Downtown Miami - View from Brickell Key - Met 1 [small building left center] - Wachovia Financial Center [right side of Met 1]
Met 1 is part of Metropolitan Miami, a complex of four skyscrapers in the central business district of Downtown Miami. Met 1 was finished in 2007.
Wachovia Financial Center has changed names three times since it was completed. From 1984-1992, it was Southeast Financial Center. From 1992-2003, it was First Union Financial Center. From 2003-present, it is Wachovia Financial Center.
When topped-off in August 1983, it was the tallest building south of New York City and east of the Mississippi River taking away the same title from the Westin Peachtree Plaza Hotel, in Atlanta, Georgia. It remained the tallest building in the southeastern U.S. until 1987, when it was surpassed by One Atlantic Center in Atlanta, and the tallest in Florida until October 1, 2003, when it was surpassed by the Four Seasons Hotel and Tower, also in Miami. It remains the tallest office tower in Florida and the second tallest building in Miami.
