Miami Downtown Development authority released an interactive 3D map of the Magic City skyline. With so much construction and development in Miami, this map can show you what Miami will look like when it’s all said and done.
- New interactive 3D map shows Miami's skyline of tomorrow.
- See proposed construction and the development pipeline in downtown Miami.
- Condo development is growing in Miami with a wealth of new housing options.
High-rise condominiums and apartment buildings are sprouting up like weeds in Miami.
Anywhere there’s a crack in the pavement, you can bet your bottom [enter relevant foreign currency being used for development] that a shiny new condo will soon pop out.
All these developments and projects are changing the Miami skyline, though, and the Downtown Development Authority has figured out a great way to show it off.
“This map not only puts critical information into the hands of those making real-time investment decisions, it paints a powerful picture of how Miami’s skyline is literally being reimagined before our very eyes,” said Alyce Robertson, executive director of Miami DDA, in a press release.
Maps like these can be confusing, or difficult to navigate, but Miami DDA made sure to make this as user-friendly as possible.
There are four check-boxes in the top left corner to help navigate the map. “Show Buildings” and “Show Development Pipeline” are automatically checked, but you can also have the map show zoning restrictions and outline the Miami metros.
Beyond that it’s pretty simple maneuvering.
The current developments, recently finished and proposed projects are different colors and each building affords the visitor an option to click for details.
Until this visual model was released, the only place to see Miami’s skyline in 3-D was on Google maps. This new map displays the proposed buildings and how those will affect the skyline.
If you’re in a building, say, Miami World Center 1 located at 700 North Miami Avenue (currently under construction), your view of the ocean is about to be disrupted by Freedom Square at 600 Biscayne Avenue, a proposed development.
This makes the map useful in terms of figuring out what is going where and just how big of an impact hew construction will have on Miami’s skyline.
