The Tallest Building in the World!

A new 975 meter high super tower planned for Miami could potentially beat out Dubai’s Burj Khalifa as the world’s tallest building if built. Designed by KOBI KARP, Miapolis would be more than just be a building – it would be a “city within a city.” With plans to utilize the most cutting-edge sustainable systems and practices drafted into the design, this dizzying arcology would be the largest LEED-certified structure at any rating level in the United States.


The staggering 160-floor eco-city would contain a bevy of entertainment and residential spaces within including an amusement park, observatory, restaurants, approximately 2 million sq ft of shops, more than 1000 apartments, 1 million sq ft of office space and a 792 room hotel.

In addition to LEED certification, Miapolis’ eco-factors include the use of 60% wind energy, a modular green roof, greenhouse gas management, and water desalinization. Other green features would include storm and wastewater management, solid waste management, electric trolleys, carbon emissions offsets, and carbon sequestration.
