Hines Once Dominated the Miami Skyline

Houston-based Hines has developed world class projects in twelve countries and four continents. The firm’s project portfolio boggles the mind in its use and design versatility. For 19 years two buildings dominated the Miami skyline. Both were built by Hines:

  1. The Wachovia Tower (764 ft. in height), formerly the Southeast Bank Center and the First Union building.
  2. The Bank of America Tower (625 ft. in height), formerly the Centrust tower.

These two buildings were the lone icons in the Miami skyline for so long that it seemed that no others would ever eclipse them. In 2003, NY-based Millenium Partners MDA, finally did it with the Four Seasons Brickell.

Hines has built other less notable developments locally and has decreased Miami development activity. Still, the Wachovia and BOA Towers stand as leviathans in the skyline. They remain the most photographed buildings in Downtown. The Wachovia and BOA towers are synonymous with Miami, and ironically, the city owes a Houston-based firm for that.

Here is a directory of Hines developments all over the world

  1. Hey there just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few
    of the images aren’t loading correctly. I’m not
    sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two
    different web browsers and both show the same results.
