As shown above, the amount of these proposals even surpass Chicago and some Chinese cities, reaching 8 as of now, it is very rare for a American city except of New York City. However the problem is, that none of these supertall towers has ever get into real construction phase, at most preparation, let alone to be built, the city’s first supertall approved known as One Bayfront Plaza was proposed 10 years ago, the construction seems still unlikely to get started in a short time, but now that it has been on site preparation, seems things are getting better, let’s wait for more progress.
One of the major factors of this problem is the provisions made by FAA. Given that the location of Miami International Airport being too close to the downtown, plus the majority of flight paths of the city are direct above the downtown area, FAA makes the height limit for Miami more strict than other cities, while in some cases a height of 2000-foot is fine, such as Chicago Spire in Chicago, where both airport and flight paths are further away from downtown.
