From wirednewyork.com :
Bayfront Plaza redesign completes

Terra Architecture has announced the completion of its redesign of One Bayfront Plaza, a US1.8 billion dollars landmark project set to redefine the skyline of Miami. Terra Architecture initially won the competition to design what will be Miami’s tallest building in 2006 and has been developing the design of this mixed use project since. An extensive redesign of the project which began last Autumn has just completed with the project now composed of a single 1,010 ft tall iconic tower with unparalleled views of Biscayne Bay.

One Bayfront Plaza is located at the heart of Downtown Miami, encompassing 2 city blocks. The project totals approximately 4 million sq ft, with 1.3 million sq ft of signature Class A office space, an 850 room hotel, 150,000 sq ft of retail area and one of the highest observation decks in the country, all located in the mixed use, 80 storey tower. The project is being designed to achieve LEED Silver certification.

The 850 key, world class, full service hotel, will be supplemented by 120,000 sq ft of banquet and exhibition space to serve significant conventions and meetings as well as the needs of the office and retail components.

The retail component fills the first three floors and will create a parallel destination for the 12 million annual visitors to Bayside Marketplace as well as for the more than 4 million annual cruise ship passengers.

The development schedule remains on track for groundbreaking in 2011 and the completion of the project in 2015.

a few renders that came with the news:

The true CBD is the area north of the Miami River. Most of Q's recent shots are of the Brickell Area (south of the River). The Wachovia is north of the river and is visible in most of the shots but you have to go back to the older shots to find CBD pics.

Of course, I don't mind! Spread the word about the new Miami. It's not the Miami you knew before unless you were just here.

It sure looks like it as far as I can tell! And Empire World towers as featured in my avatar could become Trump Miami!

The CBD is to the right of the Miami River in this first photo where you see Met2 starting to rise.

Man hard to believe a city that is so close be so different from all the other cities in FL. I live only about 250 miles away from this city and have yet to visit it, I really gotta go down there one day. Nice pics!

Thanks! Don't feel bad though. I've only been to the west coast of Florida once in my entire life, yet I've visited San Francisco twice since I moved back from California 25 years ago. Would love to see Busch Gardens Tampa just for the tigers. Love big cats!
