Well, the question begging to be asked here, since no one is asking, is:
Does the redesign of "an old proposal" mean that the project is now definitely going forward?

well it seems like it, the first design was done by an architect who didn't even own the land, about a year ago some developers paid about 30million for the piece of land, and now have redesigned it are going through the approval process, they also have 3 other projects in miami, so they same "serious' about it.

The floorplates of this tower must be very small.
The outside has a nice slender design btw

Thanks Mad Hatter. This design is fabulous. I really like it. One of those projects that immediately strike you as special. Hopefully the award by SLATE will help it sail through approval without modification or shrinkage. I'll be following this one.

One of the best building proposed in the world, bar none.The sleek design with the white exterior makes it look so graceful in the skyline. I'm glad to see this proposal moving ahead, I was wondering what happened to it.

For those of you not familiar with the project, the plan has the metromover running through the center of the building and a metromover stop on the east side of the building.

Somebody NEEDS to make sure they light this beaut up like the BofA. It would be stunning if it had a kick ass light scheme in the night sky; and to top everything off; it has no BALCONYS! The day has come, Miamians. A really big thing without balconys!

It has to have balconies. It wouldn't suprise me if thats what those white stripes are. The upper floors are residential condos (554 of them to be exact). Condos in Miami always have balconies, this would be the first (modern) condo in Miami with no balconies which wouldn't be good for sales though I agree it would look much nicer without them.

oh, my hopes were shattered. lol. maybe in a few years we can get SOMETHING without them. I believe, correct me if I am wrong, even the Wachovia F.C. has mini balconies on the set back blocks on the top.

Oh well, we will live. This building is still amazing.
