Miami, Aug 28 IANS | 2 months ago

The voters of Miami in the US have approved a proposal by a real estate promoter to build a 1,000 feet high observation tower here.


Sixty-nine percent of the voters approved the plans of developer Jeff Berkowitz to erect the SkyRise tower, and work on the project should commence next week and be finalised as early as 2017.

Berkowitz expressed his happiness with the result of the referendum and said that what he calls 'Miami's Eiffel Tower' will become Florida's tallest structure.

Berkowitz in November 2013 presented to the Miami city authorities his plan for building the highest tower.

The structure is slated to rise above the Bayside Marketplace with an aerodynamic design as well as attractions such as a sky plunge, an 800-foot vertical drop, a 600-foot bungee cord and a virtual flying theatre.

The tower, which will cost about $400 million, will have three observation decks, a restaurant, a nightclub, a flight simulator, meeting rooms and a hall for interactive exhibits, among other features.
