It is unreal! In one more year. Holy... all of those major towers wil be topped or close to it. Infinity Epic Marquis Everglades Paramount Bay ICON Avenue AXIS 900 Capital 500 and on and on. Next Sept they will all be topped off, and most of the rest will be underway, or 1/3 done it will be so frickin sick. I can't wait, and I can't wait to move!

WOW! What an absolutely STUNNING display! Some really sharp photography there, especially of Ten Museum Park! I especially like the first one, taken from the MacArthur Causeway as you are just leaving South Beach, where he caught the spread of the Miami skyline from the Santa Maria to Ten Museum Park. Quite impressive! I couldn't help but sit and imagine the spaces being filled in by what's already under construction like Infinity 1, Plaza on Brickell, ICON Brickell, Met 2, 50 Biscayne, Everglades on the Bay, 900 Biscayne, and the Marquis. Of course we have the two Quantum towers under construction north of the spread with Opera Tower before them about to top off. As well, we have 3 Riverfront towers currently under construction (Wind, Ivy, and Mint) with 3 more planned of nearly equal height. As discussed, there is a lot planned that will not be built, but the more powerful developers and architects will still want to make a statement regardless of all esle. Give it a good 5 years at least to see what else will be built.

Some nice renderings of the Flatiron because you can never see enough of those, plus some ground level shots:

Has there been in talk about Citiplace lately? Was it officially canceled or is it up for sale like so many other projects?

Two questions:

(1) Is Flatiron still alive ?

(2) Is SSC still alive ?

I think Flatiron is still alive. A couple of weeks back, it was featured in a Sunday Miami Herald article about "Starchitects." It was about developers commissioning star architects to design their buildings and make them sell.

FlatIron does have a big "For Sale" sign up. I don't think that means it's dead, yet. But it's not a good sign.

Great shots, but sad about the Capital project. I would LOVE to see those two towers anchoring the south end of the Miami skyline...

I went by the Capital site just last Saturday, and it was covered with construction materials, but no real construction. Not sure if that is the beginning of something or an abandonment. You can never really tell from the sales agents. Some will say anything to keep their project alive. I'm disappointed that Element and Onyx2 won't be anchoring the north end of the skyline.

I wouldn't despair on Capital. No one's said it's supposed to start immediately. I've heard 4th Qtr., or before end of year.

Sunday, I drove to Sunny Isles for the first time in a long time and was blown away by the approach from 163rd Street. It looked like something out of a sci-fi movie, a futuristic version of some part of New YorK. I can hardly wait to see what the approach to Miami from Key Biscayne and South Beach is going to look like in the next 5 years!

I remain optimistic about capital. For those of you that don't: http://www.multi-housingnews.com/mul..._id=1003054685 it seems that it will break ground before the end of the year. The article is recent and the source is credible.
