Foster + Partners has released plans for a connected pair of skyscrapers that will provide 660 new luxury condos in the Miami’s Brickell neighborhood. Taking advantage of updated height limit regulations, "The Towers" will top out at 1,049 feet (320 meters), becoming one of 5 new buildings that will share the title of Miami's tallest tower.

Historically, building heights in Miami have been restricted due to proximity to the Miami International Airport.

A majority of the required parking has been moved underground, opening up 56,800 square feet of public open space that will feature a “signature through-block arcade.”

"The design of these high-rise towers frees up space on the ground to create a pedestrian plaza, with shops, restaurants and art galleries that will serve the local community as well as the new residents in the tower," said Norman Foster.

"The base of the building continues the axis of Southeast 12th Terrace, drawing life back to the bay. It is a civic response to the city’s enlightened vision, and will make an important contribution to Miami’s public spaces."

The project joins a slew of new residential developments in Miami, which includes Foster + Partner’s own Faena House as well as buildings by BIG, Herzog & de Meuron, OMA, Arquitectonica and Zaha Hadid Architects.
