SkyRise Miami is the proposed project that would stand as the tallest building in Florida, rising 1,000 feet in the air. The project would be downtown, by Bayside Marketplace. It has been likened to the Eiffel Tower and the St. Louis Gateway Arch. Planned amenities included observation decks, a restaurant, nightclub, ballroom, an interactive exhibit and rides. The construction was expected to begin mid-2014, but this iconic project has hit some bumps along the way. Jeff Berkowitz, the developer, was denied $9,000,000 in county funding recently after Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado urged commissioners to reject it because there is a debate if it was disclosed that county dollars would be pursued to complete this project. With one county commissioner missing from the meeting that denied Berkowitz the necessary money, the committee agreed to take up the SkyRise vote again at a future meeting.
