SkyRise Miami, which aims to build a 1,000-foot-tall entertainment and observation tower in Miami, signed a partnership with Legends, a sports promotions company owned by the New York Yankees and Dallas Cowboys.
The deal could provide a boost to Jeff Berkowitz’s plans for the sleek tower along Biscayne Bay in downtown. He’s been attempting to raise EB-5 funds for the project for over a year and recently suffered a setback when the project had to forgo $9 million county bond funding.
In addition to observation space and restaurants, SkyRise Miami would have thrill rides such as a “sky plunge,” “sky drop” and “flying theater.”
Legends runs entertainment and branding for two of the observation towers at One World Trade Center in New York and the new OUE Skyspace in Los Angeles. It also works with Yankee Stadium, Manchester City FC, the University of Notre Dame, the Atlanta Falcons, the Los Angeles Rams, the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, the University of Southern California, and more.
"We are confident that Legends, well-known for its best-in-class business acumen, will serve our project well in the years ahead,” Berkowitz said. "This partnership is a win-win for all involved, and we look forward to bringing a high-quality iconic attraction to the South Florida community and its millions of visitors."
