Hint Of Activity This Month On The Skyrise Construction Permit

A construction permit was applied for earlier this year to build the Skyrise tower in downtown Miami. It then lay dormant, until this month.

Records show that someone requested to activate the permit on November 6.

Although the permit has been applied for, the actual plans for the building are still not in for review – so it remains a long way from approval.

Here’s a rundown of all the activity on the permit for this year.

On January 22, 2020, an application for a construction permit was submitted.

Then on January 27, an Arquitectonica employee filed to modify the permit and change the contractor. The new contractor is Brad Meltzer of Plaza Construction.

Sometime later in the year, the application may have expired.

On November 6, a request was made to reactivate the permit (but the actual plans still haven’t been submitted). That is the most recent activity that is visible.

The total usable area that is being built at Skyrise is listed at 115,780 square feet, with a $200m cost of construction. Here’s how it breaks down, according to the newly filed application:

  • Recreational – 85,790 square feet spread across 12 floors
  • General Commercial – 12,000 square feet on level 2
  • Juice Bar/Coffee Shop/Bakery/ Deli/Ice Cream Shop/Cigar Bar – 1,150 square feet
  • Restaurant – 4,000 square feet
  • Retail – 12,760 square feet

How can anyone not like this?!? It’s stunning and a beautiful tourist attraction. This will enrich Miami’s skyline and it will make it iconic. But what are they waiting for??? Build it already!

Hello. I seen pictures of some construction activity but why hasn’t anything been done. They probably have been permits filed. But why haven’t we heard about anything about this project ever cents. Just build for Pete’s sake.

Because there is no point of this project other than to erect a phallic skyscraper; pun intended. If this project had a huge ROI projected, it would have been vertical by now.

OK so someone tell them to get it done. I seen pictures of the foundation and everything. I’m sure permits were already filed. When is this thing supposed to be done? Why do they keep delaying the project? Why? Why? Construction was supposed to begin in 2015 and be completed in 2018. Look at One Bayfront Plaza. They should’ve started construction years ago and they said years later that they were going to break ground in 2019 with completion in 2021 or 2022. Here we are and all they are doing is sitting around eating trash. They just got FAA approval but no building permit pending.

I’ve Looked at this structure at least 100 times an still don’t understand why people hate it so much? It’s not like there are beautiful bulidings in Miami to look at that’s any better, maybe 2 or 3 but mostly white boxes with balconies! I guess I can understand if it was residential or an office building but It’s an entertainment venue. A place you can go and have a good time so it’s not going to look like the usual buildings we see around Miami. I for one don’t mind the design but for those who don’t like it I’m interested in knowing how you think it should look?

Agree. But why not have both? If we can’t have one, than at least the other. But, the Genting resorts casino should be built without question!

The only thing holding this project up is a clear path for Berkowitz to defraud taxpayers.

Berkowitz taught Trump a thing or two about conning. That dude knew how gullible a lot of people were in Miami and threw up some quirky looking tower and called it “Skyrise” and lames in MiamiDade fell for it.

You’re right, Berkowitz is “defrauding and laughing” at the taxpayers of MiamiDade.

When the Eiffel Tower was erected, everyone thought it was ugly and they even protested against it. They lacked vision and apparently so do you🤭

If you’re comparing that ugly Skyrise crap to the Eiffel tower, then you have very pitiful taste.

Again, you find it beautiful now but it was considered ugly at conception and for the first years it was erected.

Look, the Eiffel tower was constructed in the 1800’s.. this is year 2020. The Eiffel tower is not in Downtown Paris. Funny how you don’t compare this horribly designed Skyrise tower to Toronto’s CN tower?.. or Las Vegas’s Stratosphere tower?.. and many others.

I can compare it if you want and I think this is nicer and more unique.

It’s not what I want.. you’re the one who compared this ugly duckling to the Eiffel tower. The Eiffel tower, the CN tower, and the Stratosphere tower along with the Space Needle in Seattle, all are designed to appeal for the next hundred years and many more after that into the future. This funny designed thing will get Miami laughed at for decades and decades if built.. mark my word.

At least Skyrise doesn’t just look like a giant radio/tv antenna tower.
