Currently under construction, SkyRise Miami has released new renders showing the many mixed-use entertainment options of the 1,000-foot tower from its prime location in the heart of downtown Miami’s downtown area. The tallest tower in the city was designed by local heavyweight Arquitectonica and has been under development by the Berkowitz Development Group since the project began in 2013.

Dubbed the “vertical entertainment hub,” the skyscraper is a conglomerate of viewing platforms, music venues, banquet halls, VIP services, family-oriented activities, and even extreme adrenaline pumping. Visitors can experience a 462 foot high bungee drop with the “Sky Plunge” or fly in a weightless tunnel on 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 on the outer edge of the asymmetrical building. With the intent to offer an unparalleled view of Miami, the structure of these pods along with the building was designed to withstand wind speeds of up to 186 miles per hour.

Numerous observation decks offer 40 miles of views from the top of SkyRise. The public can also walk a glass deck 866 feet above the ground or take a handrail-free stroll at 908 feet. Additional virtual reality amenities and a “flying theater” add to the views and unprecedented views made possible by Miami’s greatest future entertainment attraction.
Construction work for SkyRise Miami is expected to be completed this year. Check out the video below to learn more about the project.
