1,000 Foot Bay Front Tower in Miami Proposed

In late November, a Miami developer announced his plans for an observation and amusement tower on the Miami bay front. The tower, referred to as the SkyRise Miami tower, would be 1,000 feet tall and include dining, observation decks, a ballroom and an assortment of amusement attractions. The building is designed as two structures attached at the top through a curve giving it a hairpin-like appearance. This unique design, which is open in the middle, allows the structure to withstand hurricane force wind.
