New World Tower, originally known as 100 Biscayne Tower,[1] is a thirty-story skyscraper in the Central Business District of Greater Downtown Miami, Florida, United States. It is part of the Biscayne Wall, which is a series of buildings and parks stretching along the Biscayne Bay. New World Tower also owns an adjacent 12-story mechanical parking garage[2] that provides parking for its office tenants and its guests but also offers valet parking services for several nearby hotels and restaurants.

The tower is 357 feet (109 m) tall and contains commercial space at street level. Floors two to four of the building house a data center, miami-connect, and the remaining twenty-five floors contain office space. Formerly, the upper nine floors contained luxury apartments.

When completed in 1965, the building was acclaimed by its architect as "a very modern but conservative design which will wear exceptionally well throughout the years."[1] It was developed by Jose Ferré, the father of former city mayor, Maurice Ferre. It is owned by 100 NWT, L. L. C., an affiliate of Panther Capital Management, LLC and managed by Panther Management Services, LLC.
