Thanks for the clarification! Can you say if they are still planning to build this skyscraper in Miami?

I wouldn't be able to say, but if the initial problem was the financial situation in the Eurozone, given that things have improved over the pond and that they are expecting to raise some funds through the IPO of Santander Consumer USA, they might just be able to start the construction. Let's cross our fingers.

Thanks! I thought it was encouraging when they asked for an extension on their 950 feet height approval for the building from the FAA. I think it is planned to be built at 840 feet with an option to go higher.

Here are a few more cranes that weren't in the previous photo because they are behind me in previous photo.

a few buildings taller than 200 meters being built in the area.
Grand Hyatt being 300m
ShangriLa 250 m

Construction update on some of the projects.
As you can see, the entire CBD is very busy with constructions.
2016 -17 will be a banner year for the skyline.

Mexico City is not doing bad at all. There are a rather acceptable number of vertical projects under construction, along with many others knocking the doors (these in addition to the many already in existence)

This rendering shows a completed Brickell CityCentre with what will probably be our first supertall - One Brickell CityCentre. Other tall buildings will also have been completed that are not depicted in this rendering.

That proposal will amp up the skyline considerably. In many ways it represents the missing piece of the puzzle. Miami needed a big office tower. A few would be even better. Skylines always seem to look more impressive with lots of office.
