That is true, if we are counting roofs instead of spires, but One Bayfront Plaza has its spire included in its 1,180 feet height specification as does B of A in Atlanta at 1,023 feet. The spires are how the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur supposedly beat out the Sears Tower in Chicago as world's tallest building when they were completed.

Miami has never had a tall building, our cities like New York are chasing us out, we demand that we need a tall building.

Even though it's the same rendering, it gives a better impression of the huge size of the tower.
It looks bigger than Gold Coast's Q1.

You do realize that both las vegas, and SF have supertalls in the works, right?

I think in the coming years, there will be many cities trying to built >1000 ft highrises. There is no doubt that it adds major exclamation points to the skyline.

Miami has a great growing skyline with respectable ht. I think a new supertall would be great, and thank god this one has girth! I know tall and thin is in, but a girthy giant would be good for the miami skyline to break up the monotony of mostly thin residential buildings.

Cool-looking design. Have they signed an anchor tenant? That seems to be the first key step in getting an office building built, aside from getting the necessary zoning permits (which sound like they might be difficult in Miami)

Flat Roofs

Miami must have flat roofs on the towers because of aviation laws in south florida. I don't know why, but there must be an area covering at least 300 square feet at the top of any structure built above 300 feet high that is not a radio tower or antenna of some type. NewAtlantisMiami, please be careful that was not prudent. Marcus Aurelius is now dead. Shalom. Boohiggy. Crack smoking whores. Commodus is not a moral man.

TP for my bunghole?

Don't think this is true. Look at Capital One and Two....

Capital One and Two

I am looking at the plans for both right now. Both have flat roofs. There are two antennas and a spire on them also, but they still have a flat roof, and no pinnacle like the rendering of the aforementioned pipe dream in this thread. Over the years there have been THOUSANDS of proposals to the COM and I myself (before I was shit canned from that dept) oversaw many of them. Many do not even make it to the board room for a thought. Do you realize how many dreamers there are posing as contractors in the COM?

Shalom,

Bruce

update
this was posted by dave8721 on SSC :

One Bayfront Plaza is going to go before the Planning Board on May 16th. Here are the stats:

70-stories, 1049 feet tall, 850 hotel rooms, a whopping 2,124,000 sqft of office space, 120,000 sqft of "exibition/banquet" area, 112,000 sqft of retail space and 2560 parking spaces. It is expected to cost Tibor Hollo $1.3 Billion to build it.

On the FAA issue the City states that the building does not comply with the MD Aviation Dept height ordinance. It states the current height allowed by the MDAD is only 949 feet at that location, and that the County would need to pass an ordinance to allow taller buildings. Here is the quote (from page 32 of the doc below):

Quote:
"The project as presented exceeds the current maximum allowed height of the Miami-Dade Aviation Dept of 949 feet AMSL. If prior to the issuance of the buiding permit for One Bayfront Plaza, Miami-Dade Couty adopts a new ordinance that allows for greater height (1,049 feet AMSL) then this project may be built to the highest approved height by said Ordinance"

^ greggy according to dave8721 the City of Miami approved the project on Wednesday with conditions. The next hurdle would appear to be with the Miami Dade Aviation Dept. & the FAA on the height of the project.

In case you didn't notice Miami is in the US so we have to actually pay people union wages to build unlike the Burj which practically is using slave labor to construct that project.

The burj dubai concrete structure is costing 800 million or so. Then you have to add all the cladding, machinery such as elevators, etc, interiors, etc

500 is rediculous. How could that number possibly work? The most recent estimated cost has the building at around 2 bil. U.S.
