Bayside May Soon Host a Cutting-Edge Building
“Challenging, but not quite beating Brickell CityCentre’s planned supertall tower for supremacy, mega-mall developer Jeff Berkowitz has submitted plans to the City of Miami for an observation tower called “Skyrise Miami” according to exMiami. (no not this) that would be located on an existing pier behind the Hard Rock Cafe at Bayside Marketplace and would rise to 1,000 feet above sea level. (the FAA has already approved).
The swooping Arquitectonica-designed tower resembles a giant crowbar or the ‘R’ in ‘Rise’ and will include three observation decks with what seem to be uninterrupted views of Downtown, Brickell, and Miami Beach. The exposed structure gives the tower a rather industrial aesthetic which might read quite nicely against the Port of Miami backdrop. More importantly, the entire development would provide a terminus for the BayfrontPark boardwalk and encourage people to activate the entirety of the waterfront. Additional amenities include a restaurant, nightclub, private lounge, ballroom, movie theatre, and some amenities/amusement rides only known as “Skyplunge” and “Skyrise Drop.””
Doubtless, this unusual but thoroughly modern building will be receiving a lot of attention. Not only will it likely be one of the tallest structures in the city, but it may very well be among the tallest in the nation (second only to the Stratosphere in Las Vegas) and one of the tallest in the world. Plus, given its prominent bayfront location and unique design, it could arguably become an iconic part of Miami’s already famous skyline.
