4 Skyscraper with Humble Church in Miami, Florida

Architecture mirrors a city’s character. This photo portrays Miami’s contrasts. In the background is the Four Seasons Hotel and Tower. This was the tallest skyscraper in Florida from 2003 until 2017. Inside the soaring 789 feet of glass are a hotel, commercial space and condos. In the foreground is the St. Jude Melkite Church. The façade of Indiana Bedford limestone was built in 1946. The church’s humble appearance is treasured by the Melkite Greek Catholic congregation. Interestingly, Madonna’s daughter was baptized here in 1997.
