It sure has been a while since inception hence the doubt with some, but given the tourism numbers, if they build it, people will come. They just have to market the crap out of it. A good marketing campaign can do wonders. Aesthetically, its not bad. I mean, there are worse things, and might be a case of it will look better than what the renderings depict. Renderings give an illustration, but are devoid of the emotional aspect with regards to seeing a tower or structure in person. I think people will like it once built.

Also, it's different, unique. Nothing else like it in the U.S..

Deal With Army Corps Of Engineers Could Pave The Way For Skyrise

Quote:
Miami commissioners are set to vote on a deal with the U.S. Government that could allow for road access to the Skyrise project.

Currently, a parcel of land owned by The U.S. Army Corps Of Engineers at Bayfront Park is leased to the city, in order to be used as a public park.

Now, The Army Corps Of Engineers has agreed to an easement agreement that will allow for vehicular and pedestrian access on the land, instead of park use.

The deal appears to have been in the works since at least 2014.


Legal sketches attached to the contract list the property name as “A Parcel at Skyrise Miami,” and a checklist was signed by J. Frederic Blitstein, who has been a consultant for Skyrise.

Miami commissioners will vote on the agreement December 14.

It would kinda suck just from a principal idea that this would reach the monumental moment of being the 1st super tall to have a shovel in the ground. I'd rather have 300 Biscayne take that leap in history.

Hello everyone. On their page, Skyrise has pictures of this being built. They claim they have started construction. Is it safe to change the status on the Miami digrams to " under construction "

Hasn't started yet. I know what your talking about, but those are older shots. Vertical construction hasn't started.

Has this project died, or is it still alive ? I just found this article that gives me a little hope that it will proceed.

Site Work Is Now Underway At The Skyrise Miami Site, Where 1,049-Foot Tower Planned





Quote:
Heavy machinery moved onto the Skyrise Miami entertainment tower this week, marking the start of site work and eventual construction.

A surface parking lot that was operating at the site is now permanently closed, according to Bayside employees. Demolition is underway.

Records show the following construction permits now active at the site:

Phased foundation permit, filed and approved in March 2017
Seawall permit, filed in May 2018 and approved in June. Construction cost estimated at $60,000.

Temporary trailer construction permit, filed in January 2018 and approved in July. Construction cost estimated at $500,000 with 2,400 square feet of space.

Total demolition, filed in May 2017 and approved in January 2018. Cost listed at $3.9 million, with JWR Construction listed as contractor.
Skyrise will cost at least $430 million to develop. It will rise 1,049 feet above sea level, 1,045 feet above ground.

So happy that site work has begun, I was starting to lose all hope of it being built.

Skyrise Schedules November Press Conference As Excavation Gets Underway



Quote:
A press conference has been scheduled for November to provide an update on the Skyrise project, according to Miami Today.

Earlier this month, the first activity in years was observed at the Skyrise site when a surface parking lot was closed to make way for construction.

Engineers are now excavating the site, Miami Today wrote.

“There’s a lot of activity” now at the Skyrise site, Bayside Marketplace senior general manager Pamela Weller told the paper. “We’re excited about it.”

Skyrise is approved at 1,049 feet above sea level – the maximum permitted by FAA rules in Miami.

I think four years under construction is a mistake. I think completion of this tower by 2021 is more realistic.

Hasn't this thing been "about to start construction" for like 5 years?

Exciting nonetheless

Looks like it just got a little closer.


============================


Skyrise Construction Start Set For First Quarter Of 2019 After Contractor Selected

Quote:
Construction at Skyrise Miami will begin in the first quarter of 2019, according to the contractor.

Brad Meltzer, the CEO of Plaza Construction told Building Design + Construction that his firm was recently selected to build the tower. Excavation at the site began last month.

Skyrise will become the tallest building in Florida. It is approved by the FAA at 1,045 feet above ground and 1,049 feet above sea level.

Legends, a joint venture between the Dallas Cowboys and New York Yankees, will operate the tower when completed. Completion is scheduled for 2023.

Attractions in the vertical entertainment complex will include on open deck called Skywalk 908 feet above ground, a transparent sky deck at 866 feet called Skyledge, and a transparent Skyglide. There will also be base jumping, a float tunnel that allows visitors to rise to the top of the tower, a 540 foot free-fall Skydrop, and the world’s tallest rotating observation wheel.

Restaurants, nightclubs and catering halls are also being built in the tower.

Planning for construction is made more complicated by the fact that there are no uses in the first 500 feet of the tower, Meltzer said. That will require a structural steel and concrete design that hasn’t been tried before in the area.

Arquitectonica is the architect. This will be the eight project that Plaza and Arquitectonica have worked on together (including the recently completed Paraiso Bay).

Berkowitz Development Group is the developer. The company has developed over 1.5 sf of office and retail.
