By this time the FAA could have lifted the maximum height farther. There has also been some speculation that Tibor Hollo, in his old age, might not live to see this project started but another forum member pointed out that his company will probably continue to build it without him.

Thats Good News! Miami is really a good place for investments. Its the nearest American city to the Caribbean region, a near perfect place for summer and winter vacation, the nightlife is the best in the world and some experts mentioned that if Cuba opened itself to the world (once Castro died), then Miami will be its gateway to America due to Cuban population in the area and of course, its the nearest American city.

The FAA/Miami-Dade County/City of Miami brokered height limit increase for the area was already passed by the Miami-Dade County Commission and will be heard by the City of Miami Commission next Thursday. We'll see. But it looks like it may only be allowed up to about 1010 feet rather than 1180. They may allow it to squeeze in at 1049'.

Awesome! I love the way it looks, and really interesting that sort of "bullet" at the main entrance.

Somewhat it's great, but I think the shape is too complicated, if it's viewed from some side.

I currently own a condo a block from this proposed building. I certainly hope it get's built. The neighborhood is changing for the better. Most of Miami's construction has been on Brickell Avenue.

From the renders we have seen, it really is unique with interesting forms.

This is one tower they just cannot get wrong. I'm sure the cladding will be superb.

Whoa. The backside of this thing is really, really bad. It looks like two or three guys had a late-night charrette after too many mojitos.

"Hey let's add a partial trellis fragment!"

"Cool! Okay, how about a random checkerboard too?"

"Sure! But let's top it off with a sail figure!"

"Yeah! And carve the top into three pieces!"

"Love it! Let's add random horizontals for a few floors!"

"OK! And some vertical fins at the base!"

"Bingo! Let's put in some faux-80's L-shape layering!"

"Love it! Now let's put some finely-divided green glass here, just because!"

"Wild!"

"Crazy!"

"Love it!!!"



Oh. My. God.

Definetly not iconic. I hope they change the design. The height is good!
