A $68 million Miami penthouse could shatter Florida's real-estate record, but it's in a building that's vulnerable to sea-level rise.




The building, called Eighty Seven Park, is at risk of chronic flooding by 2030.




Though Miami sea levels are rising at faster rates than in other areas of the world, the city's developers continue to prioritize luxury waterfront properties.



No location is completely safe from climate change, but Miami's future looks particularly challenging.
The city's sea levels are rising at faster rates than in other areas of the world, already resulting in floods, contaminated drinking water, and major damage to homes and roads.
In an April statement to Business Insider, environmental author Jeff Goodell referred to Miami as "the poster child for a major city in big trouble."
