Whadda you mean "for once"???? Miami has a great skyline. One of the best in the country (#3 according to Wikipedia). Better than Dallas I assure you!

The render looks nice but I'm not sure it really fits the Miami skyline

A few months ago, Cohen began looking for buyers for the 2.66-acre site at 330 Biscayne Blvd. He bought the property in May 2005 for $31.75 million, or $270 per square foot.
LoopNet, an online listing service for commercial real estate, advertises the site, including the project’s design plans and in-process permits. Lea Cohen, sister of Leon Cohen, said the family is asking $80 million for the package.
The developer is just a flipper, looking to nearly triple his money and get out.
This is just a fantasy at this point.

They pretty much ripped off NYC for the name! Hahaha.

Empire State Building, World Trade Center Twin Towers.

Love this project!

Nice height, but looks bland if not uninspiring.

Buildings this large can be bland and get away with it. They impress with their size, the force of their presence. Buildings like this don't need to be ornamented like Christmas Trees.

If it's built it will grow into the skyline, the way the twin towers in NYC did. This proposal is so huge - if it's built it will be impossible to imagine the Miami skyline without it. (not that it will actually be built)

Great design!

This is awsome and this could be the best thing that happens to Miami development.I hope this is built but the bridges I am not so sure about...it makes it a little odd unless you keep the bridges for like evacuation routes if there is a fire.And the round shape of it is an awsome design that can reduce the risk of windows breaking during hurricanes.But can the bridges withstand the winds when the 2 buildings are swaying that can possibly damage the bridges between?

I don't want to hurt anybody feelings, but I think this will soon become a stale proposal. I want to see it built, but I just don't think it will happen.
