Opened on Christmas Day, 1939, THE ALFRED I. DUPONT BUILDING was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1989, designated an Historic Landmark in 1992 and became a Dade Heritage Trust Inductee in 1999.
Dubbed the "USS Neversink" during World War II, when it served as Fleet Headquarters for the 7th Naval Command, the iconic tower was the first skyscraper constructed in Miami after the completion of the Dade County Courthouse in 1928, signaling the city's economic recovery from the Great Depression. The immaculately detailed interior decoration of the
Depression Moderne-style building features hand-wrought iron, bas-relief elevator doors and hand-painted ceilings featuring the history of South Florida, Seminole Indian motifs and local flora and fauna.
