It's different from the other traditional towers, but I don't know if it turned out the good different.

When does it launch for the Centauri System?

Unusual, but interesting, especially given the location.

SkyRise Miami Site Work Could Begin In A Month



Quote:
In the "is that hideous thing really getting built?" news of the day, site prep work on the giant R-shaped SkyRise Miami could begin by June, before Federal Aviation Administration height approvals expire on June 12th. Commissioners will vote at a meeting later this week to decide whether or not to let the work begin even though the tower itself has to pass a voter referendum in August or November.

a voter referendum is just poor political leadership.

My understanding is that a referendum is required by law because it is being built on public lands.

They are asking for public funding, so a referendum and irritatingly long review process is needed.

Some people aren't ready for 21st century architecture but it's coming and this council must embrace & support this incredible tower, I mean 1000 footer! Wow. Landmark for sure.

I agree. Just my opinion but, I think it's ugly. Like a big "R". Miami deserves better.

When I first saw this building I was like, how hideous, why would someone propose somthing like this, but the more I look at it the better it looks. It is adjusting to my eyes and I think this building is magnificent. It could be really ugly in the final project but so far in the renders, it looks [email protected]

I don't think it's ugly, and I rather like it. I hope they can refine the design a bit. In any case once it is built it will be a new trophy for Miami.

The property sits on city owned land so voters need to decide whether the city should lease the property to the developer. I seriously doubt this will pass in a voter referendum. The American Airlines Arena where the Miami Heat play also sits on city owned property but they haven't paid the city any rent until this year even though the Heat has been using the Arena for the past 14 years.

The Miami Heat has not had to pay to use the $357 million-venue, which sits on $38 million of county land; the county has paid $64 million in operating subsidies and taxpayers are not happy about these kind of deals.

Also they need to come up with about $400 million dollars from "over seas" investors to build this monstrosity. I hope it never gets built.
