The sky is the limit will go from a cliche to a reality in 2018 with Skyrise Miami. Since ancient times civilizations and urban centers have had a fascination with having the tallest building as a testimony of their power. Call it an ego trip or a desire to rise from the mundane into the eternal, truth is “the tallest” keeps moving the bar higher and higher from the pyramids to today’s vertical cities, and even with full knowledge that someone will eventually build an even taller tower, developers are still enchanted by the dream of the tallest. Each city has an iconic tallest (for a while) tower that somehow captures its soul: New York has the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State meaning human values and business. Tokyo has the Mori building with arts and ultra upscale shopping, Berlin has the beer tower, Paris has the Eiffel Tower with a design that is controversial as the French. Miami’s “come play and be happy” spirit will be sealed with the tallest entertainment tower, Skyrise Miami.
Miami is the number one tourist destination in the world. 94 million visitors last year and 127 million expected by 2020 suggest that Skyrise Miami is the right choice for our very own iconic tower. Tourists estimated spending for 2015 is $100 billion, and we have $5 million cruise passengers. Miami’s population has increased 4,574% in the last century and we are definitely in the world’s map together with the big cities of the world. And since each of them has a big iconic tower, it is time for Miami to have its own. Skyrise Miami will be 1,000 ft high and have restaurants, retail, night club, a 500 seat ballroom, the longest and fastest drop in the world with 650 ft (not for the faint of heart), rock climbing and the most spectacular views among other attractions.
