Currently under construction, new renderings of SkyRise Miami have been released, showcasing the 1,000-foot tower’s numerous mixed-use entertainment facilities from its prime location at the heart of Miami’s downtown core. Designed by local heavyweight Arquitectonica, the city’s tallest tower is being developed by Berkowitz Development Group, since the project’s inception in 2013. Dubbed a “Vertical Entertainment Center”, the skyscraper is a conglomeration of observation decks, music venues, banquet halls, VIP services, family-centred activities and even extreme, adrenaline pumping experiences. Visitors can experience a 462 feet bungee drop with the “Sky Plunge” or fly in a zero gravity tunnel at the top of the observation tower with the “Sky Fall”. The latest addition to these extreme activities is “Sky Way”, a series of rotating pods located on the outer rim of the asymmetrical building. With the intention of offering unparalleled views of Miami, the structure of these pods in tandem with the building are being designed to withstand wind speeds of up to 186 miles per hour.  View more View full description
