Giant ‘R-Shaped’ Observation Tower Plans Submitted to the City of Miami

The new observation tower will be called Skyrise Miami and is slated to begin construction in 2014 on what is currently a surface parking lot behind Bayside Marketplace.

“Skyrise Miami” 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 imporantly, the entire development would provide a terminus for the Bayfront Park boardwalk and encourage people to activate the entirety of the waterfront. Additional amenities include a restaurant, nightclub, private lounge, ballroom, movie theatre, and some vague amenities/amusement rides only known as “Skyplunge” and “Skyrise Drop.””
