Skyrise Modifies Lease Agreement With Bayside As Site Work Continues

Site work is continuing at the Skyrise Miami site, as the developer prepares for vertical construction.

On December 17, lawyers for Bayside Marketplace filed a modified lease in county records for the land that will be used to construct the new tower, including the addition of an access parcel for utility and drainage facilities.

In November, Beijing-based China State Construction Engineering Corporation announced to shareholders that it had been awarded the contract to build Skyrise Miami, with a valuation of $540 million. The company’s Plaza Construction subsidiary will oversee construction in Miami.

Construction of the foundation is set to begin in the second quarter of 2019, according to the release.

I’m sorry but this architecture looks so industrial that it seems like it would look better on the other side of port of Miami. Looks like some sort of crane from the future or something.

That’s why I like it! It will become the symbol of Miami, wether you like it or not!

It is ugly and serves no purpose.

Can we please swap this design for the London Tulip by Foster?

…or Foster’s sad Villa Magna proposal for two towers in the style of the London Tulip.

Hopefully this speeds up Bayside getting updated – talk about stuck in the 80’s…

I agree with you, but I liked Bayside as a kid in the 80’s lol. The party boat with the fam while sipping on virgen pina coladas.

Hey millennial- What’s wrong with the 80s?

Agreed; terrible project. It’s an ugly eye sore. But hey, pay the right people and you can build anything in Miami…

This building is going to be such an eyesore. I really see no appeal in its design. I really hope someone steps in at some point and kills this project before it’s too late.

Hideous Monstrosity!

I think the reason people don’t like the design is because they don’t understand what it is. I need you guys to Google observation towers an ask yourself is any of them beautiful structures? Most of them are pretty ugly! None of them that I’ve seen would be a right fit for Miami… at this point I’ve seen renders of Skyrise so often over the years it has grown on my an actually fits Miami in my eyes. It’s hard to believe with so many squared stucco boxes in Miami people really have an issue with the only unique buildings I’ve seen

I’d agree that most keep people hate because they don’t know what it is, what it does, or what a marvel it is to build.
Whoever said it looked like a crane….it is.
The core will be built to the top, then the “floors” (built offsite), will be floated in on a barge, the Skyrise will then lift its own “floors” up and they will lock into place.

Is that a Ferris wheel on the top?

The Chinese are building this?!?

Anonymous

I wouldn’t be surprised if they tag it with ” Made in Taiwan ” somewhere on the tower.

Anonymous

No, that statement will definitely not appear.

A mainland Chinese company would probably take issue with putting a “Made in a Country that isn’t our country “ tag on their project.

Yes and they will be bringing in Chinese workers to build it. It has happened all over: New York, Wash DC, San Francisco, LA. Wake up.

Exactly. It’s happening all over the Caribbean and in many African countries, where they offer loans to build infrastructure while promising local jobs, only to find out that they bring hundreds of Chinese workers to do the work. They then exact exorbitant terms on the loans. When these countries default, the Chinese grab the properties many of which are located in coastal areas and are being converted to Chinese Military bases, thereby expanding China’s military reach.

So you’re saying Bayside is gonna be a Chinese naval base?

Don’t care as long as it gets built

Why is the government allowing a Communist state owned Chinese company to build anything in Miami? They only use Chinese labor in their projects worldwide. Will be interesting to see if the City of Miami or Tallahassee demand that local labor be utilized. If this was a company from communist Cuba there would be protests in the streets.

A Chinese state company is building this? I could see this becoming a problem if relations worsen.

Anonymous

Seriously. Why do we have to travel half way around the world for a company to build this?

Anonymous

Because they can build things FAST!

fast that fall apart

Believe me, that is not the reason. To think that is the case is to be very naive. They don’t need the money, or the jobs. What they’re after is influence and eventual ownership. Remember these companies are owned by the Chinese government. When they default, the Chinese government can and will lay claim to actual property in America. Consider this on a large scale and you will then begin to see what is happening.

Good question. It’s probably because these state owned Chinese companies are eagerly attempting to enter the US in whatever way they can. Local and State government can stop this but if there is no outcry from locals nothing will be done.

peej

Plaza Construction was announced as the GC back at the end of October.

It’s long been known that they’re Chinese-financed, so perhaps China State Construction Engineering Corporation is a sister company of theirs via ownership.

So the editor purposely wrote China State Construction Engineering Corporation instead of Plaza?

Anonymous

It’s just part of the story. A fact. Remember those.

Anonymous

It may have been edited after your comment, but it says Plaza will handle construction in Miami.

I don’t mind. Let the market finance its development if it’s feasible, not a communist country who prints money to worthlessness and competes unfairly with state-owned industries.

William

Wait until they start financing it and then foreclosing on it.. like they are doing in Africa and the bahamas…for all the big projects. Its a much more peaceful way of colonization.

There will be a few Turkey vultures bombing the people underneath

At ease soldiers. Its Plaza Construction. The company that is buiding Zaha Hadids 1000 Museum among many other projects.

I guess as they say beauty is in the eye of the beholder. My eye says this is a huge eye sore.

Legit needs to be a skyport since those other 2 towers are getting dedicated skyports this screams skyport

If it’s getting built by a Chinkie owned company I have concerns about how safe it is.

Ugly

So ugly.

Great news for a great project! I will predict it will become the biggest tourist attraction in Miami, and increase business and foot traffic by ten fold at Bayside.
