buildings, keep reading below… Here are our Top 3 most iconic buildings in Miami:

1.    Miami Tower
Some might say that this is the most iconic building in Miami. It’s the seventh tallest development in the city, and with its 625 feet of height, it can be seen from many spots in Miami. This 47-story development was built in 1987 and designed by the Pei Cobb Freed & Partners architectural firm. It became a classic right away, and what’s more striking about this building is its $1.5 million LED system that, during the nights, displays all kinds of colors with movement and messages. 
It’s common to see it displaying the colors of particular holidays; it’s definitely quite a show. Miami Tower is one of the most important buildings not only in Miami but in the entire state of Florida.

2.    Atlantis Condominium

Another instant classic built in the early 1980s. This luxurious landmark became quite famous thanks to the opening credits of the television series “Miami Vice” and because of its unique design; it’s actually quite easy to recognize and remember thanks to the beautiful glass facade and the 5-story palm court which is cut out of the building. Located on Brickell Avenue, it’s definitely one of the most memorable buildings in Miami and a very important part of its modern skyline.

3.    Icon Brickell

Now, to mention a much newer building (2008), Icon Brickell should be in everyone’s top list of the most beautiful buildings in Miami. It features some of the best views in the entire city; the turquoise pool right in the middle of the three towers and a fantastic overview of the Miami canals right on their way towards the Caribbean Sea. It’s 586 feet tall, and its modern design and iconic location make it one of the most important buildings in the area, and definitely one of the most beautiful skyscrapers in the city.

The best thing about the Miami skyline is that it keeps renewing itself every year. Currently, there are some great projects about to start and some buildings soon to open their doors for the first time, such as the One Thousand Museum by Zaha Hadid Architects in Biscayne Boulevard. It will be 700 feet tall, full of luxury, and will have some of the best amenities you could ever imagine. It will be finished in 2018 and many of the apartments have already been sold.
