Met 3 is part of Metropolitan Miami, a complex of four skyscrapers in the central business district of Downtown Miami, Florida, United States. Met 3, the tallest of the four towers, was originally under construction and planned for completion in 2011. However, the project was put on hold. By 2011 construction had never gotten past site preparation.
At 828 feet, Met 3, when completed, would be the 2nd-tallest building in Miami at 828 ft (252 m), behind the 903-foot (275 m) Brickell Financial Centre Phase II, which is approved for construction. Met 3 will contain 76 floors, which will make it the tallest building in the United States south of New York City in terms of floor count. In total height, it will also be the tallest residential building south of New York, consisting of residential condominium units, as it will pass the Four Seasons Hotel Miami, which holds that distinction currently.
The Metropolitan Miami project gained attention due to NBA star Shaquille O'Neal's involvement in the project. He formed the O'Neal Group, a building-development company. The Metropolitan Miami project is the group's first.
In 2008 supermarket chain Whole Foods joined the lease for a location on the ground level of Met 3. The bottom of Met 3, including Whole Foods, and the separate Met Square shopping center, are set to begin construction in the summer of 2011. The Met 3 base is supposed to be built such that the Met 3 tower could later be built on top.
