When it comes to hate on this website, it helps to understand it when you take into account where the haters are located and what's going on there. It was kind of a rude awakening for me to realize that many people on this website are not like me and Desertpunk, who are happy for any skyscraper development going on anywhere in North America.

Sunny Isles Beach has the second largest skyline in Florida and is in the same county with Miami. It also has the second largest beachfront skyline in the world after Australia's Gold Coast. I'm sorry it can't be as tall as Australia's Gold Coast, but there are height restrictions due to the proximity of Opa-Locka Airport just as the Miami skyline has been hendered by the proximity of MIA. We have 3 towers in Sunny Isles Beach that will be over 600 feet tall that are currently under construction. It will be larger than many other U.S. skylines and is already really in spite of having to compete with Miami. Meantime, Miami is going to put a lock on 3rd in the nation behind New York and Chicago. I have no doubt many skyscraper enthusiasts are jealous of all this.

Btw, apart from my aerials, this is my favorite update of the project.

It was one of the first tall buildings built on Sunny Isles Beach. At 476 feet, it was the tallest for quite a while. It's called the Pinnacle. I would have liked it better 100 feet taller.

It looks like there is no more space left to build any more tower there.
