And here's the results. It appears the new design isn't finalized so there may be more articulation to come:

Anyway, I did call as I said I would. They don't know what the building is going to look like. Plans haven't been finalized yet. Give them another 60-90 days I was told. Apparently, the rendering was just something preliminary for a press release. I spoke to the marketing director who seemed pretty excited about the project going forward since two years ago, he told me it wasn't even in the plans and that there wasn't even any money to do anything. He said he even had the architect standing in front of him. I then asked to speak to the architect, and the marketing director told me he wouldn't have any more to offer since nothing was final yet.

...

We'll just wait and see what FECR comes out with in the next few months.

Nice design. Would this be Miami's tallest?

Yes, and at 1,010 ft it would reach Miami's height maximum.

Although I do like the design, does anyone else think that a more slender design would look better ?

I like it, but it could have been better.

The massive one appeals to me more, has a sense of grandness to it

Yes that is the height limit in downtown Miami since the International Airport lies 5 miles/8 km. due west and the runways take aircrafts directly over the center of the city. The Federal Aviation Administration has to approve of anything higher than 1,010 feet. This tower was suppossed to be 1,049 feet which would have made it the tallest skyscraper in the entire southern US but was cut back.
