Standing 100 stories above the city waterfront, the SkyRise Miami observation tower plans to offer some of the most stunning views in South Florida. And that’s before visitors step beyond the walls and take a ride on the glass domes creeping up the building’s exterior.
As the $430 million tourist attraction continues to pursue the investment dollars needed to go vertical, more details are emerging on the features developer Jeffrey Berkowitz expects to make it profitable. Plans filed with Miami reveal 20 glass-walled lounges on tracks on the tower’s exterior, allowing the observation orbs to creep up and down throughout the day.
“We believe the SkyWay attraction is poised to become a signature attraction,” Spencer Crowley, SkyRise lawyer, wrote in a Feb. 28 letter to Miami planners.
