Turkey’s Foreign Minister Visits Okan Tower Site In Downtown Miami

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu visited Miami last week, and made a stop at the Okan Tower site.

The 70-story tower is being built by Turkish developer Bekir Okan.

Video posted to social media shows Cavusoglu touring the site with Okan, and looking at a model of the project in a sales center.

While in Miami, Cavusoglu also met with Muslim community leaders and the city’s mayor, according to Hurriyet Daily News.

Melo will finish their tower (downtown 5th) before Okan Tower breaks ground…

Melo’s not exactly a speed demon these days.

This and the Melo tower will transform that block around that area. The new train station is a block away too as is Miami World Center. The issue is all the homeless people who live on the block between this lot and the train station. Its ground zero in downtown for blight and they trash the place every weekend when the church nearby gives away free food. While this might make the immediate area safer, and make walking from the train station to Bayfront Park not as dicey, theres still gonna be a couple of blocks that I wouldnt want to walk through

He is reportedly exceptional at diverting the attention of potential investors from the bums on the sidewalk out front and the county jail out back.

That is a federal prison not a county jail, some of the people in there could buy a condo in this building.

I always questioned their sales gallery location. The bums are taking over that area!

Where he was promptly asked for change by no less than 6 panhandlers. lmao

Istanbullshit

Moneyed people from Manhattan and Wellesley and Lake Forest would never invest big bucks for condos in this crap location. They’re sophisticated buyers. They gotta hustle the foreigners who don’t know any better. Compared to Turkey, the area might look pretty darn good.

You’re just angry because you can’t afford to live downtown. This is where everyone wants to live.

Istanbullshit

No, the real money wants to be on the oceanfront, where I live.

Only gullible foreigners and stuck-in-mom’s Hialeah spare bedroom dream of living where this tower is planned.

So you would say the same thing about Brickell? lol

Instanbullshit

No, I said it about this immediate area. Learn to read, not ASSume.

Welp, ask me in 5-10 years if you think this area still sucks. Also, I pray that your oceanfront property doesn’t go under with the rising sea levels.

OKAY you can put down your downtown pom poms now

men, men ,men,men…we are all muslim men and we make all the decisions!
The building is designed as a crescent and star, the symbol of the Ottoman Empire and by extension the Islamic World. We love Miami, it’s the only city that would allow us to express ourselves…Allah yücedir!

It’s a tulip, and by you’re masculine comment, I would’ve thought you’d talk about its shape from a different perspective.
