SkyRise/Bayside Lease Negotiations Not Going Well



Quote:
Thank the Biscayne Bay gods, things are getting hairy with plans for the rather hideous SkyRise Miami. Lease negotiations for Bayside Marketplace/SkyRise Miami with the City of Miami aren't going well at all, according to exMiami which sources Al Crespo, the man behind the Crespogram Report. Apparently "if not for pressure to get a deal done for SkyRise, talks would probably have broken off by now", although it will probably still at least break ground so their Federal Aviation Approval remains valid.

The developers seem determined but having to rely on government support for anything in Florida has been the deathknell for many ideas...

Hmm... sounds like it could be resolved, hope so, at least it will break ground?

They'll likely break ground to keep their FAA permit active but they want a lot of money from the city, county and state and that's not boding well for this thing ever getting built.

So basically this isn't getting built, that kinda sucks but at least Miami has a lot of other cool projects.

Or won't it?

Construction Technically Begins At SkyRise Miami



Quote:
Construction has technically begun at SkyRise Miami and, more importantly, the Federal Aviation Administration has been thus notified of the beginning of construction, thereby preserving SkyRise's FAA approvals before they expired. Soon construction will stop again, now that this loophole has been successfully taken advantage of, while negotiations over SkyRise's very existence continue.

I like the way they're handling this. I started a new job today, but I may not go in tomorrow.

Only in the US do they start building a building they know won't be built.

Now they can also say, "but we already started building, let's get the damn thing done!". The Silverstein strategy.

Governor Vetoes $2 Million SkyRise Funding

This shouldn't be a dealbreaker since everyone knows the Governor is no friend of state subsidies but the developers now have a steeper slope...

New Bayside Deal Set For Vote Today, Paving Way For SkyRise

Quote:
Miami commissioners are expected to vote tomorrow on a new deal with the owner of Bayside Marketplace that could pave the way for the SkyRise tower to be built.

In exchange for allowing SkyRise on a surface parking lot, Bayside’s lease would be extended an additional 30 years until 2060. Bayside would only get a very superficial face lift, but a new 17,253 retail liner would be built along Biscayne Boulevard, on the west side side of the parking garage. The deal would be sent to a voter referendum.

SkyRise To House REALLY High Rollers?

Quote:
The always sleuthing Al Crespo notes some curious wording in the fine print of the sublease agreement between SkyRise Miami and Bayside Marketplace: "Landlord will entertain a proposal from Tenant to establish a private gaming club at the Demised Premises." Since Al also says that a statewide gambling bill will pass next year... could Miami be looking at its future, phallic-shaped casino in the sky?

Lease Agreement Reached: Skyrise Goes To Voters In August

Quote:
A lease agreement between the giant $400 million hairpin-shaped SkyRise Miami, Bayside Marketplace, and the City of Miami has been reached for SkyRise's construction and the expansion of Bayside. Now it goes to voters for approval this August.

Asking for public funding for a private gaming club? Do these people know how daft they sound. It's like they don't even want to win the referendum.
