It's strange; Miami has such a ho-hum skyline. Nothing particularly definitive about it. No tall building punctuates the skyline. No iconic gem grabs your attention. And still, whenever I see it I recognize it instantly.

I'm not saying that Miami has no tall buildings or nice architecture. Just saying that it's not like New York with the ESB or Frisco with the TransAmerica building. Kind of more like Vancouver with an endless sea of non-descript apartment towers.

That’s because Miami is mostly residential towers and not corporate HQs. Even speculative office space tends to be kind of blah.
