Berkowitz: Funding For Skyrise Within Months, Foundation Work In Fall

Skyrise will have a financing deal within months, and start foundation work in fall, developer Jeff Berkowitz told the Herald.

The city has agreed to push off the first rent payments one year, from fall of 2018 to 2019. Berkowitz requested the delay citing a lawsuit over a $9 million county subsidy for the project.

It isn’t clear if Berkowitz is still pursuing EB-5 financing.

Love the new renderings, three levels for the lounge and restaurant on the top floors. Reminiscent of the old Windows of the World in NYC and the Skydome in Washington DC. Build it!

Great news for Bayside and downtown Miami. When completed, Skyrise will become a tourist magnet.

the site is perfect for an observation tower. however they can sugarcoat the look of this thing all they want by putting sunsets on the background and cool lighting in their renderings. The point is this thing is poorly designed, no designer or architect will tell you otherwise. The design needs to be revised, because this will be there for at least the next 50 years. this thing will be a landmark for miami and its an eyesore.

They said the same thing of the statute of liberty and the Eiffel tower. Yet, visited by millions through out the year.

I’ve seen far too​ many people hate something, yet they still go and use it.

They never said those things about the Statue of Liberty or the Eiffel Tower. The design is ok but not legendary. Makes since for Miami.

Yes they did, you fool. The Eiffel Tower was *hated* by Parisians.
