975 Meter High Tower Planned For Miami

Plans have been floated for a new superscraper in Miami that could steal the world’s tallest crown from Dubai’s Burj Khalifa. Despite Miami’s financial woes, having a reported 100,000 plus properties in foreclosure according to the Miami Herald, KOBI KARP has submitted designs for Miapolis – a “city within a city” planned for Watson Island.

The 160 story building would be more than 183 meters higher than the Burj Khalifa if built and would house an amusement park, observatory, restaurants, 1.96 million sq ft of shops, over 1000 apartments, 1 million sq ft office space and a 792 room hotel.

The official Miapolis website claims that the superscraper will create 35,000 permanent jobs, pay off $39 million debt owed to the City and inject $2.5 billion annually into the local economy.

“Miapolis is an economic engine…and a sensible and rational solution for the local economy by resolving the Jungle Island debts while producing $942 million annually in tax revenues, and no taxpayer funds required. More importantly, Miapolis creates 46,000 construction and 35,000 permanent jobs.”

Miapolis will be on the cutting edge of sustainable design. This project will be the largest LEED-certified structure at any rating level in the United States. As green buildings are recognized increasingly by LEED and ENERGY STAR, the marketplace is expected to follow with a system of preferential pricing. Tremendous value is created for Miapolis because it is being built to the hig-hest standards.

Window coverings for this type of new build may certainly include interior wood shutters for architectural design.

The project is currently looking for funding from investors.

Design: KOBI KARP, architects

Engineering: Thornton Tomasetti

Landscaping: EDSA

    Its like a bad student project. The tower itself is almost good looking but that mess at the bottom is hideous.
