The Four Seasons Hotel and Tower, also known as the Four Seasons Hotel Miami or simply the Four Seasons Tower, is a skyscraper in the City of Miami, Florida, United States. It is located in Downtown Miami's Brickell Financial District. The tower contains a Four Seasons Hotel, office space and several residential condominium units on the upper floors. Rising 789 feet (240 m) and 64 floors, it is the tallest building in Miami[1] and the state of Florida.[2][3] At the time of its completion, the Four Seasons Hotel & Tower was also the tallest mixed use building in the U.S. south of New York City.[4]

The building was planned by Gary Edward Handel & Associates. Post-tensioning reinforcement of the structure was supplied and engineered by Suncoast Post-Tension. The building was constructed with dense steel reinforcing and silica-fume concrete, and is designed to sustain hurricane-force winds.[3] Construction began in 2000,[4] and the building was completed in 2003.[1]
