What’s the view of Miami like from 1,000 feet? You may soon find out.
One developer, Property Markets Group, has quietly filed plans with the city for a 1,036-foot hotel and condo tower on Biscayne Boulevard that the developers say will be the tallest residential building south of New York City.
Picture a slender column of unevenly stacked glass bricks protruding from the downtown skyline like Gulliver among so many Lilliputians, and you get the idea of the design by Miami’s Sieger Suarez Architects.
PMG has created a website for 300 Biscayne, but it contains little information beyond some renderings. According to its city application, the tower would have 93 stories, 640 dwellings, a hotel and a restaurant on a terrace on the 18th floor. The super-tower would be a companion to its much lower X Miami apartment tower, now under construction on the back portion of a lot PMG owns on the Boulevard.
The PMG project is actually a total makeover of a previous supertall, twin-tower project that would have reached 110 stories on the same site.
