Skyrise Among Projects Requesting Delayed Permit Expiration Due To Zika

SkyRise has notified the city of Miami that it will be exercising an extension on their warrant approval due to the Zika emergency and Hurricane Matthew.

According to a letter from the developer’s lawyer, Florida governor Rick Scott declared a Zika state of emergency that lasted for 235 days. During the same time, the state declared another state of emergency for Hurricane Matthew (which never actually made landfall in Florida), entitling the developer to an additional six month tolling period.

State law gives developers extensions on their permits in case of a state of emergency. The developer informed the city that their warrant permit now expires on May 3, 2019, instead of the original expiration date of September 10, 2017.

SkyRise is not the only permit that may be extended due to the Zika state of emergency. Representatives of several other projects have also visited the city to inquire about or file for an extension. They include:

  • Related Group’s One Brickell at 444 Brickell Avenue
  • Related’s 1400 Biscayne (Auberge)
  • Related’s W House Micro Condos at 2828 NW 1st Avenue in Wynwood
  • Triptych
  • Missoni Baia

This extension request probably says a lot of the financial state of the project … not exactly in the best place. Where are the cranes?

I did not know that Skyrise was infected with Zika. It resembles a venereal disease more likely.

What’s wrong with a phallic looking building? It’s not an office building or a condo. It’s an entertainment structure…
It will be iconic to our skyline.

I’m always led to wonder about people who see vertical structures and immediately think of penises.

Now we only need Architechtonica to come with a design of a building in the shape of 2 round structures to match this one!!

Drain the port of Miami a little big deeper and we will have a vagina to match this phallic monstrosity

Elected officials have been waiting 16 years for the fake developers who won the Watson Island land to put a shovel in the ground. SkyRise? Another loser.

If we give them a 2019 extension I’ll bet it’s going to be like the Flagstone development on Watson Island. There will be plenty of excuses for additional delays. Start build it now or scrap it. I’d favor the second option.

This project will be the catalyst to radically transform downtown Miami, its skyline, vibe and appeal as a hot tourist destination. Not to mention the ramifications it will bring to museums, parks and attractions nearby

Omg a Dreamer !!! How sweet and nice

Reality check …

The catalyst to improve the core of downton that already is happening IS:

1- more safety on the area for tourist and locals

2-thriving business and private enterprise

3- affordability of house for middle upper class to use the enterprise and entertainment

4- better school system that attracts people to live and use the Downton core facilities

5- less homeless peeing on the streets

6- affordable parking garages to the people that come to the museums and other venues

7- more trees, palms are pretty but don’t provide shadows when is 97 degrees outside!!!
