OBP goes before the Miami City Commission for final approval on the 26th.

-Some added updates: the shorter tower (hotel) is to be 70-stories and 824 feet tall and the taller tower is to have an observation deck (a first for Miami) 997 feet up.

-Details: The shorter tower is to contain 850 hotel rooms and 120k square feet of banquet/exibition space. In total the towers are to have 112k square feet of retail space and on the ground floors and 2563 parking spaces and the taller tower is to have 2.2 million square feet of office space

This building will make miami identifiable when looking at pictures of the down town, it will certainly be iconic. I'm excited to come to miami one day to see it.

Miami needs this tower. It's skyline is extremely lacking in terms of bold designs.

Drop dead gorgeous

The complexity of design is tempered by the simplicity of the overall concept. This will be a lovely - yes, gorgeous - skyscraper. The presence of differant surface textures and the contrasting "facade" and "back" of the building is a refreshing rebuke to austere shapes that make so many of the recent skyscrapers banal. This will be the crown jewel of Miami's impressive skyline; a well deserved trophy to a fantastically beautiful city and one of the liveliest and most glamorous places in the world.

It's definately a unique enough design to be Miami's signature tower. From the "backside" it almost looks like 2 towers. An excellent design though.

BUILD IT!!!

OBP

The Plaza consists of two towers. The taller 1000+ foot all office tower and a second 800+ foot Hotel Tower.

FYI: [The Building on the far right has been demolished in the place for 50 Biscayne-- A God Awful, uninspiring, piece of crap in a photogenic location!! ]

Wow! Thanks! I don't think any of us from Miami could have said that any better. The tower has been approved by the city. I think we will see it. Interest in developing Miami is so intense right now that if one developer doesn't build it another will. We are second only to Dubai in new construction right now. We have more skyscrapers topping out right now at one time than I ever thought possible! The impressive spread along the waterfront is already starting to remind me of Chicago! The "condo boom" is over here, but we still have projects moving forward as mixed-used. We are going to have continued new construction on into the next decade! There is no real end to this as of yet. I can hardly wait to see what it is all going to look like after One Bayfront Plaza is completed.

I hope they build it, it would be the perfect building to show everybody how much miami has been growing, and would be the perfect addition for the city's growing skyline.
