I decided to revive this thread to get some buzz going on... what do you guys think of One Bayfront Plaza? I mean, it's approved, it's an office/hotel tower, and it's in a prime spot of downtown Miami.

Do you guys have any grumbles about the design? How do those of you from other parts of the world think it will affect your opinion of Miami (if it has any affect at all)?

Here's a photo of it in the skyline posted a few pages back (courtesy of Vision). It's the tallest one in the center of the pic.

Drop dead gorgeous

In my view this is one of the finest skyscraper designs in the world. I so hope it gets built!

A discussion on this tower is probably a waster of time given that the value of similar properties has dropped 25% in the last two years.

???

You are aware this is an office building right?

Office buildings in Miami are renting and selling at all all time high and break rental asking price records for the area on a weekly basis. The only real market force pushing against this being built is that 4 other large office towers have beat it to the punch and are already under construction downtown. The question is will there still be crazy demand once those towers are finished.

Not sure if building or developing any major project anymore in Miami is such a great idea



Even though it isn;t guaranteed to happen, hope it doesn't

Man, you post and say the stupidest shit, (the Chicago Spire is "... A dick that looks like it is twisted") and now this "possible scenario of Florida underwater picture" a.k.a. Algore global warming propoganda that has nothing to do with this topic of a supertall. Get a grip, layoff the kool-aid and contribute something worthwhile for once, I'm not the only one bothered/interrupted by your high posting/spam ratio.

True, if Miami goes, so does Manhattan, maybe they should stop developing there too?

Yeah a guy that lives in the mountains?? 'Tuolumne City' the elevation of 2500 feet will bag on sea level elevation cities. I know where I live I would get underwater soon. IMHO global warming is mostly hogwash.

This is a really great looking tower, one of my top favorite new skyscrapers in the US together with Chicago Spire...they really have the different setbacks a to build it!
The facade is very interesting and unconventional with the setbacks and the rounded side...looks really beautiful, it definitively would be a new landmark for Miami, and a great addition to all skylines worldwide!
btw what happened to the Empire World Towers..is there still a chance that they'll get built or are they cancelled already..
p.s the render of Miami's skyline is really great..if all those new towers will get build (20 over 200m according to SSP: http://skyscraperpage.com/diagrams/?searchID=37912931) then Miami will have the 3rd best skyline in the US after Chicago and NYC IMO...
