With 100 gleaming towers in various stages of development, the Miami Downtown Development Authority launched on Tuesday an interactive 3D map of the downtown skyline that showcases the area’s present and future.

The map is intended to be a tool for investors to navigate the development hotspot and gain access to information on current structures, those still in the pipeline and even zoning regulations. It color codes buildings to reflect their construction status and additional details, such as who developed the structure and number of units, is a mere mouse-click away.

“More than anything, this puts critical information into the hands of those making real-time investment decisions and paints a powerful picture of how Miami’s skyline is literally being reimagined before our very eyes,” DDA executive director Alyce Robertson said in a statement.

“It is an exciting time to be in Miami and with this visual, we hope to also educate the public on how our city is coming out of the ground and joining the ranks of the world’s most dynamic global cities.”
