UPDATED, May 30, 9:45 a.m.: More than 20 years ago, residential skyscrapers started sprouting up in Brickell and downtown Miami, slowly replacing low-rising condo and apartment buildings, older hotels and retail buildings.

Today, Miami boasts the third tallest skyline in the U.S., trailing only New York City and Chicago with over 300 high-rises.

Fueled by demand from wealthy South American buyers and the city’s emergence as a financial hub for Latin America, Miami has become the city for developers and architects to show off their latest designs and mega-projects.

At least 10 more projects have plans to be built in Miami over 800 feet, according to data from the Skyscraper Center. Here’s a look at the tallest towers proposed for the Magic City’s skyline.

At 80 floors and 1,120 feet, MiamiCentral I could be the tallest building in Miami for quite some time.

Florida East Coast Industries, the parent company of VirginTrains USA, plans to build the skyscraper next to its train station at Virgin MiamiCentral.

Skidmore, Owings & Merrill is designing the tower, which was first proposed in 2014. The initial plans called for a mix of residential, hotel and office space.

The 92-story, 1,049-foot tall building will also include over 1.4 million square feet of Class A office and hotel space.
