Brickell Heights are two twin towers currently under construction in the Brickell neighborhood of Miami, Florida. Together, the towers will have 690 units with a ground floor Equinox Gym. The towers broke ground in mid to late 2014 following the groundbreaking of SLS Brickell on South Miami Avenue.The project originally announced as The Premiere Towers during the 2000s building boom, but was cancelled due to financial reasons caused by the Great Recession. The project was re-announced by Related in October 2013 as Brickell Heights. A third similar tower known as SLS Lux is across Miami Avenue to the east. The site is located about one block north of the Tenth Street Metro Station. The project is directly adjacent on the east side of a 1980s office building known as the Brickell Bayview Center that is now nearly surrounded by high rises.

The complex, "Premiere Towers Brickell Village," was to be built in the heart of Brickell, at the corner of SW 9th Street and Miami Avenue. Each tower was to be 513 ft (156 m) tall with 49 floors. Construction was expected to begin before the end of 2007 and to be completed in 2009. The towers were to contain retail on floors 1-7 and residential units on floors 8-52.
