LOL this diagram is way off. The bad thing about this building is that it's ugly, but the good thing is that it is still one of the best looking observation towers in the world cause most observation towers are grotesqely hideous, so it's kinda a best of the worst situation, LOL

observation towers are beautiful, just do not look at them as buildings, but more like structures, because they aren't highrises and instead more icons for a city instead of a building. canton tower is a prime example of how beautiful obseervation towers can look.

Kanton Tower (I just had to ) is one of the better observation towers. Sadly, most towers are Zeta Reticuli Towers which are essentialy a flying saucer on a pedestal with an antenna on top of it and I truly hate excessive round shapes and tops being wider than bottoms.

Berkowitz: SkyRise Miami To Break Ground In May



Quote:
SkyRise Miami will begin site work in just two months and break ground in May, according to developer Jeff Berkowitz.

The 1,000 foot observation tower has received zoning approval, but the city commission still needs to sign off on certain elements of the plan, Berkowitz said.

Berkowitz is planning to sublease about 2 acres from Bayside Marketplace, but that deal has not been completed yet.

The developer is hoping to raise nearly $270 million of the estimated $430 million in construction costs through the EB-5 investor program.

This won't be considered a building will it? Or just a tower?

Not counting a few ridiculous proposals that will never get built, this is probably the only "design" in the entire supertalls section I truly hate. There are a few I am not enthusiastic about but don't consider offensive, but this one here is just awful beyond description. Let's hope there are some last minute adjustments to it in an effort to salvage it.

First thing: Get rid of those "shoelaces" in the bottom two-thirds, you're designing a tower, not a boot.

^LOL So right. I can't believe so many like this thing as is.

Well they say, if the shoe fits...but it doesn't look to fit Miami at all. If they like it down there then who am I to say, I guess? But Miami's skyline has such good texture, color. This just seems to mess it up. Extremely eclectic at best.

I rather like it. It's tons more poetic than the chunky, concrete-y CN Tower and the kitschy, dated Sydney Tower.

This is something I never thought would happen. I am seriously excited to see this thing happen. I drive the MacArthur everyday and can't wait to watch this thing go up!

It's a great design in my opinion, it definitely stands out from all the repetitive condos.

I will believe it when I see it. I still am not convinced this will be built.
As far as the design, it is interesting, but would be a lot better as a skyscraper rather than an observation tower.
I'm all for an over-the top, extravagant, even bizarre design, but this just feels frivolous as an observation tower.
